Traumhafte Tage in Umbrien

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05/02/2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2012
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
  • Review Submitted: 19/12/2012
  • Date of Stay: May 2012
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!

Umbrian Hideaway

  • Review Submitted: 13/12/2012
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2011
My husband and I spent two weeks at L'Ariete at the end of September and early October. It couldn't have been better! Andreas and Martina are warm, friendly and helpful and made our stay very special. The charming rooms are spacious, clean and well-equipped. The location near Montone is perfect as a home base for visiting the many beautiful hilltop villages, although we found our favourite days were ones spent relaxing and enjoying all that L'Ariete had to offer: Al fresco dining overlooking the rolling Umbrian hills, swimming laps in the large pool, helping Andreas harvest grapes, and enjoying tomatoes fresh from their garden! We look forward to visiting our friends Martina and Andreas again sometime at L'Ariete!
