Perks for the Parents

This apartment in a restored stone farmhouse looks out over fragrant gardens and olive groves, and has a treehouse and play equipment for the kids plus a lovely shared and fenced pool. It sleeps up to 4 + 1. It would be an ideal apartment for parents with 2 or 3 young children. The hosts have thought of everything for a relaxing stay with kids. There are stair gates, a fenced pool with plenty of loungers, toys galore, and a private terrace with views for leisurely family meals al fresco. The hosts offer an in-house menu with a wide range of freshly prepared home-cooked Italian dishes, and even arrange a babysitter for a child-free evening or two.

Why Kids Love it

Younger visitors will love the play area around the swimming pool with its shaded pergola, play house and table football. Leading from the shaded terrace is a children’s play area and a tree house tucked away in the olive grove. The nearby river that has pools where you can swim or catch crabs. The swimming pool is fully fenced and has a shallow end with Roman steps, making it easy to enter for all ages and there is also a covered paddling pool for little ones. There are heaps of toys and books for young kids as well as high chairs, cribs, kids’ cutlery and more. Whenever possible, the hosts organize a weekly pizza-making session where kids can roll their own dough and select toppings before their creation is cooked in the woodburning pizza oven.

It’s a peaceful oasis and a great base to explore the surrounding area – the main sights of Umbria including Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio and Lake Trasimeno are all within a 30-minute drive. Take a stroll from the bridleway at the front of the house – you’re surrounded by stunning hiking routes over the rolling countryside.

Spacious, traditional, incredible views. This apartment is situated at the top of the farmhouse and has high ceilings giving it an airy feel.

In a moment of madness we decided to up sticks and move from Surrey to rural Umbria. With a baby on the way, little in the way of Italian and a derelict farmhouse to renovate, life for the first year was certainly very hectic! A few years down the line we have two children who attend the local italian schools, two cats, Charlotte and Blu and six free range chickens!! Now after 15 years we really think of this little slice of Italy as home.

Umbria, Italy

Green valleys and chocolate kisses

Bordering Tuscany in the middle of Italy, Umbria is a region of sweet green hills and sweet chocolate - Baci chocolates, (baci means kisses in Italian) are made here in Perugia. There are lots of attractions for families, from vineyards to Italy’s highest waterfall, shrouded in mist and shining with rainbows. For kids that love natural history, there’s a cave with dinosaur remains and a fossilised forest to visit; not forgetting the more obvious delights of Perugina chocolate factory and Tavenelle waterpark in Perugia. And this is Italy: “no thanks, I don’t like gelato, pizza or pasta” said no kid, ever - the food is delicious.
