Villa Roncone, Umbria July 2013

We were planning a family holiday in Italy for ourselves and our grown up children and their partners. We had previously rented a villa in Tuscany which we liked but it was no longer available and with so many villas advertised on the internet – all of course showing their ‘best sides’ on their websites – we couldn’t decide on where to go, let alone which villa to choose. With great luck my wife found Merrion’s name in a travel magazine and made contact. The motto on her website says ‘nothing is too much trouble’ and the service that she provided to us certainly bears that out. With knowledge of our needs, she immediately recommended the Villa Roncone on the shores of Lake Trasimeno in northern Umbria as the most suitable for us and she was absolutely correct!

The villa is a farmhouse painstakingly restored by its architect owner and stunningly located in the middle of his family’s olive groves. It is certainly a magical place with amazing views from a large terrace looking out over Lake Trasimeno towards Tuscany in the distance. It is perfectly suited to a large family group (or a group of friends for that matter) and there is another smaller building if more accommodation is required. The facilities are outstanding. The large kitchen has everything needed to prepare meals for 8 or 10 people and there are several options as to where to eat – indoors or out – but our favourite was the terrace with stunning views. We enjoyed an alfresco breakfast there every day served by the delightful maid. The pool was stunning; not only is it a wonderful pool in its own right but the architect has located it in a masterful way so as to benefit from its beautiful views of the region.

Merrion also recommended the hotel Il Salviatino in Florence for us to spend a quiet week and again she came up trumps. This hotel is certainly expensive but it is worth it – the staff are amazing and the food is excellent.

We cannot recommend Merrion too highly. She has a deep knowledge of Italy and all of its customs and peculiarities and the properties on her books are second to none.”

I wish I were sitting on the terrace at Roncone with cool drink in hand watching the sun go down right now!
