La Torretta is a luxury villa with a private pool and stunning views, offering peace and tranquility. It is furnished to a high standard, providing comfortable accommodation. It was an old tobacco-drying tower and adjoining barn that has now been completely rebuilt using local materials and converted to provide extremely comfortable accommodation for up to 4 people, with furnishings to a high standard. The house has stunning views and is set in 14 acres of grounds, surrounded by olive trees. Although it is in a rural position it is not isolated. The nearest village is 2 km distant, whilst the English owners live nearby. It has 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, (one en-suite with a walk-in shower). There is a fully fitted kitchen, entrance hall, lounge and dining area. There is air-conditioning for the hot summer nights, whilst under floor heating, together with a wood-burning stove ensures that you will be cosy and warm should you decide to visit outside the usual summer holiday season.
Spring is a beautiful time of the year when the roses, jasmine and lavender in the garden, together with all the wild flowers, broom and acacia trees are in blossom. The days are usually warm with pleasant cool evenings. Summer is long days with a clear blue sky and temperatures around 30 degrees, but cooling down in the evenings making outdoor dining a pleasure. Autumn has long sunny days and cool evenings. Winter usually has crisp cold nights and many fine clear days with occasional snowfalls. If you do not like the hot summer weather, why not come and see the spring flowers or in the autumn sample our new olive oil. For something different, hire a classic car during your stay or fly in a hot air balloon.
Sun beds and cushions together with sun umbrellas are around the pool. Lilos and games for children are provided. We are sorry, but this property is not suitable for toddlers.

For something different, enjoy the water sports on Lake Trasimeno. Within easy reach by car are the towns of Sansepolcro, Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Spoleto, Todi, the waterfalls at Narni, and the towns of Orvieto, Montepulciano, Siena, or Florence.
