A great break for the family in Casamaggiore.
My wife and I stayed at the house with my parents and our 10 week old son.
The owners were helpful in advance, full of tips and hints on how to get there and where else to explore in Italy; we took their advice and spent a few days in Rome before which was a real treat. The house itself is less than two hours from Rome, in a very small village with few amenities nearby – the essentials are at hand though, including ice-cream and coffee parlours!
Nearby villages and the Trasimeno Lake offer plenty of local culinary delicacies, wines and amazing views. Short day trips out from the house include Rome, Florence, Assisi and other areas of Umbria – the rolling hills are a perfect setting to relax and unwind amongst.
The house itself is over three storeys, with ample space across three bedrooms, with a large living area and fully equipped kitchen. Another big draw is the private outdoor pool, offering great views and a BBQ area nearby it was a great location for the family to relax around.
We had an amazing time in all and have high hopes of returning to the house in the future. It was a fantastic chance for our family to bond and welcome our newest member before I spend a considerable amount of time away from home. This opportunity wouldn’t have been possible without the vigour and selflessness of both the Give Us Time staff in finding donors and of course the kind-hearted souls who make it all possible. Give Us Time is a fantastic organisation who facilitate military families having time to re-connect and hopefully they prosper into the future to help others enjoy the same benefits that we did.
