marianne kjemtrup purchased this apartment in 2012
The sun shone throughout our stay until the last morning when we were dramatically awoken to a stunning thunder and lightning storm - as if to prepare us for our return to northern climes from this Mediterranean idyll.
This villa has everything it says "on the tin" and more, spacious and comfortable and generously appointed with three private bathrooms. It enjoys a glorious elevated setting with wonderful views across the valley and with plenty seated areas outside from which to enjoy it all, particularly around the fantastic pool. Our family group - five adults - had exclusive use of this which was a huge bonus.
We managed to tear ourselves away from this on occasions too to visit some of the other delights of Umbria and Tuscany, all easily accessible by car.
Thank you to our hosts who were charming and helpful and also very discreet. Excellent value!
We arrived at night with two young children, but were welcomed very warmly by Marianne and Fleming. They are multilingual and spoke / understood English clearly. The villa is very beautiful. There are 3 good size bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin) and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped. All rooms are very well decorated and homely. The accommodation is on the first floor, which significantly reduces the nuisance of insects. The gardens and swimming pool are beautiful, well maintained and have an amazing view across the valley. The photos provided are accurate, but could never capture how beautiful a property and area this is. These are shared with a one bedroom property - but although this was occupied during our stay, we never had to share the pool. The owners live on site - they were welcoming and we saw them when it was necessary, but it was not intrusive. The villa is in a lovely and quite area of countryside, but close to main roads to access all of Umbria. We travelled to all areas between Orvieto, Soleto, Arezzo and Gubbio.
Thank you for an amazing holiday.
We are from Germany and we stayed there for one week with our 2 children and our dog. If you like a quite place this is perfect. Great view from the pool into the landscape. The property was perfectly clean and the furniture as well as all the details are very nice and from top-quality. Mrs and Mr. Kjemtrup are also very nice hosts and always helpful. We absolutely recommend to rent this appartment if you are interested in that area as in our POV this is one of the best houses we ever rent in Italy.
My family and I spent a wonderful week at Marianne and Flemings restored farmhouse in August. Marianne and Fleming were wonderful hosts - very welcoming and informative of the local area. The house was very private and the area very peaceful. The farmhouse has been wonderfully restored and furnished to the highest standard. It was very well equipped - like a home from home - we didn't want for anything. The swimming pool was much enjoyed by the children and us alike. There were lots of areas on the grounds to sit and relax in the sun and in the shade. We enjoyed our stay so much we are returning in April and August 2016. We wish we could keep it our secret!
