Our apartment was fantastically simple and chic - everything we needed and nothing we didn't - importantly it was lovely and cool as it is an old building. We took a device so the kids could watch a movie in the evening (there is no TV - there is free, good speed WiFi though), but this was all the nicer - no modern distractions, just lots of games and card playing. The pool is a really good size and temperature. What made it was the space around the pool - enough for football or hide and seek, and the fact you weren't sharing with loads of other people. No towels on sunbeds at dawn. Just enough other families to find a friend for a chat or the kids for a play... Martina's cooking is fantastic. We ate in the restaurant (or rather outside with the beautiful views of the valley as a back drop) a few times. Sheep were nibbling the grass below us and the scent of the rosemary and lavender intermingled with the Umbrian cooking, which was accompanied by several elderflower & prosecco cocktails! - How good can life get! We'll be back! Caroline and family.

Close enough to places we wanted to visit, but also lovely to just stay "home" and enjoy the lovely setting! We wanted to just unwind and do a few little day trips - and this was a perfect location for both. The very charming owners live on the property and had stocked the kitchen with basic necessities and enough food for a couple days, as well as some of their wonderful wine, olive oil, and lavender products. Enjoyed Most: The house, setting, and view! The house is very tastefully decorated with antiques, comfortable furniture, a great bed and linens. The kitchen was also very well stocked. The gardens were lovely and we enjoyed walking around them a bit. The little patio off the bedroom overlooking the valley was our favorite spot for a glass or two of wine each evening. The resident cats and dogs are very well behaved and quiet. They knew we liked them and greeted us every time we returned "home"; the kitties joined us for "happy hour" on our patio. (The cats are not allowed in the house, BTW). Also there was no TV! But great WiFi and a CD player with a wide selection of music. Perfect for relaxing. Enjoyed Least: Nothing!! Just a warning that the last 3 miles to the house are an unpaved road and it is quite bumpy. We didn't mind and took it slow, but tried to get home each evening before it got too dark. Surrounding Area: This area of Umbria has gorgeous hills and valleys with lots of tiny ancient towns. Assisi and Perugia is an easy drive away - and we spent 2 days in and around Assisi. We also visited to Cortona (of "Under the Tuscan Sun" fame). Locally we enjoyed Umbertide and Montone. Actually the landscape was so lovely that we tried to take small, back roads around the area just to go slow and absorb the beauty of the area. (However, if you don't like hilly, curvy road, this would not be for you.) Nearby Events or Locales: Montone is the closest small town, and it is not within walking distance unless really like to hike a ways (5 - 6 miles). It is a medieval hill town you can't really drive into the town. Umbertide is a little farther away and has several "supermarkets" with easy parking. There is a handy notebook in the house that lists places like shops, grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Tips or Restaurants: The house was very well stocked. And there w
