About the Owner

Mama Gigi and Don Gordioni, as we are affectionately known, welcome all our guests as if they are friends and enjoy spoiling them. Gilly loves cooking and entertaining and Gordon loves the dishwasher!

The house reflects our love of art and interior design whilst it maintains a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere for guests.

Gilly is very house proud and is always making sure everything is up to her high standards and loves pottering in the garden or giving diving lessons to the smaller guests.

Gordon enjoys his jeep with the roof off in the summer and smaller guests love a trip up the hill on the rough roads.

With 7 grandchildren of our own, DVDs, toys, books, swings and the tree house are very popular.

JUST AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Finding the right words to describe our holiday will not do justice to how absolutely fantastic it really is.

Our accommodation was beautiful with great attention to detail, providing everything that we needed, and more.

From the moment we arrived the welcome we received was so warm, that we knew it was going to be a holiday that would be special.

The apartment for the four of us was just the right size, the modern kitchen had everything we needed, lovely bathroom with a fantastic powerful shower. All linens were provided, even towels for the pool area which meant more space in the suitcases.

The patio and especially the pool area were great for chilling out and the view across the valley took our breath away time and time again.

The main house of Casa Baldelli and the Tobacco Barn are simply stunning. Gilly and Gordon's hard work in renovating the three properties are an absolute credit to them, you cannot be anything but impressed at the style and detail, yet each one has a warmth and ties in beautifully to its surroundings.

We would not hesitate to recommend you stay here, you will not be disappointed, and will most certainly want to return.

Gilly, your hospitality was so generous, and the meals fantastic, thank you so much, and having the gorgeous happy, gentle dogs around made it feel more like home. This was a holiday to remember.

With so many thanks, Sue, Julie, Kev and Bernard

Heaven in Umbria

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed in the apartment and it was magical! Our son is 20 yrs old and has Down syndrome and we were a bit concerned whether he would have enough to keep him interested and occupied during our 6 day stay. We had nothing to worry about! Gilly, the owner was wonderful and took him with her to the vegetable garden where he helped her pick vegetables. She even gave him a ride on the riding lawn mower which he loved! The property is gorgeous with a view from the apartment that makes you feel as if you're looking at a postcard. The pool is lovely and the water temperature was perfect. We had some rainy days but the setting is so calm and peaceful that it didn't matter a bit. Gilly is a wonderful cook and each meal was divine! We met a sweet family from Estonia whom we have kept in contact with. We hope to go back soon and enjoy it all over again!

The Perfect Day

  • 5 of 5

I don't write reviews normally, but I have had to make an exception in this case. My sister decided to get married abroad and has been searching for years to find that special place to hold her special day. When I say she came up trumps, is an understatement.

She told us nothing about the venue, only the co-ordinates for the Sat Nav. and told us to turn up on a certain day. We arrived on Thursday the 12th of June and were greeted with the most stunningly restored building I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.

We were introduced to Gilly, the owner and shown around the place. I am still struggling to close my jaw... Gilly and Gordon have restored this place to perfection, they have kept the Old rustic Italian feel on the outside, whilst the inside is the perfect blend of old and new. Gilly as a person, could not be anymore accommodating, she made sure that we were all comfortable, had plenty to eat, plenty to drink and we wanted for nothing.

Our whole family arrived the following day and in total there were 19 of us. My sister had her big day on Saturday 14th June. The title of this review is "the perfect day" because that is what it was. From start to finish Gilly and her team had the whole day organised. They showed professional attention to every detail whilst still allowing everything to have that personal touch.

I have to say that I was very very sad to leave and am already making plans to return in the not to distant future.

If you are thinking about a relaxing holiday in Italy, a family vacation or indeed a base in Italy to do some sight seeing, Casa Baldelli is the place for you.

I can honestly say that I have never had a better experience on holiday and fear that I will now forever be disappointed with every holiday I book.

Green Umbria was the perfect choice for our holiday home, stunning countryside and amazing landscapes. Although we are at the top of a hill, we are only 10 minutes from the supermarket and a range of restaurants to suit all tastes. There are lots of interesting towns and hilltop villages to explore and in the summer many local festivals to enjoy. There are some great wine areas nearby as well as great cycling and walking for those not wanting to spend all the time next to the pool

Facilities

From the Owner

We are very particular about making sure our guests' needs are fully met and will do our best to fulfill their requests so they leave well relaxed. Children are most welcome and Mama Gigi keeps a great stock of crisps, ice creams and biscuits as well as baking great cakes and buns to spoil them. The house is fully stocked with shopping on arrival so the guests can relax, should they wish a full service of meals this can be arranged with menu discussions beforehand or food prepared for them to cook. The area around the pool is great for barbecues and cocktails, although the six o'clock rule sometimes gets forgotten!

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The property is 500 years old so stays cool inside during the summer months but fans are provided in all bedrooms if the going gets too hot. All the windows have integrated fly screens which enables the house to get the breeze without the bugs. In the winter months the wood burning stoves and the central heating keep the house warm. The villa is located at the top of a hill so there are some lovely walks nearby and also in the grounds through the woods and olive groves. At the furthest point of the garden is our tree house and a flat area as a football pitch, archery area or badminton for the children. The pool is gated for childrens safety, and most of the garden is fenced but there are some steep sections so children need to be kept an eye on. Outside: The villa is nestled in 10 acres of landscaped gardens, chestnut woods, olive and fruit groves and a vegetable garden. The pool is 8 metres by 5 metres and has a shallow end as well as a deeper section however a ridge runs all the way round the inside edge the same as the shallow end. The pool is a salt system which is lovely to swim in. The terraced area around the pool has 10 sunloungers with removeable towelling covers as well as a table and chairs for outside dining. A pergola sits over the dining table so there is plenty of shade should anyone wish to avoid the sun. There is a gas barbecue by the pool as well as another outside the kitchen area of the main house so should there be lots of guests the two can be combined. The stainless steel units by the pool have 2 fridges as well as storage cupboards for towels, glasses, suncreams etc. There are plastic glasses stored here for use by the pool to ensure the safety of the guests.
