Although I do say in my contacts section that I do product reviews, I rarely do them most of the time I really can’t be arsed. Today I going to recommend not a product per-say but a place.
Now the follow post is all my own words opinions and thoughts, I recieved no payments/backhanders etc
So last week we spent an amazing week together as a 3 person family, our family dynamics will change soon enough so this was a period of time that we’ll cherish, next year we’ll have new memories. We’ve never really had a family holiday alone, we’ve been away as a family but most of the time that involves us running around like headless chickens.
We spent a beautiful week in Italy, being in Europe we wanted to take advantage of the accessibility of it and also being able to drive, as airline tickets do not come cheap anymore. I was recommended a website called babyfriendlyboltholes. It was here that we found beautiful Alsagra, ran by an English couple called Helen and Stephen who moved to Umbria a few years ago. They renovated an old farm-house and turned it into a self catering apartments and their beautiful home. The couple themselves have two children so completely understand holidays with little ones in tow, I think until you’ve experienced this you’ll never comprehend whats involved.
I was so surprised at the accommodation, how spacious, modern and well equip it was, they was nothing we wanted for. On request you can have cots, buggy’s, highchairs, toys, monitors. The surrounding were also second to none, the view was just perfect, the family have 4 cashmere goats that LPV religiously said hello too every morning, Alsagra has a pool, a playground, complete with zip wire and an old gypsy caravan for the children to play on. it 20 minutes from the beach and only a couple of hours from beautiful Pisa and Florence.
This place is set up in the mountains on The Umbrian/Tuscan border surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, not too shabby I can tell you. You do absolutely need a car to get around also but that gives you so much more freedom to explore one of the most beautiful countries ever!!
Now you finished reading you can head on over and book your next years holiday!!
