This was exactly the type of place we were looking for. The house was perfect for our group of friends and we absolutely loved the décor. The place is very quiet with a nice pool and thousands of plants an flowers.The kids loved splashing around in the pool, and the grown ups loved sitting out in the evenings, watching the sun sink below the Umbrian hills! We discovered a gem!!!
