What People are Saying


“grazie alla visita nella vicina foresta fossile di Dunarobba (da vedere assolutamente) abbiamo scoperto questo ristorante ubicato in un vicino castello. A pranzo era chiuso: abbiamo mangiato tantissimo! Abbiamo iniziato con antipasti: insalata di farro e un superbo tagliere di ottimi salumi locali conditi con un buon vino rosso. E questo per noi sarebbe già bastato, invece a seguire un primo allo scoglio arricchito con fagioli (abbondate e buonissimo!) e ancora da un tacchino cucinato con olive taggiasche e uva nera il tutto contornato con delle ottime patate al forno. Una macedonia con sorbetto e ciuffo di lavanda per finire come dessert.

Abbiamo scoperto che a pranzo erano chiusi ma nonostante questo ci hanno accolto con i piatti che stavano cucinando per loro stessi! Un ospitalità raffinata e incredibile sotto ogni punto di vista.”

“What a really unique place to stay! The apartment we booked was off the stone street leading up to the Castle Sismano. It was a 600 year old construction that had all the comforts of modern day. The place is truly inspiring, with amazing architecture, views, pool, accommodations, food, history and more. You really feel transported away to another time and place when you stay here. The final and most impressive thing about Borgo di Olivo however, was the staff. Meg and her crew (including a few dogs) made us feel like family from the minute we arrived. They went out of their way to make it special and memorable for us and they certainly achieved their goal. I will remember this trip for the rest of my life. There was another family there at the time we stayed that visit every year from Germany as a family….they have the right idea! My husband and I are already thinking about returning next year as well! WOW!!”

Magnificent Pool”

“I couldn’t recommend this place more! It’s like living in a fairy tale! The casa verde is situated in a beautiful old borgo. The pool is just magnificent! You could sit there and enjoy the view of the castle all day long. We had the borgo for ourselves almost as they were no other guests, just the owner Meg. She’s a great woman sharing lots of stories and tips for visiting the surrounding. We can see she loves making this place magical with all her paintings and beautiful gardens. We had the chance to eat at the borgo’s restaurant, the food prepared by Simone was delicious! He is super friendly too. The appartement is very well decorated and furnished, very cosy feeling. The garden which can be accessed with 10 steps is perfect to chill in. We were travelling with a baby, perfect location for our first family trip. Thank you Meg and your team for making this place feel like a fairy tale. Please take us back!. “

“Due giorni che hanno del surreale, Immersi nella campagna umbra la casa si trova in un borgo medievale super caratteristico con tutte le comodità possibili, piscina ed un ristorante buonissimo con prezzi giusti! Ci torneremo di sicuro.

“Location molto bella”

“Location molto bella, cucina tradizionale con materie prime di ottima qualità. Meg e Simone sono delle persone calorose e cordiali, insieme a tutto lo staff sanno far sentire gli ospiti a proprio agio e coccolati in un posto da favola. Una gestione nata da poco che ha ancora probabilmente esperienza da fare ma la loro gentilezza ripaga di tutto.
