“Fantastic Umbrian accommodation ”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We visited Casa delle Grazie in September 2016 for a week. The accommodation was beautifully maintained with lovely facilities. We have a daughter who was 8 months old when we visited and Aine and Gemma ensured we had a cot, high chair and lots of toys!

The accommodation has wonderful views of the beautiful Umbrian countryside - perfect views across the valley at sunset. The swimming pool is lovely as are the gardens. Very peaceful and relaxing. The chickens were a big hit with our daughter!

The nearby village of Montone (5 minutes walk) is magical. A perfectly preserved Italian hamlet - in the early evenings the village square has a lovely bar where all the locals congregate and chat and play cards. The restaurants in the village are also superb (and very baby friendly). The village is well served by little shops with delicious local cheeses, meat, truffles and wine.

The houses are about half an hour drive from Perugia airport (you can fly from Stansted with Ryanair). It is also extremely well situated to visit towns in the area, such as Assisi, Siena, Gubbio and Arezzo (where the film Life is Beautiful was filmed). Gubbio and its market (on Tuesday mornings) was wonderful. Another stunningly beautiful town.

We were made to feel very welcome by Aine and Gemma. There was a lovely welcome pack and they looked after us very well.

We will in all likelihood come back soon - we cannot recommend Casa delle Grazie enough!

“Excellent”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

In June of this year we had a family holiday here. We came from Australia, my sister and her family from Northern Ireland, my partners brother and sister in law from London and my parents from Scotland. Aine was amazingly helpful for the months leading up to our holiday helping us with itineraries, directions and so forth.
When we arrived we were warmly welcomed, shown around and and encouraged to ask for anything that we might need!
Aine and Gemma helped us to get a local lady, Daniella, to come to the property to teach us to make pasta. A brilliant experience for all, especially the kids because they could be hands on. Gemma was there to assist with translation, which was great as we all had a laugh together with no serious language barrier. We had a lovely evening at a winery nearby. Multi course meal with wines to match. Aine had recommended this. We also had another fabulous evening when she had suggested we get one of the local farmers to do a roast pig for us. A great evening spent eating amazing pork and lovely local wine. Then thanks to the amazing timing, it was off up to the village to watch Italy v Ireland in the Euro football, watching on the big screen in the piazza! An amazing village with warm and friendly locals and expats. A great night had by all!
The restaurants are amazing, with great views and wonderfully friendly service.
The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and very nice just to relax in with the stunning views and sensational sunsets! A lovely pool to relax next to and so many other wonderful places to visit a short drive away if you feel the urge! We couldn't recommend staying here highly enough and we have all agreed that we will be back!

“Heaven in Umbria”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I'm just back from a lovely stay in Casa Delle Grazie. We had 2 small children with us, and we stayed in La Stalla, which is a large two bedroomed cottage. I cannot fault the property. Aine has done a fantastic job and is the perfect host. The villa is only a short walk to Montone, (approx 5 mins), where there a number of quality restaurants and ice cream shop in the piazza for the kids. If you want the comfort and space of a place in the country but with the added appeal of a short walk to restaurants, Casa Delle Grazie is the perfect place. We will be back.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just had a really wonderful week staying at Casa Delle Grazie in the La Toretta apartment. We stayed from the 25th of June to the 2nd of Julys and the weather was amazing - really hot!

We flew into Rome where we hired a car and drove around 2 1/2 hours to Montone. Getting out of Rome was quite difficult and maps and road signs did't help! Even with Aine's helpful directions we still managed to take a wrong turn early on, so were very grateful to have sat nav.

Casa Delle Grazie is just outside Montone. Up fairly high with beautiful views over unspoilt valleys.

The apartment was just right, and didn't get too hot during the day. It is beautiful, spacious and simple inside, with lovely tiled floors and beamed ceilings, a gorgeous bedroom and luxury bathroom. It had everything we needed.

Montone is built on top of a hill, and it is a short gentle walk up a shaded road, or an even shorter walk up a steep short cut through woods. Being on a hill there is quite a lot of climbing to do around Montone!

The town is just amazing. It is small but perfect. And as a fellow guest said - it is pristine! There are several delicious restaurants to choose from, some simple shops such as a post office, bakery and small supermarket, plus a bar and cafe right in the centre. The town is a maze of twisty lanes covered in flowers, with beautiful views. It is not spoilt by tourism and feels wonderfully stuck in time!

Staying close to home offers a wonderful relaxing day. The pool is perfect to cool off after some exploring, and already a nice temperature at this time of year. And such lovely views around the pool! There are some tracks leading from the house up over the hills or down into the valley which are lovely for walks before it gets too hot. We spent many happy hours wondering into Montone for a morning cappuccino, afternoon beer or delicious dinner. With the town so close it is a real luxury that we do not have to drive anywhere to eat. Allowing us to wander slowly home in the warm evening after a few drinks, looking out for fireflies.

During our stay Montone had something on nearly every evening, including a Romance Festival and several concerts in the main square. The friendly atmosphere is addictive.

On other days, Montone was the perfect place to explore nearby Umbria and Tuscany by car. Beautiful towns such as Cortona, Gubbio, Spello and the wonderful Assisi are around 45 minutes away. We even managed a trip to Florence which took around 2 1/2 hours with a combination of driving then catching public transport.

Aine is the perfect hostess. So friendly and welcoming, and always there for help. She told us everything we needed to know to get around locally. Case Delle Grazie was quiet and relaxing but also offered a friendly sociable atmosphere.

We fell in love with Montone and Umbria and can't wait to come back!
Thank you so much Aine and Gemma!

“Fantastic, magical place!”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Casa della Grazie is simply the most wonderful place to stay. There are many things I could comment on - the lovely apartment (we stayed in La Stalla) - beautifully designed, spacious and well-equipped. Or maybe the gorgeous pool with views across Umbria. The location too is perfect - we really wanted to be able to walk out for restaurants in the evening and not have to drive. The pretty town of Montone is only footsteps away and surely one of the most picturesque places in the area. Our kids (ages 4 and 6) loved playing in the square here whilst we finished a meal or enjoyed an Aperol Spritz or two. There's lots to do in the area too when you tire of relaxing by the pool - Assisi, in particular, is an amazing place to go as are the waterfalls. However, what really makes this place quite so special are Aine, Fabio, James and Elisabetta (and Gemma!). They really are wonderful hosts - friendly, go out of their way to help with any enquiries you may have and make you feel like part of a family, not just guests. Many a time I 'lost' a child only to find him holed up with James building Lego together like old friends. In fact my eldest cried buckets in the car when we had to leave his new friends behind and I think the rest of us felt the same. Truly magical - all future holidays now have an awful lot to live up to. As we like to explore different areas I can only maybe Aine and Fabio will open up some other properties too??!!!

“Wonderful Stay, great accomodation and beautiful town, restaurants”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a fantastic week at Casa Delle Grazie. Accomodation is great and Gemma looked after us really well, nothing being too much trouble. Montone is a wonderful town with superb views; a selection of very good restaurants and a wondeful little cafe in the square - the hub of the town and served lovely coffee and ice cream - and all this a 5 minute walk from the house. Everything you need you can get in the town with a butcher, baker and a small shop. Montone is great base for exploring the umbrian countryside and the locals were some of the friendliest people we have ever met.

“Fantastic stay with great hosts and delightful town and restaurants in walking distance.”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a brilliant one week stay. The accommodation comprises three separate self catered units. The units were spacious and clean. The pool area is excellent. The entire property is blessed with views of Montone (a walled hilltop town) and the Umbrian countryside. Aine and Fabio are great hosts.

Montone is five minutes uphill walk and has several very good quality restaurants and is nice to explore. Whilst we were visiting Montone hosted the Umbria film festival and there was also an orchestra playing the central piazza.

There are numerous sites to visit within 90 minutes drive.

Overall a fantastic place to visit.
