Old farmhouse, full equipped, very suitable for small groups or large familie

Palazzolo is a farmhouse surrounded by farm vineyards and part of a farm of about 490 acres. It has a private and fenced swimming pool 6x12m (i.e. 20x39 feet) in size and a private garden, with a beautiful view on Chiana Valley and Mt. Cetona and on Città della Pieve. Palazzolo is a self-catering unit suitable for families or groups of max. 10 people willing to combine a relaxing holiday in the countryside with the chance to visit places with archaeological, artistic and natural beauties in Tuscany, Umbria and Latium. Our house can be used as a starting point for daytrips to Florence, Rome, Siena, Cortona, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Chianti, and the Trasimeno Lake area as well as other beautiful destinations (i.e. Mount Amiata). The house combines the comfort of a villa with the rural location of an old farm-house and provides you with plenty of space to live in. If you come from Scandinavia, one of us speaks Finnish and Swedish. Since September 2015 we have to collect on behalf of the Municipality a tourist tax of 0,90 euro that is due only for the first 5 nights and only by the person who are at least 14 years old

                                                              Beautiful views, helpful accommodating hosts, wonderfully appointed property offering seclusion.

                                                              We loved the location; the property offered us privacy with superb facilities but with easy access to a beautiful hilltop village offering superb dining and fabulous history to experience. The property was brilliantly appointed and Maria made sure we had essentials left for us; she couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. The view across the hillside were spectacular.

                                                              Everything was perfect !!

                                                              The pictures of this home do not do it justice, Palazzolo is much bigger than it looks! All rooms inside the house are big with plenty of open space. You could easily accommodate 2 families with their own space on separate upper floors (We only needed the middle floor to sleep our family). The pool is big and deep with amazing views over the valleys. Only a few hundred metres from the main road, but you feel total seclusion from everyone else if you like your privacy. Maria was absolutely lovely to deal with and left us alone to enjoy our time there. Whenever we did need to contact her, she responded quickly and always made us feel looked after. The town 'Citta della Pieve' is a beautiful and interesting medieval town, with some great places to eat at very reasonable prices if you have kids. We know we will be back, it's perfect!

                                                              Beautifully situated, amazing views, wonderful swimming pool

                                                              Family and friends stayed here with us and we enjoyed a glorious week of sunshine. We all completely relaxed, and had a really chilled week, and even found it difficult to leave the pool and visit our favourite cafe/bar in Citta della Pieve! The farmhouse was very spacious, cool and comfortable. We had our dinner on the balcony overlooking the hills, where we would stay to chat and eat late into the evening. The house was close to the town of Citta della Pieve, and although we had camper vans we had no trouble parking. We had a wonderful time at Sienna, but beware if you take a camper van as they will charge you over £20 to park as it is the same amount if you are staying overnight. It is definitely worth having dinner in the famous square in Sienna and watch the sunset. We would definitely like to come back again one day.

                                                              Wonderful and great location!

                                                              We loved staying at Palazzolo in Citta della Pieve. The house is very well appointed and also very comfortable. We spent most of our time at the kitchen, having meals at the covered table outside the kitchen, and the pool. It has beautiful views and is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. The house is perfectly located at the border between Tuscany and Umbria, so you can easily get to great towns in Tuscany (Montepulciano and Montalcino) as well as must-see towns in Umbria (Assisi, Orvieto, Spoleto, Montefalco, etc). The house is a 5 minute drive to Citta della Pieve, which is a beautiful medieval town that has great restaurants. Maria and Heikki couldn't have been more accommodating. I highly recommend this house and would return if I go back to the area.

                                                              Another wonderful visit to Citta della Pieve

                                                              This was our second visit to this home. An excellent house for groups of 6 to 10. I would highly recommend the location and the home.

                                                              A perfect place for a vacation

                                                              The property is lovely. Everthing is neat and the owners are very helpful. The house is big enough for two families to stay in and the pool is superb with the gated fence surrounding it.

                                                              Palazzolo is located in Umbria, close the border of Tuscany (less than 5 km), in an area initially populated by the Etruscans, and thus many archaeological findings discovered in the neighbourhood can be seen in the museum of Chiusi and in some tombs. To the north of Palazzolo lies the Trasimeno lake; it is surrounded by old villages, where there are many towers and castles, and it has 3 islands (2 can be visited by boat). On the west side there are Chiana and Orcia valleys (UNESCO heritage site). The agricultural landscape is suggestive, with plenty of vineyards and olive groves, and in the area are located wineries producing good wines and olive mills. Nearby there are many small towns, that are rich in ancient remains from Etruscan, Roman and medieval times and also in thermal spas. At the Umbrian side, there are cities like Perugia, Orvieto and Assisi, which are impressive for their beauty and for the artistic and archaeological heritage.
