“Janet's review of Villa del Castello”
Perfection! Exactly what we had hoped! The beauty of a country villa yet within driving distance of everything we wanted to see and then some! Everything: the beds were comfortable, rooms spacious, bathrooms fully equipped, modern kitchen gorgeous, an outside patio, and our own private wine cellar! Great location for day trips. We managed to explore about 3 different towns each day.
“Judy's review of Villa del Castello”
From Alex's welcome to Olga's jams, the beautiful surroundings, the lovely villa, the gelateria close by, and the fabulously equipped kitchen, the experience was wonderful. Everything! The beautiful decor, the attention to detail, the quiet location, the lovely garden, the outdoor living spaces, we loved it all! We loved visiting Civita di Bagnoreggio and other close by towns. We really enjoyed the quiet and the fact that we could just relax and be there.
“Michelle's review of Villa del Castello”
Villa del Castello is a very special place. It's located in a charming little village with a beautiful castle. We loved meeting the residents of Torre Alfina. We even hung out with them when Italy was in the Euro Cup finals, plus we got a tour of Fabio's gelato factory a kilometer away from the town center. We very much felt at home and were sad to leave after our two-week stay. The house, inside and outside, is outstanding. Indoors, the bedrooms are very spacious, the furniture is beautiful and the ceilings are very high. Outdoors, the pergola is very comfortable and inviting, the gardens are lovely and there was plenty of space for our kids to play on the lawn. And you can't beat the view of the castle! The surrounding area is lovely and peaceful...and not too many tourists (unlike in major centers and in the heart of Tuscany)! My husband enjoyed going for long bike rides and checking out nearby villages.
“Steve's review of Villa del Castello”
We all had a marvelous time. The beds were most comfortable, the other furnishings were good quality and in good repair. We especially liked the physical location because of the easy access to places and experiences we wanted to enjoy. The caretaker and his wife were so very helpful throughout the visit. By the end of the week, we felt completely at home and sort of resented the next group of renters coming in to take "our" villa. I think that the most wonderful thing was the pergola. We used that almost exclusively as long as the weather permitted. Coffee and breakfast, dinner in the evenings, it was always our gathering place. Of course, that's not to say we didn't enjoy the garden, fruit trees, herbs, ornamentals, etc. It's just about too difficult to pick one thing. We loved the small towns with the winding streets and the walls, and the countryside as a whole. The weather was wonderful, even on the day it rained. We especially liked the proximity of Torre Alfino and the good restaurant and gelateria that we found there.
“Sandy 's review of Villa del Castello”
Staying at the Villa del Castello is like being in paradise! The villa is charming and set in serene and peaceful gardens. Lovely soft air, amazing views of the medieval castle, coffee in the garden listening to nature under the pergola covered with climbing vines. Privacy, yet at the edge of the village. One of the best holidays I've ever had anywhere. Alex and Olga are the couple who took wonderful care of us and they became our friends. The house is complete and has everything you might need. Gorgeous kitchen, well-stocked. Lovely sitting room, dining room, bedrooms and bathrooms kept in pristine condition. Wine cellar is fantastic. Laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board came in very handy. Great supermarkets in Aquapendente with local shops in Torre Alfina such as a meat shop, bread shop, small market and two cafes/gelaterias. Dont forget to visit the Coop in Aquapendente, an excellent supermarket. We loved everything about the beautiful villa, landscaped with flower gardens and pots of flowers and herbs. A wonderful vegetable garden, as well. Wonderful, friendly people in the village, Connie and Carlo's Ristorante Nuovo Castello in Torre Alfina, Sarchionis and Simone, outdoor concerts in the center of town, trips to Aquapendente, weekly open markets, exquisite drive to Orvieto with hills and valleys of olive trees and vineyards. The owner and his wife were very gracious, calling us upon our arrival. We loved Aquapendente and the Toscana restaurant, Orvieto with it glorious cathedral and great restaurant I Sette Consuli, Montepulciano and A Gambe di Gatto restaurant, Trattoria da Gianfranco in Trevinano, and Osteria del Ceccottino in Pitigliano - all superb culinary experiences. I guess you can see how much we adore Italian food. Also, not to miss is the Festival of flowers, the art exhibit in the town hall, the two churches in Torre Alfina, and climbing around the castle for the spectacular views
“Maryellen's review of Villa del Castello”
The villa and town were perfect! Alex was very helpful. We went to a Brunello winery where we had a private tour and 4 course wine tasting lunch! Mark, an American guide who lives in town, arranged it for us. The decor is well appointed. Grounds are great. We had unusually warm weather for November so were able to take advantage of the outside dining. Loved the butcher in town and of course, the gelateria. Went to Orvieto which was beautiful. Montepulciano, Pienza, and Montalcino. Had previously spent 3 days in Florence before driving to the villa.
“Virginia's review of Villa del Castello”
We loved the village location, being able to walk to the stores, etc. The villa itself was lovely, beds comfortable, the grounds beautiful. Having the wine cellar was certainly a plus. Taking the trip to the vineyard was a highlight. The outside dining area. Frequent trips to get a gelato and/or cappuccino in town. There was no place to hang clothes in one upstairs bedroom. Torre Alfina village itself and other local small villages. We had a local guide (and American) take us on a wonderful day trip to a Tuscan winery and the town of Pienza.
“Carol's review of Villa del Castello”
Excellent. Location, comfort. There was a large open field behind the villa where several local teenagers rode their dirt bikes in the evening. It was very noisy and annoying. We chased them off a couple of times. It was like living in a postcard. We visited 21 hill towns in our 3-week stay.
“Sandra's review of Villa del Castello”
From the moment we entered the villa we were enchanted by its loveliness. The first day really set the tone for the rest of the week. Alex showed us around and made us feel very welcomed and fortunate to be spending our vacation at Villa del Castello. He provided a light meal for us including chilled wine which we enjoyed under the lovely grape arbor. He also stocked the frig with eggs and other breakfast items we'd need in the morning. In short our stay and the accommodations always met or exceeded our expectations. It's hard to choose what we liked most about the property. My husband was delighted with the garden fresh tomatoes and other produce. We all enjoyed relaxing with a glass of wine from the wine cellar after a busy day. And I simply loved the windows. They were large enough to let in lots of sunshine and breezes and closed tightly enough to keep out noise and the morning light. We all slept late that first morning thanks to the comfy beds and those great windows. The villa was a marvelous place to just relax. My son and his wife used the bathroom with the whirlpool tub, but they missed having a shower. Torre Alfina was a pretty little town and Sarchiones Gelateria was a favorite spot to visit in the evening. Our favorite day trips were to Sovana, Pitigliano, Civita di Bagnoreggio and the Decugnano dei Barbi winery.
“Judy's review of Villa del Castello”
Our week at Villa del Castello was fabulous! Torre Alfina is a charming little village with more to offer than you would expect from a place with only 400 residents. It was a good base to explore the area, but was also a wonderful spot to hang out and relax. Everything was great--better than we expected. Use of the wine cellar and produce from the garden was an amazing bonus. Sarchioni's Gelateria was a regular stop and the people there were delightful. We particularly enjoyed our visit to the facility where they produced their delicious gelato. If you think gelato tastes great, you should try pistachio right after it's made! Orvieto and Acquapendente were both towns worthy of exploring.
