“The nearest thing to heaven here on earth”
Reviewed 23 February 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 22 February 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 22 February 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 22 February 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.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in November 2013

I travelled via the Brennerpass from Austria to Villa Santa Caterina. The trip itself was already impressing and the warm-welcome of the Manager and the owner was wonderful. The weather was nice and sunny, eventhough it was alreaedy November. The property is just stunning and the houses were donne with heart& Soul. No interior-designer could have done a better Job. The view is magnificant and i loved every Minute there. The topographical Location is excellent for trips in Umbria &Tuscany. I wish them allways a full-house and lots of tourists , who would get soooo much out of this countryside and that Villa Santa Caterina. I can honestly suggest this Villa, just like the famous Austrian Action-Star in Hollywood Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger would say: " I´ll be back" !

“It Wasn't Just A Dream...!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Words cannot describe what a gorgeous place this is. I love everything about it, from the stunning views to the high-end finishes and furnishings. It's perfect for relaxing, entertaining, and essentially fulfilling the dream of staying in a true Italian villa. (And a big bonus if you like to cook -- the kitchen is amazing and there is also an outdoor pizza oven!) Every time I turned a corner or looked out a window, I saw a new view. It is truly breathtaking and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.

Also, I'd like to add that these photos do not lie: This villa is not for the weak of heart -- it is a BEAUTIFUL place, with warm, luxurious furnishings, gorgeous outdoor dining/relaxation space, and an immaculate pool. It is also a good location if you want to anchor here and explore the area (but frankly, I was so relaxed in the house that I did not want to leave).

I can't wait to go back for an extended holiday here! I have truly wonderful memories and am so glad that we stayed at Villa Santa Caterina.

“Just great”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 for a stay in April 2013

After many visits, we still love every part of the place. The views are breathtaking; the surroundings are beautiful. Umbria itself is way better then Tuscany and far more orginal.
If you love the nature and great small original italian town's; don't hesitate and book your trip to Santa Catarina.
We will definately be back.
