Villa Torraccia

On top of a hill is this stylishly furnished private villa with pool overlooking green hills with olive trees and Lake Trasimeno in Umbria. It has an isolated position and has been furnished in a very personal manner introducing antique family furniture from India in a typically Italian home.

The private Villa Torraccia once was a typical farmhouse and the owners kept all traditional wooden beams, floors and architecture of the house. The combination of the old house with the modern comfort of new bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen make it a pleasant home for your holidays in Umbria and Tuscany.

At only 10 minutes driving from the village of Tuoro sul Trasimeno it is an ideal starting point to visit both Umbria and Tuscany. In 40 minutes one can walk to the village.

Distances to towns in Umbria: Perugia 35 minutes, Assisi 60 minutes, Orvieto 1 hr and 15 minutes, Castiglione del Lago 25 minutes, Passignano sul Trasimeno 15 minutes. Distances to towns in Tuscany: Cortona 30 minutes, Montepulciano 45 minutes, Siena 1 hr, Florence centre 1 hr and 40 minutes. It is 20 minutes driving to Terontola railwaystation with direct connections to Rome and Florence.

The pool is situated below the house against the hill and measures 10 by 5 metres. It is 1.30 metres deep. There is a covered terrace next to the pool and there are sunbeds. Around the house are several old trees guaranteeing some necessary shade on hot summer days. Next to the house is a barbecue area with pizza oven, work space and a sink. In front of the house are two tables with benches and chairs to dine al fresco. Wherever you are in the garden there is a lovely view over the surrounding hills with the lake Trasimeno in the background.
