Visited with my girlfriend for 3 nights. Both of us loved our time there and want to go back. The main villa, room and facilities are all perfectly maintained and the staff are amazing. Everyone was incredibly friendly and wanted to help you in any way they could, with the majority speaking English very well. The food at the restaurant was some of the best I've eaten and would definitely recommend the wine tasting with Emmanuella. The food is priced fairly if on the slightly expensive side (starter €15-18, main €20-25) but was all excellent. We even had dinner in the Villa tower on the last night at a €50 supplement but was just the two of us and had 360 degree views of the sunset. Perugia is a 40 minute drive away, which i would 100% recommend and a supermarket is 10 minutes down the road if you want water, medicine etc. The room had great AC which is nice at night. The bed and pillows were a bit hard, but that was my only complaint from the whole holiday.
We have stayed many times and this hotel never fails to delight us and continues to improve year on year. The location is stunning the staff helpful and friendly the food delicious and the wine excellent. We will return again
My wife and I travelled with a couple of good friends who recommended Villa di Monte Solare (having stayed there before). We loved the place. Amazing setting in the Umbrian countryside. We had breakfast in the courtyard every morning and lunched there some days too. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was fantastic. We also picked up some great tips on Umbrian wines and really enjoyed the local whites and reds. Two outdoor swimming pools to choose from and not crowded at all. We also dined out locally in Panicale and Paciano and on one night just popped out to the local pizza ristorante in Tavernelle. By far the best trip out to dine was at Osteria Il Gallo Nel Pozzo in the square at Panicale.... informal fine dining at great prices. Most of all, we loved the friendliness of Umbrian people. We will be back!
The trip to discover the hotel which is well off the main road and up an unmade road is well worth it. The situation is beautiful - the gardens are a delight and so well maintained. It is surrounded by olive trees and vines so you feel as though you are in deepest Umbria. The lavender and rosemary were amazing. We stayed in one of the suites about 200 m away from the main building - it seemed to be a converted farm building which had been very well restored and we had our own parking space just outside. The breakfast is fantastic and it is possible to take trays and dine outside in a very pleasant area with some cats for company! The staff are all very helpful and friendly. For me, the one downside was the restaurant. On our first night, I saw that there was a very limited choice for vegetarians. The second day, I mentioned this to reception and the waitress offered me a choice of grilled vegetables or pasta and tomato sauce. My friend's lamb was cooked to death and tough and the waitress observed that it is usually served pink. The desserts were some old favourites reworked, but perhaps not always in a good way! The light half board option does not really work well as there is not enough choice for the 30 Euros allowed. from the menu.
A jewel in the crown. A fantastic farmhouse style complex set in the vineyards & olive groves on the top of a hill. Secluded gardens around a four bedroomed detached brick & stone lodge The views over the valley were breath taking Food, wine & staff excellent We are planning to go back later this year or early next You need to hire a car and the hotel is about 45 minutes from Perugia Airport in Umbria After speaking to reception they provided a kettle for tea making facilities and a stronger powered hair dryer A safe and mini bar is provided in the room. There are two swimming pools and a tennis court We attended a wine tasting event in the hotel and were able to review three types of wine from local Italian vineyards in Umbria, which was excellent and the staff were very knowledgeable. Any wine left we were allowed to drink at dinner
We stayed there last week and simply loved the Villa. Our room in an old farmhouse was perfect, large and very quiet, surrounded by flowers and woods. The staff are very helpful and the restaurant delightful.
What a wonderful relaxing Italian estate! A beautiful and picturesque property, far away from the crowds and the cities. Getting here is not for the faint of heart as it is a bit off the grid. But once you are here there is nothing that is lacking. The staff is courteous and efficient. They were most helpful in pre arrival meal planning and offering assistance setting up off property excursions. We loved the two pools and used them quite a bit. Don't miss a day bicycling along Lake Trasimeno. We rented really nice bikes from a local bike shop called Cicli Valentini, they really went out of there way to accommodate us at the last minute; especially when we had almost no language skills in common! The rooms and accommodations were first class. Plenty of room with large comfortable baths and sumptuous bedding. The food was wonderful, the wines choices outstanding. The breakfast buffet is so good you can't wait to get out of bed to go! I We set up massages ahead of time and enjoyed the spa atmosphere, though my wife and I were disappointed by the massages. Though remote in location we were able to make day trips to local villages and the surrounding countryside, including Perugia, Montepulciano and Montalcino. We wish we could have stayed longer. Would go back again and again
My wife and I travelled to Villa Di Monte Solare in June 2016 with another couple.We flew into Perugia, hired a car and followed directions supplied by Hotel which were very good.On arrival met by a very courteous receptionist and shown to our rooms. Beautiful rooms , very old building, stone stairs and floors with rugs, really rustic and relaxing. Great of the valleys and vineyards from the upped bedrooms. There are town Pools, one near the main hotel and one at the bottom of the hill behind the hotel where the cookery school is located.We tended to use this pool even though the walk back to the hotel is really steep but if you don't want hills don't go to Umbria. We stayed three days and nights and really had a fantastic time, Breakfast is served with a huge and varied Buffet. Lunch is typically light with local breads and meats. The evening menus were really special and varied with variations of original local dishes cooked to your liking, too varied to go into here but the four of us could not pick one dish alone as best overall as every meal we had was excellent. The Hotel has an outstanding Sommelier and every Wine she recommended was as she had described. We attended the Cookery School for a morning and it was quite good , we learned some local methods of Pasta making and so on but would have liked to more cooking and less watching the chef cook. Overall we have a fantastic few days here and would come back in a heartbeat.The only downside was with the Cookery School which was quite expensive included a Hotel Chefs Apron which was out of stock I have e-mailed about this but it has not been delivered yet, maybe this year. Lovely place, not cheap but I think worth a visit. I will go back someday.
From the moment we arrived Allesio made us so very welcome and was so helpful with the local area,giving us tips on places to visit and suggesting a wonderful walk which we did around the Hotels grounds. All of the staff here were so helpful and it felt like a very well run Establishment. The room was excellent with a stunning view across the valley. The breakfast room and the selection available was one of the best I have seen in Italy. The restaurant staff were also very professional and it was a lovely experience for dinner in the evening.
Beautiful location sorounded by olive groves and vineyards... Excellent food Clean rooms Real wild boars and foxes around Very imaginative chef... Professional and friendly sommelier, congratulations lady... Please change or repair your bicycles, dear friends 😀
