About the villa

Dramatic views | Table tennis | Large private heated pool

Looking out over mile upon mile of rolling hills and forested slopes, this former farmhouse follows the lie of the land, with steps and stairways linking rooms on several levels. Beautifully renovated recently,  the villa is furnished in very attractive country style, entirely in harmony with its setting.  At the (uppermost) entry level there are two spacious double bedrooms, one twin bedroom and one single bedroom. Comfort, colour and character create a welcoming feel in the sitting room, and stairs lead down from here to the kitchen, dining room, and a second TV sitting room which opens out to a delightful, wisteria-draped dining pergola.  The property is 500 metres above sea level and therefore the temperature drops d

At The Tobacco Tower located a few meters from the main house, there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed on the ground floor and the other with twin beds located on the mezzanine floor. The homely sitting area with kitchenette offers a private setting away from the main house.

In the herb scented gardens, long lawns encompass a breakfast terrace and a shaded sitting area by the twelve metre swimming pool and there is a new area with built in barbecue and fire pit. At the top of the lawn a rain-proof pergola covers a table tennis table. For keen walkers the villa is 3km from a shop and restaurant in medieval Preggio, and a short drive from water sports at Lake Trasimeno.
