best holiday EVER
Submitted: July 14, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
My husband, 2 teenagers, 13 years and I stayed at Asproli in June this year. Everything about it was so perfect. The house is sp beautiful inside and out and is perfectly equipped for family holidays. Our kids are nearly 14 and I thought it might have been a little quiet for them, but not at all. In fact it proved impossible to drag them away from Asproli with the exception of just 2 days out. However we ate out in Todi every night and days just blended in to one idyllic blur!
The area is magical and the little "estate" of houses is picture book pretty. Masses of roses, jasmine, lavender, fruit trees etc. all surrounded by gentle rolling hillside countryside and fabulous woods.
We have been to many parts of France, Spain and Italy and this was the most beautiful area and property we have ever been to . I know it's such a cliche but the photos really do NOT do it justice.
Todi is really gorgeous, much nicer and more real than places like San Giminiagno in Tuscany. Nice shops, great restaurants and little bars, coffee shops and gelateria that we really loved. we also went to Assissi which we also really enjoyed and would love to go back there.
It is the first place that we have stayed that we ALL intend to return to.
There was so much that we intended to do and just never got around to. The pool is fabulous and so too the savannah tennis court. Also the walking in the area is excellent, even in the heat! We saw hawks and buzzards, heard a cuckoo, saw every colour of butterfly, fabulous jewel coloured dragonflies that looked like they had flown off the set of Avatar and fireflies at night. Asproli just conspired everyday to hold onto us.
If you are looking at this and wondering if you should book, then don't hesitate.
