1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Everything was memorable! I think the best part for us was also the simplest - sitting on the terrace in the sun, whenever we could, just looking at and drinking in the stunning view and feel of Italian rolling hills! These hills we classes as being all ours for seven whole lovely days, as there wasn't another soul around for miles!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Car hire is essential as the apartment is beautifully and wonderfully remote! However, having said that my advice would be to stay local and not drive too far a field! You don't need to do so, as pure beauty is right where you are! My friend I was with, was on crutches and in a wheelchair, due to a broken foot from before we travelled! This meant our planned trips to Pisa etc all went in the bin, for practical reasons of her getting around. Yet, we both said that we were glad, as so often on holidays you spend all your time driving from one tourist spot to another. We didn't see one other tourist all week, which was so refreshing. We visited our nearest local towns and celebrated being in them. Urbania is lovely and obviously you must visit the famous walled town of Urbino! However, just driving randomly down the road revealed stunning hill top towns and little villages that are the real Italy just waiting to be enjoyed! Truly magical! Guilia and her parents were wonderful hosts. We really recommend taking up their offer of a home cooked five course Italian meal one night during your stay, as it was obviously delicious, but also was such an authentically Italian joyful experience. Thank you Guilia!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, absolutely! Guilia runs a farm and her produce is used by some of the local providers of food and drink. I wouldn't imagine there was much, if any, negative environmental impact from our stay. We ate locally in the restaurants and used local small shops, such as a little local Art Gallery Shop with lovely gifts.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I can sum this up in one sentence - my friend and I both cried on the night before we had to leave; one of my best holidays ever!
