We had also a private terrace with a swing and a barbecue. Breakfast ingredients were provided. This is a semidetached house, and a very kind and friendly landlord stayed on the other apartment. The yard is private and fenced and you can park your car right next to your apartment outdoor. The highway is near, and it is very easy to make trips to other cities. My daughter really loved the Città della Domenicà, the amusement park on the opposite mountainside. I highly recommend this apartment to a couple or to a small family. From this place you can enjoy some breathtaking views while relaxing in the pool.

Our apartment was clean and comfortable and the facilities within it, excellent. Tucked away in a secluded part of the grounds we felt like we were in our own little villa. We were able to purchase local produce and shop at nearby supermarkets, only a short distance by car. The excellent cooking facilities meant that we were able to cook our own meals on many occasions. The secure parking, with easy electronic access was a bonus, and the WiFi coverage was excellent. We made good use of the excellent swimming pool, and it was a great place to relax on a hot day, and meet other travellers from many different countries. Valentina was very welcoming, as were the rest of her family, including two little four legged friends(dogs), who we grew to love. Nothing was too much trouble for the family, and they were always concerned that we had everything we needed. A good pizza restaurant was recommended by Valentina, at nearby Montebello, with massive pizzas at an unbelievable price. There are many good restaurants to choose from in the Perugia area. It was an ideal location for visiting throughout Umbria and southern Toscana. Valentina provided lots of valuable information on places to visit, which we took advantage of. A couple of places not to be missed are Citta Delle Pieve and Bevagna, just enchanting and off the tourist track. Thank you Valentina and family for making our stay so enjoyable. We cannot recommend Le Blaze more highly, but stay as long as you can, to experience the hospitality and the Umbrian experience.
