On top of the world! That is exactly how it feels. This recently restored Casa Padronale sits atop a hillside with sweeping views into the valley below. From the beautiful Farmhouse style kitchen with adjoining Loggia for breakfast to the wonderful Drawing room with enormous fireplace the sense of peace and tranquillity is apparent. The grounds surrounding the house offer wonderful walks, therefore all guests have plenty of private space and yet the communal areas offer great entertaining possibilities. The pool area overlooking olive grove and vines is a panacea for the senses. The house has been restored using traditional materials of the region and has excellent green credentials with a low carbon footprint. The tasteful furniture and sense of style are apparent everywhere. The old adage of Location, location says it all when one gazes at the Vista below the house. All bedrooms have overhead ceiling fans and all rooms have insect screens. For children there are cots, high chairs and a buggy as well as an abundance of games. For the adults, think of wine tastings, cooking courses and so much more. You may never want to leave! For those who like to combine relaxation with sightseeing, there are many wonderful towns within easy driving distance such as Cortona, Citta Di Castello and Perugia.
We can even offer Italian immersion courses at the Villa so that when one does venture forth, one is prepared to mix in with the local people and practise.
The house also has an abundance of books and plenty of secluded areas to sit and read.
There are our main bedrooms, a bedroom/study which has a convertible sofa bed and the Hay loft also has futons which are perfect for young people. There are four double bedrooms and a twin room and three bathrooms.
As a personal touch for our guests we offer toiletries and a welcome pack.
