“Scenic villa with all amenities”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We spent 3 weeks at this amazing villa with a party of 11 people which included 6 kids. The pictures are a true representation of the beautifully restored stone house. Each bedroom had its own on-suite bathroom and ample space. The location of the property is close to shopping, fine dining, wine tours and the main city centre of Perugia. The children (and the adults), enjoyed the beautiful pool. The owner of the property (Matteo) was welcoming and was always available for any questions we had and suggestions on cities to visit. We are looking forward to coming back to stay here again!

“Relax by the pool or strike out for the sites in Umbria”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My extended family of 10 loved their stay at this villa. The owner, Matteo, could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. The villa itself is an excellently renovated farmhouse with high quality fittings and is wonderfully cool even in the heat of the day. The pool is great and a reasonable size with plenty of poolside furniture for 7-8 people set into a terrace that's about 30 paces from the villa. The terrace area is the jewel in the crown with a long table for family meals, card games late into the night or for those who enjoy the peace of an early morning, looking out over a rural Umbrian landscape (my personal favourite).

Laze by the pool or strike out for Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi which are not far away but even Sienna is less than 2 hours away. I thoroughly recommend this property. The bicycles are a thoughtful touch but if you're keen to cycle, bring your own or plan to hire in Perugia.

Dear Phil, I am very happy you spent a great time in Umbria and in Casale San Benedetto, Umbria is a beautiful country, not so full of tourists, so it is perfect for resting and exploring. About the house I always try to fix it at the best to allow my guests to live a great experience. Take care and hope to see you and your family again. Matteo

“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

everything was great, the house is great, the pool also. Matteo is a fantastic landlord. He and his family made us feel very welcome. Perugia and other cities are easy to reach. We had a great time and are looking forward to come back soon.

Ciao Roland, it was wonderful to meet you, your family and your friends, we are very happy that you enjoyed very much the house and Umbria. That area of Umbria is fantastic and not too much tourist so you can really relax as you wished. Certain moments spent together were great. Hope to see you all soon. Big hugs.

“Magical paradise”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this house and its owners, The Costarelli family. The pictures do not do it justice. Everything was magical about the house, the terrace, the garden, the pool and above all the panorama. I was fortunate to rent this casale for the whole month. The location for touring Umbria and Tuscany is wonderful. And also, if one just wants to sit by the pool, nothing gets better than that. Over the month I had 15 visitors. Everyone just kept saying "Wow".

The Costarelli's are fabulous people. They responded immediately to every request graciously and went way above the normal host duties by delivering several guests lost luggage and helping track that down. I do hope to go back often and I am in love with this house, this piece of Umbria and the whole Costarelli family.

“Beautifully restored old villa with pool”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We felt very welcomed by the lovely owners when we arrived at this fully renovated old farmhouse in the countryside outside Perugia. The villa is beautiful and has five good size bedrooms each with it's own bathroom with shower. Outside the kitchen there is a patio with a great view also overlooking the pool area. We (eleven people) had a wonderful stay and enjoyed making pizza in the pizza oven, swimming in the pool and visiting nearby sights. We would love to come back!

“Dolce far niente in Umbria!”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in Casale San Benedetto with our two boys aged 12 and 14 for two weeks in July. We have had a wonderful time and were reluctant to leave when our holiday was finished. The house is situated in the middle of beautiful sunflower fields, and has an amazing view on the hills of northern Umbria. You can easily stay at the large infinity pool all day, relaxing on one of the comfortable sunbeds while dreaming away about la dolce vita in Italia...
In the evening it is a treat cooking yourself a simple but lovely meal in the outside stone BBQ and pizza oven, also the kitchen itself is fully equipped and situated directly next to the terrace.
Although the temperature was very high during our stay, you won't have any trouble sleeping at night because of the thick 15th century brick walls who will keep out a lot of the heat when you close the shutters during daytime. The house itself is nicely decorated and has very comfortable beds and bathrooms. It was wonderful waking up every morning in the master bedroom (the one that's on the photo's with the ancient red velvet chair in front of the bed) with really the best view ever!
Every other day we went out to visit one of the lovely medieval cities of Umbria like Gubbio, Spello, Assisi, Spoleto and Perugia (we were in Perugia during the Umbria Jazz Festival, which was really a treat!) - all of them beautiful with a very nice atmosphere and not nearly as crowded with tourists as Firenze, Siena or Rome.
We will definitely remember this holiday with much pleasure and a big smile on our face, not in the least because of the warm welcome we got from Franca and Umberto, the parents of the owner who will go out of their way to make your stay at it's best. Grazie mille e civediamo!
