This is such a special place to stay! The Danish owners discovered this ideal place to built and created in the last few years a dream place on this wonderful location. Covered in the woods, but with amazing views towards lake Trasimeno this is the ideal holiday location. Here you will feel immediately at home.

Villa Ghiandaia is a modern plastered wood house with large glass sections that bring the magnificent panoramic views inside the high-ceilinged rooms and make indoor and outdoor life merge together. Sustainable building solutions and interior design are joined with own design, cool and creative finds, Danish design classics and photographic art.

This recently built house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms gives easily access to 8 guests. The house is extremely comfortable and designed in a very personal way. Here guests can really cook and really enjoy the Italian country life. The pool with infinity feeling, next to the villa, overlooks the whole are and will be the favorite place in summer.

The garden is in fact part of the woods, which give you this special natural feeling. The large trees provide a lot of shadow in hot summer and in the evening its wonderful to have dinner in front of the house looking towards the old town of Preggio, which is a fairytale.
