Reviewed 19 July 2010

We had a large group (14 people) with young children. The villa was as promised. It was the perfect reunion spot for our large group. Both the adults and the kids had a wonderful time. Michele (the proprietor) and this family were gratious hosts. Would definitely go back!

We stayed at Podere Caldaruccia La Pineta for 2 weeks in september 2009, and are very satisfied! Having travelled throughout Central Italy the last 5-6 years, and visited several agritourismos, we can truly recommend La Pineta as one of the best!

From day one we were welcomed by the lovely family who runs the place, and they remained helpful and friendly during the whole stay. We were so lucky to get an upgrade at arrival, and enjoyed the lovely and spacious 'Cottage' appartment. We especially enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen that allowed us to prepare many scrumptious meals based on the lovely fresh meats, pastas, oils, wines and vegetables available at the nearby Conad-store. Also, a daily visit to the local bar where you can get the best coffee in town is hereby recommened!

La Pineta is situated on a hilltopp surrounded by pine trees, wineyards and olive grounds. It provides beautiful scenery, all the rest and tranquility in the world, and the opportunity to really slow down. The pool side is a perfect place to relax, read a good book and enjoy a glass of prosecco.

La Pineta is also located nearby many beautiful and famous towns, big and small, and is therefore a perfect base for those who want to combine relaxation with cultural input.
We truly rocommend this place to young and old, and will definately return!

This is definitely a perfect choice to enjoy all the Umbrian treasures. The atmosphere in Podere Calderuccio is friendly and relaxing. Michele is the ideal host. He offered fantastic recommendations for local restaurants. He and his family were always willing to help and made us feel at home.
We stayed in one of the two big appartments which form the house adjacents to the swimming pool. The apartments are indeed very spacious and well equipped and furnished with very good taste.
Some evenings we decided to have dinner in the house by the pool enjoying the sunset and the views from the property.
The location of the property is also great. A few kilometers from the motorway and less than half an hour drive from Assissi/Perugia and Gubbio.
I can only recommend Podere Calderuccio to anyone wishing to spend holidays in Umbria and prefer to avoid conventional hotels.

Our family of 16 had a great 2 weeks at La Pineta. The property is only 20 minutes from central Perugia and an easy drive to such other great towns like Assisi, Florence, Siena, Gubio, Spoletto and Orvieto. It is a hill top property with fantastic views and a security gate all around so we were very safe. We all enjoyed getting sun and playing in the clean pool. The country road out the back of the property was perfect for runs or walks. Be aware that the 2nd bedrooms in the cottage are actually lofts. They slept 3-4 kids comfortably but there is no privacy in the sleeping areas. The bathrooms and kitchens were clean and easy to use. The family that lives on site was very friendly and the husband, Michaele, speaks fluent english.

At the end of may, and the first 2 weeks of june, we had a great holiday in Umbria, Italy. We will never forget arriving on the top of the hill, and entering the domain of "La Pineta". It was like entering in a piece of paradise ! Great views in any direction, beautiful nature, a very nice garden and a swimming pool just a few meters away from our cottage. We had never spend a holiday on such a location.

The cottage we stayed in was very well-equiped (even a yacuzi) and we liked it very much that it was constructed and decorated in a traditional way.
Michele gave us some information about the neighbourhood and restaurants, shops, etc.

About Umbria, I can say that it's really a region to visit. The people are really friendly, food and wine are great en there are some very good restaurants where you can eat well, without paying too much. The towns, villages on the mountain-tops and surely the nature are really beautiful and we made some great rides through the mountains on our bikes.

Michele and his family are very friendly, one day you get some fresh eggs, the other day when you are relaxing at the swimmingpool, they bring you cherries right from the tree. In the morning when you open the door, you are wellcomed by the family-dog 'Skoobie Doo', a very kind Boxer-dog, always in for a game.

So conclusion : if you want to visit this amazing region, this is surely a place I would recommend to stay, and for myself, I hope to go back to ' La Pineta' some day in the future !
