Maison et paysages magnifiques
Un accueil très attentionné, une région aux magnifiques paysages et petites villes ombriennes charmantes. Nous avons passé un super séjour dans cette très belle villa, certes un peu isolée de la vie italienne estivale, mais donc au calme, dans un très beau cadre, jardin superbe, belle piscine. A deux grandes familles, nous avions de la place pour les repas, les repos et les jeux. Nous reviendrons !
Magnifique maison, spacieuse fonctionnelle et bien équipée ! Le panorama est magnifique aussi ! Nous sommes venus en famille (12) et chacun y a trouvé sa place. La piscine est aussi géniale , grande, bien orientée au soleil ! Nous avons apprécié les après-midi au bord de la piscine, les moments passés à jouer au baby-foot, et les soirées en terrasse à faire les barbecues. Merci aussi pour l'accueil et la disponibilité de Chris et de la famille des propriétaires qui ont répondus présents lors de nos demandes. Bref la prestations est à la hauteur dans une très belle région!

We really enjoyed our stay in this quietly situated villa . Was quite far ride to get to nearest shop, but nonetheless well worth the stay. We especially enjoyed the spacious swimmingpool with beautiful views of the hills and village Preggio. We felt very welcome and owners took there time to explain points of interest to us. Must have: baked pizza by the owners wife, with mozarella, pomodoro and black truffle...amazing:-)
Car Essential. Nearest Airport San Egidio (Perugia).

Follow this road until arriving at junction signposted Castel Rigone (left) and Preggio (right). At this point there is another minor (white) road on the right immediately before the road for Preggio. Take this and follow for 1km, where you will find Casa Peonia on the left.
From A1, exit Valdichiana and follow the Raccordo (dual carriageway) east towards Perugia. Exit at the second Passigano exit (East). Turn left following signs for Castel Rigone. After 2km take the left turn for Castel Rigone, climbing the hills with views of Lake Trasimeno behind you. In Castel Rigone continue straight on towards Preggio, passing the outstanding church on the left. After 10km arrive at a junction signposted Umbertide (right) and Preggio (left).
