Fantastic Villa in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Villa Leccio was exactly as pictured if not better. Spacious, tastefully decorated, very clean and with a well stocked kitchen. The grounds are beautifully maintained with a huge garden. The road to the house is a bit of a challenge as mentioned in the description so a sturdy car is recommended.

We loved the area. We spent some time in Orvieto which isn't far away where there are plenty of good restaurants and things to do/see. We also visited the vineyard Decugnagno dei Barbi and spent a day at Bolsena Lake. The rest of the time was spent chilling and sunbathing by the pool. The climate was perfect with hot sunny days and cool comfortable evenings.

Roberto was the perfect host, always available to help and give us tips when needed. He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable :)

We would definitely recommend this villa to others.

A lovely house to spend a nice holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Villa Il Leccio was excellent.

We rented the house for one week in August 2015 with two families (4 adults & 5children) and we really enjoyed our stay. Two weeks would even be better to explore the nice region in Umbria.

Roberto was waiting for us when we arrived. We got a warm welcome & tour in the house and garden. There was also a nice bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge!

In the house everything is foreseen. Also things we did not expect like night lights for the children, washing products for dish washer & washing machine, coffee filters, salt, pepper, herbs etc.

The patio was really lovely to enjoy our breakfast & prepared meals when we did not go for dinner in the restaurants recommended by Roberto.

The swimming pool was a nice place to cool down, very clean and big enough.

The only negative point I could mention is the not so good working Wi-Fi during our stay but to be honest we did not miss it. It was pure quality time with the family in a really beautiful neighborhood.

I can only recommend a stay at Villa Il Leccio and don’t let the remarks about the road scare you to book a stay in the house. It is certainly no problem to get there with a normal car although it takes some minutes to get to the house via the unpaved road.

After our stay Mr. Roberto was even so kind to send back a forgotten hoodie from the kids back to Belgium what we really appreciated!

A beautiful villa and gardens abounding with flowers and fruit. Wonderful swimming pool and surrounding area. Roberto could not have been more helpful. Getting to the villa was a little dramatic as the sat/nav took us down a very bad and closed road, follow his instructions and not the navigator!!! Definitely recommend

lovely property in the peaceful countryside

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed as guests of a friend and thoroughly enjoyed the house. It was a bit 'tucked away' and as was mentioned previously, the road to and from the house was a challenge with ruts and grade. But we managed due to an excellent driver. ;) The house itself was gorgeous with lovely grounds, including a separate out building with grape laden vines to sit under with an espresso or glass of wine. The pool was lovely and inviting although a bit too cool for my taste. But I can imagine it in the summer filled with guests. The inside of the house was perfect for our needs with a dining table just inside the front door which was always busy with guests checking our iPads with the wifi included with the property which worked nicely. From there you could walk straight ahead into the huge kitchen with everything needed to make meals. Full sized refridgerator, 6 burner gas range top, small but adequate oven, toaster and microwave, American coffee maker, a double sink (shallow but functional), dishwasher and even an indoor BBQ thing-y which we did not use. There is also a grill outside and eating area out of doors under a nice cover. I even found a food processor and there were other small appliances. Enough cookware and dinner ware for our needs also. There were 5 of us.

The living room was two couches, a few scattered side chairs, coffee table and another long wood dining table with bench and chairs. Also a wood burning fireplace which we used in the evenings to take the chill off. there was also a small bathroom with shower and washing machine just off the kitchen.

Up the spiral stairs (or via an outside stairway to the master bedroom) were the four bedrooms and two bathrooms. All were very nicely decorated and quite comfortable (I speak for myself). Floors are brick so they were cool but gorgeous. My sister and I arrived after other travelers had been staying there and from what I could see, the house was very clean and well maintained.

Other than the distance from Orvieto itself and having to pick up drinking water I thought the house was the perfect place to stay for a quiet home base from visiting the nearby towns and sights all day.

As good as it looks

  • 4 of 5

Il Leccio is as good as it looks. I spent a wonderful 3 weeks in this secluded villa. The kitchen is perfect for would be chefs. Il Leccio is perfectly located for day trips in a car or by train. The owner was accommodating without being obtrusive. The gravel road is a challenge, but you don't need a 4 wheel drive. You do need some ground clearance. I traded the Alfa for a Fiat 500 L, and it was perfect. Would recommend the villa without reservation.

Beautiful family hideaway in the Umbrian hills

  • 5 of 5

Il Leccio is one gem of a villa tucked away amongst the vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees of Umbria. It is ideal for a family looking to get away from it all with huge, beautifully maintained gardens, a lovely big swimming pool and shaded al fresco dining. The villa is very tastefully decorated with historic artifacts and features, maintaining it's rustic charm. Roberto, the owner was lovely - extremely hospitable and helpful. Although the villa is off the beaten track, there are quaint little villages to visit nearby with historic castles. Orvietto is only about 20 minutes drive away so very convenient to buy all your groceries! We ventured out to an amazing winery around 40 minutes drive called Decugnano Dei Barbi which was very memorable with beautiful wines. Definitely worth the trip - even my 6 year old enjoyed it! We are not the type of people that visit the same place twice but we would definitely return to Il Leccio again. In terms of value for money, this place wins my vote! It was a holiday to remember!
