We held a family vacation of 10 family members at this villa. Here it is 2 years later and the entire family still talks about this wonderful vacation!
The villa is a wonderfully very-old yet modern home. Lots of large rooms and space. The owners were absolutely wonderful!
One of the really great things is that it is centrally located so that you are an easy day trip to almost anything in the Umbria and Tuscany regions. You will want to rent a car of course - but do not fear it, we all had no real problems with 4 seperate cars in the family. I personally drove all over Italy (about 1500 miles) during the 2+ weeks we there. We rented a car in Rome and drove up to the villa. It does get a little interesting in the cities, like Florence - just make sure you have someone reading signs and giving directions while the driver focuses on driving.
We actually dream of someday being able to return to this villa.
