About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
"This was the best villa I've stayed in ever. We had a big family group so having a separate bathroom for each room made life a lot easier. It was clean and spacious so that everyone can enjoy themselves and have space to themselves if they wanted to."
"Nice location, lovely views, great facilities at the house."
"Just to say how much we enjoyed Casa Lago d'Estate. The house and gardens are beautiful,very well equipped and extensive. Everything was pretty much exemplary from the welcome to the cleanliness and upkeep. We had not realised just from the website how big and lovely the property was."

Lovely spacious house
Lovely spacious and well equipped house with beautiful gardens and lots of shady spots for relaxation as well as by the pool. The garden also had an orchard with a good selection of fruit trees and bushes which we were encouraged to pick - there were apples, plums, pears and blackberries whilst we were there. The owner was very helpful throughout as was the local property manager who was available if we needed help with anything. The house is in a peaceful rural area which we enjoyed exploring. It's close to a lake (with boat hire) and within walking distance of a couple of restaurants by the lake so eating out didn't always mean a drive.

Casa Lago is the perfect Italian villa for a group of stressed people to relax. a very easy villa to share with friends, family and our weimaraner as everyone can share the lounges and eating areas but still have their own personal space as the villa is well laid out with 5 en-suite bathrooms and other separate toilets. We spent most of our time outside- obviously as the weather was everything that we could wish for- sunshine for a month! The gardens offer several separate areas for eating, we were invited to pick from the fruit bushes and eat the amazing figs. The pool area is tranquil, with plenty of surrounding sunbed space and ideal for languishing & playing. Surrounding area is beautiful with the lake 5mins walk below, offering boats and a great restaurant. We met so many friendly people; locally through the restaurants and markets but also the villa itself is well supported by estate managers, gardener and owners that really did go the extra kilometre for us all. This is our second visit to this villa and we can only highly recommend it to you.
This is a gorgeous property set on a remote hillside with lovely views of the San Ruffino lake and the Sibillini mountains in the distance.
The facilities are excellent with spacious, elegantly restored rooms, a tranquil terraced garden and a swimming pool ; all clean and well maintained.
There are two places to eat out within walking distance of the villa , a very good value pizza house and a more up market, though still reasonably priced restaurant.
There are plenty of quaint hill top towns and the lake Fiastra 50 minutes away is well worth the trip.
I have been twice to this lovely villa and have no hesitation in giving it the highest possible recommendation.
