La casetta degli angeli (angels house) is a modest villa in romantic 2 ha.'s park which is known as 'al settimo cielo' (in seventh heaven). It is in Etruscan Central Italy. Rome and Florence are easy to reach, either by car (110 resp. 130 km) or by train(1 and 1,5 hrs by train).
Although the house has two apartments, it is to let as a whole as well.
The apartments are furnished in a personal way with a mix of modern&vintage furniture. All art in the apartments is for sale. So you may not find, what you have seen on this website!
Central heating is available, wood stoves as well. There are 8 single beds, we can make a child's bed available on request. In each bedroom/mezzanine is room for 2 persons. The kitchens are well equipped with plenty of crockery, (tea) towels etc.
You will find blankets+sheets on the beds (one set per week), we provide towels (one set= two towels per person per week), except one for the beach. If you are in need for that, you will have to bring it with you.
There is music equipment and internet (wifi). The whole parc is at your disposal. There is plenty of garden furniture. You can park in the site.
We are extremely flexible: you may choose from selfcare to fresh bread in the morning, baked by the celestials. You may also sit down to our table twice per week. We will prepare you a heavenly meal with wine out of Bacchus's jars (25 euro per person).
You choose us because of our personal approach and flexibility.
We can provide you for fine arts materials and eventually a teacher on request, if possible. Price depends on our mutual agreement.
The owners are most willing to take you to secret places which you would not have found (apart from admissions, you pay what it's worth to you). If you prefer to go on your own, many small towns and villages are in the very vicinity, just like Etruscan excavations, museums, churches, sculpture parks etc.
This paradise is perfect for people seeking for rest and peacefulness, like nature lovers, writers, composers,readers,musicians. Also parents with small children may have a good time here. It is too beautiful to just stay one night!
If the whole house is too big for you, please contact us. You may rent just one apartment.
If you are 10 we offer you a wooden lodge with a double bed, bathroom and small terrace for 200 E(midseason) and 250 E (highseason) per week extra.
In all seasons gas and electricity according to consumption!
In case you would like to stay for longer than a holiday please get in touch: (email hidden). It is a heavenly spot, perfect for writing a book, composing music, concentrating on creative work like sculpture, ceramics, painting etc.
We have had many positive reviews. We cite only this one:"We stayed in the 'casetta degli angeli' at alsettimocielo over the winter 2011/12 period for three and a half months. If there was a heaven on earth then this is the place to be. A stunningly tranquil setting to structure my book disturbed only by the wildlife. Observing nature through the seasonal changes (even through one of the harshest winters of recent years!) we found meditative, spiritual and rewarding. We left here with a new language, a love of Italian food and a refreshed zest for life.
Edith and Willem have made us both feel welcome and have been both helpful and accommodating since the day we arrived. As tour guides, they are informative and passionate towards sharing their knowledge and love of this beautiful area of Italy. As multi linguists they possess a wicked, dry sense of humour!
We hope to return to 'Seventh Heaven' in the near future.

Willem and Edith have a beautiful home in the hills of Umbria. their apartments are clean and well appointed. On our arrival we were greeted by Willem and introduced to our accommodations in which they had left a selection of jams, coffee, olive oil and both white and red wines, all the essentials. For someone looking for a relaxing place off the beaten path, this surely would be a place to consider. Willem and Edith were quite generous hosts, inviting us on numerous occasions for breakfast or dinner. Should your travels bring you to the Umbria region I would highly recommend this for consideration.

I find this a great place to stay. It's located away from the main road so very quiet. Willem & Edith are very kind and will make freshly baked bread in the morning if you like.
The apartments have a lot of privacy and ample space to sit either in the sun or shadow, depending on the weather. With your own fireplace, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom you can be fully self supporting.
The beds are nice, we sept very well.
We had a great time!
