Perched on a hilltop in the green country side of Umbria one will discover this spectacular new built villa, finished in June 2010. The house is fully local stone exposed (8 sleeps) and has a highly modern top design interior. Inside there are 4 separate bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large living room with open fireplace and separate kitchen. The house has a floor cooling system which makes the house very comfortable in Summer. The property enjoys a large private garden of 4500 sqm and has its own (heated) swimming pool (10 x 5 meters). In every single spot the views are vast and extremely beautiful, towards towns like Greppolischieto, Panicale, hillsides and of course Lake Trasimeno itself.
The property is absolutely privately and quietly though not remotely located at 2 kilomters distance from the centre of Piegaro, at comfortable distance from a small number of similar quality independent houses and villas.
Casa Azzurra is under Exclusive SpecialUmbria Property Management.
