Ein umbrischer Traum

  • 5 of 5

Neben einem Naturschutzgebiet und in der wunderbaren umbrischen Landschaft liegt das Ferienhaus Casa Chiara. Es hat einen „parkgroßen“ und sehr gepflegten und komplett umzäunten Garten. Für Blumenliebhaber ein Traum. Jeden zweiten Tag kommt morgens ein Gärtner und kümmert sich darum. Eine liebe „Hauspflegerin“ wechselt einmal die Woche die Bettwäsche, Handtücher und reinigt die Bäder und Schlafzimmer. (Sie spricht nur italienisch, aber die Tochter kam als englischsprechende Unterstützung bei der Schlüsselübergabe mit). Das schöne Steinhaus ist für zwei Familien sehr gut geeignet. Im ersten Stock befinden sich die Schlafzimmer mit zwei Doppelzimmern, zwei Kinderzimmern und zwei Bädern. Im Erdgeschoß ist ein großer Wohnraum, Esszimmer, ein weiteres Badezimmer und noch die großzügige Küche mit einem angrenzenden kleinen Raum für Waschmaschine, Spülmaschine etc.

Wir sind bei schlechtem Wetter angekommen und die ersten zwei Tage waren regnerisch. Somit empfanden wir das Haus auch sehr kühl und ungemütlich. Es ist einfach sehr groß. Aber es wurde schlagartig heiß und damit bot das Haus innen eine angenehme Kühle. Und wir haben uns es dann einfach in der geräumigen Küche gemütlich gemacht. Insgesamt haben wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Die fünf Kinder im Alter zwischen zwei und acht Jahren hatten reichlich Platz auf dem ganzen Gelände und natürlich viel Spaß mit dem großen Pool. Das Haus ist sehr sehr empfehlenswert für Menschen, die einfach gerne weit weg von jedem Trubel sein möchten und Ruhe genießen können. Der nächste größere Supermarkt ist in ca. 20 Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort Urlaub machen. Und eigentlich wollten wir gar nicht weg.

Eccellenza sotto tutti i punti di vista

  • 5 of 5

Decisamente una delle migliori case in cui siamo mai stati. Molto spaziosa ( eravamo 4 adulti e 5 bambini/ragazzi ! ), sia l'interno che l'esterno: il soggiorno è veramente spazioso, con un grande camino per riscaldare l'ambiente e l'anima; la sala da pranzo con un tavolo molto grande intorno al quale siamo stati comodissimi in nove; la cucina molto attrezzata con barbecue e lavastoviglie; le camere da letto spaziose. Tutta la casa è illuminata da tantissime finestre che si affacciano su un bellissimo panorama a 360°. Tutto molto pulito. Gli esterni poi sono la ciliegina sulla torta: veramente molto ben tenuti, con una piscina molto ampia e circa otto ettari tra prato e bosco. E anche se noi ci siamo stati per capodanno abbiamo potuto apprezzarli tantissimo, sopratutto nelle bellissime passeggiate fatte nei dintorni. Buona la posizione, anche se un po fuori mano, è a un ora, un'ora e mezza al massimo, da gran parte delle città e dei borghi più belli dell'Umbria e della Toscana. Gentilissimo e disponibile il proprietario. Veramente un'esperienza eccellente.

Une maison magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Le site où est situé la maison est magnifique et conforme à la description. Un léger bémol, la cuisine manque d'équipement éléctro ménager (type batteur), et le mobilier de jardin est plutôt en fin de vie... il manque des transates.

Nous y retournerons malgré cela certainement.

  • 4 of 5

"We spent a good time there. We were 2 families (4 children).

The villa is old but nice and comfortable: 4 large bedrooms, 3 nice & modern bathrooms, kitchen, living room and diner room are OK too. Equipment is OK (except may be an old fashion TV).

Outdoor equipment: nice and wide garden. Very nice swimming pool, excepted biting insects around (wasps).

Environment: very quiet area in a nice northern part of Umbria (forest, cypress and small castles on the top of the hills…). Basic Shopping at 10mn, supermarket at 20mn. Nice villages to visit (Preggio, 5/10mn), Trasimena Lake (20 mn), nice towns: Cortona (25 mn) Perugia (50mn), Assisi (1h10), Siena (1h30)."
