It's the perfect combination between tradition, real Italian country life feeling and the style of today. Granarco is an ideal holiday location for families with or without children.

Granarco is a traditional Umbrian farm built in 1534 AD. Granarco was completely refurbished recently and transferred into true authentic Unbrian holiday home. The ideal combination between the traditional Umbrian feeling and the modern lifestyle. In summer 2019 a new pool was completed next to the spacious porch, overlooking the wonderful views. Granarco guarantees a unique experience and is something you won't find anywhere else in Umbria. 

The house is around 220 sqm and offers 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, 2 separate kitchens and a sitting and seperate dining room. The gardens with olive trees offer the best views over the Umbrian countryside. Attached to the house two porches are the ideal places for summer lunches and dinners. You will enjoy every evening the magnificent sunset in front of you while sitting at the large wooden table. Granarco has a spacious infinity private garden, with old olive trees and no disturbance but only beautiful views. The pool (12 x 4 meters) has an infinity feeling as well with only free views over the entire valley. Unique! 

The interior is done in a modern/traditional light and cozy style with a lot of colors, old original interior pieces combined with modern elements. The house is filled with books, magazines and everything that makes it a real HOME.

Granarco is dominantly positioned on an important hillside near Lake Trasimeno, enjoying spectacular vast views to Tuscany (Montepulciano) and lake Trasimeno (Panicale). The old Medieval town of Piegaro is only 2 kilometers away, where the A1 Motorway exits for Rome and Florence only 20 minutes drive.

The refurbishing project was done by Special Umbria and is under our exclusive Special Umbria Property Management, which means that we will take care of our guests ourselves during their stay.

Granarco and its refurbishing project was featured in Méditerranée (May 2017).
