“Phenomenal villa set in the most picturesque area.”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The villa is truly amazing. I have visited 3 times and booked again. The relaxation you get is beyond compare. The pool is truly wonderful. I have 2 children who hate the sun, they are in the pool all day. The villages around the villa offer a true insight into Italian life. The food we ate was truly amazing. You do need a car when staying here, but the driving is quiet and easy. Franco and Auske are always available to answer any questions you may have. The hot tub, steam room and rejuvenating mint shower make you feel like you are in a luxury spa. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. A true Italian gem.

“As close to heaven as you'll get on earth!”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

In 2016, I was chatting to a friend who had returned from two weeks at Colle dell Asinello with his family. "What was it like?" I said. He is an opera singer who has stayed in great places around the world. His reply: "Best holiday I've ever had..." With that recommendation, I booked for our family. The villa will sleep up to 14 (with couples sharing the double bedrooms) and kids on singles etc but we were just 5. My thoughts? It was the best holiday I've ever had. To say the villa and views are stunning is an understatement. It is just beautiful in every respect. A place you can relax so deeply that whatever you need to leave behind, you'll leave behind. The attention to detail in every part of the villa (that owner Franco took 7 painstaking years to restore) is wonderful. The grounds are stunning. The pool and jacuzzi and steam room and aromatherapy shower etc etc are all as decadent as you could wish. It is not crammed full of gadgets or gimmicks... just simple artistic and natural beauty. Every night we would go to stroke the donkeys and deer who live in a little area at the bottom of the garden. I would swing in the hammock in the dappled shade and read. My wife would sit on the beautiful stone terrace and paint. The kids would play on the swings and in the pool. ... At night we would wander outside via the wooden bridge to our bedroom (and own jacuzzi) and lie down and look at the stars. Each morning, we would rise early, make coffee, sit outside and say to each other 'look at that view'. It is a place to which we will return when we need to relax and treat our spirits to therapy of the most fulfilling kind. Franco could not be a more helpful host. This is his creation and his love shines through every stone. Two tips: 1) hire a car capable of driving on rocky 'white road'... the last 200 yards are not for a low slung sports car. Note, this is fine because it is the seclusion that is part of the beauty and for many properties in the area, that means 'off road' for the last bit of the journey 2) If you are taller than 1m93cm then remember that these villas were not built for basketball players! These are tips not criticisms. This is a wonderful place, pure and simple!

“Sublime!”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We are a family of nine and three different generations. We all loved our stay in this beautiful villa. The love and care that has gone into the decorations and amenities is evident from the moment you walk in. The setting is simply sublime..that is, once you find it! Franco kindly met us in Guardea, the small town near the villa and led us to it. We used and loved the pool each day after long fascinating days of exploring the hill towns hear the villa. I loved that our family would sit in the spa at night and have in the quiet and have personal conversations that just don't happen in our normal routines. We had two cooks most nights - an estravagance, but after traveling all day, and given that the roads are dififcult to travel, I am glad we made that decision. And the food! Outstanding! Each night was a surprise and a delight! We would definitely visit again should we decide to return to Umbria!

“Italian Villa Extraordinaire”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Magnificent, beautiful, peaceful, and packed with all the luxury you would want. This villa is truly amazing! The owners that met us on the first day were very helpful and arranged for our special requests. The 8 of us stayed for 6 nights and it was perfect. I highly recommend you request some on-site cooking by one of the owners friends. They served us a home made Italian meal that was as authentic as you can imagine.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 11 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

The Colle dell'Asinello is a luxury villa recently opened to the public hidden away in the Umbrian countryside, surrounded by 10 hectares of land with deer, sheep, and of course mules. Immediately surrounding the house is a lawn and garden with lounges and a deck for enjoying the sun and eating outside. There are swings in the back, and a hammock. The house is situated on a hill with a gorgeous view of Lake Alviano and the surrounding hills.

Inside the house is a heated salt water pool and jacuzzi, a turkish bath and shower. The pool area is enclosed by a series of glass panel doors which can be opened in the summer time or kept closed in the winter time to keep the pool area warm.

The house itself is decorated with a combination of stone and wood. There is a huge stone archway in the main living room that really gives the room a grandiose sense of space. Pictures do not do it justice.

The 5 bed rooms are all immaculately decorated, each one dedicated to a different animal. The house is chock full of wood carvings of animals done by a local artisan, including room and cabinet door panels. The attention to detail can only be appreciated by staying in the house. As every day you discover something new.

Not enough can be said about how beautiful this house is. It is, in a certain sense, like a dream house - because it is so carefully crafted and elegant and classy. And yet, despite, it is functional and comfortable and warm.

In addition, Franco and Aukse, are so kind and attentive. They patiently showed us around while the various different members of our group showed up. And they checked in with us (by SMS) regularly to make sure everything was OK. They were the perfect hosts.

Last but not least, for those who would a like a little help in the kitchen Graziella did a great job for us both with the cooking and with cleaning up after dinner.

All in all our stay was fantastic and worth every penny.

The resort is simply amazing. The owners are so kind and precise. Every detail matters to them. This resort is a full package. The pool and the spa are one of a kind. The place is so beautiful, cozy, warm. If you are happy with simply the best, this is the place you want to go for an unforgettable vacation or getaway.
