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 Lovely accomodation with everything you need. The site houses a 16th century chapel and a remains of a roman latrine! Beautiful, well maintained gardens with a friendly, obliging owner. A fantastic, family-ran restaurant, 400 metres from the villa was a huge, unexpected bonus.
Cons A very minor criticism is that it would have been nice to have sun loungers in our private garden so we could sit in the sun when our table and chairs were in the shade.

Pros Magnifique propriété, la piscine, la terrasse à l'écart des autres gites (on ne voit pas les autres résidant), le propriétaire extrèmement sympathique.
Cons Un peu loin pour visiter la Toscane (beaucoup de route) Rénovation de certains éléments (réfrigérateur, douche). Vaisselle un peu limitée.

Pros Beautiful position in the countryside, lovely pool and plenty of space
Cons Lack of attention to detail - kitchen implements - no sharp knives, no BBQ utensils - these should be basic and easily rectified Locks on doors make it easy to lock oneself out! Happened twice once at 11.00pm - not funny!

Pros Peace and quiet. The gardens gave us plenty of space to play games without disturbing other guests. Very well maintained garden and accommodation. The swimming pool was a good size and clean.
Local attractions We ate out in Lubriano at the pizza restaurant and the small restaurant recommend to us by the key holder which was delicious. We also ate at the local restaurant that you can walk to- Jovez. Great multi course meal!

L'Elce
What were the highlights of your holiday? Excellent, quite location with plenty of room by the pool. The grounds were always tidy and the service provided by the owner was excellent. We had great days doing nothing and great days visiting places such as Rome, Siena, Assisi and of course the beautiful Orvieto nearby.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Very impressive standard of the building, it's grounds and the service provided by the owner. There were some descriptive elements of the accommodation that were not quite satisfactory but impactful enough to effect the holiday. However, these facilities were a decisive factor for choosing this accomodation and therefore disappointing. For example, the brochure mentions BBQ (but our apartment didn't have one as there were 2 to share across 3 apartments and they were both being used), wireless internet access (not accessible from our apartment due to the thick walls, I could not therefore work), satellite TV (not a single English speaking channel or credible sports channel).
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? No, other than the points mentioned above.
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? The interior fittings could do with some work. The fridge would not close properly and was therefore very easy to leave open.
