About this listing
Prato di Sotto is for the connoisseur. A collection of historic stone buildings sits above the tiny 13th century hamlet of Santa Giuliana. Lovingly restored by the owner, Penny Radford, and furnished with her personal collection of kilim rugs and antiques from around the world, the emphasis is on comfort and style.
Il Molino is a charming studio with an open plan living/sleeping area and a separate bathroom. Situated on the top floor of the 14th century olive mill, there is also a large covered terrace overlooking the central courtyard. The double bed can be separated from the rest of the living area by an attractive wooden screen. There is small but well equipped kitchen corner with an oven, hob and fridge, and a separate bathroom with a bath and shower over. There is satellite TV and stereo and a wood burning stove for the cooler months. The terrace is a lovely spot to eat al fresco or just relax in the deckchairs provided.
The garden has been carefully designed to offer elegance and privacy, scented with roses, jasmine and lavender, while the 15m infinity edge pool is ideal for relaxing with a book after a refreshing swim. Penny offers her guests a unique mix of rugged Umbrian scenery with the warm hospitality of an English country house, sharing her knowledge of Italy, the pick of her vegetable garden and the company of her friendly dogs, always available for walks!
This charming retreat, high in the Umbrian hills, offers luxurious comfort and perfect peace, yet is only 30 minutes drive from Perugia.
Plus please use water carefully as it is a scarce resource and switch off lights at night. Please be pet friendly as we have dogs.
About the Host, Penny
Hello, I am Penny and came to Umbria 18 years ago to explore the possibilities of a completely new life in the hills of Umbria. My background was marketing and advertising. I have since restored a group of historic buildings in a wonderful hilltop location in Umbria. I love country life and the artistic and cultural possibilities of this area. I also love food and wine and love to share this with friends and guests. Can't live without dogs, country walks, friends, food music (opera and jazz) and of course museums and art galleries. I am co-founder of a local charity to help abandoned animals.
