About the Owner

Jenny & James are now retired & spend 3 months a year at their villa. Jenny was a furniture designer who met James,a marble & granite consultant & this is reflected in the decor. After many poor experiences with timeshare holidays they decided to make a holiday home to their own exacting standards.

Amazing Villa we just can't keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday and loved the villa.

The house has been used by 6 adults and 6 children in all and not once have we felt cramped or bored. The swimming pool was huge and most of our time was spent chilling out around there broken up with trips to

What is nice is that the kitchen cupboards are not bare. We loved the policy of just replace something if it runs out - really took away the initial shopping stress!

We have had so much fun sitting out in the evening with a glass of wine and the eating the local food cooked from the BBQ. If you do want to go out the local restaurants serve amazing food and the kids loved real Italian Pizzas.

Thank you for letting us use the Villa!!

So much more.....

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ambiente far exceeded our expectations. We arrived late on the sat evening - welcome pack was delicious and the wine also. Woke up Sunday morning with a swim in the pool and the panoramic views. We made full use of the BBQ and garden in fact we only ate out one evening. Weather was fantastic. Local supermarkets really good, lovely fish and italian meats. A perfect location. The villa is homely, relaxing, comfortable and well equipped with everything you need. Frasassi Caves are a must do, but as expected very busy in high season. A relaxing time was had by all 7 of us - aged8 to 65. Missing the evenings with a glass of vino and the views. The garden has herbs, lemons and figs and of course the lovely large pool. The only downside is that the week went far too fast - we should have booked two!! Highly recommended.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Just spent a wonderful week in this lovely villa! The villa is beautiful, very spacious and well equipped. The grounds are well kept with plenty of space. The views are just amazing! Dip in the pool whilst looking out over the glorious country views and enjoy a barbeque in the evening. We will never forget this lovely, restful holiday of peace and tranquillity. The fire flies twinkling amongst the olive trees and across the fields like Christmas fairy lights is a sight we will treasure and never forget. Wonderful!

Italy : our favourite holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

The drive from the airport to the house was really interesting, winding through the wonderful countryside, seeing where we were going to explore during our stay. When we pulled up outside Casa Ambiente we just knew we were going to love this house. Wow, it was amazing, beautiful inside and out. We loved the dining area, we appreciated the comfy beds. What a wonderful view we had when we threw open our shutters - it took our breathe away. We had a great time picking olives and tasting oil. We had our first taste of fresh truffles - wonderful. All in all we had a super time and would thoroughly recommend Casa Ambiente for a family holiday or a get away with friends and lok forward to visiting again.

Casa Fabuloso

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and comfortable holiday in Casa Ambiente. Jenny and James have converted this old cantina into a luxurious and fabulous holiday home in this beautiful unspoilt region of rural Italy. They have thought of everything, all desires catered for. Don't miss.
