About the property

IT274

Villa due Cipressi has two apartments for rent, one for 6 the other for 2 or 4. A third apartment is occupied by the owners. The Villa is situated in a superb position with magnificent views to the nearby town of Trevi, which can be reached by foot in only ten minutes. Trevi has an unspoilt charm and offers several very good restaurants, a pizzeria, bars and shops. The beautifully restored Villa lies in a semi-fortified estate just outside the city walls. Below the house, reached by an ancient, arched stone staircase, is the secluded garden which has a large salt water swimming pool (12m x 6m). Both apartments have private terraces with wonderful views across the surrounding countryside. The apartments are spacious, light and furnished in a modern style.

Lovely view, large pool, great location

  • 4 of 5

Clean and simple apartment. The balcony has amazing dynamic views - the panorama includes Trevi, the bustling valley below with trains and fast roads and peaceful hills in the distance. Trevi is 10 minutes walk up a steep hill and is a lovely village to walk around with places to eat and a few shops. The pool was perfect and Fiona and Richard were perfect hosts-discreet but also friendly and helpful. We spent some days without moving very far, but also went on trips to villages including Spello, Spoleto, Bevagna, Montefalco and Campello sul Clittuno. All very picturesque. In general we ate and drank very well when we went out….alot of pasta and truffles! The weather was hot and the only drawback was the evening mosquitos.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your positive comments about our apartment, Tosca and for highlighting the truly fantastic views which our guests always say we understate in the description. We do an annual treatment against the mosquitoes but I'm afraid this year, by the end of August, some had returned. We look forward to seeing you back here again as so many of our guests return.

Peace and Tranquility...;-)

  • 4 of 5

What can I say..? Me and my wife spent 2 weeks in the most adorable apartment with a small terrace where we spent many cool breakfasts and (hotter) evening BBQ's.

The property was exactly as expected and as described. Clean, well maintained and ideal for 4 persons....although we were only two.

The location was spectacular, high on the side of the hill going into Trevi with a view to die for, especially when the sun was setting.

The area is good for those who want a mix..? We did a day in then a day out but always coming back to chill out in the large pool. It's a relaxing area, just sightseeing, but at the same time biking (we took our own, but were informed you can rent nearby) and horse riding for us were great, although a bit hot. I'm sure there are other activities just that we didn't look.

Eating in or out was a pleasure and costs way below what we expected. Trevi is small but has 3 good restaurants and we never paid more than EUR. 60 including 'Apero' and a bottle of local wine with the meal. Easy walking distance, if a little hot, going up the hill to the village.

Wine and food in local supermarket was cheap, good white at EUR. 3.70..!

The owners live 'onsite' and were the perfect hosts, nothing was to much problem, either, to sit by the pool chatting, or to the drinks on their terrace, we were made so welcome. Especially by the dog who kindly brings sticks the size of matchsticks for you to throw...:-)

The whole area if nice and green and has plenty of lovely places to see. We were told by travelling 15-20 minutes to other towns and villages, you find some really lovely restaurants but, if your like us, who enjoy a glass (or two), then the 10 - 15 mins walk was enough.

How did we find this place...? I went on the web site and was looking for a place for 2 and in Italy this is quite difficult, so we settled for one for 4. When we saw the pictures, we thought, yes.

I understand there is another apartment, which was below us which sleeps 4 or 6 (check).

Would I go again, definitely....:-) Would I recommend others to go, a big yes, but only on days when I would not be there....

Were there any negatives...? For my wife no, but then again she doesn't get eaten by mosquitos. I wasn't expecting mosquitos so 1st day or so I was bitten but after, with spray its fine, and probably one of the quietest, nicest places we've stayed in.

I could say a lot more but I think it better that you go and find out for yourselves....so enjoy...;-)

Great holiday home in a Umbria

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, well equipped apartment in a beautiful location - private sunny balcony with great views. Trevi is very well placed for touring Umbria. Good sized pool, always clean with plenty of sun bathing space in a well tended garden full of interesting tress and plants.Fiona and Richard are the best of hosts.

Beautiful locations and great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fabulous stay at Villa Due Cipressi. We had the smaller apartment for the four of us (two adult/two children). It was perfect and Fiona and Richard were both extremely friendly and very helpful. We like to cook and the kitchen was well equipped. The bedrooms are simple but nicely decorated and very comfortable. There's a stunning view from the balcony up to Trevi and across the valley – we watched the sun go down each evening and played cards...with a glass of wine. In the morning we sat out and ate breakfast. It was lovely.

Our boys (9 and 12) loved the pool, which is set in a beautiful garden. We were down there practically every day, in the morning and late afternoon. It was very hot when we were there but got used to it.

Some evenings we went up into Trevi and had aperitifs in the old square or ate in one of the restaurants. Great pizza! It's a quiet town and very peaceful. We shopped for groceries down in Borga Trevi, at the bottom of the hill where there's a good supermarket. For bigger ones you can go a little further.

There's lots to do without going very far. We took short trips to Montefalco and Bevagna for ice creams. Assisi is a little more touristy but it doesn't detract from how stunning the city is. We drove to the top and parked really easily just above Basilica of San Francesco which is amazing. We thought parking wasn't expensive but I think you can park further down for less or nothing.

Generally, we took it easy and relaxed but got the train one day from Trevi to Rome. We booked online and just showed the conductor tickets on our iPad which worked out a bit cheaper and was pretty easy. We also booked tickets for the Collusium online which meant we got faster. The train was easy. Rome was hot and tiring but well worth it. We just walked around despite being advised to use the tourist buses. It worked out fine for us but our feet were sore by the end of the day.

For something different, on another day, we booked the factory tour at the Pergugina factory in Perugia. It didn't cost much and takes about an hour. You get to sample their chocolates as you go and we found it very interesting. You have to book.

Overall, our holiday was exactly what we wanted: superb location, amazing weather, great accommodation, good food and very relaxing. We'd highly recommend Villa due Cipressi.

"Fabulous holiday, wonderful apartment"

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at Tosca, a beautiful apartment with a view to die for.

The apartment is comfortable, clean and well equipped in fact we slept like logs! Fiona and Richard were perfect hosts and even had dinner with us in Trevi on our last night. They were there if needed but never intrusive. The gardens are lovely and the pool was fantastic, cleaned daily and surrounded by sun loungers aplenty! Trevi is a 5 minute walk away and is an authentic unspoilt town with a fab piazza for people watching and espresso! We will definitely be back soon.... Thank you Fiona and Richard. The Smiths
