“Secure location with lovely view”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Spent two weeks at Ranca in wonderful weather, so much appreciated the small swimming pool. We ate breakfast outside in the sun on one side of the cottage and lunch and dinner on the other. The cottage is the end portion of the adjoining large house and is surrounded by wooded hills on three sides and has a lovely view over the golf course and castle to the north.
The cottage is on four split levels with small staircases between and is well equipped.
A car is necessary to shop and to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside with its hill towns being major attractions.
There are some excellent restaurants recommended in the visitor's book as are some hill towns which escape some of the tourist guides. Mentone, for instance, needs at least one visit!.
We much enjoyed our first visit to Umbria and would highly recommend it

“Beautiful House in a Beautiful Spot”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this wonderful, spacious "home from home" holiday house. The managers of the property were extremely helpful, warm and friendly throughout our stay. It was a fabulous location in the middle of the countryside overlooking a castle and a stunning golf course. The castle does have a crane over hanging it, which has apparently been there for over 12 years, but it just blends into the countryside once you get used to it! There is a bit of road noise that tends to get drowned out by the noise of crickets, but otherwise a really super spot to really relax and enjoy the Umbrian Countryside.

“Ideal Italian getaway”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A few days relaxing with our travel buddies in the very pleasant surrounds of Ranca was a very nice way to wrap up what had been an active holiday.
The accommodation was secure, top class, well-appointed and comfortable, off the more beaten path but still close to town and things to do and see in this beautiful part of the world. Speaking of which, there can't be that many places in the world where you can you look out the window and have difficulty working out whether you should be looking at the 18-hole golf course or the mediaeval castle overlooking it?
Thanks to Chrissy and David as charming hosts and it was great to meet their family as well. Very welcoming.
A definite must if you are staying in this part of the world.

This is our second stay at Ranca, a charming property which overlooks a picturesque green valley containing the Antognolla Golf Course and the stunningly beautiful Antognolla Castle. The whole area is surrounded by thickly wooded mountains. We found this spacious two storey residence to be tastefully decorated, very comfortable and well-equipped. It contains two large double en-suite bedrooms with adequate storage, a good sized living area, as well as an ample eat-in kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine. Ranca is part of an old converted farm house which is located in a beautiful, well maintained security-gated garden, complete with private parking, outdoor furniture and barbecue. There is a comprehensive manual in the living room which contains everything you need to know about the property, recommended tourist attractions, notable historic towns and good places to eat.
David, a local resident, who manages the property with his wife Chrissie, was very helpful and welcoming and saw to it that we had everything we needed including a supply of breakfast things for our first morning.
Ranca's location is second to none and provided us with a peaceful resting place in which we could take a breather and relax. Can't wait for our third visit.
Thanks for looking after us so well David.

“Just a wonderful place in the world”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were fortunate to stay at La Ranca after being referred and it was a fantastic experience. From the beautiful and rustic residence we overlooked both a castle and a golf course which made for a brilliant view in the Umbrian countryside. Our hosts, Chrissie and David, mentioned we should actually try the golf course dinner which proved to be one of our favourite food highlights of our Italian trip. Chrissie and David who manage this property along with their own were truly generous and special hosts who have a spectacular property of their own with a pool to die for during the Italian summer. La Ranca was tremendous, offering all the rustic charm, though fully appointed at the same time. Can't wait to get back!!
