We (2 adults and 2 under 12 year olds) had an amazing time at Casa Julian: the house was ideally located for explorations to the big tourist draws of Siena, Florence and the many stunning hill top towns that dot the Umbrian and Tuscan landscape as well as Castiglione del largo. Added to this, the wonderful Jan was a font of knowledge, wisdom and very handy practical tips which really added to the holiday, and our night at the local village fiesta, complete with trumpet playing Peter Andre lookalike, will remain with us for a long, long time. Thank you Jan!
I could go on and on praising Jan, the apartment and that part of Umbria, but perhaps it is easier to summarise just what an amazing place Casa Julian is by stating that my 9 year old cried both the night before we left, and on the morning we left (to go on to Rome for a few nights) because he had completely fallen in love with Casa Julian and the Castiglione del Lago / Lake Trasimeno area and didn't wish to go. We will definitely be heading back to Casa Julian as we've left a little bit of our soul there!
