About Monique Weening
We are a Dutch family of 5 (me, my husband and our 3 sons), who have lived in many countries, Italy being one of them. We have lived for 5 years in Rome and decided to buy our family holiday home in Umbria. After two years of extensive restoration works, we can finally call it our dream house and we take much pleasure in sharing its joy with others.
Monique Weening purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Monique Weening chose Piegaro
This place has unforgettable views and sunsets and the valley breathes an incredible peace and tranquility. You have full privacy as there are no neighbours, yet you are centrally located and close to all necessary amenities and some great restaurants. This place is simply bliss!
What makes this Villa unique
We've travelled a lot ourselves and found that many holiday properties in Italy and other countries are often dark and poorly furnished, have cheap fixtures and fittings and showers with little water pressure etc. We wanted to create a light interior with new and high quality furniture and fittings. A place where you will feel at home and where care is taken of every aspect of your holiday.

Casale Sento is a beautiful home tucked in the Umbrian hills above Tavernelle. The four bedrooms are generous in size, with comfortable king (and one queen) beds.
The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen equipment, pots and pans, and dishes and glasses.
It is gloriously quiet at night and dark except for the distant twinkling lights of Piegaro.
We three couples loved the house and the easy day trips we took to Spello, Assisi, Orvieto, Citta del Pieve, Panicale, Lake Trasimeno, and Perugia.
We heartily recommend this gorgeous home.
Beautiful property in a stunning location
Our second visit to Casale Sento - it is such a special place with amazing views and sunsets, somewhere to relax completely and get away from the world!
Having been holidaying in Italy for the last 15 years this Villa is without doubt the best
The Villa, the setting, the tranquility, the pool, simply everything has a real WOW factor. This has been our second stay in Casale Sento and I’m sure won’t be the last. Yet again the Villa exceeded our expectations and memories. It truly is a wonderful property in a beautiful location. If peace and tranquillity is what you are after, whilst still close enough to visit the hill top towns and cities of Umbria and Tuscany Casale Sento is a must!
This villa was amazing and the pictures do not do it justice. The views and sunsets were beautiful. The pool was relaxing and the views from the pool were breathtaking. The bedrooms were comfortable and we were able to spread out. The house is appointed well and is above average! We had chef Sabina come in a cook one night and it was delicious and a new experience.
One point we did not see in other reviews was the winding roads - to the point that we did not do many day trips because we got motion sickness. Also- some of the roads are gravel so choose your rental car wisely. The road into the villa is not paved.
Another point - there are a lot of bugs - so bring bug spray and Benadryl - especially if someone is allergic to bites.
We did visit a few local towns - Citta della Pieve and Panicle. The Mosolino Restaurant was our favorite - request to eat in the "cave" - you will love it!
We will definitely come back someday!
A perfect week in Umbria!
The villa provided the perfect spot for relaxing as well as exploring the countryside and the cities of Perugia, Assisi, Tavernalle, and Montalaccino. The location and amenities of a Casale Sento made it difficult to leave. The covered outside sitting areas, poolside loungers, and the inside living room were the perfect places to read and relax. Johanne was the perfect representative and responds very quickly to all of our questions and inquiries. Early on in our booking process, Monique was also most accommodating. Anyone who comes to Casale Sento will have an amazing vacation experience!
Umbria is also known as the ‘green heart’ of Italy. The beautiful landscape is a mixture of gently sloping hills, forests, rivers and lakes. The region has all the charm of Tuscany, but is less crowded with tourists. Umbria is famous for its truffles, cheeses and wines. The Lake Trasimeno area is characterized by the ancient, picturesque towns around the shores of the popular lake, as well as by the attractive hill-top villages in its vicinity. Casale Sento is situated near one of these villages (5km) and can be reached by a good road of which the last 500m is gravel. Right outside the house you can make great walks, or take one of the mountain bikes and enjoy the stunning scenery. Alternatively, visit nearby wine estates or antique markets, wander through magnificent Assisi, or Perugia. Discover the hill towns around Lake Trasimeno, or go swimming in the lake. If you are adventurous, you can go rafting on the river Nera, or you can play golf at the Perugia Golf club.
