Podere Castel Rigone

This old farmhouse, recently restored, stands alone on its hill surrounded by age old olive trees and an open view all around. Higher up the next hill is the village of Castel Rigone, in the valley one can see the first houses of Magione and on clear days one can even see the tops of the Sibillini mountains.

"Podere Castel Rigone is a beautiful house in beautiful surroundings. The pictures on the website correctly reflect the reality."

This comfortable private villa is a very spacious vacation villa in the midst of olive trees and green hills. The restored farmhouse is only four kilometers from Magione which is at Lake Trasimeno, and the highway connecting Siena with Perugia. An ideal starting point to explore Umbria but it is also easy to make some trips to Tuscany from here. Perugia is at 20 minutes driving whilst one drives to Siena in one hour.

There are five bedrooms in total, sharing three bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a large living room. The house can sleep 8+2 guests.

There is a terrace outside in the shade of old olive trees. From here as well as from the large pool a bit down the hill, the views are stunning and one only hears the birds singing and the occasional tractor working the land in the distance.

The pool is 6 meters by 12 meters and from 0,90 to 1,50 meters deep. There are 4 sun beds and 5 sun chairs.

There is free wi-fi, parking on the premises, a pizza oven and a weber barbecue.

An Italian couple from the area Mauro and Luciana can come and cook for you. It's highly recommended if you like a full Italian cooking experience to book an evening with them.

Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

Podere Castel Rigone is a beautiful house in beautiful surroundings. The pictures on the website correctly reflect the reality. The old house has been recently renovated, with respect for the authentic structure. It is far away from other houses, but not remote.

The pool is large and well kept by the friendly gardener who passes every day. The contact person upon arrival is very friendly and gave us some good tips for some sightseeing in the area.

Be aware that the wifi is not always stable, but that seems to be a general problem in this area (Italy?).

If we decide to come back to this area I will seriously consider renting the same house.

With kind regards, Christophe

The downpayment is 20% of the rental sum. The balance can be paid one month prior to arrival. 

There is a security deposit of Euro 250 to be paid in cash upon arrival. The owner will hand this back upon leaving, if no serious damages occurred and after deducting the extra costs for gas in colder months.

In Italy the tourism tax has been introduced. Each town can decide independently whether to apply this tax. It is important to keep in mind that the prices on our website do NOT include the tourism tax. Where we received confirmation from house owners that they have to ask for this tax, it is written underneath the price table.

Villa in Umbria is an intermediary and as such rents out holiday homes and apartments on behalf of their owners. When you book we will be sending an agreement in which you will find the bank details for the down payment and the final payment.

We know each vacation rental personally and also the owners of all the holiday rentals we have in our portfolio.

You can read more about us on the 'About Villa in Umbria' page.
