La Torretta - a charming 2 bed villa within easy reach of Perugia and Assisi

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,291 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2-Bed, 2-Bath villa set in half an acre of garden, with private pool and beautiful views to the village and the hills

Neatly perched on a south-facing hillside, La Torretta overlooks the beautiful village of Papiano and the Tiber Valley beyond. With undisturbed views, the sound of the village bell tower in the distance and gazing across the lush green countryside, this is a very special place to spend your precious holiday time. The location is perfect and within 45 minutes of the villa, most of Umbria’s best well known attractions can be experienced - or why not sample true Umbrian village life here? A five minute walk will take you directly into the village piazza, with its cafe bar, supermarket & post office. The house has been carefully designed and built in the style of a renaissance tower with two adjoining wings. The two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen/dining room and sitting room have all been finished to a very high standard using local artisans to create the grills, handrails and make all the chestnut wooden doors and shutters.

Why Graham Lane chose Perugia area

This property is owned by John and Janet Compton who live on the South Coast of England. They have been visiting Italy, and in particular Umbria, for 15 years, and love the people, the countryside and the food and wine! They purchased La Torretta in 2012, and having found their dream spot in Umbria, now wish to share their enjoyment of this special place with others. They hope that you will enjoy La Torretta...and tell your friends!

What makes this villa unique

Close to the village, yet not in the thick of it. Close to the major sights, yet off the busy roads. Peaceful, yet only a short drive from the things you need. This is a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday!

Heel prettig, praktisch en gezellig ingericht, schoon en een schitterend uitzicht op Papiano en dal.

  • 5 of 5

We hebben ons zeer welkom gevoeld met een ruim ontvangst pakket met eerste benodigdheden. Aan alles was gedacht en er was ruim informatie. De locatie en de privacy overtrof onze verwachtingen. Het uitzicht is verslavend; uitstekend om tot rust te komen of te mijmeren. We gaan niet snel naar een zelfde plek maar deze wordt een uitzondering. Zeer centraal in Umbrie gelegen en ideale start om Perugia, Todi en de talloze mooie plaatsjes te bezoeken, het landelijke deel met kleine dorpjes te ontdekken en prachtige (avond)wandelingen te maken. Het zwembad is heerlijk en beschut. Verder zeer genoten van de vele vogels, de schitterende oleanderhaag, de geurende jasmijn en de bloeiende lavendel. Tenslotte de absolute stilte op de krekels, het gefluit van de vogels en de kerkklok na. Prijs - kwaliteit is absoluut zeer goed en helemaal met 4 personen. Wij hebben genoten.

IMPORTANT NOTE: we are currently in the final stages of planning to build a lovely pool over the winter, to be ready for March 2016 (but not open to guests until June 2016). If for any reason this is not possible (delays, planning etc) then we will let you know at the earliest opportunity. The rate will be reduced to the standard non-pool week rate (i.e. to £600) and we will pay for the use of a pool at Le Cerquelle about 2 miles away. We understand that this may make it difficult for you to choose us during this time. We should be able to confirm that the project is under way by November 2015.

Changeover Day:
Changover day is normally on Saturday - Arrival after 15:00, depart 10:00 - although other days may be possible in low season only - please enquire at the time of booking.

Notes on prices:
Prices are advertised in £Sterling and can be confirmed and converted into other currencies on request.

The pool is available in June, July, August and September.
