We recently had the pleasure of spending a week in Umbria and were thrilled we chose to stay at L'Ariete. Andreas, Martina and their lovely dog could not have been more welcoming from the warm greeting we received upon arrival to the time that we left. They were always available should we have any questions or need suggestions. L'Ariete is the type of place that leaves you wishing your holiday was just a bit longer.....
The gardens were gorgeous and in full bloom while we were there. Having chosen a self catered apartment, it was quite enjoyable to be able to use some of the fresh herbs from the expansive gardens to accompany our meals. We unfortunately did not get a chance to sample Martina's cooking but were quiet tempted by the lovely smells that wafted from her kitchen.
The apartment itself was quite spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. We really liked that the bedroom faced the back woods which had lots of scented cedar trees and birds singing each morning. We even got the chance to see a nightly show of lightning bugs which we'd not seen for years.
I would highly recommend L'Ariete to anyone looking to tour around Umbria and even venture into Tuscany. It's location is perfect and combined with the large pool is a great place to return to each afternoon to relax. This is what a trip to the Italian countryside is all about! We hope to return someday soon.
