Guestbook comments from the owner

We all greatly enjoyed our stay at Casa Lupo, the Villa exceeded all exception with its beautiful tranquil setting and comfortable well equipped interior. The garden and pool were a delight.



Casa Del Lupo is a beautiful villa which we visited in August 2012 for a two week family holiday. The pool is a perfect size for a family, and was well used by our family when the weather was hot! The owner and family could not have been more helpful when seeking advice, regarding days out, and the welcome pack provided all the info we needed as the area is new to us. The accommodation is very comfortable, and made for a perfect holiday. We\'re saving for our return, and hope to make this a regular holiday!

Stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa del Lupo. The little hamlet is delightful and the views of this quiet valley really stunning. The house had everything we needed and the warm pool was very welcome. We visited Siena, Montepulciano, Castel Rigone, Assisi and Todi and had some great meals out as well as at the house.

Real peace and lovely views

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely house, lots of space and cool inside. The hamlet is so very pretty and we loved the Ave Maria of the bells as they signed off for the evening. The pool was beautifully warm, great views from all angles. We enjoyed sailing on Lake Trasimeno and visiting Cortona and other towns, ate lots of great meals and ice creams!

A house with character and style

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful surroundings and a culturally interesting region. One can feel that the owners invested a lot of time and diligence in preserving the original character of the old house while at the same time providing the convenience of a modern building. The garden is great and the heated pool is wonderful.

Our holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us - my elderly parents, our 7 year-old twin boys, my husband and me. Fabulous views, heated pool was great in September. Village near, lovely cafes and I did all my shopping there. Even managed to get the boys to Assisi and Cortona, great treats for all.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday. 5 adults and 2 children. It was lovely to eat underneath the gazebo outside the back door with views across the valley. The swimming pool was greatly used and the two gazebos provided much needed shade. The sun-worshippers amongst us had comfortable sunbeds to lie on. The nearby towns along the shore of Lake Trasimano were popular trips out. An afternoon spent in Cortona proved a great success. The nearby villages of Mercatale and Lisciano Niccone are handy for a morning coffee. Altogether we would not hesitate to visit again.
