We enjoyed our stay in the lovely appartment in the wonderful Umbrian landscape very much! If you arrive dont follow the sign "country house" in the village as it will lead you like us to another place. We can teally recommend the place. The restaurant just opposite is worth to got to with nice people.
We stayed here for a weekend giving very little notice, but Michele and his family organised everything for us, no problem. Communication with Michele and his family was smooth and courteous.The house was very clean and tidy, with nice touches around such as lavender and a breakfast set out ready on the table with tea and biscuits. The kitchen is equipped with pans, dishes etc., a gas hob, fridge and tabletop electric grill. We cooked a simple meal which we ate by candlelight in the garden, watching the sun set over the hills. We also ate at a restaurant across the road, on the terrace. While Canalicchio itself is tiny, the surrounding area is full of beautiful places to visit such as Perugia and Assisi, as well as some smaller places such as Deruta, Torgiano and Bevagna. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend it for a relaxing stay in Umbria.
Casa molto bella e accogliente in mezzo alle colline umbre. Tutto pulito e in ordine. Michele e sua famiglia sono molto gentili. La colazione era già pronta sul tavolo per il giorno dopo, e la cucina offre la possibilità di fare dei pasti semplici (fornelli, frigo, fornotto elettrico, pentole, piatti ecc.). Si mangia anche bene al ristorante di fronte. La zona è molto tranquilla e bella, con tanti posti da visitare facilmente raggiungibili in macchina. Abbiamo passato un weekend molto piacevole.
We spent a very enjoyable week in the apartment which is in a beautiful situation in a lovely town on the top of a hill. The bedroom and bathroom were very comfortable and clean. We felt that the kitchen lacked some facilities but that did not spoil our experience.
Michele is very quick to respond to enquiries.
We recommend this facility.
Canalicchio Country House is a calm paradise with splendid views, a new house only for us with beautiful garden and typical decoration inside.Clean, well equipped also with tourist information about things worth to see. The family of Michele is super kind, lovely.Thank you for the nice breakfast and wine! The communication with Michele was very efficient, he responded to mails even late at night.
We visited Todi and Perugia, both are charming historic towns, about half an hour drive by car. We swam on Sunday in the pool of the restaurant across the street that serves very tasty food (among others goose and rabbit in their menu). Unfortunately, during the week, they only opened for dinner. The price for the pool in the nearby hotel residence was a bit pricey 15 EUR pp, but they offer internet service and snack bar at the pool.
Overall, the experiences we had at Canallichio are just great.
If you are looking for the best place in Perugio, that should be your choice number 1. We visited Italy many times, that stay at Michele's place has been awesome!!! The villa is in peace and beautiful place, you feel that there is no hustle cities in this world when you stay there. The villa is big and extremely cosy. You can open all the windows and door and enjoy a stunning view, no noise at all. Michele left us a perfect welcoming branch, that was so nice. We enjoyed local vine and fruit in the garden in the evening. The villa is very clean, and the bathroom overlooks the sunflower hill. Our 1 year old baby enjoyed her small swimming pool in the garden. it takes 20-30 minutes to get to the city or Todi, Michele left a lot of information about the area. He is a fantastic host. He was always in touch before and during the stay. The pictures on airbnb are really like the place looks like, and frankly speaking when you are there you feel like at home. Theres is enough place for 4 people to stay and if you have an inflated mattress, even for 6 people.
There is one restaurant just across the street with a perfect seet breakfast and capuchino. and there is another one, just 100 metros with a swimming pool that costs 10 euros per 1 day usage. a great deal actually. the pool is a part of a 4 star hotel, really clean and nice.
So don't miss a chance to enjoy really Italian holidays at Michele's place.
We definitely come here the next year.
