What a wonderful place for a family vacation! We so enjoyed exploring the hill towns during the morning and returning for an afternoon swim. Louie and Deborah are wonderful hosts and we appreciated so much the home-baked surprises. The pool was a perfect place for us to relax with our kids, and the spectacular sunsets and surprises were just another bonus. The Witners
What a wonderful week we have had. The hospitality of Louie and Deborah exceeded all expectations. We enjoyed all their recommendations and enjoyed exploring the area. The kids loved the pool.

Year property purchased: 2008
Why this location?
We lived in Italy for 8 years, and returned to North America in 1995. Although we traveled back to Italy yearly, we really missed living there on a more permanent basis. When my husband retired early we decided it was time to start looking for some property and we were thrilled to find the property in Umbria where we have both a personal home and a loely rental property with enough land around us to garden, grow olive trees and grapes.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Il Casale di Mele is in a perfect position set along a road with gorgeous views of Umbrian hills that look up at Collazzone. Depsite the rural feel and solitude, the main road to Umbrian's E45 highway is just a few minutes away.
