Great Italian Experience
Traveling as a group of four, with two couples, we had the best time with Carlo and Julie hosting us at the Olive House at Casa Vialba. Since we don't speak Italian, we really appreciated Carlo's fluency in both English and Italian. Similarly, his integration into the local community and culture allowed him to setup great Italian experiences for us ranging from cooking classes right in Olive House, wild boar hunting with the local hunt club (who were also very friendly and accommodating) horse back riding, truffle hunting, olive oil tour, wine tour, and more. Carlo and Julie even hosted us within their home with great food, wine and conversation. We felt very comfortable there and found our hosts very attentive to all our needs and requests. We had a great time and with Carlo and Julie the very best.
Fantastic location, Beautiful Villa, and Fabulous Hosts
My Wife and two of our friends booked the Olive House this October, we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed our stay in Italy. Or trip was made memorable by the effort and hospitality Carlo and his wife Julie went to to ensure we had everything we needed. In particular Carlo went out of his way to help us with all of the activities we wanted to do in Italy, including Boar Hunting, Truffle Hunting, Cookery Courses, Vineyard visits and more. All of the bedrooms in Olive house were identically equipped so no couple felt shortchanged with a substandard room. The Interior of Olive house was very high quality and we really enjoyed the open fire in the evenings.

A Fabulous Holiday!
We stayed at Casa Vialba in Olive House in July 2009 for a family holiday and I loved it so much that I cried when we had to go home.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay relaxing by the pool or visiting local towns for the markets. Nearby Umbertide and Citta di Castello have brilliant markets and there are some fabulous restaurants in Montone.
Olive house was inviting and spacious and has all the home comforts you could need. Carlo and Julie the owners were excellents hosts, attentive and on hand to answer any questions and provide information on the best places to visit and eat out, but discreet when all you wanted to do was laze by the pools. I enjoyed spending time with the horses and one of the highlights of my stay were the evening horse rides with Julie over the hills taking in amazing scenery and breathtaking views.
In all, the best holiday I have ever had and would throughly recommend to anyone

The ideal break to get away from it all
I don't normally write reviews but this was such a great break I thought it deserved the effort as it was such a treat!
To set the scene, if you're looking to get away from it all and take time to relax in a tranquil environment, this holiday is for you. We stayed in the Olive house at Casa Vialba. It's set in the middle of the the Italian countryside with nothing around to distract you - just the sound of the swimming pool water and not a lot else. Absolute paradise when you need a break from the stress.
When we arrived we found everyone working there really helpful and extremely friendly. They're are English owners who've lived it Italy many years so spoken English and Italian is fluent, We found them very discrete so you got everything you needed but they were in no way intrusive, so it felt that you had the place to yourself. The kitchen in the villa was fully stocked as if it was your own house, with everything from English Tea to good Italian wine. A large beautiful dining room and lounge with 2 large well furnished bedrooms. There was also an open fire there so I guess it's also equipped form winter breaks? The Olive House where we stayed is a restored old Italian stone house with all the luxuries you'd want, from a jacuzzi on both floors to sky TV (like you really want to stay in and watch TV!... actually I did once ;-) ). We went with our 3 daughters, aged between 2 and 7 years old. For them it was child heaven from the swimming pools to looking at and petting the horses that are at Casa Vialba.
I guess to sum up we had one of the best holiday's of our lives. If you're a celeb needing privacy, or a high flyer needing to get away from it all, or if you're Mr & Mrs Ordinary just looking for a luxury holiday in the most beautiful of Italian settings - this holiday is for you!!

We just had to come back!
Having had a wonderful holiday at Casa Vialba in Lavender House last summer, we returned this year to stay in Olive House. One of the most appealing features is that each house has its own private pool, perfect for chilling out in privacy and our daughters were delighted to take advantage of the equestrian facilities. This really is in the green heart of Italy, the countryside is spectacular and there are so many beautiful historic towns close by. In our opinion this ticks all the boxes for us, combining super accommodation and stunning scenery.
A superb stay every time, our 5th trip Summer 2011
We have stayed with Carlo and Julie over 4 -5 years and each time we have had a fantastic experience ! The accomodation and service are exceptional and our 13yr old and 7yr old love going back! We could not recommend a trip to Vialba highly enough and cannot wait to go back!
