About this listing
Inside Medioeval town, the apartment give to guests the chance to live in indipendent home, where the noise is unknow, and where is possible to sleep after a a day in Roma, eating and living the Italian life in unusual environment.
Starting this season (2013) the horst offer half/full day service to the guest; Tour (by choice) of Spoleto,or Marmore water falls, or Valnerina Valley, Piediluco lake, Todi town and other, eating local food and drinking local vine in very particular real Italian restaurant! (this is out of the apartment price service).
Stroncone, is an unspoiled hill town of 6000 people, near to the town and transport hub of Terni, (Umbria region), which has all the facilities of a modern town.
Small, compact, and little known outside of Italy, Stroncone is the ideal base for exploring the better known, and more crowded and expensive, towns of South Umbria - such as Spoleto, Todi, Montefalco, Narni and Trevi.
At a height of 450 meters, it enjoys a favourable climate compared to the settlements on the plain.
Roma, capital of Italy, is very well connected by train, and is easy to reach in less than 1 hour from Terni town.
The house is built into the old walls of the town and overloocks a beautiful valley which is accessored by a path a few hundred yards form the house. Then walks to the ridge of the Appennines - at a 1000 meters - are possible.
Althought small, the house is fully equipped, and ideal for a couple.
It represents the best value to be had in South Umbria one of the most friendly and helpful hosts imaginable.
Use the home as it it yours. To keep lower the price of the apartment, there aren't cleaning fees, so please provide yourself about it.
If not, the cleaning service will be arranged by the horst, with additional cost of 40€ to pay locally.

Luca and Francesca immediately made us feel welcome by meeting us at the train station, and on the way to Stroncone, they pointed out sites and gave us information on the area. The apartment is in a nice, quiet area, and very clean. We were very comfortable.
Stroncone is a lovely town, and we hope to come back again.

Thankyou so much Luca for your kind hospitality and the privilege of staying in such an amazing place!
We have to wait for the keys of the apartment for 2,5 hours in front of the house until 7.30 P.M. , because the owner has to work until late.
The apartment felt like a bunker ; very dark , no view at all and the matrass of the sleeping couch was horrible. ( unable to sleep on ) The place is beautifull ; in the middle of a medival village on the top of a hill with great surroundings for exploring. The apartment is cheap , but not a place to come back again. If you want to visit the area , there must be much better places for staying. Just spent a little much more money for this

We've spent 4 days in beautiful Stroncone.
Luca is very nice and friendly person. Though we arrived late in the evening he patiently welcomed us with a smile, and thanks for his concern he even asked us if we have eaten something when we told him that we had a long drive to the place. We were pleased to find in the apartment a lot of booklets, maps and other information about town and surroundings. Luca also kindly provides a bus tickets and schedule.
Apartment is a really nice place, exactly what you expect to see in a small medieval town. Particularly we have to mention a fireplace that we used with a great pleasure. And I still remember the great feeling of sunshine through the window in the early morning and the beautiful view of olive groves on the hillside.
We kindly thank people of Stroncone for their warmness and hospitality, our neighbors for help and advice, people on the streets for smiling and greeting, even the local police! We had a fine for parking and chief of the local police and his staff were so kind and patient to explain us where to pay it and how to reduce the amount (all that mostly with a gesture language 'cause we could not really understand most of the words)
We really liked the place and would like to visit it again.
Luca, thanks a lot for your hospitality and say hello to the neighbors and police chief!
Stroncone is a place to go. You will find everything you need for a phantastic stay in Italy: 2 alimentari, 2 cafe, 4 restaurants, 1 tabacco. The flat is realy quite, smal but you have everything you need. We enjoyed our stay in Lucas house an in Stroncone and came back totally relaxed.
