Very reasonably priced...

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. A few minor irritations such as no wine glasses and properly functioning kitchen rubbish bin would have been good, maybe some more comfortable pillows but I do bare in mind that it is extremely good value and the pool was a god send!

Très agréable et très reposant

  • 5 of 5

Séjour très reposant. Cadre très agréable et maison spacieuse avec tous les services attendus. Assez isolée entre Urbino et Gubbio c'est aussi ce qui en fait son intérêt : loin des circuits du tourisme de masse. On s'est régalé ... maison, parc, piscine et environnement.

Un posto incantevole

  • 5 of 5

Ho passato un soggiorno incantevole con i miei amici. L'appartamento era molto bello e curato. Il giardino e bellissimo come la villa. Un ringraziamento a i proprietari e a Donatella per la loro gentilezza e disponibilità. È stata una delle vacanze più belle che abbia fatto e non vedo l'ora di tornare.
