Beautiful villa, and wonderful location. This an excellent place for couples and families (we went with our two little children but would have been happy coming as a couple). Lovely pool and property, and close to great tourist destinations.
I was so thrilled to stay at Villa Santa Catarina! It is indescribably beautiful with breathtaking views in every direction! The pictures does not do it justice!
And each and every morning, when I opened the bedroom windows to view the gorgeous sunrise, I had to pinch myself to make sure I was not dreaming. It felt like heaven on earth!
And now I cannot wait to come back again for a longer stay!
And I would like to give a shout out to Marga who prepared a delicious meal for us when we arrived and who chauffeured us around. She was a godsend and we cannot thank her enough!
Wow, what an amazing stay we had in Santa Catarina. We needed a week of total relaxation and we got it.
We stayed in the smaller cottage and we loved it. We were welcomed by Marga, our host, and her 3 lovely dogs. She showed us the place.
Views are impressive and unsurpassed. You can’t stop making pictures.
Our cottage was gorgeous. A great fireplace for the colder evenings, a fully outillaged kitchen and I personally love it, a great shower.
Marga gave us various tips of places to go, places to eat and things to do.
Our time here was in one word incredible. Luckily the weather is good in Holland too, but we are sad to be leaving this beautiful place. But we will most definitely be back here.
Thanks for everything!

Fabulous hilltop villa beautifully restored with modern but timeless ambiance and great attention to details.
The villa has breathtaking views and we very much enjoyed lounging around the pool, as well as drinking lovely Umbrian wines and sampling local cuisine around the patio while absorbing the magnificent scenery. We also took many beautiful walks around the countryside.
The villa is perfectly located for touring Umbria and is close to many beautiful medieval towns and tourist attractions. Nearby Umbertida is a convenient place to stock up with local produce.
The house is beautifully furnished with great attention to details and comfort. It had all the facilities we needed and the house keeper Marga was wonderful and attended to all our needs. This included picking us up from the train station and doing some shopping for us before our arrival.She had also vast knowledge about the area and gave us very good recommendations for local restaurants and events.
We stayed in the villa with two friends for a week, and were very sad to say goodbye to this paradise, however we will definitely return
Amazing restoration of the hilltop farmhouse was just the start of a wonderful stay. Marja, the caretaker, literally took care of everything including cooking a couple of great meals for us. Perfectly located for touring Umbria, it is close to everything, it was great to come back in the afternoon , sip an Aperol Spritz, and gaze at the distant snow capped Apennine Mountains. It would sleep 6 comfortably and there is also a separate 2 person cottage available apparently. Bit cool for the pool but may have to come back in the summer to try it. We actually got to help with the olive picking which was great fun and even went down to the olive mill to see the olive crop turned into oil!
