We stayed with our 4 children at The Olivella for just over a fortnight and found both the property and region to exceed expectations. Having visited Italy on numerous occasions previously, the fact that we could get to the airport at Perugia in around 20 minutes yet feel we were hours away really added to the location of this property. More than that, Perugia is around 10mins away with plenty of good restaurants and sights along with many charming towns and villages. We visited Florence, Assisi and Rome during our stay - all within a drive away. Piergiorgio was the perfect host and we look forward to visiting again.
We were made to feel very welcome at Le Balze and felt instantly at home in the apartment and the beautiful surrounding gardens. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable and accommodated the five of us easily. We enjoyed the use of a nice patio and well equipped BBQ outside but also used the covered table area next to the pool in the evening. The pool was immaculate and there were plenty of sun loungers and shady areas to find. Valentina was there at hand to help when we needed it and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The property is a couple of minutes drive from Perugia which we found made a great central base to visit lots of beautiful hill top cities such as Assissi, Spello and Oliveto. If you are looking for a relaxing break tucked away in a quiet and homely setting yet within easy reach of lots of beautiful Umbrian destinations then we would recommend Le Balze.
