Really enjoyed my baking lessons at La Serena in Umbria. Hosts Derek & Steph are efficient and relaxed. The excellent organisation meant that we managed to produce a remarkable selection of Italian breads and cakes. It was both a learning and a fun time. The master bakers Richard & Ruth giving the lessons, couldn't have been nicer... patient with our... More

Staying with Steph and Derek is just like staying with old friends. This was our 2nd visit, but they treated us just as well during our 1st visit two years earlier. La Serena is a lovely house set in the Umbrian countryside with lovely views across the nearby fields to the hills in the distance. We were here for a... More

This beautiful guest house has large, luxurious rooms and a fantastic swimming pool for use in the summer. Located just a short drive from Perugia, Assisi and some lovely villages and not too far from Rome and Florence you couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay if you want to explore Umbria. Steph & Derek and wonderful hosts who... More

My wife and I had not had a vacation in years. We live in Cambodia working for a charity and have travelled the world. On one of our trips we had stayed at La Serena. In deciding where to spend our 2 week Christmas holiday there was only one choice....La Serena. The location is superb. Near Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Florence,... 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 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
