Giulia and Malcolm are wonderful hosts, and their home is simply lovely.
Giulia responds to contacts very quickly. She is Italian/English and Malcolm is English, which helps people like us who do not speak Italian. The couple are very welcoming, and provide many guide, history and activity notes to ensure you make the most of the fabulous location. A car is essential.
Their huge home is completely renovated and beautifully furnished. It has every item you could want, and everything works perfectly.
The peaceful location is a wonderful base to explore the amazing 'hill towns' of Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio. It is also a wonderful place to just sit on the balcony and relax in the evenings, and enjoy the fabulous food and wine that you can buy in the markets of the towns nearby, whilst watching the farmers working away in the distance.
We have stayed in many VRBO properties throughout the world: a few equal to but none better than LaPorcilaia.
This place was perfect for us. We arranged to stay here for one night, which was a big mistake. We should have stayed here several days, making day trips to Pitigliano, Sovana, Civita, Saturnia, and anywhere else nearby we wanted to visit. This was the perfect place to relax, cook dinner, and relax some more. The grounds and the view were stunning.
Equally important the host, Daniela, was helpful and easy to contact. She offered to meet us in Gradoli to show us how to get to the property. We thought we could easily find it on our own. Wrong! We got completely lost and ended up meeting her father, Serafino, in Gradoli. Lesson learned … meet them in Gradoli to begin with! Then it's a short drive to the property. Serafino was absolutely wonderful! It was a pleasure meeting him and talking with him about his life and the property.
This is definitely a place we would return to.
