Staying with Steph and Derek is just like staying with old friends. This was our 2nd visit, but they treated us just as well during our 1st visit two years earlier. La Serena is a lovely house set in the Umbrian countryside with lovely views across the nearby fields to the hills in the distance. We were here for a...

This beautiful guest house has large, luxurious rooms and a fantastic swimming pool for use in the summer. Located just a short drive from Perugia, Assisi and some lovely villages and not too far from Rome and Florence you couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay if you want to explore Umbria. Steph & Derek and wonderful hosts who...

wonderful base for fab mini break away in the Umbrian region. Hosts helped us with local knowledge, we did tours of vin yards, castle villages, Perugia, and the nearby lake. The Hotel is home from home with every convenience to make you really comfy in this purpose built hotel. Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.Excellent fresh local food.

We have just returned home from a fabulous holiday based at La Serena and have promised ourselves we will definitely be going back!
