Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
La Torretta is a special place with a private pool where you can to enjoy a relaxing, tranquil holiday. It is within easy reach of the major places of interest in the Perugia area.
It was an old tobacco-drying tower and adjoining barn that has now been completely rebuilt using local materials and converted to provide extremely comfortable accommodation for up to 4 people, with furnishings to a high standard. The house has stunning views and is set in 14 acres of grounds, surrounded by olive trees. Although it is in a rural position it is not isolated. The nearest village is 2 km distant, whilst the English owners live nearby.
It has 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, (one en-suite with a walk-in shower). There is a fully fitted kitchen, entrance hall, lounge and dining area. There is air-conditioning for the hot summer nights, whilst under floor heating, together with a wood-burning stove ensures that you will be cosy and warm should you decide to visit outside the usual summer holiday season.
If you do not like the hot summer weather, why not come and see the spring flowers or in the autumn sample the our new olive oil.
For something different, hire a classic car during your stay or fly in a hot air balloon.
