Came to this villa in late June 2012. Nothing to do with the villa, but a solid week of sun! Great location - we visited nearby Perugia (15 mins), Assisi (25-30 mins), Siena etc. The villa is up on an Umbrian hillside with a staggering view of the surrounding countryside - incredibly scenic. We spent some days by the pool and walking on the surrounding country roads, others days we left for nearby towns for sightseeing, shopping and dining. Great grocery store in Ponte Pittoli 5 minutes away, and several good restaurants.
The villa itself is large (to us anyway) - 4 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms upstairs, another downstairs, plus a side cottage with another bedroom + kitchen/living room. It was very private - while there are other houses in the vicinity we rarely saw a car or heard anything. We used the kitchen to cook some meals - 2 massive dining room tables, 1 inside, 1 outside - plus other small bistro-type tables in front and behind the building. Fresh herbs growing outside which we used for our meals.
Comfortable living room with good internet connectivity - it was sufficiently sheltered from the sun to be quite cool. The mid-day Umbrian sun is powerful, but between the living room and the pool we were fine in the hottest hours. Very lovely place for a large family or group of friends.
