Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, outdoor and indoor kitchens, swimming pool complex.

A large four bedroom holiday rental villa on the Tuscany Umbria border with big swimming pool (with its own bathroom and outdoor kitchen) and tennis court, this house is for a maximum of eight people. Casa Riozzo is a bigger house and has a more extensive garden than many rental villas that take more people, as a result, one large room downstairs is a games room with a snooker table. Now a holiday house, it was once used as a family home by the owners. The villa accommodation is over two floors and it is not suitable for wheelchairs. There are insect screens on the windows. Internet access is provided, this works best by the pool annex. All bed linen, bath and pool towels are supplied and changed weekly. On the ground floor is a large living room with sitting room area with sofas, TV, DVD player, CD player and a dining area with table and chairs for 8. there is a games room with a pool table. Also downstairs is a double bedroom with queen size bed and one family bathroom not ensuite. There is a shady porch area by the front door with outdoor furniture. Free wifi.

Upstairs are the 3 other bedrooms - a double with en suite shower room and two bedrooms with 2 single beds each.

The swimming pool complex is separately fenced, hedged and gated, with open railings at one end to enjoy the extravagant view across the countryside of Tuscany and Umbria from a raised terrace. At one end is an outdoor covered patio terrace with ample furniture connected to a fully fitted kitchen (including dishwasher, microwave, fridge etc) and a bathroom with jacuzzi, shower and WC. The swimming pool is fourteen metres by five metres (46ft by 17ft) with sunken steps at the shallow end and conventional pool steps at the deep end. There is a summer thermal cover to keep the water warm over night.

The tennis court has a hard surface and is in an adjoining part of the garden, trees provide shade and it is surrounded by high fencing. The surface is not suitable for professional players but will suffice for a knock around.

Around the house are lawned areas, a patio with a table tennis table and large trees providing shade.

Casa Riozzo is rented exclusively by Gorgacce Rentals. Book directly with me for lower prices.

About Emma Cordingley

I am Emma Cordingley, the booking agent for Casa Riozzo. I have lived in the area since 1999 (on the hillside opposite Casa Riozzo and with my husband, Martin, run a small rentals agency that was started by my parents in the 80s. I am originally from the UK where I was a high school teacher. I have 2 teenage daughters. I like walking, gardening, cooking, films and reading. I love everything Italian. Martin has run wine tastings locally for the past 10 years or more, in January 2016 he qualified as an Italian sommelier. he has also written a book of local walks and leads walks in the countryside and some of the local towns.

Why I don't take payment through this website:

I have been renting houses in the area of Italy in which I live for more than 25 years, using my own website at Gorgacce Rentals and many other listing websites such as Trpadvisor, etc. I have been renting on Owners Direct/HomeAway/VRBO/Homelidays/Arbitrel (all now owned by Expedia) since these websites existed. In 2016 they fell under the umbrella of Expedia and there have been big changes since. Although I still pay them handsomely to list all my houses on their website, they now also charge a "service fee" to all guests. For each booking paid for through their website they also take a 3% surcharge from my rental. In order for me to keep prices down I take my own payments; bank transfer, credit card or UK cheque to my UK registered company. Please feel free to phone me if you want to discuss this or any other matter related to the rental.

The owners of Casa Riozzo are a local family who now live in the nearby town of Umbertide, they lived in this house for years bringing up their family. Francesco, the son of the owner lives near to the house and is always helpful.

Why Emma Cordingley chose Umbertide

Casa Riozzo was the family home of the current owners who still live nearby as such it has the feel of a real home. A really good home for a family of all ages especially those who like sport and games. It has great views yet is easily accessible, a village is a few kilometres away and there are plenty of excellent restaurants within a short drive.

As booking agents who live nearby we want all our guests to enjoy their stay at Fonticchio di Sopra. You can book knowing that we are on hand to deal with problems that may arise during your stay, we are always available by phone, text, WhatsApp and by email. We have decided not to use Owners Direct online booking service so that we do not have to pass on their processing fee to our guests. We have also been made aware that Owners Direct can be very slow at responding to problems with payments and return of security deposits.

What makes this villa unique

Tennis court, table tennis, pool table, fully equipped outdoor and indoor kitchens.

Family house with good views

  • 5 of 5

The views from the pool area are as good as it gets. It feels very peaceful but in fact is quite near to restaurants of which they are several good ones, including the local vineyard. The furniture inside has a lived in look but very clean. We didn't use the tennis court as much as we expected to as it was so hot.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa, great pool area and stupendous views. Very rural and you need a car to get about some great restaurants nearby but no taxis. We had a wonderful holiday.

Good value overall

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at Casa Riozzo, the pool area is very well done with nice views. Inside the furnishings are a little dated although comfortable and clean. It doesn't have the charm of an old farmhouse as it was built in the last 50 years. The kitchen inside is pokey but that didn't matter as the one by the pool was all we needed. The tennis court was fine for a knockabout but might not be good enough for more serious players.

Stunning views and more than you expect

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised by Casa Riozzo. The photos of the views in particular don't do them justice but they are stunning. We didn't feel we needed to go anywhere else on our holiday (all through we did force ourselves to do some sight-seeing). We used the tennis court in the early mornings and evenings and the rest of the day was by the pool. We did all our cooking in the outside kitchen. We loved the area and will definitely return.

Great views great house

  • 5 of 5

Casa Riozzo greatly exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do justice to the gorgeous views. The house itself is homely, a little dated but spacious and comfortable. What really impressed us was the pool area with its outdoor kitchen - we hardly used the kitchen inside preferring to cook and eat outside evert day. The location is quiet but it is not far down to the valley road and we ate at some exceptional local restaurants. We would definitely return.
