    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    The Umbrian countryside is known for its uncontaminated natural beauty, an enchanting landscape little changed from the days of Perugino and his paintings. It is in this marvellous natural context that Palazzetta Alta is set, formerly a simple farmhouse in a commanding position at around 500 m above sea level, and recently transformed into a villa of high standard and great charm.
    A track lined with old trees and perfumed shrubs leads to the house, where the noises of the modern world cannot be heard, but where you are simply surrounded by gently rolling landscape with extraordinary views towards the Tuscan hills, and where a real sense of peace and quiet reigns supreme. Sunsets can be breathtaking in their intensity of colour.
    The two-bed apartment offers every comfort with ensuite bat...

Set atop a remote hill in Umbria, two hours from Rome and 30 minutes from Perugia, Peter Knight-Barnard's Palazzetta Alta offers the perfect getaway in the Italian countryside.

When we arrived we were greeted with a glass of Prosecco and found a large welcome basket in the kitchen filled with culinary treats and staples for breakfast and nibbles (eggs, bread, olives, onions, tomatoes, garlic, wine, biscotti, figs, and more).

There is an entirely self-contained apartment with a separate entrance that Mr. Knight-Barnard inhabits (more on that later). The house has an interesting layout and no expense was spared on bathroom, laundry, or kitchen fixtures. The beds are...

Management response:

Thank you for giving Palazzetta Alta such a wonderfully upbeat and detailed review. I shall certainly pass on your kind words to the housekeeper, who will be happy to know how much you both enjoyed her cooking! more
