An afternoon of wine tasting at Chiesa Del Carmine is an absolute treat. The drive through the hills is stunning and arriving at the beautiful glass fronted vineria is no less magical. Our smiley hosts, Matteo and Elisa were friendly, super attentive and very knowledgable about the delicious wine. Coupling the white, rose and then the red with the exquisite truffle toasts and perfectly grilled courgettes was heaven. We really didn’t want to leave! We did manage it eventually though... laiden down with boxes of all three wines and jars of truffles in our handbags. What a wonderful experience. We definitely hope to be back. Thank you Matteo, Elisa and David !
I cannot speak for lodging but our wine tasting and local food sampling was wonderful and informative. The wines were luscious and made with obvious dedication and love. The truffle products were all gastronomic delights especially the infused honey and truffle/mushroom salsa. Matteo our host couldn't have been more accommodating. A lovely experience. By appointment.
Our five grandchildren with parents , my husband and i have just returned from a most spoiling week and our second visit to Chiesa Del Carmine. Most delicious cuisine by Alexandra and excellent local wine in this heavenly setting was loved by us all. The backup team absolutely wonderful when our grandson got ill and we had to go to hospital. I also loved the starlit skies late at night. The scents and beauty of the landscape is The Best. We shall be back next year and the year after....
Chiesa Del Carmine exceeded our high expectations. Although the photos are great they don't do it justice. Every part of the villa had a sense of tasteful luxury while maintaining a relaxed, easy atmosphere. Common areas had a feel of solid timeless serenity while the kitchen had everything you need.
All bedrooms had views over the beautifully landscaped gardens/grounds as well as the surronding valley and vineyards.
Management and staff were a pleasure to deal with and will arrange activities or cater dinners if requested.
Ideal for group bookings and I''d recommend Chiesa Del Carmine in complete confidence.
Fifteen friends met in this beautiful location. Everything surpassed our expectations - the property, the renovated church, the bedrooms, the pool, the surrounding areas, etc. The staff were also extremely helpful. They can provide just about anything required - the chef created great meals; conducted cooking classes; when we needed transfers they were arranged; truffle hunting; again the list is endless. We basically had a five star resort just to ourselves. Very spoilt. If you can get some friends together I would truly recommend this holiday experience. It has everything.
We, in conjunction with the team at Chiesa planned our perfect wedding here! What a fabulous villa, with amazing, friendly and attentive staff. The location is absolutely stunning and the villa is maintained to a very high standard. We could not have wished for any more from our week stay here and we would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from the huddle and bussle and enjoy a relaxing week away in a beautiful villa!
We have stayed here many times now and keep going back it is so wonderful in every way imaginable. Peace and tranquility, food and wine, cleanliness and comfort Cheese Del Carmine have it all.
We have cooks coming in every day to prepare and serve breakfast and evening meals which are always exceptional.
We have another week planned for October this year with some of our new guests who will be leaning to paint with artist Alan Reed from Newcastle upon Tyne. The non painting guests will be playing golf at the nearby championship course or coming on trips with us to some beautiful hilltop towns and villages in the region.
