Great location and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loves our stay! We had plenty of room and the location was perfect for exploring the hill towns. It was always fun driving up to the castle. Would have been nice to know the history of the area and the castle.

Characterful apartment in castle

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in the Castle apartment which is cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The apartment is completely private, is set within the old castle, and has been sympathetically restored with lots of character. The overall environment is wonderfully atmospheric. The terrace, which is a short walk down the hillside away from the castle has a similarly atmospheric feel, being again very private, sheltered and with panoramic views across the valley and overlooking the Tiber.

The location is very convenient both for shopping (with the main supermarket being about 5 minutes drive away) and for places to visit. Siena is about 1 hour 30 minutes drive away with Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto and Narni being much closer. We were spoilt for choice in terms of where to go and almost missed out on Carsulae which, as an interesting and open excavation of the major Roman town in Ubria, made a nice change to Umbrian/Tuscan hilltop towns which inevitably dominated our holiday.

Our thanks to Steffano for a great week and warm welcome.

magnifique région

  • 4 of 5

Dans un ancien chateau du moyen age, plusieurs appartements mitoyens ont été aménagés. Nos voisins avaient un bébé qui nous a réveillé la nuit à plusieurs reprises. Le gite est assez enclavé et ne bénéficie pas d'une vue à proprement parler. le gite est constitué d'un appartement au premier étage et d'un jardin qui n'est pas attenant : il faut faire environ 50 mètres sur un terrain escarpé pour arriver au jardin. Du jardin, la vue est magnifique sur toute la vallée, c'est un vrai tableau ! Nous avons regretté que le jardin ne soit pas attenant, l'accès un peu difficile et les moustiques trop nombreux ce qui fait que nous n'avons jamais mangé dehors. De plus, il y a 3 escaliers avec de très hautes marches dans le gite aussi je ne le conseille ni aux familles avec des enfants en bas âge ni aux personnes âgées qui ont des difficultés avec les escaliers. Par contre, le gite est bien situé dans le territoire et la région est magnifique et riche en patrimoine. Nous gardons un bon souvenir de notre séjour en Ombrie et du gite de Montemolino.

Owner's Response: Nous regrettons le commentaire n° 12798523 mais, nous devons apporter quelques précisions: la description de l'appartement est clairement présentée dans notre annunce publiée sur Homelidays. Les escaliers de l'appartement ainsi que le jardin non attenant a la maison sont mentionnés sur l'offre. L'appellation" cielo-terra" signifie que la maison est disposée sur plusieurs étages. L'hote se plaint des moustigues et de pleurs d' un bébé qui sont des faits occasionels et particulièrement liés aux vacances du mois d'aout. Nous conseillons donc de lire attentivement la description en fonction de laquelle l'hote pourra choisir en connaissance de cause.

Endroit magnifique - Château magique !

  • 5 of 5

Ce château de Montemolino est très bien aménagé dans un décor typique. Idéal pour une famille (6 places + pour dormir). Les lits sont très confortables. Deux salles de bain complètes avec eau chaude à profusion.

Attenant au château (30 mètres), il y a une mini basse-cour – le coq vous réveillera !

Le clocher de l’église (30 mètres) sonne toutes les heures (sauf la nuit) et ajoute au plaisir de se retrouver sur la terrasse à siroter un bon vin et préparer le BBQ avec vue sur le Tibre (en bas à 100 mètres).

Ne pas oublier d’utiliser le romarin tout frais pour cuisiner.

Oliviers, figuiers, lauriers en fleurs…

Montemolino est assez central en Ombrie pour découvrir cette charmante contrée : Todi, MonteCastello, Orvieto, Sienne, etc…

Nous recommandons fortement ce château !

L’accueil chaleureux de Grazia Rita et Stefano Ruta ajoute au plaisir de se retrouver en Ombrie.

PS : pour se rendre directement et facilement au château si vous avez un GPS, tout simplement inscrire Montemolino Centre-ville et votre auto vous y amènera à moins de 5 mètres du château.

Soggiorno incantevole!

  • 5 of 5

Siamo appena rientrati da un piacevolissimo soggiorno, trascorso durante il Ponte di Ognissani, in questa amena localita'.

L'appartamento, molto "caldo" ed accogliente, ha allietato le nostre serate, trascorse dopo tre giornate a girovagare per queste terre, estasiati nell'ammirare le bellezze di questi luoghi: la dolcezza del paesaggio umbro, con i splendidi colori dell'autunno, han fatto da sfondo a Todi, ad Orvieto, alla Cascata delle Marmore, ed ancora, ai borghi di Deruta e Bettona.

Una breve ma intensa vacanza: ricca di emozioni, profumi e sapori!

Grazie ai cordialissimi proprietari, signori Ruta, per la squisita disponibilita' dimostrataci.

Sapori di altri tempi

  • 5 of 5

La casa si trova all'interno di un borgo medievale molto caratteristico con un interessante affresco "open air". La casa e molto carina e arredata con molto gusto ed il giardino (molto carino) gode di stupende vedute delle colline circostanti ed il lento scorrere del fiume Tevere aiuta a dimenticare i ritmi frenetici delle nostre vite (Se cercate pace e tranquillita, e sicuramente il posto giusto). I proprietari sono molto cortesi e sono una fonte d'informazione inesaurible circa la storia del borgo/castello o della zona di Todi Siamo stati molto bene e non esiterei a prenotare nuovamente. Grazie!
