The sitting room has sofas and easy chairs, TV and DVD and a large stone fireplace, it leads through to a dining room for 8 people and to the delightful country kitchen with excellent preparation and cooking areas, kitchen table and chairs and with French windows which open onto a lovely wide patio with its own outdoor dining area and sun loungers where there is a barbecue. The patio with its vine covered pergola looks over the well-maintained herb garden and steps lead down to the pool area with is paved all round and provided with large umbrellas and sun loungers. The views are wonderful. One double bedroom is downstairs with a bathroom adjacent.

About Emma Cordingley

My family have been booking agents for many properties in the Tuscany and Umbria area for at least the past 25 years. My name is Emma and I live with my husband Martin and two daughters, our dog and our cat in the Niccone Valley, 30 minutes drive from La Rondinaia. We have a small rentals agency that was started by my parents in the 80s. We only have a small number of properties, we don't take on everything that is offered to us, all our properties have something that makes them special. We know all the houses we rent very well and the owners are all known to us personally.

Why Emma Cordingley chose Apecchio

If you want complete undisturbed peace and tranquility then this house is for you. The views of the countryside from this house are incredible. The house is spacious, well furnished and immaculately maintained.

What makes this villa unique

As booking agents who live nearby we want all our guests to enjoy their stay at La Rondinaia. You can book knowing that we are on hand to deal with problems that may arise during your stay, we are always available by phone, text, WhatsApp and by email.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved La Rondinaia. It is such a special and beautiful house and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The quiet and solitude is incredible there.

We absolutely loved the house. It was in such a beautiful surrounding. Loved the pool area especially. Thank you so much for the lovely welcome gifts, we really enjoyed those. We shall certainly recommend your website, we were so happy with your service.

We will highly recommend Gorgacce Rentals, La Rondinaia, and La Laconda del Borgo! We had a wonderful time at the villa, none of us wanted it to end. La Rondinaia was gorgeous! We also enjoyed Pietralunga and La Lacondo del Borgo restaurant.

Stunningly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I have taken some time to write this review mainly because I don't really want other people to find out about it! It is quite simply the best holiday we have had in Italy. The property is beautiful - the countryside is stunning. The owners are helpful and the local town is charming. I would say that the property is quite isolated and this may not appeal to everybody; the drive to it takes some time from the nearest motorway. However if you are looking for a restful holiday with peace and quiet then this is the house for you. We took our bikes with us but found some of the local hills a bit challenging; we'll stick to walking next time!

Not for people who are looking for excitement or glitz but the perfect restful family holiday!

A great away from it all house. Stunning scenery.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much and are very sad to have left. By far the best place we have stayed at in Umbria. We will miss it.

Compliments to the owners for keeping a safe and clean place for us to stay at.

Quiet perfection

  • 5 of 5

This very beautiful house really takes one away from everyday life and its cares, it is so quiet and restful. The interior is charming, unfussy and with enough room for 6 people to easily live comfortably. All very well thought out and the country views are just delightful. Spartaco was very helpful when a summer storm tripped the electricity.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to send a review, it is very kind of you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. i will pass thanks on to Spartaco.

Beautiful house and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at La Rondinaia was lovely. The views were spectacular, particularly by the pool. All of the facilities were in top condition. It was very peaceful staying here; there were no noisy disturbances, so we could fully enjoy the villa to ourselves. It was a perfectly relaxed holiday and it was a delight to stay here!

A lovely, relaxing stay in a quiet idyll.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week at La Rondinaia. The house is beautiful, large and spacious and very comfortable, the kitchen is amazingly well equipped and the gardens and pool are lovely. The caretakers left a welcome basket of goodies which was a really nice touch. But what sets this property apart is the setting. The views from the house and the garden are amazing and the photos don't really do the place justice. You really feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, you can't see any other houses or hear any noise, it's lovely. It does mean you are quite isolated, the nearest village is a 25 minute drive but there is everything you need there and if you don't plan on doing much then this place is a great place to relax and do nothing. I would certainly recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful holiday in a lovely house in the Italian hills.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our holiday here. The villa, pool and gardens are beautiful with stunning views in every direction. There are no close neighbours so our kids enjoyed making plenty of noise in the pool! The rooms are very spacious and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We were also very grateful for the welcome pack as we arrived on a national holiday.

Pietralunga is a short drive and has a decent supermarket, a bakery and some nice restaurants.

I can highly recommend and hope to return one day.
