“Perfect place to relax and see beautiful Umbria”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have really enjoyed our two week stay at the La Cantina cottage.
The cottage had definitely enough space for two people with all amenities there, and a lovely terrace. The pool is big and the water was still just warm enough. The views from the property are amazing. We loved going for a walk with the two dogs Bessie and Cuba, they are real charmers. And many thanks to David and Chrissie for all the good tips about places to see, good restaurants, etc. We really enjoyed the wine tasting with dinner they recommended us. And the home cooked dinner they made for us and which was served by their two girls was delicious. Overall a place to recommend if you like to relax and see a bit of beautiful Umbria.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in Casa San Gabriel end of August-beginning of September. We had Il Fienile, the largest of the cottages and it was just right for two adults and two young boys. Really enjoyed the private front garden and as it was so warm, we had our breakfast and other meals there everyday. Didn't use the table inside once. The big oak tree provides a much needed shade.

In terms of self catering, the cottage has many ingredients left by the previous guests. Some self catering places remove everything and then you have the tedious business of buying salt, pepper, oil, fairy liquid, kitchen towels etc. But luckily here it's not the case. The owners also provide croissants, jams, cereal and milk for your first morning so you don't need to rush to the shops straight away.

Location is great, it's an easy drive to many beautiful hilltop towns, we visited Assisi, Gubbio, Montone and Perugia (twice as we really liked it). The cottages have a very thorough guidebook about the local attractions and I strongly advice to read it as it has invaluable info where to park and where to eat.

I'd say the highlight for our two boys (4 & 7) was the dogs, Cuba and Bessie. My younger one can be very anxious around dogs but he loved these two and never missed the chance to pat and cuddle them. There is a small play area for children too but I'd say this is more suitable for toddlers.

I would have liked a dishwasher in the cottage but I do realise that this might not be feasible to do. Also the mattresses were very hard (orthopaedic) but again it's a matter of preference. The bedlinen and towels were very high quality

Over all Casa San Gabriel is an excellent value and it was lovely to meet Chrissie, David and their two daughters, hope to visit your home one day again.

“Utopian Umbria”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Set in an almost utopian Umbrian setting high amongst green hills dotted with vines, olive trees and oaks, CSG is an oasis of charm and relaxation. The experiences that we appreciated beyond the warm welcome, the pool, the atmosphere and the environment were subtleties such as feeling part of an authentically italian community (with a bit of Aussie and English), where people seem genuinely happy that you are visiting. We loved the local village festival, the fact that you can enjoy the wine and olive oil from the very vines and trees you can see into the unspoilt valley from your window, and the feeling that you could visit in the autumn/winter and there would boar hunts, oil and wine pressings, music and food festivals going on as they always have done. These nuances make the difference between a holiday and an experience. Our children took away so many great memories, of playing with the other children, night-time swims, great mozzarella, great pizzas and BBQ';s, trips to the lake etc. The two dogs, Bessie and Cuba too of course. But the main reason CSG works so well is because of the family who own it and live there, who know how to make you feel welcome and relaxed, who have achieved a lovely balance of only being around when you need them, and who offer a genuinely friendly place where for the duration of your stay you can feel totally at ease with the world.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

An incredible and very special place! We visited with our 15 month old baby and could not have asked for a more perfect stay. Chrissie and David provided everything we needed for our daughter (high chair, baby bath, toys, books) and our cottage (La Stalla) was ideal for a small family, with a separate sleeping area for our baby.

The property itself is a dream, with spectacular valley views, a gorgeous pool and playground. It is close to many lovely Umbrian towns, our favorites being Montone and Spello.

Chrissie and David and their two beautiful daughters (and two very friendly dogs Bessie and Cuba!) are amazing hosts, so very friendly and welcoming. We felt at home in this beautiful part of the world and cannot wait to return one day. Thank you!

“The place to 'chill'!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

It's pretty rare for us to return to the same holiday destination, but after a very busy year, when thinking of where we could go to completely relax for a week, we immediately thought of Casa San Gabriel.
Returning for the second time was no disappointment - the incredible views of the Umbrian hills from our terrace and the pool, and the relaxed, welcoming ambiance was just as we had remembered.
Both times we have stayed in La Stalla. It's the smallest of the cottages, perfect for 2 but has also worked well for us with our now 11 year old daughter, on the basis that the weather has been good and we spend most of the time outside.
This time we had the added pleasure of Chrissie, David and their girls company, and thoroughly enjoyed the pizza night and sampling the very drinkable organic wine from the new vineyard. Having the owners on site gives a real insight into the locality and lots of great advice should you want it, on the many places to visit and local restaurants to try.
Once again we had a great time, came home thoroughly relaxed, and are very likely to return again.

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our family of three young children had a wonderful week recovering from a jet lag at Casa San Gabriel before the peak holiday season this summer. We stayed in the biggest of the three villas, which worked perfectly for our family. The view from the windows and our private outdoor sitting/dining area were breathtakingly beautiful. It was like spending a week in our very own little paradise!

Chrissy and David were the most welcoming and helpful hosts giving us wonderful tips on local restaurants and sights, things to do and places to visit. We headed out to explore the nearby hilltop towns in most mornings, had delicious local produce (oh those truffles) for lunch before returning back to Casa San Gabriel for an afternoon of playing and relaxing by the pool.

Casa San Gabriel is a wonderful place to stay to experience the best of what Umbria can offer!! We warmly recommend this place to everyone, and hope to return there one day!

“A beautiful location with great facilities.”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful holiday at Casa San Gabriel. The setting is absolutely beautiful and the surrounding area is perfect for runs and walks - with the lovely dogs Bessie and Cuba to keep you company. The cottages are compact but very well equipped and have a good degree of privacy. The facilities on offer, from the swimming pool to the playground, meant all the family were happy, and pizza night was a big hit with us all. Casa San Gabriel has all the ingredients for a fabulous holiday.
