We’ve had a great week. Ideally located to visit the sights in Umbria. Lovely apartments, fantastic location. We feel completely chilled. Alison and Ian, Devon.
Lovely apartment, great pool and beautiful location. What more could you ask for… Kathy and Keith, Wellington NZ
We stayed here for two weeks in Sept 2014. This was our first family holiday with our son (who was 8months old at the time) and we couldn't have picked a better location. The apartment is lovely - plenty of space, a massive sun terrace, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and an amazing freestanding bath (perfect with a glass of Prosecco in the evenings!). The rest of the grounds are also beautiful - the pool, gardens and play area. And - as advertised - the place is perfect for young families. Having everything there and ready to use made life so much easier - there was a cot, highchair, toys, DVDs and bath toys in the apartment on arrival and we also borrowed a pushchair and steriliser during our stay.
Location wise it's a short trip to several beautiful old towns like Todi, Perugia, Citta di Castello etc and set in a peaceful valley. Easy to get to and from the sights of the region but also lovely and quiet!
What really makes the place though is Paul and Anita's excellent hosting - they are extremely helpful and accommodating but also give you all the privacy and space you need to enjoy the holiday. We had a fantastic time and hope to return again!
