We thoroughly enjoyed your time at La Vigna. Lorraine and Sal are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. We loved our time in the pool and the tranquil environment surrounding the apartment. The nearby facilities are super - we made use of the tennis courts, lake, water ski-ing, restaurants and markets. A relaxing holiday with so much to see in the area. The hillside villages and towns are excellent for morning coffee or an evening drink. The apartment is well situated for supermarkets and had everything we needed to make for an excellent holiday. We would love to return soon.

The property is nicely secluded amongst the Umbrian countryside it is in an excellent location both to explore the local area and to relax by the pool and gardens. The villa is well equipped with everything you need it has good facilities and has various supermarkets close by to get your everyday supplies from. We particluarly liked the nearby town of Castiglione del Lago where there are a good selection of restaurants catering for everyone. We travelled by train to Rome from the local station, this I can fully recommend as Italian trains are clean and air conditioned. There are many hilltop villages and towns to explore. Salvo and Lorraine were great hosts providing us with any information we needed. I will definitely be returning one day. We had a great holiday.
