Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from the warm welcome as we were met from the station, through the comfortable room, delicious food and guided tours that Steph took us on. It was like staying with friends, we had a great time. Nothing was too much trouble and we thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay. I would love... More

My daughter and I were made most welcome and we had a really good time during the 4 days we were there. We were so well looked after - it was just like staying with friends. Steph took us around to various places, showing us some of the many delights of the region. Excellent food, both when 'eating in' and... More

Steph and Derek are so welcoming and helpful. The house is beautifully furnished throughout. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable and clean with a balcony and a lovely bathroom. We only stayed one night and had a wonderful breakfast. Have experienced Derek's cooking on another occasion though - it was amazing! Great location for lots of local sights. Did... More

Our second stay at La Serena, and difficult to add anything new to the existing reviews. Steph and Derek as welcoming as ever! Their knowledge of the area is invaluable, i.e: places to go and things to see. During the week the four of us went (with Steph) to 2 Village Festivals and a fantastic late afternoon/evening on the Tuesday... More

wonderful base for fab mini break away in the Umbrian region. Hosts helped us with local knowledge, we did tours of vin yards, castle villages, Perugia, and the nearby lake. The Hotel is home from home with every convenience to make you really comfy in this purpose built hotel. Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.Excellent fresh local food.

We have just returned home from a fabulous holiday based at La Serena and have promised ourselves we will definitely be going back! Its location is perfect for exploring the many beautiful and historical Umbrian towns and villages, but it nestles quietly between fields making for a peaceful stay. Derek's cooking is wonderful and his varied and plentiful breakfast will... More

From the moment you arrive at La Serena you are treated as a welcome and important guest. The facilities have been carefully thought through for the convenience, comfort and enjoyment of the guests and the standard of accommodation is second to none.

La Serena is a beautiful house in the heart of Umbria and we were most wonderfully looked after by our hosts Steph and Derek. Each day started with a varied and healthy breakfast and ended with one of their lovely dinners or else a visit to an excellent local restaurant . There were so many places to visit in between....

I have just returned from an amazing week, learning sewing and dressmaking skills, with Steph, at La Serena in Umbria.
