In the midst of all the doom, gloom, wars, revolutions and general despair isn't it time you, for once, treated yourself and your family to a really stupendous and luxurious holiday?
No bling, no flashing disco lights, no all-night bars, just the benefits of an English country house set in a medieval Italian monastery, with Roman and perhaps Etruscan foundations, set in the midst of the gentle Umbrian countryside, on the borders of Tuscany.
Accepted as the highest grade of accommodation by the Italian Tourist Authorities, this property has been classified as one of the most beautiful and well equipped residences in Umbria,
Antique furniture, beautiful gardens, amazing breakfast buffet, timber beams, terra cotta, old stone, marble-clad bathrooms, soft sheets, and in the spring and autumn, open fires with the wonderful smell of wood smoke, comfortable family atmosphere and resident owners.
A sedate country house set amongst open fields and tree covered gentle hills, ideal for relaxing, walking, cycling and horse-riding. Just three hundred meters from the village of Calzolaro, four kilometers from Trestina, with half a dozen bars and restaurants, and only a ten minute drive to Citta' di Castello, and Umbertide, which have several hundred shops.
Restaurants begin just 200 meters away, an amazing family-run pizzeria, and their wine, selected by Giorgio, the guv'nor, is produced locally in very small quantities, and, because there are no middle men, outlets, advertising or supermarkets involved, is of amazing quality, at a very affordable price.
For holidays, family occasions, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and family gatherings La Preghiera is ideal, and to further entertain your guests it is situated within forty minutes of ten medieval towns and cities, including Sansepulcro, Citta' di Castello, Montone, Gubbio, Umbertide, Perugia, Asissi, Magione, Passignano and Cortona.
Early bookings are always rewarded with discounted offers, so think seriously about a once in a lifetime treat and savour the delights of La Preghiera.
