Paolo is a very welcoming host, it feels like you're visiting him instead of just renting a house. The apartment is small but has everything you need. We stayed there with 5-6 people which was about the maximum to be comfortable, but there are more beds available if necessary. The terrasses were spectacular, with great views, sun or shadow at wish, a sauna with splendid views especially in the dark! A little gem in Umbria....
Paolo was an exceptionally welcoming and generous host, providing information and suggestions about the area. The location of the apartment is spectacular, overlooking the valley from the highest point in the town, in the shadow of castle ruins. The apartment was thoughtfully arranged and well-equipped. The region offers a variety of day excursions and diverse landscapes.
Paolo is an amazing host. He has done such a great job at keeping the apartments and the surrounding gardens in immaculate conditions. The place looks exactly like in the photographs, if not better. The views are incredible. Paolo is very friendly, yet not intrusive, and is ready to give helpful suggestions and information. He really made us feel comfortable there.
We stayed at the Zaffiro apartment for just one short week but we were able to relax and enjoy the small town. I think we were the only tourists there. It was also our first time in Italy and we were able to get a good feel for real Italian living. There is a very nice park with water falls nearby as well as other larger towns for sightseeing and additional choices for dining. There are several good restaurants nearby that infuse their recipes with truffles. Very delicious, to say the least. All in all, I can certainly recommend this listing to anyone. Paolo will make you feel right at home.
host Jaime has been a pleasurable experience, the whole family is made up of wonderful people, children, polite and friendly, Jaime and his wife who have enjoyed everything that has been made available, with the utmost respect, but the grandparents' generation, Leonel and Elena, is truly stunning, a sympathetic one.
Accommodate these people is my wish to all,
First of all, a big thanks to Paolo for giving us the opportunity to stay at his place. We rented all three houses (smeraldo, Ametista and zaffiro) for 17 person for a week long wedding celebration. We couldnt have chosen a better place. Paolo is such a warm and caring host and made sure we all could enjoy our stay. When we arrived he was there waiting for us and guiding us to his place. Theres plenty of parking space but make sure you arrive with a proper car as the climb to the apartment is somewhat big.
The view from the terrace is heartstoppingly beautiful. The pictures here dont lie. The facilities were top notch, modern, you have everything you need for cooking. You can also use terrace kitchen which is really nice for making breakfast or dinner in Paolos beautiful garden. The beds were comfy and bathrooms clean as was everything else too. If I understood correctly, Paolo build all the apartments pretty much by himself and must say he has build beautiful and unique apartments. The decoration pleased the eye as well! All the three apartments are told to accommodate 21 persons total and there were 17 of us, all adults. For longer stay this arrangement wouldnt give enough space for couples traveling together but we are sure its good for families.
The apartments, Ferentillo and Paolo together gave us something so memorable which we all will gladly remember for the rest of our lives :)

This place makes you really feel like you're in the heart of Italy! The views were gorgeous and the town was quiet. The outdoor spaces were beautiful with flowers, trees, and succulents. We enjoyed using the outdoor kitchen and eating outside. The pool felt great and was relaxing. Paolo was the best host I've ever stayed with. He is very generous and honest and wants your stay to be wonderful!

Apartment Zaffiro is the perfect spot for a relaxing, stress-free vacation in Umbria. The setting is gorgeous, the apartment is beautifully furnished, the garden has a million flowers, and the outdoor kitchen is perfect for preparing dinners. Paolo is a wonderful, helpful host who quickly responded to all of my messages. I wish I could have stayed longer! We had a perfect trip.
Great little house with beautiful surrounding gardens and gorgeous views of the area. Paulo was very friendly and provided recommendations for local restaurants and establishments. A small town but good central location to other towns (Orvieto 1 hr drive), (Assisi 1hr drive), Rome (maybe 1- 1 1/2 hrs drive). A nice quiet place to relax. I hope to be here again some day!
