Wonderful hosts, thinking of everything, though without intruding on our wish to relax and to have a simple, quiet time. The apartment is stunningly situated, both apparently on top of the world, with all Umbria beneath it but also is a part of the little collection of fine medieval buildings of San Giovenale, as well as a stone's throw from everything we could wish for in the way of cafes, restaurants, specialist food shops, churches, palaces, museums, historic wells, caves and numerous other sights and views. We spent a week wandering this way and that and were always finding something new to interest us. The apartment itself is charming. It is a cool refuge from the heat of the sun, fully and thoughtfully equipped and we could have happily prepared our meals there but in fact chose only to drink wine and eat peaches from the market at home, preferring to be thoroughly lazy and to try out many of the very many fantastic eating places around the town. We had such a relaxing holiday. Thank you so much to our hosts!
