Ponte Rio

Unique modern design, in the middle of the Umbrian countryside and very near to the old city center of Perugia makes this house the perfect place to stay.

Ponte Rio which was once a traditional Umbrian stone farmhouse, just outside the city center of Perugia is now a heaven on earth modern country house in 2018 style. The house has been restored by the owners, two Perugian architects. It was completed early 2018. The owners did a wonderful job! It became the ideal symbiosis between the Umbrian country style and a perfectly designed modern interior with an eye for every single detail. 

Ponte Rio is positioned just below the hillside outside Perugia with views over farmland and woodland which has changed little in generations. The position in an area with party woodlands and party meadows means that even in high summer the house has a lot of shadow and fresh air. Sloping natural gardens terraced with local stone ,and green lawns and olive groves are perfect for unwinding. The owners have thoughtfully placed various ‘al fresco’ areas to catch the best of the house at different times of day. The terraced main dining area outside the house underneath the pergola is perfect for a cool lunch and long dining and there are outside lounge area's to relax.

Inside, the interiors are modern with very original furnishing. The house has plenty of original features. The ground floor has original wooden beams and stone exposed walls throughout, all painted in a white washed color. The floors are in a light color resin which combines perfectly with these traditional elements. The sitting room has plenty of space for stretching out with a good book and the impressive stone fireplace is great for cosying up with a fire out of season. All bedrooms are large yet cosy and furnished with interesting pieces of design and lovely fabrics. The bathrooms are really well designed and provide all comfort necessary.

This is a real ‘get away from it all’ holiday . From the location of the house, so close to the old town of Perugia, but also the motorway to arrive in a short time to well known towns, to the comfortable interiors, everything is designed for maximum relaxation. While away the days may be filled here reading your book by the pool, indulging in locally produced food and night time star-gazing. For those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life there couldn’t be a better spot.

Ponte Rio is 15 minutes from Perugia Airport with direct flights to London, Brussels and Frankfurt.
