In just a handful of occasions in life, one happens across a very unique location and very special people. Both of these qualities were fulfilled when my wife and I had the pleasure of staying for two wonderful weeks with Alessia and Massimiliano at Agriturismo Acquaviva, Near Todi in Umbria, Italy. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome and looked after. Alessia and Massimiliano often went the extra mile, helping us whenever they could in arranging visits, such as to vineyards (my Italian needs improvement!), suggesting good walks and chatting with us about the history and culture of the locality.
The accommodation is excellent, very comfortable, well facilitated and so very peaceful. There are extensive grounds to explore, which are beautifully landscaped. Daytime there is a plethora of wildlife to enjoy and at night the skies are full of stars, we even saw fireflies flashing their lights around the trees. The views are stunning and offer an endless supply of subjects for artists.
If you choose to have breakfast included, Alessia's cooking is wonderful and will keep you fuelled for most of the day!
If you like to really get away from it all, find real peace, meet wonderful people, then Agriturismo Acquaviva is for you!
