Property description

This beautiful property is ideally situated down a quiet country lane approx 2 miles from the Tuscany border on the western side of Lago Trasimeno. Immersed in rolling farmland the property offers complete privacy and solitude yet is only minutes from a local village which has all necessary amenities.

The property for rent consists of two houses (which are being rented together as one entity) - traditional farmhouse and guest cottage.

The traditional farmhouse was restored by local craftsmen in 2005. Using original materials and being true to the centuries old character of this country dwelling they have created a bright and spacious vacation home that is both comfortable and welcoming while incorporating all the modern conveniences which the discerning vacationer could desire.

The farmhouse contains 4 bedrooms (2 double, 1 single and 1 family room - with double and single bed) and 3 bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms contain private balconies with views of the pool and onwards towards Lago Trasimeno. There is a downstairs den with, small library and large 50' TV. The large kitchen/dining/living area is open plan in design and leads - via two fabulous arched doorways - onto a beautiful, south facing, vine covered patio area which is perfect for al fresco dining.

Approx 20 meters away, and visible from the patio, is the pool area. Special care was taken by the owners when designing the pool. It is 6m x 13m in size and is salt water based. There is a shallow end with roman steps and a deep end with a diving board. The pool is lined with brilliant Bizzasa glass tiles which shimmer in the sun. There is ample space surrounding the pool for sunbathing.

The guest cottage (80 meters from the farmhouse) was newly constructed in 2006 using materials from old out buildings and has a traditional design. It has 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), 2 bathrooms and open plan kitchen/living area with an arched doorway leading to a vaulted ceiling portico - ideal for summer dining.

Wireless broadband is available throughout the private fenced and gated grounds of 2 acres which surround the property.

Location is excellent for relaxing by the pool in a tranquil setting or for touring the Tuscany & Umbria regions and visiting many of the beautiful towns and villages close by - Arezzo, Assisi, Cortona, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Pienza and Siena - all being within a 1 hr drive. Day trips to Florence and Rome are very easy via 1.5 hr train ride - local train station is 20 mins from the property.
