We cannot praise La Serena high enough. It's been the true discovery of a trip whose main objective was the discovery of Umbria. We not only discovered an amazing land but also an amazing couple. Stephanie and Derek run La Serena with exquisite care, passion and dedication. You feel at home and in some respects even better than being at...

Great service, great food and fantastic friends. Steph and Derek makes your holiday into a great experience.Dereks cooking and Stephs cakes are to die for.... They help you with a visit to different cantinas around the area.Don`t drink too much wine! The swimmingpool is very nice and clean. The BBQ they served us was magic.

The charming B&B is surrounded by stunning countryside and views of historical villages with cobbled streets and character. Beyond the scenic surroundings are places of great interest and...

It has a fabulous swimming pool and a general atmosphere that made us feel really at home. But the best part ? The people.

From the moment my daughter and I meet Steph and Derek, we knew we were going to be "taken care of" in the best of ways. La Serena is lovely -- its location (the Italian countryside is amazing), its furnishings, its comfortable beds, its big bathrooms, its library with wifi, its solar panels, and most importantly, its hosts!
