For three generations, Casale I Perugini has been owned by the same family, bought by Great-Grandpa as a country retreat in the 1950’s and becoming part of Italy’s rural tourism revolution in the ‘80’s. I Perugini now comprises eight apartments with the facilities, ambiance and service of a relaxing boutique hotel, all in the safe hands of great granddaughter Valentina who lives in one of the apartments with her partner Luca. Valentina is always on hand and happy to help, being the epitome of warm Umbrian hospitality and conviviality.
Originally a farmhouse, Casale I Perugini dates back to the 1800’s and is surrounded by ancient oak trees, tall pines and depending on the season, fields of corn, wheat and sunflowers - the classic Umbrian landscape. The rural setting is ideal for escaping the hectic pace of family life back home, with a typical Italian village just a mile away plus Lake Tresimeno with its beach areas, and the Umbrian capital of Perugia and its handy airport only around 20-25 minutes drive.
Hello I am Valentina, born and raised in Umbria and the owner of “Casale I Perugini”. This house, which was once a simple farm, I was handed down from my great-grandfather, who, in the 50’s, bought it as his country residence. In the early 80's my parents decided to turn the farmhouse into one of the first rustic accommodations, following a new trail that was slowly establishing in those years, that of rural tourism. My husband Luca and I live in one of the apartments of the Casale, so I will be present every day and I will look after all your needs. If you’ll be guests of Casale I Perugini you'll find out that my purpose is to ensure that you enjoy the taste of a real Italian holiday characterized by relaxation, conviviality and good food.

My wife and I fell in love with this place . At "I Perugini" we found a very cozy apartment, extremely kind hosts (Valentina and Caterina ? two sisters). Our son was delighted by the playground and the children entertainment. What I liked the most were the fabulous surroundings that helped us relax from our day-to-day stressful routine. Another thing I enjoyed were the activities for the guests, such as a guided visit to a ?sagra? (typical Italian feast with typical food) or the visit to a ?cantina? (winery). The house is also a very good base to visit other places in Umbria and Tuscany (if you don't want to just sit back and enjoy the swimming pool). Everything was clean and well organized. All in all a beautiful, relaxing stay. Would totally recommend.
