What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

A large group - 29 of us - stayed at Favola Umbra for one week in August. What a beautiful place! The kids had fun exploring the grounds, using the lovely pool, the bikes, playground, walking trail etc. There were several shady spots dotted around the grounds to seat us all for lunch and dinner. Inside the houses are beautifully decorated, spacious and cool. Laila, Daniella and Marco were so helpful in telling us about the local area and places to eat and visit. We experienced some fantastic local festivals that we otherwise wouldn’t have known about. Thank you so much Laila, Daniella and Marco for your fantastic hospitality and making our holiday so special. We hope to return as one week really wasn’t long enough!

Amazing venue for a group holiday

  • 5 of 5

Favola Umbra was an amazing venue for our group of 7 families - plenty of space, both inside the houses and around the grounds, lovely play area, huge swimming pool, table tennis table, bikes. Laila and Marco were on hand at any moment to help with anything at all that we needed - whether just advice on restaurants, or when we locked oursleves out! They keep the pool and grounds immaculate. We all absolutely loved our stay! Thank you once again :)

Fabulous Favola Umbra

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed two weeks at Favola Umbra. We rented the entire estate, as there were 24 of us. There was plenty of space for all. The cousins (ages 16+) had their own house, which they were thankful for, lol as did the adults. Our niece and her husband, who had eloped the week prior, stayed in the cottage so they could have their own space. Each apartment was spacious and well-accommodated. The kids' house had enough seating for all to dine inside on the few occasions we didn't eat outside.

As for the outside, there are not enough words to describe how amazing Favola Umbra is! The pictures are great but seeing the estate in person is breathtaking. There are stunning views from every angle! We swam, biked, hiked, and ran the trails. The view from the top of the mountain is gorgeous!

The location is pretty central to surrounding cities but you will need a car to get around. It's about a 30 minute drive to Perugia. Rome and Florence are a little over 2 hours away. Venice and Cinque Terre are about a 4-hour drive. If you prefer, you can catch a train in Perugia.

Overall, I can't recommend Favola Umbra enough! Laila, Mario, and Daniela were excellent and attentive hosts and Marco, the groundskeeper, was there whenever we needed him, helping us order food, get a taxi, showing us which trails to take, or where the blackberry tree was located. Laila was extremely helpful even before we arrived in having something shipped ahead of time, setting up a chef for a reception we threw for our niece and her husband, as well as answering numerous questions. All four were there to greet us upon our arrival. Which by the way, if you charter a large bus, the gate is too narrow for it to pass and you will have to haul your luggage up a long, steep gravel road, so pack lightly or make other arrangements, lol!

Thank you Laila, Mario, Daniela, and Marco for your part in creating a spectacular vacation for our family. It is definitely one we will not forget!

The property was great. There were 27 of us and six families. Very suitable for that group.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Private. A groundskeeper is present takes care of every issue that comes up. Laila is a wonderful host, quick to answer any questions and a pleasure to deal with. Ideal for a getaway, with a larger group of people.

Fantastic Location for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with three small boys (8,6,3) who have just spent an amazing 10 days at Favola Umbria. We travelled together with 6 other adults and 7 other children all aged under 10.

Our hosts Laila, Mario and Sara made sure we had everything we needed, and they were always available in person to answer questions we had about the local area etc. They really went out of their way to ensure we had some special memories of our Umbrian adventure.

The villa is set in a beautiful area with amazing facilities and full privacy. The grounds are very secure and well kept and all our children had a fantastic time enjoying the pool, playground and other facilities.

There are also some great trails right next to the villas for any keen walkers/runners. I'd recommend the villa to any family wanting to prioritise quality time together and wishing to have a central Umbrian location for day trips.
