Description

Farmhouse Villa in Cenerente, Perugia, Italy - Rural Setting But Within Easy Reach Of All Amenities And The Historic And Artistic Sites
Casa Timo, named from the smell of the thyme as you walk across the garden, is situated on the lower slopes of Mount Tetzio above the village of Cenerente with fabulous views across to Capocavello and the hills surrounding Lake Trasimeno. Even though it is secluded within its own olive groves and vineyard and is in a national park, it is only a few minutes drive from the amenities of the local village, including supermarket and 'Notorious' the local bar/restaurant. It is only 5 minutes from 2 large supermarkets, 5 miles from the old hill top center of Perugia and 12 miles from Perugia airport. The house, an old farm, has been converted into a private residence with all the Umbrian features of marble, terracotta, pinelle floors and wood but with the modern features of marbled wet rooms and bathrooms, modern full equipped kitchen, a totally private infinity edged pool for your sole use and covered terrace dining area. Along with its working pizza oven, it is very easy to enjoy the full experience of the Italian way of life.

The main house, as priced, is designed for 12 people, with a separate annex that can accommodate an extra 2 people at an extra cost. All the facilities however are for 14 people.

Notes on accommodation:- Bedrooms 1,2,3, 4 and 6 and the annex have air-conditioning and all the other bedroom has a fan. Bedroom 6 is vaulted and keeps a constant temperature all year round. It also has a large secluded paved terrace with its own table, chairs and sun loungers, particularly designed for the afternoon and evening sun. The whole house is gas central heated and with mains water. This is our private house built on a hillside and as such has steps and different levels. The infinity pool and terraces are not fenced off, but there are large flat grass areas. The house is ideal for large family groups or a collection of friends of all ages. We are prepared to accept dogs by arrangement, provided that they do not climb on the furniture.
House Rules- Strictly no smoking in the house or annex.
The Casa is ideal location for that family gathering or party.
Outside: There is a private pool, a main feature of the Villa with its infinity edge looking across the valley and hillside. The pool is 15 x 7.5 meters and 3 meters in the deep end and 1 meter in the shallow end. There are three separate paved terraced areas where one can read, eat or just relax. There are numerous sun loungers, seats and hammocks by the pool or round the property. We have a real pizza oven which you can use along with a brick BBQ. There is also a Large piece lawn Chess set and Boule court.
There are fabulous hillside walks straight out of the back of the property, the opportunity for the painter are multitudinous with many tumbled down old farms, landscapes and numerous hill top towns. Our land around the house include olives, vines, figs, pomegranates, greengages, apples, pears, cherries, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds as well as a pine grove. We maintain our olives and hope you will enjoy our very organic virgin oil while you are with us, and maybe try the local commune white wine which our vineyard helps to supply.
Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service:- Linen and towels (not pool) are supplied. Aleandro & Christiana who look after our Casa come on Sat/Sun to clean the house & pool, they also look after our garden and crops and can change the linen (more frequent by arrangement). They will also do cooking/babysitting if required. There is however a washing machine and tumble dryer in the Casa.

There is a separate annex which can be used as further self contained accommodation with shower room and kitchenette.
There is a large Loggia for outside dinning which seats 14 with a BBQ ideal for alfresco meals and just relaxing. Original working pizza oven.

A wonderful holiday house

By Rupert Brown on 06-Aug-2022

What a great place for a holiday! There were fourteen of us – two grandparents, their three children and their six children – aged 18 months to 72 years! The house, an old farmhouse brilliantly restored, suited us perfectly. All the bedrooms bar one had air-conditioning, the kitchen easily satisfied the most culinary demanding members of the family, and there were plenty of living spaces, inside and out, for everyone to do their own thing. Casa Timo’s isolated position means that it is wonderfully quiet, yet it’s only 20 minutes by car to Perugia and about the same to Lago di Trasimeno (sadly depleted of water when we were there due to months of drought). Of course, being August, we spent most of our time outdoors, in and around the wonderful pool. Fearsomely competitive boule contests were held on the purpose-designed pétanque court, and equally fearsome games of chess were played with the over-sized chess pieces in the main courtyard. And don’t get me started on the pizza oven which was commandeered by two of our party and made the most amazing pizzas in the whole of Perugia province (apologies to all the pizzerie in the locality!). Aleandro, the main housekeeper, was brilliant, responding to our various little ‘emergencies’ promptly and efficiently. We stayed a week; we wanted to stay a month.

Perfect Retreat for a Large Family

By Tessa S on 05-Oct-2015

We used Casa Timo for a week after our wedding, taking all our adult children with us. We named it our familymoon, and we had the most wonderful time. As a group of 14, we never found ourselves on top of one another, there are so many lovely places within the house and gardens to relax and spend some quiet time. The house was beautifully decorated, well equipped and very clean. The information that the owner provided for us was invaluable, it saves a day of your holiday researching where to go and what to see if your host has all those recommendations for you. The pool was lovely, but a little cold for me, the hardier members of the family were never out of it, the chess board in the garden was well used too. But mainly the loggia was our favourite place where we ate and sat out with several bottles of prosecco and just enjoyed the fabulous atmosphere of the house and quietness of the area. The views are wonderful, the house is a real treat and I would recommend highly. We would love to return.

Another delightful holiday in Umbria

By John Y on 25-Jul-2015

We have just returned from our second holiday in this delightful farm house high in the Umbrian hills with easy access by car to Perugia and the surrounding area. This old farm house has been beautifully converted by the owners and provides very comfortable and extensive accommodation for up to 12 guests. The rooms are large and have either fans or air conditioning, essential for us as the weather was very hot. The kitchen is also comprehensively equipped for everyone. In the garden the large logia / dining area encourages relaxed leisurely meals and the grounds are a delight with extensive views over the olive groves to the mountains. The infinity pool is perfect for relaxing in hot weather. The owners go to great lengths to help with advice and are easily contacted by phone or email. All these aspects lead to a really great holiday in Umbria
