Dream Wedding

I had my dream wedding at the breathtaking Domus Civita at the beginning of April 2018. One of the owners, Patrizio, helped me to plan everything down to the very last detail. The house is a work of art, the town and the views are also spectacular. But the service and hospitality by the owner and team working there is also at the same caliber. The owner Patrizio, the house manager Gustavo, and the caterer Valeria gave nothing short of bespoke and anticipatory service. Patrizio helped with all the details. I wanted a small wedding in Italy at a breathtaking location, little did I know that when booking this property, that I would also receive all the help that one would need to plan such an event —in a foreign country where you don’t speak the language nor live in. Patrizio made all the connections and bookings of the different vendors. He was so helpful in finding the perfect photographer - Fabio Mirulla, caterer - Valeria, florist, etc. I naively and optimistically thought that it would all be much easier than it was in reality. But thank goodness, this beautiful location in a picturesque ancient hilltop town, has the paralleled service level. My family and I could not have had a better time at Domus Civita; the grotto pool, views, wine cellar, architecture, the professionals that work there, the grand outside living area, the historic town with lots of hidden treasures to find, the Italian culture, made our time in Italy very charmed.

Wonderful time

Hi Patrizio, We had a wonderful time staying at Domus Civita! Your home is beautiful, the town is fabulous, and Gustavo took incredible care of us. We had an amazing week and we are so thankful to find your gem in Umbria. Gustavo went above and beyond in helping us, was a wonderful chef for our welcome meal, and our breakfasts were phenomenal. Your sister, Valeria, was so nice and we loved our cooking class and loved our visit with her and Chiara. The massages were amazing as well. It was so smart to have a full set-up in the kitchen and in the outdoor kitchen and saved us many steps! Thank you so much.

Fantastic time

Hi Patrizio The vacation was superb, the property amazing! We had a fantastic time; with being in the pool at 10.30pm during a full on thunder storm a highlight! Gustavo was brilliant, he's a real asset and helped/advised us whenever we needed him. Thanks for helping make our honeymoon so memorable; my new wife even shed a tear when we got home as it was 'all over'. Thanks for letting me know about the wine fees - that is a great idea by the way. You may well find some of our friends requesting a stay at Domus Civita... Cheers!

Simply Enchanting

Dear Patrizio - We enjoyed every moment of our stay at your most impressive villa in Domus Civita. It was simply enchanting. We also enjoyed Gustavo! He was an extraordinary host, chef and travel agent. He graciously arranged our transfers, made dinner reservations, scheduled massages and advised us on how to best plan our itinerary. His personality is so warm and inviting - I enjoyed all our conversations. He is a gem. We were also delighted to meet your sister - a fabulous chef! Her cooking class was so much fun. We are all going to try our hand at making fresh pasta back in Chicago. Again, we couldn't have been happier than to have our family spend time at your place in Domus Civita. By the way, we all came home in better physical shape as we mastered the walking bridge to the town.

Top of the list

We have travelled extensively throughout the world but must say that Domus Civita is up around the top of the list. We loved the house with its modern comforts but historical base and especially the caves. We spent many hours out in the beautiful garden and in the heated pool. Civita itself is magic and again, because of its unique quality, we would have to say it was the highlight of our 6 weeks away. We did enjoy our time around Civita especially on week days when the tourist onslaught was less! We have to say a special word for Gustavo who made our stay so exceptional and whose attention to detail, cooking and advice was very welcome. He helped us with reservations and so many other things and we delighted in seeing him around the town also. We spent several days “at home” but also visited Bagnoregio, Orvieto and Todi. I must say we did not want to spend all our days away from Civita but to enjoy those early mornings and late afternoons when we could take in all that Civita has to offer. We would certainly look at your other properties in Italy and Mexico and would certainly promote Domus Civita to all our friends!

Magical ...

Hi Patrizio, I just wanted to let you know how much all of us enjoyed our stay at Domus Civita. Your villa is nothing short of spectacular. The most common descriptive used by any of us regarding the villa and the town was “magical”. It was the most special vacation that I have ever experienced. Gustavo was beyond helpful. He has a delightful sense of humor and he went out of his way to address any wants or needs, generally before we knew we had a want or need. His lasagna was pretty good, too! We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class with Valeria and Giada. We learned a lot and the meal was delicious, especially the ricotta cake. We intend to try to duplicate the entire meal at home. I also need to mention that we had a couple of the best meals of our lives at Alma Civita. Maurizio is not only a talented chef but a wonderful host. He spent time with us on both occasions we dined at Alma and he shared a bottle of wine with us each time. Again, thank you all for a wonderful vacation.

April 2017

OMG Patrizio! That house was unbelievably amazing and we've stayed in 5MM homes in Tuscany before with Exclusive Resorts. I am in love with your style and your homes. I hope to visit and stay in plenty more in the upcoming years! Gustavo was awesome as well - incredible guy!

Beautiful and Magical

Dear Patrizio I would like to thank you for opening up your home to our family. What you created is so beautiful and magical. Everything was so tastefully and thoughtfully done. We had a wonderful time!! Gustavo was extremely accommodating, kind, helpful, I can’t say enough nice things about him. We had the perfect holiday and I am hoping to we can return next year again!

Wonderful wedding

We’ve had a few weeks to reflect on what a truly wonderful wedding day we had and we wanted to say thanks so much for sharing your lovely Villa with us. We were absolutely blown away with Domus Civita and it exceeded our expectations in so many ways. It certainly had the wow factor we were looking for, not only the town, but the attention to detail in the lovely design of the villa and the beautiful garden and pool. We would love to return every year if we could! Thanks for your help with planning the wedding, everything went fantastically. We could not have done without Gustavo, he was brilliant and went above and beyond in every way. He did such a good job at making sure all our requirements were met, and made it all so easy for us. When things were not quite right, he fixed them with ease, our flowers for instance were not quite what we expected but he managed to organise the florist to do a quick fix on the day, he set up the courtyard beautifully for us and did a great job at liaising with all the suppliers on the day. I think he did an excellent job at co-ordinating, he would be great at planning the whole thing from start to finish in our opinion. So many of our guests commented on how fantastic the wedding was, with many of the guests claiming it was truly the best wedding they had ever been to. We had such a warm welcome from the locals in the town, even though we don’t speak Italian, and many of them don’t speak English it was a non issue for us. Arianna was so lovely, she provided a delicious tasting for us and Rachel from the wine bar came over to help out with translating. We still haven’t received our photos but I will send them through to you when we receive them and also our wedding video. I can also highly recommend the band for any future weddings, Frances and the Love Hackers, they were spectacular and got the whole party dancing. Thanks again for helping to make our day a very special one.

Truly breathtaking

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at Domus Civita. It truly is breathtaking. We enjoyed our week immensely and we were so amazed by the house as well as the town. It was a very memorable vacation. Gustavo was excellent to work with and was happy to address all our questions. It was so great to be able to access the wine collection and try the local varietals!!!

Exceeded our expectations

Dear Mark and Patrizio Where to begin? Domus Civita far exceeded our expectations. This Family vacation and 25th anniversary celebration will be forever etched beautifully in all our memories. Aside from enjoying all that this whole house has to offer, we took up your suggestions of doing the Bolsena boat tour with Pierluigi and the vineyard tour at Sergio Mottura to add some variety to exploring the many hill towns (Orvieto was our favorite) ...both activities were fantastic! On the last day we went to Villa Lante and marveled at the water fountain and features of this unique garden. Thank you for sharing this amazing home with us.

Wish come true

Dear Patrizio In 2012 we stayed at Podere Palazzo which was absolutely amazing. You told us that you and Mark were building a new property and we committed then to come back with some help from coins thrown in the Trevi fountain in Rome!! Your place has been an outstanding location once again and our guests have asked us to join us h have asked us to join us here in awe. Thanks so much for all of your help and great meals Gustavo !! What a surprise and a blessing to have a birthday tiramisu delivered and baked by you on our first day for my birthday! Thank you so much

A Treasure

Hi Patrizio, We had such a wonderful time staying at Domus Civita. The house and the entire town are a treasure - a really perfect place to spend a week unwinding. As Gustavo may have related, we didn't do much (having two babies with us helped to scale back expectations quite a bit!), but the house/pool/garden etc. are so lovely that there was great incentive to stay put. Gustavo very helpfully set up a wine tasting at Paolo Bea in Montefalco, and we had a fantastic afternoon there. Their wines are so memorable!! I think I remember you saying you hadn't yet been, and while it's a bit of a drive, I think it was absolutely worth it. Thank you

Beautiful Wedding

Thank you for making one of the most important days of our lives so carefree and unforgettable! Everyone from Gustavo to the Valeria to Iside was incredibly helpful from the moment we arrive through our wedding. Pictures don't do it justice ... This place surpassed anything we could've imagined or dreamed of for our wedding, reception and gathering of family and friends. This gorgeous little town and Domus Civita will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable weeks of our lives. Thank you.

Amazing…special place

What an amazing, beautiful, special place. So glad to come here on our honeymoon, to have hung out with friends Old and new and to have the pleasure of Gustavo and the cats company! Every time we left and came back we were blown away by our setting. Every time we hit the pool I was blown away by our fortune. Thank you.

How Lucky

Patrizio, Mark and Gustavo How lucky are we that we bid and won the chance to stay at your house at a charity auction in Chicago. This is been one of the most unique magical and fun vacation we ever had. We love your beautiful house and a town of Civita. Gustavo was one of our favorite parts of the trip. We love this cooking and his company. Gustavo remember never close your eyes! We also love that our wine and cheese tasting, cooking class, massages, and our wine tour with Francesca. We hope to come back very soon.

Experience of a lifetime

Patrizio Our stay at Domus Civita was an experience of a lifetime! We learned something new each day and felt very well taken care of while living a much more simplistic life. Gustavo was so charming and always nearby to lend a helping hand! The swims in the Cave Jacuzzi will be a memory forever. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise.

Extraordinary place

Thank you Patrizio. We LOVED Domus Civita! The uniqueness of setting, thoughtful, innovative and playful design, the view, the character of the town, the loveliness of the people, Alma Civita Restaurant ... an extraordinary place and an experience that we will never forget!

House was a dream...

Patrizio, we had a wonderful time! The house was a exceeded our expectations. We absolutely loved Civita and would like to do a Christmas trip! We made friends there and will definitely be back. My grand daughter named all the cats which are now listed in your guest book. I have several friends in the high end travel business and have sent them your website along with recommendation. The restaurant Alma di Civita should be at the top of your list. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. I think another recommendation should be Pienza for a day trip with lunch at La Porta in Monticchiello (about 7 or 8 minutes away). I have been looking on line at your other properties. We are thinking of a trip first part of 2015, Mexico might be the right fit! Looking forward to our next stay!

Most beautiful place on earth

Dear Patrizio, We are now home after a wonderful experience at Domus Civita in Civita di Bagnoregio. Upon arriving at your house, Gustavo gave a tour that took our breath away. Every room or stairway was amazing. Everything was so clean. Food, alcohol, towels, books, wine, utilities -- all there for us to enjoy. But the house was the amazing part. Modern appliances, contemporary furnishings, but felt like you were going back in time as you took the stairway down past the wine cellar, then past the pool with kitchen, and then finally down to the Roman water cistern 2000 years old. Then the village from the 1300’s (with unbelievable history and challenges nature poses) and its nice, nice people. The cafes, the church, and the shops all greeted us so warmly. Gustavo cooked a great meal Sunday night. We also went to the church Sunday at 11:30 a.m. We loved the many cats and they loved us. I think we fed them a little too much. We went to Florence with Luca on Tuesday and had a great time visiting museum, shops, and cafés. Luca took us to Rome on Thursday. Saw Coliseum, Forum, Sistine Chapel, and Vatican Museum, along with Trevi Fountain. Obama was also in town. He had a slightly larger motorcade than us. Last day – Friday, we just hung out at the house. Gustavo came and visited – he’s wonderful. It was sad to leave Domus Civita and the Village. We hope someday to return to the most beautiful place on earth we have ever visited!

Warm and cozy place...

We had the awesome priviledge of staying at Domus Civita last week. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the villa is fantastic. What a warm and cozy place it is with all the great views and historic nature of the home. From the moment Luca picked us up at the airport, our drive to Bangnoregio, and our first walk across the bridge to the villa til the day we had to leave was a special vacation. Gustavo was a superb host and an excellent chef. The inital tour of the home was breath taking and all five of the floors are a joy. The wine cellar was my favorite floor :) The inventory in the wine cellar was certainly depleted once we had completed our 1 week stay.!!! The views from the garden out on the horizon are serene and the pool and hot tub were very nice to enjoy and relax with a glass of the local wine! Gustavo prepared a magnificant meal for us on our first full day and it was hard for us to leave to see local sites and tours but we did! Luca is a marvelous tour guide as we experienced Florence and Rome, Italy with him as our guide. He speaks fluent English and knows all of the sites to see and explore. I would highly recommend him to any of your guest as the one to take for a tour guide / driver. We went to many of the restaurants and my favorite restaurant was Alma Civita. What a special place with friendly local owners. We had the house wine and some homemade Grappa with Sordon during the day and his son Maurizio made a delicious dinner for the 6 of us. We spent each day walking the village, sitting down with a glass of wine while enjoying the outdoor surroundings, exchanging smiles with local folks, and stopping by the local historic church to greet Anna the caretaker. Patrizio you have discovered a treasure in Domus Civita and we have already reccomended to our friends! Thank you again for the chance to explore Italy for our first time and to rest each evening in a very special home. WE WILL BE BACK

Special Place

Gustavo greeted us at the bottom of the bridge on the night we arrived and he's been here for everything we needed including child proofing the place for a 2 year old, something with did not think was possible. What can I say except this is been the experience of a lifetime for all of us were here in this beautiful special place!

Wonderful Experience

Patrizio Thank you for the wonderful experience here at Domus Civita. Wards can't describe what you have created for your guests. This house in town are amazing and will forever be an awesome memory for Jerry and myself. Gustavo has been a huge bonus by preparing delicious meals and providing us with whatever we need to make this such a delightful vacation. Everything is here for us to completely relax and keep us wanting to extend our stay. We hate to say goodbye so I will say "a pin tardy". Grazie.

Simply Amazing

What can we say except that Domus Civita is simply amazing – it is much more impressive and tasteful than it appears on the Internet. As we walked over the bridge towards Bagnoregio – it felt like we had arrived in special part of heaven. All around us were scenic views of the Italian rule landscape interspersed with mist covered gullies - olive trees, orchards and old stone farm buildings. The atmosphere and romance are a critical part of Domus Civita – which stands out because one can almost feel the direct connection to multiple generations of people who have interacted with the building and landscape. For us, it is extraordinary to think of the Etruscan and Roman people working the stone around the town, or early tradesmen using the many caves to store their olive oil and wine. It’s almost as if you can feel the presence - something very special. Despite its antiquity, Domus Civita is beautifully laid out and extremely comfortable and modern to live in. The swimming pool, the tunnels and wine cellar created a great sense of fun. We desperately want to come back! Grazie Patrizio and Mark.

Exquisite week

Just returned from an exquisite week spent at Domus Civita. The villa is a perfect blend of the modern and the ancient, and Patrizio spared no effort in ensuring that we enjoyed our stay to the maximum. Thanks for introducing us to drivers Luca and Francesca, who whisked us everywhere we wanted to go in comfort and luxury; Elisabetta and Francesco, who provided an impassioned and fascinating tour of Orvieto, both above ground and below; Agostino and Marco for a much welcomed massage session at the villa; and Gustavo for his wonderful meals, his attention to our every need, and most of all for his friendship. If you have the chance to stay in Civita, make sure you have at least one meal at Ostaria al Forno di Agnese and enjoy the hospitality and beautiful food courtesy of the owner, Manuela. This was an experience of a lifetime, and we cannot recommend Domus Civita enough to anyone who has ever dreamed of the perfect Italian vacation.

May 2013
Unparalleled experience

Dear Patrizio It's hard to overstate how wonderful this country, town, home is. You have provided unparalleled experience by creating this lovely home inside this enchanting town. We enjoyed our three weeks, lived much as the locals do, and made some wonderful memories with the locals as well. And let me sing the praises of Gustavo, warm, charming, helpful and easy going. He has made an already excellent experience flawless. I do hope to come back someday, but if not I will have memories to last my whole life. And I will tell my friends (but not too many as I don't want the secret to get out). We wish you much success and thank you for a great time.

Truly a find...

Patrizio, we had a WONDERFUL time at Domus Civita! As usual, you both have outdone yourselves. Civita is truly a find. I was delighted by the fact that it is so pristine and untouched---no touristy shops, no plastic signs, no McDonalds, no billboards. Everything was tranquil and unspoiled. The shopkeepers were so welcoming and friendly. Jacob came back from his first foray to the cafe on the corner to say that "word had spread in town" and people were asking if we were the family "at Patrizio's, with the babies". We received the same warm welcome at midnight mass, where we have a picture of Geoffrey kissing the baby Jesus after making the procession to the manger. You were right about the Live Xmas Nativity--it was a real treat. That was one of the two nights that our cousins were with us from Geneva. They also had a great time and took a ridiculous number of photos. We also had a fabulous evening with Iside and her cooking class. Our meal was so wonderful that Jacob and I actually drove up to their restaurant La Parolina in Trevinano the following day for lunch. I'm sure Iside thought we were insane!

Heavenly beauty

Civita di Bagnoregio has been defined as unique, extraordinary, magical. And truly, spending some days at Domus Civita heightens all of these aspects, adding a new dimension: the private enjoyment of Civita's enchantment. When you are done visiting the environs, or strolling around in Civita (getting to meet Civita's inhabitants is one of the many charms of this small village, as it is to eat at the cozy Forno di Agnese), there is nothing more satisfactory than returning to Patrizio and Mark's house. Staying at Domus Civita felt like being able to privately enjoy the heavenly beauty of Civita. When all the tourists cross the bridge and leave, one feels left in a very special place: the large spaces and the hidden nooks of the house can only mildly prepare you to the stunning beauty of the garden. Sharing a glass of wine with friends in the private magic of the garden, or looking outside from the pool is an experience one can hardly forget.

199 WOWS...

They say a 'pictures tell a 1000 words' but in this situation they only reveal about 200, of those WOW is repeated about 199 times. Experiencing this home for yourself will be the only way that you can ever feel & understand the other 800 words. Entering 'Domus Civita' for the first time into the main room we were in 'lust' with the charming property, but it wasn't until we entered the caves out onto the garden and into more caves to discover the pool and alfresco kitchen that we were truly in love. It is here in the garden we spent much of our time, and our favorite time was in the evening, where you can lounge with wine, enjoy the Italian countryside and listen to the activity from town people in the valley below. Above ground, when you see day-trippers approaching the house to get a view of over the valley below, you look at them with this smug look, knowing of the secret, and that they have no idea what lies beneath their feet! In the house, from every room you can enjoy ample sunlight and fresh country breezes wafting in through the large windows with incredible views. The entire ‘Domus’ is filled with creative uses of repurposed pieces, some made by Patrizio [owner] himself. Sparse but not spare of personality, quaffed but comfortable, the space is easy to get comfortable in and feel like you are at home. The house itself in the evening provides a wonderful restful sleep from your days adventures into the surrounding areas. In fact you will find it hard to leave so anticipate late starts to your day and early returns to the house to enjoy all it has to offer. Civita di Bagnoregio is the quintessential Italian Hilltown, and experiencing the town with a stay at this property will be a memory that will long live fondly in your travel adventures.

Magical Atmosphere

Our family of 4 had the pleasure of staying in Domus Civita just this last August for a fantastic and very original vacation. From the moment you enter the town of Civita di Bagnoregio your are you are enticed by its peace and harmony. Every street, corner and vista a magical and almost mystical atmosphere and Domus Civita fully reflects the same sensation. In the house the ancient spaces and the modern interventions blend and contrast beautifully creating a unique feeling of harmony. We spent beautiful moments dining in the formal Italian garden thank you also to a unique kitchen placed in one of the caves facing it. More than anything we loved the pool and hot tub, also placed in a cave open onto the garden and with beautiful vistas of the town of Lubriano across the way. The house is so comfortable and filled with so many beautiful details, modern and old, which make it charming and truly unique. One of the most special places is the wine cellar located in an old underground water cistern…tasting wines in this beautiful space, where you breath the history and culture of the place, makes them really special! We will certainly be back for more! Thank you.

Incredible Stay

Thank you for an incredible stay at Domus Civita! It’s difficult to find words that capture the magic of this home and its fairy tale location. I have stayed at many unique accommodations all over the world but I have to say that this home is exceptional. First, the location is magical – a medieval village perched on a promontory – walking across the footbridge and through the Etruscan gateway I felt like I was entering a fairy tale! The hilltown of Civita is delightful – so peaceful with no cars-like going back in time; we had wonderful meals at local restaurants, enjoyed leisurely coffees and drinks around the charming town square – and the townspeople were so friendly. As for the house, you are to be commended for the phenomenal and obviously loving restoration of this historic property. I have never been in a private home with its own Roman water cistern and ancient caves! We had so much fun walking through the series of gorgeously lit medieval caves that led us from the main floor of the house down to the stunning Italian garden. The wine cellar in the Roman cistern is amazing, as is the meditation cave that you’ve outfitted with pillows & candles- so romantic! Floating in the pool and hot tub in a stone cave off the garden was like being on a movie set! We enjoyed great meals and stunning views from the garden gazebo. The living room and kitchen are beautifully designed and so comfortable – the terracotta floors, wood beams and the stone fireplace are gorgeous. And the artwork throughout the home is wonderful. The three bedrooms are beautifully appointed – I enjoyed the gorgeous views from the windows in the upstairs bed and bathroom. We also appreciated the great books you made available. To anyone considering an inspired vacation in Italy, I can most enthusiastically recommend Domus Civita.
