Location is quiet and relaxing (all for our sole use). Great place for families with young children (the fenced pool area was very useful for us). Owners are very helpful. Pool is excellent. The villa is 10 minutes drive from the lake and the city of Orvieto (15 minutes from the highway). I would whole-heartedly recommend this property and hope to return soon.

The view from the terrace is spectacular, on a clear day you can see Lago Trasemeno. The place is clean, tidy and decorated nicely, and the owners are very accommodating. The area with local towns of montegabione and Citta della pieve is very typical of the region with authentic rural charm and friendly people, and of course the cuisine. Perugia is not too far away either with it's warren of medieval streets and old buildings. A great base for further travel in the region, we will surely return for another stay.

The house is well equipped, modern and homely. We enjoyed visiting all surrounding villages , with views and restaurants, bars. Then enjoyed cooking at home with the beautiful views of lakes and sunsets. Near the autostrada so Florence is only 2 hours drive. Orvieto is stunning as is Montefiscione. Both on the doorstep. We had a fabulous time at this property.
