Overview

About the property

Villa in Preggio, Nr. Umbertide, Umbria, Italy - Private And Peaceful But Only 7 Minutes Drive To Local Village Preggio. Wonderful part of Umbria.

Superb and very LARGE Villa in fact huge, close to the picturesque small hilltop town of Preggio. Villa Tamburi is a fantastic and extremely spacious and very private villa within GATED (so very safe) grounds and with excellent views of the spectacular Umbrian countryside. This property has the most amazing OUTDOOR POOL which looks as though it is straight out of a James Bond movie including waterfalls and jacuzzi but also has a separate area for the kids to splash around in. However, there is also plenty of space to do some real swimming. The property does not only have a fantastic outdoor pool but also has a lovely INDOOR POOL which may be heated in the colder months of the year and during the summer months provides an extra pool or just a wonderful part of the house to enjoy and relax in.

The villa is extremely spacious with large open plan ground floor dining area with very large wooden table, TV area as well as separate sitting area in front of the Log fire. Large French windows lead out to a portico for outdoor dining as well as into the lovely and predominatly flat gardens.

Also on the ground floor is the newly upgraded and well equipped kitchen which also has large doors leading onto the portico for AL FRESCO DINING and into the gardens. There are two further indoor dining areas over the two floors, below as well as a an outdoor BBQ area with PIZZA/BREAD OVEN next to the pool, ideal for those summer evenings outdoor.

The grounds of the property are predominantly flat and grassy with plants and shrubs as well as olive trees so are also ideal also for younger children. The villa is in total 650 square meters large (huge) with a total of 6 bedrooms some of which have either a private balcony or terrace and 7 bathrooms (plus further showers and toilets next to the indoor pool).

On the top floor of the Villa is a SEPARATE APARTMENT with sitting room, open fireplace, fantastic large terraces to both front and back of the property, master bedroom, dressing area, bathroom and small kitchen. Space in this property will not be a problem with plenty of space to spend time with family and friends but also enough space to be apart and relax or for the adults to have an area to relax in away from the younger members of your party.

Being just a short distance away from the small town of Preggio which holds a couple of music festivals over the summer months is an added bonus to this fantastic property.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Tamburi is a very large property built to very generous proportions and therefore giving plenty of space to spend time together or apart depending on your requirements. The truly spectacular outdoor pool is like something out of a James Bond movie with waterfalls etc. and the separate kids area is superb for any little ones. The indoor pool, which may be heated in the colder months or just enjoyed as an additional area is an added bonus not to be found in many other properties.

The separate apartment situated on the top floor and comprising of sitting area with log fire, terraces both to the back and front of the villa, master bedroom, bathroom, dressing area and small kitchen is ideal for anyone wanting to be with the rest of the group yet also private at times.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most wonderful stay! The Villa was so much fun with the slightly crazy pool which the kids just loved and we had a couple of little ones so the separate kids area was just perfect. So much space with the main, ground floor being huge and then leading outside, so ideal. And my mum and dad loved the fact that there was a separate apartment on the top level where they could get away for parts of the day from the general mayhem on the lower levels. We had never been to this part of Italy before and just loved how varied and exceptionally beautiful this area is, and being on the border of Umbria and Tuscany was just perfect. An ideal holiday for several generations spending time together! Alison Hill from Windsor.

Lovely place with huge gardens

  • 5 of 5

We had a holiday of the decade at the lovely Villa Tamburi. The setting is typical Umbrian/Tuscan and the property iitself was lovely. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Previous is the nearest town and is absolutely wonderful and so authentic. Castle Rigone and Umbertide with all the necessary amenities with supermarkets etc were not too far away. Cortona, Citta do Castello, Rigione and Umbertide were all 25 minutes away, very beautiful and with great restaurants and bars with shops and evening entertainment plus more morning markets. We loved the fact that we could relax by the huge pool during the day, the kids absolutely loved the slight madness of it, fact that the grounds are mainly flat and the pizza oven right next to the pool. Fantastic.
