Guestbook comments from the owner
Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Bottale. The house was excellent, having everything we could ask for and the pool is an absolute winner with the incomparable view to Montone. We will definitely recommend you to others and would like to come back ourselves at some point. BJ
Just wanted to say what a lovely time we had at the farmhouse. It is beautifully renovated & in such a stunning location.
We managed a day at the Perugia jazz festival, which was great. We also visited Assisi and Gubbio, but spent most time around the house and Montone - what a lovely town.
We will certainly recommend the house to our friends. VR
I Just wanted to say the hugest of thank yous for your generosity of spirit and wonderful taste which helped us celebrate our wedding at Bottale in an atmosphere of complete calm and beauty.
Everyone was absolutely smitten, with your home, the pool, and Montone. It was the home from home wedding we dared to wish for. Thank you. CD
