“Thank you both so much for creating such an oasis here. We’ve enjoyed ourselves so much and haven’t felt the need to stray too far. I watched swifts diving around the pool one evening enjoyed using the herbs from the garden. Hope we can come back.”

“A wonderful stay at a beautiful house thank you so much. We’ve fallen in love with the cats and the region and hope to come back soon.”

“A wonderful haven for total relaxation. We felt at home here from the minute we received a warm welcome from Roberto, the house manager. The house and grounds have been beautifully and sympathetically restored and there are many attractive areas to sit, eat, read and relax, with stunning views. The saline pool is just lovely and we also made good use of the home cinema area, where we lay watching from comfy cushions. Great books and board games too. Although there were only two of us, this would also be a perfect place for families or groups of friends and we can’t wait to return. Thank you.”

“This is our second trip to Casa Pieratti and we have booked again for next year. Ali and Clare have restored this old farm house with beautiful simplicity. Their attention to detail and care for guests comfort and enjoyment, without fuss, is second to none. The views from the pool are stunning and we just lay about, read, swam and ate delicious food. We have never been back to the same place twice, let alone three times, but Casa Pieratti has worked its way into our souls! The delightfully affectionate neighbour’s cats are an added bonus!”

“Wonderful to share your Umbrian retreat, surrounded by the sounds of Turtle Doves, Cuckoos, and Nightjars; all so rare now in the UK. Botanical highlights the rare Lizard Orchid. Last word to the Bumble Bees, Painted Ladies and Hummingbird Moths. Magic!”

Juli and Simon – Oxford, United Kingdom. June 2019

“We had an absolutely magical stay in this fabulously comfortable and fun house. We spent hours in the pool, enjoyed the home cinema in the evenings and star gazing from the roof terrace. When we were able to tear ourselves away from the house and pool we explored the beautiful country walks that are all around the house and lead to beautiful villages or just through the hills. Citta di Castello – only ten minutes drive away – is a lovely small town with impressive churches and lots to discover around every corner. We couldn’t have asked for a better holiday and we’ll be booking for next year!”

Jessica – London, United Kingdom. August 2018

“Our second visit to beautiful Casa Pieratti. Over the past year the gardens have flourished and the poolside dry garden is looking wonderful. It’s so peaceful here it’s hard to tear yourself away but we did manage a trip to the bustling Saturday market in Città di Castello and a visit to the Burri collection in Palazzo Albizzini. The rest of the time we spent lounging by the pool, swimming, reading and enjoying the tranquillity and wonderful views. So many butterflies and amazing hummingbird hawk-moths hovering over the dry garden. Just idyllic.”

“Beautiful old house, lovingly restored with art director’s eye for rustic simplicity, has breath taking views over surrounding countryside. Well equipped kitchen. Comfy beds with Egyptian cotton linen. Rooms, including en suite bathrooms, are large and airy. Clean saline pool, bordered by lovely dry garden. Plenty of recliners and parasols by pool and in herb filled garden around the house. Al fresco dining table has wonderful view. Roof terrace for sunbathing/stargazing, home cinema, good wifi. Peaceful base for exploring the region or just chilling out. Property manager Roberto very helpful.”

“What a glorious place. I have stayed in many rentals over the years and this really is the only one where you can’t fault a thing taste-wise. It is exquisitely and lovingly set up for your holiday. Everything is elegant and comfortable and you can see that it is a real home, made with love. Only the best quality beds, sofas, sheets, equipment. The pool is lovely – saline – with a completely uninterrupted view. The planting is so pretty and the people who look after the house are so friendly, helpful and nice. Highlight: Lying in the bath and watching a projected movie with fantastic sound!”

Amy – Lewes, United Kingdom. July 2017

“I’ve visited this part of Italy many times over the years and it’s rare to find a real gem like this place. It has everything that I need for a relaxing holiday, not least the pool and the amazing views. The rooms are all airy and large, the beds are excellent and the bathrooms are well up to scratch. Everything you need is either there already or is easy to get in the nearby town. All in all, I loved it and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend – the cinema is a nice touch as well!!”

Simon – London, United Kingdom. July 2017

“We had a fantastic stay at Casa Pieratti. The house is beautiful and very well equipped and the pool is quite fantastic, with stunning views over unspoilt countryside. A fairly remote spot, which suited us perfectly, though there are good restaurants within a short drive. We will be back again for sure!”

Abigail – Skipton, United Kingdom. August 2017

“Casa Pieratti is a gem, whether you use it as a base to explore the cities of Marche and Umbria or just to relax in profoundly peaceful, beautiful countryside by a generous-sized pool set in a lovely garden. The house itself has been lovingly restored retaining the charm and dignity of a traditional farmhouse but with all modern comforts. Highly recommended.”
