Mazzo was mentioned in February 2019 in The UK Sunday Times as one of the best 50 places to stay in Europe!

In Piegaro, on the border with Tuscany and near Lake Trasimeno, this traditional large country house is divided into 4 apartments with a maximum of privacy. The building is beautifully positioned with amazing views towards Tuscany. The large heated pool (6 x 12 meters) just below the house is overlooking a beautiful vineyard and is only shared with apartment Pozza which is positioned below Mazzo. 

Mazzo is a lovely child friendly home for 6 guests. It consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large loft style living/cooking area, a very spacious terrace with lounge corner and a private garden with a lot of space. Mazzo guarantees a maximum of privacy.

The interior of Mazzo is one of a kind and truly different from what you will normally find in an ordinary holiday apartment. The style can be described as 'shabby chique'. Old looking furniture is combined with modern design and industrial lighting. Old wood has an important role in the entire design, as well as colors, which will be found in the fabrics you will see all around the apartment. The kitchen is very well equipped with large Smeg stove and stand alone colored Smeg fridge. Cooking lovers can enjoy themselves a lot!

Mazzo can be ideal as well for a 2 family holiday as the apartment below owned by the same owners, can be booked at the same time. See the profile of villa Gazza. In this way you will have a  private villa with private pool divided in 2 separate apartments, connected via external stairs, for a total of 12 guests (6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms).

The building is dominantly positioned halfway an important hillside near Lake Trasimeno. Enjoying spectacular vast views to Tuscany (Montepulciano). The small medieval town of Piegaro is only 2 kilometers away where the A1 Motorway (Rome-Florence) is only 20 minutes drive.

This is absolutely something different you won't see anywhere else in Umbria!

Mazzo was built under project management by SpecialUmbria in 2011. The house is under exclusive SpecialUmbria property management.
