We stayed 5 nights at Slow Life and left recharged and relaxed.
Nestled in the hills of Umbria away from any hustle and bustle it was a great opportunity to tune out of the digital world and tune back in to nature and the natural rhythms of life.
We stayed in the Green room with an extra bed (optional) and a private terrace area as the room was at the end. Plenty of space in the bathroom with a large walk in shower. Bed was very comfortable and I slept so well. Understated chic would sum up the room.
As the weather was great we had breakfast outside every day with yummy homemade muffins. In fact the food is great and we chose to eat dinner 3 out of the 5 evenings we were there. Wine and food were delicious. Bruno sure knows how to cook. In fact the owners were very friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive (in case that is something you might worry about).
There is a beautiful pool which the children loved. Lovely place to relax on the sun loungers and soak up the colours and scents of the nature around you, as well as the sunshine. Several large sun umbrellas offer all the shade you may require when it's really hot and sunny (which it was during our stay).
We travelled with two young children (3 and 6) and it was great to let them run free and explore, although we made it clear they could not go near the pool without an adult. The fact that there was no TV at Slow Life did not bother them in the slightest; they were too busy trying to track down the 3 kittens in between the lavender bushes.
We made daily trips out and about but the children were always itching to get back to the pool at Slow Life. If you want to be flexible you do need a car as it is a few kilometres off the tarmac road near Magione. Don't forget to take, and follow, Bruno's directions - typing the address into the sat nav lead us totally astray!
