Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Umbria, known as " The Green Heart of Italy" is renowned for having more festivals than any other region of Italy. It has beautiful hill towns of all sizes and a very varied landscape with several hilly areas and plateaux.
Perugia,Assissi, and Cortona are all within one hour's drive from Paciano, whilst exploring further afield will take you to the picturesque towns of Orvieto,Todi, Gubbio and Spoleto. The renowned Umbria Jazz Festival is held in Perugia in early July.
Umbrian is well-known for its cured meats, particularly salamis, wild boar, cheeses and black truffles.
Umbrian wines are fast gaining a name for themselves, and there are four recognised wine routes in the region, the most well-known being in the Montefalco and Torgiano area.

We are very close to the Tuscan/Umbrian border to the west.The towns of Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano lie in the Val D'Orcia ( a UNESCO World Heritage site ) and are all within a one hour drive from our house. Siena, famous for its Palio but also a truly beautiful medieval city is accessible by train as well as by car( 1.5 hours ).

Paciano

Paciano is a small medieval walled town with three excellent restaurants, two bars/cafes, a butcher, two mini-markets, post office and pharmacy. It also has a tennis court and children's playground.
The lakeside town of Castiglione del Lago is within a 15 minute drive. In addition to being another very picturesque medieval town it has many good restaurants and delicatessens, supermarkets and a weekly market. On its lakeside are a couple of sandy beaches and also watersports facilities, including windsurfing and canoeing.
Lake Trasimeno is the fourth largest lake in Italy and two of its islands can be reached by ferry from Castiglione del Lago. Isola Maggiore has a very small village whilst Isola Polvese is a nature reserve. There is a cycling route around the entire perimeter of the lake and many walking trails in the area. Fishing is also available.
The 9 hole Lamborghini golf course at Panicarola is 10 minutes away by car, whilst there is an 18 hole course at Perugia.
Citta della Pieve and Panicale are two more hilltop walled towns which are within a 20 minute drive from us. Citta is famous for its Palio towards the end of August.
The Trasimeno Blues festival takes place in the last week of July and most of the concerts are free.
Hardly a day passes in the summer without a market or fair being held somewhere in our area!

“Umbrian Idyll”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

We had an great stay at Tartagli Bassi in Paciano. The house had lots of space for 10 adults – two families with grown up kids – providing plenty of indoor and outdoor communal area or hideaways, comfortable bedrooms and more than enough bathrooms and showers to go round. The main kitchen had everything we needed and there was always the spare one upstairs just in case – the second fridge certainly came in useful. The large dining table had splendid views and shade if you wanted it. One of the highlights was watching the sun go down from the first floor terrace with a pre-dinner drink, second only to enjoying the view of the Umbrian countryside from pool. Paciano is a lovely walled town and the 5-10 minute walk from the house meant we could leave the cars and have a few drinks at its small but good quality selection of friendly restaurants and bars. We were lucky enough to be there for the Paciano August festival with bands and entertainment in the town square. We also played tennis at the well looked after local court (6 or 8 euros an hour) when it cooled down. Trips out included Panacale (by foot), Perugia, Assisi and a night in Orvieto on the way back – all recommended. If we needed any help or advice, Leslie was brilliant – only a call or text away – many thanks .

Thanks Peter. Great to know you had such a good time and Leslie is certainly a treasure.

“A bit of Paradise in Umbria”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2015

Diana's House. Tartagli Bassi. Paradise. All the same phrases. We spent two glorious weeks here with friends joining us from time to time. Really two houses in one - an upstairs with three bedrooms and a kitchen and deck and a downstairs with two bedrooms and a great sitting room and large kitchen and dining area. There is a pool on site which is a great place to watch the Umbrian sun settle into the evening (or you could go to that upstairs deck!) Amazing support from the community and Leslie who ensured our stay remained trouble-free. We used the pizza oven two separate nights - making our own pizza, had one of Paciano's finest - Tonino - give us all a cooking lesson, the list is endless. Great starting point for excursions to Sienna, Orvieto, and Perugia. Or you can just rest there - so many nooks and crannies inside and out to read a book, feel the sun on your face or carry on a great conversation. If you are looking for a great stay, this is the place.

Thanks so much for the review and I know that the "locals" enjoyed your company as much as you did theirs.

“A truly fantastic property in beautiful settings”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2015

We have stayed in a number of villas over the years but this is by far the best. It is spacious with plenty of communal areas for when you all want to get together. The property is decorated and furnished so that it is stylish yet unpretentious, allowing you to feel comfortable in your surroundings. It has everything you need - from pool towels to herbs and spices, DVDs, games and books - so you can get on with a relaxing holiday from the moment you arrive. The views are amazing and the sunsets from the swimming pool and particularly the upper balcony are really very special. And the local house manager, Lesley, is a complete star. We can't speak highly enough about this place - it has everything & we really hope to get back to visit again in the not too distant future.

“Wonderful villa, fabulous location.”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2015

We recently stayed at Tartagli Bassi with our two kids and our parents. It was a wonderful villa which had everything we needed. We had both floors which allowed us to have our own space as a family with the kids,but enabled us to join together with our parents in the communal areas. The property has a lovely olive grove, large pool and lots of places to hide away with a glass of proscecco and a book. The villa is located on the boarder of Umbria and Tuscany which allowed us to explore both areas without too much driving. We will definitely be back as there is so much more to explore and is the perfect place to just relax.

“Exceptional accommodations in a stage worthy setting”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2014

We had a fantastic time at Tartagli Bassi. It is a magnificent little villa with every amenity for which one could wish to provide a comfortable and most delightful vacation experience. Nestled in an enchanting setting, within walking distance to a gem of a medieval village (Paciano), Tartagli Bassi is the perfect base for touring the best regions of Umbria and Tuscany. Moreover, with Diana M"s encyclopedic welcome package and Leslie B's most helpful guidance, one can capture a wife variety of delights and experience of the region. Tartagli Bassi and Paciano are gems that deserve repeated visits. We certainly plan to go back.

“Beautiful villa in the Umbrian countrysidep”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2014

Tartagli Bassi is a well equipped villa, tucked away, yet 5minutes walk from the atmospheric town of Paciano. The sunsets were fantastic, as were the pool, the grounds and the fireflies. Strongly recommend for a larger family, as it has two separate sections each with their own terrace, kitchen and living area. Paciano is a picturesque italian town that has a good local butcher, as well as a few restaurants and a small shop. La Logetta stood out as the best restaurant that serves local dishes. The pici with Umbrian sausage and pecorino stood out as one of the best dishes of the trip, followed by some very good gelato! All in all, the perfect combination of a rustic, rural hideaway and a local italian village.

“Perfect house, perfect location, perfect pool!”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2014

We had a fabulous week at Tartagli Bassi, it made a perfect venue for my mums 70th birthday celebrations and the very helpful local manager, Lesley made a fantastic recommendation of a local patisserie shop - Michele's for the cake. The house was so well equipped and did feel like a proper family home - my eldest son loved playing Cluedo and my husband and uncle made amazing pizza in the pizza oven! It was very comfortable, views, pool, location all perfect. We just need to think of a good excuse to return soon!

“Fabulous destination”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2013

We loved this holiday house. We were a group of two families with children ranging from 9 to 16 and the size of the property gave everyone space to do their own thing when they wanted to. We were surprised by the fact that there is no internal staircase in the house between the upper and lower floors, although that wasn't a problem for us. The teenagers were delighted by the good wi-fi connection and the younger ones spent a lot of time in the pool.The views over the surrounding countryside are spectacular and the pool was large and clean. Paciano is a lovely little town, a few minutes walk away and we enjoyed eating out at the local restaurants. We also had great fun using the wood-fired pizza oven at the house. Food, wine and coffee were excellent at almost every place we tried. The house is in a great location in that there are things to see and do almost on the doorstep yet it's far enough from the town not to worry about making a noise. We had planned to do lots of day trips but the 40 degree- plus weather encouraged us to spend more time lazing by the pool than we'd expected- no bad thing. We did get to Assissi, Siena and Perguia- Assissi in particular was a huge hit with everyone. The water park at Tavernelle, about 20 mins away, was the children's favourite day out. There was lots more we could have done but we're saving the rest for our next visit! Perhaps the best thing about this property is the welcome- Diana, the owner, and Leslie the house manager were both brilliant, with lots of helpful information. We've stayed in many holiday homes and never had such a kind and helpful welcome.

“Perfect location, superb holiday villa”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2013

Superb sunset views from the terraces, large well tended swimming pool, airy comfortable bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, this villa is the real deal! We visited with another couple and their children (11, 6 and 5) and it was perfect. The location is excellent, not overlooked but an easy walk to the village and local shops, restaurants and all important gelateria. This was our 3rd visit to Umbria and there's still loads to explore and enjoy - Multipulciano, Orvieto, Assisi are unmissable, and finding the 40th Umbria Jazz festival in full swing in equally amazing Perugia was a real bonus for us. Highly recommended.

Lovely house, lots to do around area with lake and castle nearby worth a visit. Pool was very nice with great views. Large garden for children to play in.
