Fantastic property and such lovely hosts. Very relaxing. Accommodation is very well appointed, and great places to find olive oil, pasta, wine, coffee, etc are all nearby. A little gem!
We stayed in "Il Cipresso" at Pianciano last spring. The location, house, and hospitality were amazing. Our biggest regret is that we only stayed 3 nights - not at all long enough to enjoy the area Pianciano. Francesco and Claudia, as well as everyone else there, were so welcoming and gracious. They even helped us get our luggage back to Rome when we had a misunderstanding with our car rental (apparently a "full-size van" is not quite the same in Italy as the US!). We had four adults and three children (ages 4, 10, and 12) and all agreed unanimously that this was our favorite stop on our trip. It's a great place for kids and my youngest loved the daily visits from the resident dogs. The pizzas prepared in the stone pizza oven by a chef was one of the many favorites of our stay. The house had everything we needed and more - a well-stocked kitchen, washing machine, comfortable beds, firewood since the nights were chilly and gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. Spoleto and Assisi were easily accessible by car from Pianciano and beautiful towns to visit. We managed to get the olive oil and honey made at Pianciano safely home and we savored it as long as possible. Instead of planning which new place we will travel to next, we have all decided that we would rather go back to Pianciano and stay for longer - or forever!
We just spent 2 weeks at Pianciano, near Spoleto in Umbria and had an amazing time. As a family with 2 x 11 year old boys and a 4 year old girl, Casa dell'arco was perfect - having more than enough space to accommodate us all, and being both tastefully decorated and well equipped. Claudia and Francesco, who own the estate, could not have been more welcoming and assisted us in any way they could. The grounds are truly breath-taking, and if you are looking for a peaceful retreat, with luxurious surroundings, close to Umbria's most popular towns and cities, this is perfect location. I can't wait to come back, and have already been recommending to our friends and family.
This is a well kept secret this was one of the most beautiful place you could stay, and if you do stay be sure to have Gabrielle cook for you what a wonderful cook, and a beautiful person you will not regret it, I tried to take her home with me but she didn't have a passport. The owner was very gracious and was a great historian what can I say except perfect in every way, you will not regret your stay here, somewhat secluded but easy drives to anywhere you care to go.
After a few weeks camping in the Marche, we - a family with 4 children in the age of 13, 14, 14 and 17, had a great time at Pianciano in Casa della Rocca. The location is wonderful. Highlights during our stay: the home-made pasta when we arrived, relaxing at the pool, Umbrian cooking lesson with Gabrielle (with truffles and meat from the estate), the pizza-evening, the amazing view,... And the great hospitality of Fransesco and Claudia! Not only their service at Pianciano was great, but also their help with our carproblem. For the hole week we could borrow the jeep of Fransesco. And the last few days of our stay we had a pleasant time in their house. So we could fortunately still explore the beautiful surroudings of Spoleto: Monti Sibillini, Perugia, visite the winery in Montefalco,...
Pianciano is a beautiful place to visit again!
Consider yourself fortunate if you can get to visit Pianciano. So comforting upon arrival with welcome meal waiting.. Grounds are beautiful, so very peaceful and quiet. Accomodations are plentiful. You are on your own, yet a phone call away from assistance. Claudia is wonderful to confirm your arrangements prior to arrival. Francesco is charming and full of history. If you are fortunate to visit the castle, a wonderful treasure for memory, breathe it all in. If you have a car even better, we managed without and were fine. Visiting Spoleto, Spello and the must see Assisi.. We love this place and hoping to return. Another thanks to the staff on hand as said everyone was so helpful. Also try the restaurant down the road from Pianciano or a cooking class both were great..
