Client Reviews for Grillo

What a lovely time at Grillo. Quiet location, fantastic if you want a quiet holiday with no one overlooking you. Everything is there that you need. Pool, house, surroundings are impeccable, house very clean. Visit Cortona, Siena, Perugia. Perfect.

Our second visit and September again. Just as good as last year with even better weather. We love this place and saw, this year, two female boars and nine little ones. Pool of course wonderful after hot trips to Arezzo, Cortona and Orvieto.

Grillo, what a place. The peace and quiet is lovely. We visited Cortona, Gubbio, Siena, San Gimignano, all of which were great! We really enjoyed cooking our own pizzas (make sure you cook the bases in the oven first!!!).

We came to Il Grillo based on a recommendation. Some great family time spent in the pool and watching movies during the storms! Very welcoming, the pack was a lovely touch - the tart was gorgeous! Day trips to Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Gubbio, Tavernelle water park and Cortona. A wonderful week - thank you!
The Scott family

We've had a great holiday in these serene & tranquil surroundings. Do not miss the evening spectacular! Front seats for the fire-fly display. The well-equipped kitchen has enabled us to produce our own version of Tuscan fayre that was well received by our husbands. BBQ great, pizza oven fun but need more practice. Hornets & zanzare annoying but we coped.
The Rhoder party

What a villa! An amazing place, beautiful location and a great standard. We're on our honeymoon in Italy and this week has been a stop gap before moving onto Roma. It was a great getaway and fantastic place to get some R&R in.
The newly weds

We have loved the peace and solitude of this place. House, pool and garden excellent for relaxing and being away from everything else. The museums and churches of Cortona and Citta di Castello much enjoyed when we did venture out.

Grillo is a lovely place to stay. The welcome package was unexpected but totally amazing; so full of wonderful "goodies" and a lovely touch! The weather this week hasn't been as good as it could have been but we've still managed to visit several places (Florence, Siena, Cortona etc) to avoid the rain and have had a wonderful time. The last Sunday here was lovely & hot so we had a great time using the pool, taking it easy & relaxing.
The Harris family

Wow! What a place! A big thanks for the welcome hamper, much appreciated. A fantastic place to chill out and relax but also a great base to explore Tuscany & Umbria. Like others have said Gubbio and Siena are a MUST to visit. Lazy days around the pool and BBQ evenings (with plenty of wine!) are also very special...All in all one of the best holidays we've had!
The Cottom family

We have had a wonderful week, hidden away in your beautiful villa! We've all had great fun in the pool and relaxing in all of the lovely seating areas. When we could bring ourselves to be dragged away from the pool we enjoyed day trips to Assisi and Gubbio. We found particularly with Assisi it was best to get there early to avoid the heat and the crowds and to easily get a parking space.
