We stayed at the house as a group of 11 including children ages 10 up. Patrizia and Carla organised a lovely complementary meal of lasagne, bruschetta and salads for our first night and it was delicious. We were greeted by Patrizia and have nothing but praise for how Patrizia responded to all of our questions.
The house itself has 4 bedrooms with access to another 2 double rooms via separate external access. A little cottage also provides another bedroom. The main house is beautifully furnished with creative art pieces and the lounge is very roomy and cosy. The pool was perfect for our stay, particularly as we arrived during the unprecedented heatwave. The pool is the best that we have used during our various visits to Umbria as it is a great size and within a very short walk from the house. A outside shower is also really useful.
The location itself is fairly remote although the garden and outside space is magical. Be prepared however, for the steep drive to the Villa from San Vito.
The local town, San Vito, is tiny so we regularly ventured to larger towns close by such as Narni (approx. 30 mins drive) and Otricolli (approx. 15 minutes’ drive). Otricolli offers a couple of restaurants offering good food at affordable prices. However, a car is a must and we regularly visited towns in this part of Umbria, including Orto, Spoleto and Todi which all offer nice historical sights and good food.
All in all, we had a lovely stay at the house. Our only observation is that a large group with small children should consider how the sleeping arrangements will work as the outside bedrooms/separate cottage may not be ideal for them.
Dear Kam, thankyou for your lovely words, we apreciated them! Carla and I found the house clean and very tidy! You are wonderful guests, highly recommended! We are happy that you had a good stay and happy that we met you.
Thankyou very much Kam! Best wishes to all, Carla and Patrizia
Il casale delle meraviglie
Nel periodo a cavallo di capodanno i miei amici ed io (10 adulti e 6 bambini), abbiamo soggiornato per quattro giorni in questo splendido casale vicino Roma. Al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato l'intero alloggio pulitissimo. La struttura e' arredata con grande gusto ed eleganza, curata nei minimi particolari, gli spazi comuni sono adatti ad accogliere tutti gli ospiti indicati. La cucina, oltre che bellissima, e' dotata di tutto il necessario. Meravigliosa la veranda che da' sul giardino. Completa questo posto incantato una bellissima dependance adatta ad accogliere 5 persone, del tutto indipendente essendo dotata di cucina e bagno. Nelle vicinanze gli splendidi paesi di Narni e Otricoli con buoni ristoranti anche se il nostro consiglio e' quello di....fare la spesa e rimanere in casa data la bellezza del posto! Degna di nota la presenza nelle vicinanze di personale, gentilissimo, disponibile per ogni necessità. Un ringraziamento particolare alla proprietaria sig.ra Carla, cortesissima e raffinata, che ci ha riservato una splendida accoglienza facendoci sentire subito "a casa". Assolutamente da non perdere.
