PODERE MOLINACCIO: A BEAUTIFUL STONE FARMHOUSE W/PRIVATE POOL+ PRIVATE GARDEN

Panicale Villa Rental Photos and Description

Podere w/pool +garden, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms + 2 convertible bed ( 2 persons)

Podere Molinaccio is a beautiful stone farmhouse only 2 km away from Panicale. The Villa offers its guests a breathtaking view over the Lake Trasimeno and the Panicale hills and is the ideal location for those who wish to enjoy total privacy.

A dignified and spacious farmhouse located in a spectacular, private and tranquil hillside setting just 4 minutes drive from the walls of Panicale. The property includes 3 acres of terraced olive groves while the famous little village itself, with its shops, restaurants and open air market can be reached in just 15 minutes on foot along a lane that passes through woods of oak and chestnut a stream and up past a magnificent Renaissance church on the outskirts of village. The property of course has its own fully private swimming pool with fabulous views.

The 17th century stone house has been carefully and beautifully restored with tiled floors, beamed ceilings and has been furnished with antique dealing furniture that make this villa a beautiful and comfortable location where elegance and modern comforts have been well mixed. In the large garden surrounding the house at full disposal of the guests there are some outdoor furniture: here you can enjoy delicious breakfasts and dinners while admiring the view of the valley. A few metres from the house lies the wonderful pool, set in panoramic position and surrounded by stone pavement and grass.

The ground floor of PODERE MOLINACCIO is the private apartment of the owners. They are very discrete and they are available to help the guests with anything they may need).

On the first floor of the Villa accesses through a separate and independent entrance with a wonderful and original stone staircase: (there are) 4 double bedrooms with 4 en-suite full bathrooms with shower, including a living room/dining room with an original open fireplace, a modern and efficient equipped kitchen. It sleep up to 8 + 2 people. Splendid views from all the windows. Each bedroom has a satellite tv and air conditioning. WI-FI Internet.

The main entrance opening onto the garden while there is a covered veranda facing west towards the sunset for shaded outdoor sitting and dining. There are also plenty of sunny locations in the garden and around the pool for enjoying the spectacular views of the local countryside.

The pool is 5x10 and is open from the 1st of June to the 30th of September 2013.

It is possible to organise meals prepared for you at home and also babysitting. For days out there is no lack of places to visit; Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia, Siena and Arezzo could keep you busy for a month and yet we believe that the temptation will be to stay here and enjoy 'PODERE MOLINACCIO' and its gardens and pool.

Private and tranquil hillside setting just 4 minutes drive from the walls of Panicale. The property includes 15 acres of terraced olive groves and by car Siena is 50 kms away, Florence 100 kms, Rome 190, Perugia 30, Arezzo 35 kms, Lake Trasimeno 7 kms.

I'm Katia and I'm the hostess of PODERE MOLINACCIO in Panicale. This is a beautiful Podere with private pool and garden and lovely view of Panicale and the rolling countrysides, located at only a step from the main Plaza of my charming medieval hill town, Panicale, just south of Lake Trasimeno. The owners asked me to be their host and help them with our guests. I am pleased to welcome guests from every part of the world, to introduce them to Umbrian village, and to share our traditions and culture. Panicale makes a great home base to visit other nearby hill towns, as well as to enjoy 'la dolce vita' right at PODERE MOLINACCIO, with its lovely garden and location. The locals in Panicale welcome visitors with a warmth and openness that will make you want to stay forever. The hustle and bustle of the high-tourist hill towns you visit are left behind you at the end of the day, when you return to the peacefulness of Panicale.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2012

Panicale is a typical and very beautiful medieval Umbrian hilltop town. Time has absolutely stood still in this village. One can still see signs of a former lifestyle -- cannon turrets, alcoves near the two historic center entrances where night watchmen once stood, ancient cobblestone streets and antique, operable water fountains. Panicale boasts four wonderful restaurants, two cafes (cafe/bar/gelateria), and three small grocery stores (2 inside the walled village) selling everything from fresh produce, wonderful salami & meats, cheeses and wine to toiletries and common household supplies. There is a terrific butcher who will gladly make fresh sausages for you while you wait. Just outside the walls, there is a bakery, where fresh bread, pastries, and a variety of delicious pizza/focaccia await you (open at 6am, for early risers!). The town barber will give you a hair cut and a shave, or if you want to catch up with the latest gossip, drop by the hairdresser. The famous 'little' theater, hosts well-publicized cultural events. however, the most fun can be found in the main plaza on weekend nights (summers) when free, live entertainment performs as you sip local wine or a cappuccino. Panicale also has a tourist information office, a real estate agency, pottery shop, linens and gift store, drug store, stationary/internet point selling foreign newspapers and magazines, post office, and a bank/ATM. Minutes away by car is a full service spa, where you can have a manicure, beauty treatment or massage. Panicale is home to 50 full-time residents. During the summer months this number grows to about 800. The town is within short driving distance to Perugia, Assisi (home of Saint Francis), Cortona, Todi, Deruta (reknown pottery/ceramics), Spello, and Siena. The nearby wine towns of Orvieto (stunning basilica!), Montepulciano

PODERE MOLINACCIO is a WONDERFUL PODERE with a beautiful private pool and garden. The quaint medieval hill town of Panicale makes a great 'home base' to explore both Umbria and eastern Tuscany. The village offers restaurants, shops, small grocery stores, butcher shop, bakery, bank with ATM, and many other amenities. Stroll with the locals through the cobblestone streets. Sip an espresso or a glass of great Umbrian wine outside one of the cafes. Take a step back in time, enjoy the amazing sunrises and sunsets, and simply RELAX! The locals are friendly and open. Moreover, a number of Panicalesi speak English, so language is never a barrier here! Inside the medieval walls, you will find very few cars, as the village is closed to vehicular traffic. Parking is always available outside the two main entrances (portals) to the walled town. Panicale is very centrally located: 90 minutes south by train is Rome, with Orvieto and other hill towns along the way. Just over 100 minutes north by train is Florence. By car, you can easily drive to Cortona, Perugia, Assisi, Deruta, Montefalco, and Montepulciano as well as the impressive nearby Casteglione del Lago fortress and Lake Trasimeno, with its unique islands and many sporting, dining and cultural activities. One visit to Panicale and you will want to return, as many guests do, year after year.

The most amazing week of my life!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Podere Molinaccio (1 & 2) with our families, 4 adults and 4 kids ages 3-14. The property is perfectly situated in the hills across from the beautiful village of Panicale. It is a perfect location for a home base while exploring the beauty of Umbria and Tuscany. We spent our days in the surrounding areas, whether walking through the hilly, picturesque streets of Panicale or taking the train from the easily accessible Chiusi into Florence, and our evenings cooking meals for our family in the well-equipped kitchen. We were ecstatic to see that the dining table fit us all perfectly! While we were too late in the season to enjoy the swimming pool, it was still beautiful enough out to grab a book to read poolside and enjoy just being on the well-kept grounds. Katia and Chiara were fantastic hosts. Katia even came down from the house to lead us back up on the first night since we got there well after dark. Chiara who lives on the ground floor of the Villa is a very discrete lady, not intrusive at all, but all the time available for any thing we needed.
And Katia is a fantastic host as well....always ready to reply to all our questions and full of information. When we arrived, we were greeted by a bottle of Chianti and a wonderful recommendation for local pizza. The house is huge and charming. We spent hours sitting outside drinking wine and letting our children play on the grounds. Our daughter keeps asking to go back to the "Italy House": I look forward to the day that I can say "ok!" This was truly the most memorable trip of our lives.

SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE BEDROOMS + SPLENDID VIEW FROM ALL THE WINDOWS!!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at beautiful PODERE MOLINACCIO and I am delighted to highly recommend this vacation rental property. The knowledgeable and experienced owners were a great resource for recommendations on top restaurants, wineries, and site seeing. The spacious bedrooms have all an in-suite bath and the beddings were oh so comfortable. All the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. It is evident that the owners take pride in keeping the property in immaculate condition. The entire property is exquisitely decorated in warm Umbrian/Tuscan style. The sunny kitchen is small but complete with dishes, utensils, pots and pans. I would like to keep their property a secret as I fear that I will never get to book here again once others find out what a wonderful, relaxing and incredible value this property affords. Most of all the owners, Chiara and Katia are warm, friendly and helpful. I will never forget my vacation of a lifetime at Podere Molinaccio!GRAZIE KATIA AND CHIARA

It Was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of our family visited in early July, and Podere Molinaccio was perfect! The grounds were peaceful and scenic, and the proximity to Panicale and other hill towns gave us a whole new world to explore and enjoy. The villa is well appointed and spotlessly clean, and Katia and Chiara couldn't have been more accommodating. They were available whenever we needed them, and they went out of their way to make it a memorable experience, especially for the kids. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation! We'll definitely recommend this FABOLOUS VILLA and the hospitality of Chiara and Katia.

The perfect place to celebrate our 50th anniversary

  • 5 of 5
In the Spring of 2014 my husband and I decided that we wanted to celebrate our 50th anniversary in Italy. We decided that Podere Molinaccio would be a perfect choice for us. As we drove up the lane to the villa we saw beautiful flowers and a groomed landscape. The villa was very clean and since there were five in our party the four bedrooms with four bathrooms were perfectly. It also had a Living/Dining and a well appointed modern kitchen with everything You need. ( dishwasher, electric oven, microwave, coffee machine, american coffee, toast maker...and more other!! )It was just a short drive to Panicale and many small other towns to explore and the view from the villa both during the day and night was spectacular. From all the windows FANTASTIC VIEW!! Katia and Chiara are fantastic Host, They would stop in frequently to make sure that we were having a wonderful time, they are such wonderful people. We would recommend the Villa to anyone that wants a wonderful holiday around the Lake Trasimeno, on the border with Tuscany.

The perfect Umbrian villa

  • 5 of 5
We looked at many villas before choosing Podere Molinaccio as the place to celebrate our 40th anniversary with all of our family. We could not have chosen a more perfect spot. The villa is very private, yet close to shopping and services in Castiglione del Lago. Panicale is only a few more minutes away. The grounds are beautifully lush with lavender, rosemary and olive trees and immaculately cared for. The house itself is in excellent shape; very clean and beautifully restored. It is tastefully and comfortably decorated. As all of the others have mentioned, Chiara and Katia were incredibly warm and helpful hosts. From helping us to arrange our rental car, arranging and serving a delicious first night dinner and providing all kinds of information, they were the best! Such lovely people and clearly so committed to making our vacation great. I would love to return and would recommend Podere Molinaccio highly. GRAZIE MILLE for all your kindness and friendly!

Thank you for a splendid holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Podere Molinaccio for a day over a week in the end of June 2014 with our family consisting of three generations - all together we were 11 persons: 6 adults, three teenagers and two small children aged 3 and 5.

From the very beginning we were very happy with all contact we had with the manager Katia before the holiday: she answered to all our questions very quickly and gave us a lot of valuable information about what the village and the surrounding area has to offer. When we arrived to Panicale from Rome with the cars, just a call and Katia came in 5 minutes to guide us to the house - where some sallad and snacks were waiting for us, how lovely is that! Katia´s mother also sent us some home made lasagne one evening and this was so nice and soooo good - the big dish was eaten to last bite in a blink!

Before our holiday we had read that the owner lives on the bottom floor of the house and we wondered how this would affect our stay. It turned out that Chiara was one of the absolute highlights of the holiday. Such a genuinly good hearted, sincere, modest and charming person who did everything she could to make our holiday so marvelous. Yet still if guests wish to have their own privacy, she really respects this. We really liked her company and sat with her around the dining table in the garden when ever we had the chance. Chiara also showed us an excellent winery near by and organised a private tasting there (Il Poggio - we really do recommend this!). Se also showed us amazing places that we couldn´t have ever eaven dreamed to experience, although this was not the first holiday in Italy or Umbria for us. Lorenzo was away working in another city for most of the week, so we didn´t get to know him this well, but he was very kind and nice also.
The house itself is very well restored, super clean well equipped - each room has its own bathroom, air conditioning, very handy mosquito curtains in the window, comfortable beds, linen etc.. Towels, hairdryers, soaps and detergents also includid, there really isn´t anything missing. The pictures in the web sites don´t really show all the beauty or give a good picture of the beautiful house and its picturesque surroundings. One simple improvement we would suggest would be to put the plan drawing of the house to the web sites.

Few words about Panicale - what a charming medieval jewel this small village is! And the restaurants, they are super, excellent food with outstanding views and atmosphere.
