Guestbook comments from the manager

We rented the Gnomi appartment two weeks in June 2013. Very nice and large terrace, garden and swimming pools. Very near to Spoleto (a nice and old city with many good restaurants and a large supermarket). Ideal to relax. The manager, Ginevra, is friendly, gives good tips and organizes some activities. We enjoyed a good really Italian meal in a restaurant at the top of a hill and a pizza party in the garden with the other guests. We felt really free to participate in an activity or to reject. On our request Ginevra prepared a truffle dinner for us. Fabulous. Vote 5/5

Beautiful property with an amazing host

  • 5 of 5

Modern amenities with old world charm. The host was very welcoming and an amazing cook! Great spot in the country just a few minute drive away from Spoleto. Staying here was the highlight of our trip.

An Umbrian Delight

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay and it is as excellent as ever. The location is idyllic, the accommodation is superb, and Ginevra is a wonderful host. Ginevra's home cooking was just fabulous - sitting by the fire, eating wild asparagus and drinking Umbrian wine says it all.

Everything about Eremo delle Fate was perfect. It has two beautiful pools. One a large pool, great for swimming lengths and for larger groups/families and the second a smaller one up on a hill with fabulous views down towards Spoleto.

The property is beautifully planted, full of lavender, lemon and orange trees, acer trees and roses, an abundance of scented roses.

The house we rented was perfect, very clean and nicely furnished, very comfortable. Outdoor seating areas beautiful too. There has been no scrimping on furnishings, lamps, pictures, outdoor seating...it all feels very generous and a loved and cared for place.

The property is only 3 minutes by car from Spoleto which is an authentic living town with beautiful streets, shops and restaurants. Large, very good supermarket on the outskirts. Many interesting villages, towns and activities within a nearby radius of the property.

Highly recommend the river rafting 30 minutes away and also the 'Pizza Party' held by the owner during our stay for all the guests.

A charming, very well maintained and loved property.

We have been there twice now and we will return!

A beautiful oasis just up the hill from the cute town of Spoleto, my family of four with two children(8&11) were treated with great warmth and affection.

Our second trip to Spoleto- we love Umbria and there's so much to see and do here, with less crowds than Toscana, we had to return. Eremo delle Fate is a gated paradise among trees, flowers and an olive orchard featureing 3 rentals, 2 pools, animals(horses, chickens, duck, bunny, cats, a turtle and delightful corgies, a private locanda for food and, best of all, the attentive care of the owners.

Ginevra, a multitalented intelligent young woman, offers wonderful care. She will assist you in making your stay in Umbria special. She cooks, she works her property, entertains her guests, advises, consoles and will give an honest opinion about anything.

Her sister offers riding lessons, which our children took all week, at a reasonable price in beautiful location nearby. The Marini family are wonderful people and take great pride and care in what they do.

The Gnomi house sits below the larger Fate house and has the best and largest veranda. Tastefully decorated and comfortable with good beds and nice bathrooms, we often enjoyed eating outdoors. There's a small kitchen with oven/stove/dishwasher and fridge. Large windows with screens, a fireplace, tv(Ginevra can provide a DVD player if desired).

Below the Gnomi house, sits the smaller rental. The views are terrific. Walk down below to see all the animals, outdoor pizza oven, and the largest of the pools. The other pool is slightly up the hill. We had great weather, and they opened one of the pools early for our kids to swim. There's also a small exercise house.

Ginevra provides prearranged meals at her Locanda which are super! She will help arrange other activities or leave you alone if that's what you desire. I say: do whatever she recommends!

Visit some hillside towns, drive into the Valnerina, check out some mummies(Kids love it), walk through Spoleto with gelato, go horseback riding or rafting, or just, simply, enjoy Eremo delle Fate. Very unique, one of a kind experience.

We spent two weeks at this wonderful location. Elegant furnishing, VERY good beds, new bathroom and a wonderful garden. Ginevra, the owner of Eremo delle Fate, is a self confident and very warm person and she is the queen of cooking. She has the makings of a star-winning-chef and we enjoyed her dinners in the outside restaurant (unfortunately we missed the warm italian nights this year). Spoleto is a wonderful small town, you can go on a hike through the forest and olive groves and reach the cathedral after one hour. Excellent location for exploring Umbria.
