Below are some past guest comments taken from our house comments book.

We’ve had a wonderfully relaxing 2 weeks here enjoying the warm weather, the fabulous views and the fantastic facilities. Don’t think we’ve ever settled into a holiday house so quickly – a proper home from home. The gardens are lovely, the pool has been maintained to such a high standard and the games and equipment have kept us all busy. To finish it all off Jane came along and prepared us a fantastic meal on our last night. Thanks to all.

This house is the most comfortable holiday home we’ve ever stayed in. The children were blown away by the selection of toys, table football, table tennis table, and above all the pool.

Jane’s meal was an absolute feast it was such a pleasure to come home to a meal ready and waiting in the fridge. The views are stunning and being able to sit so comfortably under the veranda watching the children in the pool was so relaxing.

A stunning Villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This has got to be the most amazing holiday experience ever. This Villa has everything I could wish for in a dream holiday and more – from the moment I arrived to the calm and peace and saw the breath-taking views over the Umbrian countryside I was transported to a different world. The delicious welcome pack and complimentary meal was a thoughtful gesture from the owners and straight away I felt that they really cared that I had a great time: I felt my holiday had started from the moment I arrived! I loved the shady terrace and enjoying a cool glass of Italian wine while watching the sun set, rounding off a glorious day of swimming in the beautiful pool, or sightseeing in the so many places of interest nearby. The location and villa offers something for everyone and the owners’ personal touches such as toys, games and CDs and pool toys (I loved the pink flamingo) made it really special for me. The rooms and bathrooms are tastefully decorated and the comfort and cleanliness is of a very high standard. I would recommend it as a perfect Italian escape. I can’t wait to go again.

Perfect Location for Relaxation & Fun for All Ages

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful and peaceful location of this farmhouse in the Italian countryside is ideal for those seeking a relaxed holiday on site with all the amenities, as well as its proximity to the local towns of Umbertide and Gubbio, where we recommend the Taverna del Lupe. We made memorable visits to the beautiful Lake Trasimeno and to historic Perugia as well as Cortona. The farmhouse's great location means that during future visits we also plan to see Florence, Sienna and Assisi. The farmhouse is very comfortable & well-equipped for all ages. Our three generation family group included children of 2, 11 and 14, so the pool, sheltered terrace and enormous range of games and toys suited everyone. We were impressed with the welcome pack and with the beautifully prepared complimentary meal. We all agreed that we would return year after year as we had finally found a treasure of a holiday rental.

The property and wonderful views were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The property and wonderful views were beyond our expectations! Such a peaceful setting! Everything a family could want to escape London city life to, the Umbrian countryside. Upon arrival a welcome basket, and later in the week a scrumptious complementary meal! The farmhouse, cottage and pool were maintained to a very high standard. Everything you needed was there! Enough toys to keep the children occupied for weeks (table tennis, foosball, bowls, pool inflatables, DVD’s and the list goes on), and of course the wonderful swimming pool. We had many resting days at the property, but also visited Umbertide Waterpark (great fun!). Gubbio’s famous church, and market, and Perugia (Baci factory, great success for the children). We’ve had a few bad rental experiences in the past, and cannot express how these owners go above and beyond, to make your holiday start as soon as your arrive! (Worth the time for me to write a review). We’ll book again!

Definitely returning

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Colbiancale and immediately fell in love with it, it was lovely better than we imagined. The children 8 and 13 headed straight for the pool.

The layout of the house is very spacious cool and airy equipped with everything we could want as a family the children loved all the toys and games.

Jane brought us the complementary meal which was fantastic and inspired me to make some of the dishes here at home.

We were just so relaxed enjoying the views from the comfortable terrace. Yes we are definitely returning and doing more exploring of the area.
