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.
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

I stayed in Umbria with the wonderful Gilly in July 2014, this was my second visit and it just gets better! I can not speak highly enough of Gilly, she is the most fantastic host who goes over and above to ensure your stay is perfect. Her hospitality is incredibly special, she creates a unique atmosphere and makes her guests feel completely relaxed. The location and setting is truly beautiful and the food exquisite. Whilst there I made some great friends with other guests and I can not wait to return!
We stayed at Gilly's place in the Tobacco Barn when in Umbertide for a friends wedding. The stay was everything we could have hoped for. The accommodation is a beautifully restored property and has everything you could need. Gilly was very welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. We have a young son and he had a blast exploring the gardens, in the pool and playing with Gilly.
Gilly was fantastic, hosting a 1 year old birthday party and looking after our son while we were at the wedding.
I cannot recommend Gilly's enough. The property is truly excellent and Gilly is the most welcoming of hosts. We will be back..
Already 5 years have we visited this beautiful and friendly place. We love the friendly and wonderful hostess. Most important for us is quality and cleanliness. In every year completely new bedding. Different restaurants, golf club and shopping is half-hour drive away.
The most beautiful sunrise behind the mountains and in the midnight sky falling stars.
For our son the holiday in Casa Baldelli is the total hit of summer vacation.
We had the most amazing stay at CB in April this year! Gilly was a fantastic host and nothing was ever too much trouble for her. While the villa looks beautiful in the pictures it is truly stunning in real life. The attention to detail throughout CB is outstanding. It is a place of luxury were we could relax and enjoy sometime out from our hectic lives. The Villa offers the best of both worlds, by car you can easily access the larger towns in Umbria and beyond or you can choose to have lazy days lying around reading a good book while taking in the magnificent views! We can not wait to return next year!!
