We spent a superb week at Il Granio on the Cantina Goccia Estate in the beautiful

Umbrian countryside just outside the village of Petrognano.

Il Granio is a lovely property, nestling in the grounds of Villa Melocotogno sympathetically re- constructed to a very high standard with the advantages of modern living whilst at the same time maintaining the original position of the grain store, benefitting from welcome breezes in the heat of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, which was a huge plus given the soaring summer temperatures. Early morning walks in the woods are a must and an amble back through the orchard set us all up for breakfast. The village of Petrognano is no more than a five minute drive away, further afield we enjoyed trips to Sienna and Multipulciano, as well as regular shopping trips to Castiglione Del Lago, don't miss Gelateria Be Bop, they have ice cream to die for.

The owners agents, Riccardo and Irene, were always available to help with our questions and made our stay very comfortable.

Overall, a great find and one we hope to return to in the future.
