“Excellent in all respects”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Have just returned from spending a fantastic week at Casa San Gabriel. From the warm welcome given to us by Chrissie on arrival to the splendid meal cooked by David one evening assisted by the two girls, everything was perfect. The location was fantastic (right in the heart of the countryside but with towns and villages easily accessible) and the standard of the accommodation was very high (with a very generous food welcome pack). The family's two dogs were a nice addition to the ambience and we enjoyed taking them out on a couple of walks with us. Would certainly consider a return visit, next time with other members of the family.

“Perfect base for an Umbrian adventure”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Travelling through Italy with a friend, we spent three nights at Casa san Gabriel and it was the highlight of our trip. Tucked away amongst rolling hills and vineyards (but not so far it's hard to find), the views down the valley towards Assisi were some of the best we found in Italy.
Chrissie and David are natural hosts - making you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Even their two super-friendly dogs - Bessie and Cuba, chip-in with the hospitality.
Unfortunately we didn't get to use the pool during our stay, as we were too wimpy to go in during a spell of cloudy weather, but I can imagine it would be amazing in the sun.
We loved Umbria as a whole - Orvieto (where Chrissie and David have their grapes made into delicious wine) and Gubbio were particular highlights.
And there's loads to see closer to base too. We never left the house without the brilliant folder they'd put together with restaurant recommendations and guides to the nearby towns.
Make sure you take a walk around the estate - walking through the wild flower meadows, olive groves and vineyards, with views down to the property below, was truly magical.

“Idyllic Umbrian Getaway”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a remarkable weeks stay at Casa San Gabriel and I highly recommend it for a tranquil and relaxing getaway. The accommodations are excellent, we stayed in Il Fienile, and everything you could need has been provided. The beds, linens and furniture are of high quality and the cottages are thoughtfully decorated. Chrissie and David are the perfect hosts…there when you need them to provide you with any tips and information necessary to make your stay and exploring enjoyable.
They have provided a very thorough guidebook about the local attractions and I strongly advise to read it as it has invaluable information on how to get around locally, where to park and where to eat. (David’s recommendation to take the train to Florence was great, thanks!)
As other reviews have stated, the views from all of the cottages and especially from the pool area are gorgeous across the valley and towards Assisi. Don’t miss the starry nights.
The location of Casa San Gabriel is great, it's an easy drive to many local beautiful hill towns; we visited Gubbio, Montone, Assisi, Spello and Speleto. A little further drive to Siena and San Gimignano in Tuscany are worth it.
Our only regret, too much sightseeing and not enough time at Casa San Gabriel! Be sure to take time to relax at CSG. Hikes on the valley trails are invigorating and peaceful. Casa San Gabriel is an excellent value and it was great to meet Chrissie, David and their two daughters Eli and Lucia.

“Best kept secret in Umbria”
Reviewed 6 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

It was a privilege for me to stay at Casa San Gabriel where the facilities and the location was outstanding. The location allowed easy access to all the hill side towns in Umbria, Marche and Tuscany. To visit the weekly market and to explore the awaiting treasures in these towns was a treat. Treasures and attractions to be found included: Piero della Francesca's Masterpieces in Sansepolcro, Donatell's - La Madonna in Citerna, the stunning Frasassi Caves in Genga and the Marmore Water Falls built by the Romans in Terni. With all holidays there are some favourites treats, mine being: the towns of Urbino, Anghiari and Gubbio and being able to return each night to CSG knowing that your comfort is the number one priority of the owners

“Amazing location and perfect cottages”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy. The cottages are in an idyllic spot and have everything you need. There is a real attention to detail and the accommodation is comfortable, clean and super well equipped. Beautiful gardens, pool and walks close by too. The hosts were also incredibly welcoming and helpful. I'd absolutely recommend it.

“Perfect relaxation”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Well we did it again...stayed with Chrissie and David, and the girls again. It is a truly amazing experience, and we will of course come back agai and again. Why? Great hosts, perfect accommodation, amazing views that we just sit and stare at, good help with arranging activities (for us, eating and drinking). And of course, cas San Gabriel is right in the heart of it all; Rome, Florence, Tuscany, Umbria, le marche, and truly stunning hill towns that we all seem to aspire to live in. Not to mention the alpacas, the dogs, and the beautiful bugs walking. Bliss on a stick....

“Simply stunning”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had the most wonderful stay at Casa San Gabriel and cannot recommend it highly enough!! We have travelled from Australia to stay there four times over the last twelve years and each time it just gets more and more beautiful. Our family of 5 (children aged 10, 8 and 3) were very comfortably accommodated in Il Fienile. Chrissie, David and the girls are marvellous hosts and go out of their way to help you discover the best the area has to offer and assist with bookings etc. The furnishings in the accommodations are so tasteful and in keeping with the style of property and you have all the mod cons you could possibly wish for. Having spent time on previous trips venturing to various delightful nearby hilltop towns we contented ourselves on this occasion with some local walks and unwinding in the peaceful surrounds of Casa San Gabriel. This is a great place to stay for families with children who have so much to keep them entertained - from playing with the dogs Cuba and Bessie to the alpacas, the playground, swimming in the gorgeous horizon pool overlooking the valley there are hours of relaxing fun to be had soaking up hose sublime views over the valley before you even think about a venture to the many nearby attractions. We will keep coming back because we are yet to experience a more idyllic setting with such amazing hosts where we can so totally relax.
