An old country house in the Trasimeno Lake area on the boundary between Umbria and the Tuscan municipality of Montepulciano, just renovated to the most exacting standards. The house is set in the midst of mature oak woodland, organic vineyards and crop fields on a 120 acre wine estate with a natural fishing pond, private pool annd tennis court. Its seclusion and privacy ensure complete quiet and tranquillity. The region is rich in natural, historical and artistic attractions, with countless destinations in all fields of interest - history of art to shopping, wine tasting to cycling - in the close vicinity.
The renovation works have preserved the character and atmosphere typical of the Umbrian farmhouse with exposed beams and a large fireplace.

The result is a captivating combination of comfort, authenticity and charm.

The 3 suites have separate sleeping and living areas, and bathrooms with double basins. Suite 1: 1 king size bed and 2 single futon sofa beds Suite 2: 1 king size bed and 2 single futon sofa beds Suite 3: 1 king size bed and 1 single sofa bed Twin room: 2 single beds Double room: 1 double (140 cm) bed The bathrooms are modern, with natural stone finishes, large shower heads and vast mirrors.

The dining room has a large table and connects to the fully equipped kitchen, while the entrance hall also serves as a work/study area with an antique desk and pc.
The guests' accommodation is located on the first floor of the main house, the ground floor being the owners’ private holiday residence, which however only gets used when the property is not being let.
The grounds are well kept but not manicured, being planted with local wild species. Unspoilt views of the surrounding rolling hills can be enjoyed, with the Mount Amiata in the background and the vineyards and oak woods in the vicinity of the house. There is a large shed close to the house for relaxing and dining, while the pool, pool house and tennis court are approx 100 mt away.

The estate is a natural oasis rich in local flora and fauna - wild boars and hedgehogs, pheasants and fawns to name just a few species. The fresh water natural pond is inhabited by tench and carp, and is an anglers' paradise (fishing tackle not provided – bring your own).
The wine cellar and the office of the estate are located in a separate building approx. 400 mt away which is not not visible from the guests' quarters.
There is a parking lot for cars which again is not visible from the house.
Wine tasting is available on the estate. Cookery and tennis courses can be organised on request. Bio-dynamic craniosacral balancing and anti stress and relaxation massages by a qualified professional can equally be arranged.
Being part of a wine estate, during the day workers will be working in the vineyards and winery, but this will not interfere with the guests’ privacy. The manager will however be available for any need that may arise.
The main building is no-smoking. We ask our guests to take extreme care if smoking outdoors since the property is surrounded by woodland, and in the summer it can get very dry.
The living accommodation is accessible through a large stone staircase, which makes the property not suitable for people with impaired mobility. Equally, owing to the presence of the staircase, pond and swimming pool on the grounds, the property is not particularly suited to toddlers who, if present, should be kept under constant adult supervision.
4 small dogs live on the estate. They are gentle and well trained and are not allowed indoors.
In case of drought water supply may be cut off while the pool water level is being topped up.
