Villa Pian di Cascina - Self-catering apartments in Italy
An amazing surprise at the top of the hill: an old farmhouse in acres of land with heavenly views and broom on the breeze. Isabel and Paul are hugely family-friendly but don't ignore the grown ups! As well as all you could possibly need for children there's an adult chill out zone with a hammock, massage and beauty treatments, gorgeous Italian food if you don't want to bother with cooking. Three self-catering houses stand in a row, each with a barbecue terrace: two-storey Cascina, characterful Villetta and cosy little Cantina. The barn, Granaio, has been converted into four ground-floor apartments, and interiors are fresh and immaculate. Find sofas, armchairs, log-burning stoves, excellent kitchens and wrought-iron beds, tiled floors, rustic walls, the odd beam. Read a book, listen to music, cool off in the pool, play ping pong or volley ball...it's family heaven. Wander the organic gardens planted with cherries, apricots and almonds; continue to open countryside and woods. Take the old unsignposted mountain road to Assisi for stunning views, drop in on Bevagna's gorgeous churches on the way. Magic in Umbria.
