Overview

About the property

Many Centuries Old Completely Renovated 'Castello Di Gaiche', In The Green Heart Of Italy

We love to let our wonderful holiday house in Umbria. Approx. 20km from Tuscany. Our cottage is part of a 13th century castle complex (Castello di Gaiche), fully renovated and restored to its original style. The castle lies on top of a hill with incredible views. The cottage is surrounded by a large garden with various seating areas, olive trees and lavender bushes. The swimming pool of approximately 7x15m is a 300m walk from the castle which guarantees the much appreciated silence at the castle and garden. The pool is only available for guests of the Castello. The surrounding area with Lago Trasimeno (Trasimeno Lake) counts many picturesque villages like Panicale, Citta della Pieve and Piegaro with fine restaurants. The famous cities of Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto and Montefalco are all less than 1 hour drive. Montepulciano, Siena, Florence and Rome are within driving distance (approx 1.5 - 2h). Nearby airports: Perugia (from London Stansted), Pisa, Florence and Rome (Ciampino and Fiumicino)

About Rolf van den Breemer

We are Rolf and Anna from the Netherlands and we love to let our beautiful castle cottage in Umbria, Italy.

Rolf van den Breemer purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Rolf van den Breemer chose Piegaro

Castello di Gaiche really is an amazing, romantic and beautiful place. It is easy to stay around the castle for days and enjoy the garden, the walks around it, the castle itself, the medieval church next to it, the swimming pool. The area provides many very picturesque villages where time is standing still: Panicale, Piegaro, Citta della Pieve. Umbria has a wonderful landscape and there is only a few tourists.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is a two-storey cottage, part of the Old Mill of Castello di Gaiche.

Loved our stay...

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our fab holiday. Lovely little cottage set in the most beautiful surroundings. At the top of a very winding road, with great views. We met a few of the other residents in the privately owned apartments in both the main building and the cottage next to this one and they were all lovely and full of useful tips about the area! A great pool not too far from the cottage, we pretty much had it to ourselves! There are some local walks up into the hillside which my Husband enjoyed, whilst I sat and enjoyed the peace and quiet in the garden! The site is very well maintained with Francesco not too far away if you need anything. The cottage itself was equipped with just about everything you need and the washing machine is located down by the pool if needed. You will definitely need a car, we did a lot of travelling around. The region and it's towns are just beautiful. Communication with Rolf both when making the initial booking and in the run up to the holiday was excellent. Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful what more can I say. Loved it and would highly recommend. Thank you Rolf.

Wonderful location for peaceful & relaxed holiday

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location for exploring Umbria. The property is rustically furnished and in keeping with what is a medieval castle on a hill top! Driving is a must as most places are at least 30 minutes away, but what fabulous places, Assisi, Perugia, Spelloo, Panicale and loads more.

Very pretty but quite isolated

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little cottage in a picturesque setting. Lovely large pool (although with a large wasps nest nearby that could do to be removed!). Beautiful gardens and grounds and spectacular views. The cottage stayed very cool inside, even during the hottest part of the day. We had to be careful not to use more than one to two appliances at a time or the electricity would go off, but once we had worked this out this was not too inconvenient. The location is quite isolated, with little interruptions or noise. The nearest shop is around 15 minutes drive away. A lovely place if you're looking for a quiet escape!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very pretty and very well equipped. The gardens and pool are brilliant for relaxation and the views are breathtaking. We had a fantastic week with two children (10 and 6) on their first holiday abroad, and they had a brilliant time. Couldn't get a reception on the TV, but preferred to be out in the garden or on the terrace playing games anyway. Thanks for a brilliant place to stay!

Loved every minute of our stay here.

Beautiful little cottage up in the hills with stunning views. It has all the basics needed to explore the umbrian region.

We had a fabulous holiday and we're very sad to leave. Would definitely return.
