Nicely restored farmhouse with antique furnishings - beautiful setting in Umbria

  • 4 of 5

This property is a very authentically restored farm house. It is clean and well maintained. Our unit had two large bedrooms, each with a good sized bathroom and modern fixtures. There are lovely views of the countryside from the bedroom windows. During our visit at the end of May the grounds were covered with beautiful roses and other flowers. Giancarlo (the owner) knows the area very well and gave us good advice on local activities and restaurants. Towels, bedding, toilet paper and soap for the dishwasher, sink and washing machine were provided.

I want to stress that our experience was a good one. To be fair to others contemplating a visit, I will list some things to consider.

* If you require reliable internet connection, this is not the place for you. Internet is intermittent and not available in each unit but at a public spot in the garden.

* When we arrived on May 28, the pool was not open. If that is important to you, inquire before booking.

* We had a hiccup with the washer not working on day 1 of our visit but this was resolved by day 2. No clothes dryer except for Mother Nature's sunshine and a clothesline.

* Bring your own hairdryer.

Owner's Response: In the internet era people ,if they want to bring back pleasant,interesting memories,need more than ever good advices.A littel church in the country, a domed church mentioned in guides with a few words but a place were you could stay a long time watching the frescoed ceilings,the friendly baker , the antique market etc make the stay different,to be remembered.To be called by name and not just by the number of the room/apartment ,to talk about job , live , family,cuisine,politics is a way to get in touch with local life.

Lovely property with very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property and we have a wonderful stay. Whole place immaculate. Giancarlo could not have been more helpful listing suggested tours complete with a map and even helping us to arrange a hire car from the local Fiat garage which was great value. Beautiful clean pool and lovely location.

l'appartamento al Podere Pescia è ben posizionato per tutti i punti d'interesse in Umbria e Toscana

  • 5 of 5

Una vacanza non può essere perfetta se non vengono soddisfatte per prima le esigenze di logistica ed alloggio. Con l'appartamento a Podere Pescia è possibile raggiungere tale obbiettivo.

Ben posizionato per visitare molte località di interesse in Umbria (Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, ecc.) e Toscana (Montepulciano, Pienza, Val d'Orcia, Cortona, ecc.) nonché passare piacevole momenti su lago Trasimeno dopo il rientro dalle escursioni giornalieri.

Appartamento, ristrutturato con arredamenti d'epoca, accurato e molto pulito fa da benvenuto (welcome) a fine giornata dove è possibile rilassarsi a bordo piscina per gli ultimi istanti di sole.

Tutto ciò è reso possibile dal proprietario, Giancarlo Caponeri, sempre disponibile a qualsiasi necessità durante il soggiorno.

Un caloroso Grazie a Giancarlo ed Arrivederci a Podere Pescia.

Sehr schöne Anlage, sehr freundliche Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten die größte Ferienwohnung (Staropolska) Anfang September für 2 Wochen gemietet.

Die Anlage liegt nur wenige km außerhalb des Städtchens Castiglione del Lago (ca. 2km). Das vollständig umzäunte Grundstück ist sehr gepflegt angelegt und gestaltet. Dies gilt auch für die Poolanlage, die ausreichend Liegen, Sonnenschirme, Hollywoodschaukel und sonstiges Pool-Equipment bietet. Die Poolanlage wird regelmäßig gereinigt und kontrolliert. Es gibt einen großen Holzkohlegrill und genügend Parkplätze.

Zum Entspannen am Pool oder für Ausflüge in die Orte der weiteren Umgebung (z.B. Montepulciano, Siena, Cortona, Perrugia, Orvieto) ist die schöne Ferienanlage sehr gut geeignet.

Unser Vermieter Giancarlo (bewohnt mit seiner Frau Urszula, Kater Matteo und Dackel Nora ebenfalls die Anlage), hat uns schon im Vorfeld der Reise per Email mit vielen Informationen zur Umgebung versorgt und steht auch vor Ort jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Verfügung.

Giancarlo ist ein hilfsbereiter, netter Gastgeber mit vielen Tipps zu Kultur, Restaurants und Ausflügen. Er versorgte uns mit frischen Feigen, Weintrauben und Tomaten, sowie Wasser und Wein zur Begrüßung.

Das Appartement Staropolska ist groß und könnte mit 4 Personen bequem bewohnt werden ( 2 Schlafzimmer mit jeweils eigenem Bad). Die offene Wohnküche wie auch der Rest des Hauses sind sauber und liebevoll ausgestattet (teilweise mit Antiquitäten). Die Küche bietet die notwendige Ausstattung (Geschirr, Gläser, Besteck in ausreichender Menge). Es gibt eine Kaffeemaschine, eine Spülmaschine und einen kleinen elektrischen Backofen. Auf dem kleinen Sitzplatz hinter dem Haus (Zugang durch die Wohnküche) findet man am Morgen ein kühles Plätzchen.

Das Haus ist nicht klimatisiert, was aber nicht vermisst wurde. Die Temperaturen waren jederzeit gut zu ertragen. In allen Räumen stehen Ventilatoren zur Verfügung und die Fenster und Türen sind mit Fliegengittern ausgestattet.

Einziges Manko ist das avisierte WLAN. Die Verfügbarkeit ist, wenn überhaupt, an einer bestimmten Stelle des Grundstücks, wirklich nur mit durchschnittlicher Verbindungsqualität, gegeben. In den Appartements überhaupt nicht. Ein Repeater zur Leistungs- und Reichweitenerhöhung könnte hier sicherlich Abhilfe schaffen.

Wir haben uns bei Giancarlo und Urszula jederzeit sehr wohl gefühlt und können das Objekt wirklich empfehlen.

Schöne Unterkunft als Ausgangspunkt für die Erkundung der Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die größte Ferienwohnung für eine Woche Anfang August bei sehr hohen Außentemperaturen gemietet und uns jederzeit wohl gefühlt. Für das tägliche Entspannen am Pool, die nachmittäglichen Ausflüge in die Orte der weiteren Umgebung und erholsame Stunden ist die kleine Ferienanlage sehr gut geeignet. Giancarlo ist ein hilfsbereiter, netter Gastgeber mit vielen Tipps zu Kultur und Speisen im Umkreis. Gerne wieder !!!
