Perfection In The Umbrian Countryside

Ca de Muito is the essence of perfection in the Umbrian countryside. The property is graced with hedges of rosemary and lavender that gently carve their way to a beautiful pool and surrounding slopes of natural wonder. The house is charming: well appointed with all necessaries, clean, and graced with lovely surprises, such as the stone basin under the upstairs window and balcony off the bedroom. The pictures are accurate. And because they are, I knew that it would be a tough home base to leave for day outings. I was right. The grounds remained unsurpassed in their beauty for all the day tripping that we did. As for accuracy in its description, all matched the promise, except that the bed in the master bedroom is in fact queen size. Billed as a double, this was almost a deal breaker for our tallness, but I was prepared to take the upper berth to be able to stay in the house. Martin and Emma are consummate professionals, immediately responsive to ensuring that our stay went without a hitch. And, if you take in no other wine tasting other than Martin's at a vineyard down the road, you will have experienced the best. From field study of the vines to a visit in the cellar, replete with one of the best dinners we've ever had, this evening was the mind-blowing piece de resistance of our perfect stay.

We enjoyed the beautiful weather and views. The villa is very comfortable as well.

We enjoyed it very much, everything to do with the house, the gardens and pool, and the surrounding countryside, was beautiful.

A fantastic week at Ca de Muito

We had a fantastic week at Ca' di Muito. The house is in a superb location for seeing all the well known sites of central Italy such as Perugia, Cortona, Assisi, Orvieto, Todi, Florence and even Rome (for a long day).
The owners have thought of everything and the house is very comfortable and homely and has excellent wifi signal in the house as well as at the pool. The gardens are gorgeous and the pool and views from it are spectacular. We were joined most days by a family of peacocks which was great fun. Couldn't fault this place and cant wait to go back.

Absolutely wonderful

It was absolutely wonderful! We had a fantastic week and such a stunning villa and location. I'll be including the villa in my review of Tuscany as a holiday destination for - so will send you the link once it's online.

Very beautiful

I have been meaning to let you know that we absolutely loved the house and garden. I expect Emma told you that we were kept company by a family of peacocks. It was a wonderful holiday and I wish we were still there.

A Wonderful Holiday

The house and the entire property were absolutely beautiful, and we really loved our stay there.
