We stayed at Pian di Cascina for 9 days during April and found it to be a very convenient and comfortable base for travelling to the areas of Umbria that we had intended. We were two families, 4 adults and 5 children in total. We stayed in the (3 bedroom) Gubbio apartment and the (2 bedroom) Assisi apartment, which are co-located at the end of the row of apartments in a converted barn off the main building. The location was chosen for proximity to Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia and other places that we wanted to visit (Urbino being the furthest but still a very comfortable day trip). The caves at Frasassi were also close by, although we didn't know about them until we got to the villa (they are spectacular and well worth a visit). Paul and Isabel were lovely hosts. Very keen to help and always available to do so, but otherwise very unobtrusive. The information provided in the rooms regarding local towns and attractions was fantastic. Detailed instructions on where to find the best parking when visiting local towns can make a big difference! Paul and Isabel also organised an Easter egg hunt for our children (and theirs) on Easter Sunday which was a lovely touch. The accommodation was clean and very thoughtfully set up for children in particular. The furnishings were not luxurious, but were perfectly comfortable and appropriate for our group. The views are spectacular at the villa and on the surrounding roads. Isabel is a wonderful hostess at the on-site restaurant. The food was amongst the best we had in Italy, and Isabel is a delight to talk to. And the very short journey home after a few nice bottles of wine with dinner was unbeatable! The homemade lasagne on arrival was both delicious and very welcome after the travel there. We had it on our last night also. The pool was not open as it was still cool when we visited, but it is big and certainly looked like it would be a wonderful spot to while away a warm summer's day. The grounds were fantastic for the younger children to run around in and get lost through the olive groves and small woodland areas. All in all we had a fantastic time and are grateful to Paul and Isabel for making us feel so welcome and ensuring we had everything we could need.
