“Pure tranquility”
Reviewed 7 September 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We spent a wonderful fortnight nestled deep in the valley where villa Carina can be found. This charming, rustic house is immersed in the beautiful Umbrian countryside and is perfect for lovers of nature and total peace. The house has been thoughtfully designed with spacious, well equipped rooms and bathrooms. A lovely terrace allows one to enjoy the superb views, as does the poolside area.

The surrounding countryside is truly unspoilt, and on our morning walks we were able to see different types of flowers, lizards and the most wonderful array of butterflies. We were also fortunate to see a doe and her fawn, as well as hares.

Mario is a charming host; he is extremely knowledgeable about the area and cares very deeply about the beautiful environment for which he is custodian. A very special place indeed.

“Umbrian rural idyll ”
Reviewed 14 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

A beautiful villa with a calm ambience, constructed in the local vernacular with quality natural materials, and enjoying really outstanding views across a valley towards villages on neighbouring hills, in an unspoilt area. Nature abounds.

Facilities in the villa are exactly what you need and include good cooking equipment, sufficient chairs and loungers, washing machine and dishwasher.

Mario the host is just a gem. I must admit that I expected him to be pushy with tours and additional services, but that wasn’t at all the case. He was on hand in case we needed help, and otherwise totally respectful of our privacy. I went horse riding with him and he’s an interesting and gentle character.

My husband and I had a great time both relaxing at Villa Carina, and visiting the beautiful hill towns, and our son loved the pool, as well as resident cat Scarlet, who must be the friendliest feline in all of Umbria!

If we had to change one thing it would only be to stay at the villa for an extra night instead of having an overnight in Rome in the sweltering August heat before heading back to Blighty - phewf!

“Loved it. Thanks Mario.”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Villa Carina is a lovely place to spend some time. You feel very remote and out of the way, and yet places like Orvieto are easily accessible. The view of the hills and the local villages are stunning.
You also could not have a better host than Mario. We had some difficulties with the electricity whilst we were here. These were totally out of Mario's control and yet he lavished us with tasty local delicacies as an apology.
He was also very helpful with restaurant recommendations, activities and even invited us out to drinks and a meal with some locals.
The approaching drive is not for the fainthearted but if my little VW Polo can get up it, anything can.
There are still some bits that need tidying up, but we are leaving with an overwhelmingly positive view of this delightful little villa.

“Wonderful villa!”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We spent 3 weeks with our two boys at this lovely villa. It is in a beautiful, quiet setting in the Umbrian countryside with wonderful views. It is well placed for travelling, including to Rome, and there are lots of lovely towns and villages to visit. The villa had all that we needed and the pool area is a great area to relax in, with an excellent loggia to shade under if required. The villa is lovely and cool in the evenings in summer. Mario is an excellent host, very attentive without being intrusive. On arrival there was a much appreciated welcome pack of necessities (and some luxuries!) to get the holiday started. Mario was a mine of information and nothing was too much trouble. He even sent us some lovely food one evening! We would highly recommend staying here.
