Description from owner


A two-bedroom apartment in our traditional stone farmhouse, restored with original materials and a touch of modern style. In the spectacular countryside of the Sibillini foothills, this is the perfect place for family holidays or a romantic getaway.

With a double room and a twin room plus a futon mattress, the apartment can sleep up to five people (please note that the fifth person must be 12 years or younger). It is furnished to be comfortable but simple, with everything you need but no clutter. The fully equipped kitchen is a pleasure to cook in and opens directly out on to a veranda where guests can eat al fresco. At the other end of the house, an open "terrace room" is a peaceful space to while away the hottest hours of the day, reading, watching the kids play in the splashpool, or just gazing out over the valleys and hills.

Located in a peaceful rural area far from main roads the property is perfect for children to go safely wild, and offers a beautiful, calm space to wind down for stressed-out adults.

Wildlife abounds -- from butterflies to buzzards -- and at night the dark skies let you see the full glory of the Milky Way.

We have a 3.5 metre diameter circular splashpool which is great for children, and we have table tennis and darts in a converted barn. Children also love our animals -- a dog, two cats, chickens, and two ponies (one a Shetland). Both ponies can be handled and the larger one can be ridden (under strict supervision, of course) -- helping to feed and look after them is a highlight for many of our young visitors.

The house contains many, many books. Most in English but some in German and Italian.

We provide maps and tourist information as well as a guest book with previous guests' activity recommendations.

We have Wi-Fi but no television, something that many parents have thanked us for!

Getting around

Recently completed the upgrade to the SS77 has put Foligno within easy reach; opening up access to Umbria and Tuscany and making a day trip to Rome a possibility with fast trains from Foligno station.

Interaction with guest

We (John, Kirsty and Alessio, aged 18) live in the main part of the house. We are therefore on hand to welcome you when you arrive, and are always happy to offer help and advice if requested, but we generally just try to make ourselves part of the background. We have a vegetable patch and supply guests with vegetables in season, as well as fresh eggs from the chickens.
