Poggio dei Papi in Città della Pieve

I recently stayed at Poggio dei Papi near Città della Pieve, in Umbria. I ended up there by chance actually. I was supposed to arrive to Milan, but our bus broke down near Perugia and therefore we decided that we'd be better off spending the night in the area.
This is a very modern accommodation, a b&b in Umbria with rooms that have all the privacy you may want. Even if we stayed here just one night, we could appreciate all the services that it offers. It isn't very fancy, but that's just what you would look for in a rustic accommodation, isn't it? It is sad that we arrived in the late afternoon, as we could not enjoy a full day at this bed and breakfast Umbria, but we could still see how beautiful the outdoors are, with an Olympic swimming pool located in the intensely green lawn.

The position of this B&B Umbria is really enviable. The private garden of the property is filled with lush plants and blossoming flowers, a true blessing if you need to relax in the countryside. The rooms are all with climate control and air conditioning, furnished with sober taste but very comfortable furniture, and large king-size beds. There is plenty to do for people loving sports such as fitness centers, football field, tennis courts, and a wellness center with sauna.

The total number of rooms of this bed-and-breakfast in Umbria is 31 also including eight suites. The breakfast in the morning was actually really good and satisfying. Prices are not very cheap but a holiday at Poggio dei Papi bed and breakfast in Umbria is certainly one I want to experience in my lifetime, and I will be back.
