Customer Reviews

Overall:
Perfect place for many families together. Lots of interesting places to visit in the area within an hour's drive.
Enjoyed Most:
The outdoor area was nice and with lots of shade. Nice swimming pool with plenty of reclining chairs. Each apartment was different but all were very charming.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing - we enjoyed everything (expect the rooster who started his routine at 6 o'clock on the neigbor's farm.)
Surrounding Area:
Very charming countryside, lots of places to visit. We enjoyed the cathedral in Orvieto, the city Siena (market on wednesdays - park at the north end of the village, by the stadium), the fortified village Montereggioni, chocolate and ice cream in Perugia, the awesome "Grotto de Frasassi" (a day trip - lunch in Gubbio, then the caves followed by dinner in Perugia on your way home).
Nearby Events or Locales:
Vernazzano is a not even a village, but had 2 local bars, both within walking distance. Tuoro sul Trasiemo is the closest village (5 min. to drive), but not really within walking distance. Restaurants are everywhere in the countryside - we tried and recommend an outdoor restaurant situated halfway between the property and Cortona, along the local road.
Tips or Restaurants:
The local foods stores are open unril 8 in the evening, and even open for a short while on Sundays, so it was easy to get food and beverages after we arrived. The store is a 5-minute drive from the property. Bigger stores are a 15 minute drive--there's one in Carmucia (near Cortona) that has a good selection of meat, seafood and wine. Buy the map of the Umbria + Marche area (Touring Editore no. 8)
Directions:
None - the directions were perfect.
Check In Out:
Everything went smoothly.

Espen, June

Overall:
Very good to excellent!
Enjoyed Most:
The outside area, the property. The variety in apartments.
Surrounding Area:
The fields, the pool. The Lago Trasimeno area is nice. Short distances to Cortona, Siena, Firenze, Perugia and Assisi.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Yes. Touro sul Trasimeno is close. Also the village Vernazzano.
Tips or Restaurants:
We had a nice evening at the Antica Dogana (Pergo Dogana, Tuoro Sul Trasimeno).
Directions:
Yes, we used a GPS. But nicely signed by the road side.

Anders, June

Overall:
Perfect place for our large group of people, renting the whole place. Nice and friendly owner checking in from time to time. Children (from 6 - 23) and grown-ups were all having a fantastic time!
Enjoyed Most:
Garden/outdoor area and pool area + short distances to many beautiful towns and cultural cites in Toscana and Umbria.
Enjoyed Least:
A bit "poorly" equipped in the kitchens (but being a gourmet-club we might have higher standards than most..), and the bikes for use at the property were not in very good shape.
Surrounding Area:
Good cycling area for those of us that wanted, nice and open landscape and short distance by car to many interesting sites and towns (Cortona, Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, etc).
Nearby Events or Locales:
Tuoro Sul Trasimeno--yes, we could walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
Plenty of good restaurants in all the surrounding towns.
Directions:
Used ordinary map and travel directions given by owner. Worked well.
Check In Out:
Worked fine!

Anne, June

Overall:
We absolutely loved it! It was one of the best holidays we've been on and no one wanted to come home.
Enjoyed Most:
The grounds were beautiful and well kept, and the staff were very friendly and spoke very good English.
Enjoyed Least:
No air conditioning in the apartments; upstairs it was hot.
Surrounding Area:
Beautiful places to visit and the kids loved the animals that were around from the neighbouring farm.
Tips or Restaurants:
The only thing I would say is to take a phrase book because once you're off the resort no one speaks English!
Directions:
We used GPS and a local minibus service for the people who didn't hire a car, they were excellent.
