Hemos pasado 5 días geniales en el apartamento Zaffiro. Paolo es absolutamente encantador y muy amable: nos indicó exactamente el camino, fue flexible por completo en cuanto a los horarios de llegada y salida, nos bajó a buscar al pueblo para que encontrásemos bien la casa, nos recibió con una botella de vino, un delicioso café de despedida... Y estuvo a nuestra disposición en todo momento.
La casa era estupenda, decorada con mucho gusto y equipada hasta el mínimo detalle, el aire acondicionado funcionaba perfectamente, estaba muy limpia, las camas que usamos eran comodísimas (una era un sofá cama enorme).
Hay que subir un buen tramo de escaleras, el apartamento está en la zona más alta, pero merece la pena, hasta el camino de escaleras está precioso, lleno de flores.
Pero lo mejor era el maravilloso paisaje que se disfrutaba desde el porche, la terraza común o la piscina. ¡Increíble!
Paolo is the most warm and polite man you will ever meet. It was a great pleasure to get to enjoy his hospitality. Thank you again!
The common area with barbeque and pool is amazing! And the view...SIMPLY AMAZING. The location has a lot of steps so this is not suitable for handicapped people and maybe not the best for families with small children, although we enjoyed it very much, even with three 1-year olds.
The apartment is best suited for two families or a bigger group of friends. The inside area is maybe a little smaller than in the pictures, but overall the place is very cosy. Kitchen is well-equipped.
Location is very good with a lot of small villages and sights (ex. Marmore Falls) nearby.
Small surprise was the amount of electricity and water (which are billed on top of the rent based on the usage), but on the other hand we were heavy users with kids.
Overall this place and host are worth all the praise they are getting. We really hope to get to visit again some day!
Thank you for your appreciation, I am glad that you were good and you enjoyed all the things that you had available. When you have requested the house and saw the number of people and children, I had serious doubts, but then I told myself that I had done all this because guests might obtain it, and I must say that accommodate you with your pups was beautiful,
thanks for your advice, I have already started work,
still a great hope of happiness for all of you,
Paul and Catia
It is difficult to describe the beauty of the valley on top of which Paolo's apartments sit. We were overwhelmed with the view from our patio and the main terrace. This is a very special place that I would love to share with more members of my family. Paolo made us all feel very welcome and was an exceptional host. The apartment itself was exceptionally clean and everything you may need is provided. Thank you, Paolo, for a wonderful few days!
Dear Michelle, was a great pleasure to host you, I'm glad you like me you're in love with this place, this view has impressed you, I am now almost ten years and I'm here every day, still, rest and hit amazed by the sight,
my house is always open for you,
best wishes of happiness,
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,
