Near Cortona and Trasimeno Lake, Assisi and Montepulciano, Marilena offers one great apartment with 2 bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, living room, swimming-pool and beautiful garden.
Marilena is the oldest apartment of the farm and the only one to be spread over two floors. On the first floor you will find a kitchen with a lovely hob in old terracotta tiles and equipped with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, electric oven, microwave oven and drip coffee maker. In the living room there are a table, a sofa, a coffee table and the TV. The fireplace is very big and was once used by farmers as a veritable “room”, since they leant their dishes on the firedogs to enjoy their meals. On the second floor there are the two bedrooms, the bathroom and the balcony. The double bedroom has a comfortable wrought-iron bed and is well-lit by a window door from which you can access a beautiful panoramic balcony with a view onto the garden, the vineyard and the olive tree grove. The balcony is furnished with a table and chairs and is perfect for eating in the open air. The triple bedroom has three single beds, two of which can be joined together to make a double bed.

Wat een heerlijk huisje was dit! Prachtige omgeving, heerlijk (schoon) zwembad met voldoende ligbedden in de zon en/of schaduw, genoeg ruimte om te spelen voor kinderen... Goed uitvalspunt voor tripjes naar Siena, Orvieto, Rome of Castillione del Lago. Pizzeria / restaurant Da Gianna is een aanrader in nabije omgeving. Ook het huisje zelf voldeed aan de verwachtingen: Prettige ruimtes, fijn balkon/dakterras, schoon, lekkere bedden en ramen met luiken om de warme zon buiten te houden. Het enige wat wij vonden ontbreken waren horren om de vele muggen ook buiten te houden. Hierdoor alsnog zeer warm omdat we de ramen 's avonds dicht moesten houden als het juist wat begon af te koelen. Ook enkele schoonmaakmiddelen en doekjes zouden fijn zijn: bij een verblijf van 10 dagen wel prettig om iets te kunnen doen aan wc en keuken en om alles voor die enkele keren aan te schaffen toch snel duur (ook geen afwasmiddel, doekjes of afwasblokjes aanwezig). Maar dat zijn minimale punten op een heerlijk verblijf bij het huisje! Laatste tip: Leuk /lekker bakkertje in Mercatale (3 km) waar verser brood te krijgen is dan in de kleine supermarktjes in de omgeving.
As noted, our host had a fabulous dinner prepared for us and were readily available if needed.
The town was small settled in a valley-very country and relaxing and not far from the next town and main highway.
