Description from owner

Description

The house nestles into the hill, sitting in secluded private grounds of approximately one acre. The house is believed to date from 1600 and is built with thick stone walls , helping to keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.

The grounds are mainly laid to grass though there is a small area of vines and olive trees. Near the house are a group of large trees which provide shade for lunches in that part of the garden. There are wonderful open views across the surrounding countryside

The pool is set above the house and has a wide terrace for sunbathing. It is surrounded by a low hedge.

There is a barn, close to the house, which contains a games room with table tennis, table football and board games.

At the very top of the garden ,above the swimming pool, is an area with a swing seat which is perfect for a drink whilst watching the sun set across the valley.

The house has two terraces. One facing the east, outside the kitchen and perfect for breakfast.

Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Umbria is a landlocked province, which is still heavily agricultural. It is not overrun by tourists, but still dominated by families who have lived here for generations.

Food in Umbria is important and taken seriously. There are many restaurants in the area, often run by one family who also own the adjoining vineyard , as well as informal pizzerias and cafes. Umbertide, the small nearby town, has two markets a week selling local produce.Seasons are marked by the arrived of different produce and there are small local festivals in different towns to celebrate everything from the onion harvests to polenta to truffles. Autumn is marked by the arrival of chestnuts and the olive harvests.

Within Umbria, and easy driving distance from the house, are Orvieto, Assisi, Gubbio and many other lesser known but charming towns and villages. Lake Trasimeno is a large inland lake with popular beaches on the shore and ferries which go to the three islands.

The area was key in the Renaissance and local museums and churches have an astonishing range of work by artists such as Perugino and Piero della Francesca.

Umbertide

Umbertide is a thriving small town with a weekly market which draws in local farmers with their produce, as well as the vegetable and fish stalls which travel between the cluster of small rural communities.The historical centre which has links back to the 15th century, has recently had substantial investment with the area around the castle, La Rocca, being landscaped. Within the castle there is an art centre which holds regular exhibitions. In the nearby church and cloisters of S. Francesco there are frequent classical music concerts.

In Perugia there is the annual Jazz Festival which is internationally renowned and there are a wide range of cultural events in the surrounding villages and towns. Details of all of these can be obtained from the information centre in Umbertide.

In the valley below the house there is an excellent vineyard which from which you can buy wine by the bottle or the case.There are a wide selection of local restaurants ranging from relaxed pizzerias to Michelin listed restaurants.

Within a 20 minute drive there is horse riding and the 18 hole Antognolla golf course

“La Palazzina - top of the hill”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

So if you like new and purpose built accomodation with a throbbing night life and twenty four hour facilities La Palazzina is not for you. But what it does offer is a charming, quite and well provisioned villa on the top of a hill looking over some of the best scenery in Italy. The villa itself has been sympatheticaly restored and has all the rustic character you would ever want. It is spacious, with stone floors shuttered windows to keep out the heat and has many different places to sit and watch the world go by. The grounds are ample with a games room and private pool and again plenty of spaces to relax. If there is a minus it is the final approach up a steep gravel path, possibly two hundred meters long with an S bend in the middle. You quickly get used to it though and we managed in BMW 1 series. Overall this place is a gem and would recomend it if you want to relax and recharge your batteries in comfortable and beautiful surroundings.

Many thanks for your review. I am delighted that you liked the house and had such an enjoyable stay.

“Peaceful, chilled, great setting in the hills. Will be back there”

Reviewed 12 May 2013

Lovely spacious property in the hills above Umbertide. Good facilities including pool. You need transport to get about and into Umbertide (unless you';re a very fit cyclist. Umbertide is a small town but with all you need - cafes/restaurants/market etc. plenty of eateries round and about but eating simply at the house overlooking the hills beats the lot. Good base for seeing lots of other places if you wish.
