Apartment Allium

In this lovely, rural estate we've experienced an authentic stay in the green hart of Italy with our small children of 2 and 3 years old. The property, which is surrounded by a large and well maintained garden, looks like a movie! Agriturismo Umbria is a good base to explore Umbria. Small hamlets, but also villages like Perugia and Assisi are easy to reach. Close to the accommodation one finds a supermarket, a bakery and a butcher. The large pool is outstanding, clean and ideal for small children. The pool is fenced and the paddle pool is perfect for little children. And last but not least: the family was very kind and helpful to us. In all we really recommend this agriturismo, and we will surely turn back to Umbria.



Dear Saskia,

We had a great time at agriturismo Umbria. A lovely place. Exactly as we expected. Personal, small, pure, hospitality, nice swimming pool and garden. No complaints. We had a lovely week and we enjoyed the surroundings.

Thank you very much for all your work.
Regards, Lizette Holland

Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

We enjoyed our stay at agriturismo Umbria. Apartment Allium was totally according to our expectations. A lovely balcony, nice kitchen and good beds. The two things that could improve is the shower and the material in the kitchen. The position of the agriturismo is excellent, surrounded by sunflower fields and cypress trees. The other advantage is that you can visit easily other nice villages like Perugia and Assisi. Recommended! But if you want to drive further, also Spoleto and Gubbio are worth visiting. We even went to Rome one day. First you drive to Orte. From there you take the train to the city centre (40 min). A very nice experience! Our 3 year old daughter liked traveling by train! When we decide to return to Umbria, we will definitely return to this agriturismo.

Thanks for all and best wishes!
Greetings, Niels, Loes and Linn Holland

Apartment Salvia.

We were very satisfied with the large swimming pool and the shower. Tip: maybe a microwave will be useful (there is also an oven which works well).
Willy Holland


Agriturismo Umbria is quietly situated, spacious and clean. A good place to lay back and rest after having visited one of the many sights of Umbria. (A car is a must). The apartments are not completely soundproof, but we did not have neighbours during our stay. The kitchen equipment is just enough. The large garden with pool has many places to relax without being too close to other guests.

With kind regards, Joep (apartment Rosmarinus)

Dear Willemijn & Saskia,

Our holiday at the Agriturismo Umbria was excellent. The owners welcomed us in a friendly manner and we felt at home each day we were there. The garden and its pool is just wonderful and it is pleasant to have different possibilities to sit around in the garden. We would surely recommend the Agriturismo Umbria to anyone.

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

We enjoyed our holiday on Umbria. Our apartment in Pieve di Castello was well situated and we were received by the friendly owners Anna and her son Dario. Rosmarinus is large enough for 4 adults and has large windows ensuring a lot of light in the house. The windows could be open and therefore we did not need to use the airconditioning. The garden and the pool are both well kept.

We did experience some noice from the neighbours and we could have done with some more space in the cupboards of the kitchen. For 4 adults there is not enough space to comfortably sit (the settee is too small for 4).

With kind regards, Bart

From 2012:

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

We have enjoyed our stay in Agriturismo Umbria. The location is beautifully situated, the accommodation fantastically beautiful and the reception by the family was friendly.The apartment was spacious for the three of us and all was well kept and clean. The whole complex is well maintained and orderly. Outside nothing is missing; the many seating areas in the shade, beautiful recliners, a lovely and clean pool and a perfect barbecue. We were also very lucky with the other guests. We have had a nice time together and the last evening we all had dinner together with the owners. The son Dario speaks English well, so that came in handy, he is also hospitable and friendly.

In short, it was perfect and we can recommend this agriturismo to all who would like to visit the beautiful Umbria.

Best wishes and thanks for your services! Bastiaan

We had a real good time. Beautiful apartment and also area. We have seen a lot. The swimming pool and garden are also wonderful and very well kept. We would have enjoyed receiving more information about the area (in an info map). This is certainly a place to return to, still loads to explore. J.B.

From 2011:

We enjoyed all aspects of our stay. Excellent host, very helpful, friendly and interested. We really could not believe we were invited for a dinner. The farm is ideally situated. The grounds have many lovely sitting areas. Really good with children. The pool is nice and clean.

All really excellent. No comments other than that.
Best wishes, Nora

Dear ladies,

our stay was really the best! The farm is very beautiful and the apartment was well taken care of and clean. The owners were extremely friendly. They even organized a glass of prosecco bubbles for our wedding anniversary!



From 2010:

We had a super holiday, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Unfortunately they don't make wine themselves anymore but their son took us personally to a wine tasting in Spina.

Regards and thanks, Fam. v. L.

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We stayed near Deruta (Pieve del castello) and were overjoyed with our accommodation and surroundings. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts, a tip top residence and lovely garden with a big and proper pool. Very quiet surroundings. Absolutely recommended.

Kind regards, R. D.

From 2009: 

Dear Saskia and Willemijn, 

Also this year we had a fantastic holiday. We can oly have positive comments about our stay at Agriturismo Umbria. The apartment was practical and very stylish. WE stayed at the ground floor. 

The owners are helpful and friendly. It was the second time we went and maybe there will be a third time. Our children (2 and 7) also enjoyed it a lot. 

Regards, Iris 

Dear Saskia & Willemijn, 

Last summer we stayed at two different agriturismos, one in Tuscany and one in Umbria. We had ample opportunity to compare the two. Our remarks and suggestions for the Agriturismo Umbria: 

Positive aspects: 
- very friendly, 
- nice rooms, 
- good pool with good deckchairs 
- dinner on the last evening (though we did understand that the owners do not always do this, due to a lack of time) 

In Tuscany we did niot have a dinner but a drink on one of the evenings. Maybe the owners of Agriturismo Umbria, rather then make a complete dinner, they can offer drinks with some local delicacies to taste. And not on the last day, but one of the first days in the week. That way guests can get to know each other in an informal way. 

Negative aspects: 

- The price wasn't all inclusive. Having to pay in cash for cleaning and airco I find quite annoying. As if you have a choice. 
- Near the pool there were rules regarding the use of the pool, opening times (9.30 am -20.00 pm) and swimming caps were given to all guests. 
- Final payment can only be done in cash, not with credit card. 
- Terraces in the garden: of the 5 places to sit, there was only one with a decent table and chairs. Two terraces had iron tables and chiars, but it seemed more for the show then for comfort. The wooden table with wooden benches seemed to fragile to us. 
- We missed a few small things that we did have in Tuscany: flowers in a vase, cold white wine in the fridge, home made marmelade. On our last day in Umbria we heard that the owners have their own wine and watermelons. It would be nice if they'd offer some to their guests. To find flowers in the area to put in a vase, can't be toot difficult. 

In Umbria the owners were very correct and friendly but we missed the extra touch. It was all quite formal. 

I hope my remarks will help you with your work. 

Regards, Beata 

Reaction Villa in Umbria: regarding the pool regulations - within a few years time unfortunately all agriturismi in Umbria will have to comply with new regional rules for the use of public pools which also means providing swimming caps and having entrance hours, apart from many other, for guests, rather annoying regulations. 

Dear Saskia and Willemijn, 

Our stay n Umbria has been very good, apart from the weather, but nobody can help that. 

We were the only guests and had the garden and the pool for ourselves. The apartment was good and as we expected. The owners who popped by now and then were friendly and helpful. The sons speak english which made the communication somewhat easier. 

The only but would be that we would have enjoyed a bit more information about restaurants in the area. We did leave some addresses behind for future guests. 

Apart from this, nothing but compliments. 

With kind regards, Elly 

Hi Willemijn, 

We had a lovely holiday: a good apartment, nice pool and enough privacy thank to the different terraces. 

Wonderful location! We enjoyed it all a lot and have lived our holiday with a "Carpe Diem feeling"! 

A small remark would be that Rita asked us at the beginning of our holiday whether we wanted to use the air conditioning. We said yes, but probably not immediately. As a result we did not have any airco the rest of the week. It took 4 days to get hold of the remote control (owners passed by when we were not there and vice versa) and we had to pay extra for using it the last two days. We thought it was included in the price, hence our delusion. 

Apart from that, they were very friendly hosts. 

Regards, Kathleen 

Dear Saskia and Willemijn, 

This year we rented two apartments at the Agriturismo Umbria in Pieve di Castello, near Marsciano. It was our second time here, now with our adult children. We enjoy the peace and quiet, the nice surroundings, the good apartments and the friendly owners. We warmly recommend the place to friends and family. 

Regards, Hilde and Luc 

Dear Saskia and Willemijn, 

We very much enjoyed our holiday. The accommodation is good. Just a pity we do not speak italian and couldn't communicate with the owners. 

We were completely alone and imagined we owned the place! In short: very quiet and a lot of time relaxing! The inventory of the kitchen was good and brand new. Our terrace had a table and some comfortable chairs. The only but is the mattrass on the double bed. I think it needs to be substituted. 

With kind regards, Thijs and Ella 

Hi Saskia, 

I just wanted to drop you a quick review of our recent stay in Agriturismo Umbria. 

We really couldn't fault the actual accommodation, very clean, very comfortable and even better than the images on the website. The gardens and pool were fantastic and the kids really enjoyed them, especially the new swings and the table tennis table. WiFi is a big plus and should be advertised on the site. 

The 1st week was definitely better than the 2nd and that was mainly due to the other guests who were with us. During the 2nd week two more Italian families arrived and when they got together they took over the place and made it quite uncomfortable. They also had their own guests turn up for various days and we felt that that was not appropriate, we had booked the apartment to be semi private not open to visitors. We did speak to the owners about it but towards the end of the week we felt that it was Italians vs the English and to some extent we were quite pleased to be coming home. There was considerable smoking by the Italians and this filled the common areas with smoke, right outside our apartment door, not something we were happy about as non-smokers. 

If you want to feed anything back to the owners it should be that guests should not have guests and smoking should be restricted to the garden area and nowhere near the accommodation. 

Thanks for your help. All the best, Alex 

Dear Saskia and Willemijn, 

We were welcomed very kindly and were immediately invited for dinner with a group of italians. We have been very pleased with the apartment, the facilities and the service of the owners. A bit more privacy outside would be recommendable, but the owners mentioned they were looking into ways to improve that. 

With kind regards, Martijn 

Hello Saskia and Willemijn, 

We loved our holiday, despite of the extreme heat&ldots; 

The accommodation was in a lovely area, it was clean and well furnished. There is a good pool! 

We would have loved a bit more contact with the owners to get some more information about the area. They do not live on the premises and speak only italian, so it was hard to establish a good contact. 

Only by the end of the week at Agriturismo Umbria we realized there was air conditioning in the apartment. It would have been nice if the owners would have mentioned it upon arrival. 

Apart from that it was all ok. 

Kind regards and maybe until next time, Marianne 

From before 2009: 

We're back home and i wanted to let you know that we were pleased with everything. 

Regards, Erwin 

Dear Saskia and Willemijn, 

We don't have any specific comments to be made on our accommodations. We liked it. Our house on the ground flour was very nice, great to be able to sit outdoors under the stone coverage, even when it rained. 

Regards, Lydia 

Hello Willemijn, 

We have enjoyed our holiday in Tuscany and Umbria. We already knew Tuscany but didn't know about Umbria and it really pleased us. Also the agriturismo in Umbria.

Unfortunately we have missed the Umbria evening because my wife got very sick and didn't feel like going out. She has been pregnant for 3,5 months and everything is fine but sometimes she can get very sick. We felt bad about canceling at the last moment. Who knows there might come another time in which we visit Umbria. 

Regards, Alexander 

Dear Saskia and Willemijn, 

We spent a lovely week and the surroundings, garden and swimming pool are fabulous. We also liked the location, easy to reach etc. We liked the attentive owners very much. 

(i speak italian, which was necessary, but you already pointed this out in your covering email!) 

We thought it lovely that the apartment had a covered terrace. A bit small for four people but it does give this apartment an extra dimension. The only drawback was the mattress of the double bed. (there was a dip and it was deformed, put in other words, I think it needs to be replaced!) I hope this information is helpful, but a place to be fully recommended for anyone who would like to visit Umbria. 

Kind regards, Dymph 

Hello Willemijn, 

It seems like it already has been quite a while (17 May). We really liked it only is it noisy. On the last night we had very noisy neighbours (an italian pair with two children) which were yelling and shrieking till after 10.00. We thought to ourselves ' imagine having them next to you for a week'. But for us it was just one night. 

Besides that, everything fine. 

Regards and thanks, Jacques & Irene 

We have already been back for a couple of weeks but I still would like to let you know that we had a great time in Agriturismo Umbrie! The weather did change for the best quite fast and we were able to enjoy life outdoors. 

We had a tremendous experience which I would like to share with you. Maybe you can pass it on as a tip to other guests. 

A few times we had a really great meal at La Maison D& D in San Valentino della Collina (wich is very nearby) The first time there was no one but everything was done to accomodate us. Nicely laid table in the big garden and soon one great dish after the other started emerging. We ended up eating there 5 or 6 times for very moderate prices. We never saw a menu and just let Elena's culinary artistry surprise us. On fridays, saturdays and sundays a real wood-fired pizza oven is put into action. I never had such a great pizza. Our daughter was allowed to knead the pizza dough. The family is very sweet and warm they loved our 4 your old daughter Luna. When I asked if I could be taught some of their cooking skills there was very positive response. In the end I spent three days learning how to prepare real authentic italian dishes, really fantastic. Getting to know Elena, her husband Renato and sons Davide and Danilo really gave our holiday in Umbria surplus value. We hold them close to our hearts. A real recommendation for other holiday-makers. 

Kind regards, Lydia

The downpayment is 30% of the rental sum. 
The balance can be paid one month before arrival. 
The security deposit is 150 euro.

In Italy the tourism tax has been introduced. Each town can decide independently whether to apply this tax. It is important to keep in mind that the prices on our website do NOT include the tourism tax. Where we received confirmation from house owners that they have to ask for this tax, it is written underneath the price table.

Villa in Umbria is an intermediary and as such rents out holiday homes and apartments on behalf of their owners. When you book we will be sending an agreement in which you will find the bank details for the down payment and the final payment.

We know each vacation rental personally and also the owners of all the holiday rentals we have in our portfolio.

You can read more about us on the 'About Villa in Umbria' page.
