We were lucky enough to stay at Casale Monticchio back in the summer of last year and we loved every moment. Every detail about this property has been well planned and thought out, we spent many hours lazing by the luxurious infinity pool, playing cards in the shade on the croquet lawn and had magical evenings dinning with our friends under the Umbrian sky. Family and friends had recommended Monticchio to us and we are so grateful they did, we have traveled to Italy many times from Melbourne, Australia, however we have never stayed anywhere like this. So relaxing but also so much to see and do within a short drive of the villa's. So taken were we with this beautiful place that we are taking a bunch of friends back there next year to celebrate our birthdays. I can't wait to see how our friends react when they see the place, it is truly unique and I know they will all go home raving about how wonderful it is. Andrew and Hugues ensure that every detail is taken care of, they are truly the most wonderful hosts I have ever encountered. I would recommend Casale Monticchio to anyone, fabulous holiday destination!
