I am writing because we had such a glorious time in this oasis of calm in Umbria. It seemed a long way from Valfabbrica across spectacular rolling hills covered with golden wildflowers. When we found the place it was perfectly situated. There is a great stone building with a truly inviting infinity pool, its own church (in crumbling state from an old earthquake), and the view from all parts is spectacular. Surprisingly it is an easy driving distance from Assisi, Gubbio and other hilltop towns. We stayed 4 days and wished it was for months.
Our apartment was self contained, self catering with an elegant minimality. Its architectural conversion from an old monastery has been beautifully realised. We were well cared for by the host, and will return to the Podere Morico as soon as we can.
