“An idyllic haven in the middle of busy Italy.”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

Beautiful peaceful property and wonderful care and attention from Francesca and Roberto. They were never obtrusive but always ready and willing to make our stay more than comfortable and interesting. Over our two week stay we benefitted from their generosity in so many ways. We collected cherries from the orchard, picked salad from their veggie garden and ate fresh eggs courtesy of the chooks.

We greatly enjoyed the sparkling pool which Roberto fastidiously maintained, and in the twilight loved looking over the roses, through the valley to Assissi perched on the hills beyond. Bustling Perugia is only 9kms away but you do need a car to get around. There are plenty of local supermarkets, particularly the A&O about 5km drive from the farm. Assissi, Ripa, Cortona, Spello, Gubbio and Spoleto are all accessible. We even had a day trip to Cevita and the huge lake at Belsena. Thank you, dear Francesca and Roberto, for your ongoing friendship and an amazing holiday.

“Amazing hospitality, location and well worth a visit”

We just spent 6 days at Natalia's beautiful villa and the entire family were all so sad to say goodbye to this gorgeous place and warm hospitality shown by our host. Natalia went out of her way to give us local advice and we were really impressed with the beauty of Umbria. The villa is within driving distance of some beautiful Italian villages and cities and we even made an awesome trip to the nearest beach. We enjoyed the fact that we didn't see another tourist for days at a time and were treated to picking and eating organic vegetables right from the garden. The house is very spacious with 4 large bedrooms and ample bathrooms and living areas. We made BBQs, ate outside and swam in the pool all day. Highly recommended.

“Perfect Holiday! Peace and Tranquility in a Glorious Setting”

Just returned from two weeks at this lovely property. We were two families (8 people in total) holidaying together. We received a wonderful welcome from Natalia and felt right at home. This is, just as other reviewers have said, a very special property and a wonderful area of Italy. The property is very well situated and we managed visits to Florence and Rome as well as lots of trips to the myriad of medieval towns in the local area. Umbria is unspoilt and certainly seems to be off the beaten track to the English Traveller - a bonus in our opinion! Natalia also had some wonderful recommendations for local restaurants (our favourite being the Pomegranate between Ripa and Pianella) and supermarkets (there is a fantastic hypermarket at the Collestrada) Our children (11 to 18) loved having the freedom to roam in the gated grounds and their enjoyment was enhanced by the family dogs, Zorba and Luca and the newly born kittens. We all loved the really good sized private pool and many a happy hour was spent just chilling there and drinking in the views. There was some internet access at this property, but it was very hit and miss and unsuitable for downloading anything - this wasn't a problem for us, because we didn't expect there to be any internet access and it actually enhanced our holiday as it meant that we were able to experience an `old fashioned' break without the kids being glued to their phones and IPads! :-) We did need the air conditioning in the property because temperatures have been unusually hot and those that weren't in the air conditioned bedrooms did suffer (although Natalia did everything she could to help by providing fans for the other two bedrooms) As we were two families travelling together our only small gripe was that it would have been good to have had two keys to the property, so that we could come and go more independently. All in all though, we had a marvellous time and felt that this property represented very good value for money. We have returned rejuvenated and revived and would strongly recommend this property to others.

I brought my grandsons to Italy to discover their roots.
We spent time with relatives on both sides. They treated us like royalty. I found my grandfathers tomb.
My grandson came away with great experience of their Italian heritage.

We ended up extending our stay here because we couldn't bear to leave! This accommodation was just what we were looking for and we would have remained a month (or longer) if our travel plans didn't push us to move on. We are a family of 4 (13 and 9 year old children included) and we found ourselves feeling very much at home here, only with the comforts of being in a very fine rental accommodation. The kids got to choose a room each out of the four that were available, and we, fortunately, got one at the other end of the apartment with our own en-suite....privacy at last (much needed after traveling for so long!). The rooms were cool and blocked out the light when it was needed due to the large shutters on the windows/doors and, when the shutters were open, the views over the valley were idyllic. On a clear day you could see Assisi in the distance and the town lights sparkled during the evening. Down below our apartment was the large pool which came in handy when the days were hot. The positioning of the house and garden took advantage of the evening breeze so the air-conditioning units in the bedrooms were not needed, but there just in case. That was good to know.
Natalia and Nazareno have thought of everything; spices and all your basics for the kitchen, shampoo and soaps in the THREE (!) bathrooms, detergent for the clothes washer and a little surprise for us to use or take home, a lovely token. We had the entire top apartment to ourselves, while Natalia and Nazareno lived below. This arrangement worked really well as they were there if we needed them and hardly noticeable at other times...probably because they were out tending to their 4 hectares of land and amazing vegetable garden (which we were encouraged to pick from)! As travelers from Australia we appreciated the accessibility to fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables from the garden and we enjoyed cooking them in the enormous kitchen (also with a view to die for) which was fully equipped with dishwasher and all the gadgets you could need. The only thing that we struggled with was how to disperse the rubbish/recyclables/organics, but with a bit of labeling on the bins this will be easily fixed.
We enjoyed Perugia and all the beautiful hill top towns, all which were very easily accessible from Podere Compegno Piccolo as the super strada was only a few minutes away and linked everything together within about 20 minutes. To be in the country side, surrounded by sunflowers, glorious views and peace and quiet, yet able to access towns so readily, was a bonus. There is even a bus at the end of their street which will take you up into Perugia if you don't feel like driving.
We will come back here, there is no doubt about that. Maybe for Umbria Jazz in 2015?! Natalia and Nazareno thank you again for your generous and warm hospitality. Ci vediamo!

“Holiday to remember”

If some holiday destinations leave a longer-lasting impressions with a deep seated desire to come back for more than our stay at the Podere Compegno Piccolo is definitely one of them. Seven of us close friends including spouses chose Podere Piccolo primarily because the detailed description of the property met our requirements along with its location for being only two miles away from the Perugia airport. On arrival at the house we were certainly not disappointed because it is located on top of a small hill and it overlooks beautiful Umbria valley. The house is spacious, comfortable and on the whole adequately and nicely furnished. Apart from inviting outdoor swimming pool and barbecue there is ample space for walk about with fruit trees and vegetables growing. The owners of the property Natalia and Nazareno have been extremely helpful in every way right from the beginning during the booking process as well as during our stay. Not only they provided very helpful information on the choice of local shops, restaurants and places to visit but on occasion volunteered to escort us to hard to reach places. As a group of friends we were unanimous in our opinion that both Natalia and Nazareno are very nice and hospitable people who go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. No doubt we would like to come back in the not so distant future.

We were very lucky to select this villa. It is a beautiful villa, with a most fantastic view, huge grounds and extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owners. The villa has a fully fitted kitchen, and three bathrooms. the grounds have olive orchards, and a big fruit and vegetable garden, and the guests are welcome to help themselves to the fruits and vegetables. Owners will do anything for you. they are available 24/7
it has a lovely swimming pool.
You will be over the moon when you book this villa.
