It's not surprising that so many people return here time and time again. The welcome on our fifth visit in ten years was once again warm and helpful, the location relaxing and beautiful. The view from our apartment balcony is still one of our top favourites. There are plenty of places to visit nearby - we particularly like Cortona and Siena but there is a wide choice of possible destinations for excursions. It is an ideal location for families, friends and all age groups.

This accommodation is nestled in the Tuscan hills. The villas are very simple, but good value. There is a swimming pool area and lush gardens. The views over the Niccone valley are incredible. The village is remote, a car is essential. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Ideal for a holiday cut off from the rest of the world.

Room Tip: Villa Gioia has the best balcony.

The place is wonderfull because is in the Toscana and very near of the Umbria. It is a small oasis of peace and rest in the middle of a beautiful valley. The surroundings of the House are also beautiful. We were three families with children and youngers and enjoy with Tuscan and houses. They are fresh, comfortable and are side by side. The pool, fantastic! But the best, Marilena´sfamily!!

We had an excellent holiday at Marilena la Casella with spacious and comfortable accommodation. The family were friendly and helpful making our stay most enjoyable. We love the Tuscan and Umbrian borders and made the most of the great eateries there, including the on site restaurant which we used for breakfast and a couple of evening meals. We would recommend Marilena la Casella to those who love the Italian country life.

Very friendly and beautiful spot in Umbria, not far from Cortona.

Pros:
1) Location: Simply beautiful and the farm's garden is incredible
2) Friendly management who will do anything to help you
3) Great cooking and house wine
4) Wonderful pool and grounds. There is even a soccer field.
5) On site laundry

Cons:
1) Location: It's far from towns (this is both a pro and a con). You will need a car.
2) Limited English - this wasn't a problem for us, however it could be for you

I can only dream to someday return!

A peaceful location in the hills above Lake Trassimeno, well equipped comfortable accomodations on the farm. Guiseppe and Marilena are very friendly hosts, but to get the best from your stay here some knowledge of Italian is desireable as their English is limited. We enjoyed our stay here and Marilena's cooking is first class and a flagon of wine with your dinner represents excellent value.
A car is essential, it is a long walk to anywhere else! Following driving instructions provided by the owners will get you there.
Takes about 30 minutes to Perugia and Castiglione, both well worth a visit, especially the centro storico of the latter.

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.
