“Wonderful visit!”
Reviewed 5 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This was the first time we have stayed away from a city and absolutely loved our experience. Peter and Nina were fabulous hosts and La Lombarda is beautiful. The apartment was on the ground floor and had a private patio with table, chairs, BBQ pit. The decor is rustic and very comfortable. The bed is very comfortable. The location is ideal if you plan to hit the usual suspects such as Cortona, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Pienza, etc...
Upon our arrival we found our kitchen stocked with fresh meats, cheese, bread and a bottle of a local wine. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, but had no microwave, which was perfectly fine for us. We were there for nine nights and truly felt like home. There is a beautiful swimming pool and inasmuch as I intended to use it, the weather was a bit to cool for a dip. That did not stop us from sitting by the pool and enjoying the sunset.

Peter and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at La Lombarda and that Il Bocciolo felt like home. It was lovely to hear about your love for Italy, where you had been and see some of your photos. We really appreciate your kind review, thank you both.

“A beautiful farmhouse retreat in Tuscany”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We loved our week in this beautiful farmhouse retreat in Tuscany. Perched amongst the vineyards, olive trees and rolling hills of the countryside, we were made to feel completely at home. We enjoyed having breakfasts and cooking dinners in the wonderful kitchen, and ventured out each day to explore various places in Tuscany and neighboring Umbria. Nina and Peter were happy to make suggestions, and had stocked the kitchen with lots of welcoming treats such that if we hadn't want to go to the shops on the afternoon of our arrival, we would have been well set for the evening and next morning. They really did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable, and it was! Our favorite places to explore: Cortona, Gubbio, Lake Trasimeno, Le Celle (Nina will give you directions), and the little towns of Paciano and Panicale. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Osteria del Teatro in Cortona, and shopping at the Coop met our every need!

“A perfect retreat!”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

La Lombarda, is a delightful farmhouse, set in a quiet and peaceful rural area. We wanted to retreat from the world and were able to do this here. The local area is stunning, and the ease of getting to the Medieval town of Cortona, with a hire car, made going out in the evening most pleasant. Cortona, provided excellent restaurants, and plenty of local culture.

We were welcomed most warmly by the owners, and the farmhouse itself was superbly equipped, along with a lovely private swimming pool, and patio to relax in.

We really recommend this property for both couples and families who want to relax and explore the local delights of Tuscany and Umbria.

“Just the most gorgeous location with perfect hosts”

person found this review helpful

This really is the most perfect place you could stay if visiting Tuscany. It is perfectly located for visiting Montepulciano, Cortona, Sienna, Pienza and the surrounding area. But what makes this place are the most perfect hosts, Peter and Nina and Caterina who just really look after you. The accommodation is well appointed and we stayed here four years on the run, just loved it. Would highly recommend.
