Nicely restored farmhouse with antique furnishings - beautiful setting in Umbria

  • 4 of 5

This property is a very authentically restored farm house. It is clean and well maintained. Our unit had two large bedrooms, each with a good sized bathroom and modern fixtures. There are lovely views of the countryside from the bedroom windows. During our visit at the end of May the grounds were covered with beautiful roses and other flowers. Giancarlo (the owner) knows the area very well and gave us good advice on local activities and restaurants. Towels, bedding, toilet paper and soap for the dishwasher, sink and washing machine were provided.

I want to stress that our experience was a good one. To be fair to others contemplating a visit, I will list some things to consider.

* If you require reliable internet connection, this is not the place for you. Internet is intermittent and not available in each unit but at a public spot in the garden.

* When we arrived on May 28, the pool was not open. If that is important to you, inquire before booking.

* We had a hiccup with the washer not working on day 1 of our visit but this was resolved by day 2. No clothes dryer except for Mother Nature's sunshine and a clothesline.

* Bring your own hairdryer.

Owner's Response: In the internet era people ,if they want to bring back pleasant,interesting memories,need more than ever good advices.A littel church in the country, a domed church mentioned in guides with a few words but a place were you could stay a long time watching the frescoed ceilings,the friendly baker , the antique market etc make the stay different,to be remembered.To be called by name and not just by the number of the room/apartment ,to talk about job , live , family,cuisine,politics is a way to get in touch with local life.

Lovely property with very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property and we have a wonderful stay. Whole place immaculate. Giancarlo could not have been more helpful listing suggested tours complete with a map and even helping us to arrange a hire car from the local Fiat garage which was great value. Beautiful clean pool and lovely location.

Liebevoll gestaltetes Country House

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben zu viert ( 2 Pärchen) die Wohnung Stratopolska bewohnt. Schöne mit tollen Antiquitäten eingerichtete Wohnung. Auch in der Küche hat es uns an nichts gefehlt. Giancarlo ist sehr zuvorkommend und hat uns auch seinen Grill zu Verfügung gestellt. Zahlreiche Tips und Tourenvorschläge mit entsprechenden Wegbeschreibungen haben wir erhalten und so schöne Dinge in Umbrien erkundet. Der Garte, sowie die Poolanlage sind sehr gepflegt. Aufgrund der dicken Mauern ist die fehlende Klimaanlage auch bei 30 Grad kein Problem.

Prachtig verblijf, tuin en zwembad

  • 4 of 5

Het verblijf is een prachtig gerenoveerde oude boerderij. De grote tuin biedt zon en schaduw, en een zwembad om korte baantjes te trekken en in te spelen. In de omgeving is meer dan genoeg "oude rommel" te bekijken. Verhuurder Giancarlo is zeer aardig en heeft bruikbare tips. Aanrader !
