We had a delightful stay in Citta dela Pieve. We could have spent the rest of our vacation there. Our hosts were friendly and helpful.
I enjoyed the birds and bees, the sheep and the dogs... The view is beautiful.
Dinner with the hosts is a real treat, don't miss it!
Amazing place with amazing hosts! Francesco met us in town and lead the way to the Farm. The place is so relaxing, peaceful and comfortable. It's a great place to experience all that Umbria has to offer. Would recommend staying here!
The description and the photographs of the listing were very accurate. The apartment was clean, well maintained and the hosts were very approachable for anything that was needed. I stayed in the Lecciio apartment with my wife and 2 year old daughter while my parents (mid 70's) stayed in the adjoining apartment for one week. This was a great set-up in order to have a shared but separate living experience. Additionally, the set-up is child friendly- there is a sand box, swing etc and very little threat to physical danger for a 2 year old.
Our stay with Francesco and Luisa on their farm, Cimbollela, was a highlight of our trip to Italy. Luisa met us in the nearby town and guided us to their property just 5 min drive away. We were greeted by Francesco, their two dogs, their cat and their chickens. The cottage was delightful, immaculately clean with everything we needed. The first night we enjoyed our dinner under the wisteria pergola using the basket of fresh eggs, homemade cheese and olive oil , homemade relishes and bread plus salad leaves picked freshly from their large vegetable garden. Bellisima! Our pasta making lesson the following night and dinner under the stars with their friends was something we will always remember. We would highly recommend staying here for a truly Italian flavor of Italy and Umbria. Jenny and Rob, Australia.
Leccio is a charming little house: everything to make you feel at home: good bed, good cooking facilities, nice bathroom. Really peaceful to be outside: passing chickens, passing sheep in the meadow below, and friendly cats and dogs. Francesco and Luisa are very good hosts; and try their rosso, cheese and olive oil: really tasty. On walking distance to Città della Pieve; nice town, not too many tourists, and enjoy the terrace of the Bar Degli Artisti: fun!
This was the most wonderful place to stay. It is special not only because Luisa and Francesco are so welcoming and the farm and apartment are so beautiful, but because it feels like a lesson on how to live well. The area is beautiful. We loved being able to get fresh produce that our hosts made themselves, which were very good. We love the friendly dogs.
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!

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.
