About the property

Agriturismo Ca'Mazzetto

A romantic farmhouse with about 130 hectares of land. Very peaceful area, but the position is very central to be able to visit whole Umbria and to make trips also in Toscany, Le Marche and Lazio. Cereal cultivation, olive-trees, meadows for the sheep and horses, woods, old stone houses and the ruins of the 'Castellina' fortress . On our farm we raise Sardinian milking sheep, horses and hens. We have domestic pets and yours are also welcome upon request.

From the hill where the farm is located ( 550m above sea level ) there are breathtaking views over the mountains, hills and valleys. Ideal for trekking. The Franciscan Peace trail from Assisi to Gubbio passes here near.

The farm is organic and controlled by ICEA. We produce extra-virgin olive-oil, cheese from the sheep milk (pecorino, ricotta etc.) and hand-woven textiles. The self-catering apartments for max 4 persons are furnished in wooden 'arte povera' style. It is possible to book meals or who likes can cook with us. (Also for celiac and for vegetarians).

The pictures are totally Different to the current condition.

We just saw the pool area and decided to leave the house immediately (i was travelling alone with two kids at the age of 5&7 years)

Excrement on the bottom of the pool

Trash all over (not just from the day before!)

Totally broken sunlounger

Broken fences

Spines on the floor (my son and I stepped into one)

Plantes withered

The owner just speaks italian so i decided to leave without a word. After recharging my cell phone at a gas station I send him an E-Mail. His answer: the condition was perfect the day before.

Sorry, but there is a General Problem!!! Not a Problem of forgetting to clean in the morning.

Although the offered price was great I Can Not recommend the House!!!!

Owner's Response: We are sorry for the inconvenience even if must be somehow exaggerated as the other guests who stayed during the same period didn't find all these negative conditions and sent actually a positive rewiev. (On the villainumbria website). We all speak very good English in the family. The lady who wrote this review speaks a very good Italian and thats why we used Italian with her. In addition we speak Finnish, some French, German, Swedish.

Sérénité, convivialité & gastronomie

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 merveilleux jours dans cette ferme. Les proprietaries, Pasquale et Marietta, sont d'une rare générosité et vraiment très accueillants.

La ferme degage une belle atmosphere de sérénité. L'endroit est absolument pittoresque. Et aux alentours, il y a de magnifiques villages médiévaux à visiter

Pendant le séjour, ma fille a eu l'occasion de participer à la traite des brebis et à la confection du fromage.

A plusieurs reprises, nous avons diner à la table d'hôte, nous avons été agréablement surprise par la qualité des plats proposes, leur cuisine vaut vraiment le detour et à un prix défaillant toute concurrence.

Nous avons été tellement charmé (par l'endroit, les gens, etc...) que nous avons prévus d'y retourner.

Perfect Umbrian holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Ca’Mazzetto in September 2011. The property is located on a working organic farm conveniently located within easy driving distance of Perugia and Assisi and although a car is essential in getting there, it is well worth the effort of hiring and driving as the farm is located in a beautiful spot in the picturesque Umbrian hillside. The apartment is simply furnished in a lovely arte povera style which suits the farm perfectly. The rooms are self catering, although you can choose to have dinner cooked prepared for you. A lot of the food produced at breakfast and dinner is sourced from the farm itself and the meals were simply divine. Relaxing by the pool overlooking the hills was a perfect way to unwind after hot days spent sightseeing in local areas. Marjatta and Pasquale are such lovely hosts and did everything to make sure that our stay was enjoyable. I can’t fault this accommodation, it is truly the perfect Italian farm stay holiday and I would be more than happy to recommend it to anyone and will definitely be returning to stay again myself.

Hospitality, hiking and great food.

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our stay in this beautifully situated farm.The apartment was spacious and well equipped for doing some of our own meals. A nearby town has a good grocery store so supplies are easily obtained if you are self catering.

Our hosts were most hospitable, and the dinners created for us were delicious, and accommodated my dietary needs as a celiac. What a treat to have home made pasta, stuffed with their own organic sheep cheese, and rolls baked especially for me.

The scenery is wonderful and the farm is very close to a well marked long distance trail which made for great hiking. While you need a car, the distances to Assisi and Gubbio are not far, so there is lots to see and do without spending a lot of time on the road.

Our host even provided laundry service for a very reasonable rate.

We would highly recommend this property.

Phantastisch zum Erholen und Wandern

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr gemütliche Ferienunterkunft in absolut ruhiger, sehr idyllischer Lage. Ideal zum Wandern (Wanderwege in der Nähe) und für Ausflüge in schöne umbrische Städtchen.

Enjoyed every minute.

  • 5 of 5

Almost forgot to leave this review. Wouldn’t be fair to our great hosts Marjatta and Pasquale, but also not to everyone looking for a great home for a beautiful vacation in Umbria. Especially when I think of the fantastic week we had at this great accommodation on a very beautiful and quiet location. Enjoyed every minute, even the one day we had some rain. Indeed a perfect home for visiting the lovely historic towns in Umbria, but also for long beautiful and quiet walks in the Umbrian hills. Thanks to the great hospitality, lovely talks (learned a lot on olives and Italian grapes and wines), delicious breakfasts and dinners, and wonderful views from the pool terrace overlooking the morning dew in the valleys. Yes, you need a car to move around, but it’s a pleasure to ride the quiet minor roads. So far we never stayed at an accommodation twice, but if we would revisit this area of Umbria, we would certainly choose this accommodation again.

Agriturismo Ca'Mazzetto is located on the top of hill in the heart of the historical area of Coccorano of Valfabbrica between Assisi, Gubbio ansd Perugia. We are situated along the Franciscan Peace Trail. The farm is an ideal starting point to visit the lovely medieval towns like Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Spoleto, Spello, Orvieto, Montefalco or Trasimeno Lake or the natural park of Monte Cucco. In couple of hours you can also reach Rome, Florence and Siena or beaches near Ancona. In Valfabbrica town (4 km) there are all the basic services. (shops, bank, pharmacy, post-office). From 20th December 2006 there will be direct Ryanair flights from London to Perugia (San't Egidio),. This small airport is only 20 kms from our farm. You can find also cheap flights to Ancona (!,5 hours by car), Rome (2,5 hours) and Pisa (3,5hours).

Other Activities: shiatsu massage, COOKING LESSONS, cheese making, winetours
