This agriturismo site, in the foothills of Corciano was a fabulous location for my husband and I to be located for a week in central Italy. Guiliano, our proprietor, and patriarch, was a wonderful host who helped us in every way that he could. This is a very family oriented place, making it very inviting. On Saturday night as we arrived, he and his family grilled out, served wine, and hosted a party for everyone on the property, much to our surprise. The pools are refreshing, especially since we were there during a heat wave. There is no air conditioning, but Italians have a few ways they can cope. We bought a fan for our upstairs bedroom and it was fine. Our best internet service was out on the front porch, where we had meals and drank wine anyway. We used this location to make day trips to Perugia (Umbria Jazz), Spoleto, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno, and more. We'd tour in late morning, early afternoon, then come back and hit the pool for a while, clean up and head to dinner at one of the local places (all great). LOVED this place. Thank you Guiliano and family for some great memories!!
