We found Cinque Querce & Mezzo to be very well presented with a house equiped with all your needs. The pool and gardens were beautiful and the hospitality of Dennis and Gilly wonderful. The Roman wine cellar was very popular with our older family members. Dennis and Gilly arranged a Italian cooking class in our kitchen which proved both informative and a great deal of fun.
The views from every window of the property are picture postcard.
On our first evening we watched the sunset while sipping on excellent Italian wine and eating fruit from the trees in the adjoining orchard.
Owners have provided a very useful list of shopping , eating and sight seeing contacts and locations in the area. We sampled a few of the ristorante's in the area which had food and views to die for.
All in all a AAA holiday rating and we were sad to leave.
We were looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun at a comfortable villa with a pool, private but not remote from local amenities and restaurants with good food and wine..and that is exactly what we got. Fantastic spacious villa, beautiful grounds, great location with stunning views,fabulous pool area, and suitable for all ages. Dennis and Gilly were very welcoming and helpful hosts who could not do enough to ensure that our stay was as comfortable and as enjoyable as it could be.
We combined relaxing days at the poolside with day trips to the likes of Sienna, Assisi and the Adriatic Coast. Wine-tasting, art&culture and fascinating old villages are all within easy reach.
We also alternated between cooking at the villa with its great BBQ area and pizza oven and dinning out and the many good quality local restaurants.The villa at night has a special ambience at its hilltop position, under the stars and with panoramic views across the Tiber valley. It was a great place to spend a holiday and I cannot recommend it highly enough. We are already planning dates for our next visit. Enjoy!
