Casa Roberto

Casa RobertoWe’ve had a fantastic week together with our extended family staying in Casa Roberto, celebrating two 40th wedding anniversaries.  We all loved the new pool and our little ones loved the swing, see-saw and swing seat.  Having stayed in Sopra almost eight years ago, on our honeymoon, we paid return visits to Perugia, Citta di Castello and Umbertide.  Coming back has reminded us how much we love the area and how lovely the accommodation is here.  Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

Our first visit here and we loved staying in Casa Roberto – we particularly enjoyed the keyboard playing, the outdoor play area and pools.  We enjoyed exploring Isola Maggiore on Lake Trasimeno, Perugia (by train), Montone and Citta di Castello.  Also learning how to make ravioli on the cooking course at Calagrana was great fun – we’ll be buying a pasta machine immediately on our return!  A lovely place to spend time with our family.

This was my husband’s first trip to Italy and what a delightful base this has been to explore Umbria.  We’ve spent some lovely days wandering around Montone, Citta di Castello, Gubbio and the train trip to Perugia was a particular highlight.  Communal evenings around the large table on the terrace were a fabulous way to spend quality time with the family.  Thanks for a marvelous stay.  We’ll be back!

What a lovely time away from all the speed and noise of London in this calm and peaceful place.

It has been a very special week.  Despite the amazing trips to places like Assisi, Gubbio and La Verna, my best memories are all from here.  I loved watching the stars and fire flies and sitting on the swing seat watching the birds swooping over the pool.  Thank you.

I have loved the soft air and distant hills, the olive groves and stretching cypress trees, the whispering poplars and lines of vines… the fruitful branches and space for new growth…

A terrific week, full of warmth… the surroundings and cloudscapes are fabulous!
M&L in Sept 2016

Thank you… very special memories of lovely times in Assisi and walking in the hills with the smell of wood-smoke preparing me for Autumn.

Umbria has not disappointed and while the weather has been warm rather than hot, we’ve spent an enjoyable week relaxing and sight-seeing in equal measure.

Sopra has proved to be an ideal base for our time here.  The swimming pool is wonderful and we look forward to our next visit.

poolAlthough the weather has been variable, we have enjoyed time in and around the pool and on the terrace.  We have cooked and eaten together, however… many pizzas have also been consumed!

Thank you for a lovely stay in Terra – it was just what we needed.  As a family we’ve had such a good time, even visited Rome and a few small towns locally.
Family W in August 2016

It’s been so good to stay in Terra… the calm, peace and tranquility has been most welcome after the busy days in Assisi and other places.  Looking forward to the next time!
