The house lies in south-central Umbria on 5 kms from the village of Melezzole and 6 from Castel dell'Aquila. It lies in a hilly and quiet location with panoramic view. The property has a large garden with a 10x5 meter pool for private use of the tenant. The house is suitable for up to 5 persons (one twin bedroom, one double bed room - there is enough place to add an extra bed or a cot in the last room). It has a large covered terrace that overlooks the pool, equipped with table chairs, where you can eat and at the sametime enjoy the panorama. The outdoor oven can't be used by the guest (it can be easily damaged if not properly used). There is a barbecue at disposition to cook (the fireplace in the living room can't be used). There is a gazebo near the pool equipped with table and chairs. Baker, butcher and a little grocery store are available in the village of Melezzole.

Guido, the property manager was very helpful and was quick to sort out any problems that arose.
It would have been nice if there were more kitchen equipment e.g small bowls/containers and the electric toaster (shown in one of the photos of the kitchen).
Both toilets were difficult to use due to limited access in front of the toilet bowls.
We had a power cut due to an overload of appliances.
There was no information in the property that this could happen and how to resolve it.
The mattresses were hard and there was a badly stained pillow.
The restaurant called Semiramide in nearby Melezzole was well worth a visit.
The food was excellent and reasonable priced.It was closed on Tuesdays.
A welcome pack of basic provisions(especially if arriving late) and an information folder of the property and surrounding area would have been helpful.
Most of the other properties we have stayed in Italy have had a more personal touch. Perhaps we have been spoilt !!
We would not recommend this property to a friend or relative.
La maison est conforme aux photos! En campagne, idéalement située pour visiter les villes alentours (Orvieto, Spoleto, Terni, Todi...) a moins d'une heure de voiture.
La piscine est très appréciable, la vue magnifique, et la maison confortable!
In Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy, tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature, antiquities, historic centres and culture. The quiet of the countryside, good provisions and an inimitable cuisine are the great draw. This region is less touristy than Tuscany and this is especially appreciated by many tourists. It forms an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape and on the other hand making trips to beautifull towns like Todi, Orvieto, Narni, Spoleto, Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi. You can also easily visit – in day trips - famous towns and charming villages in the southern part of Tuscany such as Siena, Arezzo, San Giminiano, Pienza, Cortona, Sinalunga, etc. Many tourists visit also Rome from here, without staying in the city which is very hot in summer. It is possible to go by car (journey of 1h-1h30) or by train from the stations of Terni, Narni-Amelia, Orte & Orvieto.
