We keep coming back - 5 times over 10 years and although the place has changed and grown, it's our own little retreat in Umbria from a hectic life in London. We always return to a warm, friendly and genuine welcome from Giuseppe and Marilena and their family. Easy to find, well located for day trips, you can do as much or as little as you need need to create a wonderful holiday. The scenery is stunning, the quiet of the countryside with the distant noises of the farmers in the fields during the day and in the evening the dogs barking to each other through the valley, it truly feels like a second home to us. Whether eating out (Pizzeria in Lisciano Niccone), an excellent dinner in the restaurant prepared by Marilena, or dinner on the terrace with its stunning views, it's the perfect place to relax and unwind or spend day after day exploring the countryside or even Florence or Rome. The accommodation is clean, well appointed (washing machine, dishwasher etc), comfortable and above all, quiet. The pool area has natural shade under the olive trees with lots of sun beds and the property and pool are extremely well maintained. The family are only too willing to help with anything you may need and there's a great wifi service for those (like me) who can't leave technology at home! For couples, families or friends, this place offers the discerning traveller a delightful peek at rural life in Umbria where the influx of tourists is not, thankfully, immediately obvious. We simply love it.

Our very large family stayed at the Country House Marilena in July 2012 and we had a wonderful experience. This is a family run business that provides excellent value and relaxation. They were terrific to each of our children, treating them with smiles and enthusiasm. The meals were superb, cooking lessons were fun and informative. The swimming pool was a blast as was the football field. The house is tucked in a beautiful area with a lot of history surrounding it. The family went out of their way to help us get train schedules for a couple of day trips, and provided information on other things to do in the area and hooked us up with some horseback riding (about 1 hour away). Their website is very informative and they were very responsive to our questions via email. WiFi didn't work throughout the whole house, but it worked in the living room/kitchen areas and on the patio-the connection was relatively fast (I don't recall much delay on the speed).

A great place to relax: beautiful countryside, comfy rooms and nice people.

There are also wifi, a swimming pool and even a soccer field! Highly recommended.

Very relaxing, very helpful and great value. Sharing the pool with a couple of other families gave our children new friends to talk to. This is the fourth year we've stayed and Marilena was kind enough to post back to us a couple of hats we left behind.

Beautiful countryhouse in the surrounding mountains of lake Trasimeno. Very quiet and cosy. 5 Appartments with each one sufficient privacy; swimming pool and small restaurant on the complex; BBQ, playground and soccerfield. Typical great Italian hospitality. All the cities to visit are in the neighboorhood; Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Siena, Gubbio, Florence and Rome. We spent a fourtnight in Rome, which you can easily reach by train from Castiglione. Railway is cheap and you end in the ancient center of Rome!
This was our 4th. stay at San Martino and we will certainly come back to this beautiful spot in the heart of Italy and to Marilena and Giuseppe Ciambelli!
