Carole was a great host and it was perfect for unwinding in the peace and quiet. We were sold on first glimpse of the photographs on this site; however, they really don't do the place justice - the views from the pool and the quality and style of the villa are fantastic. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. The garden is beautiful and the pool is perfect. Citte di Castello is very close for stocking up on food and wine and Carole is very knowledgeable and full of fantastic recommendations in the area! We visited La Pieve Vecchia (pizzeria) on two occasions, great food and wine and only a short drive away - lovely position to watch the sun set over the fields. We also drove down to Montefalco on a rainy day to visit the wineries. Arnaldo Caprai was well worth the visit as was the town itself. We will definitely be back!

My heart stopped as I approached the house ...it was everything and more than I had hoped for! Villa Vasciona is set in the hills with spectacular views, a wonderful garden with many, almost secret hideaways in which to sit and relax ...and of course a stunning pool. Hilary and Jack had anticipated every traveller's need and their obvious love for their home in Italy makes this a perfect holiday destination. The Villa is withing easy reach of all the wonderful Italian cities and hill top towns on our visiting list and we enjoyed returning in the early evening for a swim in the pool , supper in the garden and watching the fireflies dance in the moon light. Simply perfect! It was so hard leaving it after three weeks of heaven!
