LAGOVISTA LOFT is located in the medieval hilltown of Paciano located on the border of Tuscany and Umbria. The loft space had never been occupied until 2011/2012 when we purchased it and renovated it from top to bottom including cleaning and renovating a stone wall over 800 years old!! We retained the charm while bringing all the amenties we appreciate today. Underfloor heating beneath the stone floor, a fabulous kitchen with all the amenities (chestnut custom cabinets, granite countertops, dishwasher, local ceramic dishes and serving pieces). We retained the open space with soaring ceilings, industrial fans, indirect lighting and a huge armadio dividing the space allowing some privacy in the bedroom. There is a separate laundry room with cabinetry and bathroom with glassed-in shower and all new fixtures and tile.. No expense has been spared - even double paned windows throughout. It was designed for a couple wanting privacy and luxury. It is adjacent to Casa Lagovista which is VRBO 417801 which allows two couples to travel together if they wish..
We've been travelling to Italy since l990 and fell in love with Paciano. We purchased Casa Lagovista in 2006 and totally renovated it and when Lagovista Loft became available we couldn't resist. Now both apartments occupy the whole top floor and have a private staircase, making it work wonderfully for two couples or a family. We are both real estate brokers living in Oklahoma City and consider Paciano our second home. We have rented all over Italy but never found a town as enchanting as this one and also one with all the services we wanted but no tour buses !

We had seen this property prior to buying the one next door but it was not for sale at that time. When we did see it that first time, we just looked at each other and knew that we could make it fabulous. We had forgotten about it until the former owner called us having heard that we loved and asked if we wanted to buy it. She had been planning on using it as a photography studio as it was completely unfinished but at the last minutes decided against it. Thankfully she called us first and we grabbed it up. When you see the photos, you will understand why
We think that when we saw the stone wall that was 800 years old and covered with bits of cement and lots and lots of dirt we could see what this space could be. Rather than conventional walls, the character that is inherent this space was facinating to us. When a friend of ours came in and said 'this wall tells a story of the history of the place' we knew we had done the right thing
Paciano is located on Mount Pausillo which is also a protected area and is great for hiking and even more strenous climbing if you are so inclined. There is the Lambrogini golf course a short distance away. Lake Trasimeno has boating facilities, beaches and restaurants lakeside. You can daytrip out to wineries, antique fairs, museums, ceramic towns and great historic towns like Assisi and Orvieto. Or go sip Brunellos in any of the local wine towns like Montalcino or Montepulciano. Pienze is another great stop for sampling the famous pecorino cheeses. The possibilities are endless!!
