About massimo pavolini

I live in Rome with my family (my wife and 3 kids) and 8 dogs. I studied abroad UCLA and Columbia University. Sport, travelling and movies are my major interests.

My father in law bought this house several years ago from the famous coreographer Lindsey Kemp. We use the house for family reunion and holidays with our friends.

massimo pavolini purchased this villa in 1999

Why massimo pavolini chose Umbria

The villa is perfect for family reunion and big groups. The house on the tree, the pool, the play room and the piano.......

What makes this villa unique

We will welcome you at your arrival ywith lasagnas, 2 bottle of wine and seasonal fruit

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our host Massimo could not have been more accommodating. We arrived quite early but it was no problem to meet us and let us in. The house is perfectly set up for families, with a large securely fenced garden, tree house, big play room (a godsend given the amount of rain in our first week!!) and even a kids slide into the pool which gave our girls endless hours of fun. The location is great, just off the motorway so very easily accessible and although you can see the road, you can only really hear it if the wind is blowing in the wrong way and it's not loud at all, especially over the shrieks of laughter from the kids in the pool!! Inside the rooms are spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for two families to spare the space without being cramped or living on top of each other. The housekeeper was great, coming for a couple of hours a day without being overbearing and just letting us enjoy our stay. We have had experiences of housekeepers getting upset if we moved the slightest thing but Rosalba was quite relaxed and laid back. Overall a great stay both in terms of accommodation and the hosts - definitely 5 stars.
