We came here at the last minute when we found ourselves in umbria unexpectedly. What a find! We are on the other side of Italy at the moment, and are considering coming back. The best hospitality, the best food. And the ambiance – to die for. We really felt like we got special attention from the proprietor; well that is because we did. This place is off the beaten path; we almost tuned back looking for the place. It is about a 2k gravel road after about a 5 k drive off main streets. Once we got there, my husband thought we would go hungry because he did not want to drive back out. Wrong. We had the best meal of our Italy trip which was really the best food we have ever had! Good wine too. And at a really reasonable price. The place is a really well restored group of buildings, one main villa made into hotel-type rooms with the restaurant, and another few buildings all a bit separated, made into apartments for rent. The pictures on the website do justice. I do not know if they had wifi; something about this place makes you want to tune out for a while. The peaceful atmosphere is contagious. From the hilltop this villa sits, you can see hills in every direction all with ancient ruins or restored villas of their own. The pool was refreshing and we partook every day. We walked on numerous gravel paths to work off the excellent food we over indulged upon. We discovered a clear lake, and we explored ruins. They did not have AC, which we missed, and out room was directly above the restaurant/bar and with the window open because of the warmth, the noise was a problem when a large group checked in. However, we would do it again; and we probably will.
The property is a main villa that includes the restaurant and office, and other villas a ways from each other turned into apartments for rent.
