“A lasting memory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

My husband and I had been traveling for about one month by car when we found Tenuta Sospesa by chance. Manolle was wonderful! She spoke very good English which was really important for us. She immediately sat down with us and showed us on maps many local sights that we were interested in (hiking, hot springs, shops, chocolate festival, etc.). She even made a special effort to get us tickets to a blues festival we were interested in that was sold out! The villa was well equipped and comfortable. The surroundings beautiful. All in all a really great week there - very hard to leave and will be a lasting memory....

Thanks for placing a review on Tenuta Sospesa. It sounds like you had a wonderful and relaxing break which is the aim of the game so thanks for sharing this with us. You are right , the surroundings are beautiful and the unique location of Tenuta Sospesa makes it perfect to discover both Umbria itself and Tuscany. We are happy that you took advantage of the numerous activities existing in the area: wine tours in the vineyards and tastings of olive oil, tours with boats to the isles of Lake Trasimeno, hot springs and thermal baths, tours in characteristic Vespas, mountain bike, trekking, chocolate courses, cooking classes, etc..
We look forward to welcoming you back again in the not too distant future.

What a fabulous Villa, just like Under the Tuscan Sun. When we arrived we were met by our host Manoelle. She took us on a tour of the property and the Villa and we were thrilled with our selection of Villa's. The property is beautifully landscaped and the Villa is well appointed with a full kitchen. There is an authentic pizza oven on the property and is a wouderful experience to cook in. We can't say enough about how thrilled we were and would hghly recommend this Villa.

Tenuta Sospesa was everything we had hoped for and more, it is a lovely place to stay, with beautiful surrounding gardens (with fruit trees, a pizza oven and swimming pool!) and a charming (and clean) house with fully equipped kitchen for self catering. The surrounding country side is beautiful and peaceful and there are lots of brilliant things to go and see and do a short drive from the house (it is quite important to have a car). We had an utterly blissful stay and would highly recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: We had rented the whole house (4 double bedrooms) and I would recommend doing so if you have enough...

Everything about this place was truly wonderful:
The location is peaceful yet within comfortable distance to lots of interesting places, and the owner offered great tips for trips.
The property is among the most beautiful we have seen in both Umbria and Tuscany - beautiful and peaceful pool and garden.
The apartment we stayed in was extraordinarily clean, functional and welcoming and the service was truly magnificent: The owner - Manoelle - really goes out of her way to ensure a comfortable stay and both we and our kids felt truly welcome. Everything was in splendid working order from dish washing machine to wi-fi coverage (which cannot always be taken for granted..).
Highly recommended.

We (meaning two middle-aged couples with teenage children) have been guests in Tenuta Sospesa for a week in July. The house - an old farmhouse converted - and the surrounding property are exquisite, not in terms of luxury, but taste. If what you desire from an Italian holiday is tranquility, comfort (not pampering), authenticity and easy access to gorgeous places in Northern Lazio (Bagnoregio, Viterbo, Bolsena), Umbria (Asissi, Spello, Todi, Gubbio, Orvieto, Castellucio, Perugia) and even Southern Tuscany (San Gimignano, Siena, etc.) this is the place.
You will have a non-intrusive but competent and passionate advisor in Manoelle, the owner and kind of curator of this beautiful place. Besides, great nature, wine, food. Having a car, owned or rented is highly recommended. I also think the best experience is to rent the entire house (two apartments) with some folks you know and like. We enjoyed every single day.

Located in a very nice and quiet area the entire villa is beautiful the garden is gorgeous and very good swimming pool. There are a lot of places, small medieval towns, worth a visit in Umbria and all being close to the hotel, the day can be closed with a dip in the pool for relaxation. I spend a great week in Tenuta Sospesa.

Things that we loved:
•The location in Umbria – very quiet and tucked away. Great for active kids! The lightning bugs kept them busy at night!
•The property is large, has many beautiful garden areas and yards for kids to play, outdoor porches, patios and seating areas, a wonderful swimming pool
•The owner, Manuelle and her welcoming smile, was very gracious. She sat down with us and provided wonderful recommendations on sites to see and for incredible places to eat.
•The apartment we had was very spacious and had a full kitchen, two bedrooms, nice bathroom, dining area and sitting area – along with all the space outside.
Overall, this place was just perfect. I'm hesitant to post a review because I don't want it to become a popular place! We are definitely going to return again and might even stay longer. 5 Stars!!
