This large house sits in a beautiful garden which has a farm on one side and the swimming pool on the otherside.
The house is divided into 5 apartments and we stayed in the one at the top. Giovanni was there to welcome us and showed us round. On the second day we got fresh eggs from his hens and he even gave us a wonderful bottle of wine.
The apartment itself was fine, and there were wonderful views from the master bedroom balcony. The terrace would have been better if you could see the view from back but you get a good view of the stars.
The positives are the wonderful owner, who was so hospitable, the great swimming pool, proximity to some lovely places, the flat was well equipped (washing machine, tea towels, washing up liquid, hand soap, cutlery, whisk etc).
The only negatives were the lack of an oven and the shower wasn’t very powerful but frankly that was no big deal as we tended to eat at least one meal out.
Spello (fantastic walled city) was about 18 minutes away and Foligno (with the best ice cream - Gelataria Crispini) about 20 mins away.
Perugia was about 35 minutes away, and as it is impossible to park there Giovanni advised us to park at Pian de Misiena (sp) near the stadium - where there is loads of free parking and you can get the mini metro (runs every 1-2 mins) and take 10 minutes to the Centre at €1.50 each.
Mirando made us feel very welcome and even came to our rescue when we got a little lost on the way to the house. Rooms are spaced apart on different floors which gives you some privacy if going as a group. The kitchen is small but very well stocked and a large dining table is in the central part of the house. The gardens are wonderful, with a beautiful olive grove just beyond the pool. There is a great restaurant two doors away, which opens on the weekend. Incredible food, very rustic and all the locals eat there.
There is a nearby town, only 10 mins away which has great shops for food. Some of the roads and the pathway down to the house is steep, you wont need the gym here. Parking is next to the house and then you walk down a path to the front steps.
Overall a very relaxing holiday, super views, with lots of nature made a great holiday.
