The apartment has a modern, contemporary feel but the owners have taken care to retain many original features during the restoration and renovation process, such as incredibly beautiful wooden ceilings and stone walls.
This gives the apartment real character and charm.

I am a mother with 2 children, age 9 & 12 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 9 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy through my website - I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.
This is a wonderful, relaxing place to use as a base to explore every corner of the beautiful Umbrian countryside. It provides the ideal starting point for excursions to the art cities of Umbria - Assissi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Orvieto etc. Nestled near the town of Foligno, some of the towns and villages in Tuscany and Le Marche are also accessible from the property giving you the opportunity to see a varied cross section of rural Italy.
These apartments have been beautifully furnished and finished to a very high standard by the owners. They provide a beautiful, relaxing place to stay and perfect base to explore Umbria and even parts of Tuscany. During the restoration process, the owner has taken care to retain many original features of the stone cottage thus giving the properties a real sense of character and uniqueness, whilst at the same time being modern and contemporary. The attention to detail ensures that the apartments have the feel of a 'boutique hotel'. The owners are incredibly helpful and on your arrival, are keen to provide advice to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Notes on prices:
Please note that if 5 people stay in the 2 bedroom apartments, there is an additional charge of 120 euros per week. This is paid locally on arrival.
There were problems gaining access to the property initially, not because of any fault of the owner, but access to WiFi and SMS not very good throughout Italy on our stay. Oscar was very keen and able to help with WiFi problems, but nonetheless these continued while we were there for 4 days. In every other respect, the accommodation was excellent - well equipped bathroom, kitchen, and very comfy bed. it would have been good to know the pool was not in use at the time of our stay as we had been looking forward to it. The weather late October averaged 24 degrees, so a pool would have been very welcome. We did visit some thermal baths nearby which was quite an experience.The apartments are set apart from other houses, but with close access to main routes and lovely towns to visit such as Spoleto & Assisi.
We have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful apartment ....and the Foligno area...to everyone. The apartment is absolutely luxurious and the Foligno area is fantastic for exploring the many hilltop towns in the area. We would happily come back and spend a month if we could.
The only difficulty we had was finding the apartment in the first place as it appears that there are two houses with the same address. Our GPS took us to a house about 2 kms down the road. We were lucky that some wonderful local residents walked us to the apartment.
