This truly beautifully located country villa, located in the unspoilt Umbrian hills was finished in April 2016, under Project Management of SpecialUmbria. The fully local stone exposed country house (8-10 sleeps) and large private swimming pool (6 x 12 meters) are located in the middle of a green area consisting of garden and old olive grove. The property is entirely privately positioned and has a spacious living room which opens to a high quality kitchen made by local carpenter with large stove and modern appliances, four bedrooms of which one has a unique hand made bunk bed for 4 children/young adults and three bathrooms. A large porch enjoys spectacular views towards the towns of Panicale, Montepulciano, Citta della Pieve and even more important Lake Trasimeno with the Tuscan mountains in the back. Really special is the traditional Pizza oven with BBQ just next to the house.
The style of the house can be described as a good mix between the classic Umbrian building style and modern elements, which gives the house a real modern design feeling. The Dutch owners love Dutch design, which means that there are some nice items by designers like Marcel Wanders and Piet Hein Eek, but also the unique woodburner by Weltevree is a real statement in the living area.

Casa Refogliano is under Exclusive SpecialUmbria Property Management.

- What our clients say
Jackeline T., Eindhoven, the Netherlands (July 2017):
This was our second time in Casa Refogliano. Evenhough there are 10 sleeping places and the house is large, it surrounds you. Beautiful designed (with a Dutch classic: Piet Hein Eek table) and magnificent view! Very well equipped kitchen, everything you need is available and of course a delicious bbq / pizza oven outside.
Recommandation worthy, only downside: you do not want anything else !!!
Andrea, Dorset, United Kingdom (August 2016):
"Refogliano is such an amzing place to stay. The views are stupendous and the house is beautifuly decorated. We have stayed in many holiday rentals over the years but this one was by far the best. We loved everything about it ! The interior design has been done with much thought, it is modern yet comfortable with many cool additions and family friendly too. The kitchen with its enormous rustic island was a dream to prepare food on and the pizza oven we enjoyed using many evenings. We played cards in the lovely snug and the kids spread out their art activites on the long table. We were 8 of us in total with three kids and one teenager and had plenty of space.
The setting is gorgeous. The view from the house and the pool was fantastic, we watched some beautiful sunsets while eating our pizza. We enjoyed visiting all the lovely hilltop towns and villages and some of the bigger towns like Siena and Orvieto are not far.
The managers are very helpful and really helped us with finding the right rental and then gave us great support after our stay.
We could not recomend this house more. Just a warning ... you will NOT want to leave!!! "
