We were made to feel very welcome at Le Balze and felt instantly at home in the apartment and the beautiful surrounding gardens. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable and accommodated the five of us easily. We enjoyed the use of a nice patio and well equipped BBQ outside but also used the covered table area next to the pool in the evening. The pool was immaculate and there were plenty of sun loungers and shady areas to find. Valentina was there at hand to help when we needed it and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The property is a couple of minutes drive from Perugia which we found made a great central base to visit lots of beautiful hill top cities such as Assissi, Spello and Oliveto. If you are looking for a relaxing break tucked away in a quiet and homely setting yet within easy reach of lots of beautiful Umbrian destinations then we would recommend Le Balze.
The pool here is in a brilliant location with a lovely breeze and fabulous views. It is clean and surrounding gardens planted with lavender rosemary and other Mediterranean plants. The owners had had trouble with sheep getting into pool area ( hence a previous poor review) but new fencing has fixed that. This is a farm. The area is lovely and the nearby restaurant in Monteverde recommended by the owners was fab and had gluten free options. The apartment was a little basic but fine and reasonably cool given the heatwave we have had. All sheets were cotton and clean and cool. The owners were helpful and washed clothes when asked and showed the children how to make cheese from sheeps milk. The family dogs were so friendly.
