La Posta di Confine
Reviewed June 29, 2014

The Border Post has been lovingly restored with painstaking effort and the ambience of the place with the gardens is just wonderful. The breakfast is a treat each morning as Roberta is a wonderful cook and takes much care to prepare a varied and interesting morning fare. Needless to say the place is spotless and the decorator touches are homely and welcoming. Roberta will recommend a couple of wonderful restaurants in the back of a nearby town and they are worth trying for the typical produce of the region. The property is within easy reach of most towns and one cannot stay shorter that 3-4 days to enjoy the Umbrian countryside. Should we return to Italy we will visit this property again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet and well placed.

Everything about our experience at La Posta di Confine surpassed our expectations. We were greeted by our gracious host Roberta who showed us to our beautiful suite that had a scenic view overlooking a pastoral valley. The tranquil setting providing opportunity for great repose after our accessible day trips to a number of Umbrian towns. Sleeping conditions were the best we had while in Italy, the quiet, fresh air, comfy bed and pillows were perfect. Roberta's breakfasts were exquisite, no detail left unfinished. Her options of gluten free breads and pastries were most appreciated. Her home made jams, jellies and award winning olive oil were delicious. Roberta and Marco are the perfect hosts, passionate about their home, and sharing it openly with others.

Agriturismo La Posta di Confine is a true haven on earth. We couldn't believe our eyes when we drove up the driveway. It surpassed our expectations and we couldn't believe we had managed to find such a beautiful spot.
The perfect base for day trips to Perugia, Deruta, Montefalco and of course Corciano, the small medievel town nearby. A site for sore eyes!
The scenery is breathtaking as it is located high in the hills with olive trees in every direction. Roberta and Marco do their utmost to make sure every little detail is absolutely perfect.
Even the pool, clean and sparkling has spectacular views and is a great spot to relax after a day sightseeing.
Our room was tastefully decorated. We found a welcome gift on the dresser with a basket of homemade biscuits, water and fruit juice. Great attention was given to the cleanliness of the room. Nothing was left to chance. All this, plus the tranquility and soft and delicate scent of lavender, makes La Posta di Confine simply, unforgettable.
We enjoyed an abundant breakfast on Sunday on the terrace overlooking the immaculate gardens and beautiful valley. Roberta tempted us with homemade jams, bread, tarts, biscuits, yogurt, coffee, tea and delicious cold cuts. Marco also prepared for us his famous (and delicious) scrambled eggs and wild asparagus.
Needless to say that we shall definitely return. We loved absolutely everything about this place, but above the hospitality of Roberta and Marco makes “La Posta di Confine” a true hidden paradise in Umbria.
Grazie!
Marco, Susanna and Ilaria

This place was definitely our favourite! The surrounding countryside is just what you dream about and the house, absolutely charming. Faithfully restored and extremely comfortable and clean, you can feel the love, attention to detail and passion of Roberta and Marco throughout. Roberta's breakfasts were elegant and delicious, the gardens beautiful and Marco's chats about his olive farm, most interesting. Our hosts were charming and very welcoming and we will one day return to this special place.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the rooms in the cottage next to the main residence. An absolute treat!

It has been a pleasure to take a walk with you among the olive trees while having a talk about the history of these natural sculptures and on the way our culture and tradition are tightly connected to them.
What would the landscape surrounding the agritourism be, without the harmony and peace spread by the regular rows of the olive trees?
Not to mention the tasting of bread and olive oil, at times combined with truffles, you have appreciated so much during your breakfast, together with the cookies and the homemade cakes by Roberta.
Despite the distance which separates us, we are sure we'll meet up again, perhaps accepting your invitation to Australia.

I visited 'La Posta di Confine' about a week ago with my parents and my boyfriend - we were all blown away by the beauty of the surroundings, and especially by the beauty of the residence itself. Each room of the house is decorated with exquisite taste, expressed in the utmost attention which both Roberta and Marco pay to the most minute detail. To cite a couple of examples, rusticity and cleanliness are combined to create a paradise of Victorian decor in the bedrooms; what's more my boyfriend and I were delighted to find that we had been greeted with heart-shaped chocolates beside the bed and a collection of homemade biscuits on the counter. Each breakfast Roberta prepares a variety of strictly home-made Umbrian delicacies: freshly squeezed orange juice, biscuits, jams, cakes (sweet and savoury), spreadable chocolate! It is a pleasure for the eye to behold and for the mouth to savour. Not to speak of the wonderful flora and fauna - which will undoubtedly be a source of interest, in particular for children - which inhabit the immediate surroundings. We had the remarkable opportunity to admire wild species of orchids accompanied by Marco, who is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject and about nature in general. In conclusion - a gem not to be missed in any tour of central Italy. I cannot imagine a better place for a relaxing and peaceful stay.

A beautiful spot indeed! Located in the middle of a forest and a wonderful green landscape of Umbria, there is no need to look for another spot. Very well situated, not so far away from Perugia and other small towns in the Umbria region. A perfect location for forgetting of daily routines and getting back to the source.

I arrived unplanned and thought of staying only one night, yet the peaceful and calm ambiance quickly convinced me to stay another night. The rooms are extremely comfortable and breakfast is heavenly. Roberta and Marco are wonderful and made my stay perfect. Their personal attention and caring is remarkable. Their knowledge on the region history is impressive and provided me with valuable tools for getting around the region without the need of a book.

I will definitively go back in my next trip to the region!
