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.

STUNNING!

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled to various parts of Italy over the past seven years and this was by far the best in terms of location, accommodation and Giancarlo, who was the most charming and helpful host.

The property, both inside and out was extremely well maintained and the gardens and pool were idyllic. The location was superb and was within easy reach of all the main towns of interest. , Castiglione was a short drive away and had plenty of restaurants and bars, all offering excellent value for money, service, delicious food and wine.

Giancarlo was amazing. He never stopped working around the gardens but always had time to help us and advice us on places of interest. We will be recommending Podere Pescia to all our friends and relatives and can't wait to return with our family. Thank you Giancarlo

Regards

Pauline & Sean Wood

Owner's Response: After working so long to well maintain the house and the garden it is a great pleasure to have the appreciation of our guests.We give them before the arrival and almost daily advices on places of interests which are not only historical towns but unknown villages,markets,antique markets,village fairs etc.We are of the opinion that a few weeks after the holiday is finished they will not remember many churches or monument but persons or a shop , restaurant , market or how they discovered a little convent will be part of their memories. Grazie Podere Pescia Giancarlo

Sehr schöne Anlage in zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für 14 Tage bei Giancarlo zu Gast, sehr netter und zuvorkommende Gastgeber, sehr schöne Anlage mit tollem Pool, tolle Wohnung mit guter Ausstattung. Sehr sauber schön eingerichtet. Exzellente Lage, nur circa 2-3 km vom Ort entfernt, sehr zentral, viele Sehenswürdigkeiten von Umbrien und der angrenzenden Toskana in unmittelbarer Nähe und gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Wir kommen sicherlich wieder. Einziger Nachteil ist - wie sehr oft in Italien - das mangelhafte WLAN, mit dem es nicht gelingt, Dinge up- oder downzuloaden.

Idyllisch verblijf

  • 4 of 5

Prachtig verblijf met een zeer vriendelijke eigenaar, die gek is op antiek en zo de appartementen ook heeft ingericht. Vraag hem eens naar het meest bijzondere boek dat hij heeft.

Rustig en centraal gelegen om plaatsje in de omgeving te bezoeken, en per trein bv. naar Florence en Rome. Ook naar de andere kant van het meer van Trasimeno is bij goed weer erg mooi.

Wel jammer dat het zwembad in mei nog niet open was, en de wifi kan beter, maar zeker een adres om nog eens terug te komen.

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

Dear Giancarlo,

I had a very pleasant stay of 2 weeks at Podere Pescia in September 2015. Particuarly I enjoyed the well designed and equipped flat, the nice pool and the generous garden as well as the very friendly, warm and helpfull accommodation of the owner. Very interessting his collections displayed in the flat and everywhere around.

The Podere is perfectly situated for trips to historic places and thermal bathes not only round Lago di Trasimeno but also in Umbria/Tuscany and cities like Siena, Firenze and Roma. Thank you very much Giancarlo. Hope to see you again.
