This wonderful place offers you the experience to step back in time , but with the modern conveniences of today. Words and pictures can never do it justice it is a must see. The castle owners, Rikki and Lorenzo are the most gracious hosts who could not do enough to insure our comfort and enjoyment. This place was my favorite part of our Italian adventure.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this very tastefully restored Olive Mill. We stayed with 2 friends and all 4 of us had THE most wonderful time and would return in a heartbeat.
Firstly our hosts, Rikke and Lorenzo, couldn't have been more welcoming, hospitable and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Every restaurant recommendation was spot on, Rikke even took the time to book a table on a couple of occasions for us. We toured the castle with Lorenzo and Rikke and , the wine making part of the castle and the vineyards. Irk and Lorenzo were truly the perfect hosts.
Our 2 bedroom villa was very clean, very spacious, simply all that we hoped it would be. The kitchen led directly to a beautiful outdoor area complete with large table, chairs to relax in and was the perfect spot for breakfast, sunset drinks and dinners under the stars.
Just a short walk away was a delightful pool, with a beautiful view , equipped with numerous sun lounges and umbrellas. In the other direction, also just a very short walk away is the Bar, the perfect location for our morning cappuccino and our evening aperitivo, run by a delightful family.
The location is the perfect setting to combine days of sightseeing , being close enough for outings in Perugia, Civita di Bagnoregio (A MUST) , Orvieto, Panicale and many many others. The walk up to the Fendi village is worth doing, it is very pretty and the view back to the castle fantastic.
Restaurants we tried and loved, Il Gatto Giallo ( The Yellow Cat) , Massolino ( Panicale), Osteria a Priori ( Perugia). Truffle hunting was so much fun and scrambled eggs with shaved truffle is a must. A day trip to Assisi was worthwhile with a 3 hr tour with Umbria Con Me.
All in all, the trip of a lifetime, in a stunning location with wonderful hosts. Just don't book it when we want to return please!
A fabulous getaway from the fast life
Wonderfully spacious, antique filled and clean accommodation on top of a mountain in Umbria, beautiful views in all directions, fresh air and to top it all part of a renovated medieval castle. The stories from our excellent hosts Rikki and Lorenzo about wine making and the history of the castle are compelling - with real stone cannon balls found lodged in the walls from previous attacks on the castle. Nearby Esso station in Montegabbione - they make excellent coffee and cornetti (sounds strange ....but worked really well for us for breakfast). And within easy reach of Perugia, Orvieto, two beautiful lakes and the amazing Scarzuoli (15 minutes away) - ancient home of St Francis. This was a particular highlight for us! If you want a week in peace and quiet, with great hosts, wonderful wine, fabulous views....well you cant go wrong here.
