“True Italian Countryside Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

The uniqueness of Mazzaforte is worth the trip alone to the Tuscan/ Umbrian border. It is located just outside the town of Umbritide, which sits an equal distance from either coast. My wife and I were in Italy on a three week adventure and spent the second week enjoying the peace and quiet of Simon and Sally 's property in the country hills. We stayed in L'Essicatoio, the farmhouse for either two or three people. Beautiful, quiet, comfortable and impressively updated. We love to cook and L'Essicatoio allowed us to prepare our meals comfortably while enjoying food and drink on the large, private, covered patio, overlooking the Niccone Valley, right off our sitting room. Mazzaforte is true country relaxation but close to so many of Italy's must see points of interest. We travelled by car to Florence, Assisi, Cortona, San Marino, Siena and many more, with the comfort of knowing we could look forward to the quiet nights back at Mazzaforte. The local markets allowed us to buy fresh each day and enjoy the flavours of the region. Simon and Sally's website is truly accuate in it's portrayal of what Mazzaforte offers. The pool, gardens and grounds are beautiful and only made our stay more enjoyable. We highly recommend Mazzaforte for all who want the true Italian experience!

Mazzaforte is a wonderfully restored property with three separate buildings, any or all of which can be rented depending on the size of the group. The British expat owners are on site and are as welcoming and helpful as they can be with as much or as little advise on the local area as desired. Although the buildings have full kitchens, my wife and I took advantage of the owners' (Sally and Simon) offer to provide dinner a few nights so we didn't have to go out or cook ourselves. It was wonderful to come back from a full day of site seeing to find a homemade three course meal waiting for us. The rooms themselves are modern, fully restored and tastefully decorated with great bathrooms and the view of the NIccone Valley from the property is spectacular. Access to Umbertide, the closest town, and the E45 highway was very easy. Umbertide is a half hour from Perugia via the regional train which drops you off a 10 minute walk from the historical center of town with its great shopping and upscale restaurants. The hill town of Cortona and train service to Florence from Terontola are both an easy 40 minute drive away. In fact, Deruta, Gubbio and Assisi are all an hour or less by car. Great place! Great hosts!
