The bathrooms were small and the shower on the ground floor was better than on first floor. Amazing views and walks in the grounds. Susanna was a great host, she gave us enough food for our first meal, amazing olive oil from her trees and a wonderful chocolate cake. You do need a car and can then explore the beautiful towns and villages in the area.

Each visit has been different -- a special family holiday one year, with friends for a short break the next, and in 2016 one week as a relaxing break for just the two of us and the following week children and friends joined us for the week. Poggio Le Stalle is perfect for our purposes -- large enough for up to 10, always clean and well maintained, comfortable, relaxed with all facilities, and a pool to die for. The pool is a particular favourite of ours -- large for lengths, play and beautifully situated overlooking the valley and hills beyond: and just far enough away from the house not to intrude on the terrace. Poggio Le Stalle is off the beaten path ( which we like ) but still readily accessible. There are so many towns and places of interest to visit nearby. Rome can be visited easily by train from Orte, towns such as Todi, Orvieto, Spoleto, Assisi and special treats like Lago di Vico are all easy drives ( but start early to make the most of the towns ) and then there is gem which is nearby Amelia -- one of Italy's oldest towns. The owner Helen is a lovely lady and will go out of her way to ensure you have everything you need -- even down to a murder mystery game and costumes! You come as guests and leave as friends looking forward to your next visit. Would we recommend this property? We already have.
