Staying at the Loft in Paciano was truly an experience of a lifetime. The loft itself is gorgeous - modern with every convenience and completely outfitted, no detail is left out. It was just like being in a good friend's home. But the real experience is the village and area. Paciano is a medieval walled village - truly the walls were built in the 1300's. It is like stepping back in time. The property manager was lovely and made all the arrangements for us which made the trip so easy. And the people are so welcoming and friendly. Steps away is great cappuccino or lemon cello - you might even dance the night away with locals. There are three outstanding restaurants in the village with incredible food to enjoy. It is only six miles to the train station, so it is easy to get to Florence or Rome or other large cities if that is your wish. We rented a car and spent a week travelling to villages all over Umbria and into Tuscany. We found great shopping, great food, beautiful scenery and it was all so relaxed. When you combine the outstanding accommodations with a countryside of unrivaled beauty along with friendly locals - it really is a wonderful vacation. I hope to visit again and am telling all my friends that it is a spot not to be missed.
