Perugia, Italy

3 - 9 Keys 4 Bedrooms 10 Guests 4 baths


At the end of one of the lanes on the estate, Scopetaccio offers maximum privacy. Faithfully restored using traditional materials, but with the comfort of 21st century facilities, the house is light, spacious and particularly children friendly. Set in its own lawns amidst copses and olive groves. There are four large bedrooms, all ensuite, one of which is huge and easily accommodates the two sets of full sized bunks in a colourful children/teens' room. Large sitting room with American wood burner. Dining room with doors to terraces on both sides of house. Barbecue area. Professional kitchen fully fitted to chef's standards. Separate laundry. Media area and library. Large 12m x 6m pool with safely linked paddling pool. The AstroTurf tennis court is a pleasant twelve minute wander away.

Umbria will thankfully never be the new Tuscany! It retains its traditional values and welcome for visitors, but has never pandered to hordes of tourists. What you see is genuinely what you get - some of the finest salumeria and olive oils in Italy, robust wines, locally grown fruits and vegetables. All this set in the spectacular scenery of the rolling Umbrian Hills - it is no surprise that the area is called The Green Heart of Italy. Ancient historical sites are to be found in every hill top town and the walled cities, such as Citta di Castello. The Etruscans led the good life here long before the rest of us and they left plenty of evidence of doing so! Culturally, the region hosts both internationally acclaimed festivals [Jazz, Opera, Chocolate] and local seasonal festivals often to celebrate the harvesting of olives, wine, mushrooms, asparagus, chestnuts, meats and cheeses.

Beautiful home in unique, private setting

If you are looking for a quiet, private get-away to an interesting part of the old world, this is the place. Expect heavily treed high hills and gorgeous panoramas everywhere. Fantastic touring within an hour's drive in all directions. The property is quite remote, 20 minutes drive to the nearest real town on secondary roads. And then there are the Italian highways. Always an adventure. Come prepared with good maps; don;t expect the rental car companies to providde them. 5-star property. House amenities were a little thin on our visit.”
