Have just returned from a fantastic time away at Santa Chiara. From the moment you drive up you soon realise this is a very special place. In a remote location down a single track road, with very little traffic to speak of, but only 10 minutes from the motorway to perugia it is ideally located. The location is really stunning, and the photos dont do it justice. The area is very hilly with lots of forest-type landscapes around. The villa itself is a beautiful restored farmhouse, and has a wonderful swimming pool that was a perfect antidote to the 35 degree C heat we had most days. Our apartment, rancale was the largest one, and furnished to a very high standard, the only downside was that the patio area is separated from the main apartment by 12 stone steps which is a bit of a hassle when transporting food, children and plates to and fro at mealtimes but not insurmountable by any means. Paul, Anita, Alessandro and Isabella are exceptional hosts and did everything to make our stay extremely comfortable. We were all very sad to leave.
