We had the most wonderful stay with Franceso & Luisa on their beautiful farm.We stayed at Cimbolello for three nights. We were all sad to leave but happy that we had found such a special place with such warm hearted kind people. Memories and friendships we will certainly cherish for a lifetime. The apartment has a cottage feel being in the heart of the farm with amazing views and the feeling of privacy. The animals are all very friendly and our two young boys 4 & 6 loved meeting them all and couldn't wait to explore every morning. The farm is very safe and welcoming for young children. Luisa and Francesco had a basket of fresh eggs waiting for us upon arrival. They were always available if needed, yet also allowed us to expore and relax on our own without restrictions. Our pasta dinner al fresco was delicious with homemade fresh organic cheeses, sauces, desserts and wine all made with love and care on their farm. It was fun for the boys to be able to take part in making the pasta. We cannot say enough about this Umbrian treasure. If we are lucky enough, we will certainly be back.
Francesco and Luisa's farm is absolutely beautiful and they are two of the nicest people we have ever met. Set just outside of Citta della Pieve, it truly is an amazing, peaceful place. The apartment itself was perfect and we only wish we'd had more time to spend here. They produce fantastic wine, cheese, fresh jam, lavender oil and more. We also spent a night learning how to make fresh tagliatelle that we all ate together and it was delicious! So glad we found this place and really hope to return one day!
Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Cimbolello. Fransesco et Luisa sont des gens très sympathiques et très accueillants. L'endroit est fantastique, l'appartement est magnifique et on s'y sent très bien. C'est tranquille et paisible et il fait bon y être. Nius aurions aimé y séjourner plus longtemps.
Louisa, Francesco and their son, are very warm hospitable people. All three plus their two dogs greeted us as we drove in and made us feel very welcome.
The farm and our accommodation were a tranquil haven yet close enough to every place we wanted to visit. It makes a perfect base. An added attraction are the home made jams, honey, cheese, wine and fresh eggs.
We felt there was nothing they would not do to make our stay enjoyable.
What an amazing experience living in a farm? Especially with Francesco and Lucia. They are such gracious hosts. Everything is home grown and home made. They had a jar of their home made lavender lime honey and the eggs from the chickens in their own farm waiting for me. The apartment is rustic and opens up to an incredible peace of land with amazing peace and beauty. They had a cooking class for me and another guest, made us delicious pasta from scratch and home made chess and jams and ended it with delicious tiramisu.
highly recommend this beautiful real life natural Italian farm stay. Francesco pick me up to enter to his location which is not far but may be a bit tricky to find by yourself. Soon as I arrive I can feel the nature, generosity and hospitality of Franceso and Louisa.
What an AMAZING experience it was staying with Francesco and Luisa. They are the kindest people and it was truly a blessing to have found them and have the opportunity of staying in their BEAUTIFUL property. This cottage itself was so wonderful, very clean, cozy, just perfect! We enjoyed our time here very much, from taking the cooking class with Luisa, to enjoying a delicious and fun dinner afterwards with the family, and also enjoying VERY MUCH Their homemade cheese and wine/liquors (which I am STILL enjoying since I brought all this home with me!). Perfect place to relax and feel at home in the middle of a picturesque countryside. HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE!
