“Wow...magnificent!”
Reviewed 7 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We had the privelege of staying in this villa with four other friends. From the moment we stepped in the door and Alex greeted us with wine and appetizers, to the moment we departed, we had a fantastic stay. One other reviewer said they should have a camera capturing the look on guests' faces upon entering the villa, because it really does exceed all expectations. The villa is beautifully and artfully decorated and furnished, leaving nothing to be desired. The large garden offered fresh lettuce, fennil, basil, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers to name just a few things. And imagine our delight when Alex showed us the fully stocked wine cellar and told us this was for guests. The terrace is beautiful and we spent a lot of time there. The view of the castle is pure fantasy and waking up to the town church's bells was lovely. The villa is in a quaint little, medieval town of Torre Alfina where the people were friendly and where we very quickly discovered the best gelato in Italy at Sarchioni's. It was also wonderful to wander down to Sarchioni's in the morning for a delicious capaccino and a roll. We cannot say enough good things about this villa and this wonderful little town. Our only complaint is we were only there for a week!

“Website doesn't do it justice!”
Reviewed 21 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Usually a website presents only the best side of a rental property. In this case, the pictures can't capture all the charm that is Villa del Castello.

From the very momenet we pulled through the gates, we were awestruck. The beauty of the grounds, the looming castle so close it seemed you could touch it, the modernness and cleanliness of the rooms - all made this week the best of our vacation.

It is close enough to several wonderful cities - Orvieto, Florence, Assisi, several hilltowns - that we easily made daytrips out but were back in time to enjoy an evening under the pergula with the complementary bottle(s) of wine.

If you want to cook, the 21st century kitchen begs to be used, but we opted for our evening meals in one of the restaurants in the area, all serving wonderful Tuscan or Umbrian cuisine.

For small group vacations, Villa dell Castello can't be beat. It is definitely on our "Gotta Return" list.
