You might think it is a bit too early to go to paradise yet, after  all life is not so bad! Paradise on earth however, would not be a bad  choice!

Paradiso  is the name of the area where this private villa with swimming pool is  situated. Paradiso is close to Assisi, about 9 kilometers. A beautiful,  tranquil area with green fields, olive groves and woodland. Peaceful and  with wonderful views on the National Park of the Monte Subasio (Assisi  is at the foothill of this mountain).

Il Paradiso is a private  villa with swimming pool. Three bedrooms sharing two bathrooms. There is  a  snooker table and several things for children to play with. There  is, for instance, a sliding cable in the garden.

The swimming pool  is on the lowest terrace and is 12 meters by 6 and between 1.30 and  2.10 meters deep. There are Roman steps to one side, with whirlpool.  There are 6 sun beds and 2 recliners and a table with chairs. There is  also a pizza oven and wood barbecue at one side of the pool. A small wc  is present as well.

3 kms down the hill is a good restaurant that  also does take away and they have a small grocery store. The first large  supermarket is at Santa Maria degli Angeli, about 12 kms away.

Other distances from the house: Gualdo Tadino 33 kms, Perugia 24 kms, Spello 11 kms, Spoleto 48 kms.

One  enters this private villa in the living room with a large dining table,  a big wood stove and an angular sofa for 6. There is an open arch to  get to the kitchen. The kitchen has a 5 pit gas cooker, electrical oven,  big fridge/freezer combination, Italian espresso machine, a real  slicing machine for cold cuts and a dishwasher.

Behind the living  room there is an open area with another sofa and a bathroom with shower.  Next door is the snooker room, this used to be the garage and it still  has a garage door. Here you will also find the washing machine.

Upstairs  are three bedrooms and one bathroom, also with shower. The bedrooms are  two doubles and one twin. The twin can also be made into a double.  There are two spare beds that can either be added to one of the double  bedrooms as a bunk bed or you can have one extra single bed per double  bedroom.

One bedroom has a door to a spacious terrace and from  this terrace you can walk into the higher terrace of the garden (the  garden is made into several terraces).

Throughout the house there  is a built in radio system that you can tune into if you like. If you  prefer silence, you can simply leave it switched off.

In front of  the entrance an outside table with chairs are placed under an old shady  tree. Ideal for outside dining. The Weber barbecue works on charcoal and  is very easy to use and move around.

There is a gate for cars as  well as a pedestrian gate. You can either park outside the gate or on  the property, below the villa. The driveway is rather steep.

Pool is open from half May until the end of September.

Zou zo terug gaan

Toplocatie, heerlijke tuin, fantastisch zwembad! Hele huis voorzien van goede horren, geen mug binnen gehad :-).

Hi Sander, dank je wel voor de feedback! Altijd fijn om te lezen dat gasten het naar de zin hadden, en ook nog zonder muggen ;-)). Groeten uit Umbrië, Saskia

Wonderful stay!

The place is truly a little paradise. The gardens and pool area are very relaxing and the perfect place to spend mornings before going out to explore Umbria.

Thank you for your feedback. It is always good to read our guests enjoyed their stay. All the best and maybe until a next time. Saskia

It couldn't have been better.

Dear Saskia and Sylvia We loved it. The house was spacious and comfortable and private, and the grounds and pool were a constant treat. Silvia's husband helped with the pool on the first night, then left us to enjoy ourselves, which we did. Truly, it couldn't have been better. Warmest wishes Peter

Een echt "paradiso"

Beste Saskia & Sylvia In eerste instantie was Villa Paradiso voor ons een last-minute noodoplossing, toen we niet terecht konden op ons vertrouwde adres in Umbrië. Maar wat zijn we tevreden geweest met deze agriturismo ! De beschrijving op uw website klopt tot in de puntjes. Wij waren er met 4 volwassenen en 2 kinderen (5 en 7 jaar), en iedereen heeft het geweldig naar zijn zin gehad, zowel met het huis en de accomodatie, als met de speeltuigen in de tuin en met het zwembad. Wat we ook leuk vonden: de hagen en tuinplanten zorgen voor een bijna perfecte privacy, en de weg langsheen het huis wordt nauwelijks gebruikt, wat gezien de afgelegen ligging op de heuvel eigenlijk normaal is. Een goede GPS is wel nuttig om het huis te vinden, althans de eerste keer. We kunnen deze locatie alleen maar aanbevelen voor iedereen die het rustige Umbrische landschap waardeert. En nogmaals dank voor uw advies om te kiezen voor Il Paradiso !

Very relaxing

We had a wonderful time at Il Paradiso. Such wonderful views a beautiful villa and gardens. The peace and ambience are so relaxing. When we return to Umbria we will certainly be staying at Il Paradiso.

Dutch and English reviews copied from previous Villa in Umbria website

2017: Dear Saskia and Sylvia We would like to thank you for our recent stay in Il Paradiso. Right from our first contact with you the process has been very efficient. There were always rapid replies to e mails and confirmation of payments received. This we find very reassuring. We were greeted at the property as arranged (the security deposit was waived) Il Paradiso is a superior villa in a wonderful quiet setting in the hills north of Assisi. Facilities are first class with 3 good bedrooms, a large kitchen/ living / dining room plus a pool table in a converted garage. There is a shower room / toilet on both floors. Outside the grounds are large and for a private villa a excellent swimming pool. There are lots of places to sit, eat or just escape! There are plenty of places to visit locally Assisi Perugia and Gubbio being the obvious ones but there are plenty of others. If it does rain (it did one day during our stay) there is always the shopping complex at Collestada near Perugia. Again thank you for our great holiday. We would definitely recommend Villa in Umbria and Il Paradiso. Kind Regards, Richard and Jane Holding Hallo, We hadden een leuk verblijf in Il Paradiso Assisi. Na aankomst langsheen Assisi (hoogte 300m) rijd je een 8-tal km verder de bergen in tot op een hoogte van 700m. Hier vind je achter een metalen retro poort deze ruime villa, waar alle comfort te vinden is. Heerlijk hier buiten te ontbijten met prachtig zicht. Je kan hier zelf een lekkere pizza bakken in de pizza oven (deegrecept kunnen we altijd bezorgen) of gewoon genieten van het zwembad met prachtig zicht op de heuvels. Mvg, Josie en Marleen 2016: Dear Saskia and Sylvia, Thanks for a fabulous holiday. A little feedback for the owners. We loved the house, full of character, all the toys, great pool, fantastic location 15 min from Assisi, wonderful restaurant at the bottom of the hill, so please pass on our huge thanks. I work for a conservation organization so having the wildlife about was wonderful, especially the butterflies. However, the owners my like to check the house, as we had to deal with 4 black scorpions located about the house, one in a wash bag. Whilst this was not a problem for us, others may feel that is a bit of a generous supply of scorpions! Please pass on our huge thanks for a wonderful holiday. Best withes, Philip England 2015: Beste Saskia en Sylvia, onze vakantie in Umbrië was perfect, de villa voldeed volledig aan onze verwachtingen. Het huis was heerlijk koel en muggenvrij. Met de luiken konden we overdag de zon goed buiten houden, 's avonds deden we de ramen open om de afkoelende bergwind binnen te laten en zorgen de horren voor alle ramen dat de beestjes buiten bleven. Alles was netjes opgeruimd in huis de beloofde handdoeken lagen klaar, de bedden waren opgemaakt. Heerlijk! De eigenaars zorgend voor een warm onthaal. De tuin is netjes en goed onderhouden. Het zwembad is heerlijk om in af te koelen na de warme zomerdagen. Er zitten wel redelijk veel beestjes rond het water. De zon zakte weg achter de berg zo rond 18.00 uur en dan ligt het zwembad en de omgeving ervan in de schaduw. Maar dit vormde voor ons geen probleem omdat het net zo'n warme dagen waren (38 graden en meer overdag!). De villa is ook prima gelegen, niet te ver van Assisi, maar toch heerlijk in de natuur. Ook Perugia, Deruta, Gubbio zijn van hieruit gemakkelijk bereikbaar. Met andere woorden, een heerlijk vakantieverblijf in een supermooie streek, goed weer, lekker eten, wat kan een mens nog meer verlangen? Een aanrader! Dank voor jullie zorgen en hopelijk tot de volgende vakantie! Isabelle Dag Saskia en Sylvia, Voor de vierde maal hebben we het super naar ons zin gehad. Dit huis was dan wel top! Alles was er, we kwamen niets tekort. Het uitzicht vanuit het zwembad was fenomenaal. Prima van ligging want wij zitten graag wat afgelegen. Dit is een huis waar we zeker nog eens gaan terugkomen. Rob en Sadia Beste Saskia en Sylvia, we blikken inderdaad terug met plezier en ook een beetje nostalgie op onze vakantie in Umbrie. We hebben genoten van de zon, het rustige leven, de indrukwekkende mooie landschappen en dorpen, en de lekkere Italiaanse keuken. Ons verblijf in Il Paradiso Assisi was super OK. Het huis was gewoon prachtig. Er ontbrak niet aan ruimte en er was zelfs een schommel en glijbaan voor ons kindje. Het panoramische zwembad met zicht o de ganse groene omgeving droeg ook bij tot deze idyllische sfeer. Bedankt opnieuw aan de eigenaar voor het cadeautje bij onze aankomst, een fles witte wijn uit Umbrie. En bedankt ook aan jullie Saskia an Sylvia. Dankzij Villa in Umbria hebben we een onvergetelijke vakantie kunnen beleven. Familie Tourneur 2014: Hi ladies, We had a really nice stay in the villa. The only hiccup of the entire stay was that we were unable to get the wifi to work on the property at all. I think my husband was able to get a signal twice in the 6 days we were there, but it was never strong enough for us to load a website or send an email. That was really frustrating, as the advertisement for the villa clearly said it had wifi, and my dad was planning to work via internet while we were there via internet but was unable to. We talked to Michela about it and she tried to help, but in the end it was decided that the thick stone walls and the hilly terrain just prevented the wifi from working. We were able to take the wifi with us into the towns and then use it there, which we told Michela as well. The rest of the stay was very nice. We found the grounds extremely kid-friendly, the house very nicely decorated and comfortable. Michela and Riccardo were there promptly at check in and check out, and the view from the house was extraordinary. They recommended a family friend as a babysitter and she was perfect, friendly and kind and on time. I think we would gladly return to the villa again on another vacation, as we adored Umbria and all the delicious food! Thanks! Sally Rumsey Villa in Umbria: WiFi internet works fine now! Dear Sylvia and Saskia, Our family spent a week at Il Paradiso at the beginning of August 2014. I can honestly say that we had the most relaxing holiday ever here. In fact, on our last night we booked for next year; this time for 2 weeks. What we liked: - The house was spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable. It has obviously been designed and furnished with great attention to detail and was very stylish. - The pool area was great. The pool itself was large and had roman steps, useful for the kids; the views from the pool were amazing. Just beautiful. My husband and I spent lots of time just staring at the view! - the gardens were totally private and full of things our children loved, especially the zip wire and swings. Because there was lots of grass they could run around very safely. - the house is very secure, so much so that we locked ourselves out twice! Totally our fault, but Ricardo came round straight away both times and was very helpful and good humored. This really matters when you are in an unfamiliar environment. - we loved the fact that the villa was so peaceful and surrounded by nature but very close to Assisi and other places to visit. - the wifi was useful. Regards, Carole Kenney-Greenwood Juli 2013: Beste, Inderdaad is de vakantie weer achter de rug en blikken we terug op de mooie vakantie in Umbrie. Wij zijn zeer tevreden over het huis op zich, de tuin en het zwembad. Zeer vriendelijke eigenaren en alles was zeer netjes en verzorgd en we genoten de ganse week van de volledige privacy. De prijs stemt overeen met wat we kregen. Dat was wel helemaal anders de twee weken daarna in Toscane. De ligging van het huis was voor ons niet zo ideaal omdat wij veel op ontdekking gaan en dus elke dag de berg op en af moesten, toch een twaalf km tot Assisi om van daaruit verder te rijden. Uiteraard was er wel complete rust. Een tweede nadeel was dat de zon redelijk vroeg(half zes) achter de heuvel verdween waardoor het vlug afkoelde. Misschien toch het melden waard. Er was toch een temperatuurverschil van 4 à 5 graden met beneden in de stad. Maar verder zijn wij zeer tevreden en gaan we zeker een beroep doen op jullie als we een volgende verblijf zoeken. Met vriendelijke groeten, Danny & Chris We had an absolutely wonderful holiday in Il Paradiso Assisi. We stayed for nearly two weeks in July 2013 with our two small children. We found the villa exceptionally easy to reach and a very short drive from Perugia airport. The very friendly owners, Michela and Silvia, were there to meet us when we arrived and show us around the house. They could not have been kinder to us, even helping us out when we needed to print out our boarding passes later in the week by letting us come to their office. (there is no internet at the house which may bother some people but for us it was a welcome break!). The villa itself is a fabulous mix of old and new, combining the rustic charm of an old farmhouse but having the advantage of many modern conveniences. Anything you could think of is there and very good quality. One thing in particular we noticed was the attention to detail in the entire house and grounds, it doesn’t feel like a holiday house at all, more like a nice well-kept family home. The house was very cool inside due to the thick stone walls which was a welcome relief in the midday heat and was also large enough inside to spread out. The bedrooms are very lovely and extremely comfortable. I was a bit worried about the lack of fans or air conditioning but it wasn’t a problem at all. Outside there was so much space and very beautifully laid out with lavender and rosemary bushes and lovely fruit trees. The kids especially loved the swing set, hammock and zip wire plus it was completely safe to let them run around and play in the grounds as we were closed off from the road. The highlight for us was the fantastic swimming pool, deep enough for adults to swim properly but also perfect for our little ones with the shallow steps. Was great to have the sun loungers and the table and chairs as shade and very useful to have the toilet and shower by the pool also. The view from the swimming pool was absolutely breath taking, I took so many photos of it! We particularly liked the fact the villa was very private and peaceful, yet in 10 minutes in the car you could be at Assisi. Best of both worlds. We went often for lunch or dinner in and around Assisi and could be home quickly when the kids were tired or wanted to jump in the pool. Overall, I thought the standard of the Villa was excellent and ranks among the best holiday rentals I have ever stayed in. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone, especially for families with kids. Please pass on our thanks for a lovely stay! Thanks, Anna - UK Hi again, I would like to emphasize that this holiday in il paradiso was one of the best we have had in a rented property, the place was absolutely charming and the owners very sweet and responsive (as we had a case of a drowned animal in the swimming pool, they drove over the same day to fix it). The pool and the villa were in very good condition. The view from upstairs balcony was fantastic. Many thanks to the owners! If there would be any feedback to the direction of further development, more cutlery in the kitchen would be appreciated, was a bit difficult to find a pair of fork & knife when eating and there was no good knife for cutting bread etc but we managed, this was more fine-tuning. Marsio family - Finland September/Oktober 2013: Beste Willemijn en Saskia, Wij hebben twee geweldige weken in Il Paradiso Assisi doorgebracht. Wat een fantastisch huis! 
Wij hebben geloof ik nog nooit in zo'n goed schoongemaakt en goed uitgerust huis vakantie gevierd. En dan de tuin (met zeer veel speelmogelijkheden) , het zwembad, de buitenbarbecue en pizza oven! Wow! Iets meer hout was handig geweest, maar dat is dan ook alles. Eigenlijk willen wij helemaal niet zulke goede commentaren geven, want dan word het volgeboekt en/of duurder, en dat willen wij natuurlijk niet. Maar het is echt zo'n goed huis, dat we vonden toch onze bijdrage te moeten leveren.
Ik hoop dat wij hier nog een keer kunnen terugkomen. Vooral als onze dochter wat ouder is, zien we dat helemaal zitten! Heel veel groeten, Jaco, Katharina en Lotte

Deutsche Übersetzung des Feedbacks aus der vorherigen Villa in Umbria Website

2017: Hallo, wir hatten einen schönen Aufenthalt in Il Paradiso Assisi. Nachdem man Assisi (Höhe 300 m) passiert hat, fährt man etwa 8 km in die Berge (Höhe 700 m). Hier findet man dann ein eisernes Retro-Tor zu der großzügigen Villa mit allem Komfort. Herrlich hier mit guter Aussicht zu frühstücken. Wir konnten im Pizzaofen sogar selbst Pizza backen. Das Teigrezept bekamen wir gleich dazu. Oder wir haben das Schwimmbad mit der herrlichen Aussicht auf die Hügel genossen. MfG Josie und Marleen 2016: Hallo Saskia und Sylvia, vielen Dank für die herrlichen Ferien. Das Haus war sehr gut, charaktervoll, das Spielzeug, das Schwimmbad, alles o.K. und nur 15 min. von Assisi entfernt. Unten am Hügel liegt ein schönes und gutes Restaurant. Wir lieben das Leben draußen, besonders die prächtigen Schmetterlinge der Umgebung. Wir hatten wohl 4 Skorpione im Haus. Für uns war das kein Problem, für andere möglicherweis schon. Einen herzlichen Gruß an die Besitzer und nochmals ein Dankeschön für den schönen Urlaub. Herzliche Grüße Philip, England 2015: Hi Saskia und Sylvia, unser Urlaub in Umbrien war perfekt, die Villa erfüllte unsere Erwartungen komplett. Das Haus war schön kühl und frei von Mücken. Mit den Klappläden konnten wir tagsüber schön die Sonne draußen halten, abends öffneten wir die Fenster, um den kühlen Bergwind herein zu lassen. Die Fliegengitter vor allen Fenstern sorgten dafür, dass die Insekten draußen blieben. Im Haus war alles gut aufgeräumt und die versprochenen Handtücher lagen bereit und die Betten waren gemacht. Herrlich! Die Besitzer bescherten uns einen warmen Empfang. Der hübsche Garten ist gut gepflegt. Im Schwimmbad haben wir uns nach den warmen Sommertagen schön abgekühlt. In der Nähe des Wassers halten sich wohl recht viele Insekten auf. Gegen 18 Uhr verschwindet die Sonne hinter den Hügeln, sodass der Pool im Schatten liegt. Nach den warmen Sommertagen (38°C und mehr tagsüber) war das für uns sehr angenehm. Die Villa hat eine prima Lage, nicht zu weit von Assisi, dennoch herrlich in der Natur. Auch Perugia, Deruta, Gubbio sind von da aus leicht erreichbar. Mit anderen Worten ein herrlicher Urlaubsort in sehr schöner Landschaft, gutes Wetter, leckeres Essen, was will der Mensch mehr? Sehr empfehlenswert! Dankeschön für eure Hilfe und hoffentlich bis bald! Isabelle
