The Owners

Stephen and Helen have worked in Canada and Italy in an environment where meeting customer demands and requirements was their measure of success. Their combined experience has given them an understanding of different cultures, ability to converse in various languages and how to provide a service that meets and exceeds expectations.

They moved to Umbria a number of years ago during which time they renovated the old farmhouse, that traditionally used to “house animals”,  into living accommodation and three independent self catering apartments. They also installed a pool and renovated the old bread oven, created beautiful patio areas and learnt how to live and integrate with local Umbrians. Their wonderful daughter Poppy and son Michele have helped them understand the needs of smaller and now bigger children. They live in the main house which is separate from the apartments, it includes their own garden, entrances and patios.

Having lived in the area for a number of years they are always happy and available to answer questions of the local area, advise on the best places to visit, shop, eat or just relax.  They are available to help at any time should your children need medical assistance, can direct you to the nearest accident/emergency and provide translation service as required.
