Farmhouse With Lovely Views, Mature Garden And Private Pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 25-Jul-2016
Farmhouse in Pian di Marte, Perugia, Umbria, Italy - Peaceful Rural Location, Within 15 Minutes Drive To Lake Trasimeno

Col di Marte is an old 4 bedroom stone farmhouse located on a hillside with fabulous views over the countryside between Lisciano Niccone and Castel Rigone. It is about equidistant between Perugia and Cortona (both about 40 minutes away), and just north of Lake Trasimeno, close to Passignano. Florence is an hour and half to the north west and Siena about an hour to the west. The house is of traditional design, but it was renovated in 2013 and has a light airy feel. It has a completely new stylish kitchen and bathrooms, designed with traditional Umbrian materials very much in mind. What was the old tobacco barn has now a lovely covered terrace accessible from both the garden and one of the bedrooms with beautiful views over the valley. The house is surrounded by mature gardens, about 1 acre, with a range of trees and shrubs including 60 olive trees, and which has a private pool, also with wide valley views.

About the Owner

Three of us - David, Jane and Liz, all from the UK - bought Col di Marte in early 2013. David and Jane had rented many properties in France and Italy over the years.

With older children and now a grandchild, we looked to buy in many different areas but this part of Umbria is just lovely, mostly very fine weather but still very green. Col di Marte's location was just perfect: rural, beautiful views, a lovely garden with a pool but still pretty easily accessible.

We hope to spend much more time in Italy with our families in the future and to learn the language properly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From July 2014:

This is a wonderful house, set in an unspoilt and picturesque area. Beautifully renovated, the house is very comfortable and well equipped. There are great views of the surrounding countryside from the house and the pool area and many lovely hilltop villages to explore. The house is spacious, well maintained and the very helpful owners quick to respond to any queries.

A perfect Umbrian farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully refurbished farmhouse in a peaceful location off the beaten track. The house was perfect for two families with four bedrooms and three smart bathrooms. The kitchen is really well equipped and the option of eating inside or outside was ideal. The pool area was great with amazing views over the countryside.

A perfect base for walking, exploring Lake Trasimeno and the nearby medieval towns such as Perugia and Siena (a bit further afield) or just relaxing in the sun.

Pian di Marte

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house, set in an unspoilt and picturesque area. Beautifully renovated, the house is very comfortable and well equipped. There are great views of the surrounding countryside from the house and the pool area and many lovely hilltop villages to explore. The house is spacious, well maintained and the very helpful owners quick to respond to any queries. The gardens are pretty and peaceful and the pool just perfect. A lovely holiday spot for those who enjoy luxury in a rural setting. If you can bear to tear yourself away, visits to Perugia, Assisi and Siena are all possible and the lakeside town of Passignano sul Trasimeno has a choice of good restaurants and a delightful ferry trip to the island. Food and wine in the area are great, locals very friendly. Highly recommended!
