A note from Jo
This property is one of a dozen villas and apartments that we have in Paciano. We have selected so many properties here as we think it's a great village. There are a good selection of restaurants to try and a holiday here is very much an opportunity to enjoy an authentic stay in Umbria. We love the fact that the owners of the apartment take such great care of all our guests too. You'll receive an incredibly warm Italian welcome and they'll be on hand to help you with anything you may need during your stay.
