The borgoo is a calm oasis set high on the Umbrian hills with stunning views over the beautiful Niccone valley. It is warm and welcoming with large airy rooms and a typical country kitchen with modern appliances and every kitchen utensil you could imagine. The guardian knows the area well and is friendly helpful and an invaluable source of local knowledge. The owner is very helpful and really wants his guests to enjoy Umbria as much as he does. We had a lovely week exploring the area and returning "home" to San Lorenzo often to delicious locally prepared meals. These can be ordered in advance and delivered or cooked in situ by a delightful local lady. Absolutely amazing to have a dinner served in the baronial dining room after a tiring day of sightseeing! The guardian was also able to shop locally before our arrival. in an adjacent valley is an authentic family run pizzeria which deserves more than the one visit we managed! We had a wonderful week of exploration and relaxation and are already very much looking forward to our return to San Lorenzo next year

After travelling and sightseeing for 2 weeks around Italy we wanted somewhere for the family to relax. The pool area and views from the terrace provided the perfect place from which to do this. It was also a pleasure to find a home with all the necessary utensils, books, games one might need in addition to a lovely welcome pack. All in all, a delight and thank you to Anna and Joanna for the ease with which they dealt with our booking.
