We stayed in Papaveri, the upstairs of the appartment was lovely and spacious, however the downstairs was rather small, with uncomfortable seating.
Views from the pool were breathtaking but the black pool liner made the pool very un-inviting. Needs more umbrellas around the side of the pool.
Great Pizza evening.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You can have the best of both worlds at Alsagra. Mums and dads can take a deep breath of warm, olive grove-scented air and relax with a glass of local wine as the sun sets with a golden glow over the stunning hill villages of Tuscany. Meanwhile, even young kids can do their own thing, distracted by two fully-equipped play areas and oodles of toys, while being kept safe by child-proof door gates in each apartment and fences around the stunning solar-heated pool.Owners Stephen and Helen live close by with their own two small people, so they know exactly what parents with children in tow need to kick back and enjoy a holiday. It shows in the way in which they have lovingly restored their fabulous traditional Umbrian stone farmhouse, set in two acres of terraced olive groves, gardens and Chestnut and Oak woodlands, with family needs firmly in mind.The house itself sits on hill on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, overlooking the pretty village of San Giovanni Del Pantano and with incredible views towards Assisi, Magione and Perugia. It is divided into three independent self-catering apartments, each with high-beamed wooden ceilings, terracotta tiled flooring and windows staring dreamily out over the valley below.Each apartment has a living area with a comfortable sofa and lounging chairs, a CD/radio system, free WiFi, and central heating for out-of-season visitors. Kitchens have all mod-cons; fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, hob and oven with grill but a warm traditional colour palette and hand-made wooden surfaces give the whole place a wonderful warm Italian rustic feel. No need to worry about privacy either. Once you've had enough socialising with your chilled-out fellow trippers around the pool, you can retire to your secluded private patio, complete with BBQ, chairs and loungers. ... more less
