Prato di Sotto is for the connoisseur. This collection of historic stone buildings sits above the tiny 13th century hamlet of Santa Giuliana, not far from the market town of Umbertide in northern Umbria. It can be rented as a whole or separately as each building is split into unique private holiday accommodation Lovingly restored by the owner, Penny Radford, and furnished with her personal collection of kilim rugs and antiques from around the world, the emphasis is on comfort and style. Beds are large and comfortable with crisp linen sheets and kitchens are equipped for even the most demanding cook. Read our amazing reviews we have received from TripAdvisor members... 'A little bit of heaven' 'Prato di Sotto is the jewel in the Umbrian crown'

Penny has created something very special here at Prato di Sotto and we had an amazing time. Its remote setting means the views across the mountains are stunning. We stayed in Casa Antica and all the rooms are beautifully decorated, and fully equipped with everything you need.
