My partner and I travelled to Italy in June this year. We stayed in Prato Di Sotto for 6 nights and it was so special that it ended up being the place my partner chose to propose, on the balcony of the main house at sunset, overlooking the amazing Umbrian mountains.
Penny was extremely helpful and accommodating and gave us some champagne when she heard of our engagement. She was extremely approachable for advice on the area, where to go and shop and some great restuarant recommendations! We were also really lucky when we were there as were given the main house as it was vacant so had a huge place all to ourselves at no extra cost. The bedroom was gorgeous with amazing views and bed very comfy with lovely linen sheets. The only thing we found a little daunting at first was the drive up the dirt track to the house which was 4.5k but luckily my partner is an experienced driver and we got used to it after a couple of times.
We would definitely go back to Penny's and would recommend to friends. It was truly a magical place, built with love and lots of care and attention to ensure guests enjoyed themselves!!
