Casa In Toscana


La Palombella

Vigne di Narni
La Palombella is a pretty refurbished small villa with airconditioning and WIFI, of 100 sq m in the Umbrian countryside. It's very close to the small village of Vigne di Narni (with groceries about 400-500 metres from the house). There is also a riding ground about 4 km away. The villa which is 10 km from Narni, 50 km from Spoleto and 75 km from Rome. In less than an hour's drive you can reach the towns of Orvieto (65 km), Todi (55 km), Tuscania (70 km), Assisi and Perugia (90 km). The lakes Piediluco, Bolsena, Vico and Bracciano are within a fifty-km radius.

When you get there, you will see a stone gate with a roof and with 4 marvellous cypresses around it!

The gate opens into a large garden (7,000 sq m) where there is a B-B-Q, a wood-burning oven, and a huge cherry tree that the owner's grandfather planted when Sandro was a child.You will be able to have your meals outside especially in spring and summer. Terracotta tiles are everywhere, both in the garden and inside the house.

As soon as you get into the large living room with a wooden beam ceiling, the good quality furniture, the sofa bed and a big fireplace will leave you breathless. A little further, to the right of the fireplace, there is the kitchen, which has an electric oven, a stove and a dish washer. A French door in the kitchen leads to a small terrace with a big wisteria plant all around it. By going down a few steps you can get to the back garden, to the swimming pool and the tennis ground.

You get to the two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with twin beds) and to the bathroom (with a shower) from the living room.

The house has central heating. There are some bikes and a washing machine in the owner's garage.

The tennis ground is in front of the villa and is surrounded by olive trees, cypresses and pines.

The swimming pool (13x7x1,8) is beautiful. It is surrounded by pines, paved with terracotta tiles and, as located on a higher level, it offers a splendid view on the countryside and the valley below. Sandro, the owner (who respects privacy a lot) never uses the pool when the guests are there.

La Palombella is a dream place : you will surely rent it more than once!!
