We found Casale San Bartolomeo through “Owners Direct” and then checked it out further on “Trip Advisor”. Communications with Gabriele were prompt and made very easy by his fluency in many languages, including English. Traveling with another couple for two weeks in the Umbria area, we all wanted a quiet retreat to return to each day and this casale worked out perfectly with its refreshing pool and comfortable lounge and bedroom areas welcoming us. Over the course of our stay, Gabriele prepared four delicious dinners for us, using fresh local ingredients, including wine with each meal – a great deal at 20 Euros pp. We were introduced to truffles and wild boar and were pleasantly surprised by their flavour. The tables were laid beautifully for breakfasts and dinners and it was wonderful to be there in September to be able to dine alfresco on the covered patio. A number of times we shopped locally and brought back picnics to eat by the pool and Anna or Gabriele would run out with napkins and placemats to make it feel quite elegant. When asked, they also helped us with our daily planning, suggesting routes, sights to see, and places to eat. They were very generous with their time, despite the fact that they are raising two sweet little girls, Giulia and Giorgia. Gabriele is originally from Rome and Anna from Florence, so they were particularly helpful for our visits to these large cities. They were always there to see us off or welcome us home, but respected our privacy as well. We would not hesitate to recommend Casale San Bartolomeo.
