Was really great staying with Annie. Annie and her partner made us feel right at home from the start. Great place to stay with amazing breakfasts! We loved our chats and the wonderful place Annie has.
Thanks Marc. It was lovely hosting you both and hope you are having a brilliant trip.
MOST BEAUTIFUL VIEW OVER CASTGLIONE DEL LAGO IN DELIGHTFUL PLACE!
If you are looking for relaxing holidays we only can recommend Annie's lovely home - we fell in love with her spacious garden- enjoying the kingsize hammock whilst appreciating the panorama and the hot, bright, sunny wheather. Annie and Derek are lovely, very helpful, and refreshing, we enjoyed all of their company and attention in giving helpful tipps n tricks how to discover tuscany's most 'wanted' places...not to forget the delicious breakfast they served. As the place is on the countryside it ll be useful to have a car, rent bikes or scooters. (Annie always offered us to drop us off somewhere.) Thanks for your kind attention- we loved our stay at your umbrian cottage!
Heerlijke week gehad. Annie heeft "ornamenteel" tot een heel nieuw level gebracht. Al gaat dat hier en daar wel ten koste van de ruimte. Oh en de lake view, daar heb je wel een verrekijker bij nodig! Pozzuolo ligt sowieso zó afgelegen dat eigen vervoer een must is.

Annie's cottage was just right for our short stay. Her recommendation of the nearby town patisserie Michele was fantastic. Bed was comfortable and breakfast was generous! Annie was a friendly host.
We loved our week's stay with Annie; the cottage is delightful, the bed very comfortable and the lovely peaceful garden has beautiful lake views. Annie was wonderful - friendly, helpful and real fun. We met Derek later in the week and really enjoyed the evening we all spent together. Castiglione is well situated for sight-seeing (we had a car) and both Annie and Derek offered us a wealth of useful tips on the best places to visit. Great week!
Annie was such a wonderful host who made us feel right at home. Her cottage was cosy and very comfortable with spectacular views of the countryside and the lake!
We had a very good visit with Annie and Angus the room and house is nice and the time spent out in the garden with lake in the distance with a wine great. We had dinner which was beautiful .We would highly recommend staying thanks.
Annie was wonderful! So were her pets, lots of fun!
The cottage was as beautiful as in the photo's, we had a very good time, and good food.
Annie went out of her way to make sure we got around. Her house is much better to get to by car, though we came by train and got around by bus and on bikes too. It was an adventure because in Italy people don't walk, and there is only the road with the cars. But, cycling along in the early morning hours and viewing the Umbrian countryside is fantastic! And thanks to Annie and her friend Derek's tips and them dropping us off at public transport spots we got around to Perugia and Orvieto and nearby Castiglione del Lago. There is so much more to do there and time needed for relaxing in the hammock... and enjoying the food and wine and talks. A great place!
a delightful guest. punctual and full of resources...
polite and communicative for arrival times...
Even though Annie stayed only for few days at my apartments, definently I met a very gentle, friendly and nice person. We shared verynice and traditional moments. As a host, i strongly reccomend her to every other hosts.
I have known Annie for many years through the travel industry. I can attest that apart from being an extremely charming and delightful person, she is a highly regarded and competent travel professional with a thorough knowledge of Italy and its culture. I have visited Annies home and enjoyed her warm hospitality and would recommend others to do so.
I moved to Umbria from Sweden in July 2012 and met Annie for the first time early in the fall. She is the kind of person that you immediately feel comfortable with, like you known them for a very long time. Her home is like herself, warm and welcoming, decorated in a country house style making it a cosy retreat. I enjoy coming to her home for dinner, which is always well prepared and delicious. Annie has lived in this part of Italy for over 25 years and she is familiar with the area and can suggest a number of excursions in the are as well as more distant ones since her work takes her around Italy.
I have known and worked with Annie for the past 8 years. I would thoroughly recommend staying at her charming, pretty cottage with its lovely gardens and gorgeous lake views. Annie is the perfect hostess with her warm and generous personality, her fabulous sense of humour, her great cooking skills and extensive knowledge of Tuscany and Umbria and many other parts of Italy. You will be in good hands!

Annie is a marvellous bubbly and lively person. I have known her for 5 years and have loved going to her pretty house for dinner, she is a good cook and very good organiser, so if you go a stay with her she is bound to suggest some unusual things to do in the area. You will have a lovely time as she is a great host.
I have been working and traveling with Annie for the last 13 years, and never feel more at home "on the road" than when I am staying in her beautiful cottage! Her welcoming hospitality and the charm of her cottage makes me want to stay there forever! Her extensive knowledge of the area's sight seeing, restaurants, wineries, and local villages taught me many aspects of the Italian culture and lifestyle that I would not have been able to learn without her. I can recommend this experience to everyone looking for a great vacation in Italy!
I have known Annie for 30 years and she has always been a wonderful home-maker, full of taste and style. She is also a brilliant cook and very hospitable. I have stayed many times at her homes in London and Umbria.
I have traveled from the States to Umbria and Tuscany and have found Annie's bed and breakfast to be a wonderful warm home. Centrally located we were able to visit great villages and of course vineyards on easy day trips. Annie is not only a fabulous host she is very knowledgeable about the area.... I can't wait to go back....
Annie has been a dear friend and advisor of ours ever since we restored our 17th century house in Umbria and began to rent out our apartments 10 years ago. (see (URL HIDDEN) Annie's advice about how to go about marketing and growing our business, and how to handle the international clients has been superb. She is incredibly well informed, creative, energetic, trustworthy, and resourceful. She is wonderful to work with and to know. The highest recommendation possible! 10 out of 10! Harris
Dan and I have known Annie for 6 years and she is a good and trusted friend. She lives near us in a lovely house in beautiful countryside. She has a warm personality, is very good with people and she is an excellent cook. We unhesitatingly give her our highest recommendation.
I have known Annie for quite a few years..stayed at her lovely home and enjoyed the warmest hospitality! Her home is beautifully decorated and very cozy , with a lovely garden to sit in and read a book with a nice glass of wine. You will have a wonderful experience in Italy and have a memorable visit. She is very knowledgeable about all that is happening in the area and her warm personality is an added bonus for all who stay there.
