The setting is typically Umbrian/Tuscan and the property itself is lovely. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The heating on the pool meant that it was at a lovely temperature even early in the season before the sun really gets going. Trestina is the nearest town (10 min drive) and has all the necessary amenities with supermarkets etc. Cortona, Città di Castello and Umbertide are all 25 minutes away, very beautiful and with great restaurants, shops and evening entertainment and markets in the mornings. However, there are also closer restaurants with our favourite place only 5 minutes away in the next village. And we loved that we could by the odd item in the little shop in the village. Christina & Richard were fabulous hosts. They were on hand to offer valuable advice on everything from where to eat to the best places to shop (including the best markets to visit). We loved the fact that we could relax by the wonderful pool during the day and that there were so many lovely small to middle sized towns to visit near by. Fantastic!

The owners are friendly and the views are stunning except for an ugly bard built in front of the property that ruins it a bit. It is lower down the hill though so you can see over it. There was only two of us so we had enough space though I would imagine it would be crowded with the maximum number of 7. There are only 2 comfortable chairs downstairs so we used the settee and chairs in the upstairs mezzanine as our living area in the evening. The owners run a small restaurant at the side of their house which serves simple, fantastic food. It's only open Monday to Friday so if you arrive on a Saturday I'd suggest stopping off in a town on the way there for supplies. The pool was clean and large and there are several living areas in the garden for you to follow the sun during the day.
