Perfekt Wohnung, sehr gut ausgestattet und absolut sauber
Wir hatten hier fünf Nächte und es war wirklich perfekt. Nette Gastgeber die uns sogar eine vegetarische Lasagne vorbereitet und einen Blumenstrauß ins Wohnzimmer gestellt haben. Sehr idyllisch und ruhig. Die Bilder versprechen nicht zu viel! Tolle Anlage mit Pool und Dampfbad. Perfekt für vier aber auch zu sechst denkbar…
Greater Than Expected
Off an unmarked entrance be assured that what lies beyond is truly heavenly! At the end of the narrow road we found our home for the next few days. What we saw was a spectacular view from a pool overlooking olive trees as far as the eye can see. Nestled within was a stately home which captured our imagination as we unwound from the days drive. Our apartment was spotless and charming (exactly as the pictures promised) with a well equipped kitchen (including a bottle of their own olive oil, salt, pepper, a days worth of coffee, and of course a delicious lasagna) The fire place is large, lovely, with enough wood for us to enjoy the entire time. Enjoy we did, as we found that after a days worth of exploring the best thing was sitting in front of a roaring fire with a glass of wine and a good book on a chilly evening in October. We didn't stay long enough! We realized that although there is plenty to see in the area, one of the pleasures of Pianciano is simply relaxing and taking it all in either by the pool (yes during the day it was plenty warm enough) or choosing a spot on the lawn with a view of the ancestral home. During our stay we enjoyed the local truffles, wine, and olive oil with fresh pasta and fascinating conversation with Claudia and Francesco. All of us want to return as others have done (some each year for the last 15 years) but next time will be for a longer stay. Believe all the glorious comments left by others, they are all true. It was certainly the highlight of our trip.
Myself and two friends rented the Roccia farmhouse and stayed 4 nights. Claudia made the reservation process painless and we were greeted by Dorel upon arrival. The Roccia is a gorgeous stone farmhouse with an incredible 500 year history having previously served as barracks for troops that guarded the Pianciano family castle (sadly, no longer standing). The house is space with a vaulted ceiling living room and large fireplace which we enjoyed on 2 nights. Plenty of wood was available a short distance away. The kitchen had everything we needed as we opted to dine in every night. Fresh eggs were available for breakfast and we enjoyed a few tomatoes and green beans from the garden. There are three bedrooms, two on one side of the home and a third on the other side accessed by an elevated walkway looking down to the living room. We LOVED everything about the home, property, history, caretaker and owners. Francesco, property owner and Claudia's husband, offered us an extensive tour of their estate which can be seen from the farmhouses. We had no idea what to expect but it looked impressive from the distance and turned out to be sooooooooooooooooo much more! The tour was without a doubt a highlight of our stay in Umbria. Grazie mille to our gracious hosts, Francesco and Claudia and to the property managers.
Trust me - you will NOT be disappointed!
The property was just as good or better then what the photos showed. Francesco and Claudia, the owners of the property, were present when we arrived. They gave us a tour of the property and much advice on the surrounding area of Umbria. They were very gracious hosts. The guest home, that we stayed in, was beautifully appointed, and had all the necessary items for a trouble free stay. Also the caretaker of the property, Dorel, was always available for any issues that may arise. He even helped me with a car issue that occurred. The setting was beautiful and tranquil. The perfect Italian countryside getaway. Definitely a 5 star property. I hope to return someday.
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this beautiful property, with terrific hosts who happily and graciously went the extra mile. We look forward to a return visit to this glorious part of the world and the stylish comfort of Pianciano.
Incredible place, gracious hosts, a wonderful time!
