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.

For something different, enjoy the water sports on Lake Trasimeno. Within easy reach by car are Sansepolcro, Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Spoleto, Todi, the waterfalls at Narni, and the towns of Orvieto, Montepulciano, Siena, or Florence.

"Excellent choice"

We must say the villa exceeded the web description - very pretty, immaculately maintained, comfortable furniture and good views from the terrace where we ate most of our meals.
There was plenty of friendly advice from the owners, and there is internet access in the villa.
Access to popular Umbrian & Tuscan places is good including Gubbio, Assisi, Montefalco, Siena, Montepulciano, Lake Trasimeno and more. We like to go at this time of year when it's cooler and quieter, but if you like more heat the pool area is very pleasant and although we didn't use the pool (could have) we spent some relaxing hours round it.
We flew into Florence, and Rome is a similar distance, but you can also fly into Perugia which is only about a 20 minute drive away.
We have already recommended it to most of our relatives.

Thank you for taking the time to write your kind comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at La Torretta and were able to explore the many wonderful places in the area. We look forward to welcoming your friends and relatives in the future.
Best wishes,
Barry & Beaulah.
