Umbria - central Italy, near border with Tuscany, close to Lake Trasimeno, beautiful hamlets and historic towns such as Perugia, Assisi, Città della Pieve, Pienza and Cortona. Delightful, fully equipped (including internet connection), elegantly furnished and totally air conditioned apartment in a 17th-century recently-restored stone farmhouse in the hills, on a large agricultural estate (organic olive oil production).
We have three 1-bedroom apartments in this farmhouse. This apt is called "La Rosciola", and is composed of a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower (and a few handles, as the apt. is also equipped for the disabled), a living room with single sofa bed and old fireplace, and a fully-equipped wooden kitchenette decorated with hand-painted tiles. There is a small, very panoramic, private outside space with two wooden armchairs (the space is not directly connected to the apartment - you need to go outside).
The apartment looks out onto a very characteristic terracotta courtyard on one side, and on the other it offers great views of the valley below and the surrounding hills.
There are terracotta panoramic terraces (one with large stone barbecue), equipped for eating outside, a fantastic infinity pool with sunbeds, outside shower, tables and umbrellas, a spacious common room with many books and tourist info, a free wireless internet connection and games and books for children.
In our property there are several trails for nature walks, jogging and trekking.
We offer a fun Italian cooking lesson with dinner in our common room, held by a young local chef.
The closest town (Tavernelle di Panicale) is 10 minutes away by car. Here you will find pizzerias, bakeries, supermarkets, shops, etc. There are delicious restaurants in the area serving typical Umbrian meals. The beaches and islands of Lake Trasimeno are 20 minutes away by car. In Tavernelle you will also find a tennis court and a great water park.
Guests have access to the pool with its surrounding terrace with outside shower, sunbeds and umbrellas. There is also another terrace with a large stone barbecue (wood provided). There are trails in the property for walking, trekking, mountain biking, There are books and an extra lounge for everyone to use in the large common room.
Interaction with guests
My sister Monica and her companion Ernesto, who manage the property, live on the estate, just a few minutes away by car. We meet our guests daily, when we pass by to see that everyone is happy at the farmhouse, and when we come daily to clean and maintain the pool. We will be happy to give you any information you may need or help you book restaurants, a wine-pairing dinner in a nearby estate, truffle hunting, a cooking lesson with dinner on our estate, and other activities.

I deal with the Marketing and Bookings of this family-run agricultural estate and "agriturismo" (rental of apartments in farmhouses) and I live in Rome. My sister Monica and her companion Ernesto live in Colle San Paolo and manage the farmhouses, and they will be assisting you during your stay. We produce extra virgin and organic olive oil on this beautiful property on the hills that overlook lake Trasimeno, in the Umbrian countryside. We have about 2.000 old olive trees (250 are more than 150 years old), and we have recently planted 500 new trees.
About 5 years ago we restored three 17th-century farmhouses, creating 9 apartments, 2 independent cottages and a villa. We have built two pools and several panoramic terracotta terraces around the farmhouses, and planted many flowers and flowering bushes in the gardens. The area is very interesting (mediaeval hamlets, historical towns, castles, Etruscan tombs and Museums, wine and cheese-producing estates, etc.), and there are quite a few delicious local restaurants - we will be pleased to give you all the information for touring the area and discovering this enchanting part of central Italy, between Umbria and Tuscany.
