Our family of five, two adults and three children between 4-7 years old, stayed at Giuliano´s lovely place in Corciano. We stayed for 2 weeks, and had a great time from start to finish. Giuliano, the owner, tended to our needs and requests from day one. He was always willing to provide great service.
The premises of Le Gorghe di Valmarino are very nice, well kept and maintained. The area around the main buildings are cosy and intimate. We stayed at the Ascolana apartment, which was big for our family. The ap. was clean and was well equipped. It had three bedrooms, two big and one smaller. It also had two bathrooms which both were nice. It has an open kitchen and living room area, which is quite big. Outside the main entrance there´s a cosy area with a table and chairs for sitting outside, eating or enjoying a cold drink.
The area by and surrounding the pool are excellent for relaxation and fun and games. There´s two pools (one children pool). Both are nice and clean. The children pool is not as shallow as many children pools often are. The sun beds and parasols are all in good condition. The pool area never felt crowded, even though many of the guests were there at the same time.
The football and volleyball fields were both great to use when we needed a break from the pool-life. Both fields are located beside the pool area. If you want to go for a run, without running along the roads, this is possible within Le Gorghes premises.
This place has a great location, in an area which is not to busy, but not too far from everything. The beautiful town of Corciano is nearby. You can walk to the town, but it´s of course more convenient to go by car. There are a couple of nice restaurants in Corciano. There are many shops and supermarkets in the surrounding area, so you don´t have to drive very far to get what you want. Ask Giuliano to recommend restaurants for you.
Perugia is just a relatively short car drive away. If you want to explore many of the great sights of Umbria and Tuscany, that´s not far either.
One of the greatest experiences with this place are of course the hospitality of Giuliano and his family. You feel welcome and safe. If you have any problems, they will try their best to help you.
We hope we will have the opportunity to go back to this lovely place next year.
Thank you Giuliano and family :-)
