The one bedroom apartment of Frantoio is spacious and well equipped for a couple. The patio was the highlight though, we were able to chill out with our coffee or wine overlooking the Umbrian valley, vines and olive groves - with spectacular sunsets to boot. The property is also equipped with a semi-private pool, we shared the pool with another...

We had a very relaxing week staying in Ornellaia. A lovely two bedroom barn conversion with shared pool. I was really pleased with the standards and facilities at the property, it was better than being at home! I loved how the owners have decorated the property, its really tastefully done so not your average self catering let with bare walls...

We stayed in Sassicaia, its in a fantastic location overlooking the Umbrian Hills and the local village. The apartment is beautifully furnished and quite spacious. There are two bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The outdoor eating area was a highlight and a lovely place to spend the evenings. The pool was perfect and Alina was a fantastic host. I...

My husband, 4 children and i spent a day with Lucia and her family and it was everyone's favorite day of our 2 week European vacation. First, Il Fontanaro is absolutely beautiful, in the middle of rolling hills of olive trees surrounded by beautiful gardens. We were welcomed with some fabulous espresso and then Alina, the owner's daughter, taught us...

We stayed in Brunello and It was absolutely perfect! There were two couples and we had plenty of space. The outdoor covered deck was a fantastic place to hang out. The pool was very large and salt water with terrific views of the hills. It was a beautiful home newly built but maintained the old world feeling of Umbria. They...

This is one of those Italian gems that make the country and Umbria a perfect destination for couples and families. Lucia, Alina and Giovanni were fantastic hosts who welcomed us to their family farm. Their hospitality and generosity of their time made this a truly remarkable holiday. They run a truly organic farm of olive groves, vineyard and a delightful...

We recently took our first family holiday, with our 10 month old son, at this amazing place. We stayed at Desiderio which is a 5 minute drive from the centre of Paciano. We did not attempt to walk into town whilst we were there as it was a bit too hot for our little one and the roads to the...

We are a family with three very active boys (ages 10, 14 and 17.) A friend had recommended Fontanaro and we were excited to experience life on an olive oil farm, but coming from Los Angeles, we had no idea what to expect. It was everything we hoped for and more! We stayed at Brunello, which is a beautiful home...

there is much to say about our week spent at the Sassicaia Apartment. Just outside the village, one of five apartments set amongst a field of sunflowers and 360 degree views of Umbrian and Tuscan hillsides. It really is something out of a postcard beautiful and never gets old. The apartment amenities were delivered as promised with wifi and sky...

“It would be worth your while to stay for at least 5 days or more to truly enjoy the flavor of the countryside and Italian culture, Don't forget to stop at Michael's for coffee and luscious desserts in Castiaglione del Lago. Their C filled with Chantilly Cream is the best! Don't forget to stop at Michael's in Castiglione Del Lago for coffee and luscious pastries. They make the best Sfogliatelle filled with Chantilly Cream in all of Italy. Try to stay at least 5 -7 days to truly enjoy the local flavor and culture of Tuscany/Umbria regions.”
