Our stay at the farm was one of the highlights of our Italian adventure! The setting was sublime, and our hosts made a superb feast from farm raised food and wine. We felt rejuvenated from our time there and highly recommend a stay here when in Italy!
We stayed at Cimbolello for 4 nights during our honeymoon and it was amazing! Francesco and Luisa are fantastic, warm and welcoming hosts. The cottage is simple, with everything we needed and fresh farm eggs and jam were gifted upon arrival.
The location is superb - we used it as our base to explore umbria. It was secluded enough for a peaceful stay, yet only 5 minutes away from the town of Citta della Pieve which had restaurants and supermarkets etc. The farm itself is beautiful, flowers, chickens and the 2 kindest dogs are right on your door step.
We also did the pasta course and it was great eating dinner with and getting to know our hosts a bit better as the sun was going down.
I highly recommend Cimbolello to anyone visiting Umbria and would not hesitate to stay again!
We stayed at Cimbolello for 5 nights. Francesco & Luisa were very warm and welcoming to us during our stay. Francesco met us in Citta della Pieve and showed us the way Cimbolello which may have been difficult to find if he hadn't. Cimbolello is ideal if you want to stay in a simple, tranquil quiet spot but still be close enough to a town where there are a number of good pizzeria/restaurants to eat at. Having said that the produce of the farm which includes pecorino cheese, yoghurt, eggs and honey are excellent and naturally are produced organically.
So amazing! Nothing like staying on a nice quiet farm to relax during our honeymoon. Rented a car and visited some of the small towns in the area; Citta della Pieve, Gubbio, etc. The pasta class/dinner on the farm is a must, the food and company was incredible; all ingredients from the farm. We hope to come visit again soon!
Francesco and Luisa are the best hosts that you can ever imagine. We did the pasta course with Luisa (which is an absolute must) followed by an incredible feast. We really had a blast!! So much fun with these two, our neighbor and her little girl. Honestly, this was totally unexpected. The place is really nice. You got every thing you need plus it's so peaceful. Thank you so much Luisa and Francesco for opening your door and being such nice people. Hopefully our path will cross again in the future.
Francesco and Luisa were perfect hosts! My husband and I spent our honeymoon week here and it was even more amazing than I could imagine. The apartment was a quaint, old style Italian cottage which was perfectly accommodating. We walked into Citta della Pieve everyday which was great exercise for all the eating we did! The property at Cimbelello was even more beautiful than the pictures. The homemade pasta dinner with Francesco and Luisa is a must! This was definitely a trip of a lifetime!

Azienda agricola bio-agriturismo a conduzione familiare, di 5 ettari, sita a due chilometri dal borgo medioevale di Città della Pieve, con un casale in pietra restaurato in bioedilizia. Siamo 4: Francesco, Luisa, Nicolò e Sebastiano.
Siamo ad un’altitudine di 480 metri, in Umbria, e distiamo da Chiusi 12 Km (casello autostradale Chiusi-Chianciano, stazione ferroviaria importante) dal lago Trasimeno 15Km, Orvieto e Perugia 40 Km, Siena 70 Km, Roma e Firenze 130 Km circa.
Affacciati sulla vicina Toscana, l’azienda è composta di vigna, uliveto,pascolo per il piccolo gregge, animali da cortile, api e bosco vicino al quale c’è la nostra casa e gli appartamenti dell’agriturismo,completamente autonomi, che proponiamo in affitto tutto l’anno.
Nella nostra semplice realtà si entra in contatto con un mondo e una vita rurale vera che permette di vivere la campagna in un modo ormai quasi scomparso e per noi di gran fascino.
In questo contesto stiamo percorrendo un modello di vita che ci impegna da oltre venticinque anni.
L’azienda produce vino,olio,miele,formaggi e tanti altri prodotti. L’importanza e l’orgoglio di allevare animali, di potare, concimare, raccogliere, trasformare i nostri prodotti sia vegetali che di origine animale ci danno una varietà continua di lavori, interessi,stimoli, scambi d’informazione e di intuizioni.
There are many shops, from pottery to food ones, jowllery and market, many not tourist. They are really good artisanal stuffs and all what you need for your stay.
Our village Città della Pieve has a very good number of point of interest, hystorical art as frescoes and paints, but also architectural ones, as churches, medioeval walls and palaces.
There are many bars, a pub and a wine cellar bar called "Saltapicchio", a kantina where you always eat something good, pizzeria and restaurants.
