About Gilly Carey
Mama Gigi and Don Gordioni, as we are affectionately known, welcome all our guests as if they are friends and enjoy spoiling them. Gilly loves cooking and entertaining and Gordon loves the dishwasher! The house reflects our love of art and interior design whilst it maintains a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere for guests. Gilly is very house proud and is always making sure everything is up to her high standards and loves pottering in the garden or giving diving lessons to the smaller guests. Gordon enjoys his jeep with the roof off in the summer and smaller guests love a trip up the hill on the rough roads. With 7 grandchildren of our own, DVDs, toys, books, swings and the tree house are very popular.
Why Gilly Carey chose Umbertide
Green Umbria was the perfect choice for our holiday home, stunning countryside and amazing landscapes. Although we are at the top of a hill, we are only 10 minutes from the supermarket and a range of restaurants to suit all tastes. There are lots of interesting towns and hilltop villages to explore and in the summer many local festivals to enjoy. There are some great wine areas nearby as well as great cycling and walking for those not wanting to spend all the time next to the pool
What makes this Villa unique
We are very particular about making sure our guests' needs are fully met and will do our best to fulfill their requests so they leave well relaxed. Children are most welcome and Mama Gigi keeps a great stock of crisps, ice creams and biscuits as well as baking great cakes and buns to spoil them. The house is fully stocked with shopping on arrival so the guests can relax, should they wish a full service of meals this can be arranged with menu discussions beforehand or food prepared for them to cook. The area around the pool is great for barbecues and cocktails, although the six o'clock rule sometimes gets forgotten!

Stunning home, perfect for a family getaway
We stayed with Gilly and Gordon for three nights in April and had a fantastic experience. First off, the home is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. They restored the original house and did quite a bit of work to modernize all properties and the landscaping. It's truly gorgeous.
Gilly and a Gordon were wonderful wonderful hosts. Two British expats who fell in love with Italy and really welcome you into their homes. Gilly was so thoughtful as to load up our fridge with essentials, and prepared an incredibly delicious meal for us on night one. It was so nice to just sit and talk with them, we even got a tour of their personal home (which is gorgeous).
We stayed in the farmhouse which was perfect for our family of five- two young kids included. Since the home is a bit remote, Gilly has plenty of wine for purchase so you don't have to worry about driving into town, can cook any meal you'd like and helped us arrange for a car to take us to/from dinner in Montone one night. They were full of recommendations for where to go and what to do for the day as well.
We highly recommend this beautiful home in stunning Umbria. You also can't beat the views!
Finding the right words to describe our holiday will not do justice to how absolutely fantastic it really is.
Our accommodation was beautiful with great attention to detail, providing everything that we needed, and more.
From the moment we arrived the welcome we received was so warm, that we knew it was going to be a holiday that would be special.
The apartment for the four of us was just the right size, the modern kitchen had everything we needed, lovely bathroom with a fantastic powerful shower. All linens were provided, even towels for the pool area which meant more space in the suitcases.
The patio and especially the pool area were great for chilling out and the view across the valley took our breath away time and time again.
The main house of Casa Baldelli and the Tobacco Barn are simply stunning. Gilly and Gordon's hard work in renovating the three properties are an absolute credit to them, you cannot be anything but impressed at the style and detail, yet each one has a warmth and ties in beautifully to its surroundings.
We would not hesitate to recommend you stay here, you will not be disappointed, and will most certainly want to return.
Gilly, your hospitality was so generous, and the meals fantastic, thank you so much, and having the gorgeous happy, gentle dogs around made it feel more like home. This was a holiday to remember.
With so many thanks, Sue, Julie, Kev and Bernard
As good as it gets…simply stunning!
We just returned from a 3 day stay in the barn as the property had been recommended by friends as a potential venue for a 40th birthday party. We visited in January, so it was obviously too cold to swim. But the sunsets were amazing, the fire was warming and the company and food spot on.
Of course the real star here was Gilly…she was exceptional : nothing was too much trouble, she is a wonderful cook, a gracious host with a great sense of humour who can also recommend the best local haunts if you want to eat or drink outside, personal trainers, wine tastings, etc (you won't want to leave).
As she and Her husband live there, the house is cared for in a way that you don't see with other rental properties, everything works and looks immaculate and Gilly and the delightful dogs are always on hand, but the property is big enough for complete privacy if you want it. Near to Perugia and surrounded by beautiful villages, it is a little slice of paradise, and we'll definitely be returning as often as we can.
And yes, I booked it for my 40th in the summer!

Wonderful place with an outstanding view and host
We had a wonderful stay at the tobacco barn. The place is designed with style and taste. Everything one can need is there. Gilly is a great host and was very helpful, from concierge to being our local baker and butcher:) We will definetly want to come back.
Just had the most relaxing break at Casa Baldelli. This was my second visit and I would go back again and again! Gilly is the perfect host and has thought of every last detail to make this a really special place to stay. She made incredible gluten free meals (including a sunday roast!!) which we enjoyed on the terrace... along with several bottles of presecco! I cant recommend this place highly enough, the house is STUNNING and Gilly (aka Mama Gigi) is a wonderful host.
