This was our second visit to Ca di Bracco as a family of seven adults and two under 16s and once again we had the most wonderful holiday. The solar heated pool was warm enough to enjoy in late May, we basked in the hot tub almost every night and we ate fresh pizzas from the pizza oven on the terrace enjoying the gorgeous views. Emma and Martin are so helpful, booking restaurants for us, doing some shopping for us before we arrived, offering advice and even some packets of spaghetti when we ran out. They are great, friendly hosts but we also felt that the villa was very private and that we had the place to ourselves. Thank you both.

Ca di Bracco

We stayed here as a Family of 5 adults for 7 nights. It was everything we had hoped for and a had a truly wonderful time relaxing at this villa. The hot tub and pool were a wonderful draw card as well as the setting and glorious views. The bedrooms having a bathroom each was an added bonus and we all felt we were in our own space. Well done to Martin for all his helpfulness and driving one of our daughters to the train station. Thank you for your hospitality.

by Jakub S on Holiday Villas Tuscany & Umbria

We had a really good time. My parents loved it and that was the most important thing as me and my sister booked the stay as a xmas present for them. Martin was a great host. We enjoyed his wine tasting evening and we loved his pizzas. Thank you for a great week.

We all had a great time staying at Ca’ di Bracco and found it very well designed, organised and supplied. Martin did a good job of looking after us, particularly as regards to the hot tub which we enjoyed using.

by Marcus on Holiday Villas Tuscany & Umbria

Emma and Martin were the most accommodating and kind to start and throughout our stay. They provided guidance when we got lost (the instructions were good but we were tired) and even came to meet us and help us find our way. The house is beautiful, spacious, and well appointed. Perfect for a small group like ours but could also accommodate large families or multiple families. The grounds are even more impressive than the house with a wonderful pool overlooking the hills and local valley. Take note of the herbs around the grounds for when you get in the kitchen. Martin was especially gracious and provided a great wine tour at the local vineyard followed by a wine tasting dinner-well worth the reservation. We would highly recommend a stay with Emma and Martin in Umbertide.

This was our third stay at Ca di Bracco, we all had a wonderful family occasion with the kids thoroughly enjoying the pool.

Beautiful Place

We had an absolutely wonderful time at your place! I can't express enough what a well-kept and beautiful place it is! It was so relaxing for us after a hectic 3 days in Rome to sit by the pool and just hang out as a family! The bedrooms were just wonderful! Everyone was so comfortable. We really felt rich staying there!! (ha, ha!)

I will recommend your place if any friends decide to take a trip to Umbria and I hope we can go back some day!
