Casa Benazzone is nestled amongst the rolling green hills of Umbria. The house, originally built in medieval times, has been completely refurbished to a high standard, retaining the original wood beams, flagstone floors and exposed stone walls. With panoramic views over a pristine valley and the village of Civitella Benazzone it is easy to conjure up images of a bygone era. Much of the furniture has been crafted by local artisans to further enhance this luxury refurbishment. Despite the age of the building it offers all the modern amenities you will require. The extensive grounds offer ample space for outdoor summer living. Relax on the terrace or watch the sunset from the infinity pool with a glass of Sagrantino or Montefalco Rosso, to name but two of the highly esteemed local wines. Situated equidistant from Perugia and Umbertide this is an ideal base to visit the numerous etruscan towns in the area. In around 30 minutes you can be at Lake Trasimeno with its numerous beaches and watersports. For somewhere more historic it is well worth visiting the hill top town of Assisi, birthplace of patron saint St Francis. Here you will find great shops, restaurants and churches that trace their history back to the 13th century.
In a peaceful countryside setting with picturesque views, this is a comfortable house. It enjoys a good location, being just a short distance from the historic town of Perugia and decorated throughout in traditional Umbrian style. This is an ideal getaway for a family or group of friends who want to be in a peaceful setting yet still within easy driving distance of the many fascinating towns in this region. There are fantastic panoramic views across the Umbrian countryside. The owner is a young man, who speaks fluent English, is available to help clients or to arrange different services.
