perfect accomodation in a perfect landscape.
The villa was perfect and exactly like on the pictures - wonderful renovated. We all had enough place (12 persons), the pool was great and really big. The garden is very pleasant and smells like rosmarin! We had a wonderfil time there. Thanks beatrice for your kindness.
Lovely location, beautiful tower house, great swimming pool - but not private.
The description and frankly pricing of this property do not fully explain that there are 3 other properies(up to another 8 guests), 19 cats and the owner living on site. I did not realise that from your website desciption which is misleading. If you are happy to share and don’t mind cats then it is simply lovely but you do not have the privacy that many of us crave. Once you realise this it is still an extremely nice house over 5 floors and has lovely views and Beatrice the owner was really lovely and so helpful. The location for exploring beautiful Umbria is great, the views stunning and the facilities are good - with an extremely nice pool. I would have given this 5/5 if I had wanted to share the property which will suit many people but we have stayed in equivalent properties in Tuscany the last 2 years with similar facilities but total privacy. My suggestion is a clearer description, look at the owners website and then there is no room for disappointment - all the top reviews have been from people having the place to themselves which makes perfect sense. We did really enjoy ourselves but sense there maybe many complaints to come if the lack of privacy and 19 cats is not understood by holidaymakers before they arrive - we don’t mind the latter and we got used to sharing the pool and so it wasn’t a problem for us. Can’t thank Beatrice enough for making us so welcome.
I am sorry about your disappointment, which you did not manifest in any way while here, saying more than once that everything was absolutely perfect and that you were having a great time.
Moreover, I am sorry that you say that my website is misleading, as it clearly explains that there are 4 accommodations in the page ‘The Property’ (2nd page of the menu), which contains the descriptions of the four accommodations and links to each specific page.
Moreover, I am sorry that you say you were not prepared to have pets in the property, as there is a page of my website, ‘About me’ (6th page of the menu), which includes a photo gallery entitled ‘Our pets gallery’, with many pictures of the cats and the ponies.
Moreover, I am sorry that you say that all the 5 star reviews are from guests not sharing the property with other guests, which is not true because in July and August the four accommodations are usually fully booked, and anyway I don’t know on what bases you arrived to this conclusion. What you say can be true for a couple of the 14 five star reviews I have, you clearly quit reading at the first review of the list.
Next time you book a holiday I would recommend you to open the property website and have a look at the content, even a very superficial visit would have been enough to get all the information you needed.
To conclude, I would like to say that being misleading is not of my interest, I want people coming here to be happy and have a great time, and, frankly, I don’t need to cheat on what they will find here; I firmly believe that, because of the quality of what I offer, there’s no need to allure people with false promises, and my reviews are the proof.
most relaxing holiday
When I booked the Falco I obviously read all the reviews and I must say they were spot on. Beatrice is a wonderful host who offers help where needed and freedom when desired. We had the luck that for most of the days we were there (7) no other guests where there so we enjoyed the pool for ourselves, which was very nice and not cold. The rooms were excellent and the kitchen and living room is well equiped. Another plus, at least when you don't mind cats, is that every now and then a cat stroles along for a kuddle and crashes with you on the lounge bed by the pool. Or when bbq'ing sits itself at the table outside to be served diner. We loved it and made friends with a couple of them very fast. The town of Spoleto is surprisingly interesting and a lot of narrow uphill and downhill streets are there to be discovered. Also some very nice restaurants which Beatrice is more than happy to point out. The atmosphere of the place is easy going and has a certain grandeure that makes you experience that you are the king of your own caste in the hills of Umbria. The pictures on the website do not do it just. The bathrooms for example are very pretty in reality with nice glazed tiles and a modern glass sink but on the photo's it looks a bit 70's. Which again is not what it actually is. In short we loved our stay and would go back in a hart beat, life stands still for a moment and allows you to wind down and recharge.
Castle of Our Own in a Story-book, Idyllic Setting
When my husband told me he had booked us a castle of our own on a hilltop in Italy to celebrate our 33rd anniversary, I thought he was overstating it. Until I saw the online photo. And I soon found that photo did not do the place justice. As most beauty—the camera just does not capture.
We had arrived at Torre del Falco after several days of travel that been exhausting. We were caught in the recent British Airways debacle in London (beginning of our trip radically changed, luggage lost, etc.) and so by the time we got to Spoleto, I was a little emotionally and physically spent. My eyes perked up as we drove the winding road up to the flower-lined driveway and when we got to the top and arrived on the property, my eyes widened and were filled with the glorious, unimaginable view. And that was just when we met Beatrice! Beatrice met us at our car and was the loveliest of hosts. She took us to our castle, made us feel at home and did everything in her power to make sure our stay was the most special it could be. It truly was. My husband and I had the entire tower to ourselves with many rooms from which to choose, and of course, we wanted to stay in the top floor to have the pinnacle. Our view at the top was extraordinary to say the least. When something is indescribably beautiful, I like to say “It broke my eyes.” Torre del Falco broke my eyes and filled my heart. I would recommend Beatrice Panichi’s special, unforgettable place to all my friends and more. I will never forget her or her castle.
Dear Pam, you and John have been the most adorable and interesting guests a host can ever dream about, and I dare say that our friendship is very dear to me!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
SOGGIORNO FRA STORIA E NATURA
I rilievi morfologici che si incontrano attraversando la Valle Spoletana, luogo che segnò profondamente l’animo di San Francesco per le straordinarie bellezze naturali, sono per me di forte impatto emotivo, così come le architetture medievali di abbazie, pievi, torri e fortificazioni in pietra: sono affascinanti strutture erette sulle alture che dominano la valle. E’ proprio su un altura, a pochi minuti dal centro di Spoleto, che vengo attratto da una torre medievale in pietra denominata ”Torre del Falco”, nella sua totale compattezza e bellezza di struttura architettonica, che emerge nel verde dei secolari alberi. Qui ho ritenuto trascorrere un fine settimana, immerso per incanto tra storia e natura, in compagnia di sorridenti amici al bordo di un invitante piscina che ricorda gli abbeveratoi rurali e i mulini idraulici, tipici del luogo dove l’acqua diventa protagonista. Peccato che i giorni siano volati via ……ma ci tornerò!!!
Definitely my favorite accommodation in Spoleto
I have been to Spoleto many times and stayed in several places but I have to say that Torre del Falco is definitely my favorite one. Furbished in typical local style with some Medieval/ancient flavor, this place is immersed in the nature and surrounded by an enjoyable quiet and tranquility, perfect to rest. At the same time it is few minutes from Spoleto's town and the historical center.
The property includes a tall ancient tower with several floors, spacious rooms and an amazing terrace on the top where it is possible to enjoy breathtaking countryside views..a perfect place for the morning breakfast. It has also a master apartment and a spacious dependence all perfectly and tastefully furbished. Outside there is a spacious open are and a beautiful pool equipped with bed.The whole property is very clean and the landlady, Beatrice, is second to nobody for her hospitality and courtesy. She is very friendly and enjoys the presence of guests. I would strongly recommend a stay in this beautiful and peaceful place, where you can dream to jump back in the past and relieve the stress of your everyday's life,
