Guestbook comments from the manager

Country-house stupenda! Struttura immersa nel verde, camere arredate con gusto ineccepibile, atmosfera familiare, due piscine a disposizione: una nel pieno della vegetazione con comodi lettini e possibilità di godersi a piacimento l'ombra o il pieno sole, l'altra, romantica, con una vista favolosa sulla valle spoletina.

La proprietaria Ginevra...inesauribile, preparata, disponibile, direi super! Dopo tutto...buon

sangue non mente!!!

Colazione prelibata con prodotti homemade (su tutti la crostata con marmellata dei loro fichi, pinoli e whisky)

Fatevi consigliare itinerari turistici ed enogastronomici da lei...non rimarrete mai delusi.

Organizza continuamente iniziative per gli ospiti (fantastica e coinvolgente la "pizza class")

Troppo simpatica la sua famigliola di "welsh corgi", furbi e coccoloni, e la sua golosa Bagheera.

Da consigliare e da ritornarci senza ogni dubbio!!! Voto 5/5

Ausgezeichnete Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Eremo delle Fate ist eine wunderschöne Ferienanlage mit drei separaten Apartments, jede mit Zugang zu einer Terrasse oder Freisitz. Es gibt einen großen, parkähnlichen und sehr schönen Garten und zwei Swimmingpools. Man kann im Garten sitzen, grillen (es gibt ein Grillplatz), oder einfach zwischen den Olivenbäumen spazieren gehen. Die Blumen und riesige Töpfe mit Zitruspflanzen sind auch sehr schön. Man merkt überall die Liebe für Details. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig, mit einem wunderschönen Blick über Olivenplantagen, sehr nah an Spoleto (1 km) und vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten in Umbrien. Die Apartments sind geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber und geräumig. Wir hatten das kleinere Apartment (Folletti), aber das war perfekt für zwei Personen. Die Lesenische am Fenster war besonderes gemütlich, und es gab eine gute Auswahl an Büchern (auf Englisch und Italienisch). Ginevra und Ihre Familie haben uns beindruckt mit Ihrer ausgezeichneten Gastfreundschaft und haben uns auch gut beraten bezüglich Essen und Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Umgebung. Wir haben insbesondere Ginevras Hilfsbereitschaft sehr geschätzt (ich hatte mir einen Zeh gebrochen und wir mussten kurz das Krankenhaus besuchen). Sie ist wirklich eine tolle Gastgeberin, energievoll und mit vielen guten Ideen, die den Aufenthalt zu einem besonderen Erlebnis machen (z.B. was wäre mit ein Picknick an den Römische Ruinen von Carsulae? Oder eine spontane Vorführung wie man frittierte Salbeiblätter als Vorspeise vorbereitet). Wir haben sehr unsere informativen Gespräche genossen (Ihr Englisch ist sehr gut). Es gibt eine kleine Locanda vor Ort, wo die Besitzerin nach Vereinbarung für die Gäste kocht. Wir können das nur jedem empfehlen, das Essen war sehr fein und die Atmosphäre draußen am Kamin wirklich etwas Besonderes. Insgesamt, eine ausgezeichnete Ferienwohnung die wir weiter empfehlen können!

Perfect Holiday Destination

  • 5 of 5

I Folletti is perfect for 2 people. It has all the facilities we needed for a two week stay. The location is absolutely beautiful - very peaceful with lovely grounds. There was plenty to do and see within easy reach, but it was also a pleasure to spend lazy days without going anywhere. Ginevra is an excellent host, and I recommend the cooking lessons she offers.

OTTIMALE PER VISITARE L'UMBRIA E PER RIPOSARSI

  • 5 of 5

CON LA FAMIGLIA (4 PERSONE) ABBIAMO DECISO DI TROVARE UNA BUONA SISTEMAZIONE CHE CONCILIASSE LE VISITE AI BORGHI UMBRI CON IL RIPOSO; NON POTEVAMO SCEGLIERE DI MEGLIO.

INOLTRE LA PROPRIETARIA SI E' SPESA PER INTEGRARE LA VACANZA CON IL DIVERTIMENTO PROPONENDOCI VARIE INIZIATIVE (RAFTING NELLA VALLE DEL NERA, CENA IN GIARDINO CON GLI ALTRI OSPITI, SERVIZIO FOTOGRAFICO E SUPPORTO NELL'ORGANIZZARE UNA TRASFERTA NELLA VICINA CITTA' DI ROMA).

LA STRUTTURA E' NUOVA E COMPLETA DI TUTTO CIO' CHE NECESSITA PER STARE BENE.

NESSUN DUBBIO NEL PROPORLA ANCHE AD AMICI E COLLEGHI.

GRAZIE A GINEVRA ED AI SUOI COLLABORATORI.

What a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Eromo Delle Fate for 2 weeks and it was 2 amazing weeks. It is a beautiful, luxurious place for both adults and kids. We enjoyed the two pools, the gardens, the restaurant, the animals and the kind host and her family. We will definitely be back. Umbria is a beautiful, green region with many small hilltop villages that are worth a visit. Bavagna, Montefalco, Trevi and especially Castelluccio were amazing and we can definitely recommend river rafting and cycling in the area.

Wonderful accomodation & location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the 'I folletti' house for two weeks in June '11 and we just had a fantastic relaxing holiday. You wake up with a beautiful view over the valley of the Spoleto area and by car you are close to all the historic sights in Umbria.

The hosting family and especially Ginevra made our stay unforgettable. She showed us all kinds of restaurants on special locations and was always there for information regarding cultural events, historic places and must-have-seen places. If you are planning a visit to Umbria, this property is the ideal place to stay and discover the beauty of Umbria.

We would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Ginevra for a wonderful time.

Out of this world - so good we've gone back twice

  • 5 of 5

Marvelous accommodation which we've stayed in twice (July 2008 and 2011) set on a hill above the beautiful Spoletto. The family are wonderful hosts who take great pleasure in ensuring your stay is nothing short of wonderful. Not only do you have two beautiful pools to choose from, each property also has a private dining / outdoor area to enjoy. I can't recommend it highly enough. The family can also arrange riding lessons and rafting both of which are great fun for the family and make sure you stock up on supplies from the family cellar (wine and other local delicacies are available).

We'll keep on returning to this delightful place

L’Eremo delle Fate is nestled in a very big forest and it’s filled with hundreds of olive. In which there are numerous romantic nooks. You can walk, relax or paint or write also in the olive groove, or swim in a wonderful pool from which there is an astonish view till Assisi, Trevi and Montefalco. Or better you can have a nap during the long summer afternoons. In the park there are also some corner with stone table, wonderful to have an eat out (breakfast, lunch....or a snack!) The Hermitage is a light and charming traditional stone house on a cheerful high position dominating the marvellous Umbrian hills.

Other Activities: horse riding and wine and oil tasting.

Golf: Golf is possible in the very close town of Perugia
