La Casaccia is an old farmhouse lovingly restored and extended to create a comfortable family home. There are 4 double bedrooms, each with an en-suite shower room, a cosy living-room, a modern highly equipped kitchen, a large pantry, and a delightful dining room. On the outside La Casaccia is equally lovely. The house sits within an old olive grove of over 100 trees, with 360° views over gently rolling hills dotted with distant towns and farms, Lake Trasimeno and Monte Amiata, the tallest mountain in Tuscany to the South, and the foothills of the Appenines to the East. There are 2 dining terraces, one serving the main kitchen of the house, and a larger one just above the pool, supported by a separate fully-equipped bbq kitchen. There are various terraces for lounging, from a large "piazza" outside the bedrooms with comfortable sofas and armchairs, to a private porch at the end of the new wing, from a small terrace for stargazers outside the living room to a shaded area where you can sit and read quietly while keeping an eye on the kids playing in the pool. Sunlit all day long, the private 14x7 metre pool is surrounded by a large natural stone terrace furnished with comfortable sunbeds and umbrellas. A pool house with two day beds provides comfortable shelter for the drowsy as well as exercise equipment for the more active including a cross trainer, a stationary bike, resistance bands and yoga mats and straps. A toilet and outside shower completes the facilities at the pool. All this is secluded by the woods of this 22 hectare estate.

Why Carla Ciminera chose Passignano sul Trasimeno
We fell in love with the view the moment we saw it. The property had been put on the market the evening before and we bought it within 10 minutes of having arrived there. Real love at first sight.

Hidden gem in Umbrian hills
What a find and what an outstanding property. Carla made us feel so welcome in her beautiful home. She had gone to so much trouble to think of every last details, even baking us a loaf of bread for our arrival. I have rarely stayed somewhere so well equipped. Nothing was too much trouble for Carla, but her instructions about the property and the nearby attractions from villages to restaurants were more than helpful. The house itself was utterly stunning with amazing views, clean, comfortable beds and every last detail considered. I can not wait to return. Thank you for such a very special holiday and thank you for all your efforts.
Dear Susan, I am so glad you loved our home and felt welcome in it - that was entirely our intention! Do come back soon - we’ll be waiting for you!
