    See above please.

    I have used bookings many times and have always found the ratings to be accurate however on this occasion I have been left wondering. The villa is very tired and unkempt. Can’t believe I am in Italy and the croissants on offer were in packets?? The breakfast very poor. Really no English spoken and given that the property is out of town could not even offer any assistance on where we could eat. The pool room was a shambles and filthy. Every chair or couch was covered in dog hair. Would not recommend this property at all.

    No pool as described was a huge disappointment.way too many cats and kittens..and dogs..very overgrown.. all felt neglected.the once lovely pool room now a distasteful array of exercycles and massage chairs and a hot tub.along with a disused bar .no toiletries as advertised.no shampoo.half a cake of used soap on the bath.gorgeous villa but faded grandeur.

    The furniture was mostly beautiful and ceiling frescoes tasteful .but it had a sense of shabbyness..faded grandeur for sure.it could be divine.

    What a stunning Villa! on the outskirts of Vitabo stands this a beautiful Grand house. We arrived a little late and tried to call the owner who did not speak English but he rang Booking.com and they arranged for our arrival. He greeted us and welcomed us into his home and the need for the English language just didn't seem to be required anymore. He took delight in showing us to our suite which was spacious and beautiful. It had the largest private roof terrace we have ever seen, complete with sunbeds and furniture. The views are outstanding. The bedroom was spacious and decorated in cream. The double bed and the shower room were very large and well appointed. The cloakroom had a fridge with complementary water chilled for us. The single bedroom which we didn't use had a beautiful white whicker bed and sofa . The breakfast was outstanding with a large selection of foods to suit all tastes served elegantly. Our stay over night in such an historic house decorated with such a lot of personal and wonderful ornaments and artifacts was the pure luxury of a bygone era and we would have loved to have stayed longer.

    Beautiful villa in a lovely, country location close to a number of gardens we were visiting. The proprietor was most gracious and helpful about everything in relation to our stay, including helping us address an issue with our car. The rooms are large and airy. There are fantastic views overlooking a wonderful peony garden - the largest in the world. I would highly recommend this property.

    We loved our stay at Villa La Cerretana. The property is amazing, and right beside it is an amazing botanical garden. Our room was wonderful, and beautifully decorated. The owners are very friendly, and we wish we knew how to speak more Italian so we could tell them how much we appreciated them. Would love to come back!

    This is a fabulous place to stay. The old villa is wonderful and our room was spacious and light, with beautiful rural views. Ilario is a very warm and gracious host and Sabina who prepares the breakfasts is a gem. It's situated in a very small town with an excellent local restaurant. There are many places to sightsee to within an hour's drive, including Viterbo, Pitigliano and Civita di Bagnoregio, a true jewel. We loved our stay here and, if we return to Italy, will stay again.

    Incredible place; a bit difficult to find. Owner was great. I have studied Italian for 5 years and I was able to speak with owner and staff. I am not certain they speak English, but it would not matter; they would be able to accommodate any traveler's needs. We were a bit disappointed that the pool is closed notwithstanding I recall that the ad on bookings.com said it had a pool. Doesn't matter! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in the area, and I would definitely stay again.

    When you come to this luxury villa - you feel yourself like a Guest in the very hospitable home. Amazing and very warm attitude of the villa owner - signor Ilario - makes you happy during all the days of the stay. The amazing nature around the villa, vintage interior inside - all is perfect. The breakfast made by Sabrina is tasty and her very friendly attitude towards guests is hearty. All in villa is clean, beautiful and very elegant. With great pleasure we will come to this villa again and have a rest under regardful attitude of the signor Ilario.
