In a picturesque spot, set in the middle of the green, rolling hills of Tuoro sul Trasimeno, Umbria, this impressive villa dating back to 1638, was completely renovated in 2004 to a very high standard.

The living room has a fireplace, wooden floor and direct exit out to the sunny roof terrace. There is an open connection with the kitchen, with a fantastic atmosphere and with all necessary amenities including a Boretti stove.
The surface of the living room and kitchen is over 80 sq.m., yet the owners managed to maintain the intimate, homely atmosphere.
On this floor you can also find a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, ideal for guests.
The long, glazed hall from the living room leads to the master bedroom of 25 sq.m., with stairs to the private bathroom on the ground floor.
Every conceivable luxury can be found in this bathroom: the freestanding bathtub, the minimalistic shower, separate toilet room and the custom-made washbasin furniture with wall taps are of unparalleled beauty.
The wooden roof construction, the stucco and the beautiful stone walls create a nice combination with the large windows and the lighting. You will experience the connection with the roof terrace not only from the living room, but also from the long hall and the master bedroom.
The roof terrace enjoys a wooden flooring, outdoor fireplace and wooden panels that work as sun blinds. The view from the terrace is simply breathtaking.
