Overview

Facing west over a hilly landscape of olive groves, vineyards and the occasional stone farmhouse, Acqua e Miele (‘Milk and Honey’) is set in one of the most interesting parts of Umbria. Hill towns abound here, many of them founded in ancient Roman times as staging posts along their key trade route to the north. A thorough restoration has converted this old farmhouse into a marvellously user-friendly country retreat, with a fitted kitchen, brand new bathrooms with big showers, a games room and even high-speed internet. Plenty of the original character remains, along with traditionally Tuscan features such as a loggia for dining alfresco. A lawn dotted with olive trees wraps around the house and leads to a swimming pool with a large shallow area for children and plenty of loungers for sunbathing.

Clients reviews

Location was great - very peaceful but within easy distance of interesting places to visit. Very easy to visit Rome by train, and towns such as Perugia by car. We even went to Pompeii and Vesuvius with an over night stop in the value for money Hotel Diana in Pompeii. The villa was large enough to cater for a family group of 10 with a variety of interests. There was always something to do. The grounds were beautiful and the pool great for a range of swimmers. We particularly liked picking our own fruit and vegetables. Tuscany Now lived up to its usual high standards. I feel I can trust the website and what the agents say.

The Villa was wonderful and very well equipped. Grandchildren loved the shallow end of swimming pool and the toys, swings, etc. Showers great and beds comfy - all in all - a thoroughly enjoyable week.

We had an excellent stay and hope to come back one day! The house facilities, pool and location are everything we hoped for. Having access to local products and fruit and vegetables from the garden is a real bonus. Paula & her husband are very kind and helpful.

We were looking for a place were we could relax, but where young boys could still have fun, and burn off their energy!! We found it. The house is wonderful, as are the views, private, but still close to towns big and small. We visited Perugia a couple of times as we loved the small, but friendly city! A great place to relax, or as a fairly central base from which to explore.
