Guestbook comments from the owner

5/5 A magical place for gathering, hiking, relaxing

Helen/New York City-Date of Stay: May 2008

This is the real thing - beautiful, elegant, restored with great care and good taste. The whole house, including the pool, gives dramatic views in every direction; the facilities are luxurious, and there are plenty of places for a large group to both come together as a whole, and split up into quieter areas. The location is excellent, giving access to the incredibly cute and well-appointed town of Apecchio; but also to some of the most satisfying day-hiking in Europe - fabulous meadows full of flowers clinging to the side of dramatic slopes with views that go on for a hundred miles across the wild Umbrian landscape. There are also good restaurants within a short drive; and easy run to the hypermarket, which has everything a gourmand could want. A stunning home-from-home. The owners are friendly, and the local helpers are very capable, accommodating, and speak English.

Notes on accommodation: By special arrangement: a trip to San Ansovino is an opportunity to relax, a chance to visit Assisi and Urbino, and simply to enjoy the peace and serenity of Italian country life. Perhaps you'd like to learn a little Italian, cook a special dish, or visit the Opera. You might prefer to have a guide take you siteseeing, or even truffle hunting, we can often arrange this. Simply contact us for more information. Children at Sant'Ansovino: The owners of Sant'Ansovino have two young children of their own (6 and 9), and bought the monastery as a unique place for them to enjoy their holidays. The grounds offer idyllic exploring opportunities, and places to build dens, play football, and generally have the freedom to be children. To keep them safe the pool has been fenced off, movable guards are available for all fireplaces, and there are two travel stair-gates for guests to place where they will.
