This new Apartment Gallo was built and interior designed under own management of Special Umbria, completed in May 2012. 

In Piegaro, on the border with Tuscany and near Lake Trasimeno, this traditional large country house is divided into 4 apartments. The building is beautifully positioned with amazing views towards Tuscany. Two large pools (each 6 x 12 meters) belong to the property and are located just below the house, close to a vineyard creating amazing views. Every apartment shares one pool with only one other apartment.

Apartment Gallo is a lovely apartment for 6 guests. It consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large living/cooking area, a very spacious terrace with lounge corner and a private garden with a lot of space. In fact Gallo has a real private villa feeling.

The interior of apartment Gallo is one of a kind and truly different from what you will normally find in an ordinary holiday apartment. The style can be described as 'shabby chique'. Old looking furniture is combined with modern design and industrial lightning. Old wood has an important role in the entire design, as well as colors, which will be found in the fabrics you will see all around the apartment. The kitchen is very well equipped with large Smeg stove and stand alone colored Smeg fridge. Cooking lovers can enjoy themselves a lot!

The building is dominantly positioned halfway an important hillside near Lake Trasimeno and Perugia. Enjoying spectacular vast views to Tuscany (Montepulciano). The old Medieval town of Piegaro is only 2 kilometers away where the A1 Motorway (Rome-Florence) is only 20 minutes drive.

This is absolutely something different you won't see anywhere else in Umbria!
