We spent a wonderful relaxing holiday here in Monte Santa Maria, far from the noise and stress of daily life. The house and its surroundings are amazing; lots of space and green!
The owners guided us to the house, which was a good thing, because the road is very isolated and not easy to find the first time. They showed us around and told us about things to do in the surrounding area. They are adorable people and always ready to help out, like that time we forgot our keys inside the house!
The house is perfectly clean and very spacious with 4 comfortable rooms and 3 perfect bathrooms. The kitchen is big and functional. The house stays cool when it's hot outside. The garden is big and well kept and so is the pool. The water was not very warm, but refreshing as the weather was hot. The outside shower is just perfect.
The surrounding nature is stunning, it's a pleasure waking up with such a beautiful view and just enjoying the silence. In the evening we admired the amazing sunsets from the terrace. There is absolutely no noise; the first neighbour is a very friendly sheep herder, a few hundred meters away.
The area is hilly with lots of typical medieval villages to visit and beautiful cities like Perugia, Citta di Castello or Arezzo nearby. The lake Lago Trasimeno is also worth a visit.
In the nearby village Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, 5 min by car or at a 30 min. walk, you can find the restaurant Oscari with delicious food and a beautiful view from its terrace. It also has a tiny grocery store in its back room.
We highly recommend this house, our only complaint were the many insects, surely due to the warm weather or just bad luck!
Enjoy your holiday!☺
