First, the staff is very friendly and helpful and explained all of the experiences available to us as RCI members. One of our party was fairly ill the first half of the week, so we did not do the horseback riding or wine/cheese tasting. The breakfasts they provide are simple but plentiful items, and dinners there are still my favorite thing about the trip. The rooms are set up in several outer buildings that are a little drive away from the main building where you dine (and the only place you can get wifi). The rooms are very comfortable and of beautiful rustic design (but with all modern restrooms). Yes, the roads to get there are dirt, sometimes gravel, and the closest littlw town is Fabro, about a half hour drive, but it is pleasant scenery to drive by. When you book, make sure that you use the directions they give you in your confirmation email, NOT what google maps says, it'll save you alot of time, headache and wear and tear on your car. There is a close by train station there in Fabro, which can take you to all the fairly local tourist places to visit like Assisi and Florence, and it's a short drive to Orvieto, which I highly recommend. The one and only complaint i have about the entire week we were there was the mattresses in our rooms were very uncomfortable, and you could feel the springs so they definitely need an update. Other than that, go out there to enjoy the countryside and relax.

I cannot recommend this place and the amazing people who run it highly enough.
Our visit was a true adventure and every day of the week was like taking a big tasty bite of the rustic Umbrian lifestyle.
The mountain scenery and surroundings are truly breathtaking and you can spend several days just hiking and horse back riding around the area. Virginia was a fantastic guide and showed us around Orvieto, Citta della Pieve and other Umbrian villages sharing great knowledge and local tips for hidden gems.
Excellent service and friendly staff. A mouthwatering and extravagant 5 course Italian dinner was prepared with fresh local ingredients every night.
The pitch black nights call for romantic hours of star gazing with the most clear view of the milky way I have ever seen.
Go there, before the rest of the world discovers this pearl!
