The parlour at Villa Pian del Rocchio has a book in which all guests can leave their comments if they like.

Here are some, which we preferred to leave in the original because we like them just the way they are.

 To the comments left in our book, we add those left by our guests in the portals where we are present.

  • Villa Pian del RocchioEccezionale!!!!!! – Data soggiorno ago 2020


  • Alle luxe, alle ruimte, echt genietenWat een prachtige plek! Het huis en de tuin bieden weids uitzicht. Je bent echt van de wereld en toch ben je met tien minuten rijden bij winkels en restaurants. Een paar prachtige steden binnen een uur rijafstand maken de locatie compleet. De tuin is mooi ruim, het zwembad is opvallend groot, je kunt altijd ergens zon of schaduw vinden. Het huis zelf is riant en het ontbreekt aan vrijwel niets; we hebben hier zelf ook veel gekookt en gebakken en altijd buiten gegeten. Huis en tuin worden supergoed bijgehouden, ook tijdens de vakantie, en de eigenaar is goed aanspreekbaar. Dit waren twee zalige weken! – Data soggiorno ago 2019


  • Fantastic house with plenty of space for 10 persons. Very well equiped.Fantastic place with a wonderful view over the Umbria landscape. We really enjoyed every day of our 2 weeks stay. Very nice and big pool with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. Beautiful garden where you could find calm places and shadow. Several places for eating outside. You find many small nice towns close to the house and it was a big challenge to ride our racing bikes when you come from a flat country like Denmark. It was the second time my son and his family stayed here and the first time for me and my wife. And we are convinced that we will be back later. The host family Zapulla took care of everything in the garden and pool – and all kind of request we had were immediately answered. If you want to enjoy Umbria we strongly recommend you to take a stay at Pian del Rocchio into consideration. – Data soggiorno lug 2017


  • Beautiful property with fantastic hostsAbsolutely wonderful stay. Villa was superb and Gaetano and Clara were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they even came out to meet us at 1am after our flight was cancelled. Location is beautiful and so peaceful. The villa had everything you could possibly need and the pool is huge. Children loved it and kept them entertained for hours. Gaetano was so helpful, recommending places of interest nearby. Assisi and Orvieto well worth a visit. I will definitely recommend this villa to my friends and family and hopefully will return in the future. Thank you for a fabulous holiday. – Data soggiorno lug 2016


  • GREAT HOLIDAY – AGAIN – IN VILLA PIAN DEL ROCCHIOWe spent again a great holiday (2 weeks) in Villa Pian del Rocchio which doesn’t let you down. Villa is in very good condition, householder is taking very good care of it. Facilities are on the special level with a proper pool and all other activities (billiards, card and board games, table tennis, table soccer etc.), good kitchen and the garden with wonderful view to the valley. We are family with three teenagers and also grandparents joined us this time so the privacy was also appreciated every now and then which was available when enough room and especially private toilets/showers are success.Location is good: peaceful place in the country side but in ten minutes you are by car in near small city Marsciano were all the basics are available, especially Monday market can be recommended for everybody to visit in Marsciano. There are also nice small villages Collelungo and Rotecastello in walking distance if you doesn’t scare a little exercise….we had daily walks enjoying views.

    Location is also overall very good for longer daily trips by car, quite central to visit in many interesting places of Umbria like Terni and waterfalls, Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi.

    We will remember these weeks forever and the hospitality of family Zappulla…waiting to visit Villa again in future.

    Absolutely recommended for everybody!Data soggiorno giu 2016

  • Magnifique villa au coeur de l’OmbrieNous avons passé deux très belles semaines dans une villa où tout est d’une qualité et d’une propreté incroyable. Pour les amoureux de nature , c’est l’endroit idéal.

    La villa est de tout confort , billard,baby-foot et pour les amateurs de charcuterie Italienne , vous trouverez même une trancheuse professionnelle. Services irréprochables. Nous remercions le propriétaire et son épouse(Gaetano et Clara) qui nous ont fait découvrir l’Ombrie et ses environs et avec qui nous avons passé une soirée inoubliable . Un tout grand merci et à bientôt.Data soggiorno ago 2015

  • Beyond Expectation!!Our family just completed 4 weeks at Villa Pian Del Rocchio. Our stay, thanks to the accomodations and owners, was incredible. We were a party of up to 9 at times (including two 3 year olds). The villa offers great gathering space both inside and out and is also very accomodating for those times when one wants to be alone for a while. The facilities and amenities were in perfect condition having been impeccably maintained. As described, the views from the Villa and grounds were breathtaking. We really enjoyed the flower gardens, fruit trees and vegetable garden on the property. The outside space and pool provided constant entertainment possibilities or wonderful relaxing areas depending on your need at a particular moment. As far as the owners, Gaetano and Clara, I can’t say enough. From our landing at Rome airport to our depature 4 weeks later, Gaetano and Clara were extremely helpful, informative and available as needed. We honestly felt that we were treated like family. They were an encyclopedia of information and recommendations for all thing Umbria. Their advice was always right on as far as restaurant recommendations, shopping locations, driving directions, vineyard advice and must see sights and towns of Umbria. When we left the Villa for the last time on June 27, 2015 we left good friends. We look forward to seeing Gaetano and Clara again. We would highly recommend Villa Pian Del Rocchio. It will not disappoint!!! Data soggiorno mag 2015

  • Beautiful villaThe villa is fantastic and so is Umbrie! We enjoyed our holidays very much. We have visited Rome, Assisi, Marmore (waterfalls), Orvieto and Florence: beautiful cities and surroundings. The villa has everything you want, is very clean and well equiped and has a perfect swimmingpool and a stunning view. The owners are very welcoming and helpfull. We can recommand this villa!

  • Pian del Rocchio – A Place To Visit Again And Again!Differences of opinion create healthy discourse. However, in this day of social media we all need to avoid frivolous conversations that can do damage to another’s reputation. With this being said, I rarely write a second or third review about an accommodation. But, I was so shocked to read the review indicating that the host of Pian del Rocchio was less than excellent in his hospitality towards his guests that I felt compelled to do so. I have not been requested to do this by the owner. In fact, he is able to defend himself without my aid. But, as a person who retired out of the hospitality industry, I know how much damage one poor review can create. Here is what I have to say. We have visited Pian del Rocchio in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010 and just recently September 2012. Our first visit in 2005 was the most complicated as it included a large group of people coming from various directions. Everyone needed assistance of some sort…..limos, buses, car rentals, train schedules….all arriving at different times and on different days. On top of that I requested that the host find a suitable restaurant to celebrate a 60th birthday party with musical entertainment. No task that I asked was too difficult for the owner. During our month long stay a multitude of requests were made of the host and never once did he hesitate to fulfill our requests or attend to our needs with the upmost grace and charm. He went out of his way to ensure that we were familiar with everything in the house as well as taking us on a tour of all the local points of interest including cantina, grocery stores, post office, restaurants, etc. On all future visits we have experienced this same high level of hospitality. When I make recommendations to my friends (2 groups have since stayed at Pian del Rocchio based on my recommendations), the accommodations have to meet 2 criteria: the host/hostess have to make the stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible; and the accommodation has to be one that I would stay in again and again. The owner on each on the 5 years we have visited Pian del Rocchio has exceeded all my expectations. It is only natural that there are regulations regarding a stay in a vacation rental. It is the responsibility of the guest to comply. I can see from reading other reviews that the host has consistently received 5 star reviews. I trust that those reviewing Pian del Rochhio will recognize the 5 star reviews are reliable reviews.Data soggiorno set 2012

  • Our little piece of heaven!Pian Del Rocchio is our home away from home and our little piece of heaven. We have been going to Pian Del Rocchio for the last five consecutive years with our family ranging from age 67 to 3 so this really is a place for all ages and dare I add that on the first day of my first year I broke my foot and coped well with a leg in plaster and on crutches too! Do I want to share this dream? No but that’s just being selfish so here goes.

    Our hosts Gaetano and Clara are without doubt the most gracious, hostpitable and helpfull, people you could wish for, nothing is to much trouble. You can always be assured of a warm friendly welcome.

    The villa’s location overlooks the magnificent rolling hills of Umbria with such peace and tranquility that you feel as if the world has stopped for a moment. It’s excellent position is great for sightseeing and the local town of Marsciano has everthing you need from good supermarkets, a weekly market, an amazing wine cooperative, great restaurants, and of course the obligatory gelateria which is fantastic.

    The villa is as I said is a real home from home. Beautifully furnished and equiped with everything you could ever need. It’s cleanliness is second to none. The gardens are safe and the large beautiful pool is delighfully refreshing and child friendly, with numerous sunbeds, chairs and umbrellas. So whether you want to bake in the sun or find a quiet shady spot it’s all there.

    We love Pian Del Rocchio and in the five years we have been going our daughter got engaged there and this year she found out she’s expecting her first child so this is a truly magical place for us and we will be back for our sixth year in 2012!

    Don’t hesitate just book a little piece of paradise.Data soggiorno ago 2011

    • Magnificent Umbria Villa ~ Unforgettable!Wow! This villa was even more amazing than we expected and even better than the pictures. The villa was immaculately clean (floors, bedding, linens, kitchen and baths) and prepped for our arrival. Gaetano helped us feel at home and was the most amazing host ever. He and Clara were kind, generous, hospitable and very knowledgable about the area. They were available for any questions yet respected our privacy. There were plenty of linens and bedding and the layout of the rooms allows for complete privacy for 3 to 4 different parties. We were there in August when Umbria was hot, yet the nights were cool and we had no problem sleeping, The kitchen was well organized and stocked with plenty of dishes. We ate every meal on the terrace and lingered to enjoy the cool breezes and beautiful views. The pool was a big hit with our children (ages 4 to 16) between 2 families. They never tired of jumping in, playing pool games or games on the grass. We swam during the hot parts of the day and then went exploring nearby Umrian towns in the late afternoon and evenings. I told my husband that if I had one day to live, I would live it here with my family and friends. Thank you so much Gaetano and Clara !Data soggiorno ago 2011

  • Paradis sur terre We had a wonderful two weeks of vacation at Villa Pian del Rocchio. Un coin de paradis, idéal pour la détente, la lecture, le soleil, la piscine et les activités familiales dans une villa située sur une colline donnant une vue à couper le souffle sur la vallée et les collines environnantes. The people in this part of Italy were particularly welcoming and friendly as they are usually less exposed to a high volume of tourism. La villa est spacieuse et bien conçue pour préserver l’intimité de plusieurs familles dans les multiples chambres à coucher. The ground floor is spacious, allowing guests to interact and have fun without disturbing others who want to take on more quiet activities. But most of all, it is Gaetano and Clara who with their warmth and kind attention added the secret ingredient for a wonderful stay at Pian del Rocchio.Data soggiorno mag 2011

  • Outstanding Villa!!!! We spent two weeks at Villa Pian Del Rocchio, and enjoyed each and every day. Gaetano, the owner, was extremely helpful in introducing us to all the facilities and extra recreational provisions as well as the features of Marsciano, the nearest town. He was so generous with his time and energy! His support both before our arrival and during our stay was terrific! The Villa was as comfortable and elegant as one would desire. As a group of four couples, we all had both space and privacy to enjoy each other and to have ‘down’ time. We enjoyed a cooking class at the villa with which was fabulous: even the husbands who were reluctant to participate were capitivated within minutes! Our trip was enhanced by the van service and cars provided by Stefano Agostini of Todi. The villa’s location was excellent as a central point for touring Umbria. We highly recommend Pian Del Rocchio to those looking for the highest level of accommodation!Data soggiorno set 2010

  • Lived up to expectations – AND MORE!Villa Pian Del Rocchio accomodated a group of 9 people for a week in Sept 2010. It exceded expectations and the photos do not do it justice. The Villa is top spec, sits on top of a hill with unmatched views encompassing the whole of Umbria. The owner made it very easy to direct us to the Villa and show us around. The Area is beautiful. The views amazing and the villa is classy. Definate Value for money. Would recommend it again and again.Data soggiorno set 2010

  • Summer rememberingIt’s September and it’s raining in Finland. I’m still remembering our summer holiday at Pian del Rocchio. Yesterday our kids said that could we go to visit at the Villa next week. I wish!! It was the best holiday ever. Thank’s to family Zappulla from the excellent place.Data soggiorno lug 2010

  • The ultimate Umbrian experience – Our ten day stay at Villa “Pian Del Rocchio” was a very pleasant experience. The accommodations were excellent which included a very nice and well appointed kitchen that allowed us to prepare dinners for a dozen people. The layout of the house with its five bedrooms was ideal. The grounds were well maintained and beautiful. The location was perfect being just outside Marciano which made it easy to shop for essentials and a short drive from wonderful towns. Having easy access to highways made it easy to tour the surrounding area. The listing photos accurately reflected the the true appearance of the property and its amenities. The owner was very helpful in answering questions and informing us of local bakeries, butcher shops and restaurants.

    The central location made for an easy drive from Rome and the surrounding towns of Todi, Spoleto,

    Assisi, Cortona and others were easy to reach for a days adventure. I would highly recommend this property. – Data soggiorno mag 2010

  • Guestbook Comment – Dear Gaetano & Clara, We have visited your beautiful country villa 3 times but have been reluctant to write comments as we wish to keep Pian del Rocchio a secret. Anything that I write will not correctly address the beauty and tranquility of your villa. It is all we wish for when we come to Italy. It has become our second home. It is rural yet so close to everything that is needed for a self-catered vacation. Upon each vist (both spring and fall seasons) the villa embraces us from the covered veranda to the terraces off of each bedroom. Thoughts of your guests comforts are evident everywhere. The views are spectacular. Comtemplating a sunset after a day of sightseeing is a requirement you won’t want to miss. And there are so many sights to see such as Deruta (pottery); Lake Trasimeno (fresh seafood); Assisi (St. Francis); Spoleto; Gubbio; Orvieto; Todi; Cortona; Perugia; Torgiano; Montefalco (wine)and so many more small towns. There is not enough room to express our love of Italy, Umbria and Pian del Rocchio. Thank you. We will return. Donna & Ray – Data soggiorno feb 2009

  • Dream Vacation – Gaetano, the owner was extremely helpful before our arrival, making sure the beds were arranged properly for us, and upon arrival, met some of our party to show them around town. The villa is very well kept. We had 4 couples with a total of 3 small children. We had a wonderful time. The location is near all the hill towns of central Italy. I can’t wait to go back. – Data soggiorno mag 2008

  • Earlier than usual this year! A little more added each year, which makes it more like home than a holiday villa. Sky Sports/Films a great addition for the kids. Great holiday as in previous years. See you next year, all being well… (12/2004)
  • Wonderful villa, surroundings. Umbria is picturesque. Delightful to explore. Hosts so helpful. Ciao. (11/2004)
  • A fantastic place. Couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate Dad’s 65th birthday/retirement. Thanks. (12/2003)
  • A lovely villa, and the best pool we’ve had. An excellent base for discovering new sights in Umbria, and re-visiting some of our favourites! Many thanks. (11/2003)
  • A lovely villa with everything one needs to make self-catering a pleasure. We are grateful to Francesco for his kindness. Our two meals out at “Oasi” in Marsciano and “The Castello” in Monte Castello were good. (12/2002)
  • Great holiday. The best in Italy so far. The house and facilities are excellent, especially the pool. Brilliant, we hope to visit again next year. (11/2002)
  • La pace e la vista, unite all’accoglienza ed al calore della struttura fanno di questo posto un luogo di vacanza da incantevole relax! Complimenti! (12/2001)
