Having holidays in Italy is a yearly occurrence for my family and I.
We've been to all the hotspots of Umbria, Tuscany, Florence, The Amalfi Coast, The Lakes... and they are all stunning.
But Sabina offered a chance to see the Italy behind the 'front' put on so elegantly by the more tourist heavy haunts.
It does not disappoint. The property itself is stunning. Large rooms, a generous rustic kitchen, an Italian Billiards Table, and 4 generous bedrooms make for a very comfortable stay.
There are no less than 4 separate sofa areas for a siesta and a book... it's a beautifully designed house with equally well considered spaces.
Our hosts could not have been more accommodating... or more discreet — they were there when we needed them and left us alone when we didn't.
The pool is wonderful. Large and has a diving board and child friendly steps — perfect for our 1.5yr old daughter to sit on in the shallows.
The simple life is not a poorly fed one. Local breads from down the road, fresh pasta every day from the amazing 'Pasta Fresca’ up the road... and everything else from the local supermarket.
We didn't want endless day trips and searching out another set of churches — we stayed at the villa... all day — and the children slept well every night after full, engaging days chasing butterflies and learning new dives in the pool. The TV was never watched.
A choice of dining spaces, from indoors under a chandelier to outdoors under the terrace... or under the leafy loggia with bespoke BBQ & Wood-Fired Pizza Oven... we used them all to great effect.
Beds were all very comfortable — bathrooms all clean and tidy, it all worked a treat.
If you have 2 kids, or even three, they'd all get their own room and you get yours. Equally, this is a brilliant party pad for a group of friends to catch up over several magnums of Prosecco.
I would not hesitate in recommending this place, and these hosts. We will be back as soon as possible... a slice of the good, Italian life — without a multilingual menu in sight... the real deal.
