a cosy apartment in a lovely spacious garden

4 of 5
We had a very warm and Sunny fortnight at Sossogna.The garden is lovely , the pool was of great help to keep cool. The apartment is comfortable , the only disadvantage is the kitchen which is rather small. Apart from that : it was a lovely holiday thanks to the care of the very friendly owners!

Great get away for a family holiday

5 of 5
We were holidaying to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary and San Martino was the perfect venue. There was plenty of room for everybody to have their own space but come together for fun and games. The swimming pool was a definite hit with everybody and the lake also provided entertainment together with spectacular views of Civitella del Lago (which is the most delightful mountain village and well worth a visit) It was incredibly hot the first part of the week which enforced the relaxation but Orvieto provided plenty of distraction with shade. Barbara cooked the most amazing meal for us one evening, so many thanks to her. All in all, a fabulous holiday that everybody thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you
