“Stunning !!!”
Reviewed 9 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Absolutely amazing location.Literally in a secluded forest in the Appenine mountains,however,close to all local villages and amenities.Beautiful pool and outdoor bathtub with a view of the stars(no light pollution here).Have never slept as well in years.Lady owner(English) could not have been more welcoming.Picked up from airport and took me to train station for my next adventure.Local food cooked by the owner from her garden was fantastic.Highlight of my visit (apart from many) was sat outside Goat Cottage at night watching the stars and amazing fireflies.Absolutely magical."Hobbit House" built by the owner herself in the same forest was almost finished and looked incredible.Would recommend 110% and 10 stars.

“Peace in a little paradise”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful place! The nature around is just beautiful ... swimming in the pool with a great view at the mountains was lovely. In the cottage was everything we needed and it was really comfy and warm at nighttime when we made a fire :)
At this place you can really come down, relax and get away from everyday life. We will definately come back :)
Our dog was with us too and he just loved it...he could run arround the whole day and was really relaxed.
Jill was a great host...very friendly if we needed something and also really respected our privacy, Thank you.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If you're looking for a romantic getaway in the middle of nowhere, this is the place to be.
The Goat cottage is wonderful and surrounded by beautiful mountains and small Italian villages with great food and wine. Jill is a great host, we got everything we needed. A nice bed, a clean bathroom, a little kitchen and barbecue, a hot tub underneath the stars, what more can you want.

“Magic under the stars”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you want a peaceful and beautiful rural Italian getaway , you couldn't do better than Goat Cottage. It is a lovely little fully-equipped romantic rural retreat for two. Lying in bed listening to birds and looking at mountains, or barbecuing under the stars in the warm Italian evenings can't be surpassed. Sunbathing by the above-ground pool in the hot Italian summer with inexpensive and delicious local wines and cheeses is a great way to spend the afternoon after driving or riding in the local unspoilt National Park. The host is full of life and laughter, will teach you how to cook fabulous Italian meals and is a valuable source of information for the local area and all that it has to offer. Lighting a fire under the bath, then soaking in bubbly splendour surrounded by fairylights and starlight is a unique and magical experience. I would definitely recommend this quirky little cottage.
