Excellent, relaxing, hospitable

Excellent, relaxing, hospitable, chilling and most enjoyable. Lovely views still 33 degrees very good experience. Easy journey to Perugia old architecture, character and very good food very reasonably priced. A must do for you to de-stress.

Perfect Peaceful Picturesque Home from Home

Beautiful setting within the Umbrian hills, a stones throw from Italy's 4th largest lake (Trasimeno). Casa Nestore is clean, well maintained and equipped, with a great welcome from Nick and Mandi, the owners. It was great for a late summer break, and certainly still warm enough for a few dips in the well sized swimming pool. The local restaurant and bar, in Castiglione Della Valle (

Lovely holiday apartments in a quiet village

Lovely holiday apartments in a quiet village half an hour from Perugia with a lovely pool. Nick, Mandy and their son Isaac couldn’t have been more helpful. You will need a car and then it’s a great base to explore the many delights of the local area such as a chocolate factory, vineyards, the huge nearby lake, local markets and many fabulous restaurants. If you don’t fancy driving and don’t want to cook there is a fabulous pizza joint in the village which is a 10min/900m walk away and there’s also a village cafe for that excellent cup of Italian coffee in the morning. A place to really unwind, chill out and kick back.

Wonderfull Peaceful Time

We had a wonderful peaceful time in the heart of Italy. The apartment was very clean with great facilities and a fantastic swimming pool. The provided breakfast for our first morning and bubbly for the evening. Nick and Mandy are fabulous host who provided us with loads of information on where to eat and what to visit. If you are looking for a relaxing time in a beautiful setting, book Casa Nestore now! We are for 2019. Five stars

Beautiful and well equipped with excellent knowledgeable hosts!

Just returned from a wonderful stay in the Olivia, Casa Nestore apartment. The location is beautiful and perfect whether you want to relax by the pool or get out and explore the surrounding area. The apartment is brilliantly equipped with everything you need to self cater but we spent most of our time trying out the local restaurants. Mandi and Nick are very knowledgeable and happy to advise on places to eat and visit.

If you get the opportunity while you are there visit a village festa ( we went to Monte Petrilolo)for a real local feel for food and entertainment, it is a lot of fun. We also loved visiting the lake which is a short drive away, Castiglione Del Lago is a beautiful historical town with lovely restaurants ( fab views) and shops to wander round. They also have an open air cinema during the summer months. 

Our teenage daughter enjoyed visiting the local water park and would also thoroughly recommend a visit to the local wakeboard park in Perugia. The instructors there spoke really good English and were brilliant.

It was very hot during our holiday so in the afternoons it was nice to retreat under the umbrella on the private patio with a glass of Prosecco ( very reasonably priced in the local supermarket!). It would be lovely to go back slightly earlier or later in the season when we are told the temperature is a more comfortable 25-30 degrees.

All in all, we had a fab holiday and thoroughly recommend this beautiful apartment in this beautiful part of the world.

Magnifiques vacances

Nous avons été très bien accueillis, la location correspond parfaitement aux photos sur le site, le logement était très propre. L endroit est magnifique, très calme.
Nous avons passé de très agréables vacances 
Nick a fait le maximum pour rendre notre séjour parfait c est un vrai plaisir

Beautiful apartment in fabulous surroundings

Everything you need for a "do as much as you like" break. The apartment was impeccable, the pool is right outside the door, as is the relaxing sunbathing terrace. The surrounding area is what you'd expect from beautiful Italian countryside, peaceful, pretty towns and villages, and off the main tourist trail. 
Eating out is great value, and in our experience great quality, and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from in close driving distance - from pizzas to more upmarket options. 
We've already recommended the place to friends.

Umbria looks great in late Spring

A great stay Casa Nestore in the Oliva apartment. Umbria looks great in late spring and it’s already hot enough to make the pool a necessity.

Really enjoyed having breakfast at the table by the window overlooking wheat fields laced with poppies with village in the background. Mandi and Nick the owners have a wealth of local knowledge and you will never be short of places to visit and very good local restaurants to eat in. A really relaxing stay: going to repeat the experience in the Autumn to further explore Umbria. As a keen walker I will be exploring the many routes which pass right by Casa Nestore and the weather should be a little cooler

Stunning location

We had an enjoyable stay at Casa Nestore, the apartments are very comfortable and well equipped, location was stunning. Nick & Mandi are great hosts and assist not only with the area but the wine choice too!! Thank you

Very comfortable and spacious

Just had a week at Casa Nestore in the Fico Apartment. Very comfortable and spacious. Well appointed and with a superb pool to cool off in. Would definitely go again. Beautiful countryside and close to Perugia, Assisi and other places to visit.

Beautiful apartment in stunning location

We have stayed at Case Nestore 3 times now and would thoroughly recommend it for anyone looking for a lovely summer holiday or a long weekend. Both apartments are beautifully furnished and very well equipped and are in a stunning countryside location. Mandi and Nick are lovely hosts and will do everything they can to ensure you have an amazing stay

Lovely Base to Explore Umbria

Casa Nestore is a wonderfully restored property with two new apartments for rent, all set in wonderful Umbrian countryside. We stayed in the two-bedroom Fico apartment with our two boys in August 2017.

The apartment is modern, spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything that you are likely to need. The fantastic pool is accessible from the Fico’s private terrace and the sun loungers provide an excellent opportunity to kick back and relax amongst the beautiful landscape surrounding Castiglione della Valle.

Lake Trasimeno is only 15 mins drive from the apartment and offers a wide range of water sports and lakeside restaurants. Perugia, the main historic town in the region is 20km from the apartment and reachable by car or by using the fully automated monorail system.

The countryside around the apartment offers beautiful, peaceful walks through woodland, fields and the local village of Castiglione della Valle.

The friendly English owners (Nick and Mandy) are on site and are very helpful in providing advice and help if needed. A fantastic, relaxing stay - we would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a base to explore the beautiful Umbrian countryside.

Relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings

We stayed at Casa Nestore at the end of July. Nick & Mandi were very accommodating to our needs, and even replaced one of the single beds with a travel cot for our youngest. We had a disaster with our rental car, which put our ETA back 2 hours, however they stayed up to greet us, and show us everything in the apartment (at 2am)! The breakfast basket is a lovely and very helpful trust, especially if you aren't arriving until late evening. The apartment is situated in a lovely location, and we found it easy to navigate around the village, to the local shops and bar. The welcome booklet provides a ton of information about places to visit, which made getting out and about much easier! We were blown away with our accommodation, beautifully spacious inside, and plenty of room outside for the children to play around the pool (and for me to sunbathe)! It includes a TV, and stacks of DVDs to watch. There was plenty of towels & bedding (not that we needed that in 39 degree heat)! & we were also provided with fans for the apartment. We had a lovely stress free stay, in a beautiful part of Italy.

Gewoon fantastisch

Geweldige vakantie plek, heerlijk tot rust komen. De eigenaren zijn ontzettend vriendelijke mensen en super voor onze zoon. Het huisje is compleet van alles, wat je kan bedenken is aanwezig.

Perfection in the Umbrian countryside

We have just returned from a wonderful week’s stay at Casa Nestore in the Olivia Apartment. The apartment is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and finished to an excellent standard. The kitchen is very well equipped and the bathroom has an excellent walk in shower. The bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of storage space. The apartment has the most picturesque views from all aspects and has its own terrace which we enjoyed in the evenings watching the sun go down over hills with a glass of prosecco! The large shared terrace has plenty of sun loungers and is perfect for sunbathing. The swimming pool is an excellent size, very well maintained and the perfect temperature to enjoy at any time of the day. The location of the apartment is very peaceful and very relaxing.The apartment is an excellent base for exploring Umbria with Perugia and Lake Trasimeno all within 45 / 30 mins respectively by car. There are plenty of walks around the village of Castiglione Della Valle and the woodland around the apartment. There are plenty of cycle and mountain biking routes too.Nick, Mandi and Issac are the perfect hosts and made us feel really welcome and at home. They provided lots of suggestions for places to visit and places to eat and were happy to help with any questions that we had.We highly recommend Casa Nestore Holiday Apartments and look forward to returning to enjoy another stay soon.

Fantastic family run apartments and location

Wonderful family run apartments in a great location. We flew Stansted to Perugia, 30 mins transfer by car. Beautifully finished apartments, with everything you need for your stay. It was a great base to visit Perugia, Lake Trasimeno and we even travelled South to run the San Valentino Marathon. The family we very helpful with lots of local tips for things to do and places to eat. Highly recommended as a base for exploring Italy.

Fantastic Family Holiday

Our family of 5 stayed in Fico the 1st week of August as part of a larger group who used Oliva. This gave us our own private space yet allowed us to dine and socialize together as well which was perfect.The new apartment is clean, spacious and modern and we were very comfortable. It is well appointed and designed and I can't recall needing anything that isn't provided right down to guidebooks, maps tea & coffee etc. much more than you would normally expect from self catering ! The Lambdens' were amazing hosts recommending restaurants and day trips and even directed and accompanied us to a local village festival one evening.The weather was very hot, perfect for swimming in the stunning pool with plenty of sun loungers and shaded al fresco patio areas and there was a refreshing breeze at night time.
There was plenty of space, the lounge with the xbox being my favourite! Great woods to explore and fabulous Gelato shops everywhere! I loved it Ruben (9)
