The Owl apartment in country farmhouse 20 minutes from Perugia, Gubbio & Assisi
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

TThe Owl property - a lovely, spacious property.

  • 5 of 5

The Owl was a lovely, spacious and well-equipped house, perfect for exploring the many nearby, idyllic hilltop towns. Gubbio, only twenty minutes away, was our favourite - the cable car up to an old monastry, lovely cafe and restaurant was great fun. We were also in Gubbio to experience their wonderful medieval festival. Loved Assisi, Spello and Perugia too. Beautiful drive to Assisi - route recommended to us by our hosts. Particularly pleasing in the house were the newly installed mosquito nets on windows and doors, which made for a cool, mosquito free holiday! We really enjoyed the beautiful views around the pool. Maria and Luigi were wonderful hosts, ensuring that we were aware of all the best in the area, even helping us with our travel arrangements for a day in Rome - the local train station is only a five minutes' drive. The train took us to Rome in two hours. We really liked the local town of Gualdo Tadino, which is set against a backdrop of hills, with a lovely square and restaurants. The local supermarket complex, a five minute drive away, also contained a great cafe, serving really good food. The kids ( aged 15 and 8) really liked the pizza bar in this complex. A two minute drive brings you to a sports bar serving really good pizza, drinks and ice- cream. A new motorway had just opened, making the journey to Perugia and the lovely Lake Trasimeno even quicker. A water park in Tavernelle made for a great day out. Thank you, Maria and Luigi, we had a memorable and highly enjoyable two weeks with you.

Fantastic apartment with lovely pool and views

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday here in August 2015, our first stay was in 2013. We love the location with the wonderful views across the valley and the mountains in the distance. The Owl apartment is spacious, comfortable, clean and well-maintained with many personal homely touches. There are amazing views from the bedroom windows.

Maria and Luigi are excellent hosts. They made us feel very welcome and were on hand to help with local information and tips. The house is a couple of miles from the town of Gualdo Tadino with shops and restaurants and there is easy access to Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto and many other hill-top towns to visit.

We spent a lot of time just relaxing by the pool taking in the views. It is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday in Umbria and we would highly recommend it.

Charming hosts, glorious views and a cool pool.

  • 5 of 5

The Owl is part of a gorgeous farmhouse set in a rural location with magnificent views of the Apennine Mountains. We spent many enjoyable days dining al fresco in the garden by the pool, with its stunning Umbrian views. The large pool was crystal clear and we were glad of the shade provided by sails around it.The accommodation was very comfortable, tastefully furnished throughout and a large kitchen/dining area and very well equipped for cooking at home. There is a lovely sitting room too for cooler days. We enjoyed excursions to Assisi, the jazz festival at Perugia and exploring the mountains and more local hilltop towns - a great location for walking, watching paragliding and some lovely restaurants. Maria and Luigi were outstanding hosts - they shared their love of Italy and gave us excellent suggestions of things to do, places to visit and restaurants to try. We so enjoyed our holiday at the Owl and would certainly recommend it to other travellers.

We are located between Assisi & Gubbio and 20 minutes from Perugia in a rather undiscovered part of Umbria. You can enjoy mountain & forest walks, wild flower meadows, cave visits, sightseeing (hilltop villages, historical towns & castles) and eating delicious Umbrian food. All at a fraction of the cost of neighbouring Tuscany! Everyone loves relaxing by our pool either on a sunbed or eating lunch in outdoor sitting room soaking up spectacular mountain views! We are on the main railway link to Rome
