About our home

6 Bedrooms, 8 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Casella is a splendid stone farmhouse situated in enchanting hills with extensive views of a broad valley and the glorious landscape of Tuscany and Umbria. The fenced garden surrounding the farmhouse and its annex, is abundant in olive trees and herb bushes and blends in perfectly combination with the delightful countryside. Set in the grounds sloping down from the house is the swimming pool, the annex, situated in front the pool close to the pool house. With ample and superior quality garden furniture, the pool also boasts a room equipped for cold buffet catering. It also has shower rooms, which are very convenient whist you are enjoying the outdoor life. The interior of the farmhouse is tastefully decorated, with great attention to detail. Casella is only a short distance from the picturesque village of Preggio, with a general store and “trattorie”, serving typical regional dishes. Casella is reached via a good gravel road of approximately 200 metres.
