After 5 days in Rome we spent 3 days in Umbria with Capoccia Carola. We've been to Umbria several times before and this was the best spot so far. Apartment was immaculate, everything worked fine, beautiful location and convenient to all the places and things we wanted to do. We were at the end of October so didn't take advantage of the outdoor pool and other facilities. This would be a great place if you had children but we found it perfect for us 3 adults. Coffee, wine and an informal restaurant with surprisingly good food were all within a 500 meter walk although not visible from the privacy of the apartment itself. Loved it and highly recommend.
We had a lovely time at Tenuta Ricordi. It far exceeded our expectations. The grounds were lovely our apartment was spacious and we enjoyed the pool especially since Italy was having a heatwave. Our hosts were helpful and attentive. We would definitely return.
