“Wish I could have stayed longer!”
It was so hard to leave the villa on the last day. There is a spectacular view of the Umbrian hills from the kitchen window. We spent most of the time when in the house, in the kitchen cooking with the delicious Italian ingredients from the lovely local markets surrounding. It was such a peaceful, relaxing holiday. Thanks to Katia for checking-in on us periodically to see if we needed anything and for showing us such Italian hospitality!
“what a view”
We visited the villa with friends who had 3 teens and a baby. We have a baby and a 4 and 6 years old. Perfect location for us! We had a great stay at Panicale in casa bel posto. The villa is located on the top of a hill with an amazing view towards the lake of trasimeno. Everytime stunning again. The appartments are well equiped and comfortable. Only thing missing in the small appartment was a musquito protection for the windows. The swimmingpool is so big and relaxing. very nice for the kids. The garden around is very wide, we even hadn't the time to discover all. Panicale is a lovely town with so kind and friendly open and warm people. Panicale is very well situated to visited easily lot's of towns in umbrie and toscane. The ideal base to discover Italy. We will definately go back there. Much more to do than we could have done in these 2 weeks. And than Katia, she is better than you can ever dream. So is so kind always there if you need her. Gives advice for trips, neighbourhood. If something is missing she will take care of it within no time. She doesn't push at all. If you dont need her she's not bothering you. She is so happy to help you out with no matter what. You should be able to take her on all your holidays.. Top! Thanks for everything!!!
“This home has a fabulous view, nice swimming pool, and wonderful property manager.”
Nice private location near the picturesque medieval towns of Panicale and Paciano, but a little far to walk on a country road that is dark at night. Fabulous views of the Umbrian countryside and Lake Trasimeno. We enjoyed all of our meals outside and utilized the pool almost daily. This place is in a great location for day trips to several cities in Tuscany and Umbria. There are many nice restaurants nearby. The restaurant and shop owners were very friendly. The rental manager Katia is absolutely wonderful, making our stay even more special. She gave us lots of helpful advice and provided us with some wine and other gifts during our 2 week stay. She also had us over for a lovely dinner with her family. We feel like she is now a friend. The only negatives about the rental were 1) having to wire money and pay cash instead of being able to use a credit card for the deposits- -worked out fine, though 2) uncomfortable beds, and 3) poor window screens --not a lot of bugs, but some mosquitoes. In the end, though, we would rent this place again in a heartbeat.
“autumn/winter in panicale”
we stayed autumn [okt/nov] and januari in the bel Posto villa, apartment paradiso, with wunderfull view on the Trasimeno lake. We could walk a lot. Especially in oktober the wtheather was good, about 15 degree C.In januari the great advantage is visiting the famous cities like assisi, Perugia, Rome, Cortona, without being crowded by tourists. Rome is by train less than 2 hours from Chiusi [15 min. by car]. We enjoyed the hospitality in the shops [supermarket of Linda], in the bar [Aldo], and elsewhere. The villa is only 20 minutes by foot from the small villages of Panicale and Paciano. Both have supermarket, butcher, pharmacia, bar and restaurants. The bakery is in Panicale. Also in winter there are always some restaurants open. Last but not least we enjoyed the warm hospitality of katia and massimo who invited us several times at their house for real italian dinner with interesting people. Nothing is too much for katia in letting us feel at home! Apart from the shops in Panicale and Paciano there is the weekly market in Tavernelle, the fresh pasta shop 'Pasta e Pasticci' in Castiglione [15 min by car], the wineries 'il Poggio'[5 min] and la Querciolana [5 min], la Saporita for fresh fruit and vegetables, etc., etc. The Paradiso apartment is very comfortable for 2, also in winter; it is newly build and well isolated, so that you do not need to heat too much [which is costly in Italy]. You enjoy the view on the lake without being too isolated, because the village is only 1 km. away. We will be staying again in Paradiso from mid april untill the end of may, so that we will anjoy spring! We look forward to it!
“Easy, Brezzy's holiday”
The moment we returns back to Villa Bel Posto for the second time, it's just like coming back home and I really meant it! Last year when I flip through the flipkey site and found this lovely peaceful place situated just few minutes outside the charming little town 'Panicale' we had a wonderful time, met so many friendly local including the lady who manages the Villa 'Katia' she is so easy to get along and very well organized, she made everything so easy even kindly gave us the cake made by her granny. This year even better - she invited us all to her charming home for dinner! How can you find this kind of hospitality while you are on holiday, really!! we visit so many hill towns in Umbria ie Orvieto, Cortona, Todi and Perugia including the Tuscan hill towns of Montepulciano and many more...our high light for this year must be the visit to our favourite place Rapolano Terme (visit once a week)it took us just an hour drive toward Siena, it's the place to be for mind, body and spirit. we also visit Castiglione del Lago for Classical music at Palazzo della Corgna which took only 25 mins from Panicale, So much to say about... but I mustn't forget to mentioned the hospitality we had received by the owner of the Villa, Mr and Mrs Pison, they are so kind and made us felt very welcome, we had drinks Prosecco and home brews Grappa with their family, the walk to the lake and even our Italian not that great, we managed to made a very interesting conversation together with the few jokes or so...oh, one more thing, the swimming pool, so refreshing after long hot day when you want to give yourself a break from the car journey. It's the place to be, to dip yourself in and all the heat is just melted away! believed me 'it's the place to be next time you are heading for you next holiday in Italy'
“Great place to stay! Great hospitality!”
Review #6597159 Great place to stay! Great hospitality! We organized a family reunion to Villa Bel Posto and found the Villa to be a great central location from which to see the rest of Umbria and Tuscany. The pool really is huge- we all absolutely loved it. The owners (they don't live to the Villa permanently but they come with part of the family in the summer time) and Katia the house Manager were very welcoming and helpful. Will highly recommend to friends. We had a great Holiday and a great hospitality! This is Italy!
“Great vacation spot”
Villa Bel Posto was everything we hoped it would be, comfortable, clean, roomy, well stocked, and friendly. We rented both apartments on the ground floor of the Villa. The four bedrooms, three baths, living areas, and kitchens were perfect for 8/9 adults. Katia and the lovely owners were wonderful hosts and we would highly recommend Villa Bel Posto for a great Umbria getaway. The view is unbelievable...pictures don't give justice to this amazing location!! The town of Panicale was awesome, provided all the needs of daily living. The yard and pool were perfect for relaxation, and the house was comfortable even when it was very hot out. And the surrounding fields of blooming sunflowers made each day a joy to behold. You are also centrally located between Perugia and Siena, Assisi, and Florence, all a day trip away. We give it 5 stars. You can rent villa BEL Posto without any hesitation! The owners are absoluteky friendly and nice and Katia is superb!!
“Beautiful Villa Bel Posto”
Our family including two young children spent 12 wonderful days at Villa bel Posto. From the beautiful well-maintained home and property to Katia the House Manager and the owners, we loved every minute of our visit. The girls had a ball swimming in the pool after sightseeing in Panicale and the adults loved both swimming and lounging poolside. The porch was always a favorite destination for a glass of vino and the spectacular views that you can't explain by words; for a moment to just sit and relax; to enjoy a meal; or to have an olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting with Katia, the Manager of the house. The owners suggested wonderful local markets to shop at and the cooks in the family loved preparing tasty fresh meals with delicious veggies, fruits, local meats, and of course wine. The shops and restaurants that Katia recommended in Panicale were also highlights of our visit and we would all love to return. The property was all and more than we could have hoped for and Katia was an excellent host. 12 days were not enough for us to see and experience all this area offers. We all felt like we were at the home of dear friends and we hope to return to explore more of this beautiful and interesting area of Italy!
“Fantastic Villa and Wonderful Location”
We had a wonderful holiday while staying at the Villa Bel Posto. If you are in any doubt about where best to base your tour of Umbria and surrounding areas, don't hesitate to make this your temporary home. With first class facilities, set in its own grounds on a hillside overlooking Lago Tresimeno and within a short (hilly) walk of the small, charismatic medieval town of Panicale, with its array of bars and restaurants, we sauntered home by the light of the fireflies, many times. Katia the property manager made us feel warmly welcomed. With husband and teenage son, we hired the Paradiso apartment with totally unforgettable, panoramic views across the terraced pool towards Lago Tresimeno and the hills beyond. It was a hard decision whether to stay at the villa with the large deep pool, sit under the shade of the olive trees with a glass of Prosecco and a good book, surrounded by the butterflies or to explore one of the many villages or towns. Having previously toured Rome, Florence and Siena (all within a day trip from the Villa) we decided to focus on an area within a 50 km or so. We visited Cortona, Todi, Montepulciano, Orvieto and Gubbio, each of which was uniquely fascinating. Nearby Lake Tresimeno is beautiful and Castiglione del Lago. Wherever you go, there are delicious meals and fantastic local oil and wines. We visited Perugia more than once to capture the atmosphere of the world's largest outdoor Jazz festival taking place during our stay in July. With stages set in the main piazzas for world class musicians and smaller groups on the streets outside bars, cafes and gelateria's, filling the streets with all kinds of music. We sampled many, heart meltingly good ice creams and the local speciality of porchetta, cold slices of herb crusted roast pork served in bread rolls, ideal to eat while wandering around the town. With such a marvellous place to stay and with so much more to see, we are already planning our return trip.
“Perfect Italy vacation for parents...and kids!!!”
Words and pictures cannot do this beautiful property, its view, or its location justice! Casa Bel Posto was the perfect home base for our three week Umbrian holiday. We rented both apartments, and the set-up could not have have better suited to our two families of four (children aged 7-11.) Upon arrival, we were greeted by lovely Katia, the property manager, who introduced us to the villa. Once we recovered from the awe of the beautiful scenery and lake view, she explained thoroughly all the amenities including the modern and well equipped kitchens, swimming pool facilities (including poolside bathroom and shower!), washing machines, dishwashers, etc. Also awaiting us were delicious local wines to enjoy! Katia is a wealth of resources and information. She is able to provide babysitters, private cooking lessons with Nonna Roseanna, local market days, and any other suggestions or information you might need. She is readily available for any of your needs, accommodating and lovely. The villa itself is an amazing property set in the hillside with breathtaking views of Lake Trasimeno. It is a charming, rambling villa reminiscent of centuries long ago, yet surprisingly modern in its amenities. The grounds are well manicured and covered with fig, pear, and other fruit trees. The property is entirely fenced, so our city dwelling kids were able to experience running and playing outside among the fireflies in the evening. And the swimming pool!! It is very large, clean and blue, and very refreshing! The kids spent hours in the warm afternoons swimming and diving off the diving board! The location of the villa is central to Umbria so that all the hill towns are easily accessible. With our kiddos in mind, we toured hill towns in the morning/early afternoons, and spent the warm evenings poolside. Book villa BEL Posto immediately without any hesitation!!!
