Casa Padrone is a recently built property providing accommodation of a very high standard. The unbroken panoramic view of Lake Trasimeno - the 4th largest lake in Italy - is reason enough to make this a standout property. In addition to the view however is the attention to detail inside and outside with elegance, style and comfort in mind. The house is situated on a ridge overlooking Lake Trasimeno, the pretty lakeside town of Tuoro sul Trasimeno is a short drive. Within walking distance (1km) is a trattoria specializing in local dishes. Casa Padrone is a wonderful base from which to explore the towns, village and countryside of Tuscany and Umbria, with Florence, Rome and Siena within reach for day trips. Casa Padrone has Wifi and geothermic cooling system (similar to air-conditioning). Free wifi throughout.
(House cooling and heating, pool and jacuzzi heating are optional extra charges, detailed at the end of this passage. I can't add them to the fees on this website as they don't have the format to put in optional weekly fees).
The house and its furnishings have a contemporary style. It is on 3 floors with the communal areas being on the middle floor. The front door opens onto this floor and from a hallway takes one into the large L-shaped open plan living space with large sitting room to one end with big windows to enjoy the view, satellite TV with some channels in English and DVD player. Between the sitting area and dining area is a fireplace built into the wall. The dining area enjoys the same views and at the end is the kitchen with door opening onto an outside terrace with outside dining furniture. The kitchen has American style fridge-freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine, walk in pantry and cooking island with 5 induction plates. There is a WC with basin on this floor. The master bedroom is on the upper floor with a french window opening onto a balcony with the wonderful lake views and en suite bathroom (no tub). On the lower (ground floor) are the 2nd and 3rd double bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms including bath tubs and showers. Also on this floor is the utility room with washer and dryer. The 4th bedroom (designed as a store-room) is not on a par with the other 3 bedrooms but can be used when required with one or two single beds, it is best used by children. The 4th bathroom is on this floor and intended for use while at the pool.
The garden is terraced with lawned areas and shrubs. There are 2 areas for outside dining provided with tables, chairs and umbrellas. The pool and jacuzzi are on the lower terrace of the garden and enjoy unbroken views of the lake. The pool is unusually large and deep for a private house making it suitable for diving, it has an infinity edge and is tiled. The jacuzzi is next to the pool and is also tiled. For the safety of children both jacuzzi and pool have hard covers that can be retracted at the press of a button. Heating for pool and/or jacuzzi are an extra cost. Pool heating is only available between May and September.
The grounds are fully fenced with electric gates opening for cars - guests are provided with the zapper. In addition the house and grounds are fitted with a security alarm.
Please note swimming pool and jacuzzi heating and air-conditioning are all optional extras and charged extra. We start pool heating 7 days before arrival so it is as warm as possible on arrival.
Pool heating £300/week Jacuzzi heating: £20/day AC: £14/day. Central heating £300/week. All MUST be booked in advance of the stay. Do ask for details. I would suggest that generally air-con is preferable from Early July to mid-August. Pool heating from May to late June and from early to late September. free wifi .
