We stumbled upon this place after a last minute decision to visit Civite di Bagnoregio, this was in the perfect location for visiting Civite. The private apartment was connected to their family home and we were welcomed in with open arms. There was a gated parking spot for our vehicle, and the apartment was so cute and clean, it well surpassed the photos on the site. Barbara was unable to meet us, but her mom showed us around while her sister translated in perfect english. We only stayed one night, but it was perfect for that or a much longer stay. Our favorite part was the conversation we had with Barbara's parents in broken Italian and English discussing the family of turtles that they raise. Between hand signals and Italian numbers we discovered that there were 12 turtles living there, from 2 parent turtles who were older than their owners! And they showed us the turtle eggs that were getting ready to hatch. Such a special treat, that was totally unexpected, and definitely the "come join our family" feeling we were hoping to find in Italy!
Barbara is a great host! Communication with her was perfect and she provided great and useful information from the first contact. Even though there was a problem with her listing, she found a solution immediately and provided me and my friends a nice and confortable accomodation in Lubriano. The area is just fantastic, close to Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoreggio and the Umbria countryside. I highly raccomend this place! Thanks Barbara!
