Casa Refogliano


With this magnificient view you want to stay at the pool all day! This house is a lovely place for families, especially with children.


This truly beautifully located country villa, located in the unspoilt Umbrian hills was finished in April 2016, under Project Management of SpecialUmbria. The fully local stone exposed country house (8-10 sleeps) and large private swimming pool (6 x 12 meters) are located in the middle of a green area consisting of garden and old olive grove. The property is entirely privately positioned and has a spacious living room which opens to a high quality kitchen made by local carpenter with large stove and modern appliances, four bedrooms of which one has a unique hand made bunk bed for 4 children/young adults and three bathrooms. A large porch enjoys spectacular views towards towns like Montepulciano, Città della Pieve, Panicale, Cortona and even more important Lake Trasimeno with the Tuscan mountains in the back. Really special is the traditional Pizza oven with BBQ just next to the house.

The style of the house can be described as a good mix between the classic Umbrian building style and modern elements, which gives the house a real modern design feeling. The Dutch owners love Dutch design, which means that there are some nice items by designers like Marcel Wanders and Piet Hein Eek, but also the unique woodburner by Weltevree is a real statement in the living area. 

Casa Refogliano is featured in Ville & Casali, May 2017. It is also featured in Alexandra Korey's Life, Art and Travel Blog ARTTRAV.

Casa Refogliano is under Exclusive SpecialUmbria Property Management.
