This rustic villa is away from it all, though not totally secluded, so you won’t feel completely isolated. There is an attached property (owned by another couple), which was also let during one of our weeks, but the layout of the gardens/villas is such that you can enjoy your privacy. The pool, set at the other end of the stunning garden, is incredible and you won’t want to leave. There are plenty of sun loungers, tables and chairs and pool towels are provided, which is another bonus. Time spent relaxing and listening to the gentle hum of honeybees on the lavender and watching swallowtail butterflies was heaven. Seating areas under fig and walnut trees provide welcome shade for family meals or you can sit under the vines just outside the house and spot lizards darting about or watch the hoopoes on the lawn. If you’re very lucky (and we were!) you might even see a red squirrel, which made an appearance a couple of times and a hare. There are bats at dusk and magical fireflies as well as a nightly lullaby(!) from frogs somewhere close by. A nightingale was still singing during our first week and we were treated to the purr of turtledoves and of course the beautiful dawn chorus. We went for a few early morning walks and were thrilled to see deer and a boar with her four piglets; sadly no porcupines or pine martens. There’s an amazing selection of books on flora and fauna, as well as books/information on the local area, maps, novels, DVDs, CDs and games. The beds are comfortable and having two singles in the middle room, which can be made up as a large double was really lovely. The villa is extremely well kitted out. Assisi, Cortona and Perugia are all wonderful places to visit for day trips and there is so much to explore. A couple of fantastic restaurants, only a short drive from the villa are Restorante I Girasoli Di Sant’Andrea as well as the adjacent winery/vineyard where you can buy olive oil and delicious wines and Le Capannine di Sommavilla – both too good to miss! If you love peace and quite, nature and places slightly off the beaten track then Vasciano is the villa for you. Hilary and Jack have worked tremendously hard to make it the perfect home from home with an unbelievably gorgeous garden. Replies to e-mails were always prompt and everything was very well organised. We do hope we can come back another time.

The place - all appartments are very nice, well prepared to hoste a big family. The view is great - from the top of a mountain. Last but not least - very nice swimming pool that not only the kids can enjoy!

When you walk through the gates the view just stops you because it is so beautiful up in the hills. We traveled with 9 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone without stumbling over each other. The rooms were spacious and each had its own bath. The best part which isn’t in the pictures on here is the new pool area. The ping pong table has been moved to the porch of the villetta and the pool house now is four walls with glass doors on 2.5 sides. The pool house has a kitchen area, couches and a table along with a stereo system with speakers outside too. The outside of the pool house has a very large stone patio that is stunning. It has 4 different sitting areas and a covered area with a BBQ and new pizza oven and a large stone table. We spent most of our time in the pool and pool house area. It was a wonderful surprise. The owners were very helpful and the packet they provided was very helpful, especially the directions since you have to use coordinates to find it on Google Maps. The owners also provided information on different activities such as catered meals, truffle hunting, bike tours, pizza chef, wine tasting, salami tasting, babysitting and a couple other activities. These are arranged by Cecelia who was wonderful to work with. We did the catered meal, the pizza chef and wine/salami tasting. I would recommend booking activities with Cecelia because is a wealth of knowledge about the area.
