Situated a few miles from Citta di Castello up a few interesting (!) switch back turns - you arrive to a magnificent setting and a very friendly welcome.
The property has been in the same family for many years and managed by a lovely husband and wife team (Salvatore + Angelica) but the winning ingredients are Tania their manager whose enthusiasm and can do approach is abundant - she's also wonderful with children. And Antonio the chef who makes food that is way above the hotel's general 3 star rating.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - they just want you to have a lovely stay
Rooms are very simple, somewhat old fashioned and, and the bathrooms are very basic but clean and plentiful hot water.
A huge pool, tennis court, and space for children to run around, play on the footie pitch, shoot some hoops or play volley ball. There is also table football and table tennis. And lots of local walking
If I was to add anything it would be to have a proper sitting room / comfortable sofas and chairs in the reception area
It's not a hotel in the traditional sense (in our view) rather it's a middle ground between l'agriturismo, a villa rental, and a hotel. They do hold weddings as there is an tiny ancient chapel, there was a wedding during our stay and it didn't interfere in our stay rather, it was charming to watch the bride and guests arrive :)
An easy family holiday suited to those who wish to stay put relax by the pool, play tennis and while away the day or to those who like to spend days exploring but want a nice base to return to in the evening
We're looking forward to returning
