“Beautiful cottage and location”
Reviewed 5 September 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Just returned from a wonderful, relaxing two weeks staying in Il Sole. The cottage was perfect for us. Bunk beds fine for our children (7 and 10) and main bedroom was gorgeous. Kitchen was well equipped and pool had lovely seating options, not to mention a totally stunning view and wonderful peace and quiet.

Only criticism is the drive-way. Beware - there is no warning that you need a 4x4, but we definitely should have had one. It may have been that it was bad following rain, but there are a lot of big holes and our hire car (a standard estate) didn't enjoy them. It's a mile long, very steep in places, gravely (wheel-spinning) and single-track with steep drops.

Location is great for hill towns aplenty, Lake Trasimeno, trains to Arezzo, Firenze, Roma etc. We also really enjoyed local walks up the mountain and all around. Perfect for when the weather turned a little cooler at the start of September.

hello becca and family, First thanks for taking the time to write a fantastic review including helpful information . You are right about the road, it was effected by the earlier storms, however this is a local community (government) road and should receive better maintenance for both locals and tourists.. The road has been made good recently by the owner to
make the journey for his guests better Most guests have a smaller vehicle, and now manage more easily.

One of the many wonderful things about cottage is its setting and view.... It does mean driving up , but once there it is worth it!

we wish you good and safe travels and maybe to see you all another time.
