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.
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
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.
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
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.
