Piegaro farmhouse description

Our piece of paradise overlooks the Umbrian countryside and is surrounded by corn fields, sunflower fields and olive groves. The gated farm house, barn and surrounding buildings have all been tastefully converted into 8 homes / apartments with shared use of pool and grounds. We are part of a quiet, private 17 acre estate that is yours to explore, yet minutes by car from the closest hilltown for morning cappuccino! Our corner 2 story home, which is part of the old barn, has a large private walled and gated garden. The grounds and pool are magnificent, this is a very special property.

This home is beautifully furnished with local works of art and modern touches, to a very high standard, this is not your usual rental property. The two large bathrooms have stunning Venetian plaster walls and are tiled with tumbled marble, both have showers. All ceilings have old traditional beams and cotto floors. We have also had screens especially made for all the windows to keep the insects out and let the breezes in. The kitchen has every convenience and is fully stocked with everything you need. There is private parking adjacent to the house, providing easy access for luggage - no dragging it through the streets of a hill town. The pool is typically open from mid June - early September.

Situated on the road that runs between Citta della Pieve and Piegaro on the Tuscany / Umbria border there is easy access to both. Towns nearby are Panicale, Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia.

This is Umbria at its best with easy access to the A1 that runs between Rome and Florence it is an ideal base for day trips. If you don't feel like driving the main rail station of Chiusi is close by and in 70 minutes you can be in Rome or Florence.

There are 4 other owners who are in residence on the odd weekend or for the Italian vacation in August, most of the time you have the whole estate to yourself.

                                  Year Purchased: 2007

                                  About the owner: We are an English American family living in the US with a love for Europe which is why we purchased this home as our European base. We have only been renting our home to friends and family until recently as we take great pride in the care of our home, however having used VRBO ourselves and having stayed in some wonderful places we decided to list our home also. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Piegaro:
                                  To us Umbria offers the very best of Italy - as beautiful as Tuscany yet less touristy. Fabulous food and wine at half the price. This is the 'real' Italy - most often it is you and the locals enjoying dinner in a restaurant. The hilltowns are abundant, and you are never far from Lake Trasimeno if you need to be near water, as is the case with my husband who cannot live far from the beach!

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                                  Peace, tranquility, stunning surroundings, interesting wildlife - wild pig and boar! Yet you are never far from a hilltown with a fabulous restaurant.
