Peace and Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Le Balze was wonderful! The garden is beautiful and so peaceful. We sat out every morning having our coffee and croissant and found ourselves leaving for our sightseeing much later than planned as we so enjoyed our mornings in the garden. The property is perfectly situated for all the sightseeing in the area. There are so many beautiful medieval towns in the area to visit. Spello was our favorite with Assisi coming in a close second. We also had a wonderful day on Lago Trasimeno with a boat tour out to Isola Maggiore. We ended all of our days back out in the garden enjoying wine and the nice Umbrian breeze. It was everything we had hoped for and more!

Valentina was a wonderful. She emailed us a list of everything in the area that included all the shops and restaurants to all the towns nearby and what they had to offer. It was very useful! It was a wonderful holiday and we plan on returning again in the future.

Beautiful villa in a tranquil setting, close to everything, and friendly and obliging host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four weeks in Le Rose, at Le Blaze. It was everything we hoped it would be. Our apartment was clean and comfortable and the facilities within it, excellent. Tucked away in a secluded part of the grounds we felt like we were in our own little villa.

We were able to purchase local produce and shop at nearby supermarkets, only a short distance by car. The excellent cooking facilities meant that we were able to cook our own meals on many occasions.

The secure parking, with easy electronic access was a bonus, and the WiFi coverage was excellent.

We made good use of the excellent swimming pool, and it was a great place to relax on a hot day, and meet other travellers from many different countries.

Valentina was very welcoming, as were the rest of her family, including two little four legged friends(dogs), who we grew to love. Nothing was too much trouble for the family, and they were always concerned that we had everything we needed.

A good pizza restaurant was recommended by Valentina, at nearby Montebello, with massive pizzas at an unbelievable price. There are many good restaurants to choose from in the Perugia area.

It was an ideal location for visiting throughout Umbria and southern Toscana. Valentina provided lots of valuable information on places to visit, which we took advantage of. A couple of places not to be missed are Citta Delle Pieve and Bevagna, just enchanting and off the tourist track.

Thank you Valentina and family for making our stay so enjoyable. We cannot recommend Le Blaze more highly, but stay as long as you can, to experience the hospitality and the Umbrian experience.

Gewoonweg wederom een fantastische beleving

  • 5 of 5

Voor de derde keer zijn we bij Valentina in Perugia geweest, maar nog nooit hadden wij verbleven in het appartement Le Rose. Een ding weten we zeker, de volgende keer boeken we weer daar! Wat een heerlijk appartement. Je hebt twee ruime slaapkamers met een tweepersoonsbed respectievelijk een luxe tweepersoons slaapbank, een royale keuken (met vaatwasser!) met 4-persoons eettafel en een prive tuin. En in de badkamer heb je naast een douche zelf een bad! Ook kan je de auto parkeren binnen de muren van de tuin.

Alles was zoals gebruikelijk bij Valentina tiptop in orde en zeer schoon en voldoende uitgerust met handdoeken etc. De honden van de familie zijn, wanneer je ze aanhaalt, ook een echte toevoeging voor het verblijf. We hebben echt wederom een heerlijke vakantie gehad, zowel qua verblijf als qua ontvangst door de gastvrouw en haar familie. Ze doet er alles aan om het verblijf (gedurende het hele verblijf) zo prettig en comfortabel mogelijk te maken voor haar gasten.

Grazie infinite Valentina, a presto!

Wonderful stay at Le Balze

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Le Balze near Perugia in the LeRose apartment for almost the entire month of May 2017. The apartment is beautiful, tastefully decorated, and well suited for cooking, etc. It is located in a large park like setting with a very nice swimming pool. Our three adult grand children joined us for over a week and loved the place. Our hosts, Valentina and her family were very helpful without being intrusive. She provided a list of fine restaurants, various cities and places of interest to visit. We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was and we would not hesitate returning there.

Io e mio marito abbiamo trascorso alcuni giorni alle Balze.

Bellissimo posto, sia per gli amanti del relax che per chi

ama visitare luoghi stupendi.

Immerso nel verde del suo parco e

dotato di una splendida piscina, questo paradiso si trova

a soli 2 Km. dal centro di Perugia.

I primi giorni abbiamo soggiornato in una camera con bagno

in attesa che si liberasse l'appartamento "Le Rose",

entrambi molto confortevoli e puliti.

I proprietari Valentina e Gian Carlo

sono persone adorabili e sempre disponibili,

così come lo sono anche i loro figli.

Una sera abbiamo chiesto alla signora Valentina

se poteva darci qualche consiglio sui luoghi da visitare

e lei senza pensarci un attimo ha preso carta e penna

e si è seduta accanto a noi. In pochi minuti ci ha fatto

uno specchietto con tutti i posti più suggestivi nell'arco di

una cinquantina di chilometri, raccontandoci anche dettagliatamente

i motivi per cui questi posti sarebbero stati da visitare.

Un posto da consigliare a tutti .

Noi siamo stati davvero bene.

Da non perdere, ne vale veramente la pena.

Daniela e Alberto.

Car: recommended

The property is in an exclusive and tranquil residential zone.

In our park one has the feeling and the pleasure of being fully immersed in landscape, nature and silence and in the same time the advantage of being close to the heart of town and very near to all useful services: in a couple of minutes' bus (or ten minutes' walk) one finds bank, post office, pharmacy, tobacconist, supermarkets, coffee bar, pizzeria, restaurants, bookshops, paper ware, clothing.

A few yards away there are football and tennis courts.

The bus stop is 50 meters from the garden gate.

The bus takes about 5 minutes to reach the old town center (Piazza Italia), the coach station in Piazza Partigiani (coaches leave here for Rome, Florence and the Umbrian medieval towns), the two stations in S. Anna and Fontivegge.

The airport is 20 minutes' car; the hosts will be happy to pick you up, if possible; there are, however, coaches to and from the airport.

This location enables to visit the wonderful town Perugia and the other old Umbrian towns very comfortably, even without a car.

Assisi, Todi, Bevagna, Spello, Umbertide, Passignano and the Lake Trasimeno are at about 20/25 minutes' distance; about 45 minutes to reach Gubbio, Orvieto, Spoleto, Norcia. In less than two hours you can reach Rome, Florence, the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian sea and the wild uncontaminated Appennini mountains.
