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.

Favola Umbra was breathtaking. The views!!! Wonderfully maintained, comfortable and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Favola Umbra was truly a home away from home. The driveway leads you up to this beautiful grand villa of stone and landscapes you could paint! Sara, the caretaker on the property, was there to welcome and help us settle in and then every morning and into the evenings, there to set up the pool, tend the gardens and pick lettuces for lunch or order food for when we returned from a long day touring Umbria. She and Daniela (Laila's mom) were so helpful with information on local events happening, mass times at the area churches and the many towns to visit for the day in Umbria. The location is very central to all, Perugia, Assis, Siena, Todi, Orvieto, Pienza, Spoleto etc!!

Beds were comfortable and the AC was a plus!! My family and my sisters family, 11 people, had plenty of space. More lounge seating inside would have been nice but honestly we were usually relaxing outside. The kids would have liked some board games or outside games like baci ball or house shoes. They have a great outdoor pizza oven but we didn't know how to use it. I think on our next visit maybe we would see if they could have someone come in and make homemade pizza with us!! :)

We were sorry to miss Laila, the owner, who was in holiday the same week. But she did come to see us the last day. Laila was most helpful during my time searching for a place to stay. She even called me at home and emailed a few times to checkin during our stay.

We hope to be back to Favola soon!!

Ciao, Ciao!!

Oh and there olive oil from there orchard is delicious!! They sent us home with some too!!

Wonderful Family Reunion at Favola Umbra

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in August at Favola Umbra for an extended-family reunion. We were 19 adults and 7 kids aged 1 to 7. We rented the entire property. All the participants loved the place, which greatly contributed to the success of the reunion.

Laila, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating throughout the rental process. She was very prompt in all her correspondence, and fulfilled all our special requests (cribs, highchairs, etc.).

Sara, the property manager, was there every day, throughout the day, and made sure we are happy.

The rooms were very comfortable and the kitchens well equipped. In the main apartment we were able to cook for, and seat the entire party of 26!

The grounds are marvelous and well taken care of. Lots of grass, secluded and shaded seating areas, a playground for the kids (swings, slide, ping-pong, basketball, etc.). The property is very large, includes two swimming pools which got extensive usage, two ponds for fishing, etc. A highlight for the kids was picking fresh vegetables (tomatoes, corn, etc.) and fruits and eating them.

A 10 minute drive away are a bakery (fresh bread and pastries every morning ...) grocery store and other shops.

In summary, a great place for just a restful vacation, or as a base for touring the surrounding Umbria - most of which is no more than an hour or two of a drive. Renting the entire property (as we did) or only part of it (what are called apartments) is highly recommended.

Fanastic place, location and lovely people

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous place, immaculately kept, nicely decorated lovely grounds, and fantastic, friendly, helpful people. There was always some one on hand to advise us about the best places to go for food or a trip out. Its also in the heart of Umbria and easy to get to all of those beautiful historic towns. I cant recommend it highly enough.

Great property and location, wonderful people.

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to recommend this place enough. We've been spending summer vacations in Italy for the past 10 years and this is by far the best place we've been to. Highlights: 1. Location - it's close to Perugia and roads leading to different parts of Umbria. 2. Property - it is beatiful and so well maintained! Apartments are very nice, extra care was taken when renovating them and it shows in many details. Comfortable beds, nice kitchen equipment are a great addition to proper mosquito nets in EVERY window and a working AC. Outside - every flower is taken care of! Large swimming pool is always supervised, with a great selection of sunbeds and chairs, and a lot of shade under plants. 3. People - hats off to Laila, Mario and everone whom we met there. It was a great pleasure meeting you :-) We've spent a wonderful week there and we are certain we will be coming back in the years to come.
