    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    We bought this house over 20 years ago and have gradually restored it. The main part of the house is believed to date from 1600, and it is a traditional casa colonica typical of the area. Our latest project is restoring the barn in the grounds to provide a games room with a table tennis table and various other activities.

    The house nestles into the hill, sitting in secluded private grounds on the top of a small hill. The grounds are mainly laid to grass though there is a small area of vines and olive trees. Near the house, and shading the lawn, are a set of large trees which provide shade for lunches in the garden.

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

    The house has two terraces. One facing the east, outside the kitchen...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    We have aimed for a style which is welcoming and comfortable, as when the house is not rented out, it is our family holiday home. We have recently replaced most of the furnishings.

    The spacious kitchen is well equipped and ideal for those who like to experiment using local ingredients, as well as cooking for groups or families. There is a large sitting room with an open fire and sofas at one end, and a desk at the other. Water is supplied from our well.

    The bedrooms are all a generous size: light and airy.

    The thick walls keep the house cool and, in the summer months, its position captures any breeze.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This beautiful property with its number of single beds (=flexible bedroom arrangements), well equipped kitchen and spacious accommodation & grounds, ticked all the boxes for a group of 5 adults and 3 kids aged 12-14. The beautifully located,large pool provided endless fun and relaxation as did the great games facilities and La Palazzina is a great base for outings to other places in Umbria & Tuscany. The views are glorious and food shopping is nearby, but driving back on the hilly roads after dark may prove too much of a challenge for some drivers (and vehicles!). However, the villa provides excellent value and sense of both sanctuary and fun for everyone. Highly recommended. more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 13 May 2013 for a stay in August 2012

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. more
