Just returned from a really nice 7 day stay at cottage degli ulivi, great accommodation, lovely location set on a large plot with views of beautiful rural Umbrian countryside, the property was securely fenced with automatic gates, however the whole area felt completely safe. Athough in rural surroundings we were just a few minutes drive to town with all amenities, shops restaurants etc and a shopping center. It is an ideal base for driving with the scenic towns and cities all within easy reach, we even managed Rome which was just a 2 hour drive. The picture's of the cottage don't do it justice really, a great place to relax after a trip to Italy's famous sights. The owner Nadia was fantastic, when we were near by she met us escorted us up to the property, greeting us with a lovely home made cake, she took time to show us around and explain everything, it was my wife's birthday during our stay and she even helped organise flowers and a birthday cake. Nadia was knowledgeable with lots of helpful information where to go what to see etc, living locally it was nice to know she was on hand if needed but was very respectful of our privacy during the stay , a genuinely very nice person who obviously takes great pride in her property . The gardener was there a couple of mornings during our stay , but again respectful of our privacy and keeps the garden and pool areas lovely. We all really enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
