Wonderful in 2012 completely restored wine estate with brand new amazing pool and new tennis court, between Castiglione del Lago and Cortona. Exclusive rental location for 10-12 guests. 

Here you will be part of wine production, but at the same time have all privacy you would like to have during your holiday. Podere Saltatempo is idealy positioned between Umbria and Tuscany with Cortona and Montepulciano very near and also the Lake Trasimeno with all water sport facilities. 

The owners restored the farm in such a way that you still will have the feeling that you are staying in a house full of history but at the same time you will get all luxury you can imagine like: most modern bathrooms you can imagine, unique pool with stone exposed walls inside the water, pool lounge area with bar and kitchen, very high quality new tenniscourt etc. 

This makes your holiday something very special with no worries at all...and very good wines immediately near to you. 

 

Why this is Special
This is the ideal combination between living at a centuries old farm and all modern facilities. The owners tried to keep the spirit of the farm of the family and did it in a very special way.

Outside
The house is part of and working wine estate. This means that once and then you might see or hear some activities related to that. In general your privacy will be completely respected. The property is sheltered from the "outside world" by mature oak woodland and affords complete privacy and quiet. On the grounds there is a natural pond inhabited by tenches and carps where angling is possible (with one's own equipment). Around the house there are many sunny and shaderelax areas and also a nice roof covered terrace, which was once a barn and was left like it was before, without any restoration. The pool area is something really special. A wonderful infinity pool with stone exposed wall and next to that a Pool house with outdoor kitchenette, cloakroom and changing room and also a very nice lounge area with sofas. This is special because the owners kept the old barn and only made modern changes on the inside. Near the pool is also the brand new private tenniscourt with latest technology Mantoflex. There is also a fresh water natural Pond outside. On the grounds there is also a natural pond inhabited by tenches and carps where fishing is possible (with one's own equipment).
