Podere Castel Rigone
- SQM 260
This old farmhouse, recently restored, stands alone on its hill surrounded by age old olive trees and an open view all around. Higher up the next hill is the village of Castel Rigone, in the valley one can see the first houses of Magione and on clear days one can even see the tops of the Sibillini mountains.
This comfortable private villa is a very spacious vacation villa in the midst of olive trees and green hills. The restored farmhouse is only four kilometers from Magione which is at Lake Trasimeno, and the highway connecting Siena with Perugia. An ideal starting point to explore Umbria but it is also easy to make some trips to Tuscany from here. Perugia is at 20 minutes driving whilst one drives to Siena in one hour.
There are five bedrooms in total, sharing three bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a large living room. The house can sleep 8+2 guests.
There is a terrace outside in the shade of old olive trees. From here as well as from the large pool a bit down the hill, the views are stunning and one only hears the birds singing and the occasional tractor working the land in the distance.
The pool is 6 meters by 12 meters and from 0,90 to 1,50 meters deep. There are 4 sun beds and 5 sun chairs.
There is free wi-fi, parking on the premises, a pizza oven and a weber barbecue.
An Italian couple from the area Mauro and Luciana can come and cook for you. It's highly recommended if you like a full Italian cooking experience to book an evening with them.
The pool is open from mid May until the end of September.
The outside staircase leads up to the kitchen which has a large table and chairs around, an open fireplace, a large fridge with freezer. One cooks on gas and there is an electrical oven. The kitchen is an open space and the centre of the house. To the left of this kitchen a few steps go down to the living room with television and dvd, comfortable sofas and next to it a bathroom with shower and washing machine. There are doors leading directly into the garden.
To the other side of the kitchen is a bed room with a double bed and a very spacious bathroom with large shower. This bedroom is directly connected with another smaller bedroom. Here is a single bed for children only and a cot.
Going back to the kitchen a staircase leads up to the first floor with a long open corridor. Straight ahead is a large bedroom with a double bed and connected to this bedroom is the third bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. These two bedrooms are suitable for a couple with children or a group of children all together.
