About Bruno

My family purchased this villa in 1976

We have all been coming here for holidays from 1980

It is truly our second home, not something we bought to let.

Why Bruno chose Perugia area

Our family bought the farmhouse back in 1976.

In 1978 we took on the project of restoring the farmhouse and began with a complete renovation respecting the traditional techniques and using old and recovery materials.

Late summer 2008

  • 4 of 5

The villa was a fantastic destination for a 2 week break late September. The journey took ages, but the house itself more than made up for it. Everything we needed was there, with plenty of fridge space, lovely cool bedrooms and good showers and facilities.

The views from the terraces out across the surrounding hills was just what we wanted, lots of peace and quiet. Pool was fab, although our second week saw the weather turn (it hailed!!) so it was less well used.

With two small children, the house worked really well, with a flat garden and the pool on a different level so we could keep an eye on them at all times.

Surrounding countryside was beautiful, with lots of great drives around the hills and lakes. It was a fair old drive to get supplies, but the local shops were really good, genuine italian culture and really friendly locals. Some great restaurants off the beaten track too.

Would recommend a stay again
