Great place to base our visit to Umbria. San Gemini was quiet, which is what we wanted. Il Cerro is very well appointed and a good place to come back to at the end of a busy day touring around the Umbrian hilltop towns. The only negative is the size of the pool, it is quite small and could use a cover to keep the bugs and leaves out. Also, it is more than a 10 minute walk to San Gemini, more like 20-25 minutes and the gravel road from the villa is quite steep so to go to dinner in San Gemini meant driving. Overall though we were very happy with Il Cerro and San Gemini.

Very attentive and very responsive. This is the first time we have used Tuscany Now and More (having used vrbo.com many times before) and would use them again and would recommend them to others. San Gemini was a great place to be based. Overall though we had a great time in Umbria and hopefully will be back soon.

Incredible villa with beautiful views and the perfect hideaway spot for a couple. We were 5 mins from town although it felt like we were out in the country, and the town was so charming. The house was extremely well run.

The villa was exactly as described in the brochure; secluded, beautifully maintained and provisioned, and in the most wonderful location. It's ideal if you wish to just relax, with the option of many excellent trips such as: the waterfall, and Roman ruins - both within a 30min drive. You will definitely need a car here, but the lovely local town of San Gemini is walking distance and is an ideal place to sit in the Piazza drinking coffee and watching the world go by - aided by the occasional Gelato, which are out of this world!

I have already completed this once, so to reiterate! the service from beginning to end was excellent. Clear, speedy responses to any query, and smooth process throughout. Would definitely re-book via Tuscany Now.

We have had a wonderful week at Il Cerro, enjoying the beautiful green surroundings and the peace of the countryside. Thank you to Elena, Piero and the housekeepers for a warm welcome and for looking after us so well. It was so good to have the pool to cool off in after the 30+ degrees of the afternoons and really magical to sit out on the terrace in the evenings listening to the crickets and the owls. We managed to visit many of the hill towns in the area - all fascinating and all worth a trip! Great food, great villa and great weather made for a perfect vacation. Thank you!

We have spent a marvellous weeks here at Il Cerro with our girls, Marion 7 years old and Juliette 4,5 years old. We were welcomed around midnight by Elena and Piero. They were the best hosts. The house was exactly as we thought it was going to be. We enjoyed the pool and the tranquillity. We visited some cities as Narni, Perugia (where we had the best pizza near the Duomo) and San Gemini. We loved the ice-cream on the plaza, Tenuta restaurant where we enjoyed the view during dinner and where the kids could run in the garden meeting other Italians kids. The best moments and food discovery were in the Taverna del Torchio, a place that we do recommend. we have loved the places, the people and the atmosphere around the villa. We had 2 wonderful weeks with our girls... we will come back

After a few days in Rome, it was a welcome relief to arrive at the tranquil village of san Gemini. We were welcomed to this beautiful villa by Elena and her husband Piero. they very kindly left us a welcome basket, which we thoroughly enjoyed (especially the wine!). I think previous guests have summed up the villa perfectly. We had a wonderful week here! Thank you!

After two wonderful weeks in Corsica we arrived at il Cerro at midnight to the sound of cicadas and the scent of rosemary. We enjoyed a glass of red wine by the pool (courtesy of Elena and Piero) and awake the following morning to see a small deer a metres from the terrace. Once again a perfect week of absolute tranquillity with a few cultural highlights. We leave tomorrow (for the third time) heading back to the alps with heavy hearts. I know we will return - such a beautiful spot is hard to find. (p.s. we really appreciated the new furniture and air- conditioning and the welcome package of bread, wine, butter etc.)

One big problem with Il Cerro - it's painful to leave! We are now packing to return to Rome and then the UK and I know that we both feel a sense of loss away from this beautiful house, from San Gemini and from Umbria as a whole. From our first moments here and the warm greeting we received from Signor and Signora Candelori. Rarely an hour has passed without one or other of us saying "I love this place". The Centro Storico is a truly wonderful little town; we both loved Bar Paretti (just inside the Porta Romana) where we have consumed shameful quantities of gelati, cocktails. Finally we echo every words of praise for La Taverna del Torchio - incredible food, charming staff and an unforgettable atmosphere. Enjoy your stay and be kind to the amazing wildlife! Ciao

Thank you Elena e Piero for your hospitality. We had a wonderful holiday at Il Cerro, very peaceful and had everything we needed. The pool was wonderful and the house very well kept. Also beautiful garden and view. San Gemini is very pretty, we have had many breakfasts and gelati in the Piazza. Taverna del Torchio and also La Pecora Nera were favourite restaurants. We visited many lovely Umbrian towns, including Orvieto (my favourite Duomo), Montefalco, Spoleto and of course beautiful Todi. A special mention also to La Vigna del Borgo in Acquasparta for such a beautiful lunch in the garden, a very varied menu, lovely fresh products and friendly and helpful staff. Please go and try the tempura of fruit and vegetables to start... We are sad to leave.

A lovely house in a beautiful setting! We did a lot of sightseeing, swimming and eating gelati! Highlight: Montefalco, Narni and the Osteria Pecora Nera in San Gemini which does lovely pasta and has very friendly staff. The team at Il Cerro were fantastic and very helpful. We will be back!

Just wrapping up our 2 week stay at Il Cerro... time to head back to reality, sadly. We've had a lovely vacation and enjoyed our time explorig the Umbran coutryside with our girls. We quickly adapted to the extreme heat and realised the importance of slowing down in the afternoon and having late dinners in the cool evenings. It feels like our own Secret Garden gateway and the tranquility has soothed our souls. Thank you to Elena and Piero who were always there if we needed them!! We will miss this oasis of calm. Cheers and happy travel to who is going to enjoy il Cerro! The Lopez family

Il Cerro is very peaceful and Elena and Piero have been very attentive ad responsive when an issue come up. We agree with other comments that it is more a 20 minutes walk than a 10 minutes walk from San Gemini. We did cook several meals at il Cerro and it is well equipped to do this. All in all a great place to stay. If you have a celebration we thoroughly recommend Daniela who came twice to cook for a wedding anniversary and a birthday. What a sweet heart and an excellent cook whit a passion for what she does. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at il Cerro and Umbria. Hopefully we will be back some day.

We have spent 3 delightful weeks at Il Cerro exploring Umbria, 11 days with friends from Canada and 10 days with family from the UK. Such a peaceful place. Il Cerro and San Gemini have turned out to be an ideal base to explore this beautiful part of Italy. We visited Carsulae (Roman ruin), Cesi (local hill town), Castate delle Marmore (waterfall), Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Porto Ercole (Mediterranean seaside village), Deruta (ceramics), Orvieto and Civita as well as spending many delightful hours exploring San gemini and enjoying coffee and pastries while people whatching and the world go by. Favourite restaurants in San Gemoni are Taverna del Torchio & Tenuta. We also had a fantastic lunch and wine tasting at Roccafiore near Todi.

We have enjoyed a fabulous week in Il Cerro on our second visit to this beautiful and relatively undiscovered part of italy. The spot is idyllic at all times of the day. The morning sun by the pool and at dusk under the loggia with the sound of cicadas and owls in the background. San Gemini is a beautiful and authentic village. Thankfully untouched by the terrible earthquake we experienced on the 23/08/2016. Both Elena and Tuscany Now and More were prompt to phone up and check all was ok. Having come from a week on the Etruscan coast we really relaxed at Il Cerro. The villa is well equipped, comfy and charming. We all have some wonderful memories of a beautiful family holiday and the children loved playing with the cat!

Our two weeks visit to lovely Umbria has come to its end, we have enjoyed every moment. It is amazing what treasures we have in Europe, just a short plane trip away, not even having to use our passports. we have visited the picturesque town of san Gemini, enjoyed the town square gelato and espresso, as well as the Tuesday morning market. Narni and the Rocca were amazing as well as Assisi, these places breathe of historic events. As a mini road trip we drove to Conero, it was nice to see the Adriatic sea, the mountains on the way are nice too. For wine tasting we recommend visiting Montefalco. People everywhere are helpful and pleasant. Apart from local wines, brachetto is a new favourite. The Umbrian kitchen has been fun to get acquainted with. We enjoyed a cooking class. cooking in the house some nights enabled us to explore foods we found at supermarkets. as a tip for a quite meal. the local Conads salsiccias are really good! As for the house, it is really cosy and it is so nice to have in lazy sunny afternoons. Elena and Piero, thank you for taking care of us. It was nice to see the San Niccolo Abbey (twice!). We hope the next guests will enjoy Il Cerro and Umbria as much as we have!

We arrived late afternoon to a shower of rain, to be greeted by Elena and Piero who were the key of our wonderful stay at Il Cerro. Their interest and genuine concern has been so delightful; an invitation to an amazing concert on the first evening at the Abbey, the guided tour given by Elena and Piero's hospitality and friendship have been wonderful. The house itself has served our needs so well. It's location is ideal. It's comfortable and peaceful. We took the opportunity to revisit local key towns, and made the acquaintance of Gubbio a fabulous medieval city above Perugia, the waterfalls at Terni. Eating, highly recommend Il Tempio del Giusto in Spoleto, and in San Gemini Taverna del Torchio and Il verde Olivo. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We've had a wonderful week at Il Cerro. The villa is very well appointed, with all you could need for a relaxing stay - we spent a lot of time by the pool and in the outdoor areas. A highlight of us was Nerina the cat such a sweet friendly local cat who loves treats, scraps of any kind. We loved San Gemini in particular would recommend Taverna del Torchio and takeaway pizza for the pizzeria by the main square. We also visited the waterfalls a Marmone beautiful if touristy. Todi was our favorite with a few more shops and restaurants and a range of architecture buildings to explore, great views and food at the ristorante pizzeria La Scaletta. Loved watching the bats by the pool in the evening. All in all a wonderful stay in a beautiful area with kind and helpful hosts.

San Gemini and Umbria have been a wonderful first visit to Italy. We have had a fantastic time and many lovely experiences visiting all the local sites and towns. Il Cerro is a very comfortable villa. Thank Elena and Piero and all the staff involved in the upkeep of the property. Elena was brilliant at dealing with anything I may have needed and was invaluable when our son felt unwell. We leave with some amazing memories.
