La Serena is owned and managed by Derek & Stephanie Mather. After 30 years experience in the IT industry and commercial and business life, we decided to embrace the 21st century with a totally new way of life. With 3 children all grown up , the opportunity to do something completely different was all too attractive.
So, after an extensive search, we fell in love with Umbria, it's people and the way of life. We found a building 'shell' and proceeded on the journey that has brought us to the realisation that is La Serena.
You will be warmly welcomed by your hosts Derek & Steph who will help you enjoy your holiday, providing you with a choice of itineraries to follow, with optionsl extras such as, escorted walking and driving tours, accompanied local food & wine tours, outings to local festivals, help with Italian language and making arrangements e.g. restaurant bookings.
Derek is a gourmet standard chef, so for that special meal, Derek and Steph can prepare a 3-course dinner, prepared in the kitchen at La Serena and served for you in the spacious dining room or on the sun terrace. Look at the Services page for details of those special extras that will complete your holiday.
