      Overall, a nice property but lacking in details

      Overall, the property was as described and would be considered a 3.5 out of 5 (but those opinion varied in my group from 1 to 4). The location, however, was more remote than the description - I didn't consider this a problem, but the property is down a gravel road that is over a mile long. The larger issue is that the property manager does not have some details figured out very well (e.g., garbage removal is not done and animals got into the garbage one night) and this stressed out some of my guests. Also, the maintenance on the place is not bad, but needs some work (e.g., leaking shower, windows were very dirty, etc.). Overall, it is a good place for a large group - -but do not expect it to be without "quirks". I did not find this surprising as I have traveled quite a bit in Europe, but others were disappointed in the condition and the lack of attention to details. Kitchen was well stocked and most little amenities were there. Wifi was good. Pool was good as well.

      5/5 Excellent

        Hidden gem uncovered! Perfect for a group vacation.

        Originally we wanted to stay in a villa in the Tuscan countryside. Fortunately we decided to make the extra effort to go that little bit further to Umbria and looking back it was a great decision. Our party was quite large (14) but the Vallocchia Villa was perfect for us. Being musicians it was important to us that we had the whole place to ourselves. We barbequed, we swam in the pool, we jammed, we cooked, we read and most of all, we chilled. Vallochia gave us the ability to do all we wanted...or nothing at all. Some of us broke away for day trips to Spello, Montefalco, Assisi and Rome. Tip: check out Restaurant Sabatini in Spoleto. The food and service were excellent! Upon arrival to Spoleto we were greeted at the meeting point by Laurie, who then led us to the property. The Villa itself was fabulous. Set atop a hill in the Spoleto countryside we had a gorgeous view to the north of Spoleto and on the south/east side the ridge line of the green hills forming part of the central Appenine mountain range. The house was well equipped with almost everything a group such as ours needs to prepare meals for each other with plenty of pots, pans, crockery, utinsels, and serving bowls and dishes. There were a few small issues but a quick call to Laurie and the owner Enrique resolved those almost immediately. We very much appreciated their customer oriented approach to ensuring our stay was stress free and enjoyable. As there was no AC we were a little anxious beforehand that we would be sweltering in the heat. We did not miss AC at all. The Villa, with its shutter system remained cool throughout the week. The temperature averaged 30°C for the 7 days we were there and when the right windows were opened or closed the breeze and thick walls of the buildings kept us cool. We were treated with a family of wild boar passing through the property early one morning as well as seeing a badger scurry across the private road upon returning from one of our day trips to a nearby town. On the property by the pool there is a large fig tree which we were able to pick fresh figs each day, as well as blackberries just behind the barbeque. The pool was wonderful. Exactly what we had hoped for. Tip though: be sure to bring plenty of insect repellent. The horseflies and mozzies can be nasty. All in all we had a wonderful stay in Vallochia Villa and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an out of the way relaxing stay in a charming Italian Villa.

        5/5 Excellent

          wonderful position with a great pool and good accommodation

          This year our family of 15 stayed at Spoleto. What a great villa with a wonderful pool. Out of the town and very quiet. The cooker and fridge in the big house were a bit of a challenge but in no way spoilt our stay. The grandchildren loved the pool and the holiday for all of us was over too quickly. A great location with lots of things to do and places to visit.

          4/5 Good

            Sehr freistehende einsame Villa, für große Gruppen perfekt

            Der Hausbesitzer ist sehr entspannt und hilfsbereit, wir hatten am ersten Tag einen Stromausfall und kein warmes Wasser, aber nach einem kruzen Anruf kam er mit einem Elektriker vorbei und hat das ganze schnell behoben. Es gibt einen großen tiefen Pool mit Sprungbrett, der alle 2 Tage vom Besitzer gereinigt wurde. Die ganze Anlage ist sehr weitläufige , daher ist laute Musik auch noch spät am Abend überhaupt kein Problem da. Wir haben uns als Gruppe ohne großes Vorwissen an den Steinofengrill gewagt und selber Pizza gemacht, was zwar mit etwas Aufwand verbunden ist, sich aber absolut ausgezahlt hat. Es fehlten leider große Besen und Sachen wie ein Wischmop, daher war es etwas aufwändig so ein großes Haus sauber zu halten. Die Einrichtung der Küche ist etwas runtergekommen und ein paar mehr große Kochutensilien, wie große Töpfe oder Pfannen wären praktisch gewesen, wenn man für eine große Gruppe kochen will. Die Küche in der kleineren Villa hat eine sehr schlechte Ausstattung und ist und zum Kochen kaum geeignet, wir haben dort nur den Kühlschrank für Getränke genutzt. Aber insgesamt hatten wir eine sehr schöne Zeit dort und haben es vorallem genossen, dass die Villa extrem freistehend ist und man sich auch abends mit der Lautstärke von der Musik keine Sorgen mit den Nachbarn machen muss.

              Goede prijs-/kwaliteitverhouding

              Pluspunten: - genoeg ruimte voor het gezelschap (21 personen) - groot zwembad - genoeg badkamers - goede prijs-/kwaliteitverhouding - goede check op kwaliteit zwembadwater - goede en snelle communicatie met Norma en Laurie Minpunten: - geen airco: zelf extra ventilator aangeschaft omdat deze niet op iedere slaapkamer aanwezig waren - te weinig douchecabines, in bad douchen is niet erg praktisch voor volwassenen - slechte bedden/matrassen - huis was bij aankomst niet erg schoon - te weinig handdoeken - parasols en (lig)bedden/stoeltjes niet meer veilig / bruikbaar - sommigen toe aan vervanging - kapotte tegels rondom zwembad (niet kindveilig)
