It was my first experience, and I loved the place. Francesco always very friendly and cordial. The people who work there always received me well and incorporated me quickly. A place for nature lovers.

I had the best time at Il Cantico. Beautiful place, inspiring nature and great staff. Easy to visit Perugia from the hotel and nice little villages like Passignano around the Trasimeno Lake. There's a place nearby called Umbria in Vespa where you could rent Vespas or e-bikes to be able to move more freely. I would love to come back one day.

Cantico del natura is a beautiful pleace and all the workers are quite nice, I'm glad to have met all of them.
The work in the resort is real and I helped cleaning rooms, watering plants, sweeping or organizing the kitchen after breakfast . I also could help the chef (amazing person and my preferred work) but I did it few times because the preference was given to help in the rooms.
At Cantico I cycled, I walked around the region, I swam in the pool, I ate a lot and I got several ride with Danilo to Perugia.
It was an fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone willing to work!

Il Cantico, close to Lake Magione in Umbria, is breathtakingly beautiful. Francesco was very easy to communicate with and really nice, and helpful, and his wife Monia was absolutely the best. She took me for a little day trip to a nearby medieval town, told me about Assisi and Allesandro Manzoni .. everyone helped me practice Italian. There was no shortage of work but also no pressure to do more than I was comfortable with; the gardening tasks taught me a lot about the region's climate. It's remote but walkable to shops, down (and then back up :) mountain trails. I definitely recommend :-)

A experiência como um todo foi muito proveitosa. Tirando alguns contratempos por causa de algumas tarefas que excediam o limite do possível, a minha estadia foi ótima! O pessoal que trabalha à noite no restaurante são super amigáveis e agradáveis! Giuseppe e Raquele, sempre muito solícitos! Vale a pena a experiência.
