Italien, Umbrien, Amelia
There are many things to say about this property, but I will try to keep it short. The house is wonderful, and the view beautiful. It's comfortable and clean, although water pressure is a bit low, and the staff is very kind and helpful. Parts of the staff speaks a little english, but one should be almost fluent in italian to stay here. The nearby village of Amelia is equally beautiful and friendly, but difficult unless one speaks some italian. Walking there can also be dangerous, busses are very few and tickets can't be purchased on board, so a rental car is necessary to stay comfortably in this property. Otherwise, ask for Alfredo, a very helpful taxi driver and guide from nearby Narni who speaks good english. I would recommend staying here in season, which we did not. The pool is not available until april, and the heating cost really hit us below the belt since we did not turn down all the radiators. We also missed out on the property restaurant, which was only open during weekend evenings. As for restaurants in nearby Amelia, I would like to recommend La Locanda del Conte Nitto with all my heart. The food is delicious and the service extraordinary! The wonderful host Salvatore also spekas very good english. I would gladly come back to stay in this property again, preferably in season, and I certainly feel that the village of Amelia is worth returning to.
Bij aankomst werden we hartelijk in gebrekkig Engels (who cares) ontvangen, we werden direct naar ons appartement geleid. Heerlijk koel en netjes was het binnen. Prima tijd gehad en ons uitstekend vermaakt in het zwembad. 's avonds is het zwembad mooi verlicht. Het was een top vakantie!
