Heartwarming experience! Italy has always been about the food for me, but thanks to Enrico, my time in Umbria was so much about its wonderful people. The house is dreamy and beautiful, just like the photos, and since I was the only guest at the time, Enrico offered me the studio behind with my own private entrance, kitchenette and large bathroom. It might be worthwhile to pick that when you book anyway, if you want to have your own space. The main house is very artistic, with the music playing and the organic garden in front, and I could hang out there and use the fast Wifi.
I was a little skeptical about staying on the countryside without a car, but Enrico made it very easy. He picked me up at the train station (even after I missed my connection in Firenze and arrived late), and lent me his brother's son's bicycle for my stay. I cycled 15 km to Todi - a beautiful ride with 5 km uphill - and absolutely loved the town, though it was nice to ditch the tourists and come home in the evening! He invited me out with his friends and daughter many times, and I got an unexpectedly intimate peak into life in Umbria, for which I feel incredibly lucky and grateful.
Nearby the house, there's a coffee shop and small restos that you can cycle to for yummy paninis, as well as a supermarket if you prefer to cook. We didn't eat much at home and the stone oven was never fired up, but that's fine because his friends fired up one in their old traditional home for a lazy Sunday lunch. The breakfasts were typically Italian, with strawberry cakes, fresh fruits, homemade jams and incredible coffee.
I can't think of a better way to explore Umbria and would love to go back someday. Thank you Enrico for sharing a slice of your life with me and welcoming me so warmheartedly!
Enrico and Junko are the most welcoming, helpful, caring hosts one could wish for on a quiet retreat. Incredibly kind and generous people and a beautiful home in which they make guests feel so welcome. My stay in his beautiful part of the world I will never forget.. Incredible food, wine and company. In the green heart of Italy a great artistic and cultural area. I could not thank Enrico and Junko enough for making my week - it was pure bliss. Thanks !
Erico & Junko were extremely hospital hosts. The place was relatively easy to find with Google Maps and the coordinates provided by Enrico. The house was cosy and warm, and the room was pleasantly spacious. We were offered a home cooked BBQ dinner with organic wine and had a great time dining and chatting into the night. Junko made breakfast every morning, taking very good care of us and providing tips on where we might visit in Umbria. It was truly a home away from home. To say that we enjoyed our stay would be a tremendous understatement. We felt sad having to say goodbye and look forward to returning one day.
Ciao Enrico & Junko!
Enrico was very flexible and accommodating since our group kept growing and changing. He and Junko were wonderful hosts and cooked us a delicious dinner. We loved the location of the house for visiting local towns such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Bagnoreggio, Todi. They recommended Pane & Vino restaurant in Todi for dinner and the antipasto was fabulous. For this stay, we used their apartment and the main house. The apartment is perfect for airbnb rental for a couple or people with two children. The main house had 2 bedrooms and a big couch that turned into a queen size (better than normal pull-out). They were great hosts.
Enrico è una persona splendida e tutto quello che lo circonda, la casa, la natura, le sue passioni e gli amici, sono esattamente come lui.
La casa è immersa nella natura ma allo stesso tempo non lontana dall'autostrada: è stato un ottimo punto di partenza per visitare l'Umbria.. ma mi ha anche permesso di rilassarmi e godere di un po' di pace e tranquillità. La stanza è semplice, accogliente e comoda, non manca davvero nulla.
Mi sono sentito accolto in casa di Enrico, una qualità rara.. a presto!
We stayed one night with Enrico on our way from Rome to Le Marche. Enrico was a great host and cooked us a delicious dinner using vegetables from his garden. The room was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay!
Il Signor Enrico sembra un uomo
Simpatico e l'alloggio e' pulito ed in mezzo alla natura, ma ahimè ciò che figura sul profilo non e' proprio la realtà. E' un alloggio pulito molto spartano, da consigliare a colori che non desiderano confort e vogliono spendere poco.
Signora Paola la camera dove lei ha alloggiato è stata migliorata rispetto a quello che ha visto in foto, aggiornerò il profilo. Non capisco cosa intende per comfort e se voleva poteva spendere di più e avere quei comforts , che comunque non sono pubblicizzati nel profilo. Non se la deve prendere se lo ho ricordato l'orario del check out che invece è pubblicato nel profilo.Ha potuto comunque godere di piccoli extra come il caffè appena arrivata, saponi che non sono previsti nel profilo, acqua minerale che non sono tenuto a darle, una colazione a mezzogiorno quando sarei tenuto a non dargliela dopo le dieci. La mia casa è spartana, un pò come me che "sembro simpatico" ma ho qualche asperità. Gli ospiti precedenti mi trovano simpatico e continuiamo a comunicare a distanza di mesi. Basta sapere quello che si vuole ....e leggere attentamente le istruzioni!!!!
