There is also Anghari only 10 minute drive away, it is a stunning medieval town which stands right at the top of a hill and looks down on a fantastically straight Roman road (this has to be seen). This is where Leonardo di Vinci in the fifteenth century painted the famous “battle of Anghari” is an unmissable visit be it daytime or night just stunning. This area is steeped in history. The antique market is ideal for that little keep-sake.

There are numerous walks in and around the countryside the most famous being St Francis of Assisi walk clearly sign posted. The river Sovara meanders its way around the lower fields is also a pleasant stroll.

“Looking forward to our return next year”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2013

Our second stay at Il Girasole, and we immediately requested a booking for next year too. Great location in the heart of so much to see and do and some of the best restaurants anywhere. The place itself is perfect for us. Lovely private garden and terrace looking out towards the medieval hilltop town of Citerna (great destination for a morning walk and a cappuccino). The private pool is a delight and always fresh and clean. The apartment itself is the most comfortable we have found, spotlessly clean, and a pleasure to stay in. Deserves every last glimmer of its five stars.

“Stunning location, beautifully appointed property”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2013

On the edge of the village of Fighille looking across the Tiber Valley and up to the hill-top town of Citerna surrounded by fields of sunflowers and working farms the property is very skilfully adapted and offers complete privacy. The pool is cleaned every morning early and discreetly by the owners who have paid exceptional attention to detail both inside and outside. Nothing is ever too much trouble because they aim to provide an excellent level of service.they are a delightful and very interesting couple. Needless to say we have booked for next year.

“Perfect getaway, Wonderful views and luxuary accomodation.”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2013

We booked our stay at 'Il Girasole' as it ticked all of the right boxes. The owners were very obliging and answered all of our questions prior to booking; nothing was too much trouble. We arrived at our perfect getaway, after a short easy drive from Perugia airport. It is the last house nestled on a hill with a beautiful panoramic view. The accommodation is fabulous, all the amenities are available, it is like home-from-home. We have stayed in Italy many times before, but this place tops the lot. With your own private pool, garden and veranda, you could easily pretend its your own Tuscan retreat. I would highly recommend this rental.......Its the best kept secret around!!!

“Fantastic villa, great views, pool and hosts!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

Il Girasole is a spacious, light and airy, 1 bedroom villa in the village of Fighille. I had the pleasure of staying at Il Girasole with my wife on our honeymoon. The service we experienced from the owners was exceptionally good. We were in regular contact before we booked via e-mail and the telephone, and they provided us with good instructions on how to reach the villa. The villa has a lovely garden which is well maintained, and is liberally scattered with places to sit and lounge. I was a particular fan of the hammock! The veranda, overlooking the garden and the pool, is the perfect place for spending the evenings together, for evening meals and relaxing with a glass of Italian wine. The pool was perfect. It was nice and cool, and gave welcome relief from the heat around midday. It's big enough to do a bit of token swimming! But best for floating around on inflatables, and generally bobbing around. The owners maintained the pool early every morning, ensuring it was spotless. If you are lucky you may get to meet Nacho the dog! Who comes to visit occasionally. The small town of Fighille, is a short walk away, it hosts a small supermarket, two bars/restaurants/coffee houses, and a few other small shops. The supermarket contained everything we needed for the self catered holiday. The fresh fruit and vegetables they offered were fantastic, along with a great deli counter, and lots of the essential Italian wine and beer! There are several very good restaurants within a 15 minutes drive from the Villa. Il Girasole is a perfect villa for a honeymoon, or for a couple seeking to relax in similar luxury and relative seclusion. I would heartily recommend this villa. In fact we plan on booking this villa again!

“Beautiful retreat to wind down and relax”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2013

Beautiful retreat to wind down and relax. Lovely well equipped apartment with views to die for. This is our second stay and having a private pool in the summer months is the icing on the cake. Cannot find fault with anything. We will return again.
