Villa w/ Private Pool & Walking Distance To Traditional Umbrian Hillside Village

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Aug-2015
Villa in Paciano, Perugia, Umbria, Italy - Secluded, Private Location Close To Enchanting Village

This beautifully restored stone country property lies in its own grounds, with well tended gardens and woodland. Though extremely private and secluded it is just a short distance from one of the prettiest villages in Italy. Reached by steps through a rose covered arch, the house has a paved courtyard, perfect for lazy late breakfasts, a lovely private swimming pool, and a vine covered gazebo with BBQ for al fresco summer dining. There are two comfortable living areas, one with French windows leading to the courtyard, and one for lounging. Cooks will love the well equipped stylish kitchen. The 3 comfortable double bedrooms each have en suite bathroom and terrace. Beautifully furnished in a mix of contemporary and traditional style, this is the perfect holiday choice for discerning guests and for exploration, Florence and Rome are within 2 hours by train, while Siena, Assisi, Cortona, Arezzo, Orvieto, Perugia and Lake Trasimeno are all nearby for day trips out.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We were a bit unceretain about booking this house as there were no previous reviews but you can rest assured that it is everything and more as described. It is difficult to say which is the better, the house or the garden, which is meticulously maintained and bursting with colour even in September. Both the garden and house are beautifully lit at night. The owners were delightful and were there to greet us on arrival with prosecco, cold cuts, cheese and grissini. The bedrooms are lovely, as are the bathrooms. The kitchen is a delight, with every imaginable pot, dish or glass you could want, an ice maker fridge and even a wine fridge. 7 coffee pots! The lounge is beautifully furnished and lit, and the TV room is great for lounging. Outside areas are delightful, from the comfortable seating and dining table area in the courtyard to the plant shaded BBQ area, to the sunshade loungers by the pool (with hot shower). Wonderful to sit on the upstairs patio with a glass of wine and admire and lake and sunsets. The local villages are picture postcards with plenty of restaurant choice nearby. Cortona Perugia, Orvieto, Siena and much more are close by but you dont need to go that far! We were there 3 weeks and never ran out of places to explore. We loved everything about this house and would thoroughly recommend it".
