The mainline station is a 30 minute drive and has trains direct to Florence and Rome.

“Lovely house, beautiful views, great location.”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2013

Positives Casa del Lupo is a lovely house located in a nice area sitting next door to a little church. We were very pleased and comfortable in the house and we love the architecture of the house. The house has one of the best swimming pools of those that we've visited as it has a shallow end and deep end making it suitable for children and unconfident swimmers. The pool also has a great view of the surrounding countryside. English and Italian television meant that everyone in the house was happy. Large Kitchen. Many walks to be had directly out the front gate. The ping pong table was of great use to us during our stay. Mosquito nets on windows were helpful. Stunning views. x WIFI not great - we couldn't access the WIFI in many areas of the house. x For our group it would have been nice to have another bathroom. x Shower head was a little damaged but still usable.

Thank you for your review of Casa del Lupo, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The Wifi coverage has been vastly improved with routers now on every floor, it is now excellent in all the rooms and by the pool. As advertised the house has one en suite bathroom, one family bathroom and one separate WC.

“Perfect Peace”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2013

We have rented with GORGACCE for several years now and never been disappointed. This year Dilys let us rent her home CASA DEL LUPO. It was just PERFECT. My Partner, Alexis, had had a hip replacement and so needed to swim daily in a heated poor. She also needed to exercise by walking. Both these were easily solved at Casa del Lupo. The House was easy to find, bering just off the tarmac road. (No white dust roads here). The kitchen was simple and well stocked for our requirtements. The bedrooms suited us well as we were joined by my Daughter and her husband and 10 year olf grand-daughter. Having an ensuite and a house bathroom was pure luxury. Being ableto eat outside the kitcehn was delightful and the covered pergola protected us well from the heat during the day. There were naeighbours and the Church but neither inconvenienced us at all; the road to the house was always clear! there was English TV and WiFi for the addicts. the Library was well stocked with books and I enjoyed several including the Stig Larsson MILLENNIUM TRILOGY. The shops and cafes at Lisciano Niccone and Mercatale are well known to us and are in easy reach. This year I had the opportunity to further my research on Hannibal and the Battle of Trasiemo, BC 217. It was a wonderful stay and we had a PEACEFUL and VERY ENJOYABLE Stay. is the
