Casa Della Mamma is a studio apartment on the ground floor of an 800 year-old stone Umbrian farmhouse. Located just outside the small hill-top town of Paciano and a short distance from Tuscany. It sits on a hillside in a pastoral setting surrounded by olive trees and oak forests with a view of the 13th Century village of Paciano and Lake Trasimeno.

Visitors have use of an enchanting garden with a pergola and marble table for panoramic outdoor dining.

The space

Casa Della Mamma is part of a restored Umbrian farmhouse and has a private entrance and parking. It has a fully equipped modern kitchen with dining table for four. The sitting room/bedroom has exposed stone walls and an armoire. On chilly evenings a wood stove with glass doors adds to the ambiance of the space. The private bathroom has a tiled shower. Right outside is an outdoor dining table in addition to the garden space with the marble table. There are screened doors from the kitchen and sitting room to the garden access. It is just outside the medieval walled town of Paciano. The town is on the border of Tuscany and Umbria. The house is surrounded by olive trees and is near a quiet road. It is a few chilometres from the beautiful Lake Trasimeno.

The best part of Casa della Mamma is the gorgeous garden within an olive grove, featuring a pergola with marble table perfect for watching the sunset before dinner. Herbs and fruit trees are available when in season.

Guest access

There is plenty to enjoy in the nearby area. This includes swimming in Lake Trasimeno, walking or biking the hills and visiting the many small picturesque villages and towns, such as Paciano and Castiglione del Lago. The historic cities of Montepulciano, Cortona, Siena, Assisi and Perugia are all within an hour. Even Rome and Firenze is only a couple hours drive or train ride away.

We arrived at Afsaneh's home after a lovely drive through the Umbrian countryside. Without any trouble I found the turn off for "La Varacca", a sweet little hamlet just outside of Paciano were the rental is located. My wife and I arrived tired and were grateful to be met by Afsaneh who showed us around the apartment and the garden. Her English is excellent so she could share her knowledge about the area, recommended restaurants and local sights. The apartment was perfect for the two of us with a bedroom/living room, bathroom and a small kitchen with a dining nook. But eating outside is the way to go. We had some rain but were able to grab some mealtimes in the garden. The garden is where this property especially shines. Amidst an olive grove she has built a very large covered pergola with a table large enough for 10 people. The view of Trasimeno Lake and the mountains beyond is breathtaking. You also have a great view of the sunset. There is outdoor lighting for nighttime eating and drinking. The old medieval walled town of Paciano was also a delightful surprise for us. There are four great restaurants (Il Casale, an excellent family restaurant is an easy 5 minute walk from the apartment.), a small museum, grocery and bars. A great place to just sit was the little piazza with a glass of wine. All in all we couldn't have been happier with this rental. We hope to get back soon.
