“Perfect”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Nestled in the Umbrian hills Montali is a haven. Here Alberto and Malu have created a sylvan retreat where the perfect views, the peaceful pool and the warmth and hospitality of the patrons create the perfect place to unwind. Charming, rustic rooms are deep within an olive grove and you awake only to the sound of birdsong and gentle rustle of leaves. The vegetarian cuisine is par excellence; Malu, the chef, puts her heart and soul into creating dishes of astonishing flavours and combinations and you certainly don't have to be a vegetarian to appreciate the exquisite food presented with immense flair. This is an informal and relaxing place with a general air of bonhomie and the convivial pre prandial drinks are great fun with the likeable and knowledgeable Alberto dispensing good cheer and chilled Prosecco. This is a place to nourish both body and soul.

We had been excited about this visit for ages. Our first impressions were great - given a glass of wine on arrival. We were blown away by the quality of our accommodation and the pool area was beautiful. However the highlight was the restaurant - in particular the warmth and personal attention to which service by the owner is excellent. Amongst some of the best food we've had

Since our first visit to Country House Montali last week, we have talked of little else and I have thought a lot about what to write about our three night stay. Honestly, it is impossible to pick out one single thing or even list what is so wonderful and special here - it would be such a long list and would never convey the essence of Montali. We experienced, peace, beauty, warmth, passion, rest, delight, friendship, joy, fun and the best vegetarian food in the World! We felt nurtured in mind, body and spirit and that is all down to the magic that Alberto, Malu and all the staff create. Thank you all so much. We will be back next year - that's a promise.

What an amazing journey! Arriving at Montali was like coming to Fantasy Island, ever charming Alberto greeted us at our car and the spell was cast. The location is pristine and a all the best Italy can offer. Panoramic vistas above the Lake peppered with flowers and the smells coming from Malu's kitchen worker hypnotic. The dining was gourmet and despite crisp white linens it was ever laid back and non hurried. We did stay the night, however next visit to Umbria this is a must.

Vegetarian's Dream Team. Alberto Musacchio and Malu Simoes. Their dream was to create not just a gourmet paradise but a peaceful retreat where the guests could get away from the stresses of daily life and enjoy the calm, rustic atmosphere of a genteel country home, with solicitous service, comfortable rooms and a view of the surrounding hills and Lake Trasimeno below, which lifts the heart every time you look out the window.
We booked 4 nights at Montali through the Internet. We felt that any place that people return to has got to be worth looking into.

In a country like Italy where every restaurant & cafe has Pizza, Pasta & Gelato a place like Country House Montali is a gem. Don't think that you are going to get healthy eating here that you won't but you will enjoy creativity, variety, presentation and of course awesome flavors. The food is just really good and expertly presented. Nice wine list too. Breakfast consists of pretty much the same thing as every other hotel but it is done with flair and of course veggie. Your hosts Alberto & Malu make sure you have an excellent experience. Alberto acting as the hotelier & front of the house for meals does an excellent job and he is quite a character. Malu and her staff bring you all of the wonderful food. The hotel itself is quite nice and seemed like it has been recently updated. Room was clean, everything worked well and being in the mountains makes for wonderful cool nights and breathtaking views. Very nice pool also. It is a little off the beaten path so most of the day trips you will take need an hour plus for to get to but knowing what you are coming home to in the evening (dinner) makes up for it. Enjoy Country House Montali.
