‘A perfect slowness. I will cherish our stay at Casa Poggio as one of my finest holidays ever.’ – Frederik Dewispelaere. 

‘What better place could we have chosen to celebrate all that is good in life? Thank you Tessa and Nick for sharing your beautiful house – restored with impeccable style and attention to every detail of family life.’ – Jim Webber

I can honestly say that, if I were to buy somewhere to restore, I should try to copy everything that you have done. It is fantastic; the new build, the brick and stonework, the shutters, the lovely cool bedrooms and patio with views and swings! – Georgina Boase

The perfect place to gather family together, including our lovely new grandson. There really is nothing I would want differently – even the storms and rain were beautiful. Thank you for this quiet corner of heaven. – Elaine Lemm

Casa Poggio is luxuriously comfortable in cooler weather – the pellet boiler and electric blankets kept us warm in the evenings, and the blankets in particular were much appreciated! – Anna Ellis

What can I say? What words exist to describe the joy of this house and this holiday? Honestly, I think I’ve never visited a holiday house in such a perfect location. – Iris Van Houwelingen

You should be so proud of this place. It was everything, and more, than we expected. A house for eight, just for the two of us? Such a treat. – Clare Ronay and Simon Pugh

‘We loved the fireflies, the stars at night, the constant birdsong even at night time, the views, the space, the cooking facilities, and the location so close to many other wonderful places.’ – Keira Langman

‘We saw 2015 in looking out over the whole Lazio plane, lit up by fireworks – couldn’t think of anywhere we’d rather be.’ – Sue Mulherin

'We've stayed in a number of different villas in Italy over the last five years, but this was definitely the best.'  – Helen Beddow

‘Loved the house and really felt it should be in one of the glossy magazines that you left and we enjoyed.’ – Ralph Sperring

‘We would love to return in the spring and do lots of walking and just be there, it is a special place in this mad world.’ – Lisa & Allister Henry

‘We had an absolutely beautiful time in your gorgeous house.  I literally cried with joy when I saw it!’ – Victoria Robinson

‘Tessa’s “tour guide” of suggestions were terrific. All the recommendations of places to eat lived up to their descriptions, especially the Orto Bio restaurant (the best meal we have had in Italy so far).’ - Andrew Tierney

‘Everything about this holiday exceeded our expectations. We are still reeling from how incredible your house is and how much love and attention you have fed into it.’ – Claire Paling

’I doubt that we could add anything to the previous comments other than to confirm that this is an exceptional spot. The views from the terrace are outstanding – and yes, you can see the Dome of St Peter’s on the horizon (208 degrees SW).’ – Michael and Ann W.
