Ideal for Kids Walk to Village Romantic

When you set eyes on this gorgeous house and the wonderful landscapes surrounding the village, you will see how easily the owners fell in love with Casa Pietrina, set in the beautiful region of Umbria, also known as the ‘Green Heart of Italy’.

This charming three-bedroom farmhouse, found in a small countryside village, dates back to the 16th century and was bought by its current owners only a few years ago after spending so much time in their beloved Umbria. They have restored the casa beautifully and have retained so much character – from the impressive chestnut beams to the hearty fireplaces and arched doorways.

Yet they have also added their own personality to their new home such as lovely lighting, perfectly picked furnishings, artwork, books and a host of other contemporary features such as a Smart TV,  a Bluetooth speaker as well as DVDs and games. Not to mention the brilliant kitchen-diner with its designer fridge-freezer, Nespresso machine and marble worktops.

New additions also include a charming ‘winter garden’ room with a wood-burning fire and glass doors leading to the al-fresco dining area with its Weber barbecue, as well as an upper terrace looking out over the village and beyond.  Finally, the large swimming pool is wonderful for the summer months, set below the house and overlooking the olive grove with amazing views.

It’s a perfect spot for exploring so much of this region from idyllic hilltop villages and towns such as Spoleto, Assisi, Trevi and Norcia to cycling through the Umbrian hills or hiking in the Sibilini Mountains. Enjoy rustic Umbrian fare in traditional and welcoming restaurants or have a local nonna prepare delicious meals for you to enjoy at home. Try some of the best olive oils in the country, visit the famous vineyards of Montefalco or you could even spend a day on one of the blue-flagged beaches of the Adriatic.

Whether drinking local Sagrantino by the wood-burning stove after a day truffle hunting or simply sun-bathing by the olive trees and swimming pool, Casa Pietrina is a holiday home for all the seasons, allowing you to experience the colours of Umbria throughout the year.

Casa Pietrina is set in a small and authentic Umbrian village, just 12km from the delightful town of Spoleto and perfectly positioned to explore the best of this captivating region and beyond.

Drive up the narrow village lane and there is on-site parking for one or two small cars in a driveway. Alternatively you may find it easier to park in the square below and then walk up the stairs to the house.

There are some wonderful places to eat within a 5 to 10km drive - family-friendly trattorie, lovely pizzerias and a fantastic farm shop which has its own restaurant and amazing gelato. One of the next local villages, 7km away, is home to a well-stocked grocery store whilst there are larger supermarkets in Spoleto and Trevi, about a 15-minute drive away.

The idyllic Umbrian town of Spoleto is easily reached, just 12km away – admire its spectacular Ponte delle Torri, explore its historic lanes and soak up its authentic ambience. Nearby Trevi is also a delight, as are the enchanting perched villages of Montefalco, Spello and Bevagna, all within half an hour by car.

A little further, sample some of the gastronomic delights in Norcia (50km), possibly combined with walking or cycling in the amazing Sibillini Mountains, or head north towards Assisi (45km) with its historic treasures and world-famous sights.

Le Marche is also waiting to be discovered with precious towns such as Macerata and Ascoli Piceno 100km away and the glorious Adriatic coastline reached in around ninety minutes. Drive up to the magnificent Conero National Park, just south of Ancona, and visit one of Italy’s most beautiful beaches, Due Sorelle, by boat.

Closer to home in Umbria, there are endless cycling tracks, both on and off road, superb walking trails through the verdant landscapes of rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards or, for the most adventurous, white-water rafting along the Corno river.

Cookery lessons can be arranged for guests, as can tastings – sample some of Italy’s finest olive oil and try some excellent wines, especially around the vineyards of Montefalco where the DOCG Sagrantino is produced.     

Finally, spend the day in Rome by travelling on the fast train service from Spoleto, taking just 1 hr 20 mins to reach Italy’s splendid capital city.

Children will be welcomed with open arms across Umbria whether dining in a local pizzeria or visiting the idyllic hilltop villages and towns of this glorious region.

Nearby Spoleto will amaze children as they gaze at the medieval fortress and Roman amphitheatre –if it all gets too much then there are some wonderful restaurants or simply relax with coffee and gelato in one of the town’s charming cafes. The Ponte delle Torri is amazing and there are some lovely woodland walks and picnic spots through the shady Monteluco woods.

Heading south the man-made Marmore Falls is another impressive place for walking whilst the most adventurous can try rafting along the Nera river. There are also more white-water rafting opportunities along the Corno river.

Younger guests may simply prefer a day out at the theme park near Perugia, Citta della Domenica. There’s also the ‘Activo Park’ with go-karts, playgrounds, mini-golf, trampolines and other adventures, found south-east of Spoleto, around half an hour away.

Of course, throughout Umbria there are walking trails for a variety of abilities as well as both on road and off road cycling. Horse-riding is another wonderful way to appreciate the incredible landscapes around you.

You can even visit the coast for the day with many blue-flagged beaches around Civitanova Marche around ninety minutes by car.

Cooking classes can also be arranged for all the family, hosted by a local nonna who can teach you to prepare some wonderful Umbrian cuisine.

Reviews

  • We do hope to go back one day!

    on 30/10/2023

    Stephen and Bianca were amazing hosts! They really couldn’t do enough for us!! My husband even used his bike! We were lucky to have unseasonably warm weather. The pool came into its own and all the different outside areas were so gorgeous.
    Bianca arranged some amazing trips for us including a cooking lesson from a nonna which was brilliant. We do hope to go back one day!

  • Nice view from the terrace

    on 21/07/2023

    We had a wonderful stay at Stephens beautiful house. The outdoor area is great, the house was very clean, had a lot of space and a very well equipped kitchen. Nice view from the terrace and a lot of places to sit and enjoy your drink. The children (and adults) loved the pool. You will have a great vacation in this house.

  • Outstanding location

    on 09/05/2023

    This is a prime location in Spoleto and Stephen was outstanding in providing all I needed.

    The interior is modern and first class; every amenity is looked after. I am a chef and musician and held a small gathering which was extremely successful. Incredible views of Spoleto valley; can't say enough great things. You would be missing an extraordinary stay if you didn't make a reservation for this outstanding location. Can't wait to stay again!

  • What an amazing villa!

    on 28/09/2022


    The owner Stephen and property manager Bianca were both great to deal with and very communicative, friendly, flexible and couldn’t be more helpful. It made the whole stay so relaxing.
    The villa itself is situated in a gorgeous and quiet little village in the Umbrian hills with amazing views and sunsets. The swimming pool is great, super clean and wonderful place to cool down, relax or exercise.
    The villa itself is so nice, a mix of old and new, with the building clearly lovingly refurbished for Stephen and his family. It is very spacious, clean has all the modern comforts you would need mixed with lovely character. There was plenty of options for dining in the villa or relaxing with a great terrace, conservatory, and multiple seating areas. It was a short drive or long walk to the local shops, with Spoleto just a bit further away for all the normal amenities and big supermarket.
    We could not recommend the villa enough, it’s probably the best place we have ever stayed.

  • Great pool
