Here’s what our customer Mrs B.D. of Bristol, UK wrote about her family holiday at Villa degli Olivi, just 1.5km from the medieval town of Castiglion Fiorentino, Tuscany:

Villa degli Olivi

Villa degli Olivi

Had fabulous holiday. Villa Degli Olivi was absolutely beautiful and Aida and Massimo were so kind and welcoming and truly lovely to my 90 year old mum who was very keen to practice her rusty Italian!!

My ‘children’ thought the pool and grounds were magnificent, kept lush and green with gorgeous flowers and the pool has a proper deep end which in our experience is unusual, but for teenagers makes a really massive difference to their enjoyment of using the pool.

We have been holidaying as an extended family for donkeys years (since 1986?) but really loved this villa a lot. Castiglion Fiorentino is a very pretty local town, particularly with the station which we found very useful as you suggested (Florence and Rome for some) and two fantastic restaurants we went to. (Steak connoisseur brother thought best ever!)

From: Gillian at www.onestopitaly.com

A big response to my previous blog posts about Lake Trasimeno, so I thought today I’d talk about one of our properties in that area where there are just a few July/August weeks still remaining. I went there myself many years ago and it has always been very popular with families because there are a lot of sporty activities on-site:  swimming pool, table tennis, volleyball ground, tennis court, bicycle hire.

It’s called Quiete and it’s located in a quiet spot just 13km from Lake Trasimeno (where there are watersports of all kinds). There are three apartments in the property and the rental price for the school summer holiday period is Euro 705 per week (approx. £625 at current exchange rate) for those sleeping 6 people, and the the one sleeping 8 is a bit more expensive. Very good value for money. Plus you have the Etruscan town of Cortona at approx 15km to satisfy any cultural requirements! You can fly from Stansted to Perugia, from where it  is only a short drive to the accommodation.
