Sitting in 150 acres of stunning Umbrian countryside, Villa Pereto offers comfort and style in original stone-built houses with antique terracotta floors. The property, dating back to the 17th century, was carefully refurbished 10 years ago and consists of 3 buildings - the main villa which is home to the lovely owners and the two farm buildings, the Stables and the Hay Barn, that have been turned in to great holiday accommodation. A fabulous swimming pool is exclusive to the guests of these houses and offers panoramic views of the entire valley making it a rather special spot for your dip!
The Stables (4 guests): The entrance to the Stables opens in to a pretty and spacious living room with open fireplace, dining area and the very well-equipped kitchen. There are 2 double bedrooms and one bathroom all accessed by a wooden staircase
The Hay Barn (6 guests): This larger property is home to 3 double bedrooms, one with ensuite bathroom, a family bathroom, a living room featuring an open fireplace and a magnificent window offering stunning views of the hills surrounding the property. A fully equipped fitted kitchen will thrill those wishing to try their hands at rustling up some local fare and, to the side of the house there is a covered patio, ideal for al-fresco dining.
Both of these converted outbuildings are decorated with warm and natural countryside colours and furnished with rustic yet elegant furniture. They are fully equipped with kitchen and tableware, including a set of wine tasting glasses, stereo, free internet access, washing machine, dishwasher and independent heating system
The beautifully kept gardens lead down to the truly inviting pool where there is a canopy over a large dining table enabling guests to enjoy snacks and leisurely meals poolside. Should you wish to be a little more energetic, you can try your hand at a game of boules or practice some archery. There are also 6 bikes available permitting you to explore the local area under your own steam - the village of Montone is just a 5km ride away!
Should you be able to tear yourselves away from this idyllic setting, there are plenty of wonderful places to visit. Perugia, Cortona, Gubbio and Castiglion Fiorentino are all great days out permitting you to taste some of the local life along with some fabulous local food and wine.
