La Quercia

Occupying a stunning position overlooking a wooded valley, this is a wonderful retreat for families or groups of friends

La Quercia is a beautiful property that includes a restored farmhouse and a converted hay barn, set into a forest clearing on the side of a valley near the medieval village of Preggio. The houses are built of local stone with typical Umbrian clay roof tiles and interiors designed with Scandinavian simplicity, sharing incredible views over the hills to the north of Lake Trasimeno.

The main house is a two-storey building with a single-level extension and conservatory. A former hay barn is set about thirty metres further down the hill and has been converted into a one-bedroom guest house on two storeys, renovated to the same standard as the main property. The infinity pool is a little way beyond and has uninterrupted views across the wooded hills.

La Quercia has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a kitchen and dining area in each property, a large sitting room in the main farmhouse and a conservatory-style winter garden room in each building, as well as technical rooms, a private pool and two terraces.



Main house: four first-floor bedrooms as well as one on the ground floor that is currently used as a living room. Guest house: one bedroom on the ground floor.


Main house: all en-suite including four on the first floor. Three of these have a shower and the fourth has a shower and a bath. The ground-floor bedroom has an en-suite shower and there is a downstairs guest toilet.
Guest house: en-suite shower room.


Main house: a large fitted kitchen with an island, a dining area and two sets of double doors to outside. Guest house: a smaller fitted kitchen with space for a dining table

Living room

Main house: the large sitting room has a wood-burning stove and double doors that lead through to a glass-walled conservatory. Guest house: there is a separate glass-walled winter garden room, too, with views on to the pool area.

Other rooms

Inside the main entrance is a large hallway with a guest cloakroom, space for built-in cupboards and the stairs to the first floor. There is a technical/utility room behind the kitchen, and garden storage which is accessed from outside. There is a technical room on the lower ground floor of the guest house.



Beyond the guest house the ground slopes gently down to the large, oval pool (60sqm) with an infinity edge overlooking the valley. The area around the pool is paved and there is a wooden pool house with a changing area. Both houses have their own private terrace and there is space for at least seven cars in front of the main house. The private grounds are mostly wooded but include a terraced olive grove and open fields.


There is mains electricity and a private well for water, as well as large storage tanks. There is under-floor heating throughout both buildings.
