We were literally welcomed like old friends which was amazing given we had never before met our hosts, David and Chrissie!! After several hours of travelling from the other side of the planet, it was so much appreciated. We arrived late in the evening and Chrissie had taken the liberty of providing some breakfast for us the next morning. It's the little things that make all the difference. We stayed two weeks in the Il Fienile cottage that sleeps 4-6. We are a family of 4 with two children aged 9 & 11. Il Fienile is a farmhouse full of charm and comfort. There is so much to do, not only at Casa San Gabriel but also exploring in the many lovely villages close by. The country walks through the Umbrian hills were breathtaking, guided often by their pet dog Cuba! Views down the valley as far as the eye could see, - all the way to Assisi. All the guests really loved their famous pizza nights where you create your own toppings and have them cooked in a six hundred year old bread oven!! This was a highlight of our trip. It really was like being part of the family. Chrissie and David were full of brilliant advice on where to go and what to see, based on your own likes and dislikes and nothing was ever too much trouble. We are all looking forward to going back one day to visit our 'old friends'!! This place is very special!
