Country House Dante

A spacious country house with good restaurant on the border between Umbria and Tuscany. Very nice views in a quiet country setting, yet not far from the many attractions Tuscany and Umbria offer.

"The restaurant on the premises was ideal, good food and let’s not forget the desserts… delicious!"

The country house has 5 apartments sharing a big swimming pool. The apartments are for 2 to 6 people. The owners are born and bred in the area and transformed the family home that used to be a big thriving farm into these lovely apartments. The terrain around the countryhouse is 40 hectares, partly woodland and partly cultivated. The owners are running the restaurant themselves, turning it into a real gem.

The swimming pool is 14 by 7 meters and between 1 and 1.40 meters deep. It is surrounded by an ample sun terrace from where one can fully enjoy the nice hilly countryside surrounding the apartments.

The country house has a nice barbecue area close to all apartments. There is wifi for free.
The restaurant is open all evenings from June to September.

Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

Our holiday has been perfect. The apartment was perfect. Spacious, clean, cosy, nice terrace. The position of the swimming pool was excellent with outstanding views, well kept. The restaurant on the premises was ideal, good food and let’s not forget the desserts… delicious! After dinner at the restaurant we didn’t need to drive. We could enjoy without any problem a good glass of wine! That was fantastic. I found it a great vantage to use the washing machine before leaving. The washing machine is for general use, excellent! The owner is a very helpful and a kind person. She is always available for any question or needs. She speaks English. We felt like home. We wanted to thank Villa in Umbria for the bicycle itineraries in the neighborhood. They were very useful. Nice tours. The first one was heavy, we aren’t use to climb! We wanted to thank Villa in Umbria very much for the good service, reservation and information. This was really good for us! We have no complaints.

Keep on going with the good work. Our compliments!

Hello Saskia and Sylvia,

We had a lovely time. The apartment as well as the restaurant and swimming pool were excellent. A few minor points: the apartment is not isolated against noise from neighbors you could hear the noise of the boilers on the terrace of the apartment while people were taking a shower In short, it was a very beautiful experience.

Regards,
Koen Belgium (sotto destra)

 

We enjoyed our stay at Country House Dante. Everything was well organized.

The only minor issue of our apartment is that we were always forced to take the stairs from our apartment to the terrace to eat outside. But I think this is the only minor point I can mention and was already clear from the description on the website.

Country House Dante is centrally located, which is very comfortable to visit places in Umbria. Within 2,5 hours you are even in Rome or Florence! Tip: use your GPS.

At the restaurant one can eat really well for fair prices, good service and beautiful views.

The internet connection is somewhat unstable, but not impossible to use.

Thank you very much, we enjoyed our holiday!

Regards, Vincent from Belgium (Sopra Primo)

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

to say it brief and well, in one word it was Wonderful! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The apartment was beautiful and the location was amazing. When we arrived it was even more beautiful than we had expected. Also the reception by Luciana and Dante was very kind. Great people. Hospitality is very important to them. We really appreciated all they do and the way they manage this family business. Also the apartment was superb. Lovely spacious and very clean. Thanks to Luciana. We have booked immediately again for next year. Such a unique place! A small table in the sitting room would be nice and a coffee maker in the kitchen … but all the rest, TOP!

Best wishes, Jan and Manda

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

the villa with all facilities was excellent, we liked it. The location is splendid and the apartment excellent. The only small drawback is that we could hear our top neighbors well. This could be solved by fitting bits of cloth to the legs of the chairs.

Best wishes, Bert

From 2011:

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Friendly owners and good restaurant, excellent pool.

Only thing we regret is that in the week we stayed there were no other families with children. Our children did not have anybody to play with. However, this is not the owners fault. In brief it was excellent and we can recommend this.

Best wishes, Wilma

Hi Saskia and Willemijn,

our stay was short unfortunately … a good sign. The house was breathtaking, the views overwhelming. The owners were very correct …The furnishings were good and the house was very clean. The oven did not work and neither did the wifi. However no big deal and certainly not to say we did not have a good time. In my opinion the house is suitable for people with older children. I was with my elder son and his girlfriend and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The distance to the nearest supermarket is a bit far, but even this is not a problem. If I were asked to give a mark, I would make it 8.7 (out of 10).

I hope next year we can fly to Perugia directly. I will stay in touch and hope for another good suggestion where to stay next year.

Saluti, Fenny

The downpayment is 30% of the rental sum to be paid upon booking. The balance has to be paid one month before arrival. The security deposit is 250 euro per apartment.

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.
