This sweet, homely villa in Umbria offers a dreamlike view of the hills on the horizon. A small family can reconnect here away from it all, beside the private pool or gathered round the dining table for a card game. Old World style arches, rough stone, and wooden beams overhead are reminders of the rustic locale, but the furniture remains modern, comfortable, and casual. The unique layout of this house allows access to the garden from every level, ensuring you’ll be drawn out into the country air again and again. Kids can play in the pool while you keep close watch from the nearby terrace, the long, lazy day passing in peace.
The nearest town is Preggio (1 km), where you’ll find a restaurant or two, and little else. For more city-flavoured excitement, go to Perugia (28 km), the capital of Umbria. Here Etruscan walls encase a city known for historic sites. If your sweet tooth acts up, take a detour to Perugina Chocolate Factory. On your way home you may want to see Lake Trasimeno up close; the view from your holiday villa is lovely, but a stroll on the shore is not to be missed.
