Christelle L., Date of stay August 2015

Un grand merci à Béatrice! Le séjour était fantastique! Un endroit enchanteur, tout était parfait! Beaucoup de goût, les finitions et détails dans toute la propriété. Nous avons loués le loft, tout est calme, et zen... Je recommande cet endroit, Béatrice est discrète mais présente si besoin! Ma fille a même pré nommé cet endroit, le Paradis! Ca veut tout dire!

 

Simona A., Date of stay June 2015 

Tre giorni meravigliosi; un posto incantevole e incantato dove bastano pochi minuti per immergersi nell'atmosfera serena di questo luogo e dimenticare lo stress della città. Rose, menta e lavanda ti accolgono con i loro colori e profumi così come ci ha accolto la signora Beatrice sempre gentile e disponibile. La torre è bellissima, curata e arredata in modo attento ed elegante. La piscina è attrezzata con lettini ed ombrelloni, il giardino ha uno splendido gazebo in legno dove poter mangiare e anche un barbecue. Non manca proprio nulla e la pace e il riposo sono assolutamente garantiti. Brava Beatrice, hai fatto un capolavoro !!

 

Bianca D., Date of stay June 2015 - Mon séjour à "Torre del Falco"

J'ai vécu une de mes plus belles vacances à Spoleto chez Beatrice. Le site est magnifique. Vous avez une vue époustouflante sur les montagnes. L'endroit très tranquille, vous n'entendez rien. Les lieux sont très bien entretenu et propre. L'accueuil est des plus chaleureux. Beatrice est sur place pour s'assurer que tout soit parfait mais ne vous importune aucunement. Nous avons resté dans le Falconner qui était parfait pour nous 3. Deux chambres avec salles de bain complètes dans chacunes. Terrasse privée avec BBQ au bois. Les déjeuners devant la montagne étaient tellement agréables ! Le village est à proximité et peu même se marcher. Il y a 2 supermarchés où vous trouvez de tout. Il y a beaucoup à visiter à Spoleto. J'ai adoré "Torre del Falco". Je vous le recommande fortement !

 

Toine H., Date of stay August 2015 - Prachtige sfeervolle locatie

Wat een prachtige plek, en een klein maar heel gezellig huisje. Voor het huisje een klein prive terras waar je gezellig kunt zitten met uitzicht op het grote zwembad. Bij het zwembad zijn voldoende relax stoelen voor iedereen. Er is een bbq en fietsen te gebruiken. Overal internet dus ook bij het zwembad. Er liggen tips voor goede restaurants in de buurt en die zijn zeker de moeite waard. Eigenares woont ook op het perceel maar laat je helemaal vrij. Echt een topvakantie.

 

Joanna A., Date of stay July 2014 - Stunning!

Torre del Falco is even more beautiful than the photos. We stayed in the Falconer for one week, it is a beautiful property which has clearly been thoughtfully furnished and decorated to a very high and luxurious standard, we loved the private garden which have stunning views across the vally. The grounds are perfectly manicured, beautiful scented flowers and lots of jasmine, the pool was a delight with various seating and sun-beds. Beatrice was very welcoming and helpful during our stay and we will definitely be returning. If you're thinking of booking this, don't hesitate, it's fabulous.

 

Andrew Mac Leod, Date of stay June 2014

Words almost literally can not describe how fantastic this property is. The views, the pool, the quiet, it was perfect. We were 7 adults and none of us wanted to leave. Beatrice is an excellent host. She was extremely responsive and helpful - the best kind of Airbnb host. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. It really does need to be experienced.
 

Gillian, Date of stay July 2014 - Fabulous apartment, great pool.

We stayed in the two-bedroom apartment. It was fabulous, spotlessly clean, very well maintained and a lovely private patio to sit outside. The pool was amazing, really big with lots of pool furniture to laze about. A first class property; I would recommend highly. The friendly owner lives on site with sweet cats.

 

Mark Scheerboom, Date of stay June 2014

We had the most excellent stay at Torre del Falco. We stayed for one week in "the Nest" a really cosy cottage but big enough for me, my wife and our two year old daughter. The cottage was very clean, well furnished and equipped with everything we needed. The property has a huge and beautiful rose garden with a nice big pool. It is well located on a peaceful hill with a great view and no other buildings, but only five minutes away from the centre of Spoleto. As for Beatrice: She was a very nice host and helped us with all the information we needed. We will definitely come back one day! Mark, Adeline & Féline
 

Heinrich H. , DE  - Date of Stay 24 Aug 2013

Hi all, we are a family of 4 and we stayed at the Tower during the last week in August. As probably many people have experienced often pictures are more promising then reality. In our case it was absolutely the contrary! Pictures cannot grasp the stunning and unique atmosphere of this exceptional location. Not only that the rooms and everything inside this tower gives proof of the tasteful arrangements of the whole facility; it is this atmosphere which made our stay such a great experience. This is just a wonderfull place where one can relax and get down again from stressfull times to find the inner balance. Even our "modern" kids were thrilled by the experience of staying at this great place. We would have loved to extend our stay but Beatrice's place was already booked. Beatrice is a wonderful host who has created one of these rare locations where you can find the "muse" to write a book or create art-work. I can highly recommend te Tower as well as the Falcon for families and groups of people who want to have a nice and relaxing break!

 

Fabienne Moreau - Date of Stay 26 June 2009 - Perfect accomodation in a perfect landscape.

The villa was perfect and exactly like on the pictures - wonderful renovated. We all had enough place (12 persons), the pool was great and really big. The garden is very pleasant and smells like rosmarin! We had a wonderful time there. Thanks beatrice for your kindness. Fabienne

 

M. Bouchier - Date of Stay 20 September 2008 - Lovely Torre del Falco

We had a wonderful stay in the lovely Torre del Falco. In need of r&r we settled seamlessly into its beautiful environment. The attention to detail, spectacular setting and proximity to the lovely Spoleto have made it a must to revisit. Thank you Beatrice.

 

Jacinta Hendrick - Date of Stay 07 May 2011 - A Wonderful Time at "The Falconer"

In mid May we stayed at the Falconer 2 bedroom villa and had a very enjoyable stay. The villa is immaculate, with 2 en suite rooms, and very comfortable with plenty of facilities for home 
cooking. Each morning we enjoyed breakfast outside and views of the valley below in the tranquil surrondings of the rose filled garden. The pool was cleaned daily and is perfect for cooling off on hot afternoons. The villa is home to several cats and a beautiful minitaure pony called Matilde - she will greet you in her paddock on your return each evening! Spoletto is a lovely town with several quality restaurants and a perfect base to explore the surrounding Umbrian countryside. Your host Beatrice will deal with any queries and provide good advice for local interests.Visiting Umbria? the Falconer is a perfect place to stay!
 

Sarah C. , UK - Date of Stay 08 September 2008 - Perfect for a relaxing holiday

Perfect for a relaxing holiday, ideally located close to the Town of Spoleto but on a private and quiet hillside. Both the Tower and the nest are furnished to a high standard. The jewel in the crown of this property is the pool and gardens, perfect for cooling off and relaxing after a days sightseeing.
 

A Google User reviewed 3 years ago - Overall Excellent

It is always a bit scary to reserve a holiday on the internet and - despite the website and the pictures - you are never sure what you will find but what a surprise when we arrived in Torre del Falco. It exceeded even our most wild expectations We immediately fell in love with the beautifully restored tower, the garden and the swimming pool, not to forget the cherry tree. The house is very spacious and furnished with a lot of loving details. A cosy homely sittingplace, bright airy rooms, immaculately clean bathrooms and the most wonderful of all terraces on top of the tower...Beatrice came in every day to check if everything ok and tried to fulfill even our smallest wishes. After a day of roaming the countryside, it felt like home when we saw our tower ! We will be back, definitely

 

Graham Walkinshow - Date of stay 15 June 2013 - Staying at the Falconer

Staying with Bea at The Falconer was a magical experience!This is a very special holiday retreat. The apartment is stylish and spotlesslyclean with the most beautiful terrace filled with fragrance from theStephanosis and the abundance of roses. The views from the terrace arespectacular; we enjoyed sitting by the barbecue with a glass of wine watchingthe sunset over the far hills. The pool is wonderful - surrounded by more rosegardens. When we returned home we immediately went to buy roses for our gardeninspired by Bea! Spoleto is an interesting historical town very worth exploringand the local region is full of old hill-top towns equal to any in Tuscany. TheNational Park is very accessible; it is remote and tranquil and pretty withsurprising historical churches and monasteries tucked away off the beatentrack. Staying with Bea and her family of cats is like staying with an oldfriend who has nothing but your own enjoyment in mind. Rest at the pool; enjoylocal restaurants; wander further afield even to Rome on the train and thenreturn to the friendly support of your host. A holiday destination not to be missed!!

 

Tanya A. - Date of stay 27 July 2013 - A stunning property in a beautiful location. 

The property was beautifully clean and maintained and thegrounds were tended with great care by Bea, the lovely owner. I woulddefinitely recommend it to friends. The salt water pool was much nicer than theusual chlorine treated pools. It was an excellent base to explore Umbria'sbeautiful countryside, towns and villages. There is plenty to do with rafting,wine tasting, walking, riding as well as enjoying the fabulous food and wine ofthe area in the many friendly, well priced, local restaurants. A great holiday!

 

Goran K., Date of stay August 2015 

We were two families of a total of 10 pp that visited "Torre del Falco" in august 2015. Our kids range 8-17 yrs. The Tower is a fantastic place and Beatrice is an even more fantastic host. The house is very comfortable and the different floors makes it easy to stay several families with good privacy. The garden and pool area leaves nothing to wish for, beautiful flowers, a very useful outdoor dining place and a very large and fresh pool. It is a stretchy walk (or 5 min drive) down to Spoleto but well worth it. The town is great with interesting things to see, good restaurants and is very beautiful with roman-midieval architecture. The surroundings are nice for walking, biking and of course sight-seeing. Beatrice was very helpful and a fantastic person. She helped us organize as well catering, tips on excursions as well as fixing practical stuff that we needed help with. I give the Tower and Beatrice my warmest recommendations for families or anyone else. You will have a great time. We already long to go back!

 

Anne T., Date of stay August 2015 - Charming property with stunning views

Our group of 12 stayed in the Tower and we were very happy with our choice. Staying in such a beautiful and unusual property certainly helped to make our holiday. The Tower is beautifully decorated and furnished and very well maintained - the photographs on the website are a true reflection of its condition. The main kitchen on the ground floor is large and very well equipped - there is everything you need and more. There's also a handy small kitchen on top floor which leads to the Terrace. The terrace has stunning views and was well used by us for both breakfast and sundowners. I noticed another review said the rooftop terrace couldn't be used because there was no shade - this has been rectified and the table is shaded. The property's grounds are truly beautiful - a lot of care and attention is obviously devoted to the garden area. The pool is large and great for lap swimming - great for us. There is a large outdoor table, a double BBQ and the garden is beautifully lit in the evening - wonderful for evening meals. The property is a five minutes (maybe less) drive from Spoleto. It is walkable, although as the property is on a hill, the road is winding and largely unlit - so the walk is less inviting in the peak of summer or at night. Spoleto itself is enchanting, as well as having all the facilities you need and there are just so many places to visit in the area that we will have to go back again to explore more. We also managed a trip to Rome, which only took an hour and a half by train from Spoleto. Beatrice, the owner of the property, was a great host. From our initial contact with her and throughout our stay she was both professional and very helpful. She answered all our initial queries promptly and during our stay she recommended and booked restaurants for us and had great suggestions for days out and things to do. She can also arrange a local cook to prepare meals for you - in the end we ran out of time to do this but would be on my list at another visit. Beatrice lives in a property in the grounds but was very discreet throughout our stay. We had a fabulous holiday thanks to Beatrice, her beautiful property and the surrounding area. It is definitely worth a return visit.

 

Magdalena F., Date of stay August 2015


Wunderschönes Anwesen in jedem Detail. Sehr stilvoll, klassisch italienisch, hochwertige Materialen (Badezimmer, Küche, Wohnzimmer). Zudem gemütlich. Beatrice ist immer in der Nähe, um hilfreiche Tipps zu geben, "belästigt" aber nie, wenn man einfach gemütlich am Pool liegen will - also wirklich dezent und präsent. Wunderschöner Garten, sehr sehr sauber, Salzwasserpool (brennt nicht, nur dezent salzig, fühlt sich sauberer an als Chlorwasser), sehr schöne Landschaft. Die historische Ortschaft Spoleto ist in 10 Minuten zu erreichen und unbedingt einen Besuch wert - sehr schöne Bauten, auf den Plätzen sehr authentisch zum Cafetrinken, Aperol genießen, Pizza essen und einfach das Dolce Vita genießen. Zwei Wochen nach dem Urlaub vermissen wir ihn schon sehr!
 

Dean S., Date of stay September 2015

We had a wonderful stay. "The Nest " was clean, well equipped, comfortable - - all in a very pretty setting. Beatrice was prepared for our arrival, made sure we were comfortable, provided all the information we needed; then she gave us the exact amount of space guests need. The pool was exquisite - - again, well equipped ( chairs, umbrellas, an excellent outdoor shower, etc.). Apples, grapes, flowers, rosemary and lavender abound. It is really close to Spoleto and accessible to eastern Umbria. Conversations with Beatrice were delightful.

 

Lyne D., Date of stay August 2015

L'accueil de Béatrice a été irréprochable. Elle nous a fourni des indications très claires pour se rendre à l'appartement, mais avait également préparé une liste des restaurants à proximité, des épiceries et autres. Elle nous a facilité grandement la tâche en nous expliquant les itinéraires. Elle était là à notre arrivée et nous a mis très à l'aise pour lui communiquer nos besoins pendant notre séjour. Elle a même pris le temps de nous aider pour apporter nos bagages jusqu'à l'appartement. Elle s'assurait que tout était à notre convenance chaque fois que nous la croisions. L'apartement était impeccable et tout à fait conforme à ce que nous avions vu sur les photos. L'endroit est magnifiquement aménagé, se trouve en pleine nature, mais à quelques minutes seulement des commodités de la ville. Nous avions exprimé notre désir de faire un cousr de cuisine. Elle s'est occupée de trouver un professeur qui est venue à l'appartement nous donner le cours. Comme celle-ci ne parlait que l'italien, Béatrice est restée avec nous tout au long du cours pour faire la traduction. C'était formidable!

 

Jeremiah C., Date of stay 30 July 2014 - Truly Wonderful!

Everything about Torre del Falco was perfect. The grounds, views, flowers and pool are as beautiful as the photos suggest, if not more so. The pool 
is long enough for lap swimming, and the mild salt water is much nicer than chlorine. The interiors are finished to a high standard and in excellent taste, simple but very appealing, and very well maintained. It's tempting just to relax by the pool for hours on end, and some of our group did that from time to time, but the location also is ideal for going to any number of wonderful places. Spoleto has a lot to offer and is very atmospheric. It's just a few minutes' drive to the main carpark with moving walkways to the center. The walk from Torre del Falco to town is also very nice, taking only a half hour even for the uphill return, and a moderately fit 65-year-old did not find it taxing. (We didn't try the walk at night, but with a flashlight I think it would be fine.) Daytrips to fascinating and beautiful places, including the Montefalco vineyards as well as the many famous towns, were easy to manage by car or in some cases by train. (Service to Rome is very frequent; we were surprised by how much of Rome we were able to see in a daytrip by train.) But perhaps what makes Torre del Falco most special is the way Beatrice cares for her guests. As we were planning our trip, Beatrice responded very thoroughly and candidly to our endless questions. We sensed that we could rely on her to give us helpful and accurate information, and we were right. From the moment we arrived, Beatrice was very attentive and personable, making us feel like family. She lives on the property and was always available to help, yet was never intrusive. We found that to be ideal. Another thing that made our stay so nice, and which I would recommend to others, was that Beatrice arranged for a talented local cook (I should say chef, as the cooking was of a very high standard) to make dinner for us on 5 of the nights we were there. That arrangement could not have worked out better; Alessandra made wonderful meals emphasizing the local ingredients and traditions, and was very pleasant to deal with despite the fact that she speaks no English and we speak no Italian. Beatrice went above and beyond to make these arrangements, to check that we were enjoying the meals, and to serve as translator. All in all, this was the most enjoyable stay I have experienced anywhere, and our entire group was delighted with it. We shall return!

 

Sarah Pike - Date of stay June 2014

We were a group of 6 (a family of 4 and a couple) who stayed in the Tower for 3 nights. What a SUPERB experience. It was exquisite. Beatrice (and others) work very hard to ensure that your stay is great and the grounds and the accommodations are perfect. The saltwater pool is wonderful, and from the outside furnishings to every part of the interior furnishings and decoration, no expense has been spared. Everything is very high quality and beautiful, which only adds to the fantastic experience. Beatrice clearly has a decorator's eye (if not years of interior decorating experience?). There are 4 accommodations altogether: the Tower, which sleeps 12; one that sleeps 4; one that sleeps 2; and Beatrice's apartment. So, yes, you are all at the pool together (if the other accommodations are rented). But the pool area is large, with many chaise longues. Also, the 4-person accommodation has its own separate outside area, around the corner and away from the pool. The Tower and the 2-person apt. are on the pool side (though the 2-person apt. has its own table behind a screen). The cats are gorgeous and super-friendly, as are the other animals (2 horses and a sheep). The gardens - especially the roses - are fantastic. It's about a 5-10 minute drive from Spoleto. All in all, a fantastic and VERY relaxing experience. I would go back in a heartbeat.


 

Turid M., NW - Date of stay 30 Jun 2013

Our family, 12 members all together, from the age of 1 to 60 years old stayed at Torre del Falco for two weeks in july 2012. It was like a dream! The tower and the garden was more beautiful than the pictures can tell. Everything was clean, comfortable and well equipted. The tower had everything we needed and the garden was full of roses, beautiful trees, green grass, small places to sit at your own and a lovely table in the shadow where we had our meals. The children loved the cats, the two donkeys and the sheep, and we walked down to the animals several times a day. The wiew from the roof is incredible and can not be described. The pool was lovely and clean, really a place for relaxing and sunbath. The owner, Beatrice, was very helpful and took good care of us. She helped us with everything, what to see, where to go, practical questions and whatever our family needed. We all walked up and down to Spoleto every day, but a car is needed. We have stayed at many places in Italy, but Torre del Falco is one of the best. We would like to return because the place is so beautiful, because Beatrice took so good care of us, and because there is so much to see in a short distance. We higly reccomand Torre del falco.

 

John and Ann , Canterbury, New Zealand - Date of stay September 2012  - Tranquil perfection

We were lucky to have 3 weeks at Beatrice's paradise lastyear. One week in the Nest and 2 in the Falconer. Charmingly decorated andfully equipped it was a perfect setting to unwind after a strenuous couple ofyears. Beatrice was extremely helpful and the cats and ponies a delight.Spoleto itself has a lot to offer, not least the wonderful restaurants thatBeatrice can recommend. But this is a perfect spot to explore and enjoy thedelights of Umbria. Fascinating hill top towns, historic buildings, great localfood ad wine...you couldn't wish for more. We also had fun shopping at localmarkets and cooking the purchases back at the Falconer. Touring Umbria by caris easy. Don't miss Spello, Assisi, Orveito and many others. A surprise anddelight was a day trip to Castelluccio.....a must. Good train services madelunch in Rome or Florence a simple outing. Great grounds and a superb pool. Itwas a privilege to meet Beatrice and share in her wonderful property. Highly recommend.

 

Gill A. , UK - Date of  Stay 7 July 2012 - Heaven on Earth

The drive up to this beautiful place is stunning, but on arrival it took our breath away by its beauty and tranquility. The extensive gardens surrounding the fantastic pool (salt water) are gorgeous and stocked with roses, lavenders and jasmine as well as numerous trees and pergola to provide shade from the sun. There is plenty of seating for all the guests as well as extremely comfortable sunbeds and sunshades. We stayed in the Falconer which had it's own private garden with stunning views across the valley, a lovely table and chairs under a pergola for alfresco dining as well as sun loungers and chairs, bbq....in fact everything we needed. The Falconer itself is so pretty and very spacious with a lovely lounge which is extremely comfortable opening on to a wonderful italian kitchen. The bedrooms (1 twin and 1 double) are beautifully decorated with gorgeous bedding and furnishings as well as having their own ensuite bathrooms with super soft towels. Everything was beautifully clean and sparkling and all the lilttle touches show that Beatrice (the owner) has a real flair for interior design....nothing looked out of place. Beatrice is a lovely lady who is so helpful and friendly, she is also an animal lover (as are we) and we were delighted to meet her beautiful cats and her gorgeous little shetland ponies (Matilde and Marguerite), in fact they helped to make our holiday complete. Nothing is too much trouble for Beatrice and she is so kind and caring. The walk down to Spoleto is breathtaking with glorious views along the way. This is mainly downhill, so I would say that you have to be quite fit for the walk back up....good for burning off the calories of all the delicious food we consumed during our stay. It is an easy car drive down and we found it easy to park at the bottom and walk into Spoleto which is a fascinating town/city with stunning cathedral, castle, architecture, shops, cafes, and restaurants....there really is something for everyone. Staying at the Falconer is a perfect for exploring this part of beautiful Umbria being within easy reach of Perugia and Assisi to name but a few places. Everywhere we stopped felt like something out of a film set. I can honestly say that staying here is like heaven on earth and we enjoyed it so much that we are going back this year. So all I can say is ciao for now and here's to July 2013.....Torre del Falco.....Falconer here we come!
 

Gregory Marlam - Date of Stay 16 August 2008 - Rapunzel must be here!?

This is a place out of a fairy story. The renovation is perfect and the tower a novelty that is very well equipped. The owner is beyond perfect in her help so that the holiday does not have any hiccups and Spoleto has a very friendly Italian population. It is within easy reach of Rome by train but it is better to drive around the area of Spoleto. The pool is wonderful and young and old enjoyed it tremendously especially on the hot days. The mornings are cool and the sun radiant and though the property is it is within an area of great walks. Our family of 9 people found it large enough to enjoy solitude as well as company. This is the Italy that we all think is "Amore".

 

Natalie Birch - Date of Stay 21 June 2009 - Lovely property in a stunning setting

A very warm welcome kicked off a wonderful and relaxing holiday. We loved the cottage, it's beautifully decorated and in a stunning and peaceful setting. Although snug there was enough room for us and our baby and the cottage was equipped with everything we needed. The owner was lovely and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. She was great for tips on places to eat (a pizza place in an old church she recommended did excellent pizza, and Tempio del Gusto was also a top recommendation for a nice romantic dinner). Spoleto is a lively and interesting place with plenty to keep you occupied. The Nest is on the edge of town, and although it's within walking distance it would probably be advisable to drive at night because the country roads are very dark and 
windy. It also makes a great base for touring the other sights of Umbria. Unfortunately we didn't get to see as much as we'd planned - relaxing by the pool in such a beautiful setting proved too irresistible! I notice that a previous reviewer found there was not enough storage space. When we visited there was a large wardrobe and some drawers in the bedroom, so we had no problem unpacking all our luggage and then storing our cases under the bed.
 

Sean McKnight - Date of Stay 21 August 2009 - We Didn't Want to Leave

The tower was a wonderful place to stay, very comfortable and roomy with good bedrooms and a generous number of bathrooms. The rooms are decorated very sympathetically and the three bathrooms are reassuringly moderrn. Its great to have the battlements - a good place just to imagine your a feudal lord. The little kitchen is also a nice touch, though we only manged one big meal on top. 
The lounge is comfortable and airy. The kitchen is large and homely - nice and cool during the day as well. Overall the tower is 21st century comfort but with a wonderful medieval charecter. Outside there is lots of space and the best pool our family has ever had on holiday (and we like a our pools). Considering how close you are to Spoleto the views are really rural. There is a hum of noise from the road in the valley, but that is the modest downside of being able to walk in 20 minutes into the centre of medieval Spoleto. You are competely unaware of the nearby properties, but a 5 minute drive takes you to a decent supermarket. A beautiful place to stay where it is so tempting just to stay at home - however you must tear yourself away from the tower on some days as the area is so lovely and un-touristy. On top of it all Bea is a trully generous host who really looks after her guests - the care she took to make sure our car window (badly cracked on the journey) got repaired was really kind. To rent a place from someone who was so helpful and very very nice really made our holiday wonderful.
 

The Agneessens - Date of Stay 30 May 2009 - Paradise

This is as close to paradise as you will ever get. A very spacious house, restored with an eye for detail and beauty. The rooms are bright and airy, brandnew immaculately clean bathrooms and a very cosy homely sittingroom with splendid view over the property. Large garden with nice outside terrace, swimmingpool with enough easy chairs for everybody. Beatrice is an angel, coming in every day to check if everything ok and trying to fulfill even the smallest wish. The countryside around is perfect for walking and you will find more charming villages then you can visit in a lifetime ;-) We hope to be back one day !

Ann High - Date of stay 10 August 2013 - Spectacular villa

We cannot recommend The Falconer villa highly enough.Beatrice was a fantastic host and she has furnished all three villas (the Nest,the Tower and the Falconer) to a very high standard. The surrounding gardensare beautifully kept and our teeenage children loved the swimming pool. Spoletois a beautiful medieval town with many shops and restaurants. Go to 'Biondi', a shop with great choice of pasta, truffle oil, biscuits and much more to takehome as gifts. Located in the Umbrian hills you should expect to walk up hillquite a lot! Beatrice was so helpful in advising on restaurants and places tovisit. We visited Rome by train which is only an hour and a half from Spoleto.Parking bays (the ones marked White) at the station were free. Assisi is alsowell worth a visit. The scenery from the villa is spectacular, it truly is agreat place to really relax and unwind. We cooked on the bbq frequently and thesupermarkets are close by. We used the Conad mainly. Thank you again Beatricefor making our summer holiday in Spoleto so enjoyable. We will never forget it.Hope you will visit us in England one day! xx

Marta C. , US - Date of stay 25 May 2013 - Stupendous location, charming accommodation

I was researching the vacation rental my family (myself,husband, 5 month old son and my father) would enjoy for our late Spring holidayin Umbria. Although I diligently scanned numerous options all around the regionand selected a "top 5" based on our needs & wishes, this listingimmediately and consistently stood out, and after I checked off the prioritizeddetails (choice of location - conveniently close to the jewel of a citySpoleto, yet as tranquil as a remote 'castello'; decor -for infant friendliness;swimming pool -salt water!) the Falconer was a clear winner. Then, getting tocorrespond and meet our lovely hostess, Beatrice, our experience continued tounfold smoothly and delightfully. Her abundant garden and living spaceamenities were charming and just luxe enough to make us feel how special ourtime there was, without any pretention. She kindly made a baby crib availableto us, and provided wonderful recommendations for local sights, cuisine andtravel logistics. The only misfortune was the unseasonably cold weather thatkept us from having more occasions to enjoy the incredible view, across thelush, green valley and make use of the al fresco dining set up and _gorgeous_pool, but we remarked on it every time we exited our little cottage (beneaththe tower that sleeps 12) and especially upon arriving home. We would go backin a heartbeat, especially if we could add family and friends and take over theproperty, with hot summer weather : ) We would recommend this listing, forfamilies with children, or for romantic getaways, or for more aged travelers,really anyone who has the good sense to want to explore Umbria!

 

Kathleen A. - Date of stay 1 June 2013 - Scenic comfort in Umbria

The beautiful, relaxing Falconer was everything we hopedfor, and more. Neat, clean, comfortable accommodations; well-equipped kitchen;nicely landscaped grounds and breathtaking view. Beatrice's on-sight butunobtrusive presence was most helpful and welcome. There were four of us in ourunit (mother, father, daughter and son-in-law), occupying two bedrooms with twoadjacent full baths, allowing ample privacy for all. The facility was trulymagnificent ! We would return in a heartbeat.
