Perfect for a family or two families, hoping to have own peace, yet having possibility to enjoy facilities of the resort next to the Villa. Our important criteries were to have a house which is enough big for 2 families with kids: 10points., pool, or 2 with option for our youngest: 10points and most important, a nice football pitch with a artificular grass where we enjoyed football games and penalty shots everyday: 10 points! On top of all there was a nice restaurant with reasonable prices. Very nice all in one. Service and the helpness of the owners (who seem to run the resort aswell was above our expectations. We enjoyed our week in Umbria, and it was nice to see how different it is from the other side, tuscany, where we spent the next week. If you appreciate cleanness and how things are fixed you will like this house.
