L'arco is part of an traditional Umbrian farm built in 1534 AD. L'arco was completely refurbished recently and transferred into an ideal combination between the traditional Umbrian feeling and the modern lifestyle. L'Arco is something you won't find anywhere else in Umbria. 

L'arco is a very spacious apartment of 100sqm with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, separate kitchen and living room overlooking the Umbrian country side. Attached to the house is a large porch which is an ideal place for summer lunches and diners and where you will enjoy every evening the magnificent sunset. L'Arco has an unique large and private garden, with old olive trees with no disturbance and only beautiful views. The shared pool (only 2 other houses) of 14 x 7 meters is positioned on 1 minute walk from the Apartment. Here you will find comfortable private pool furniture.

The interior is done in a modern/traditional light and cozy style and will be unique in it's kind. 

The apartment is dominantly positioned on an important hillside near Lake Trasimeno, enjoying spectacular vast views to Tuscany (Montepulciano) and lake Trasimeno (Panicale). The old Medieval town of Piegaro is only 2 kilometers away, where the A1 Motorway exits for Rome and Florence only 20 minutes drive.

The refurbishing project was done by Special Umbria. L'Arco will be under exclusive Special Umbria Property Management, which means that we will take care of our guests ourselves during their stay.

L'Arco and its refurbishing project was recently featured in Méditerranée (May 2017).



Why this is Special
It's the ideal combination between tradition, real Italian country life feeling and the style of today. L'Arco is an ideal holiday location for a couple or small family with young children!
What our clients say

June 2018. Alan H. UK: 'The property, the location, the facilities and the view are all memorable. Staff and management are attentive and requests are dealt with immediately. We can not fault a thing - we had a really great holiday - and enjoyed the company from time to time of the 4 legged friends who called around for water and to check that we were fine.'

June 2017, Bas S, Amsterdam: Our stay in L’arco was great. The apartment was very clean, good size and has everything you need. With the amazing views this is a picture perfect location.
