About Property Manager
We left England over 10 years ago and have enjoyed living in Canada and now Italy. Having worked for a multinational companies we have put this knowledge into developing our own business. We have two wonderful young children that were born in Italy, who attend the local school and have the learnt Italian (and the local dialect) from their friends.
Why Property Manager chose Perugia
We bought our wonderful farmhouse and have developed it to allow us to share it with others. The views from the house are wonderful and a joy to wake up to. We love being in the countryside with views over the local village, towards Lake Trasimeno and Antognolla golf course whilst still having easy access to the main E45 / A1 north and south routes. There are stunning undiscovered villages nearby where the locals are so friendly and willing to help out in any eventuality.
What makes this Apartment unique
From just outside the farmhouse you can stroll through the woods and take a leisurely walk to our local Etruscan Tomb (Tomba del Faggeto). The Antognolla golf course is less than 1km away great for those who like an early 9 or 18 holes. As part of our love of children we have built two play areas for all ages to enjoy. Along with the slides and swings, there is a train and carriage to ride in, small climbing wall and rope ladder. All apartments are children friendly with availability of sterilisers, baby baths, catches on cupboards, changing mats, baby listeners, stair gates and bed-guards to name a few facilities.
