  • We just loved our stay in this little appartment in Tuoro, perfect for a couple. Clean, tidy and well equiped. Alex is a perfect host, helpful and very quick to reply on mail and text. Tuoro is a lovely little town with its Piazza just around the corner, perfect for a coffe or drink along with wifi. In sunmertime there is always something going on around the piazza. A couple of good restaurants close as well. We will be back.

    Response from Alexia:

    Ann's review refers to "delighthouse 1".
    "Delightful house 1" is immediately below "Delightful House 2".
    Although It is a cozy small apartment, It is ideal for two people while "delightful house 1" is bigger than "delightful house 2" and it is ideal for family.
    Thanks again Ann

  • This is a very lovely flat. The host and her friend Joelle are friendly.

  • We stayed in the apartment for five nights in mid-October and used it as a base to day-trip to the villages in Tuscany and Umbria. It is well located for day-trips to Assisi, Sienna and Montipulciano, Cortona, and day-long meanderings to other enchanting hill villages that have not yet been discovered by the tour bus crowds.

    The apartment was clean, well furnished, and very comfortable. The the village of Tuoro was a delight for evening strolls. The village has a nice grocery and butcher, pharmacy, coffee shop (bar), fine restaurant and a neighborhood pub all within a couple of blocks of the apartment.

    Alexia is very prompt in responding to questions concerning the apartment and its location.

    All-in-all, a very "Delightful House" and an enjoyable experience.

  • We had a wonderful 9 nights in a Alexia's house and the bowl of fruit on arrival was most appreciated. The house was as described, clean and a pleasure to come back to each evening. We had 2 beautiful meals at the restaurant next door and can highly recommend the bore and the rabbit. Should we ever return to this lovely area we would certainly try to book Alexia's house again.

  • we loved the apartment and the town. the delightful house had rustic charm yet was modern and well appointed. the location was terrific, whether you stay local or make daytrips to other villages. alexia wasn't able to meet us directly but her assistant was there to let us in. i would most definately stay there again.

  • Everything was as described at airbnb. We got the keys from a friend of Alexia and spent a few nice days in the area.

  • Alexia's home is the perfect little rustic getaway! My boyfriend and I were looking to escape the stress of big city living and that's exactly what we got. Waking up to gorgeous views, fresh fruit in the fridge, and perfectly made caffe lattes at the nearby bar (cafe) was exactly how I wanted to spend my mornings! And the town... it's just wonderful. The shopkeepers are friendly and talkative (even if you don't know Italian...if you come prepared with a little language book, you can get by), the food at the nearby restaurants is AMAZING, and you're in driving distance to a somewhat larger town with restaurants and shops on the lake if you want to explore beyond where you are staying but not go too far.

    Even though I didn't get to meet Alexia, she's great! She was always quick to answer my questions before we left for Italy. And when we got lost along the way (we rented a car), she took the time to speak with me on the phone. She's very kind and helpful!

  • We had a wonderful 3 nights in Alexia's lovely house. Communication with Alexia was easy and quick, she even arranged to have us picked up from the station. Tuoro is a beautiful old town and the house was fantastic, with everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay - our only regret was we only had 3 nights! Thanks Alexia!!!

  • The "Delightful House" was just that! My girlfriend and I found the place not only charming, but beautifully situated as a base from which to explore both Umbria and Tuscany.

    Anyone staying here should not fail to have at least one meal at the Osteria La Pergola restaurant, which is right next door. The food there is wonderful and the owners perfectly delightful.

  • Alexia's house is cozy and well maintained, with a living room annex kitchen area, a large bedroom and a comfortable bathroom. It is well situated in a nice Italian village near the Lago Trasimeno. Have a coffee, a croissant and freshly squeezed orange (email hidden) on the village 'piazza' in the morning, and you will feel like in an italian movie. The house is also a good base to visit this beautiful part of Umbria, with cities like Perugia and Cortona. I can recommend you to stay at Alexia's house, you will not be dissapointed.

I have visited many different places around the world because I was a pilot but ..I found out that make friends, from different culture, is another way to explore the world;) Listing: "Delightful House in Italy 1 and 2" This house belonged to my great-grandparents. It's been completely renovated and now It's a confortable house for your holidays. I'm happy to accommodate you and I hope you'll have fun here. This part of Italy is wonderful and It deserves to be visited. I speak English, Italian .. Je parle un peu francais ... but my writing style is awful;) My motto is: "Don't spend your life to play the role that others have chosen for you"
