About the Owner

Decio and I met and married in England. In 1982 we came back to Italy. Decio is Umbrian and wanted to return. We ran a restaurant until he retired. After a life time in pub and restaurants it was very very quiet so we decided to make our apartment into holiday accommodation. Now I can welcome people and at last I feel at home!

Brilliant holiday apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our few days at this apartment : it was peaceful and secluded, and in a delightful rural location. Rachel was most welcoming and always available to help with our queries, for example, the best route to a particular place. And having tea, milk and wine in the kitchen ready for our arrival was a real bonus! We were touring around the Umbrian towns to see the amazing art and Romanesque architecture, and found the apartment's location quite close to the motorway to be a big advantage. There was plenty of space in the apartment and it was easy to cook when we wished to do so; and there was also space for our hired car. Views from outside the apartment and from Rachel's garden (which she encouraged us to use) are stunning, and the nearby hillside full of butterflies - another real treat! The apartment is reasonably priced (we didn't want a pool or other add-ons) and we will be returning next year. Thank you Rachel and Decio!

Owner's Response: Thankyou Jonathan and Christine for your lovely review. We always try to make our guests feel welcome and at home. I think that your holiday is something special,time for you to spend together together away from the rush of working life. I thank you for introducing me to butterflies! I didn't know there were so many and that we actually have some special ones! We also have unusal wild birds and the woodland behind us is full of deer,wild boar and porcupines! They cannot get into our land so you are quite safe for they are not interested in us! Looking forward to seeing you next year.

Peaceful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Passignano at this apartment. Rachel and her family were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was easy to find and when we arrived there was milk, teabags and wine provided which was welcome after the long drive from the French Alps. It's in a lovely peaceful spot above the lake and the views from there and from Rachels garden are spectacular. Still close to amenities and convenient for all that Lake Trasimeno and the surrounding countryside has to offer. It's only a couple of minutes down into Passignano where there are shops and restaurants and a station with trains to Florence.

The apartment itself is comfortable and has plenty of space for two people and the kitchen has a full oven and a kettle - important for tea lovers from the UK! There's space to eat outside and to watch the lovely sunsets. Also space for 1 car.

It is also very reasonably priced and we would not hesitate to stay again in the future. Thank you Rachel for helping to make our stay such an enjoyable one.

A great escape

  • 4 of 5

Wonderfully situated. The views from the property are amazing,especially when you go up into the owner's garden(which you are welcome to share). It is a view to die for. It was just so tranquil with so many horizons to enjoy. Also a brilliant centre to also enjoy Tuscany. The town nearby is lively with restaurants and cafes with a beautiful lakeside promenade where you get catch a ferry to explore the lake. The ferry price is reasonable. Definitely a good place if you do not want to do too much driving trains go to nearby cities. A good evening walk is just up the path. For us an excellent holiday.

Peace, views & friends

  • 5 of 5

La Quiete is at the end of a narrow, winding uphill road, but Rachel's directions for finding it were spot on. When we arrived Rachel was at the car door to welcome us as soon as we got out. Rachel and Decio are marvellous hosts - we arrived quite late on a Sunday and Rachel got in a few basic provisions for us. We loved the flat that had loads of space for the two of us. Sitting on the little terrace for breakfast with views over the lake and often a chat with Rachel was a real pleasure. Passignano has a great central location for sightseeing either by car or train. The town itself is quite ordinary but has all the facilities one needs without being heaving with tourists which was great. By the time we left Rachel was more of a friend than a host and we will be back again to enjoy her hospitality.

La Quinta is in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

La Quinta is in perfect location overlooking the Lake. Our hosts Rachel and Decio made us very welcome during our stay in October 2013. We flew to Perugia and Rachel’s precise instructions meant that 40 minutes after starting the car we were at La Quinta. The accommodation was ideal for our needs and the patio area on a sunny morning or after a long day was perfect for a leisurely breakfast or early evening drink before dinner.

The location is ideally placed to explore the locality either by foot or car. During our stay we drove to Perugia and we also took a train from the station in the village to Florence which is only 90 minutes away.

The village has some recommended bars and restaurants and our favourite was the Pizzeria at the port which is reasonably priced and great value.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to return again in the future.
