We can so totally subscribe to the review of "Anything2" who left a "poor" rating on this site. We were travelling with our one year old baby and really looked forward to our stay. Tempted by the beautiful foto's on the website and the promise of relaxation, beauty and a peacefull environment, we had booked one of the cottages for a week. So looking forward to spending time at the pool and having dinner in the evening either at the restaurant with the baby sleeping at the house, using the baby-intercom, or at our own cottage with a simple pasta. However, we feel cheated.

We arrived at 3 in the afternoon. Our cottage was still being cleaned, so we had to wait. As our baby really needed to sleep, we very much appreciated the offer to let our baby stay in the Superior room #4. However, we were so glad we did not book such a room. It was fine to let a baby sleep in for one hour, but that was about it. No airconditioning, the room was very very small, with a really outdated bathroom and dito furniture.

In the meanwhile, we had a drink at the "pool bar", which was nothing more than a bar under a shelter with 3 chairs. The staff at the bar was very unfriendly. Sitting at the pool wasn't an option either. There were little beds and there was no shade. The pool and its surroundings were shabby.

After 5pm our cottage was ready. One of the staff members accompanied us to the cottage. When walking uphill he cheerfullly told us that there was a serious wasps' plague, so that sitting in the garden of the cottage would not be an option, especially not with a one year old. The cottage itslef was spacious, however dirty and without airconditioning, while we were to spend most of our time inside the house because of the wasps.

We took a look around and decided to file our complaints with the staff. They told us that the website does mention that there is no airconditioning in the cottage, which is true but you will only see that after 50 clicks or so. Furthermore they did not want to do anything about the wasps (cleaning the gutters and spraying poison). The owner of the place did come to see the cottage for himself, but he found everything in typical Umbrian style and that was it. Typical Umbrian apparantly means dirty kitchens and dirty home, poor garden furniture, broken curtains and no airconditioning. We decided to try to book something else for the week and then discovered that the promised wifi connection in the cottage was not working. We finally booked something else using the wifi at the reception office and left without staying the night. Fattoria di Vibio in real life is exactly the opposite of what you expect it to be after seeing their website.

We stayed in a cottage, podere delle ginestr, and it was totally not clean! We found in the oven an old pizza with all sorts of "vegetables" on it! Also there were not enough dishes and glasses etc. The staff reacted not so interested; di not evn ask how everyhing was after the pizza-incident. It was a very expensive cottage (2100 euro/week) and it is a shame! We will never go back,mainfully because the staff did not take us and our complaints serious!

Me and my boyfriend stopped by at this amazing place in between the green hills during our vacation all around Italy. Amazing service, delicious food, nice people and so much relax!!! The SPA definitely helped us to enjoy our time there even more. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to relax and really enjoy nature and country style. Thank you so much to the nice people there!!!

We were really looking forward to this leg of our journey around Umbria. A relaxing spa - which had views over the hills in a wonderfully modern granite and glass setting; food sourced locally and cooked with flair with a good selection of wines at reasonable prices; Beautiful countryside to get away from it all. Maybe throw in a cookery class...The Superior room we booked (number 4) was such a let down. I'm all for basic and minimal but this was just unloved and outdated. With the worst 80's rusty bathroom I have seen. Unfortunately the other rooms were all booked that night due to a conference of 30 other Italians so we couldn't be moved. This large group unwittingly spoiled our dreams of an escape to tranquility and the atttention of the staff was lavished upon them. We left the next day and had to pay 70% of the cancellation, reduced to 50%, but we found the Relais of Todini which was far superior instead!
