Review 782: Agriturismo Caigherardi, apartment

Review by Ken Montone from OR

apartments on an estate near Montone, Umbria


1-26-04, Overnight


We were scheduled to stay the night in Montone at the Locanda del Capitano but found out upon arrival that they were closed for the month. (The person who operates their internet page didn't get the word that the hotel would be closed and accepted our reservations.) We were directed to the Agriturismo Caigherardi by some towns people.

This Agriturismo Caigherardi is just off the main road leading to Montone. It is a delightful group of buildings on very well-tended grounds. There's even an open air swimming pool. The rooms are large and comfortable in the old traditional Italian rural style. Large wood beamed ceilings, rural style furniture and large beds.

My son and myself had a two bedroom suite with a large common room that had kitchen facilities and a large fireplace. Shuttered windows open up on the beautiful view of the country side.

The Agriturismo has: a flat with 6 beds on two-levels with fireplace a flat with three beds on two levels a flat with four beds on one level with fireplace three flats with two beds on one level, one with fireplace a flat for disabled with one bed on ground level.

We were charged 65 Euros for both of us for the night. This was in late January so it wasn't the height of the tourist season.

The owners live on the grounds. Bruno and his wife were delightful people but spoke no English. As you can see, the weather was cold and there had been quite a bit of snow during the evening.

I would recommend it as a very comfortable place to stay and to use as a "base of operations".
