The farmhouse is great, the rooms are well furnished and the kitchen is really well equipped. But the the best of all is the fantastic garden with the awesome view.

Tranquil Getaway In The Umbrian Countryside

My family of 3 had an incredible week at this beautiful restored farmhouse. The pictures simply do not do it justice. I have traveled extensively and stayed at some beautiful places but the setting of this farmhouse could not have been lovelier. In addition, both the owner and the property manager were great to work with and very responsive, both prior to our stay as well as during our time there. If you just want a place to hang out and relax or looking to take day trips to the many beautiful villages and towns in the surrounding area, you will not be disappointed.

Vasciano is simply a fantastic place to stay. It is a beautiful location on the Tuscany-Umbrian border, down a quiet track. It has fantastic views and a wonderful salt pool. It is peaceful and still - perfect for getting away from the rush of everyday life. The house is also well stocked with furniture, books, games, crockery and glassware; the kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. Hilary was excellent at offering advice and there are lots of things to do nearby. We really appreciated her telephone call to check that we had arrived safely. The garden is extremely well kept, and I cannot think of a nicer place to sit and read books for hours on end. Thanks for sharing your lovely house with us - we will certainly be ba

A Little Bit Of Pure Heaven

By on 29-Aug-2017

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was searching for a retreat on the Tuscan / Umbrian border and wanted something authentic and peaceful. My heart stopped as I approached the house was everything and more than I had hoped for! Villa Vasciano is set in the hills with spectacular views, a wonderful garden with many, almost secret hideaways in which to sit and relax ...and of course a stunning pool.
Hilary and Jack had anticipated every traveller's need and their obvious love for their home in Italy makes this a perfect holiday destination. The Villa is withing easy reach of all the wonderful Italian cities and hill top towns on our visiting list and we enjoyed returning in the early evening for a swim in the pool , supper in the garden and watching the fireflies dance in the moon light. Simply perfect! It was so hard leaving it after three weeks of heaven! A Loder 2017
