Interaction with Guests
The place is peaceful and quiet our guests are asked to respect nature and the landscape
Il posto è tranquillo e silenzioso i nostri ospiti sono pregati di rispettare la natura e il paesaggio...
The b & b is in the most beautiful and peaceful setting above Umbertide (about 5 mins by car from the centre). Alessandro met us at Umbertide railway station and we followed him to the house. There is no Wifi which could be an issue but the square in Umbertide has free Wifi as a fallback. Alessandro leaves the running of the b & b to Eduardo and his family. They looked after us - nothing was too much trouble. We ate there twice and had the most delicious meals both times. Classic Italian and very good value. Breakfast is a treat too with homemade cakes fresh from the oven made by Eduardo's wife.
The place is nice and quiet in the countryside. As someone has remarked, it’s also a bit remote and yoy definitely need a car to go there - but that was OK, since that was also what we expected.
The apartment was nice, clean and well equipped for up to 4 persons. But be aware that there is no living room. Relaxing is supposed to take place outdoor, which makes you quite dependant on the weather ;-)
We stayed there off season, as the only guests, and the place appeared a bit closed down. The host was in Rome, and the couple who looked after the place spoke only Italian, which made communication a bit difficult.
Based on that, we would give only 3 stars. However, despite language problems the people at the place was very helpful, opened the otherwise closed restaurant and prepared a very nice dinner (including a good wine) and breakfast. That's worth an extra star ;-)
I must say that we felt rather isolated at this location. I expected to be in the town of Umbertide, but we were in the hills outside of town, and the location was somewhat difficult to find. Having a car is essential to staying at this location.
The hosts were friendly, and tried to make us feel at home, however, Alessandro apparently is not one of the owners. He lives in Rome, and it was sometimes difficult to reach him. There is a restaurant on site which caters just to the guests at the location. We were the only people staying there, since it was after the summer season, but they provided sumptuous meals for just the three of us. We had the restaurant to ourselves. Breakfast in the morning was a treat, with cafe latte, and homemade pastries. The weather was too cold to make use of the pool, which had been one of the main attractions for us.
We had to make arrangements each time we wanted to access their wifi.
The hosts were gracious, tried to make us feel at home, and even washed our dirty clothes for us.
I would have to say that my overall feeling about this location is isolation. I know that some people search this out, but this is not what we had in mind.
Posto bellissimo, pulito, ordinato e tranquillo. Host simpatici e disponibili.
Tutto Ok! Ve lo consiglio davvero!!!
We were greeted by (I think) Alessandro's brother at the train station because we could not find the location on our own with our GPS. When we arrived, the property was very beautiful, just as the photos showed. We were given a tour around the estate. We swam later that evening and our kids were happy to play with the proprietors' kids. We had a lovely dinner on the front patio of pasta, salad, meatloaf, roasted potatoes and vino rosso. The area was very quiet and starlit through the night; we slept well. There was no refrigerator in the "apartment" and I could not get the stove to work to make coffee in the morning.
Un bell'appartamento in un bel casale con un'ampia piscina con vista panoramica . Sia l'appartamento che gli spazi esterni sono molto curati e l'accoglienza è ottima. Alessandro si è dimostrato molto disponibile sia prima che durante il soggiorno. è un luogo assolutamente adatto per chi cerchi tranquillità ma anche per visitare città e borghi storici dell'Umbria (Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi, ecc.). Ottima accoglienza per le famiglie con bambini come la nostra. Assolutamente consigliato.
