Style rooted in rusticity set in the picturesque Monte Melino hillside
Casale della Staffa is a 15th-century traditional farm house with beamed ceiling and cotto floors set amid 6.000 olive trees and 20 acres vineyard, with views of the Valley and the castle of Counts Conestabile della Staffa, who have owned the property and the adjacent working farm for over 600 years.
All rooms are bright, airy and elegantly furnished with antiques and artisanal furniture, ironwork, and traditional Umbrian loom weaved fabrics for a tasteful and cozy feeling of home away from home.
The Casale features also a nice swimming pool with a large sun terrace, overlooking the vineyard, the olive groves and the village of Solomeo nestled on the hills on the other side of the valley.
Rates include breakfast (a generous Continental spread), served in what was once the huge farm kitchen. Max two free children per room, up to nine years old, stay free of charge with their parents in extra bed or cot, please ask for availability prior to booking.
Private fenced Gardens and parking, small library, plenty of touristic guides and informations about Umbria and the Lake Trasimeno area in several languages, WiFi in communal areas, flatscreen tv in the rooms.
Reception is between 9am–1pm and 2pm–8pm. Different arrival and check out times can be arranged upon request.
Also Treat your dog to the holiday of a lifetime, by bringing him/her along too, we love well behaved dogs that are respectful of the garden and of other guests, especially for them we have rooms that open directly on the garden. Pets also stay free of charge, max. one large dog or two smaller one per room allowed. Please ask for availability prior to booking.
Food and drink at Casale della Staffa:
Only breakfast is served here, but the owners make sure that it counts, providing a delicious – mainly home-made – spread of sweet croissants, home made cakes pies and conserves, different kinds of bread, a selection of locally produced cold cuts and cheeses, seasonally fruit from our farm and eggs from the chickens that roam free all day in our fields.
The breakfast room has plenty of original details: antique furniture from the castle, a beamed ceiling, and an imposing fireplace. When it comes to lunch and dinner, ask Claudia or Odetta for recommendations, a choice of close by restaurants also offer set menus at special prices for our guests.
Room service None – this is a very relaxed affair.
