Description from owner

Description

It's a very emotional place in which you can relax body, mind and you can feel your soul.

The old Castle of Gaiche has been very well restored 14 years ago and now is a luxury private property. Gaiche merits to be remembered not only for its historical vicissitudes but above all for its statute of the year 1318, the most antique of Umbria, and to have given birth to the blessed Leopoldo.

The apartment is very warm and comfortable. It's upon two levels, situated at first floor inside the main building. At the entrance the living room with firewall and a sofa bed, with a nice kitchen with a stone entrance. At the second floor 2 bedrooms and a nice bathroom with shower.

The apartment is full furnished and you'll find all you need for a great vacation.

A swimming pool 12 x 7 mt is situated very close to the Castle, inside a protected area with bathrooms and changing rooms and all around a lot of olive trees. To arrive there a nice walk, passing near the old Church.

The Castle of Gaiche is part of one of the 234 castles that are Umbria's patrimony. The first news on the Castle go back to the 11th century. Castri Gaicorum was one of the 46 castles of the rural area of Perugia and it is the most antique of Umbria's castles survived until our days.

At the beginning of 1200 it constituted into independent republic and such remained for about two centuries.

“Idyllic hilltop location”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2012

This property is a 2 bedroom apartment within the beautifully refurbished 11th Century castle of Gaiche, The castle is accessed by driving 1.6km up a fairly steep winding road. The location is quiet and remote with great views across the valleys and towards Perugia . There is a pool area slightly away from the castle which would keep the garden area quiet in busier times. This apartment is perfect for 2-4 persons requiring a restful vacation with options for visiting Unbria and Southern Tuscany. It is very well equipped and decorated, and furnished in a comfortable, stylish manner, immediately feeling like home. This is a great location for visiting a large number of pretty hilltop towns. We were there 11 nights and never ran out of options for days out visiting Assissi, Perugia, Gubbio, Siena and even Florence (by train from Chiusi). A car is, however, essential. Highly recommended for a cofortable, relaxing and atmospheric vacation in abeautiful part of Italy.

“Such a beautiful setting: the perfect place to relax whilst the children have fun exploring.”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2012

The apartment is very well appointed, and stylishly decorated and furnished. The kitchen is small but quite adequate and contained everything necessary for a week's stay. It was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The second bedroom is quite small but suitable for two children. The grounds were tidy and well tended with fantastic views all around. The sunsets were magnificent! The apartment would not be suitable for the very elderly or infirm due to the number of steps involved nor ideal for families with very young children. It is a perfect haven for those wanting a peaceful break - or with children old enough to entertain themselves when not in the pool. Hours of fun were spent in the nearby waterpark!

“A haven of peace and quiet”
