My wife and I and our three-year-old son stayed here for five nights (in the Rustico Alessandra outbuilding), and had a wonderful time. The location is dead gorgeous, with views (even a 360-degree one if you ascend to the small roof deck over the office), and the ancient buildings are surrounded by olive groves. You do look down to the highway, but it's far enough away that it doesn't detract from the beauty. There are also frequent trains that pass -- again, maybe a half-mile distant -- about which my son was quite excited.
Now, the cats. There are a lot of them, and they just roam around -- they're fun to look at, and you see them draped over stone walls or asleep in planters, etc. We even made up our own names for them. In other words, they weren't a problem . . .for us. But I could imagine someone who was less tolerant finding the situation a bit out of hand.
We loved it here and would return, for sure. Mama Wanda kept coming by with baked goods. The nearby towns are fun to explore (Trevi, Bevagna, Montefalco, Spoleto), and you can eat and drink yourself silly. Highly recommended. I wish I were back at I Mandorli right now.
