L'ARIETE stands for peace, space and relaxation. The property in the heart of Renaissance Italy consists of 2 residential buildings and offers 6 independent spacious suites with 1 or 2 bedrooms (45-80 m² each) and fully equipped kitchens plus a private restaurant.

Traumhafte Tage in Umbrien

  • 5 out of 5
LAriete ist sehr empfehlenswert! Ich bin bereits da zweite mal mit meinen Freunden in dieses wunderschöne Landgut gefahren. Die Apartements sind traumhaft, von Licht durchflutete und sehr sehr schön eingerichtet. Wir hatten uns zwei Appartements gemietet, eines war schöner als das andere, mit Küchen ausgestattet die wir nie verwendeten da wir lieber die superfeine Küche von Martina genossen hatten. Täglich stand ein anderes umbrisches Menü auf der Karte, mit frischesten Zutaten aus dem Garten des Landguts bereitet. Da wir alle zusammen Wanderratten sind, waren wir tagsüber ständig in den Hüglen der Umgebung unterwegs und konnten uns an der Schönheit der Landschaft einfach nicht sattsehen. Wir unternahmen auch Ausflüge in die umgebenden Städchen und Dörfer, die eine wie in einem Film aus vergangenen Zeiten fühlen lassen. Wir können diese Unterkunft allen wärmstens empfehlen. Großartige Gastfreundschaft, wunderschöner Außenbereich und unschlagbares Essen. Vielen Dank nochmals auf diesem Wege an Andreas und Martina! Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!

Owner's Response: Es war uns eine Freude, Euch nun schon das 2. Mal begrüssen zu dürfen! Ich weiß, Ihr wollt heuer den Süden Italiens erkunden - schaut doch zumindest auf einen Espresso oder eine kleine Mahlzeit vorbei, wir würden uns freuen! Herzliche Grüße von Martina & Andreas
PS: Aus der kleinen Schafherde ist dank 5 Lämmern nun ein stattliches Rudel geworden

Insiders tipp - Hospitality at its best!

  • 5 out of 5
Lariete is a beautiful countryhouse in a tranquil corner of Italy, yet within easy reach of some of the Renaissance places we wanted to visit such as Urbino in The Marche, Arezzo in Tuscany or the lesser known Umbrian cities Perugia, Gubio or Orvieto. The property has an extra-ordinary position - overlooking the valley, with the medieval village Montone looking down on you. Comunication prior to our arrival with the Austrian owners was very professional, both speak fluent English and a couple of other languages as well, and they remained just as helpful and welcoming all week long - a rare level of hospitality we had never experienced before when travelling. We had an apartment booked with own kitchen - very well equipped, and we prepared some lovely meals; however, we also had dinner twice in the restaurant, where Martina, the Austrian manager with Italian roots, prepares fixed 3 course meals each evening. She uses mainly organic products from regional farmers, she has a huge garden with fresh herbs and vegetables, and the food was extra-ordinary good - no gourmet kitchen, but fresh, local dishes such as the wild asparagus which arrived handpicked by the owners on our plates - delicious! So, we really enjoyed our stay at Lariete, and will definitely come back in summer to relax for a couple of days at the pool, which is huge and has a wonderful position with views of the village above. At the moment the place is still an insiders tipp, 2012 was just their second season, so we recommend to go there soon before they become really popular. All the best to you, Martina and Andreas, and see you soon again!

Entschleunigung

  • 5 out of 5
Da es in L´Ariete etwas ganz Besonderes war, sollte der Umbrienliebhaber erfahren, was er ggf. verpasst, wenn er dieses kleine Paradies nicht besucht. Wir wollen uns nicht damit aufhalten, zu betonen, dass L´Ariete ein idealer Ausgangspunkt ist, um diesen wunderschönen Landstrich mit seinen kulturellen Schätzen zu erkunden. Nein, wir wollen uns ganz auf L´Ariete konzentrieren und wollen versuchen zu erklären, warum es so einzigartig ist und sich so wohltuend von anderen Unterkünften abhebt. Hier seien zuallererst die Gastgeber, Martina und Andreas einschließlich Laci (Hund des Hauses) genannt. Sie vermitteln einem ab der ersten Minute das Gefühl, angekommen zu sein, sich zu Hause zu fühlen und dass du genau derjenige bist, auf den sie gewartet haben und dich nicht nur als zahlenden Gast erdulden. Hektik ist ein Fremdwort auf L´Ariete. Andreas´ Zauberwort heißt Entschleunigung. Dies trifft es auf den Punkt und wird von den Beiden auch tagtäglich vorgelebt. Immer ist Zeit für einen Plausch zwischendurch oder einen wertvollen Tipp. Selten waren wir so tiefenentspannt, konnten den Alltag hinter uns und die Seele baumeln lassen. Dazu sieht man sofort, dass Martina und Andreas ein künstlerisches Händchen haben, denn viele, noch so versteckte Winkel sind mit einer unglaublichen Liebe zum Detail gestaltet, so dass sie es Wert sind, etwas genauer hinzusehen. Es wirkt jedoch nicht gekünstelt, alles scheint seinen natürlichen Platz zu haben, als wäre es schon immer dagewesen. Dies setzt sich auch in den Appartements fort, mit stilvollen Einzelstücken, wunderschönen Terracottaböden - einfach so, wie man sich es wünscht, aber ganz selten antrifft. Nicht zu vergessen auch die täglich variierende Tischdekoration im hauseigenen, kleinen Restaurant. Wir waren jeden Abend da. Das sagt wohl alles über Martinas Kochkünste aus. An einem der kleinen Tische entlang der Natursteinmauer unter einem Schilfdach sitzen, Martinas Zaubereien mit einem schönen Glas Wein genießen, Laci macht es sich zu deinen Füßen bequem – das war für uns der Höhepunkt eines jeden Tages. Das Restaurant und die kleine Piazza sind auch hervorragende Orte, um mit den „Mitbewohnern“ ins Gespräch zu kommen. Nach zwei Wochen haben wir sehr schweren Herzens, aber mit vielen neuen Eindrücken und unvergesslichen Momenten L´Ariete wieder verlassen müssen. Aber wir kommen wieder, und Sie? Fahren Sie einfach mal hin, L´Ariete ist jede Reise wert.

Wir haben lange im Internet recherchiert, und uns aufgrund der wunderschönen Homepage und der stimmungsvollen Bilder und Texte für L´Ariete entschieden. Unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen - so ein liebevoll geführter Betrieb ist uns auf unseren vielen Reisen nach Italien noch nicht untergekommen. Martina und Andreas haben hier ein kleines Paradies erschaffen, und ihre Begeisterung für Umbrien ist ansteckend. Ihre Tipps haben uns an Orte geführt, die wir wohl allein nicht gefunden hätten. Am Abend haben wir unter dem Sternenhimmel Martina´s Kochkünste genossen, den Nachtigallen gelauscht ...einfach schön! Ein großes Dankeschön an Lariete! Helmut & Maria

L'ARIETE is set amidst the Umbrian hills, in between the quiet and picturesque medieval hamlet of Montone and the vibrant Umbrian capital Perugia, just across the border to Tuscany and the Marche. Montone, voted one of Italy´s most beautiful medieval villages, is just a 5 min drive up the hill and offers good infrastructure for daily needs - grocery, bakery & pharmacy, post office & bank, a couple of restaurants & bars. Perugia, full of history, art, food markets, shops and typical Restaurants, can be reached via a toll-free highway in just 25 min. Lago Trasimeno is 45 min away from L'ARIETE and offers the chance for a refreshing swim and a relaxing boat-trip. Day excursions will get you to most of Central Italy´s famous places: The world heritage site of Assisi and Arezzo (45 min), the impressive architecture of Orvieto and Spoleto (1 h), the breathtaking beauty of Florence (1.5 h); for the nature lovers trips to discover the mountain scenery of the Appenin (45 min).

Other Activities: Truffle hunt

Golf: The 18 hole Championship Golf Course of Antognolla, designed by the famous course architect Robert Trent Jones jr. is just a 20min drive away.

The course is dominated by the medieval castle of Antognolla and is an unrivaled experience for both the professional and amateur golfer alike. Beautiful area, far reaching views, natural flora and the spectacular medieval and typical Umbrian architecture both inside and around the golf course.

Besides the course at the Antognolla Club you will also find a well equipped Pro shop, a practice driving range and putting green, as well as the charming Club House & Bar
