A delightful cosy cottage set in beautiful, peaceful countryside
We had a fabulous holiday in this gorgeous cottage, which is set in idyllic countryside at the top of a very windy hill. The views are stunning and we enjoyed the peace and quiet, the only noise coming from the very vocal crickets. The outside covered seating area was especially wonderful with a lovely view over the peaceful garden. The cottage had everything we needed and we loved our stay. Our 5-year-old daughter particularly enjoyed the bunk bed in her bedroom.
We met a few of the residents from the other privately owned apartments and they were very friendly. The pool was delightful and we loved the fact it was a short distance away from the apartments, we had it to ourselves on some occasions. Umbria is a very beautiful part of Italy with many places to visit which weren’t too far away.
We would have liked a little more information about the Castello and the local area. The only negatives if you can call them that, was the microwave did not work, which wasn’t a big problem, we reported this to Francesco early on in our stay but it wasn’t fixed before we left. We also managed to trip the electric which we were aware could happen from the reviews on this site, but had it not been for the neighbours who were only too happy to help, we wouldn’t have known how to get the power back on without contacting Francesco – perhaps some instructions in the cottage would be helpful. This a beautiful place to stay and I would highly recommend it.
Many thanks for your elaborate and nice review.
The microwave has been replaced as quick as we could. And thanks for your feedback on the availability of information about Castello di Gaiche. We have a digital brochure that we send out, it contains info about the surrounding villages and tips for restaurants!
Thanks again and we are looking forward to having you as our guest again.
Hilltop Peace and Quiet
This is a gorgeous little house - not lavishly equipped, but with everything we needed. Part of a small hilltop community at the end of a perfectly windy road - we were bowled over by how special the place is. Immediate access to terrace and a garden with sun all day, trees for shade, heavenly views, lingering sunsets and the odd extremely quiet neighbour. Utter peace and quiet - we were woken only by the birds and untroubled by the internet. Loved the fact that the commodious swimming pool is a step or two apart , and can neither be seen nor heard. Take detailed maps for walking/exploring as there are none in the house, and a portable light so you can see what you are doing at the cooker. Also be aware that if you switch off the plug under the boiler cupboard in the kitchen - you'll turn off the hot water boiler. We longed for more information about the castello, but apart from that it was a perfect, utterly peaceful and beautiful holiday spot.
Many thanks for taking the time for this review. We love to hear that you had a great stay.
We also thank you for your feedback and will definitely take this into account.
Looking forward to welcoming you again!
Ruhiger Wohnung , mit schönem Garten mit herrlicher Aussicht.
Etwas abgelegen auf einem Berg. Dafür gut zum Entspannen. Der Garten hat eine herrliche Aussicht. Im Umkreis von 1 Autostunde sind etliche Sehenswürdigkeiten.
Many Thanks for your kind response. We are happy to learn that you enjoyed the beautiful garden of Castello di Gaiche. We love the smells and tranquillity as well. Hope to welcome you again!
Lovely cottage, wonderful surroundings.
We really enjoyed our stay.
The cottage is comfortable, the garden is beautiful and quiet.
The equipment is complete.
Each day you can visit two or three marvelous towns in the surroundings.
The view from the hill is stunning.
Eine Absprache und was daraus wurde
Sie sollten kein Tierhalter sein, nur Katzen mögen, Abstriche in der Gemütlichkeit machen (wenn sie im Frühjahr in die Wohnung kommen möchten) und das Ambiente einer Eigentümergemeinschaft lieben. Unser Hund durfte mit in das Haus (Absprache) - nach zwei Tagen kam der Verwalter: Hund im Garten an die Leine, Hund im Haus lassen oder Haus verlassen. Wir haben einen Tag später das Haus verlassen (und was daraus wurde).
Dear guest, thank you for this review.
First of all, we regret this experience.
Looking at other guests reviews, however, this review is exceptional. It is also incomplete: it is about you and your dog, not about the house and the surroundings.
We as owners, together with our local manager Francesco, take very good care of Castello di Gaiche. The castello dates back to the 11th century and should be enjoyed and well preserved. We make sure guests have a great time enjoying the house, the castle, the garden and the pool.
A dog that does his poo in the garden, and that bothers other people does not fit in well. We have tried to discuss the dog's behaviour but unfortunately this was not possible. Of course it is a guests good right to leave.
We wish you luck in finding other nice places for you and your dog.
Lovely location and property
Interior a little tired like only one not very comfortable chair and old sofa. No light over cooker difficult to see the dials. Shower new but a very poor mix of hot and cold water. All things that can be remided and then a great place.
Many thanks for your review.
Yes, the bath room is brand new so I will make sure the plumber looks into this matter. And we'll take care of the lights.
Many thanks, happy to hear that you had a great time.
