In the rolling hills between Castiglione del Lago in Umbria and Chiusi in Tuscany, Villa Serena is surrounded by farmland, in total tranquility. The nearest neighbor is the farmer who has worked the land here for generations. There are several wine canteens around. Grapes are grown on the domain of the villa and ripen into excellent wines in the private canteen.
At Villa Serena, you can completely relax after a day out in Umbria or Tuscany. The swimming pool that offers cooling on hot summer days is 5 by 12 meters and is from 1.20 to 2.5 meters deep.
There is an extensive kitchen with a dishwasher, gas stove (and 1 electric plate), and a large refrigerator. In a separate room are the washing machine, dryer, and an extra refrigerator with a freezer. Near the kitchen are the spacious dining room and a sitting room with a fireplace. From here you can go to the private patio with a palm tree on the south. Here you have a view of the garden with olives and fruit trees. From the living and dining room, you also have access to the covered north-facing terrace with a panoramic view over the green hills, Lake Trasimeno, and Castiglione del Lago.
On the first floor are 4 bedrooms, two of which have a private bathroom with a shower. The other two share a bathroom with a bath and a separate toilet. The bedrooms are connected via a spacious hall where a second sitting room has been created. Here is a fireplace and a smart TV.
