I will either be in the apartment upstairs or in my caravan at the riding school, and I'm more than happy to help visitors with any information and advice!
A shopping list can be provided for guests with children or arriving when shops are closed.
In case of guests staying more than 2 weeks we offer free basic house cleaning after the 2nd week!
We are in a quiet area on a picturesque hill, however still only 4km from the centre of Castiglione Del Lago. Walking around is very safe and peaceful.
There is no bus into town but you can call a cab. I always recommend hiring a car or even a couple of bikes.

La maison et ses environs sont magnifiques. La propriétaire possède de splendides chevaux et si le temps vous le permet, aller vous promener dans les champs, à travers le vignes et les oliveraies, à cheval ou à pied. Les couchers de soleils sont également splendides et l'utilisation de la petite cour paisible fut très appréciée.
Le logement est petit mais fonctionnel, il y a peu de fenêtre donc lorsqu'il fait chaud le petit ventilateur ne suffie pas toujours à la tâche.
Nous avons loué des vélos dans la petite ville de Catiglione (au magasin Vincente bici à 10 euros par jour) pour nous déplacer plus facilement de la maison à la ville.
En passant, un détour par le Alisè cafe (Piazza della Stazione, 5 à Castiglione) vous permettra de déguster un des meilleurs cappucino en ville et ... surtout ... commander un croissant à la crème de pistache, le meilleur « cornetto » que nous ayons goûté lors de notre séjour en Italie.
Pat est une hôte fantastique, très hospitalière, sympathique, généreuse et toujours prête à rendre service.
Définitivement un endroit de rêve à découvrir pour le repos à la campagne et goûter à l'hospitalité italienne made in « england ».

The studio was exactly as described and Pat was a welcoming host. One note though: we could not connect to the wifi despite several attempts (apparently it's an issue with the area).
Ideal place to recharge batteries! The place looks identical as on the pictures. Clean and tidy. Supplied with everything you need.
We were very welcomed when arrived to Pat place.
There is a large garden at the front of the house with table and chairs and also jacuzzi with heated water makes it superb place to chill out!
About 2 km from her place there is a castle just on the lake, must be seen, with a sandy beach and water so warm that you do not realise you are in the water:)
Pat has 11 horses, beautiful horses! We went for a ride one evening and it was one on best thing happened to us while on a trip to Italy.
We have stayed at Pat place for 4 nights and at the beginning we have though what we will do but now we regret we did not stayed longer.
Love you Pat and your horses!
Pat made us feel very welcome in her delightful little apartment in a lovely rural area just a short distance to shops,sights and restaurants.
The flat was very clean and comfortable with all modern conveniences. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and wished we could have stayed longer.
The apartment is nice, comfortable, clean and spacy. Kitchen has all the neccessary equipment.
Pat is a very nice and friendly host, and we will definitely recommend her house and the Lilhoff horse riding (Centro di equitazione "Lilhoff") for anybody who want to spend some unforgettable time.
