Welcome to a big, solid, meticulously restored farmhouse with chestnut windows, shutters and doors. Beautiful vistas swoop across wooded hills, olive groves and the odd tower-topped hamlet… you feel on top of the world. Paved paths lead through cherry trees, lavender, herbs, and a little veg patch you may raid, to a hammock, pergola and exquisitely positioned infinity pool. La Stalletta, the cottage, is cosy and charming and the new apartment La Cisterna is beautifully modern in style with whitewashed beams and a kitchenette under the stairs. Outside: masses of space. Your lovely eco-conscious hosts Salvatore and Sarah think of every last detail: lavender bags, flowers and their own olive oil; truffle and asparagus foraging tips, pizza and pasta making (and eating!). You can have breakfast, light lunches and dinner twice a week in the brand new dining room ‘La Spesetta’ – rustic dishes made from fresh organic ingredients. Sip Sal’s homemade limoncellos over sublime sunsets on the terrace, gaze at the distant towers of Perugia – and the stars.
