A truly wonderful spot
We loved this house, it was perfect for all age groups. The house was beautifully fitted out and very comfortable. There were Plenty of shady places to sit, stunning views and extremely helpful staff. The pool was brilliant, especially the toddler bit which our grandchildren loved. Fabro nearby had an excellent co-op and we enjoyed several day trips to Orvieto. Perfect in every way.
We loved the Villa! It was spacious and clean. The staff all were pleasant and efficient. The amenities were plentiful. With 2 teenagers and 2 preteens the amenities such as pool table , swimming pool , and table tennis were great. The kitchen was very well equipped as was the dining area. Sabina was wonderful, helping us plan excursions and many other small things. I have certainly recommended the Villa to my friends and will continue to do so. Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful location in Umbria
I can only say that we had a really lovely time in Casa Bassa – I know I thoroughly enjoyed the break… !! Sabina and team were great and really helpful. I really enjoyed our winery tour with Christian also. Genuinely don’t have anything negative to say. Only small point for us was we had some elderly relatives with us – a handrail for the steps would have been helpful. The house is lovely and we really enjoyed our time there. Looking forward to next time.
La Magnolia was the best equipped self catering accommodation we have ever stayed at. One of the most impressive features was the attention that had been given to both the exterior and interior design. So many of the features were quite luxurious. The pool garden(s) and barbeque areas were much enjoyed; the views quite magnificente. The service provide by the local manager was excellent, all you would expect plus so many additional thoughtful touches. We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.
What can I say about Casa Bassa? It’s a little piece of Heaven! We stayed there during our summer holiday in August 2011 and it gave us everything we wanted from a holiday; peace and quiet in a beautiful setting but close enough to interesting places to visit and sightsee (a car is a must). The farmhouse itself is gorgeous with every mod con catered for as well as beautifully landscaped gardens, balcony terrace (with stunning panoramic views), patios and pool area. It’s an hour’s drive from Florence and about 1.5 hours from Rome so there are plenty of interesting and wonderful places to visit as well as a local town 10 mins away for buying food and other essentials. Would we go back? Definitely, we booked for 2012 before we left!
My family first stayed at Casa Bassa in July 2010 and we returned in July 2012, as we had such a restful stay in the villa. The farmhouse is sympathetically restored, retaining character but with every modern convenience. The accommodation is beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Cynthia, the housekeeper, calls in regularly to ensure that guests are comfortable and have all that they require for a relaxing stay, including a welcome gift of a bottle of the estate’s own delicious olive oil. Cynthia’s husband discreetly tends the gardens and we were lucky enough to be given the excess from the vegetable gardens to supplement our evening barbecues. The views from the terrace are stunning, the only noise being the distant bleating of the estate farm sheep. Casa Bassa is such a haven of relaxation that we had to tear ourselves away to visit Orvieto. Ideas of day trips to Rome and Florence were quickly abandoned in favour of relaxing by the pool! We have booked a return stay in August this year and cannot wait.
The villa is unbelievably beautiful, clean and well equipped . Sabina is just great, she came on time and maintained the villa as a villa like this should be. She also helped us with good visit tips around. For many years we usually book a villa for our family vacation, this one was the best! So thanks for everything and hope that next time we will take the Torre villa with the all family…
It was a wonderful, relaxing and perfect stay in your house. Very clean house, sunny weather, many hours on the bicycles, perfect pool and good dinner every day. Thank you very much.
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Bassa–the house is every bit as beautiful as the pictures, and the pool and grounds are stunning. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds and sitting areas were very comfortable. We did some exploring in nearby towns, but also spent some days just relaxing at the house and enjoying the pool and the beautiful views from the patio. Cynthia, the housekeeper, was extremely helpful–available whenever we needed her but not obtrusive. She prepared two delicious meals for us and we also hired a local cook one night and enjoyed fantastic meals in several of the nearby restaurants. We highly recommend the villa and hope to have the chance to return.
