Great potential but lacking in some ways

  • 4 de 5

The good: The villa is in a spectacular location, overlooking fields, hills, and picturesque buildings in the area. It is an easy ride from many hilltop towns in the area, there are good nearby restaurants, and the pool is located on a hill behind the house with an amazing view.

The house itself is on the grand scale. The bedrooms are generous, and the bathrooms are large and modern.

The not so good: We all had the impression that this place is not rented often, since it lacks some key "basics." It is sparsely furnished. For example, there aren't enough comfortable chairs in the seating area to accommodate everyone. The kitchen was not easy to use: There were no instructions on how to use a somewhat complicated oven, and both coffee makers did not work. The owners did not provide soap for the dishwasher, clothes washer, or for dishes. Plus, we would have appreciated having instructions in English for using the washer and dryer--many rentals provide those these days.

We had a major problem with bees in the tobacco tower; we were attacked by a large swarm when we first entered it. While the agent had someone deal with them, we never felt safe staying there. When we returned home after our stay and asked the owner to consider a partial refund, we never heard back from her.

Conclusion: For this place to achieve its potential, the owners need to pay attention to some details to make this place more inviting. Plus, the issue of the unresolved reimbursement has left a bad taste in our mouths.

However, staying here helped us enjoy the beauties of Umbria, and it was a great base for our stay in that region.

Resposta do proprietário: Thank you for your review - we are grateful to you for taking the time to give us such useful feedback. The villa is let each year for a large part of the Summer, and has been for almost a decade. You were the first guests this year, which might explain why everything did not go quite as smoothly as it should have done. To answer your points in turn: - coffee machines: thank you for telling us. We are getting these sorted today. We wish you had told us or Francesca that you were having trouble with them at the time - Francesca could have arranged for them to be fixed or replaced; - instructions for the washing machine and oven: it's a fair point (though we've not been asked for them before). We will do instructions to make sure future guests are entirely comfortable using them; - soap for the dishwasher and washing machine: our standard practice is that we leave tablets for the first washes in both. As the house is let self-catered, we don't leave a supply for the whole week; - chairs: the problem with having a house for 10-12 with numerous sitting rooms and places to sit is that not all the sitting rooms and places to sit can accommodate all the guests. But the gazebo and the dining room can. So far, this has always worked well for our guests - we will look now at whether we need more; - bees in the Tobacco Tower: unfortunately, having bees get into a property is a hazard of houses in the Italian countryside. As you say, as soon as the problem became apparent Francesca got a pest control person to come and take them away. I'm sorry you didn't feel comfortable using the Tobacco Tower after that - again, had you told us at the time we could have opened up the Artist's House for you instead. But you should have had an answer to your request for a reimbursement - this was our inefficiency. We are pleased you found the house a great base from which to explore Umbria, and had a good holiday. And that you enjoyed the view and the pool. Again, I'm grateful for the feedback on the things you were less delighted with. Matthew

My husband and I stayed at Casa Castalda in March 2010 for our honeymoon and it couldn't have been a more romantic setting with it's breathtaking views and open fires. The house is recently converted to an incredibly high standard and the owners really have thought of every little detail. The kitchen is so well stocked. The grounds have been landscaped and must be stunning in the summer. There is a very impressive infinity pool that obviously we couldn't use being March, but it must be wonderful in the sunshine. There is lots to do in the area and plenty of delicious restaurants. We will definitely be returning to Casa Castalda!

Casa Castalda: the beauty of Umbria at its best

  • 5 de 5

This is an amazing house, located in a beautiful Umbrian valley. It's spacious and very comfortable, with some lovely terraces affording views of the surrounding countryside. There are some great walks to be had in the vicinity and some of the spectacular local hill-towns are within easy reach (eg. Cortona). Fabulous local restaurants where you'll be guaranteed a friendly welcome. All in all you'll be assured a relaxing and inspiring holiday. And I haven't even mentioned the house's most prized asset: its stupendous infinity pool...

Great place

  • 5 de 5

It's a really huge house, the bedrooms by no means crammed together, lots of space downstairs. Incredibly beautiful pool with views over some amazing countryside. Very nicely converted, it looks recently done. Plenty of parking. Some great restaurants nearby, and country walks.
