“Amazing place in true Umbria”
Reviewed July 22, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Had an amazing vacation with my family at Villa Pianesante for 2 weeks. Very comfortable, charming house on the top of a hill which offers great views and a constant refreshing breeze. It has a really nice large swimming pool with plenty of sun all day long.
Mario could not have been a better host. Always making sure we had everything we needed and also gave us great recommendations for restaurants, places to visit and things to do around the area. Few highlight are visiting the town of Todi, Civilleta del Lago and Montecchio. It does not matter which direction you go you'll find beautiful scenery and great people.
For the kids we had horseback riding, farms and adventure parks.
A unique experience was having Mario's crew cooking an authentic Italian meal for us... simply amazing.
For food lovers, there is a small shop called Pasta Fresca in Aviglano. This was also recommended by Mario. The shop opens from 8.30 to 12.30 and it is all pasta made that same day. Also several vineyards in the area with great wine. Our favorite was Montefalco but there ae plenty and we just did not have the time to visit them all.
The house and the swimming pool is constantly maintained, cleaned and the staff is very friendly.
This is a vacation to never forget. Big thanks to Mario, Rita and Gopi.

“A Dream Come True”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in August 2014

We had always wanted to spend a week in Umbria and pictured ourselves sitting under the pergola, drinking wine and looking out at the olive groves. Villa Pianesante and our host Mario, made that dream come true. The villa was in excellent condition, very comfortable and convenient to the train. Mario was an amazing host arranging for home cooked authentic Italian meals, treating us to very flavorful local wine and providing input on things to see and restaurants to try. We were able to conveniently travel by train to both Florence and Rome. We found it quite easy to drive to Todi and other surrounding towns.

We had six people, all family and all adults in our group. Accommodations suited us very well. The pool offered an opportunity to relax after a busy day of sightseeing, a bonus feature we did not really think about at the time we booked the villa.

Cannot say enough about how nice Mario was to our family. He truly made us feel welcome and at home.

“The Ultimate Umbrian Getaway!!”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Villa Pianesante is the perfect property for our family and exactly what we were looking for to spend our Umbrian holiday. The spacious rustic style villa with a fantastic size pool and outdoor entertaining area is ideally located on top of a hill overlooking the picturesque town of Morre and Collelungo. We would spend our many nights sitting outdoors watching the sunset over the Umbrian hills. It is very private and peaceful with only the sounds of local church bells, native birds and the neighboring herd of goats. The local people are some of the most beautiful people our family have had the pleasure of meeting, we have been made to feel so welcome. The local produce is by far the best we have tasted during our travels and Mario is the ultimate host as nothing is ever too much trouble. I highly recommend Villa Pianesante and Mario to anyone who is looking to enjoy all that Umbria has to offer.

“Truly the family trip of a lifetime”
Reviewed August 3, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our family stayed at Villa Pianesante earlier this summer and it was truly the trip of a lifetime. We lived very comfortably for a week with six adults and two children at this gorgeous villa and had more than enough room. The setting is absolutely breathtaking overlooking the hills of the Umbrian countryside. We spent our mornings driving to the seemingly endless Italian villages of the area sampling local food and wine and our afternoons and evenings at the villa relaxing, swimming and taking in the picture perfect sunsets.

Mario is a wonderful resource for anyone staying at Villa Pianesante and will help you with whatever you need, whether it's with dining options in the area, scenic drives to pre-Roman towns, or where to find the local cheese monger in Collelungo. He is simply the best.

I would highly recommend Villa Pianesante to anyone looking to have a true Italian experience without having to worry about the hustle and bustle of a major tourist destination. It was easy to get to from the airport in Rome (2 hours drive), but had the privacy that we wanted for an amazingly special family trip. We can't wait to get back, and we will!

“Extraordinary”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2015

We rented Villa Pianesante for a family reunion last summer.
The place is enchanting sitting on top of a hill in the heart of Umbria.
The Villa is beautiful, superbly furnished, spacious and clean.
We have been welcomed by Mario, the owner, who is a true world class professional. He personally waited for our arrival and gave us all sort of valuable informations about the place and its vicinity.
He helped us organize tours, horse back riding walks, dinners and outings. Always available and just a phone call away.
Having travelled in many places all over the world, I can honestly say this as been one of the best vacation I have experienced. One of those that stay with your memory forever....
Grazie Mario

“Incredibly wonderful, unforgettable time in Umbria, Italy!”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was our first time in Italy with family, children and grandchildren, 8 of us in total. We could not have found a more beautiful, serene place to stay for 8 days! Villa Pianesante has gorgeous views of the Umbrian countryside, an enormous pool with a shaded area, 5 bedrooms, each with its own Italian-tiled bathroom, and a terrace with a long, tiled table for outdoor dining, facing the glorious evening sunset. Mario, our most gracious host, went out of his way to make sure every day had something of interest for each member of our family. While the pool was often a big draw for part of the day, Mario took us to a farm with our 10 year old granddaughter, who got to ride a horse, hold a newborn lamb and some tiny kittens, see piglets and meet the farmer's friendly children. He also helped our son and daughter-in-law plan a day in Rome, offered wonderful dinner and historical tour suggestions in ancient neighboring hill towns, and with his staff prepared a fabulous, locally-sourced dinner for my husband's birthday. Another highlight was the cheese-making family house down the road, where we bought cheese and one day, with our wide-eyed granddaughter, watched the husband and wife team finish the process of making fresh mozzarella and ricotta. We'll never forget this magnificent place and hope to return with our family. Many thanks again to Mario and his wonderful staff!
