"Just returned from a wonderful 11 days at this beautiful villa in the town of Panicale along with wife and 4 friends all over the age of 57. Our second stay at this house was every bit as great as our first 9 years ago. Katia took care of all of our needs from arranging an exquisite meal cooked by a local grandmother (more on that later) to meeting us with the keys when we arrived to helping us with the washer and dryer when the instructions went missing. The house itself has three bedrooms, two being queen beds and the other being two twins that are more for kids/teens but usable for adults. There are three-and-a-half bathrooms which are more than enough. Please note that if you have elderly or very young children there are a lot of stairs but they lead from one useful floor to another. Description: Ground floor is entry way and first bedroom with bathroom and shower attached. Staircase into basement which goes back to 14th century is also here. Basement has laundry area, boiler for hot water and is not a "living" space. First floor is the living room, dining room and extremely large and well-stocked kitchen along with a half-bathroom. Second floor has two bathrooms, one with tub, the other with separate tub and shower areas along with a queen bedroom, quite large, and the twin bedroom, a bit tighter but still functional. Third floor is the amazing rooftop terrace overlooking the Umbrian countryside and the red-tiled rooftops of the town. There are far worse things to do than sit up here with your coffee in the morning or your wine and cheese in the evenings. All of us were commenting on how hard going back to reality would be after this.
Katia arranged for a local grandma to come on our last night to cook a real Italian from-scratch meal for the six of us. We watched her and her assistant spend hours preparing pasta from the egg and flour, kneading for an eternity, rolling until perfectly consistent and smooth, cutting it into perfect strips. The only problem was that we did this the last night and should have done it earlier so we could have eaten all the leftovers. There was enough food for at least one more complete meal for all of us. Greatest, freshest meal I have ever eaten.
Nothing else to add that hasn't already been said in other reviews. Can't wait to return. Thank you, Katia and owners.
There really is nothing else to ad"
