Agriturismo Vista Castello

At only 15 minutes driving from Perugia is this beautiful agriturismo with view on a castle and the rolling green hills of Umbria. The 5 holiday apartments are all furnished in a modern and colourful way. The large pool is an oasis of peace where guests relax and enjoy the views.

"We appreciated not only the apartment, but also the beautiful surroundings, the quietness and the hospitality of the owners. It was more then we hoped for."

The agriturismo Vista Castello has 5 holiday apartments for 2 to 6 people. There is a large swimming pool of 18 meters long, set in a lovely, well irrigated, green lawn.

The owners moved to Umbria from the North of Italy. They bought the property and restored it into very tastefully decorated apartments, comfortable and with each an outside area. They speak English well. 

The farm produces fine quality olive oil. Furthermore the owners, real animal lovers, keep sheep, horses and several friendly dogs and two cats. The sheep and horses are not close to the apartments, whereas the dogs and cats are walking freely around the houses. Guests are welcome to bring their dog along, as long as their dog is friendly with other dogs.

The ecological swimming pool is 6 by 18 meters and between 1.40 and 1.50 meter deep. The pool is surrounded by trees and umbrellas on a very well maintained lawn, kept green by using irrigation. The whole pool area is fenced. 

The property furthermore has a small lake where you can fish (not to eat) and several walking paths for a nice stroll through the countryside. Upon request a guide can take you to the hill opposite the agriturismo where you can see well hidden waterfalls.

There is a ping pong table and wifi. 

Perugia is a 15 minutes drive (13 km). The nearest supermarket is in Montelaguardia, at 5 km. The last 3 km of the road taking you to this agriturismo is not tarred but in excellent condition.

Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

We again enjoyed Vista Castello and the Umbrian countryside, the children had great fun with the five dogs. The privacy and location are excellent. Perugia is close and you are not far from other villages. I will remember Città della Domenica, I love the old park, it's like going back to the sixties. We discovered the Trasimeno Lake, we visited the Adriatic coast (1,5 hours drive), we climbed trees in a small village nearby the Marmore Falls. In short, everything was tip top with an Italian touch!

Regards, Stijn, Saskia and the kids

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

Il Fonte - Vista Castello is beautifully situated surrounded by hills and olive trees. We liked the apartment 2 a lot, not only because of the colorful and fresh furniture, but also because of the view from the terrace. Though the neighbours of apartment 1 more or less share the same terrace you have enough privacy because the two part are separated by plants and a pergola. There is a second terrace next to the house, if anyone would want more privacy. The owners respect their clients’ privacy, but area regularly around for questions or travel tips. We did not fully appreciate the beds, but that was a minor points compared to all the positive aspects.

On the grounds one can go for a walk and visit the animals: horses, sheep, chickens and of course the dogs of the owners. There is a pond where one can fish. The pool is great and cleaned with a salt filtering system. The quietness, the space, the hospitality made up for very relaxing holiday. I’d recommend this apartment and the agriturismo in general to anyone.

Regards, Ted

Hello Willemijn and Saskia,

We appreciated not only the apartment, but also the beautiful surroundings, the quietness and the hospitality of the owners. It was more then we hoped for. We were pleasantly welcomed by Paola. In the apartment we had all kinds of food waiting for us. We actually thought they made a mistake thinking we asked for full board: wine, juce, water, milk, coffee, bread, sausage, olives, biscuits, chips, yoghurt, marmelade, nutella. And Paola also brought a home made cake.

The apartment was cool which was good during the hot summer days. It was clean, complete and cosy. The pool was just great. Very large and clean and often we had it all to ourselves. Our daughters of 16 were invited for a barbecue by the children of Marco and Paola which they obviously liked a lot.

The road to the house is fine, the dogs are indeed very friendly. The stars at night are overwhelming. There is no disturbance from lights at all. The quietness is overwhelming, one could only here sounds of nature: crickets, goats, horses, a cock, an owl and a dog in the far distance. No cars at all. 

We are very satisfied and would love to come back.

There is only one remark: the bed is very hard. We added all the covers on top of the matrass which was better.

Thank you for adding this agriturismo to your website.

Best regards, Judith

Dear ladies,

- splendid spot

- Marco is an excellent host and very helpful

In short: we are more than happy!

With best wishes, Nicholas

Hi,

Beautiful, peaceful and again a holiday with an ideal location for us. We are looking for peace, authenticity, easy people and Italian atmosphere and we all found this at Vista Castello. The owner was super friendly and gave us many tips about the area and the events.

Thank you for that.

Best wishes, Stijn and Saskia

Hi Saskia and Willemijn and Marco,

Our stay in Vista Castello was lovely!

We received a warm welcome and the owner was very friendly and his English is good. It is a good idea to arrive during day light because the road, which is well maintained, has a few sharp turns and with day light you see them better. The GPS does know the road by the way. It is situated in a very nice location close to lovely cities yet in a quiet and slightly remote spot in the hills. The grounds are well kept, as well as the swimming pool which has a pleasant temperature! We resides both in apartment 2 as well as 3 and both are elegantly furnished. very homely and cosy. Many items were there, like coffee, salt, sugar, olive oil, washing up liquid etc. We appreciated this. All windows can open and have fly screens. This way at night you can open all. We did think the matrasses were a bit hard, but this all depends on what one is used to.

From 2011:

'Vista Castello' was everything I had hoped for and more. I wanted a place that provided relaxation, beautiful vistas, and an opportunity to explore nature with my dog and allow him a place to stretch, run, and play, but also proximity to the beautiful and magical hill towns of Umbria, including Perugia. Vista Castello met the mark on both. Not only did we relax and find exploring Umbria a breeze from this locale, but the accommodations were lovely, and the family that owns and operates this agriturismo are the nicest, sweetest, and most welcoming people I've met in Italy and among the most hospitable hosts you'll find anywhere. I cannot wait to go back! This agriturismo and its proprietors have a special place in my heart and I will miss them until I return!

Hallo Willemijn en Saskia,

We have had a very good stay in Umbria, too bad it was not as long as we had planned but it was worth it just the same.

Some tips and ideas:

- arriving was real pleasure with a snack and small present and water and milk in the fridge. The apartment is very elegant however not always very practical in use, with the curtains on iron bars that one can not move. One plug for both the coffee maker as well as the micro wave. The sofa bed that makes a a lot of noise. However, no serious complaints!

The terrace is beautiful just like the view, the pool is clean and nicely lit at night and big enough. All extra's like a washing machine and extra freezer are fantastic! Ciro has been a great host for us, helpful, friendly, available and easy to reach for all our questions. Marco and Paolo found a good replacement in him!

Something I also appreciate is the fact one can decide freely how many nights to stay and not being bound by fixed weeks (often rentals are from Saturday - Saturday of Fridays).

Also your mediation, sympathy for our car trouble and contacts I appreciated very much, it feels like we have gotten to know each other and got along well and that is rather nice.

I wish you all the best and hopefully we will meet another year.

Best wishes, Margit

Saskia,

Just wanted to let you know that our stay in Vista Castello was really fantastic! Friendly people, lovely apartment and wonderful swimming pool etc. Absolutely to be recommended to others.

Best wishes, Steven

The downpayment is 30% of the rental sum.
The remainder has to be paid one month before arrival.
Upon arrival the owners ask for a security deposit of Eur 150, to be paid in cash.

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.
