Marsha created a lovely home in the hills of Assisi.
Absolute highlight is the terrace with a magnificent view over the valley. Plus: a pleasant, spacious bedroom with a comfortable bed, a luxurious bathroom and last but not least: Marsha is a very kind and witty host: we had a very good time.
Masha ist eine sehr herzliche, freundliche, entgegenkommende und angenehme Gastgeberin und das ruhige Zimmer mit geräumigen tollen Bad und der phänomenalen Dachterrasse sind 5 Sterne wert! Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt. Und (kleiner Tipp) unbedingt die Pizzeria Picnic gleich unten an der Hauptstraße besuchen! Gerne wieder! Vielen Dank, Jörn und Heidi
What a beautiful, comfortable, and friendly place to stay! After 2 weeks in cramped hotel rooms, this adorable home with the large bedroom, spacious bathroom, and breathtaking view off the balcony was our much needed retreat! Marsha was a gracious hostess and thoughtful of our every need. She provided the perfect amount of hospitality and privacy during our time in her home and shared with us all the local "secrets." She also secured for us a reservation for a wine tasting and food pairing at the local SAIO Winery for the day after we arrived, all we had to do was show up! If you are looking for a quaint, quiet stay, with all the comforts of home, breathtaking views and friendly hospitality, this is your place!
Nous avons été accueillis par Marsha comme des amis. Elle nous a donnés des conseils précieux pour organiser notre périple. Sa maison est située de façon idéale pour visiter Assise , en dormant au calme au milieu des oliviers. N'oubliez pas d'aller sur la terrasse pour admirer la vue magnifique !
We were greeted warmly, and any questions we had about points of interest were answered with reliable comments and/or an information pamphlet. The neighborhood is classic rural Assisi where one wakes to roosters crowing and the music of field birds. There was a panoramic view of the Umbria valley from our room and private terrace, where where the sunsets were spectacular.
