About our home

*** Please note that the house is rented all summer, and so not available for swaps! ****
4 bedroom villa, artistically restored, with original Italian period features & modern amenities. Beautiful private pool set in private landscaped gardens- breathtaking views all over the hills and the valley. All amenities are 4 km away & you are close to Perugia, Assisi, Florence, Gubbio, Sienna etc

4 bedrooms, comprising two doubles with ensuite bathrooms, one normal double and one twin. There is one additional large family bathroom in travertine marble with bath/shower. Two of the bedrooms have walk in wardrobes.

Very well equipped kitchen so that keen cooks can make the most of the local produce. It has an oven, dishwasher, hobs, kettle, fridge, freezer, Nespresso machine, Magimix etc. There will be basic food bits and bobs (oils, vinegars, herbs, spices, sugar etc).

The large swimming pool is open in the summer months and the lovely garden has many different areas for enjoying the sun or shade. At night you can turn off all the lights and enjoy the vast expanse of starry skies. There are several different terraces, two of which have dining tables so you can choose where to have your meals. There's a large BBQ too.
Private parking space right next to the house.

We also are well equipped for babies, with two cots, a high chair, changing mat etc. There is TV (but no TV service at the moment) and a DVD player, or bring your cables and plug in an ipad etc. There is also WIFI but we ask that you don't use it to download films etc as it is streamed via a satellite, which also means it's a bit at the mercy of the weather. There's a stereo system and CD player which you can also play your Ipod through.

It's the perfect base for exploring both regions, with Assisi, Perugia, Florence, Gubbio, Arezzo and many other towns all in easy reach. All amenities can be found in our local town, a thriving commercial place with an historic centre, just 4km away.

More about us

  1. We're a couple with a 3 year old boy who love to travel

  2. In particular, we are looking for a swap over Christmas and New Year at the end of 2020. USA, Hawaii, Oz, NZ, South Africa, Mexico- or anywhere really!

  3. We love travel, but think staying in a home rather than a hotel really helps you get under the skin of a place

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The views, the food, the people, the weather- life is truly beautiful in the Italian countryside. If you can manage to tear yourselves away from the house, garden and pool then we are ideally situated to enjoy the traditions and delights of both Tuscany and Umbria. There are the unrivalled treasures of Perugia, Florence, Assisi, Sienna, Gubbio etc. or you could watch the hustle and bustle of market days in one of our more local towns, while enjoying a cappuccino in one of the many cafes. For the more active, there are the beaches and boats of Lake Trasimeno, you could canoe on the River Tiber, or head off for a walk in the surrounding hills.

Perugia is the nearest airport- a 25 min drive away. Otherwise, Bologna, Ancona, Rome and Pisa are all around 2 hours away. There are several main train stations within 30-45 min and a small local one 15 minutes away.
