What a place! We spent two wonderful weeks in this perfect hideaway. Penny, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful without beng intrusive. She has a wealth of knowledge about local restaurants, markets, walks etc.... The accommodation was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The swimming pool was clean and we had it to ourselves most days! The scenery from our terrace was stunning and we helped ourselves to daily pickings from the vegetable patch, grapevines and damson trees. Prato di Sotto is perfectly positioned for visiting Umbrian gems such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Todi and Gubbio. Two strong recommendations - staying at this place is a must and, if you do, make sure you have a powerful engined car to carry you up the road to get there! Oh, and be prepared to lose your hearts to Penny's adorable rescue dogs who will love to share your breakfastsand dinners if you give them half a chance!
