Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

we enjoyed our holiday very much. Nice weather and a comfortable house. We’ve done a lot of activities like rafting, visit Gubbio, Monte Catria by cabin lift. The house was properly supplied and equipped, spacious and private. Highly recommended! We enjoyed the two weeks in Italy. Everything was complete. Umbria is authentic and real, because of which we come back every year.

Best regards, Stijn, Saskia and the three kids, Belgium

Casa 1


we enjoyed Villa Bazzarri and we have had a nice welcome by the Bazzarri family. The property is magnificent and peaceful. Everything was perfect and we will return for sure to these very kind people.

Regards, Marina and Alain



We had a fantastic stay in Villa Bazzarri.  The position of the villa in the hills above Umbertide is magnificent. The apartment was large and spotlessly clean. The owners Patricia and Luciano who popped by from time to time made us feel more like visiting friends. Highly recommended.

Geoffrey from UK.

Bazzari: a beautiful location on top of the hill with a lovely pool. The views are breathtaking. The owner is very friendly and she speaks french well. She gave us many tips for trips in the area. Montone was a surprise for us. It is a beautiful medieval village. The apartment was very complete, typically italian and with a spacious kitchen. It would have been better to have a sign by the beginning of the road. WHen first arriving it is not very clear where the house is. The last 800 meters is not easy to drive. Future guests wil have to be aware of this. More sunbeds reflecting the number of guests would surely be appreciated. But these remarks are just minor things. For who is looking for peace and quiet this is the place to be. 

Willemijn and Saskia, thanks again for your efforts and hopefully until next year.

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

We have felt like important land owners the whole week we were at Villa Bazzarri, because we were the only guests. A beautiful house with all one could wish for, lovely views. Nice swimming pool with lovely sitting areas and it is being well maintained by the owners. Also one of the few holiday homes we ever rented where the pots and pans were big enough for 6 big eaters. We do believe guests should be warned against the last bit of road leading to the house. There are some holes so there is a risk one could be getting stuck. Owners of a brand new car will not like the bushes at the side of the road scatching the car. However, once there yu really could not wish for anything more.

Best wishes, Chantal

From 2011:

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We look back on our holiday in Umbria with great pleasure. Villa Bazzarri is the ideal spot for those looking for a holiday in peace and tranquility in the midst of nature. We felt like being large land owners! A swimming pool, an olive grove, fruit trees like peach, figs are all at your disposition. What could anybody further wish for! And all this just a short drive from a city and in the middle of a cultural region. If all goes well (the children's studies) we will be back next year. The only remark I can think of is: device a better system to keep insects out, especially the children did not like having a few wasps in the house.

Best wishes, Thierry & Isabelle and Astrid, Margot, Felix en Benoît.


we love to give some feedback on our stay in Villa Bazzarri. First of all we would like to appreciate the unbelievale position … beautiful view over the Umbrian landscape, a bit remote and therefore tranquil. Only this would be a good reason to stay here. We were lucky that we were on our own here, the other 2 apartments were empty. The road leading there, especially the last peace, was not very comfortable, but this is made up with the beauty of all once you are there. The reception was very welcoming and we could ask the owners questions, they passed by every day. They only speak Italian and she speaks some French. From Umbertide the area offers plenty of opportunities: Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Montone … beautiful towns that are really not far.

The house we had rented was very big for 6 people, furnishing is basic but we did not need more.

The only thing that could improve are the beds. These are less comfortable, especially for somebody with back problems. Also having airconditioning with warm weather would be welcome.

All in all we can recommend this holiday house and we might come back in the future.

Best wishes and maybe we will meet next time.


From 2010:

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

This has been the fifth time we rented a holiday rental in Umbria through Villainumbria. Villa Bazzarri was in all aspects a beautiful place. We had the apartment with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The last being very welcome with two teenagers. The house is very spacious with a cool spot to enjoy dinner. When it became +40C outside the inside remained agreeably cool. A big plus apart from its spaciousness is the location near the lovely Umbertide from where you can hit the highway in no time to roam all over Umbria and Tuscany. Very friendly owners who came to check upon us to ask if everything was allright. 

Small minus is the water supply. The bathroom upstairs had little water while the water in the shower downstairs had a hardtime finding its way out which sometimes flooded the bathroom. The neighbours next to us had the same problem. Maybe something to mention to the owners, we forgot to do it. Maybe it can be easily redressed. To me this was the most agreeable holiday rental we have had up to this moment. Specially recommended for those who treasure tranquility. Thank you again for the good advice in helping choosing our holiday rental. Sometimes we think of visiting another part of Italy but if it can't be done via Villainumbria we immediately change our minds.

Kind regards, Fam. L - Zoutleeuw, Belgium

From 2009:


We had a very good holiday. I was on my own, but didn't regret it. The owners were very friendly and helpful, people to count on. Mow and then they came by to check whether all was ok. The surroundings are very beautiful, views are excellent. I warmly recommend this place to everybody who just wants be away for a bit. Thank you too for your services and help, Keep up the good work!

Regards, Kristine

Hello Saskia and Willemijn,

You asked for our opinion about the house we stayed in, in Umbria. To start with I'd like to say we had a wonderful holiday and liked the small apartment we stayed in (ground floor). We enjoyed the pool, the fabulous views and the kindness of the owner and het father.

We had a top holiday, but also have a few remarks:
-we did not really enjoy the shower which has a curtain, rather then a door. The curtain sticks to the body when showering and it does not prevent the water getting out of the shower into the bathroom. It would be comfortable if the owners would install a door and get rid of the curtain.
-Fly screens would be comfortable. 
-Maybe a small television would be pleasant
-A small hose connected to the tap in the kitchen would prevent water splattering everywhere.

These are a few suggestions we hope may help the owner to make some improvements.

We rented all three apartments with friends of ours. If there would have been strangers in the other two houses, it would probably have meant an intrusion on our privacy, since the bedroom window looked out over the neighbours (from the larger house) terrace. From theit terrace they could also look down upon our terrace. For us this was no problem at all, but should there have been strangers in the larger apartment, I think I may have felt a bit uncomfortable.

With kind regards, Klaas and Greet

After our reaction to this comment we received this explanation. There are shutters in front of the windows and we always used them, but it means that it always stays rather dark in the bed room. It probably cannot be resolved differently, but i found it important to mention for future guests.

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We had a good holiday. The little house near Umbertide was stylishly furnished and the owners are very friendly. We had some good conversations in French. From the house you can make a few interesting walks and it is easy to get round and visit some of the towns in the area: Urbino and Arezzo.

A negative remark: it is hard to find the place following the directions. We found it by inserting into Google Maps the Via dei Patriotti. From there it is easy to find.

The accomodation was just fine, with a nice pool, enough outside furniture and friendly hospitable hosts. Top!

We had a very good holiday. Thank you for that!

Ineke, Niels and Luuk

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

Sorry, we did not write earlier.

Our holiday in Umbertide was wonderful! Friendly owners and lovely house. Amazing views! The mountains, olive groves, fig trees, nice private terrace near the house and lovely terrace near the pool. The house only had two rooms (living area and kitchen), but the bedroom is so large it didn't matter at all, to have to sleep here with three people. Actually we enjoyed it. Our son is only 5 and felt extra comfortable and safe sleeping with us in one room. We were lucky to be the only guests and enjoyed the extraordinary peace and quiet. The owners surprised us with some local olive oil. Unfortunately, we consumed it all already! We intensely enjoyed the holiday and made more the 400 pictures (!), using the best pictures for an album.

If I may also mention a point of criticism: We thought the living room to be extremely simple. Some tappestry and a small side table would already change its look completely. Though I am not a fan of television, but would like to recommend a small television, also because there is an absolute lack of good lights to be able to read in the evening.

But again, the holiday was wonderful, the location of the house was excellent and the owners very friendly.


Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We had a lovely time: wonderful weather, lovely surroundings and excellent views, friendly owners and a lovely house. We were in the large house where the bed room windows had fly screens. Simple ones that you can easily attach and detach yourselves, but they were very practical and helped keeping out the insects. Surely also in the other two apartments guests would appreciate these fly screens.

I personally would prefer to send a larger part of the rental sum as down payment. It would have meant less trips to the bank to get money.

We look back on two wonderful weeks.

Kind regards, Ankie

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

In June we stayed one week in the Villa Bazzarri near Umbertide. The owner picked us up at the railway station. At the house we were welcomed by his wife Patrizia. We gad a lovely week and were lucky to be the only guests! It was like staying in a private villa! We enjoyed the cherries that we were allowed to pick whenever we liked. To see the deers run through the fields, to hear the hop sing during the day and the night swallows during the night and last but not least, the fire midges flying around everywhere, it was all an experience we thoroughly enjoyed. We also made a lot of trips in the area.

I think somebody mentioned the road leading up to the house. Well, we've seen much worse! I do not excclude another stay at the Villa Bazzarri. We have been please with your advice and your help when we arrived in Umbertide and discovered we left the directions at home!

With kind regards, Hans

We have been very pleased. Both the location on top of the hill with superb views and the house itself were just fine.

The premises and the pool were checked and maintained daily. The owners are very friendly people. She even took us on a guided tour in the area and gave us an aperative. We could always ask her any information we needed. For people who like cycling, it is recommended to take a mountainbike. The last 800 metres to the house are not asfalted and you really need to be fit to cycle in this area.

Who enjoys staying in quiet rural areas will be pleased to stay here.

If we do need to mention something then we would like to recommend the owners to add cushions to the sunbeds in the garden.

We thank you for your correct organisation and hope to retrun and book a house via you.

With kind regards, Jan and Nathalie

From before 2009:

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We really enjoyed the house, especially the apartment we rented has a wonderful view and a sort of extra terrace in the form of the gras pad that adjoins the terrace. The apartment is ideally located as a base for all manner of excursions. At the tourist information we got a map wich enabled us to make hikes directly from the house, excellent! The furnishing we thought a bit sober, the owner is incredibly friendly and immediately brought us a big perculator and a sharp knife! All in all a very nice holiday and i'll make sure to recommend this place to my acquintances!

Kind regards, Lisette

Hello Saskia and Willemijn,

We had 2 wonderful weeks in both houses. Unique was that for the first week in Umbertide we were the only inhabitants. Maybe not good for you but we had the place all to ourselves. The owners were unbelievable friendly people, even picked us up on our arrival in the village to guide us to the house and after that the supermarket.

After that they even wanted to guide us to nice places to hike. Only comment we have: Put a normal fridge and a television in there, it was a bit poorly furnished.

But it was great.

Regards, Christa and Arie

The downpayment is 20% of the rental sum. The balance has to be paid one month before arrival. The security deposit is 150 euro, to be paid upon arrival.

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.
