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 Perugia area

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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

tranquil property in a great location with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and tidy on arrival and the local contact was very friendly and helpful. directions weren't easy to follow but Google maps saved us. A welcome pack of information in the cottage would be helpful.

The pool was a very nice addition and mostly we had it to ourselves.

Umbria is beautiful and has to be experienced, as does the fabulous monte vibianno winery with their amazing hospitality.
