Lovely, superbly equipped villa in beautiful location. Owner could not have been more helpful.

5 of 5
It is not always easy to find a two bedroom villa. Not only did this property meet our needs, it exceeded expectations. Set off a quiet country road only just a mile outside a lovely hill top town, the views are stunning and the silence is disturbed only by birdsong. The villa has everything you could need - fully equipped kitchen, two modern bathrooms, washing machine, air conditioning in the bedroom and satellite TV. Outside there is a pool, barbecue and three outdoor eating areas. Montefalco has a good range of restaurants and cafes and a supermarket. We coincided with the festival so plenty of local colour. A perfect location for a relaxing holiday and visiting the towns of Southern Umbria. The owner, Reilly, is a lovely young man and was really helpful. Finally, Montefalco Rosso is an excellent red wine - make sure you include a tasting at Cantina Raina.
