In Piegaro, on the border with Tuscany and near Lake Trasimeno, this traditional large country house is divided into 4 apartments. The building is beautifully positioned with amazing views towards Tuscany. Two large pools (each 6 x 12 meters), just below the house are overlooking a vineyard. Every apartment shares one pool with only one other apartment.
GALLO is a lovely apartment for 6 guests. It consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large loft like living/cooking area, a very spacious terrace with lounge corner and a private garden with a lot of space. In fact GALLO has a real private villa feeling.
The interior of GALLO 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!
GALLO can be ideal as well for a 2 family holiday as the apartment below, POZZA, can be booked at the same time. In this way you will have a private villa with private pool divided in 2 seperate apartments, connected via an external stairs, for in total 12 guests (6 bedrooms).
The building is dominantly positioned halfway an important hillside near Lake Trasimeno and Perugia. Enjoying spectacular vast views to Tuscany (Montepulciano). The old 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!
GALLO was built under own management of Special Umbria and was finished in 2012.
