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 1,4 and 6 and the annex (all doubles) have air-conditioning and all the other bedrooms have fans. 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.

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
Great for a family holiday
By Dawn H on 27-Jun-2015
We had a great family holiday last year in this wonderful farm house, will definitely go back again. In all there were 10 of us and there were plenty of places to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The infinity pool is fantastic with great views over the country side, sunbeds for all of us with shade or sun. There are plenty of games to play too, giant chess, boules and darts. In the evenings we had a barbeque or made pizza's in the pizza oven. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners were very helpful in every way.
Perfect week in Perugian countryside
By Katie W on 26-Jun-2015
Myself and my family stayed at Casa Timo in June this year, as we were all in Italy for my sister's wedding. The house, grounds and pool truly look better in the flesh than in the photos. All of the rooms are a great size, especially the master suite upstairs and the suite at lower ground floor overlooking the olive groves. The house has a spectacular vantage so you can see for miles around. The house is fantastically well equipped (especially the kitchen), so you feel at home straight away. We had great fun using the pizza oven and then sitting outside with a glass of wine. I would thoroughly recommend Casa Timo, and the owners are extremely easy to deal with and give good tips about the local area!
