We had stayed at the Palazzo several times before and were dismayed to learn of the change in ownership which took place during our stay. As one reviewer said, it would be hard to ruin the idyllic quality of this place. The new management has wisely opted to keep on the staff so Elena is still there making breakfast.
As others have noted, the only negative part of the Palazzo Terranova experience is that hill. If only it were a tiny bit paved! We did venture out every day to visit the amazing towns in Umbria like Spoleto, Gubbio, Perugia, Torgiano, etc. Alas, there was always a bit of trepidation as we approached the hill. But ah, it is so worth it since when you are on top it is truly paradise. We hope that the new owners continue to leave everything as it is/was, except maybe that road...
