I can hardly put into words what a glorious place this is! It suited us perfectly - comfortable, extremely well-equipped with thoughtful information left by the owners. Sure its not all singing, all-dancing mod cons but who wants that in rural Umbria? The villa has been restored to what it should be - rustic charm! We found beds to be...

We had an amazing time here! The main house is full of character, with old wooden beams, an ancient fireplace and quirky features - we were not surprised to learn that it could have once been a chapel.
