About the Owner

Lupacchione has been lovingly restored from ruin by its English owner, who occupies the main house at various times throughout the year.

They fell in love with Umbria nearly forty years ago and acquired the ruin of Lupacchione around ten years ago. The independent apartment was refurbished to offer guests privacy and a high standard of comfort whilst visiting the property.

We will be on hand to greet you and offer contact and assistance during your stay to help you make the most of this wonderful region.

Beautiful and authentic

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 2 parents and two grown up children of 16 and 22, and we have enjoyed 10 days in July 2014 at this beautiful place. A nice, clean apartment/house in the country with a fully equipped kitchen and close to Marsciano with supermarkets etc, a large pool besides the olive grove and lots of a attractions and old towns within short driving distance. Everything that we needed - besides the good food and wine!

We took a day trip to Norcia for river rafting and went up in the mountains to look at the infinite numbers of flowers of all colors - pure Narnia! This place was recommended by Jane, the landlord, who is by the way a very nice and helpful person. We would very much like to return to Umbria - especially to this house again. From Denmark is is easy to reach this place taking the flight to Rome and go by car for about 1hour 45 minutes to the house. Before departure we received a detailed driving direction - and it was easy to follow. Do try this place and have a nice holiday!

A peaceful stay in a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Lupacchione is located in the beautiful countryside of Umbria in Italy, in the midst of stunning fields of sunflowers and olive groves. The property is up on a little hill with lovely views of the surrounding area and is very private, the next neighbours being several hundreds of metres away. The apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful country house or villa and has direct access to the swimming pool via a lovely little (private) terrace. The main house mainly faces away from the swimming pool / garden area and does not overlook the private terrace of the apartment. The pool is wonderful, bigger than usual, with a deep and a less deep area, ideal for families with children who enjoy pool time and can entertain themselves well in the pool on their own. It may be suitable for families with smaller children too, but this is not for me to judge, as ours are good swimmers/divers. The pool is incredibly well maintained and is cleaned several times a week by the friendly and very helpful gardener. The property is beautiful, all seems new and nicely finished, very clean and exactly as described. The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished and the kitchen is well equipped, including a little gas bbq that can easily be used out on the terrace. In the near-by town of Marsciano there's a market on Monday mornings (not to be missed !), several lovely pizzerias (Oasi Villagio is great for families and even has a little swing / slide play area), a good supermarket and other useful facilities. The near-by town of Todi is well worth a visit, as is Montecastello de Vibio (Orvieto was too busy for us). We received a warm welcome at Lupacchione and had a lovely stay there, in total tranquility, very relaxing and would definitely consider going back. Thank-you.

A WONDERFUL GEM

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of booking Lupacchione, having been recommended it by a friend. Their strong recommendation proved to be entirely justified. The property is located just 5 minutes from Marsciano, along a winding farm road. At the end of that road, you find a terrific 2 bedroom, self-contained apartment attached to the main house. The house is in a wonderful location, with fantastic views of the Umbrian countryside and the neighbouring properties are some distance from the house itself - in other words, it is very private.

The accommodation is well-equipped, spacious and proved perfect for our family of four. The entrance to the apartment doubles as a external dining area, with tables and chairs located under a covered pergola. This was where we spent most of our meal times, using the apartment's gas BBQ to cook a variety of local produce. However, the stand-out feature for all of us was the 15m swimming pool, located just yards from the property. During the hot Italian summer, this provided a great area to be together, as well as cooling off from the heat.

Whilst being out of town, the property is close enough to Marsciano to be able to pop in and out for shopping and the local Monday market is worth a trip. Additionally, the location is pretty central and all the main attractions in Umbria are within very easy reach.

Overall, this is an excellent property and one that we would be happy to return to as well as recommend. It has everything that you would want for a holiday in Umbria and the property is of the highest quality. In short, a wonderful place.

Location

From the Owner

The painstaking restoration produced a farmhouse and very private separate apartment. The surrounding area is beautiful and its proximity to the services of the local town make Lupacchione the ideal base from which to discover the beautiful region of Umbria. The local town is off the beaten tourist trail and allows you to discover the real Italy. The views from the property are truly special, the ideal place to savour a glass of local wine on the patio or simply stargaze in summer.
