Best Holidays Ever! Amazing Villa
I went with my family for a week in October, and I can´t recommend villa well enough! The location is just magical, Breathtaking! The area is perfect for the kids. The house is stunning, big bedroom, very confortable and clean. But one of the best things is the Host. Mario, Can't thank you enough! He was the best host we ever had. He recommend us where to visit, best restaurants on the area, he organized horse riding for the kids. He even gave us cooking lessons!! Umbria is wonderful! Amazing wines! Love this place. We will definitely go back. xx
Thank you, it was a pleasure to have you and your family staying with us.
Stayed in Villa Pianesante with 7 friends and couldn't have had a better time. Great views, awesome grounds, great staff and a ridiculous amount of space in the villa.
Mario helped us set up a few wine tours as well as a fantastic dinner in nearby Acqualoreto. He couldn't have been more accommodating!
Highly recommended place if you're into, you know, having an AWESOME time in Umbria.
We had a wonderful stay at the lovely Villa Pianesante at the end of May. The most important thing to mention about our stay is the amazing hospitality and generousity of the owner Mario. We were 2 couples, 2 kids and 1 dog and we had originally booked our stay at the smaller Villa Cipresso, but Mario was generous enough to upgrade us to the huge Villa Pianesante because we were lucky to be the only guests that week. My husband and I are very interested in food and wine experiences and I bombarded Mario with emails and questions, both before and during our stay, and he always responded with excellent recommendations. He also arranged for us to receive a gift of delicous wild asparagus, just because they were in season and he wanted us to try them. This is just one small example of the incredible hospitality at Todi Castle, which is really what sets them apart from others.
We booked the private chef for several meals, including a lovely welcome dinner on the day of our arrival as well as a pizza party for the kids. The pizza party could perhaps have been more hands-on with the kids, but again I think it is really more a question of telling them what you want. Please make sure to book massages by the pool, a great experience. We were also invited to have one of the dinners booked with the chef at the castle, which was an amazing experience with the dinner served in a medieval tower with a huge fireplace and an armor in the corner - the kids loved it.
The villa itself is lovely, old, but modernised Italian style with a comfortable living room and lots and lots of space. It is huge. The kitchen could perhaps have been better equipped with some sharper knives and more bowls, but I think this is a common flaw in rental houses. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the house, considering the size. Everything was spotless.
The grounds and views are incredible. The house is surrounded not by a garden, but rather a park with olive trees and wooded areas - and the entire property was completely fenced in which was perfect for us because of the dog, which could roam freely. The pool was beautiful, if a bit cold at the end of May when the season was just getting started.
The villa is very private, but still centrally located for Umbria sightseeing and not too far from Todi, which is a lovely town. Make sure to have pizza one night at the pizzaria Rosa nearby, the best pizza I have ever had and homemade limoncello, wonderful.
We certainly hope to be back at Tod
Absolutely womderful! Hidden treasure!
TodiCastle is Magical! I joined some friends at TodiCastle for a week and loved it. Mario, Sabrina, Katrina and the rest of the staff made it a week to remember. Villa Piesante is an unbelievable 5 bedroom 5 bathroom private villa with it's own pool and spectacular view of the neighboring towns. You know when you pull up you are going to love it, then walk in to find the complimentary welcome basket and it's time to sit down and watch the spectacular sunset. We had dinner in the small town of Fiore at Rosa dei Venti twice and I swear it was the best pizza I have ever had, the other dishes were excellent also. We took day trips to Assisi, Florence, Spoleto, Todi and one of my favorite cities in Italy, Orvieto. If you are looking for any kind of ceramics, Deruta is only 45 minutes away. While some couples flew into Rome and came directly, others visited other parts of Italy the week before then came to TodiCastle to relax. Our final night there Mario hosted a delicious dinner in this beautiful medieval room with a giant fireplace. Mario was kind enough to give us a tour of the castle and we were able to see some of the rooms that are decorated with antiques and family treasures from all over the world... it's like a museum! I am recommending it to anyone visiting Italy and will definitely return. Mi Piace TodiCastle!!!
Villa Pianesante is the perfect place to stay!
Villa Pianesante was clean and super well-maintained.
Mario and his staff provided an excellent customer service.
I would strongly recommend this property.
There were plenty of activities, attractions and restaurants in the area.
It was amazing. Go there !
Biggest villa of the estate!!
We had a big come-together holiday with the family and this villa was just perfect! There was more than enough room for everybody, also to take some time for your own.
With the big swimming pool, great nature and incredible good pure Italian hospitality, this was a holiday that we'll never forget!
Thanks Mario and staff!!
