We stayed here with my sister-in-law and her husband, who had never visited this region before.
This is a gorgeous house in a stunning location, is has everything you might need. There is multitudes of information provided of places to visit, restaurants etc, enough to keep you busy for months.
It's very well thought out, outside the pool gets the last rays of sun and there is a table that gets the morning sun to eat breakfast at, plus other places to sit out in the sun or shade as you choose.
I can recommend the Sunday buffet lunch only 3km (from the real road) towards Tuscany, more amazing food than you thought you could eat, mainly grown in Christina's garden, and in the opposite direction Nonna Gelsa is consistently good food and very friendly.
There are so many lovely places to visit and try to walk off the calories that you really didn't try hard enough not to consume.
I would recommend this property especially if you just want to get away from the rat race and relax.
Casa D'Oliva is a wonderful place to stay. I went with 4 other women, rented a car and toured around Umbria and Tuscany in Ocotber of 2010. We came home each night to this warm and welcoming home. It is beautiful, quiet and authentically Italian! There is plenty of private and communal space. The gals who care take are lovely and helpful with suggestions. We would all go back together or with another group. Enjoy!! Martha, Warwick, RI
Quiet/ Remote - yet in thoroughly integrated with the mountains, villages and city-states that provide historical context, this lovely home provides a comfortable environment for a base to explore central and northen Umbria. Tinkling bells from sheep herds, occasional truffle hunters, and the whisper (truly) of the pines are the primary sounds. Local trattorias - and restaurants - are a serious liablity as are the muliple vineyards; one has dinner for lunch and then dinner for dinner. But you can walk it off on the sinuous upland road that brings you to the Casa.
Reccommend? Mercy. Without any reservations
We arrived at Casa d’Oliva imagining long impossibly lazy days doing precious little in the late September sun . . . The house is even more beautiful than Betsy’s pictures show, and the setting and views over the nearby hills conspired to keep us indolent & happy by the pool.
In reality the lure of Cortona (stunning) and Gubbio (fascinating and real), along with the market in Umbertide (serious bargains even for a man!) and the drive to Lake Trasimene, proved irresistible! In all ways a splendid place and a wonderful holiday”
I stayed at Casa d'Oliva in May 2008. I loved it. It was the perfect combination of old world charm and modern amenities. The owners had just installed a new oven, which we used very often. The grounds are beautiful. The villa is very comfortable, and the kitchen is totally stocked. We loved eating outside on the back patio overlooking the olive trees and the hills. Even the road up the mountain is exciting, but recommend that you do your day trips during the day and return to the villa before night fall. Lots of information on Tuscany and Umbria. We loved Gubbio, Deruta and Cortona in particular. Would consider returning, but in June because the pool wasn't open yet. Highly recommend.
this is a truly splendid property, with wonderful facilities and a spectacular view. inside and out it is immaculate, yet you do not feel that you are intruding on someone else's home - you feel it is 'yours'.
the biggest drawback is the 15-minute drive up and down the mountain to get to and from the property. we did not dare go out to eat at night because of the trip up and down (not a problem for us - my husband is a wannabe celebrity chef and delights in creating evening gastronomy). as you have to drive everywhere, you couldn't have a drink out with your meal.
all that said, we got used to it. just be brave. it's ok. and we did go out to eat at a wonderful restaurant on a neighbouring hill and wish we'd done so earlier.
if we spoke italian and had our hiking boots, we'd have been in seventh heaven. thank you elizabeth.
