“Our luxury home away from home”

La Buia is more than what I had anticipated. Lucy and Richard raised it from ruins to create a beautiful, comfortable and extremely well-appointed villa. Each of the three bedrooms (all located on different floors) is comfortable and spacious with on-suite modern baths. The kitchen is large by European standards and worked well for five of us to prepare meals at home. There are enough areas to relax in the villa that five people can comfortable spread out and not even hear one another. The outdoors offers several areas for enjoyment. The pool was a welcome respite during this very hot August vacation. We dined at the large round table under the pergola. We sipped wine on the terrace and marveled at the quiet and the stars. I live in the country but I have never seen so many stars in my life. Every was done with taste and everywhere you look, Richard and Lucy have taken care to provide something special...draping grape vines around the pool area, potted plants, sculpture, herbs and native plants. The location is remote enought to be peaceful but central enough to be within an hour or so of all of the Umbrian locations we wanted to visit. The surrounding views are straight from a postcard. We were lucky enough to have some wine and conversation with Lucy and Richard, who are really lovely. Lucy made a reservation for us at a fabulous local restaurant and Richard was kind enough to meet the Air France lugguage transporters to claim our lost luggage. Two of their daughters prepared a fabulous meal for our first night. None of us had cell phone reception at the villa but the wifi allowed us to stay as in touch with things back home as we wanted. The laundry facilities were most welcomed as we had been on the road for a while. Rent a car, pick up some groceries and wine at the local market, bring some good light reading, plot some day trips (I recommend Cortona, Gubbio, and Orvieto in particular) and relax at La Buia. I felt it was an excellent value and was a major factor in how relaxing our vacation turned out to be. There is a first floor bedroom so it would work for people who want mostly single floor living but there are stairs, both inside and out. So if you have trouble with stairs it's probably not the ideal location for you.

Liked best: It's hard to pick one thing -- it was a beautiful and comfortable home away from home
Liked least: If the directions to the villa indicated the kilometers between various points, we woudl have felt more confident. A big group like ours could have used a bigger French press, but I'm really reaching for something to complain about
