Overview

Città della Pieve House Rental Photos and Description

Old farmhouse, full equipped, very suitable for small groups or large familie

Palazzolo is a farmhouse surrounded by farm vineyards and part of a farm of about 490 acres. It has a private and fenced swimming pool 6x12m (i.e. 20x39 feet) in size and a private garden, with a beautiful view on Chiana Valley and Mt. Cetona and on Città della Pieve. Palazzolo is a self-catering unit suitable for families or groups of max. 10 people willing to combine a relaxing holiday in the countryside with the chance to visit places with archaeological, artistic and natural beauties in Tuscany, Umbria and Latium. Our house can be used as a starting point for daytrips to Florence, Rome, Siena, Cortona, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Chianti, and the Trasimeno Lake area as well as other beautiful destinations (i.e. Mount Amiata). The house combines the comfort of a villa with the rural location of an old farm-house and provides you with plenty of space to live in. If you come from Scandinavia, one of us speaks Finnish and Swedish. More information on our website at: www.musignanodiandreoli.it

Beautiful views everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful villa with another family and so enjoyed our week there. Maria and her husband have created such an amazing setting among their vineyards and the views of the Umbrian/Tuscan countryside were even better than the pictures shown. Maria was always available if we had questions and the house was very clean upon arrival. We did not want to leave the property even though we had many hilltop towns to visit within an hour or less drive! The kids (and the adults!) spent many days in the large, perfectly kept pool. The house is set up really well for 2 families, with 2 equally lovely master bedrooms on the 2nd floor and 3 other bedrooms for the kids to choose from. The nearby village of Citta della Pieve is charming and makes for an easy place to grab a bite to eat or to stop and get snacks for the house. We will always remember our week in this beautiful setting! Oh...one important tip -- be sure to use the coordinates that Maria gives you to find the house the first time!

Owner's Response: Hi there, and thank you for your beautiful review. I know that is quite difficult to find the house only with my directions, but it means that you have all the privacy you need, although there are only three hundreds meters to the main road to Città della Pieve. Thank you for the way you kept the house. It has been a pleasure to have you as guests... and yes, when I've seen your pictures I could not but agree that they were better than the ones that we have on our advert! Kind regards to all the components of your group.

Thank you for the marvelous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent our first summer holiday in Italy in the fantastic farmhouse of Maria and Heikki. Climate was awesome, the house, garden and swimming pool were wonderful and regularly cleaned. No question was too much for Maria and Heikki. They showed us around in the area, gave us tips and tricks for site-seeing, shopping and dining. We drove quite a few kilometers but all villages and cities were fantastic to visit and we made beautiful pictures. And in the evenings we enjoyed the swimming pool, the garden and the nice Italian food. Thank you very much !!!!

We had an amazing time in this charming farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious farmhouse was everything we imagined with the most beautiful vistas. The kitchen was well-equipped, great dining space and the bedrooms were super comfortable. Out behind us was a beautiful vineyard and olive groves. We were in close driving distance to the most charming village we went to everyday --Citta Della Pieve. Our hosts were very accommodating and pointed us in the right direction for all the local sights. We did easy day trips to Assisi, Siena and Florence. We couldn't have asked for more. Loved it!

Gorgeous Stone Farmhouse completely new inside

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded my expectations. Very large, with 4 bathrooms, lovely custom tiles in the bathrooms, wood and glass doors, on a vineyard/ olive orchard, beautiful swimming pool! Photos throughout of the home in its original form and use. Very kind owners, left us olive oil and cherry preserves made from the property crops. My family and I will be back!

Two week holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to this beautiful house in the end of June. A kind couple, who were the owners of the house, were waiting for us. They gave us advice in practical problems and helped us to enjoy our two-week's holiday. The house and its surroundings were even lovelier than we had seen in the pictures. The house has lots of room for a big group. The kitchen equipment for cooking was good. The location on the hill was nice with the green peaceful scenery and breeze. On the morning, it was enjoyable to go swimming and then spend some time on the lovely yard and have breakfast. Sometimes in the evening, after one day trip to other cities, we sat in the garden and searched stars from the open sky. Our holiday in Palazzolo was absolutely amazing and we can recommend the house sincerely.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much of a nice review, Mari-Anne. We always appreciate reviews and look forward of old clients to return to a familiar place. We also hope that these reviews give others a reason to book a vacation from our house, since we really try to give a warm welcome to our guests and try to give them all possible assistance that we are able to give. Our motto is: Our guest is a friend that we always help according to our best capabilities. Heikki, on befalf of the owners of Palazzolo. Kiitoksia paljon Mari-Annelle miellyttävästä arvioinnista. Olemme aina iloisia kun voimme todeta, että se mitä tarjoamme on ollut asiakkaasta miellyttävää ja että mikäli mahdollista he myös palaavat uudelle lomalle jo tuttuun paikkaan. Toivomme tietysti, että hyvät arvioinnit auttavat siinä, että myös muut ovat kiinnostuneita Palazzolosta lomakohteena, sillä pyrimme kaikessa auttamaan lomalaisia, on sitten kyse pienestä ohjeesta tai hieman suuremmasta ongelmasta, niin apu on aina lähellä, sillä mottomme on vieras on ystävä jota tulee aina auttaa. Heikki, yksi Palazzolon "ylläpitäjistä"

Peaceful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were in Palazzolo one week in June 2011. Weather was sunny and it wasn't too hot. There were seven members in our group. Because the house is quite roomy, we had our own privacy. Even though it is an old building, Palazzolo is modern inside and well-decorated. It has all necessary equipment, including dishwasher and washing machine. The swimming pool was great! The owners were really friendly, took good care of us and told us hints where to go. Palazzolo's location is good, there is many interesting places to visit nearby e.g. Rome, Florence and Assisi. It is an excellent place to stay and we can recommend it to everyone who likes peace, beautiful landscapes and history.

Palazzolo is located in Umbria, close the border of Tuscany (less than 5 km), in an area initially populated by the Etruscans, and thus many archaeological findings discovered in the neighbourhood can be seen in the museum of Chiusi and in some tombs. To the north of Palazzolo lies the Trasimeno lake; it is surrounded by old villages, where there are many towers and castles, and it has 3 islands (2 can be visited by boat). On the west side there are Chiana and Orcia valleys (UNESCO heritage site). The agricultural landscape is suggestive, with plenty of vineyards and olive groves, and in the area are located wineries producing good wines and olive mills. Nearby there are many small towns, that are rich in ancient remains from Etruscan, Roman and medieval times and also in thermal spas. At the Umbrian side, there are cities like Perugia, Orvieto and Assisi, which are impressive for their beauty and for the artistic and archaeological heritage.
