There is space for parking in front of the cottage which is all on one level and has been adapted for disabled use if required.

Location: Casale Bellaluce

Casale Bellaluce is a traditional stone built house, which was completely renovated in 2003 into 4 apartments. The makeover has been done in a very sympathetic manner, keeping many of the original features, yet bringing the property up to date and providing all the expected modern comforts.

The large inviting swimming pool is positioned in one corner of the garden; it is completely surrounded by fencing with a gate for safety. The paved pool surround is furnished with sun loungers, chairs and umbrellas.The pool may occasionally be used by members of the owner's family

The pool is mainly rectangular in shape with an extra section in the top left hand corner where the internal steps lead down into the refreshing water. From the pool and garden you have far reaching views across farmland to the rolling Umbrian hills in the distance.

The original farmhouse was built on this plot around 1000 AD, although the current house is much later. It was also at one time a Benedictine Monastry which is why there is the church attached to one side of the building. The area itself has been inhabited for far longer than that, it was during the renovation work that a Roman cistern was found.
The property has three separate apartments and a detached cottage. The three apartments are located in the main building and the cottage is located opposite the main house. The largest apartment is on the first floor while the ground floor houses the two smaller apartments. Each accommodation has its own private outside space where you can enjoy dining al fresco.

The large communal gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs. The owners have placed large terracotta pots throughout the grounds which are planted with brightly coloured Mediterranean flowers. The Roman cistern that was discovered during the building works can also be seen in the garden.

There is a 13th century chapel attached to the left side of the house which has lovely 16th century frescoes inside.  The chapel is still consecrated and at the end of July each year there is a service held to celebrate a local religious festival.

The property is surrounded by farmland and has spectacular seemingly endless uninterrupted views across the countryside.
The owner of the property has installed environmentally friendly solar panels on top of the car parking shelter. These create enough power for the house, the generators for the swimming pool and garden and all of his farm.

Pool Info


The large inviting pool is set in the right hand corner of the grounds. It has a paved surround furnished with plenty of sun loungers, tables and chairs. Internal steps lead down into the cooling water which has a maximum depth of 1.45 metres. The shallow end is 1 metre increasing to 1.45 metres at its deepest. The pool is open from mid May to September.

The swimming pool measures 12 metres by 6 metres with an extra 2 metre section in the top left corner where the internal steps are located. There is a wire fence surrounded the pool area with a gate for access, so that the garden area is safe for children to play in.

Pros Neben der Gepflegtheit der gesamten Anlage, fanden wir es besonders angenehm, dass Il Mandorlo ein kleines, in sich abgeschlossenes Haus ist, dass eine tolle Ausstattung hat (z.B. Kamin, geschmackvolle Einrichtung inkl. tolle Fußböden + Bad, eigene Terrasse...).
Cons - die nach Innen öffnenden Fensterläden, die besonders im kleinen Schlafzimmer bei geöffnetem Fenster störend waren - Fenster ohne Insektenschutz
Local attractions - tolle Ausflugsziele: Orvieto, Todi, Bolsena (+See), Tarquinia (+Meer), Rom - Restaurants: Jeder Ort hat seine kleinen, feinen Restaurants; aber besonders zu nennen sind in Todi das "Le Cisterne" und in Lubriano das Restaurant an der Zufahrtsstraße zum Supermarkt (fantstisches Tiramisu!!!)

Pros Très bon acccueil du propriétaire. Propriété très calme, bien entretenue, très belle bâtisse pleine de charme. Chaque locataire peut bénéficier de sa terrasse personnelle.
Restaurant typiquement italien à proximité avec un accueil excellent, menu très copieux et très bon rapport qualité-prix. Proximité des grandes villes à visiter. Surtout ne pas rater la visite d'Orvieto et plus particulièrement Assisi, les villages pittoresques aux alentours. Piscine très agréable, bien aménagée question transats.... Location à conseiller tant pour des couples que pour des familles avec enfants.
Cons Rien de particulier.

Pros La maison est très bien située: au calme, à la campagne et très proche des grands axes routiers (à 10 mn de l'autoroute = idéal pour se déplacer).
Le jardin est superbe et très bien entretenu. La piscine est très agréable et les dimensions correspondent bien aux photos sur le site (tout à fait possible de nager des petites longueur = pas juste barboter).
Cons -Pas suffisamment d'équipements dans la cusine. La vaisselle est très réduite. -Des éléments de conforts supplémentaires seraient appréciés : des transats plus confortables, des coussins sur le canapé. -Ménage un peu sommaire à l'arrivée
Local attractions - Sienne - Arrezo - Assise

Pros The owner of Casale Bellaluce has made a number of improvements. All access roads to the property have been renovated and improved. The path around the pool has been renewed.

Il Mandorlo has a brand new shower installed.

The owner says that new garden furniture will be in place at all villas by the end of April 2014.

Pros Exzellentes Anwesen mit tollem Pool, Rasen, Grillmöglichkeiten, Feigen- und Olivenbäumen und liebevoll renovierten Häusern. Schöne Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in der Umgebung. Der Hausverwalter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit!
Cons Bei unserer Ankunft war das Geschirr z.T. nicht richtig sauber; die Wohnung hätte etwas gründlicher um Spinnenweben bereinigt sein können. Da wir gern kochen, hätte die Küchenausstattung etwas umfangreicher sein können. Sonst alles bestens.

Pros The area was beautiful, romantic and peaceful. The swimming pool and accomodation was spotless and the owner was friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English but was never intrusive...a massive plus for two people who have never been to Italy or stayed anywhere as romate as Il Mandorlo. We loved every minute! To Tuscany were incredibly informative and helpful throughout the booking process and we feelt confident that if we had a problem we could turn to them.
Cons It was the best holiday we have ever had. Nothing we didn't like.
Local attractions Jovez (the local family run restaurant) was in walking distance. They served great food and were so hospitable! They really looked after us. If you have limited Italian but really want to sample traditional italian food then this place was perfect! They spoke good English and served up all their specialities at a very reasonable price. There is also an excellent pizzerria in Lubriano, which is favoured by the locals...excellent fresh, reasonably priced pizzas but also served us an amazing steak! Icecream in any of the little bars in Lubriano is fantastic.

Pros Vor Ort wurden wir vom Besitzer der Anlage SUPER betreut. Die Englischkenntnisse des Besitzers waren sehr gut. Die Anlage ist perfekt gepflegt, bedenkt man die über 2000 Jahre alte Geschichte. Ausstattung der Küche war umfangreich, außerdem ist eine Waschmaschine vorhanden. Die Anlage wird im Portal authentisch präsentiert.
Cons Eine Kleinigkeit: Um eine perfekte Packliste für den Urlaub zu erstellen, wäre es schön eine Liste der aktuellen Ausstattung der Küche zu haben.
Local attractions Rom: mit der Bahn von Orvieto in ca. 1,5 Std. Sienna: mit dem Auto in ca. 2 Std. Florenz: mit dem Auto in ca. 2. Std. Orvieto: mit dem Auto in ca. 15 min. Lago di Bolsano: mit dem Auto in ca. 30-40 min.

Il Mandorlo
Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die schöne Anlage und das Häuschen an sich.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr ordentlich und sehr sauber. Tolles Häuschen. Allerdings war die Ausstattung (Küche) nicht so toll. Ausserdem stand in der Beschreibung es stünde ein PC mit Internet zur Verfügung und es gäbe einen Haartrockner. Beides war nicht der Fall. Das war schade, weil wir uns darauf eingestellt hatten. Aber das waren nur Kleinigkeiten und wir würden trotzdem nochmal buchen.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nicht korrekte Beschreibung der Ausstattung (s.o.)
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Beschreibung der Ausstattung und Anfahrtsbeschreibung könnten genauer sein.
