We, a family of four, with two teenage girls, drove from England to this stunning part of that most stunning region of Italy, Umbria. The reception from Paul and Isabel was exceptional, the condition and furnishing of our apartment (the Villetta) was exceptional, the pool was exceptional, and the onsite service was - your guessed - exceptional. Where else do your hosts enquire whether you need bread in the morning and deliver it to your windowsill (with or without fresh-picked raspberries)? While some establishments provide a few essentials on arrival, Paul and Isabel stock two baskets from which you can choose to purchase. While the norm in self-catering accommodation is mixed sets of utensils and barely adequate appliances, the Villetta, offers facilities very nearly as good as home.
All this in incredibly peaceful and attractive surroundings with a magnificent swimming pool. Really 5 star.
