We travelled together with 6 other adults and 7 other children all aged under 10. Our hosts Laila, Mario and Sara made sure we had everything we needed, and they were always available in person to answer questions we had about the local area etc. They really went out of their way to ensure we had some special memories of our Umbrian adventure. The villa is set in a beautiful area with amazing facilities and full privacy. The grounds are very secure and well kept and all our children had a fantastic time enjoying the pool, playground and other facilities. There are also some great trails right next to the villas for any keen walkers/runners. I'd recommend the villa to any family wanting to prioritise quality time together and wishing to have a central Umbrian location for day trips.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Villa Caprile. The property, the house, the pool, all the accommodations met or exceeded our expectations. Our children teenagers and younger felt so at home, and we all enjoyed our stay. It was so wonderful to have this home to return to after short or long day trips to some of the most amazing places and towns that are all around. The location could not have been more perfect for the trip we planned. Thank you Dianne and Antonella and all the caretakers of the property for all your care and recommendations.
