About the property

Umbria villa and apartment

This is a 4 bedroom villa and a 2 bedroom apartment, both located in the village of Paciano in Umbria, Italy.

The 4 bedroom villa is surrounded by olive groves and and nestled on the Umbria and Tuscany border. Originally dating back to the nineteenth century, the property has been lovingly restored by the owners to an extremely high standard and furnished with pieces collected on their travels around the globe as well as family treasures. Inside, the farmhouse property measures approximately 300 square metres and has four spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. There are also relaxing living spaces, a library with a plentiful array of books, a separate dining room and a well equipped kitchen. Outside there is a spacious private garden measuring 4000 square metres, planted with numerous fruit and olive trees, grasses and herbs which fill the air with their delightful aroma. Guests are welcome to help themselves from the fruit and vegetables when in season. Rows of lavender line the path leading to the eco infinity swimming pool. Guests are treated to stunning views in all directions and the sunsets over the pool are truly magical. The terrace is also cleverly positioned so that guests sitting here will be treated to stunning views of the sunset each evening. There is a BBQ for those who like to cook outdoors, whilst there is also covered loggia providing the perfect setting for a dinner al fresco.

The 2 bedroom apartment is one of 5 apartments in a recently restored farmhouse. Inside, the property is a clever fusion of both contemporary and traditional design. The result is a style of simple elegance. The owners have taken care to retain the original features of the farmhouse whilst bringing it up to the 21st century to meet modern holidaymakers needs. Guests enter the property into a lovely living area with adjacent dining and well equipped kitchen area. Moving upstairs, there is a bedroom with comfortable double bed along as well an additional bed cleverly arranged on a wide ledge area. There is also an adjacent twin bedroom and bathroom. The property has tiled floors throughout. Fans are also provided in all rooms. The property is surrounded by 2 hectares of land and guests enjoy use of a lovely eco infinity swimming pool (12 x 5 metres). The apartment is one of 5 apartments within the building but it has it's own private terrace with table and chairs, ideal for al fresco dining. Doors lead to the terrace from the living area.

Both properties are ideally located within walking distance of the village of Paciano which boasts 3 excellent restaurants, a village shop, book store and pharmacy. It is also just 30 minutes from Cortona, 15 minutes from Lake Trasimeno, 50 minutes from Montalcino and Pienza and just 80 minutes from Florence and 2 hours from Rome.

In fact, it is ideally located for exploring both Tuscany and Umbria. Less than an hours drive from the apartment, you can be in Assisi, Perugia, Siena, Deruta, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Pienza, Cortona, Montefalco or Chiusi, all well worth exploring during your stay. The latter is just a 15 minute drive away and from here, you can take a one hour train ride to the centre of both Rome and Florence. Trains leave each morning and return in the evening providing an extremely convenient and relaxing way to visit these major cities without having the stress of navigating each cities narrow streets and heavy traffic by car.

About Jo Mackay

I am a mother with 2 children, age 9 & 12 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 9 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy through my website - I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.

Why Jo Mackay chose Paciano

This really is an absolutely stunning property, set in the most idyllic location. The property is full of character with plenty of original features but has all the mod cons you would expect and hope for.

What makes this apartment unique

It's great to be in such a peaceful location but to be within walking distance of a village. And what a great little village it is...! Paciano is widely considered to be one of the top 10 villages in Italy for its idyllic setting and quality of life.

Poor organisation nil stars

  • 1 of 5

On being told that the apartment was available for our August dates we understandably went ahead and booked flight for the family who were arriving via different airports. We rented a car for the duration of our stay. Later that day we received a call to say the apartment was not available after all. Sorry simply isn't enough. It is a basic expectation that the manager should thoroughly check bookings before accepting a new one. Really poor organisation and totally unimpressive.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that we were unable to accept your booking request due to already being fully booked. We would have been very happy to suggest some alternatives and I am sorry that we didn't get the chance to suggest some other properties that might have worked for your family. I hope that you have now found suitable accommodation for your stay and enjoy your trip to Italy.
