This is a lovely place in a beautiful location with very friendly neighbours. It's a good base for visiting Perugia (though the city sprawls massively and has heavy traffic), Assisi and Lake Trasimeno (a very relaxing day out). The only problem was that wi-fi didn't work for the four nights we were there.
Thanks Tim and I will check out what's happening with the internet.
Carolyn's house is juste gorgeous. Everything was: the place, the house, the people/neighbours and the regional cooking I've always loved so much since I was a child. It is always a pleasure to come back and Carolyn's house was the perfect place to be and enjoy the stay.
The big, traditional country-side house was perfectly tieded up and clean, there is the exact place for 6 people, and all a 6 people family needs. Moreover Carolyn is a great host who is able to manage it all from Australia!! Call it "effectiveness" ;-)
The place is quiet, the landscapes are simply wonderful (peace and beauty everywhere) and Carolyn left us loads of useful advices in a book she prepared during the years.
Carolyn simply rescued my family and myself from what it was going to be a disastrous holiday -blame it the absolutely painful and totally unprofessional actitude of another user of this website (situated in Palazzetta)- so I thank her and I would enjoy to come back to her house in the future.
Trust Carolyn and enjoy "the" perfect stay in Umbria :)
Thanks Martine - you have made my day! !
What a wonderful, dream home! We had a fabulous few days here with our family. It really was a perfect stay. The garden was amazing - and became our refuge at sunset. What a great way to spend the evening, with the BBQ lit and a few glasses of local wine. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated - with an authentic Tuscan feel. It's well equipped - we especially found the washing machine useful (having three boys with us on the trip). After a few days in Florence, this was a welcome break away from busy city life. It was a peaceful and relaxing escape (but it was also good to have WIFI access). The recommendation on where to pick up the local bread was much appreciated. We had a lovely time and often made day trips to Lake Trasimeno and the wonderful island of Polvese - about 20 minutes drive away - to swim. Thank you so much for making our holiday in Tuscany so memorable.
An absolutely delightful family. We really enjoyed meeting them. I would totally recommend them as guests!
