It was the second time that we've been at Agriturismo Niccone, and again we were not disillusioned. Everything was very clean, Simone the owner was very helpful and friendly and we like the central position of the agriturismo as well. With growing up teenagers there was plenty of choice of visiting villages and also at the Trasimeno Lake they've enjoyed themselves.
In short, we can recommend this agriturismo to anyone. Also with compliments to you for the good communication, from booking to departure.
Regards Marie Eve, Tonny and the children
Dear Saskia and Sylvia,
We've had a lovely week with our family in apartment Bianco from Agriturismo Niccone. The position is wonderful, with the village at walking distance from the accommodation. In the village there is a bar, restaurant Di Gianna and a small grocery. Cortona, Perugia and the Trasimeno Lake are close by and ideal for a day trip. Agriturismo Niccone is beautiful, well maintained and the apartment is spacious. The swimming pool is excellent surrounded by trees for the necessary shade. The vegetable garden and the warm welcome of Simone and his family are more than appreciated. Twice we enjoyed a meal in the restaurant. We really have no issues to mention.
We are very happy with your service. Fast, practical, honest and pleasant. Very much appreciated!
If we decide to come back next year to Umbria, we know where to find you!
Fam. Van Dijk
We had a lovely stay at Agriturismo Niccone. We had a warm welcome with a nice drink by the daughter of the owner. She speaks less English. Her brother came later and he took care of the payments and passports. He speaks good English and offered us good service! For example he gave us an extra umbrella and a cable for the computer! A very friendly person. Apartment Bianco is beautiful, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the furniture, fly screens and good beds. The apartment is very well maintained and extremely clean! In the kitchen we missed some simple things like glasses. But, if we would have asked for it, they would have brought it immediately. We did not mind, though. Everything was in good condition, the spacious parking place, the beautiful swimming pool and garden. No complaints! Also the sun beds and chairs outside were of good quality. The owners are friendly and helpful. They find it important that guests enjoy their holidays. We had dinner two times at the restaurant where the mamma prepares traditional Umbrian dishes. We really enjoyed the meals. Fantastic! Only 25 Euro per person. Also the breakfast was ok, but for Dutch people in general Italian breakfasts are not really special, but for the first morning after our arrival it was just fine. In short, it was all good! Recommendable!
Regards, Rick Holland
Hello Saskia and Sylvia,
We enjoyed our holiday in Umbria! Agriturismo Niccone is a beautiful location. We got a very warm welcome when we arrived. The owners are very friendly. When they were on the property they often offered us a drink. As promised the microwave was in the apartment. Thank you! Every evening we went to the vegetable garden to get fresh vegetables for dinner. The apartment itself was spacious for 2 (+ 1 baby) persons. Maybe the bathroom needs a facelift! But this is a small detail. Everything was really well maintained. We very much enjoyed our stay!
Regards, Anneleen, Stijn and Felix Belgium
Dear Saskia and Sylvia,
Like in 2008 our stay at Lisciano Niccone was great. The property is well maintained and the people are really friendly. Fantastic. We had a problem with the warm water, but it was fixed within a couple of minutes. Also the food at the restaurant is good. The price quality is excellent. In 10 days we went two times to the restaurant for dinner. If we have to mention something negative, we missed some material in the kitchen. I think having a vegetable garden for food and cooking enthusiasts it might be useful having more kitchen equipment. Besides it is not allowed take glasses to the swimming pool (absolutely correct), which means that plastic glasses and plates would be appreciated. Anyhow, these are all minor details, not worth mentioning. We had a lovely stay! Again this will not be our last time at agriturismo Niccone. Thank you for organizing and all the information you’ve sent us!
Regards, Wiegert Holland
Beste Willemijn & Saskia,
We very much enjoyed our stay in Umbria. Very well maintained apartments and grounds, friendly owners. Everything was cured with care, it was all neat and clean. Wonderful surroundings, fitness and wellness on site, barbecue, pizza oven and a wonderful vegetable garden with excellent tomatoes, other vegetables and herbs.
In short: a top accomodation and surely a holiday to be repeated. It deserves a 10 out of 10!
Gr. Fam. Mungroo
We have really enjoyed the position of the agriturismo and the spacious apartments, well fitted in the surrounding nature. The hosts have done everything they could to make us feel comfortable, including providing an excellent meal for small price. Whenever something was not working, they replaced it immediately.
Our only comments is that the owners not not speak anything but Italian and we believe this is not enough to run a business like theirs.The area is beautiful, lots of wonderful nature, architecture and culture
With best wishes, Piet and Ina
Dear Willemijn and Saskia,
unfortunately our holiday has again ended; we have really enjoyed our stay at the Picchi family. The area is beautiful and the apartment good.
Best wishes, Arthur
Dear Willemijn and Saskia,
we can only praise the accommodation we rented, it was very clean and the owners were friendly and helpful. We can recommend this place.
Best wishes, Marc
We were welcolmed by Simone who showed us around the apartment and the rest of the complex, he also gave us a drink and made us feel very welcome. Our appartment was colder than expected which is not a complaint but we needed to run the central heating. We got it working eventually but some written instructions on the operation of the combination boiler would hace been helpful. The shower was adequate but not good. The shower head needs replacing and both the fixed and sliding supports could not be tightened.
The apartment was spotlessly clean and tidy with plenty of room. The rest of the complex and gardens were also immaculate and well maintained. We met Simone's parents who were also very friendly, his mother gave us some strawberries one day.
Overall the apartment was excellent value for money and well situated for access to the village and the surrounding countryside.
Robert and Carol
Our holiday in Umbria was perfect. The weather was magic which of course sets the scene.
The apartment was well set up with a beautiful outdoor table for breakfast in the sun or an evening drink before it got too cold.
Being walking distance to the village was great as we could walk to buy our provisions or to eat at the local restaurant. Dinner at the Lisciano Niccone was memorable, and the vegetable garden where I was invited to pick the produce was showing signs of the end of the season but tomatoes,strawberries, and peppers were still in plentiful supply.
We look forward to another visit to Umbria and would enjoy the opportunity to stay at Lisciano Niccone again.
Brian and Laurine
Hello Willemijn & Saskia,
we are really happy about our stay in Lisciano Niccone. Especially the position is great! The centre of the village is on walking distance, with grocery shop and restaurant. The local football matches were a joy for the children to watch.
The apartment is fantastic. Only two small points for improvement: there is no electric kettle so we had to boil all in pans. I tried explaining this to Chiara but not sure she understood.
The umbrella on the terrace of apartment Bianco is too small, so there is not enough shade for breakfast outside. We did believe this was the best apartment of our Italy trip. Extremely clean!!!
Maybe we will come back next year for a week. Especially the location and quality of the finishings are fantastic. Also visiting the abbey was really special.
Many thanks, Marieke
Hi Willemijn and Saskia,
we are again overjoyed about our stay in Agriturismo Niccone, apartment Ceraso! Everything was totally fine. Too bad the owners do not speak English better, even the daughter is not able to express herself in English 100%.
An advantage is that it is now also possible to eat in the agriturismo, although the owners are not making a lot of publicity for this. Nice local dishes, made by the mamma with their own produce! We tasted twice and did enjoy it!
Very nice when you have kids.
We will certainly return!
Best wishes, I - B - L
All good, very satisfied all round.
Hello Saskia and Willemijn,
The quality of the apartment was above expectation. We had a great time. It is ideally suited as a base from which to make excursions. Hope to come back someday.
Kind regards, I.M.
Our holiday was a great success. Quality of the apartment, surroundings and pool is sublime. The apartment was spacious, modern and proper. We have been going to Italy for 10 years and never did we have accommodation this good. When we arrived there was only one other pair of guests which made the pool almost 'private'. We understood from the owners that in the future there will be a restaurant and wellness centre (sauna, jacuzzi, fitness room). Maybe this has some influence on the price I don't know but if so it is a place I'll recommend to anyone without hesitation. If I have to give a score 9.5 out of 10. Thinking about returning next year……
Regards, G. and M.
Dear Saskia and Willemijn,
Our stay at Lisciano Niccone has been very pleasant. Beautiful apartment, very clean and any defect or shortcoming was immediately redressed. We didn't enjoy full sun every day but nothing that can be done about that. The village itself at a few hundred meters distance is also nice.
Kind regards, van D.
Dear Saskia and Willemijn,
We have been really pleased with our holiday in Lisciano Niccone. The apartment (Agriturismo) was top. Big enough for 5, clean and very well maintained. Same goes for the pool which is cleaned everyday. The owners are very friendly and frequently asked us if everything was allright. One should be able to utter some Italian since that is their main language in which they communicate which offcourse is part of the charm and in the end we always managed.
Very charming is the fact that you can make use of their vegetable garden and fruit trees. Superb tomatoes and melons. The nearby village is quite small and a bit sleepy. The butcher a very genial guy sells fantastic meat and is very forthcoming with advice on what to buy.
It might be advisable to mention that Lisciano Niccone is located in a valley. If you want to go to Perugia, Lake Trasimeno and other cities you have to climb out of the valley first which takes some time. Conclusion: Thanks for the splendid vacation!
Best, C. and M.
Hi Saskia and Willemijn,
Our holiday more then successful. We can only come up with positive comments. The apartment (also the apartment fo our friends) was clean and spacious with two bathrooms, which is handy with three daughters (!).
The owners checked everything and passed by regularly, which we thought was very positive. They were friendly and we could use as much vegetables and fruit from the garden as we liked.
The location is good, pool is clean and the garden furniture is in good condition. If we come back to Italy, you will surely hear from us again!
Thank you and until next time, Eric and Ilse
We were very pleased with our apartment Bianco and the friendliness of the owners. The house was very clean and comfortable. Also the pool area was very well kept. The owners are very charming and we enjoyed many curious conversations with hands, feet, sounds etc. They really only speak italian. The children keep remembering the pizza-oven, the melons, tomatoes and courgettes from the vegetable garden.
It would have been handy to have some more cutlery, glasses etc. We were six and had to clean up after every meal, otherwise we didn't have enough. This was also positive: we never had a lot to clean at once!
We did not see the washing machine, but we never really asked either.
We had a wonderful holiday. The recommended restaurants even the children enjoyed. (Mimi in Mercatale and the one with the big tent in the back yard, just before the crossing to Umbertide.)
With kind regards, Th.
Reaction Villa in Umbria: the washing machine at Agriturismo Niccone is around the back of the house for common use. Ask the owners if you would want to use it.
Dear Saskia and Willemijn,
In July we rented the smaller apartment in Lisciano Niccone. The apartment was spacious, clean and cool. It was well furnitured. The pool was ideal to cool down and relax after a day's sights seeing. The pool was well kept and very clean. Lisciano Niccone is at a stone's throw and has a good and economical restaurant.
In short, recommendable! We do not have any negative comments.
Dear Saskia and Willemijn,
We rented a very beautiful apartment in Lisciano Niccone. It was all very well kept and well furnitured. Friendly owners who regularly brought us vegetables and fruit from the garden. It was all just fine and perfect.
With kind regards, Dick and Carla
From before 2009:
Hello Saskia and Willemijn,
We have had a fantastic holiday in agri-Niccone. The apartments were excellent (for our son who is confined to a wheelchair the bathroom was not very easy to get to, but this is often the case. Not suitable for him.) We have no complaints whatsoever. Everything was very fine. Well organised and friendly people. We made extensive use of the vegetable garden of the owners.
Best wishes, Toos
Dear Willemijn and Saskia,
We have had an excellent holiday in Agriturismo Niccone! (apartment Granaio)
The positive aspects:
Very comfortable apartment
Well maintained, we found everything in good conditions
There was enough equipmnt in the kitchen
The furnishings were nicely done
Everything was very tidy
Having a walk in closet turned out extremely handy
2 beautiful and luxury bathrooms
The extra space next to the kitchen was very handy
Well maintained swimming pool
Good quality sunbeds and umbrellas
Very friendly owners
Cosy little village on walking distance with friendly people
Possibility to make nice walks in the surrounding area
The negative commenst we would like to make are:
Not well situated
One has to drive on too many curving roads to get to the lake
Strange that not all had been rented, which made it a bit too silent
Difficult to communicate with the owners (they speak only Italian)
The hikes were not always well indicated.
This place is absolutely recommendable for those who like to have a quiet holiday at the pool side. All comfort is there. We also were satisfied with booking our holiday through you. The website www.villainumbria.com is excellent. Good follow up of our questions, clear info.
We left for our holiday in Italy without any anxiety and we returned home really satisfied.
Warm regards, Els & Jan and kids
thanks so much for your help, we really enjoyed our stay.
We booked apartment Ceraso in Lisciano Niccone through you. We would like to let you know that we were extremely pleased with the accommodation. The apartment was spacious, complete and extraordinarily clean. Also the garden and pool were well maintained. The information you had sent us before hand came in very handy and we used it a lot, making our holiday rally fabulous.
We will certainly recommend your website to everybody and a next visit to Umbria we can hopefully book something through you again.
Best regards, Math en José
We are just back from Europe and wanted to thank you for your part in our wonderful holiday. The accommodation was better than we expected and aside from the language difficulties, our hosts were great. I have already spoken with a number of friends back here in Melbourne who are planning trips to Europe and I will be recommending dealing with you for accom.
Until next time we are in Europe,
Many Thanks, Brian
Thanks for organizing our booking for us. The farmhouse is everything you said and more, just lovely.
The downpayment is 50% of the rental sum.
The balance has to be paid one month before arrival.
The security deposit is 150 euro.
In Italy the tourism tax has been introduced. Each town can decide independently whether to apply this tax. It is important to keep in mind that the prices on our website do NOT include the tourism tax. Where we received confirmation from house owners that they have to ask for this tax, it is written underneath the price table.
Villa in Umbria is an intermediary and as such rents out holiday homes and apartments on behalf of their owners. When you book we will be sending an agreement in which you will find the bank details for the down payment and the final payment.
We know each vacation rental personally and also the owners of all the holiday rentals we have in our portfolio.
