The modern and exclusive farmhouse with private pool in Umbria consists of 2 buildings.
Set among tranquil cherry groves, a small vineyard and olives, the meticulously renovated farmhouse boasts a lovely view of the medieval town of Piedicolle. Formerly home to local farmers who worked the surrounding land, this estate was the meeting place for the annual battuto (beating of the grain). With the renovation of the second house– connected by a covered exterior breezeway – The Farmhouse accommodates up to 8 +2 guest.
With 4 spacious bedrooms – all with meticulously outfitted en suites and private terraces – La Segreta is perfect for groups of friends and family gatherings. The long shallow end of the pool was designed with young children in mind and the professionally outfitted kitchen and exterior fireplace with grill, make The Farmhouse an ideal location for professional cooks and home cooks alike.
Whether watching the sun set over the Tiber River Valley, sharing a meal in the well-equipped kitchen or relaxing by the fireplace after touring nearby hilltop towns, the ground floor is ideal for sharing time with family and friends.
Both buildings that make up La Segreta, feature terracotta and concrete/resin floors with oak beams and cathedral ceilings. The spacious dining room is equipped with a large rustic pine table and Eames Eiffel Tower chairs. At the heart of the living room is a limestone fireplace carved by local artisans, surrounded on three sides by double hung-doors that open to a large terrace and mature gardens. With oversized stainless steel appliances, a cooks stove and a full complement of All-Clad cookware, the kitchen is the perfect meeting place for food lovers of all ages. Each bedroom has a private bath with hand-laid river stones, a private terrace, french doors, an extra large rainfall shower head and a private terrace looking out to the valley. The houses feature AC, Wifi, retractable insect screens, television with SKY and Bose docking station for your iPod.
A peaceful sanctuary overlooking the Tiber River Valley, the spacious outdoor terrace, off the living room, is covered with white wisteria clinging to oak beams and features an outdoor fireplace that is perfect for cool fall nights or grilling bistecca and bruschetta. Below the terraces, the expansive stone swimming pool includes a paved area with chairs, lounges and night lighting. Each bedroom has its own private terrace (one has a freestanding outdoor bathtub). The authentic Umbrian landscaping (complete with sage, rosemary, bay and basil) includes cherry, walnut and olive groves; fig and cypress trees; rosemary bushes; jasmine-covered columns and endless rows of lavender.
