La Rondinaia is set on a hillside near the lively Umbrian town of Pietralunga, which is a 15 minute drive here are supermarkets, restaurants and cafes, one restaurant La Locanda del Borgo, features in the prestigious Gambero Rosso guide. It is also a great area for country walks. The house enjoys complete peace and quiet and beautiful views over the hills. It is not over-looked and is completely private. The bustling market town of Citta di Castello is a 20 minute drive and has many shops and restaurants plus a weekly market. The house is a beautifully restored old stone farmhouse with chestnut beams and terra-cotta floors throughout. The rooms are generous and beautifully furnished and comfortable.

The patio with its vine covered pergola looks over the well-maintained herb garden and steps lead down to the pool area with is paved all round and provided with large umbrellas and sun loungers. The views are wonderful. One double bedroom is downstairs with a bathroom adjacent. The other two bedrooms each with a bathroom are upstairs; one has a double bed and the other bedroom has 2 single beds. All the bathrooms have showers. Downstairs there is also a utility room with washing machine.

Why I don't take payment through this website:

I have been renting houses in the area of Italy in which I live for more than 25 years, using my own website at Gorgacce Rentals and many other listing websites such as Trpadvisor, etc. I have been renting on Owners Direct/HomeAway/VRBO/Homelidays/Arbitrel (all now owned by Expedia) since these websites existed. In 2016 they fell under the umbrella of Expedia and there have been big changes since. Although I still pay them handsomely to list all my houses on their website, they now also charge a "service fee" to all guests. For each booking paid for through their website they also take a 3% surcharge from my rental. In order for me to keep prices down I take my own payments; bank transfer, credit card or UK cheque to my UK registered company. Please feel free to phone me if you want to discuss this or any other matter related to the rental.

About Emma Cordingley

My family have been booking agents for many properties in the Tuscany and Umbria area for at least the past 25 years. My name is Emma and I live with my husband Martin and two daughters, our dog and our cat in the Niccone Valley, 30 minutes drive from La Rondinaia. We have a small rentals agency that was started by my parents in the 80s. We only have a small number of properties, we don't take on everything that is offered to us, all our properties have something that makes them special. We know all the houses we rent very well and the owners are all known to us personally.

Why Emma Cordingley chose Perugia area

If you want complete undisturbed peace and tranquility then this house is for you. The views of the countryside from this house are incredible. The house is spacious, well furnished and immaculately maintained.

What makes this villa unique

As booking agents who live nearby we want all our guests to enjoy their stay at La Rondinaia. You can book knowing that we are on hand to deal with problems that may arise during your stay, we are always available by phone, text, WhatsApp and by email. We have decided not to use Owners Direct online booking service so that we do not have to pass on their processing fee to our guests.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved La Rondinaia. It is such a special and beautiful house and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The quiet and solitude is incredible there.



We absolutely loved the house. It was in such a beautiful surrounding. Loved the pool area especially. Thank you so much for the lovely welcome gifts, we really enjoyed those. We shall certainly recommend your website, we were so happy with your service.



We will highly recommend Gorgacce Rentals, La Rondinaia, and La Laconda del Borgo! We had a wonderful time at the villa, none of us wanted it to end. La Rondinaia was gorgeous! We also enjoyed Pietralunga and La Lacondo del Borgo restaurant.

A lovely, relaxing stay in a quiet idyll.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week at La Rondinaia. The house is beautiful, large and spacious and very comfortable, the kitchen is amazingly well equipped and the gardens and pool are lovely. The caretakers left a welcome basket of goodies which was a really nice touch. But what sets this property apart is the setting. The views from the house and the garden are amazing and the photos don't really do the place justice. You really feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, you can't see any other houses or hear any noise, it's lovely. It does mean you are quite isolated, the nearest village is a 25 minute drive but there is everything you need there and if you don't plan on doing much then this place is a great place to relax and do nothing. I would certainly recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful holiday in a lovely house in the Italian hills.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our holiday here. The villa, pool and gardens are beautiful with stunning views in every direction. There are no close neighbours so our kids enjoyed making plenty of noise in the pool! The rooms are very spacious and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We were also very grateful for the welcome pack as we arrived on a national holiday.

Pietralunga is a short drive and has a decent supermarket, a bakery and some nice restaurants.

I can highly recommend and hope to return one day.

Ticked all the boxes for that perfect get away from it all holiday. The villa was very comfortable and well equipped. Outside space would be hard to beat the views where wonderful and the changing light made it magical. Would have no hesitation in recommending to friends and famy
