We had a lovely week a lovely week at Casa della Maestra, it's a beautiful house in a quiet location with stunning views. We particularly enjoyed the wine tasting tour with Martin that we finally managed to get to, after many years of invitations!

The house was wonderful. All that we wanted. The location was fantastic. We saw and heard wild boar! If ever you decide to sell, let us know!

Casa della Maestra is a lovely house with great views. We enjoyed it very much. Weather was a bit changeable so we didn't swim other than a couple of days but enjoyed the views and getting to know Umbria.

The house and setting were absolutely idyllic, probably the nicest place we've ever stayed in and the kids really appreciated the large pool. All immaculate and very well maintained by the Gardner and pool people.

Our Stay At Casa della Maestra

We really enjoyed our stay in the house with its incredible views. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too kind with a few rainy and overcast days, so we were unable to use the magnificent pool as much as we would have liked. However, as a hardy, determined individulal I had no intention of returning without a swim. Bracing is probably the best way to describe it and I guess that was due to the property being located at more than 600 metres above sea level. We’re used to a pool as we have one here, but not as splendid as the one at Casa della Maestra. I don’t know what filter system the villa pool has, but it is certainly effective – the water was crystal clear throughout our stay despite the pool remaining uncovered all the time. The welcome pack of bread, prosecco and water was greatly appreciated and the villa handbook was the best and most informative we’ve encountered in decades of rented villa and apartment stays.
