Nestled in the green heart of Umbria, close to Lake Trasimeno, you will find this seemingly typical farm. But look closely and you will notice that it is anything but typical – it has been lovingly restored by its architect owner to reflect traditional local building techniques, alongside some carefully considered antique and modern interior touches, blending 21st century style with the traditional Umbrian old stone buildings.

This large property consists of several buildings, including a main farmhouse and a converted hayloft. It sleeps up to twelve people over its six bedrooms, in the two buildings. The main house offers an open plan living area with plenty of seating and a place to dine, opening out on to the terrace which overlooks the lake. Step out on to the other side of the house and you will be under a covered pergola where you can enjoy al fresco dining.

The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, but if you want to use the services of a local cook, just ask the owners and that can be arranged. The farm’s old henhouse has been converted into an outside kitchen so that you can cook and eat under a wisteria-covered pergola as the sun sets over the lake. It also has its own bread oven.

Outside you will also find your own private pool, set in an old olive grove. While you are gently doing your laps, you will be able to see the ruins of Castel di Zocco and the largest of three islands in the lake. After a fun splash and swim, you can rinse off under the outdoor shower or in the changing room with full bathroom. The garden is completely fenced in and has a 900m path for walking, running and even cycling. Or you could even challenge someone to a game of table tennis in a shaded spot, with full views of the lake.

If you can drag yourself away from the property, Perugia is just a 20-minutes’ drive away, where you will find plenty of medieval architecture, a Gothic cathedral displaying Renaissance paintings and frescoes, and a host of excellent restaurants. The area is also great for biking and hiking, plus there are golf courses and tennis courts nearby too.

Right in the heart of an old extended family estate, this collection of beautifully converted farm buildings is perfectly placed for a quiet family retreat. Surrounded by old olive groves, the estate still produces extra virgin olive oil. You can take a tour of the oil mill and see the traditional oil presses at work, and taste the oil that they produce.

Lake Trasimeno is within walking distance of the property and is home to a wealth of wildlife and cultural highlights. Here you can rent a boat and explore the area from the water. There are three islands on the lake, including Maggiore Island which remains uninhabited. Polvese Island is of historic interest, and has churches, a monastery and a medieval castle. Guided tours are available if you want to explore more.

Close by is a 13th-century settlement surrounded by strong defensive walls. The town of Magione is a 10-minute drive away and here you can find places to eat and drink.

Culture is strong in this area, and there are a number of festivals to enjoy, from music, theatre, art and ballet. Just a few villages around the lake, the annual outdoors Trasimeno Blues Festival is particularly recommended.

Further afield, the Umbrian capital of Perugia is worth a visit. Just 20-minutes’ drive away, the city is a cultural and artistic hub for the area and is a blend of the old and the new. It has lots of bars and cafes, alongside its Etruscan, medieval and Gothic architecture. Got a sweet tooth? There’s an annual chocolate festival every October.

Drive for 40 minutes and you will be in Assisi, where you can enjoy tours of St Francis Basilica, balsamic vinegar tastings and caves where medieval hermits spent their days.

Thanks to its location, the area is good for biking, trekking, walking and horse riding. The gentle hills and magnificent scenery will help create lasting memories for you and your family.

Region

Umbria has best of Italy to offer: rolling landscapes, wine, beautiful towns and villages, olive oil, expansive lakes and the food, glorious food. A holiday here can be as lazy, active, cultured and as delicious as you like.

This region is scattered with pretty, picturesque villages, while the area has a rich cultural heritage. From thermal pools to medieval cathedrals and olive oil museum, Umbria has an intriguing amount of history to discover.

Both Rome and Florence are accessible within a day trip, while the closest towns of interest would be Orvieto, the old town which is a fascinating series of winding streets, piazzas and a colourful weekly market. 

History lovers will be spoilt - from the first century Roman amphitheatres to the twelfth-century duomos, to the fourteenth-century hilltop fortresses,  the glut of remnants from the medieval and Bronze Age that punctuate the region is impressive.
