Fantastic child-friendly accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks in Sept 2014. This was our first family holiday with our son (who was 8months old at the time) and we couldn't have picked a better location. The apartment is lovely - plenty of space, a massive sun terrace, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and an amazing freestanding bath (perfect with a glass of Prosecco in the evenings!). The rest of the grounds are also beautiful - the pool, gardens and play area. And - as advertised - the place is perfect for young families. Having everything there and ready to use made life so much easier - there was a cot, highchair, toys, DVDs and bath toys in the apartment on arrival and we also borrowed a pushchair and steriliser during our stay.

Location wise it's a short trip to several beautiful old towns like Todi, Perugia, Citta di Castello etc and set in a peaceful valley. Easy to get to and from the sights of the region but also lovely and quiet!

What really makes the place though is Paul and Anita's excellent hosting - they are extremely helpful and accommodating but also give you all the privacy and space you need to enjoy the holiday. We had a fantastic time and hope to return again!
