Guest Ratings Overview
barry passettFrom chevy chase, md.I've been a handful of timesbest in italiathe competitive edge of la fattoria is the personal guidance and the intermingling of italians with the tourists. you get a real italian experience, rather than looking at it from the outside. and that means fabulous food, wine, laughs, parties...and seeing the incomparable sights (assisi, spoleto, etc.). Most tellingly, you visit with the people who bring you the truffles, wines, linens, cheeses, ceramics that make today's italy what it is.
PattiFrom Pittsburgh, PAI've been a handful of timesTop of my Bucket ListWe planned our stay at La Fattoria del Gelso more than a year ago. We counted down the days until Sept. 5, 2015. Our group consisted of cousins and friends who have traveled together many times. The Villa did not disappoint, except for one aspect. There was a problem with the annex, but Suzy immediately granted a rebate for the problem and our group adjusted. That done, our stay was EXCEPTIONAL! The villa was lovely and spacious. The food provided by Antonio, Peppa and Marco - 3 meals in all - was authentic, fresh, local and delicious. Our tours - Truffle hunt, dinner at Simone's in Bevagna, etc - were memorable and reasonably priced. Marco attended to us twice daily; he helped with directions, reservations, house details, Italian customs, etc. He's the Best! There were many highlights, but for me, the most memorable day was when 21 Italian relatives from Ravenna came for dinner. We were lucky, too, to be there for the Cipolla di Cannara (the Onion Fest) when 10,000 people converged into Cannara to celebrate its primary crop. It was great fun to visit the food, wine and merchant booths. The villa is in a great location. We went to Assisi, biked to the small villages, walked into town for breakfast, coffee or dinner often. Go - Enjoy - You'll love it!
