Gorgeously restored villas with breathtaking views. Chill out on the terrace, sample the owner’s homemade wine, and the wood-fired pizza!

Enjoy David's wine on arrival, absorb the view of cultivated and wooded hills and unwind. Chrissie and David, warm, generous, thoughtful, bought the farmstead in a ruinous state and did it all up in under a year. The little 'houses', private but close, each with its own terrace, are suitable for singles, couples or families. The restoration is sympathetic, unpretentious, delightful, the off-white décor and soft furnishings enhancing undulating beams and stone walls; the bathrooms are lovely. Supplies are left for breakfast on your first morning and should last until you're ready to venture out. Your hosts produce their own wine, olive oil and seasonal herbs and vegetables, which you can pick from the garden. Feed a friendly, fluffy alpaca, or take advantage of the library of books and board games on offer in the main house. David cooks on Tuesdays, and Thursday is pizza night – your chance to use an original wood-fired oven. Bliss to have Perugia so nearby – a 20-minute drive – and to return to a pool with views down the valley all the way to Assisi, a bottle of chilled Orvieto by your side.

Local points of interest from
Christina Todd & David Lang:

  • Casa San Gabriel is located in a stunning valley where there are many wonderful walks, through olive groves, vineyards and a short drive can take you to the start of a hike to Monte Tezio, set at 1000 metres gives the most spectacular views of the area.
  • Truffle hunting tours can be organised in the local area followed by a truffle degustation meal at L'Antica Osteria restaurant located in the idyllic hill top town of Montone.
  • Antognolla Golf is located less than 2 kms from Casa San Gabriel and guests can enjoy the challenging 18 hole Robert Trent Jones championship course. A drink or a meal can be enjoyed at the wonderful club house restaurant.

Guest feedback
"What a wonderful place! We stayed in the "La Stalla" property and it was perfect. Pool is a gorgeous place to relax but if you can bring yourself to leave then there are great places nearby to explore (we would recommend Assisi and Agriturismo Calagrana for a cookery course). Chrissie and David were great hosts - always available to answer questions and the girls are adorable and so well behaved. We would definitely love to return one day."
