About the property

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.

Beautiful property in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from two fabulous weeks in Trevi. The apartment was well kitted out. Our apartment, the top floor of he house, must have one of the best views in the Trevi. The pool area and gardens are stunning. Trevi is a great location for visiting other places of interest with a good rail service to Rome and Florence.Trevi has several restaurants and bars which are ten minutes walk from the house. The property owners, Fiona and Richard, are extremely welcoming, friendly and can provide local information. All in all we had a fantastic stay and I am sure we will return!

Pretty area and lovely views- apartment could have been better

  • 3 of 5

Trevi is a beautiful little village with wonderful views off the hillside, its lovely to walk around but there is not a huge amount to do, especially for our 2 year old son. Thankfully there is a park very close to the apartment which he loved.

There are good towns to visit such as Spoleto and Perugia although we found Perugia didn't have a lot on offer but perhaps as we were out of tourist season that may be why. We enjoyed visiting the Marmore waterfalls which we would reccomend.

The apartment has the potential to be great- the owners (and Adrian, Fiona's brother) are very friendly and their dog Lapo is a gorgeous and friendly dog who our son really loved playing and thowing the ball for. (He still talks about Lapo lots some weeks later!)

The swimming pool area is really nice but unfortunately it was too cold to have an enjoyable swim when we were visiting (end of September).

Our only main complaint is that the apartment, although looks very pretty, is very well used and in need of a bit of love and money spent on things such as the shower (we had to do a diy job to stop it falling down on our heads when showering), there was no plug for the small bath's plug hole so our little boy couldn't bath all week (we held him under the shower with us), the bed is not particularly comfortable and the kitchen and utensils, pots and pans are all very well used.

All in all, it was a pleasant stay with the potential to be much better- we were left feeling slightly disappointed in the quality of the apartment after the price we had paid to stay (even out of season).

Hopefully some constructive criticism and we were grateful for our stay in the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. What a shame you did not mention that the plug was missing in the bathtub and shower head was slipping. Adrian was present for the entire duration of your stay and could have resolved both problems immediately. Unfortunately you did not mention it to me on my return either, when I asked you if you had everything in the apartment you needed. Our prices, we believe, are very reasonable and competitive. Heating is an additional cost, should it be needed, as we state in our information sheet! Here are the comments received from guests who stayed in the apartment after you:- "Thank you sooooo much for your hospitality and use of your beautiful apartment...you both made us feel so welcome and gave us the most beautiful memories, Best, Kevin and Lynne"

Amazing villa, beautiful location and lovely hosts.

  • 5 of 5

After arriving from a long journey our hosts quickly settled us in and gave us detailed directions to the best local food. Any questions or issues we had, they answered. The villa had a spectacular view of the valley and was spotless. Relaxing pool area set in the spacious and quiet garden overlooking the olive fields. The location is walking distance of some amazing restaurants and driving distance from several towns with high quality Italian food. Lovely dog.

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.

Numana/Sirolo
Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Closest beaches are on the Adriatic coast, approximately an hour and a half drive away. We suggest Numana or Sirolo as the cleanest and prettiest.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Perugia (30 mins by car).

Ancona (Ryanair) 1 hour 45 mins by car / train.

Rome Ciampino (Ryanair EasyJet) 2 hours by car.

Rome Fiumicino (Many airlines) 2 and a half hours.

Trevi is on the main Rome -Ancona line and trains are regular and very economical; about an hour and a half to Rome, two and a half hours to Florence.

Car hire is recommended but not essential.

Distances:

Trevi is 5 minutes away by car (10 minutes on foot), Montefalco, Foligno and Spoleto 15 mins by car.

Assisi and Spoleto are 20 mins drive away. Perugia 45 mins, Todi and Gubbio 1 hour and Orvieto 90 mins; Rome is 2 hours and Florence 2 and a half hours away by car.

Further Details:

There are tennis and riding facilities close by and in the valley below is a twenty mile cycle route (from Spoleto to Assisi). There are all amenities in Trevi, however there is a large shopping centre ten minutes drive away. The closest large town is Foligno (11kms away) with great clothes shops. Local restaurants serve exceptionally good traditional fare, using the outstanding olive oil, truffles, celery and wild boar from the area. The wines from Montefalco are highly prized and the famous Sagrantino is unique to the region. There are fabulous walks in the mountains behind Trevi and through the neighbouring Valnerina, where rafting is also on offer.
