We have just returned from a wonderful two week family holiday at Pian Di Cascina. Everyone came back relaxed and happy, which is not an easy job with 15 and 13 year old children to please.
Pian Di Cascina is simply the most perfectly relaxing and beautiful of places for a holiday. The surrounding scenery is the best antidote to a hectic and busy lifestyle - it invites you to just stop and chill out. Which is precisely what we did.
That said we did plenty of sightseeing too, Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia and Orvieto are all worth a visit as are the caves at Frassassi and on hot days take a trip up Monte Cucco to the woods for a cool picnic. All of these trips were made easier thanks to the comprehensive information supplied by Paul and Isabel in each apartment.
The accommodation was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything that you might need during your stay. The large swimming pool (again spotless) was well used by us all at different times of the day and never felt crowded or too noisy.
Take advantage of booking a lasagne for your arrival and have delicious bread and croissants delivered fresh for breakfast each morning, a real treat. However, our number one recommendation if you stay here is to eat at La Tavernatta. Isabel's cooking really is amazing and was the best food we had during our holiday. Its the reason we've booked to go back next year.
