“Peaceful oasis in Umbrian countryside”
Reviewed 11 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We spent a week in Apt A with our 11 month old son. Norma & Laurie were excellent hosts even arranging for us to have a dinner at an Italian family's home during our stay. Laurie met us in town on the day we arrived and met us to take us to the property, which was much appreciated after our experience in Tuscany where our GPS took us on a strange 2 hour adventure to find our Agriturismo in the country. They had a playpen for our son and even brought us an extra booster seat for him saying the high chair was not sufficient for us. They had provided a large document of "Things to do in Spoleto" which included restaurant recommendations and some daytrip suggestions which we found very useful and helped us find some enjoyable villages and restaurants a bit more off the beaten track. Most of their guests seem to be english speaking tourists from the UK, the US or Canada so there seemed to be a bit of an instant social community, several of the guests were staying for longer term stays.

The apartment was far larger than we needed, but we had selected Apt A because it is the only unit with a private terrace overlooking the valley, which is spectacular. The Trip advisor description states that Apt A has a full tub, which is incorrect (only has 2 showers). The apartment is suitably outfitted with the basic ameneties and even has central heating. The decor is fairly utilitarian and could use some nicer furniture and maybe some local artwork but the beds were comfortable and the kitchen outfitted with everything we needed.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful quiet vacation, or families with kids who enjoy swimming. The drive to reach the villa is about 15 minutes up windy mountain roads from Spoleto, which I think could become a bit tedious on a longer stay but assuming a quiet country vacation is what you're looking for, this place is perfect.
