We stayed at Villa Pian Di Cascina the first week of June and had the most amazing, relaxing week. The location is draw dropping - stunning views, so quiet and relaxing. My husband was cycling every day and found the area amazing for road cycling. You can also do some great hill walking right from the villa. Beautiful medieval towns of Assisi, Gubbio and Perugia are within easy driving distance and these towns are wonderful to potter around (even our 3 year old enjoyed it, being interspersed with plenty of gelato stops!)
The self catering villas are lovely, spacious and well appointed with very comfy beds, gas bbqs outside, kitchen with plenty of cooking and eating gear - such a pleasant surprise to find a self catering cottage with a knife sharpener!). The big selection of kids toys left in our villa for our 3 year old was brilliant! This is a great place for children - fabulous big play area with loads of outdoor toys, and Isabel and Paul have included loads of info in the info booklet in the villa on family days out.
The village down the road from the villa has all you need to basic groceries, bakery, butcher etc and the beautiful medieval town of Gubbio is a 20min drive. Paul and Isabel have thought of lots of great touches, such as delivery of fresh bakery goods in the morning, home made jam and local wine and olive oil to purchase on site. Be sure to eat at La Tavernetta, Isabel's onsite restaurant for guests only - she is an amazing cook and serves an exceptional 4 course locally sourced menu two nights a week. Can't say enough positive things about Villa Pian Di Cascina - we came home thoroughly calm and relaxed and we definitely plan to return!
