We had such an enjoyable stay at Le Cisterne B&B. On hot July days the "India" room remained cool and at night time was perfectly quiet The terrace, where we enjoyed breakfast (home made bread and jams, accompanied by yoghurt and fresh fruit, coffee or tea) offered pleasant shade whenever we wanted. Silvia is a thoroughly charming hostess and knows... More

The bathrooms are also clean, spacious and well set-up. The kitchenette area for guests is also useful and makes for a very comfortable stay. Mention must... More

This was our first stop on our driving holiday in Umbria and was probably the nicest place we stayed. The old town is very beautiful and it was lovely to wander around. The Roman cisterne is fun to visit and the museum was interesting although there was no information in English. The only drawback of Amelia is a lack of... More

If you are looking for a friendly host who wants you to enjoy your stay in Amelia please stay here! The beds are comfortable and the courtyard is a lovely place to have coffee and watch the tortoises. Silvia picked me up from the train station and arranged a friend Helmut, to take us back to the station when we... More

This is a beautifully-located apartment in a picturesque part of the old town, called Le Cisterne because it is actually built over old Roman water cisternes which can be toured. There are two rooms available in the historic building which are separated by a fully-equipped kitchen, available for use by guests. Everything was very clean and in working order. There... More

We loved Amelia. It is a tranquil Umbrian town set in rolling hills. The cobblestone streets are steep in parts, but the cars are patient and never toot you! Silvia is exceptionally helpful and informative. She picked us up from the station, and cheerfully gave of her time and energy to help us. The b and b is well located,... More

I spent a weekend in Amelia attending a conference. Although I booked late but Silvia, the owner was most kind to accommodate so I had a place to stay. I am grateful for that. It felt like being a guest in someone's house, not the impersonal hotel experience. The house is old, charming, the interior spaces are intimate but private,... More

I spent a long weekend in Amelia during late June, attending a conference, and stayed at Silvia's B and B. She was fantastic, giving useful advice about where to eat etc. Silivia's English is great and she is most happy to assist with onward travel arrangements. The rooms are spacious and having wifi was an absolute bonus. The pet tortoises... More

Silvia and Gian Luca will make you feel at home, but still leave you your privacy. Their rooms are comfortable and quirky - a mile away from standard hotel rooms, but with everything that you need for a comfortable and relaxed stay. A real bonus was the wireless internet connection - for once, in Italy, it was actually problem-free! Amelia... More
