Posabile


The clever, careful and colourful restoration of this beautiful property has resulted in a house that bends to the wishes of its guests, making it a total dream for families with small children but just as wonderful for a party of adults.


Sitting proudly in the unspoilt Umbrian hills, not far from Lake Trasimeno, Posabile is a solid stone building dating from the 16th century, that has been meticulously restored by the Special Umbria team.

Beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and brick floors show the rich, rural history of the building, while poured concrete, glass and jewel-coloured fabrics set the stage for the property’s present and future.  The interior design blends natural materials such as the reclaimed wooden cupboards and bedheads with modern comforts such as floor cooling and high-spec showers.

The flexibility of the property’s design means that the house caters for all ages. Children will adore the enormous bed that sleeps four and the vast playroom, while adults can cook in peace and relax in comfort, cosying themselves away from any noise or mess. Outside, the 50cm-deep toddler pool is next to the main pool, both heated, and beside shady double daybeds for post-swim snoozes.

Posabile, as its name suggests, is a property full of possibility. It is exclusively managed by Special Umbria.

In March 2016 Posabile was featured in Ville&Casali.
In September 2017 Posabile was featured in Tara.

Rooms description


Bedrooms

There are five en suite bedrooms, with vast beds made from reclaimed wood, memory-foam mattresses and top-quality bed linen. Master suite: a spacious, loft-style bedroom with an emperor bed and an open- plan bathroom with a shower and a freestanding copper bath. Bedroom 2: a superking bed and a separate en suite. Bedroom 3: a twin room with a separate en suite. Bedroom 4: a superking bed with a separate en suite. Bedroom 5: an enormous bed (280cm x 210cm), suitable for four children or two adults, plus a separate en suite. Two extra high-quality single beds can be added – one in the master suite and the other in the twin room (EUR 250 per bed per week).

Bathrooms

All the bedrooms have en suite shower rooms where the simple resin shower walls and floors are complemented by high-performance fixtures and fittings, including heated mirrors. In the master suite the bathroom is open-plan with a copper bath, while bathroom 5 also has a bath as well as a shower.

Kitchen

The spacious kitchen occupies the former barn and has been built in a modern industrial style with reclaimed wood from centuries-old shutters for the cupboard doors, poured concrete floors and open shelving. There is a wooden butcher’s block-style island and generous workspace making cooking together easy. It is expertly equipped with high-spec appliances including a large oven with five-burner gas hob, two double-door American-style fridge-freezers and two dishwashers. The dining area is at the entrance end of the kitchen, overlooking the living area below. The large wooden table, with its built-in seating and colourful cushions on one side, seats twelve.

Living rooms

The generous-sized living space, with its exposed stone walls and brick floors, is split into two distinct rooms: a cosy sitting area and also a library-style space with a large fireplace, a bar corner and huge, deep club chairs. Both rooms are full of rich colours, fabulous textures and industrial-style lighting. There is a hifi system and Chromecast for streaming internationally. For families with young children, the highlight at Posabile is the playroom: a vast space with a brilliant and extensive soft-play area on two levels, guaranteed to keep even the busiest bees happy for hours.

Other rooms

There is a separate toilet on the ground floor and a laundry cupboard with washing machine and tumble dryer. Less mundane and much more beautiful is the grand piano - tuned, of course - in the spacious hallway. There is sheet music available.

Outside

Posabile has two heated pools. Positioned just above the house, there is the main (12mx6m) pool and then a shallow toddler pool just next to it (3mx6m). The views over the hills towards Lake Trasimeno can be appreciated from the double daybeds in the shade of the pergola, or there is a lounge area outside the kitchen. The wooden yoga deck is a peaceful spot for sun salutations, there is table tennis for the more competitively minded, and along one side of the house is a shaded dining area. Younger members of the party have not been forgotten: there is a trampoline, and to complement the incredible soft play area indoors, there is a wooden adventure playground with slides, outdoors. The pool area is fenced and there is also a fenced 50sqm lawn next to the house where small children can play safely.

Your villa and Covid-19


To prevent any possible spread of Covid-19 and to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday, all our villas are cleaned to the highest standard possible, and according to the latest Italian health and safety regulations.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request
  • For the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
