Welcome to Trasimeno

They all have an independent entrance and a private outdoor space.

Podere Pescia is located in the Umbria region between Lake Trasimeno and Tuscany, where the countryside is slightly hilly, with a splendid view on Lake Trasimeno and the surrounding medieval villages: Castiglione del Lago, Paciano, Panicale and Cortona.

Sings of ancient times are visible in the stone and brick masonry, in the pigeon turret and in the small bell tower embellishing the farmhouse precincts.

Flats are extremely comfortable with terracotta floors, wooden trusses on the ceiling, a fireplace and antique furniture charming the guests’ eyes with the signs of a glorious past for them to enjoy their holidays in a relaxing and exclusive atmosphere.

On level one: a king-size bedroom, a bathroom with shower and an ante-bathroom.

Nicely restored farmhouse with antique furnishings - beautiful setting in Umbria

  • 4 of 5

This property is a very authentically restored farm house. It is clean and well maintained. Our unit had two large bedrooms, each with a good sized bathroom and modern fixtures. There are lovely views of the countryside from the bedroom windows. During our visit at the end of May the grounds were covered with beautiful roses and other flowers. Giancarlo (the owner) knows the area very well and gave us good advice on local activities and restaurants. Towels, bedding, toilet paper and soap for the dishwasher, sink and washing machine were provided.

I want to stress that our experience was a good one. To be fair to others contemplating a visit, I will list some things to consider.

* If you require reliable internet connection, this is not the place for you. Internet is intermittent and not available in each unit but at a public spot in the garden.

* When we arrived on May 28, the pool was not open. If that is important to you, inquire before booking.

* We had a hiccup with the washer not working on day 1 of our visit but this was resolved by day 2. No clothes dryer except for Mother Nature's sunshine and a clothesline.

* Bring your own hairdryer.

Owner's Response: In the internet era people ,if they want to bring back pleasant,interesting memories,need more than ever good advices.A littel church in the country, a domed church mentioned in guides with a few words but a place were you could stay a long time watching the frescoed ceilings,the friendly baker , the antique market etc make the stay different,to be remembered.To be called by name and not just by the number of the room/apartment ,to talk about job , live , family,cuisine,politics is a way to get in touch with local life.

Lovely property with very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property and we have a wonderful stay. Whole place immaculate. Giancarlo could not have been more helpful listing suggested tours complete with a map and even helping us to arrange a hire car from the local Fiat garage which was great value. Beautiful clean pool and lovely location.

Schöne Unterkunft als Ausgangspunkt für die Erkundung der Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die größte Ferienwohnung für eine Woche Anfang August bei sehr hohen Außentemperaturen gemietet und uns jederzeit wohl gefühlt. Für das tägliche Entspannen am Pool, die nachmittäglichen Ausflüge in die Orte der weiteren Umgebung und erholsame Stunden ist die kleine Ferienanlage sehr gut geeignet. Giancarlo ist ein hilfsbereiter, netter Gastgeber mit vielen Tipps zu Kultur und Speisen im Umkreis. Gerne wieder !!!

Un véritable enchantement !

  • 5 of 5

La location Staro Polska est très confortable, avec une literie de très bonne qualité, dans une propriété très bien entretenue par les propriétaires.

Giancarlo et Ursula sont charmants, aux petits soins pour leurs locataires. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié les différents aménagements autour de la piscine (transats, table sous pergola, fauteuils...). La localisation permet de découvrir facilement l'Ombrie et la Toscane. Et si vous voulez passer une journée à Rome, n'hésitez pas à prendre le train de 6h17 à Castiglione, vous serez en plein cœur de Rome 2h plus tard.

Une petite pensée pour Matteo, le chat de la maison, très affectueux.
