I Nani di Valfabbrica

Between Valfabbrica and Casacastalda, a very well maintained vacation rental is looking out over some typical green Umbrian hills. Two vacation homes, each with two bedrooms and one bathroom, sharing a lovely swimming pool.

"The facilities were excellent. It is a lovely place and the pool is super. We would definitely recommend it to others and would go there again ourselves."

This vacation rental in the Eastern part of Umbria, between Valfabbrica and Casacastalda, has been finished recently. It offers comfortable houses that can be rented together for a group of eight, or separately for families of maximum 4.  

The houses overlook the fenced pool, situated on a lower level and beyond the pool one sees the beautiful Umbrian hills. The pool is 11 by 5 meters and from 1.10 to 1.50 meters deep. This is an ecological swimming pool. Next to the pool one finds a small play area for children which is also fenced and has a table tennis table.

There are solar panels for electricity generation on the roof of the main house. Each house has a covered terrace with a wooden table and benches. There are 4 good mountain bikes guests can use for free. There is free wifi.

The owners themselves live in the first floor apartment of the main house. This is a certified organic farm producing organic olive oil, a delicious honey and truffles are found on the premises. The owners also keep a vegetable garden and have some chickens.

We had a lovely stay. The family were really welcoming and friendly and very helpful. We really enjoyed the oil tasting evening. The food was fantastic as was the oil. It was also lovely to talk to the extended family and gather more information on the region. The recommendations were excellent and they couldn't have been more helpful. The facilities were excellent. It is a lovely place and the pool is super. We would definitely recommend it to others and would go there again ourselves. 

The kitchen was very well equipped and it was noticed we did not have wine glasses and got some for us. One tiny point - it would help if there were a supply of dishwasher powder, cleaning cloths, soaps etc, even if only a small amount as it was a bit of a pain to have to go and buy them and we didn't like to say anything. It was a really lovely place to stay and I can thoroughly recommend it to all.

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

We have been very content with the house - spacious, well kept and all appliances worked well. The grounds with splendid views, tranquil, good pool. The owners are helpful and the fresh eggs, vegetables and fruit from the garden just made it all even better.

With kind regards, Rob

Hi Willemijn and Saskia,

We had a TERRIFIC holiday at i Nani di Valfabbrica. We stayed in the smaller house from 19/7/13 to 10/8/13. The house with its hogh ceiling is cosy and comnfortable, the garden with olive and fruit trees, roses, and much more is very well kept and the veiws over the Umbrian hills are breathtaking. The pool is cleaned with a salt system which we appreciated and it also was bog enough for two families. The owner Giulio and hos wife Valeria took great care of us offering the fruit and vegetables from the garden, home made cake and sambuca. They also used the first floor of the main house, but this did not disturb us at all.
The smaller house is large enough for 2 adults and 2 children and we kept it cool by keeping everuthing cloes on the hottest hours of the day. We thought the matrasses were a bit hard. The kitchen is well equipped and also has a dishwasher. There is a washing machine in the bathroom. Both appliances worked well. We appreciated the fly screens for all windows. Outside there are enough tables and chairs. We enjoyed several lunches near the pool underneath the peach trees. Around the pool there are several sunbeds and one can enjoy the sun until late afternoon. There also is a large barbecue on the premises.
We got our groceries in Valfabbrica which is at 6 kms via a winding road through the mountains. At 3 kms the other direction is Casacastalda where we got fresh bread in the morning. There also is a good butcher and a small grocery shop. We visited places like: Assisi (25 min.), Gubbio (20 min.), Perugia (30 min.), Lago di Trasimeno (45 min.), Orvieto (75 min.), the Marmore waterfall (90 min.). From the house it takes about 2 hrs to get to Rome and if you like a day at the sea: Senigallia is at 1 hr and 20 minutes driving. At I Nani di Valfabbrica one can really enjoy the Umbrian peace and quietness, nature and culture. In other words: we would like to go back straight away!

With kind regards, Marja

The downpayment is 30% of the rental sum. The remainder has to be paid one month prior to arrival. Upon arrival there is a security deposit of Eur 150 per apartment 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.
