Overview

About the property

Casa Padrone, Tuoro sul Trasimeno Umbria, Italy - Modern Luxury, Beautiful Peaceful Location, Stupendous View, Restaurant Within Walking Distance

Casa Padrone is a recently built property providing accommodation of a very high standard. The unbroken panoramic view of Lake Trasimeno - the 4th largest lake in Italy - is reason enough to make this a standout property. In addition to the view however is the attention to detail inside and outside with elegance, style and comfort in mind. The house is situated on a ridge overlooking Lake Trasimeno, the pretty lakeside town of Tuoro sul Trasimeno is a short drive. Within walking distance (1km) is a trattoria specializing in local dishes. Casa Padrone is a wonderful base from which to explore the towns, village and countryside of Tuscany and Umbria, with Florence, Rome and Siena within reach for day trips. Casa Padrone has Wifi and geothermic cooling system (similar to air-conditioning). Free wifi throughout.

(House cooling, pool and jacuzzi heating are optional extra charges, detailed at the end of this passage. I can't add them to the fees on this website as they don't have the format to put in optional weekly fees).

The house and its furnishings have a contemporary style. It is on 3 floors with the communal areas being on the middle floor. The front door opens onto this floor and from a hallway takes one into the large L-shaped open plan living space with large sitting room to one end with big windows to enjoy the view, satellite TV with some channels in English and DVD player. Between the sitting area and dining area is a fireplace built into the wall. The dining area enjoys the same views and at the end is the kitchen with door opening onto an outside terrace with outside dining furniture. The kitchen has American style fridge-freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine, walk in pantry and cooking island with 5 induction plates. There is a WC with basin on this floor. The master bedroom is on the upper floor with a french window opening onto a balcony with the wonderful lake views and en suite bathroom (no tub). On the lower (ground floor) are the 2nd and 3rd double bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms including bath tubs and showers. Also on this floor is the utility room with washer and dryer. The 4th bedroom (designed as a store-room) is not on a par with the other 3 bedrooms but can be used when required with one or two single beds, it is best used by children. The 4th bathroom is on this floor and intended for use while at the pool.

The garden is terraced with lawned areas and shrubs. There are 2 areas for outside dining provided with tables, chairs and umbrellas. The pool and jacuzzi are on the lower terrace of the garden and enjoy unbroken views of the lake. The pool is unusually large and deep for a private house making it suitable for diving, it has an infinity edge and is tiled. The jacuzzi is next to the pool and is also tiled. For the safety of children both jacuzzi and pool have hard covers that can be retracted at the press of a button. Heating for pool and/or jacuzzi are an extra cost. Pool heating is only available between May and September.

The grounds are fully fenced with electric gates opening for cars - guests are provided with the zapper. In addition the house and grounds are fitted with a security alarm.

Please note swimming pool and jacuzzi heating and air-conditioning are all optional extras and charged extra. We start pool heating 7 days before arrival so it is as warm as possible on arrival.

Pool heating £350/week Jacuzzi heating: £20/day AC: £14/day. All MUST be booked in advance of the stay. Do ask for details. I would suggest that generally air-con is preferable from Early July to mid-August. Pool heating from May to late June and from early September. free wifi .

Casa Padrone is rented exclusively by Gorgacce Rentals: renting houses since 1993.

About Martin and Emma Daykin

I am the booking agent for Casa Padrone, my name is Emma and I live nearby in the Niccone Valley, with my husband, Martin, two daughters and our cat and dog. We run a small rentals agency called Gorgacce Rentals, named after the first house my parents owned here which they bought in the 1980's. In those days before the internet they were very successful at renting their house to holiday-makers and their neighbours asked if they could rent their houses too and from this grew our rentals agency. Seeking a better life Martin and I (with our then one year old daughter, Isabel,) moved here in 1999 and have taken over most of the running of the rental business although my mum still keeps the accounts! Martin runs regular wine tastings at the vineyard in the valley. He is also a keen walker and often takes people on guided walks and he has written a book of local walks available as an e-book called "Circular Walks on the Tuscany Umbria Border".

Why Martin and Emma Daykin chose Cortona area

Casa Padrone is a quite fantastic property. It has the most magnificent position with unbroken lake views and inside is spacious and furnished and equipped to a luxury standard. The most attractive infinity pool with the fabulous views and a jacuzzi! There are 2 restaurants within walking distance and the small town of Tuoro is only a short drive away.

As booking agents who live nearby we want all our guests to enjoy their stay at Casa Padrone. 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.

What makes this villa unique

We invite all our guests to a wine tasting evening at the local vineyard. This is a regular event run by by husband Martin Daykin who passed his Italian Sommeliers Association exams in January 2016.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time, the house is extremely comfortable and the view breathtaking. So well positioned and the restaurant suggestions excellent. by G.B.



We enjoyed the stay very much, the house was just wonderful and everything worked very well during our stay.

We visited some lovely medieval towns in Tuscany and Umbria, but we did not visit Assisi and Perugia this time, so we'll be back - maybe next summer. Erika



The house is fantastic!! We loved it and had a great time, notwithstanding changeable weather. Paul



Very nice house and great location, we loved the infinity pool and the views. P.D.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Casa Padrone, the house is extremely comfortable, well-equipped and the view breathtaking. It is so well positioned. The restaurant suggestions in the information folder were excellent and Oscar the caretaker was really helpful.

Wow! Incredible views and a sumptuous house

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing not to like about Casa Padrone. It's impossible not to be overwhelmed by the views, not to rave about the bedrooms and bathrooms. It is spacious, modern, clean and well-looked after, everything worked perfectly. The pool is enormous but even in May it was warm (we had paid for heating). We all felt so privileged to stay here. We had excellent help from Emma and from Oscar before and during our stay.

A dream house and location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Padrone is stunning. Swimming in the pool looking out over Lake Trasimeno is an incredible experience and a fabulous memory for us all. If you can tear yourself from the view then inside the house is pretty amazing too. Lovely bathrooms, great modern interior. We absolutely loved staying at this house and I highly recommend it.

Perfect View and Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

The impression that you gain of Villa Padrone ( and it's many other names !! ) from the website is exactly what you find on arrival. If anything the views are even better and can be seen from everywhere in the villa and not just the highest point ,as in some villas !!

We enjoyed a wonderful week with friends and definitely would consider returning again.

Although it takes 5 minutes to reach the main road the villa is well placed to visit Assisi and Siena for day trips. A trip on the ferry across the lake to the island and lunch there are not to be missed if you want a relaxing day.

The property is beautifully presented and we had no problems although the number of light switches caused constant amusement,particularly after a a few glasses of wine at the end of the evening.

It didn't prove a problem , but it could be made clearer in the pre booking details that aircon,the heating of the pool and jacuzzi are extras and need to be ordered in advance.

Our favourite nearby restaurant was Morgan's in Passignano. You will also pass the nearest big supermarket on the way there as you leave Tuoro.

Hope you enjoy your time there, as we did.

Owner's Response: Hi Graham, thanks for your review of Casa Padrone, it is kind of you to take the time. I have taken action on the point you made about understanding the prior payments for air-con, pool heating etc and it is now mentioned 3 times on my Owners Direct ad: In the written description, in Facilities and in Prices. Owners Direct provide owners with a form with various sections to complete when we compose adverts. Owners Direct then present that information in their chosen format so something we thought we had high-lighted gets buried, I hope that I have now made that information clear which was always my intention.

A beautiful villa with amazing views and location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Padrone is beautiful. The views from the villa and bedrooms and balconies and the infinity pool area are amazing and ever changing. The villa is modern, well designed and spacious. All 3 main bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms are great. There also is a smaller fourth bedroom which our 2 youngest shared. The living floor is spacious and modern. The kitchen is well equipped. Some of the equipment in the kitchen, and elsewhere, are modern and high tech - and may take a bit of getting used to. Emma and Martin were very helpful as was Oscar who came to show us how everything worked on the first morning.

The villa is located 1km or so down a forest track which contributes to the peaceful and quiet atmosphere.

Casa Padrone

  • 5 of 5

Title: Great house, great views.

We had a wonderful holiday staying at Casa Padrone and because the house and views were top notch, we probably visited fewer places than I'd planned beforehand. The house is without doubt the nicest one we've rented in the Tuscany/Umbria area and the views are stunning. We will definitely be in touch about renting again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review of Casa Padrone. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, we take a lot of pride in making sure the house is as well- presented as possible. We look forward to you staying again with a returning guest discount. Emma
