“Pizza perfect”

We joined our children and their families for one week of their fortnight's holiday in June as additional child support. The facilities enabled us to have a 'segregated' bedroom with en-suite, avoiding early morning disturbance ! The house is beautifully arranged for warm sunny days, when not exploring the large (5ha) site and the surrounding hill towns of Todi, Montefalco etc. The pool allows for cooling down and, whilst it isn't protected it is sufficiently apart from the house to maintain security for small children. It was used a lot due to the consistent temperatures above 33C. Despite these high temperatures the inside of the house remained cool.
As well as the main indoor kitchen diner there is external, covered dining and a further raised eating area with its own BBQ and pizza oven. The house is very well provided with crockery, cutlery and related equipment; lots of toys for the children and some "big boys' toys" too. Three cots and high chairs were provided and there are two lounge areas as well as the family dining/kitchen space.
The approach to the house is a long gravel drive which would have been easier to negotiate in a 4x4 but the standard hire cars coped.
Local wildlife was evident with small lizards, salamander, various birds and butterflies and, if you stay awake long enough for it to get dark, the most wonderful firefly display.
The owners, Fabricio and Patrizia are very helpful and friendly and trust visitors with a large store (including cooler) of local wines for drinking on an honesty box basis. They also made arrangements for us to visit two local wine producers for tastings which were excellent if very different in presentation.
The house is in an elevated location so there are magnificent views over the surrounding countryside towards Todi, and of the Sky at Night.
A mobile wifi service is provided although reception is restricted to parts of the house and grounds due to the surrounding hills.
We hadn't been to Umbria before but, on the strength of this holiday experience, we will return.
