Just finished a week at IL Berneto with family & friends (9 total) and the Villa was actually more beautiful than the pictures if you can imagine. Martina was wonderful as was Angelo and Anna who cooked for us one night. The location is great for visiting Tuscany and Umbria with easy day trips (all within an hour except Florence) to Sienna, Assisi, Montepulciano, Florence and Orvieto. There is a pastry/gelato shop & a small market at the end of the beautiful entrance to the Villa that you can walk to for any food or wine you need. Café Seven had great food and you can arrange a local winery tour/tasting with the owner whose cousin Seffano runs the winery a few miles from the Villa. The weather was wonderful and we were lucky to have the pool open a few days before it was closed for the season as a gift from Martina. I can't wait to go back and would recommend this property for anyone and again thank you Martina for a great week.
Il Berneto is magical -- our group of 18 (8 adults and 10 kids) just completed our week stay, and we wish we were staying longer. As with many of the other reviews, our only negative is that we have to leave. We absolutely LOVED everything about our stay at IL Berneto - the villa itself is amazingly well done, the property, pool and view outstanding and we also loved our little adopted town of Monteleone D' Orvieto. Martina and Carlotta were great to work with and Angelino and Anna very helpful and Anna cooked us a fantastic meal one night. The combination of the country/quiet setting of Il Berneto with being able to also walk right into the town and to Gelato/Dinner right at the end of the long driveway was perfect for our group. We have travelled many times both in the US and abroad and we have all agreed that this was our favorite villa and overall vacation experience ever. Also, easy travel to many great hill towns, etc. Highlight for the kids (and grown-ups) were Asissi, Civita di Bagnaregio. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home. We would love to come back some day!!

This is what is must be like to summer at an old family place at the top of a Tuscan hill town. The views were spectacular from all sides of property. The place is even more beautiful that in the pictures. Angelo and Martina were wonderful hosts. Don't miss using the pizza oven -worth the euros to have Angelo spend 3-4 hours firing it up (a hot and messy job!). We found pizza dough at the larger grocery store near the train station - it's sold in long rolls in the refrigerated section, not the dough balls I was expecting.
We had absolutely everything we needed either at the villa or within walking distance - including the oft-mentioned gelateria at the end of the drive. Cappuccino bar is just a little further up the main road on the left. Another don't-miss is the walk through town to the 180 degree overlook. There's not much in town itself (no touristy shopping for example) but it's unbelievably picturesque.
A few notes/recommendations:
This property is so charming and truly ancient in some parts. However, the inherent unevenness of steps/flooring and frequent level changes in the house made it a little treacherous for those with mobility issues, especially in the middle of the night. Not a criticism, just a note for those who might need to worry about that.
The beds are hard. There's no way around it. I should be used to the Italian standard mattress by now but....ouch.
No way to avoid a car rental. The drive down the hill to either the A1 or the train station is about 15 minutes and not walkable. We found that there was more variety and frequency of trains if we drove to Orvieto train station - about 20 minutes away. Orvieto should be a required stop regardless for anyone visiting this part of Italy. One of the most spectacular towns in Europe.
Based on the reviews we had high hopes and Il Berneto was still even better than expected. What a truly wonderful place. It has everything you could want for a family or group vacation - great location, stunning grounds and views, a spacious and well-maintained beautiful house. Martina is the consummate host - thank you so much for opening your family's farmhouse to vacation rentals!
We went off-season in November for 8 days. It ended up being a great time to visit - it was olive harvest time. We were greeted by Martina and her mother with a bottle of freshly milled olive oil made from the olive trees on the property. We picked up a couple more bottles later as well at the mill close to the town of Fabro Scala a short drive away. Before and after we arrived, Martina was always quick to respond to any questions and provided us with many recommendations for things to do and places to visit in the region. She even arranged a private tasting for us at the winery Tenuta Corini nearby.
We took easy day trips to Orvieto, Assisi, Civita di Bagnoregio, Perugia (and the Case del Cioccolato outside of town for a tour) and a couple of times to Citta della Pieve which is another of the many hilltop towns a short drive away. It was nice to be able to avoid the crowds in off-season. Our two year old son never wanted to leave the propery because he loved playing inside and on the grounds with all of the kids toys, especially the little tractor. That was fine with us as we loved just wandering to the quiet non-touristy town of Monteleone d'Orvieto, picking up groceries at the store at the end of the lane and cooking at home. We even roasted chestnuts in the large living room fireplace. One night Anna - who does a wonderful job as housekeeper - cooked a terrific many course meal for us as well.
There are a couple of decent cafe's within a very short walk - one just at the end of the lane to the house by the road and the other (Seven Cafe) just a couple of minutes further walking. La Tana del Gufo is a good family restaurant/pizzeria also less than a 10 minute walk away.
Normally my wife and I don't like going back to same place twice, but we hope to make Il Berneto one of the exceptions. We really hope to make it back soon for another stay!
Our group of 11 friends rented this villa to celebrate a 70th birthday and also 25 years of friendship. This villa met and exceed every possible expectation. When you arrive, you drive down this beautiful driveway and at the end is this gorgeous home with breath-taking views. The walled town of Monteleone d'Orvieto is to the west and another equally beautiful town is in the east. The interior of the villa is so large with many rooms for gathering, or quiet areas if you want to sit and read a book. Many of our group like to cook, so we often gathered around the very well equiped larger kitchen to make gnocchis or prepare some appetizers to share along with some fantastic wine of the region. There are many dining options either inside or take some tables outside and enjoy your meal with the beautiful views of the olive trees, gardens and the towns nearby. We hired Anna for two evenings and were thrilled with her meal choices and culinary capabilities. Our group also enjoyed taking a cooking lessons at a nearby restaurant - highly recommended! Each day we went out exploring various towns in Northern Umbria and Tuscany. Some of the highlights were Orvieto, Multipulciano, Perugia, Siena, Florence. There is a good grocery store in Fabro, about 10 minutes away - very near A1. The local town has a bar/cafe called Seven that is great and also a small store and bakery. People were very nice helping us out with directions, even drove us to a winery 10 minutes away because they thought we might get lost. Martina is such a delight to work with. She will come at the beginning of your stay and tour you around the house and find our what your particular needs are and how she can help you attain them. Our group would love to go back again for another stay and next time spend more time enjoying the villa and the countryside near it. It truly was A TRIP OF A LIFETIME!
From the time you enter this Villa you will be amazed...... The View is so breath taking, the villa so clean and magnificent. We had a family reunion there and it was so perfect. We made pizzas in the brick oven, swam in the pool, everyone had the time of their lives. We also took day trips to Orvietto, Assisi, Caste de Leone, Cortona. Just a beautiful vacation. Thank you Martina and everyone who made this vacation memorable!!
