Wide views from a typical Umbrian farmhouse located on a natural reserve with use of tennis court

Set in a clearing open woodland and surrounded by ancient olive trees, Pasticcico is the most private and peaceful of heavens.

Pasticcico is one of the villas on Racchiusole, a gated country estate of approximately 300 acres set amongst the rolling Umbrian hills. Derelict and abandoned when found, six former farmhouses, all at a very comfortable distance, have been lovingly restored into luxury villas. Pasticcico was designed and restored (2005) so as to maximize its child-friendliness; lawns surround the house and the large pool has a wide tiled area all around it. Linked to the main pool, but separated by a small wooden bridge, there is a safe paddling pool.

The absolute plus of this house is that is part of a country estate, but not having the feeling of neighboorhood.

Pasticcico has a large living room, kitchen and four bedrooms and bathrooms, all ensuite.

The estate hosts a tennis court for exclusive use to the estate's guests.



4 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. One bedroom currently is equipped with 2 bunk beds, as it is very large and perfect for children.


4 ensuite bathrooms, 1 separate toilet on ground floor.


Very modern kitchen is present with professional equipment and a french door opening onto the covered pergola. The kitchen is at the end of the spacious living room from which it is separated by an arch. This creates the sense of a big space, very comfortable to have access to the main dining table.

Living room

Very large living room perfect for family reunions on the ground floor. On the ground floor there is also a dining room, which opens onto both sides of the garden. On the first floor there is a large area between the rooms that can be easily turned in a second living room/reading area or in an extra bedroom

Other rooms

From the kitchen, there is a door which leads to the utility room/technical room where are currently located all the facilities that serve the house such as laundry machine and tumble drier.



Swimming pool 12m x 6m plus toddler pool. Very well kept garden with vast variety of flowers and English lawn.


The property has floor heating as well as a private well.


Class: G

Pasticcico is situated at 750 metres altitude in wooded hills and open meadows about 17 km south west of the town of Umbertide and 20 km north west of Perugia, the capital of Umbria. Happily, even on the hottest days, the breeze at this altitude makes air conditioning both unnecessary and unwanted. Nearest shops you can find in San Giovanni del Pantano (7 km) and wider offerings in Mantignana (10 km).


Perugia International Airport, which is little more than half an hour away from Racchiusole. Airports at Rome, Pisa, Florence, Bologna and Ancona are all roughly two hours away. Wonderfully comfortable and fast trains link Perugia to Rome, Bologna, Milan, and other major cities throughout Europe. For information visit Trenitalia.


The most important cities in Umbria and Tuscany with all facilities for shopping, culture and art are within reach: (wine in) Montepulciano (50 km), Castiglione del Lago (28 km), Arezzo (50 Km), Citta di Castello (40 km), Siena (88 km), Florence (120 km), Perugia (30 km), Gubbio (53 km), Todi (85 km), Orvieto (110 km), Spoleto (105 km), Montefalco / Bevagna (75 km), Deruta (60 km), Assisi (65 km) and of course Rome (190 km).

Leisure & activities

Tennis – located centrally to the villas, our Astroturf court is a delight to play on. With such commanding views, a recent Canadian guest, who has played professionally all over the world, said he had never played on a finer court. Golf – the renowned Antognolla Championship Course, designed by Robert Trent-Jones (the Picasso of golf course designers) is only a few kilometres away. In a sensationally beautiful setting, it is a challenging course, so perhaps not ideal for novices although there are driving ranges and putting greens. Walking and running – Racchiusole has miles of its own tracks throughout the more than 300 acres, but don’t expect too much on the flat. Very close too are the reasonably straightforward Monte Acuto and Monte Tezio climbs. Slightly further afield there are many pre-planned walks throughout most of Umbria. Sailing – Lago di Trasimeno is described as the largest lake in the Italian peninsula (the northern lakes deemed to be outside the peninsula!). As well as being a fascinating place to visit, with many bars and restaurants, a sandy beach and island visits, sailing dinghies and windsurfers can be rented.
