About the property

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Il Poderetto is a delightful house, divided into two separate units that were once an old barn and still today retain and boast elements added on from the 18th until the beginning of the last century. Their complete renovation has maintained the authentic terracotta, stone, ceiling beams and oak flooring of that age, together with fine period furniture with pieces from the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, the historic character of the house is now enhanced by a large park with lots of green and a selection of English roses, a private parking area and pool and an exclusive wellness area with hydro-massage tub, Turkish bath and a well-equipped gym with professional equipment. So, the perfect location for you to enjoy your holiday in beautiful Umbria, land of art, pristine nature and good food made with genuine local products. We are just five minutes from the medieval borgo of Parrano, set in a strategic position on Roman-era remains and famous for the karst caves of the Tane del Diavolo (Devil's Dens) through which flow beneficial thermal waters. Just 10 minutes away are the A1 motorway exit and railway station of Fabro, an important hub with trains on the Rome-Florence line, an excellent departure point towards the best locations, not only of Umbria but also of Tuscany and southern Lazio. You can visit towns like Perugia, Orvieto, Todi and Assisi and admire their monuments, explore the narrow streets of little villages unchanged over time or enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the lakes Trasimeno and Bolsena or the hills of the Val d'Orcia. Also inside the property is the owners' house, very discreet people who will not interfere with the guests' stay and who have a separate entrance gate.


The house is divided into two separate units, a few metres away from each other and both with private entrance from the garden. The first consists of a kitchenette and double bedroom with living area, fireplace and en-suite bathroom with shower. The second, situated in a wing of the main house, consists of a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower.


The one-hectare park of Il Poderetto is a real gem, perfect for those who love nature but do not want to give up their creature comforts. It extends over three levels and is characterized by the brilliant green lawn and the large variety of plants growing in it. Starting from the small, 30-tree olive grove surrounding the wellness area with hydro-massage tub, professional gym, Turkish bath and bathroom with shower, you come to the delightful panoramic terrace that stretches out towards the woods. But it is the wonderful secret garden that is the little corner of paradise, adorned by flowering herbaceous perennials of all kinds like coneflowers, agapanthus, bluebells and exquisite English roses, including Falstaff and Golden Celebration roses. You will be able to organize romantic cocktails, lunches and dinners under the large pergola in the sunbathing area, equipped with outdoor kitchen with sink, small fridge, two-burner stove, dishwasher and built-in barbecue. Just past the entrance gate is a parking area with two covered parking spaces. Finally, from the house you can walk along a path that winds through the woods to the Spa Park of Parrano.

Swimming Pool

Set slightly lower than the house and reached along a gravel path and down a few steps, the pool is in a panoramic position, facing the woods and the landscape. Rectangular in shape, it measures 6 x 13 m with a constant depth of 1,30 m; lined in PVC, it has salt purification, internal lighting and can be heated. Entrance to the water is via Roman steps. Around the pool is a 500 sq m, completely flat, grassy sunbathing area which includes an area of about 90 sq m paved in stone with sunbeds and an outdoor cold-water shower, shaded by a pergola in reed matting, composed of a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen with a big table, armchairs and chaise lounge, just two metres from the pool. Steps next to the outdoor kitchen lead down to a changing room and a bathroom with a hot and cold-water shower. The pool is available from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday of October.

Il Poderetto is in a good central location, with respect to so many interesting places, where Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio meet: halfway between Lake Trasimeno and Lake Bolsena, halfway between Rome and Florence, close to Orvieto and not too far from Perugia, near the famous spa resorts of San Casciano dei Bagni and Chianciano Terme as well as historic villages like Civita di Bagnoregio, Città della Pieve, Montepulciano, Sarteano, Chiusi and Cetona. The villa has good transport links as it is just ten minutes from the Fabro exit of the Autostrada del Sole and from the Fabro-Ficulle railway station on the Rome-Florence line. After leaving the motorway or the train you'll find yourself immersed in an unspoiled landscape made of green hills and cultivated fields that will lead you to the picturesque historic town centre of Parrano with its majestic castle, reference point for al basic shops, while the supermarkets are located in Fabro Scalo.
