“Paradise in Umbria”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

On entering the property you are immediately wooed by the dramatic mountain vistas.
The house is beautifully appointed with outdoor living with a pool, while the interior is decorated with hand-picked artefacts and furnishings. it is like living in a dream.
A must stay if travelling to Umbria. We used the house as a base and did day trips to Perugia, Spello, Florence, Orvietto, Montepuliciano, and Citta Di Costello.
The caretakers, Maha and Viv were very helpful and friendly...even cooked a meal for us.

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2013

My wife and I have stayed at Santa Caterina twice and can't wait to go back. It is hands down the most beautiful and romantic place we have even been, and we can't wait for our third visit. This is no exaggeration. The location on top of a hill overlooking a valley filled with olive groves, as well as a nearby castle perched precariously on a hill, is absolutely stunning. On clear days, the fact that you can see the cathedral at Assisi in the distance only adds to the magic. At night the stars are infinite.

The house itself is gorgeous, and very beautifully decorated. I love to cook, and the kitchen is inviting and cozy. You can spend an afternoon cooking overlooking the valley and flowering lavender all over the property. There is even an outdoor stone BBQ and pizza oven to enjoy (I still have not come even close to mastering the pizza oven....). We spent several afternoons just lying by the beautiful pool, drinking wine and enjoying the view.

The location of the house is also perfect for exploring some of the most beautiful regions of Italy. We took day trips to Assisi, Perugia, Montone and Gubbio, which are all amazing historic towns in Umbria. We also used the house as a base for several forays into Tuscany, to Siena, Florence and Arezzo, all of which are within a 90 minute scenic drive.

Lastly, our trips would not have been nearly as special without the hospitality of Marga and Vic, who take great care of guests and never hesitate to give wonderful local recommendations.

We could not recommend a stay at Santa Caterina more enthusiastically. Once you're there, you will never want to leave. We are already planning our next visit.

“The nearest thing to heaven here on earth”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2012

Its difficult to describe perfection but arriving at Santa Caterina was just that for us.
We were greeted by Marga, the property manager who will do and did do everything to make our stay memorable. She is charming, hospitable and a wealth of information, and she cooked and did marketing and did do everything to make our stay memorable.
The property is simply magnificent, and every attention was paid to creature comforts. The views are so spectacular that iI spent two days alone at the house enjoying listening to italian opera and exploring the gardens, and selecting fresh herbs for our dinner.I cannot wait to go back and would love my entire family and friends to take part in this glorious experience. Santa Caterina is quintessential Italy at its finest .

“The perfect Italian get away”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Amazing property, fabulous house decorated true to local style, swimming pool a nice addition, beautiful views in all directions, loved the huge kitchen & dining area, many patios to enjoy. Location was perfect in terms if proximity to Florence, Rome & also a wide variety of beautiful historic towns with distinct flavors closer by. I would like to add that the care takers who live on the property were incredibly nice & helpful in every way.

“Italian countryside and hospitality at its best”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

We enjoyed the peace and calm of this property which stands alone atop a hill affording picture perfect panoramas and privacy even when skinny dipping in the fabulous pool. The facilities are great capturing old style ambiance with practical appliances and furnishings.
Help with all things including sightseeing suggestions was always available and much appreciated
My family and I will come back here many times and would recommend it to everyone who wants to combine the best Italy has to offers with total relaxation

“Holiday in a Theatre wonderland”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

Highly recommended for a family reunion, a romantic get away, a friendly group get together, or a celebration.
We have booked on a number of occasions and were never disappointed.
Beautifully outfitted, spotlessly clean, with every amenity possible.
We were there for summer and the pool was ideal, beautiful 360 degrees of views.
We walked everyday, travelled into different nearby villages & cities, dinned by the pool, entertained friends. etc
we were received by Marga & Vic. who were most obliging, friendly and very efficient.
