The exquisite craftsmanship inside the villa is matched by the incredible views and fabulous pool outside, making this the perfect place for adults and children alike.
Casa Refogliano is a stunning property that hugs the contours of the unspoilit Umbrian hills, close to the pretty town of Piegaro. Designed for a Dutch family, the build was project managed by Special Umbria and finished in 2016.
The traditional exterior uses local stone, and natural materials and handcrafted pieces feature throughout the property, including wooden beams, cotto floors and marble worktops. The interior décor is welcoming and joyful, with pieces by Dutch designers such as Marcel Wanders and Piet Hein Eek giving a nod to the owners’ heritage.
The ground floor has a spacious living area with French windows out to the veranda. A large dining table comfortably seats ten while a Dutch log burner by Weltevree makes for a cosy seating area. There is also a partially separate telly nook with a big sofa. The main room opens onto the high-spec kitchen that was made by a local carpenter and includes a large oven, a butcher’s block island, French windows out to the garden and all the modern appliances you need.
There is a double bedroom downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs, including a room that sleeps four in beautiful, big, solid handcrafted bunk beds, and two doubles.
Outside, the large veranda overlooking the pool has plenty of space for dining and there is an outdoor pizza oven and a BBQ nearby. The spectacular view stretches towards Montepulciano, Città della Pieve, Panicale, Cortona, Lake Trasimeno and the Tuscan hills beyond. The heated pool has sunbeds surrounding it and a shaded lounge area and a pétanque court next to it. The property is entirely private. It has its own terraced garden and is surrounded by an old olive grove yet is close to the pretty town of Piegaro.
