Description

Umbertide Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

House in Preggio, Unbertide Area, Umbria, Italy

Casa Pugnanella has a rustic charm that is nestled in the Umbrian countryside. A white road, (1 1/2 km long) leads to this traditional farm house which has been renovated, boasting modern conveniences, yet somehow retains the element of bygone years. The farmhouse is fenced and gated. The entry is lined with cypress trees leading to the circular courtyard and entrance. Shuttered windows all with screens open to breathtaking views. The pool is conveniently located with comfortable loungers to relax and take in the panoramic views of the Umbrian hills. Upon entering the villa, the first floor consists of the well-equipped kitchen, dining room (seats 10), bedroom, bathroom(for those who may have difficulty with stairs), laundry room and a large living room with fireplace and French doors that open to the garden. The second floor consists of 2 en-suite bedrooms, another bedroom and bathroom and an office; all which reveal the magnificent view that captures the heart of Italy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Casa Pugnanella is lovely, comfortable, with large spacious rooms that are beautifully decorated. If features a kitchen that is every cook's delight. It has a large swimming pool and fabulous views of the countryside. The villa is also near a train station which made a trip to Florence very easy. All in all, it is relaxing place to collect wonderful memories. Our visit could not have been more perfect. We will return. Thanks for your hospitality." Dan and Faith Boudreau, USA



"Our time at Casa Pugnanella was incredible. We were able to take day trips to Florence, Sienna and return every evening to shop at the local market and prepare a true Italian dinner in the fully equipped kitchen. The pool was enjoyed by our teenager while we could be entertained with the satellite TV. The seclusion creates a feeling of opulence of an aristocrat Italian."

wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at Casa Pugnanella. The villa was very beautiful and well equipped and the setting was very tranquil, away from passing traffic and with views of the wooded valley. The owner and housekeeper were both very helpful and the house was clean and in good condition.
