What Past Guests Are Saying
wunderful view from a perfect house
we very much enjoyed the stay in Panicale: complete interior, village on walking distance [20 minutes], nice garden and pool; but above all the wunderfull view on lake Trasimeno.
Italy has been on our "bucket list" for many years. How wonderful for us that when we finally got around to visiting in June, 2012, we knew that Casa bel Posto would fit our needs exactly. We find great joy in sharing our travel experiences with friends and family, and here in Panicale, we had room to spare. The little girls loved swimming to the huge pool with a superb view of the Lake Trasimeno, and the grown-ups loved sitting out in the late afternoon sun with a glass of wine, looking up toward the beautiful ancient town ( Castiglione del Lago) down the countryside. My husband, Don (who speaks no Italian) described his favorite moment -- he took a walk and ended up having a delightful conversation with a local man who spoke no English. Yet they talked for 40 minutes! I don't think any of us imagined how very friendly and open this beautiful place would be. Katia made great suggestions for shopping, dining, and wine tasting, and made us feel so much a part of this lovely home. The kitchens are beautifully equipped, and that grand, large, family-style table was home to many meals cooked with all the fresh bounty of Umbrian, including local olive oil brand - "L'Arte". Delicioso! There was something for everyone; a delightful Etruscan museum for me, an outdoor restaurant for our son and his wife, infinite photo opportunities for the shutter bugs, and the "world's best" gelato for the girls. We were conveniently situated within comfortable drives of many of the lovely old cities and towns, and we even took a drive to the coast for a day. Happily, we have not crossed Italy off our bucket list; we hope to visit again and again. Only next time, we will feel like we are "coming home" - to Casa bel Posto! Springfield, Vermont, USa 2012
A perfect family house
We had a great stay here, in july 2012. We, as a family with 4 children between 13 and 16 years old, was really pleased with the location, the house and the service. What we didn't like was the fact that the private pool wasn't completely private. We thought that we had rented the whole house and then there was another apartment that also had access to the pool. The internet wasn't very good, but that was of no major setback. The service we received was very good :)
Wonderful, best Umbria and Tuscany rental ever
We have rented Casa del Posto as group of 7 people (2 families with kids). House is much better than pictures, comfortable, equiped in everything you might need. Location on hill is a bonus as you can seat and look at this stunning view for hours. House is souranded by garden with various trees including figs and olive trees so it is easy to find shadow in hot days. Swimming pool is huge and equiped with everything what you need including toys for kids. It is located on hill edge somyou can enjoy view from it. We love Tuscany and Umbria region therefore that was not a first time when we rented house with pool. However from first email from Katia ( who manage property) I have noticed this rental will be different. I've received very comprehensive responses for my questions, she is very proactive, informed us about all activities around, recommended restaurants and arranged dinner cooked by real Italian cousine master Rosanna. I have never had such great host as Katia in my Italian rentals. She was always when necessary and "disappeared" when managed issue or problem.
Despite charmy Panicale we have visited Orvietto, Cortona, Montepulciano, Bagnoregio with incredible Civita village, Perugia, Castel del Lago - all places 1 hour far from appartment.
Katia recommended us some atractions like classical music concert, local market visit or shopping center -all were great recomendation.
We will never forget taste of tomato she brought us !
We will come back here for sure!

everything it promissed to be
We stayed for two weeks at the smaller of the two appartments. It was very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The location was superb ( on the hillside) with walking distance to the town of Panicale ,A very rustic and quiet little place.
The service provided by Katia and her family was fantastic. She provided lots of information about the aria and the many different festivals and markets. We could call on her any time.
We had a wonderfull time and would surely like to come back some time
A little bit of paradise revisited...
The property was much better than described. All the rooms and facilities were very good and comfortable - easily the best in my experience - good dishwasher and washing machine as well as well as two very workable kitchens.
We came eight years ago for the first time and stayed in a different property three years running when our kids were still at that playful age. Now we are all a little older I really wanted another decent family holiday, and this totally fulfilled my expectations.
We were 7 altogether and hired a Fiat Scudo from Europe Car - not at all a bad deal either. The accommodation suited us as we all had ample space and two bathrooms between seven worked very well.
The cleaner changed towels (in abundance) and bed linen three times during our 17 day holiday. Katia, the agent, was friendly and considerate - she made the whole experience so easy - she even bought gifts of local produce and amazing Torta di Noona cooked by her Mum.
Pictures never do justice to the view from the terraces -it's simply breath-taking. The water in the pool was just the right temperature and always clean and fresh feeling. We even had, courtesy of the owners who also made us feel so much at home, fresh figs and apples from trees on the terrace - the figs - were delicious.
The location is ideal and we toured extensively as well. Do visit Orvietto and Pienza. They are well worth the drive. There are so many charming destinations within a 1-1Â˝ hour dive and the scenery never ceases to amaze. Local markets are also worth it. Tavernale has a decent one on Mondays and we used it three times. There is also a Factory Outlet shopping centre in Valdichiana.
All the restaurants in Panicale are worth eating in. Panciano also has a couple of good ones as well.
It was very good and I will certainly consider coming again without any hesitation.
