All sunbeds are provided by the pool, and there is a large covered pergola area in front of the house overlooking the pool,so that children can be supervised easliy.

There are automatic gates to the house which ,makes it totally secure and private. The grounds are mostly grassed with flowering plants and many areas for relaxing as well as the area around the pool. A traditional bread oven can be found near the house and many guests have enjoyed preparing and cooking their home-made pizzas, barbecues as well as using the heat from the oven to cook roasts ,and casseroles.

Local Area

The village of Promano has a supermarket and bar, but for a larger choice of shops etc, there is Trestina or Umbertide , 4 or so kms where guests will find banks, garages, bakers, butchers, hairdressers and a great variety of restaurants.

Many guests have found the position of the villa to be a perfect base for visiting the well-known towns and cities such as Assissi, Siena, Perugia, Cortona and many others to be discovered during the holiday. We advise guests who want to go further afield such as Rome or Florence to take the train which is inexpensive, no need to find parking, and fun!

There is a local private railway line which runs from Sansepolcro (home of the painter Piero della Francesca) to Perugia, the county town of Umbria with stations in Trestina ad Umbria.

We normally visit guests the day after arrival to give advice if needed, for places to visit which might not be on the normal tourist route, and therefore less crouded (we have lived about 20 mins from the villa for 23 years, so know the area well.) We can also suggest restaurants, from the set meal at 12€ to more sophisticated venues for gourmets or special occasions.

The road is good and the property has automatic gates so is secure and safe for children.
