The simplicity of Fontana’s design and its wonderful location between the pretty towns of Piegaro and Panicale as well as the city of Perugia make for a fabulous property full of promise

Fontana lies in the gently rolling Umbrian hills less than half an hour from Perugia and just fifteen car minutes from Piegaro and Panicale. Basic services can be found in the nearest hamlets Pietrafitta and Castiglion Fosco.

Fontana's beautiful location in unspoilt countryside comes with stunning views on the so called Val Nestore, a charming green valley in the rolling hills just south of Lake Trasimeno. From the house one enjoys direct views on the Castle of Gaiche which construction dates back to early 1300.

The property has been very recently built, currently set up as two apartments with separate outside entrance doors, still internally connected via a dividing door. The whole house can be further customised to your own specification. The lateral space makes for comfortable and easy living, with a mezzanine floor and a basement that offer further customisable space.

Outside, the large garden has been landscaped but there is plenty of room to do more, including putting in a swimming pool. There is further land for sale in the immediate vicinity, by separate agreement.

This is an exciting opportunity to further personalise a brand new property in a superb location.

Please find here more information on finding and buying real estate property in Italy.



There are four good-sized double bedrooms on the ground floor.


The bathrooms have showers and are tiled in different colour schemes.


The kitchen is located in the double height part of the living room. While currently more a kitchenette, with just a sink, a hob and a fridge, there is scope to put in a proper, larger kitchen within the same space, keeping the incredible view from the windows and double doors. It would also be possible to install a further prep kitchen.

Living room

The living room is a large ground-floor space with a big fireplace, and windows and double doors looking out of both sides of the house. The area that currently houses the kitchen and dining table has a double height ceiling while a mezzanine level reaches above the other side of the room and is accessed by a wooden staircase.

Other rooms

The stairs from the living room lead to a mezzanine that could be used as an office, a study or another sitting room. There is a door from this open area that leads to a small attic with two windows and a tiled floor. There is also a cellar below the house that could be used as a pool or technical room for any future swimming pool.



The large, fenced garden that surrounds the house is on different levels and while it is very presentable in its current state, there is scope for further landscaping. Depending on the view, there are several potential spots for a pool, should the new owner wish to put one in.


The property is hooked up to mains water and electricity while the sewage system uses a septic tank. Heating and hot water are currently supplied by an LPG system and boiler, with the potential to install further systems, like a biomass boiler. On a corner piece of the land a spring is located where water may be taken and led to a concrete water tank, embarking a starting point for further drilling of a well for garden irrigation.
