“Wow!”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well, where does one start! It was not a holiday...it was an experience. You must go as it is the only way to feel the whole experience. A pool with crystal clear water. Luxury everywhere you look. Renovated to outstanding condition yet retaining the original feel and tranquillity. Attention to detail second to none. The staff were wonderful, cheerful, professional, and to top it all wonderful cooks! We had the breakfast and evening meals. Excellent food of the highest standard.
A special thank you to Chrissie and David at Casa San Gabriel

“Idyllic.”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

As part of a water-colour painting group we stayed in the wonderful accommodation of Chiesa del Carmine for one week.This is abeautifully restored 14th century church building and farmhouse.which have now become a most comfortable and spacious lounge (with a grand piano) and well appointed bedrooms with en-suites.There was an excellent, fully equipped pool which we used well and so many small sheltered seating areas where we could sit quietly and paint.And all this in the midst of glorious scenery and beautifully maintained grounds.!

“Unbelievable Beauty for a Wedding in Umbria”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This particular villa, is a remarkable place that will exceed every hope and dream you may have. Every inch of the property has been tastefully attended to and is beautifully clean. The beds, pillows and bedding was so comfortable that my mother, who is a notoriously light sleeper, slept better than she has in years. We all thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the beautiful large kitchen which has every amenity you could need. The grand piano was enjoyed by everyone and the sound system was great for when we needed a little light background music for dinner. It ended up being a bit cool for a few days so Luciano kindly brought us some wood to have a fire in the evenings which was so enjoyable.
The gardens, pool area and surrounding hills are incredibly picturesque. We enjoyed everything from walks, early morning coffee at the outdoor dinning table to swimming in the pool and resting on the pool beds. Everything has been thought of to make your experience restful, enjoyable but mostly inspirational. We are all inspired to go back!
Everything is made even better by the wonderful staff. Chrissie and David were so kind and always took the time help us with anything. David gave us some insight into the resurrection of the buildings which was incredibly interesting. We celebrated our symbolic wedding ceremony at Villa del Carmine. Chrissie, Alessandra and Lilliana could not have been more wonderful. They created the most beautiful dinning table I have ever seen in the Church. They kept is a surprise for us until we walked in.. Everybody is still talking about how beautiful it was, I could not feel more lucky to have had them arrange everything.
Thank you to

“Absolutely perfect large family reunion location.”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were truly delighted with our villa. it is beautifully restored, elegant yet very comfortable with a lovely ambiance. Chrissie and David made us iso warmly welcome and all the staff were most friendly and helpful. Alessandra the chef was charming and accomplished and we had fun with our cooking lesson. We had five young children with us, age yrs and younger and we found the separate sleeping accommodation for all of us over the courtyard in the old farmhouse to be ideal. The adults could enjoy their pre-dinner drinks and dinner in the Church area without being concerned about keeping the children awake. The villa is definitely family friendly and the estate is so picturesque with lovely walks around the vineyards and little ponds. A wonderful spot to use as your base for exploring Umbria.

“Simply phenomenal!”
Reviewed September 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent a week with our family at the Chiesa del Carmine from June 27th to July 4th, 2015, to celebrate our symbolic wedding on July 2nd, for 30 of our close friends and family.

Two words describe our experience – simply phenomenal!!

From the moment we arrived and were warmly and professionally greeted by Chrissie, the property manager, we knew we’d made an excellent choice. This was further reinforced when we were given a tour of the farm house and grounds. The property has beautifully manicured gardens, a sparkling swimming pool, stunning vistas, superb accommodations, a well-appointed kitchen, and excellent locations for al fresco dining along with warm and comfortable common areas for gathering with loved ones. The pictures on the website truly reflect what the property is!

The Chiesa is also an impressive venue to host a wedding. While we’re sure it can accommodate well over 50 guests, it was very comfortable for our group. Our ceremony was held in the Chiesa and thereafter, aperitifs, appetizers and a five course meal, which was superbly prepared, presented and served under beautiful azure Umbrian skies. Our night finished with dancing into the wee hours. It was a fabulous event and one we will remember for a lifetime. Perhaps in ten years we’ll all gather again to celebrate – although we’d actually love to do it annually!!

We unreservedly recommend the Chiesa for anyone with discriminating tastes and high expectations.

“Amazing, scenic, and private getaway”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Chiesa Del Carmine is a scenic, rustic villa that is perfect for a getaway for family and friends. While it has modern amenities, the exterior and surrounding land keep it's old age charm and provide the quintessential Italian countryside experience. It has many different areas for large family gatherings (e.g., pool, playground, indoor and outdoor large dining tables) along with secluded areas for when you want to be alone.

The staff that maintains the villa (e.g., caterers, grounds crew, cleaning services), are friendly people that provide high quality service; they care for the house as if it was their own. The villa is conveniently located to local markets and shops, as well as many old towns (e.g., Assisi) that are worth touring.

Chiesa del Carmine is an amazing vacation spot for bonding between family and friends; it is the ultimate Italian vacation experience.

“Perfection”
Reviewed May 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We all arrived at various times on the Saturday afternoon/late evening. The cooks were very accommodating in providing 1st class food that was most welcoming on our arrival. The excellent standard of food and service continued throughout our stay.
The accommodation was excellent in the most idyllic setting and the feedback from all the members of our party was 10 out of 10.
