We stayed in the hotel for 2,5 weeks and experienced it as the most hospitable hotels we've stayed so far.
The owners of the Agriturismo (Isabella and Massimo) will do everything they can to ensure their guests a happy stay. Now I hear you thinking: give me an example so here we go. The'll have a friendly chat with you whenever they can to check if everything is fine. In our case these were simple things like: can the baby please have a thicker mattress, a little fan, go here, reserve that etc. All taken care of.
But also bigger things like our baby unfortunately did not sleep too well because it was a different environment he was used to. They tried to keep all customers happy in a very friendly way by keeping the room next to ours free as much as possible to reduce the contact noise as much as possible in both directions.
Terre di Isa is located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. Therefore many large cities are within a 1,5-hour drive reach like Perugia, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Trevi, Montefalco etc etc. But most importantly 5 minutes drive from the lake. If you like to go to a less touristic feel of Italy and enjoy good food this is one of the best places to have your home base.
HOTEL / APARTMENTS A++
The site is beautiful. A nice swimming pool, a little playground for the kids and some animals walking around. This was great for our little son to play around with and pet the animals (horse, donkey, and especially the little dog). And most importantly: everything was very clean. I've seen many hotels, for sure there was nothing to comment on.
Isabella is a wonderful cook and they prepare some very good dinners on your request. Paying a very low fixed price including wine was a great concept. I can guarantee we tried many good restaurants in the environment to eat and this was the second best place out of the approximately 15 we ate, right in our hotel. On request she also gives cooking workshops which I recommend you take
SURE NO ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT?
Of course there is room for improvement, if not it would be strange, but it is not fair to rate this down. Reason for it is that the owners take all advices very seriously and solve it on the spot and if not later. I am sure Massimo is reading this right now and fix the more difficult advice I've given him. But the tip I have him for example was the wi-fi reception in our room. It was solt as a room with wifi, but they had 2 access points in the hotel and since our room was on the absolute end this was the only room with poor reception so you'd have to sit outside to receive it. But again this is probably fixed while typing this.
TLDR; (Too long didn't read)
For sure the best Agriturismo we've been. Highly recommendable, good food, nice place, good starting base for trips, and the owners will ensure your have the best trip to Italy ever.
