Reviewed 19 September 2017 for a stay in August 2016

Casa Alessandra is a fabulous base to explore both Umbria and Tuscany, but frankly the local area and the lake is beautiful in its own right. The property is surrounded by wonderful agricultural land with no visible neighbours, and accessible only down an unsealed road, and yet is within easy access of Castiglione and local villages.

We loved the space at Casa Alessandra - it’s a spacious house on a huge plot with a very generous pool and garden. Even full with 8 of us, we didn’t feel on top of each other at all. The kids really enjoyed exploring the grounds and watching the activities on the surrounding farms.

Evenings on the terrace were fantastic and it’s a great spot to enjoy the sunset - just make sure you prepare for insects with plenty of spray and candles to dissuade them from sharing your evening! Additionally we booked Susi the chef who came and cooked for us all on 2 occasions - highly recommended!

The house stayed lovely and cool even in the...

We stayed at Casa Alessandra for a week in August and had a wonderful time. It is in a great location - only 10 min drive from Castiglione del Lago - but also very secluded and away from it all. the villa is extremely comfortable, bright and spacious. Although we had some bad weather days, the house was so lovely we didn't mind!
Sandra, the owner, also went above and beyond the call of duty when we had some problems with our car rentals and was always on hand to offer suggestions on where to visit/eat etc.
We were a group of 8 with small children, teenage children and grandmothers and the villa was prefect for all of us.

thank you
