Review 5131: Owner, La Fattoria del Gelso


Review by Jay V from PA

8bed/6bath house (including annex) in Cannara, Umbria


July 2, 2011, 7 days


The location was just outside the town of Cannara and just a short drive away from Assisi, Perugia and Cortona.

Nearby Amenities

It was just a 10 minute walk into town where there was a grocery store and restaurants.

The House/Apartment

The villa was in great shape, with nice furnishing and decorated with many local ceramics. It comfortably accommodated 17 of us.


It has a beautiful pool and garden area and is situated in the middle of farmland.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The furniture was in very good shape and more than enough seating for everyone.


The bathrooms were a good size, clean and updated. There are two toilet rooms off the living room which made it easier for those rooms that shared a bathroom.


The kitchen is equipped with commercial grade appliances, two refrigerators and plenty of glasses, cups, pots, pans, utensils, etc. There is also a pizza oven just outside the kitchen.

Problems or Bonuses

There were definitely no bad surprises. The villa, location and weather were as good or better than we expected.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The two local people we dealt with most were both wonderful. Not only was their English great, but they were full of good information about the area and enjoyable to deal with.

Originally saw the property through the SlowTrav Listing.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We all highly recommend this property and would definitely look to stay here again.

Things to do in this area

We had a dinner catered one night and had a pizza night where we learned to make authentic Italian pizza. Both of these events were a lot of fun and the food was fabulous (especially the pizza I made).

This review is the opinion of a Slow Travel member and not of slowtrav.com.
