About this listing
The Borghetto of Peccio Martino is an ancient stone hamlet of 1600, situated in the heart of Umbria, surrounded by woods and vineyards. The optimal position on the border with Tuscany, permits to reach easily some of the most beautiful cities of our land: Perugia, Assisi, Città della Pieve, Siena and Montepulciano. The apartment that we offer, with stone and exposed beams, has a double room with a bathroom. In the living room, with a full furnished kitchen, there is a double sofa bed. We offer guests bed linen and towels that are replaced weekly. Wi-fi is also present in the apartment. Guests can also enjoy the large garden around the house and use the swimming pool of the structure, whose panoramic position, makes the atmosphere very relaxed and charming. There is ample space to relax in tranquility, drinking a good a glass of wine or a cup of tea, reading a book and converse with other guests.
In Autumn and Winter the heating cost is paid apart
Our farmhouse is near Perugia (20 minutes by car), just 5 minutes from a village where you can find a supermarket, the post office with ATM and a pharmacy. Thus it can be easily reached through the main Italian motorway A1 (Milan - Rome). In 2 hs you can reach Rome or Florence, in 1 h Siena and the famous Val di Chiana in Tuscany. The nearest airport is Perugia Sant' Egidio where there are daily flights from Milan. It's also possible to reach easily Roma Fiumicino and Roma Ciampino airports by the motorway. Perugia has an important train station where there are also some offices to rent a car.
Great house, warm atmosphere and sweet hosts. Our kids could roam free and the pool was big and a blessing. We made most meals in the apartment, an ok supermarket is 10 min drive in Tavernelle.
Inside, standard is beyond what you can expect considering the prize.
Outside, we had the smallest apartment with the best terrace, huge, and amazing view of the wine, woods and sunset.
It was hot +40, and aircon would have been nice. Big open doors with mosquito net was important. If you are sensitive to heat, maybe not go in july.
Location was a bit off, endless list of great things 1-3 hours away. But fewer within one hour. The farm itself couldn't have been more beautiful and calming though.
All in all: the place was all we wished for. Our kids, 6 and 8, had unlimited time in the big pool, and enjoyed the tranquil nature. No cars, plenty of things to explore. We enjoyed wonderful food on the terrace and felt at ease.
Best tip: restaurant on the first square in Panicale, M something - make reservations... Also great winemaker in Casamaggiore, the wine called Stucchio.
Thanks Anna - for a wonderful Umbrian week!

Very good and relaxing time.
Nice and quiet location. Nice swimming pool area; very nice and relaxing outdoors areas to sit (eat and drink, including bbq). Also nice to be able to be isolated or to meet other families staying there.
Photos perfectly matching what it is.
Easy access to supermarket + small towns to visit and have dinner (you must have a car, of course).
Our host, Anna, made us feel immediately at ease. The apartment was spacious, had a well appointed kitchen, and a beautiful combination of original details and modern convenience. Our unit had a private patio which we used daily for dining. The pool was well maintained and we used it daily after our day trips through Umbria and Tuscany. Anna also helped us contact the owner of our next destination since we did not carry an international cell phone. Surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers this location could not have been more beautiful and relaxing.
Nous avons trouvé l'endroit charmant, la vue depuis la terrasse est superbe, l'équipement cuisine est très bien, la piscine est, grâce aux efforts constants du maître des lieux, Massimo, belle, grande, propre et d'une température agréable, le tout entouré d'une nature verdoyante. Seul bémol dans la maison occupée par notre famille de 4 personnes, la literie (canapé deux places dans lequel dormaient nos enfants) très
inconfortable ainsi qu'un problème d'insonorisation entre notre maison et celle mitoyenne. Nous avons souvent discuté avec Massimo qui met tout en oeuvre pour que les gens passent un agréable séjour.
We had a great time during our holiday in the farmhouse! The flat is beautiful with a full equipt kitchen and a fantastic bathroom! The terrace is very big an has a fantastic few. Anna an her husband were very kind and helpful! A very nice and clean pool with a great view. The stonehouse is a nice place from where you can explore Umbria! We will come back again :-)
This farmhouse is located in a such a peaceful and beautiful place. The apartment was so clean and well equipped, and had a very big and great bathroom. We loved the place, and had such great time swimming in a big and clean swimming pool. Our children could only think about going for a swim from the morning!
Anna was such a helpful and kind host that anyone could ever hope for. She and her husband look after the place so well that the farmhouse looks absolutely beautiful. We also enjoyed sitting outside watching the gorgeous view and magical sight of fireflies in the night time.
We were a family of 4 but I think this apartment might be better for 2 because the sofa bed in the living room is close to a possible-connecting-door to the next apartment (apparently they could connect two apartments for a larger party) and we could hear them quite well when we were in bed. We think we would chose a 2 bedroom apartment next time.
The nearest town Tavernelle has a good supermarket, a few restaurants but I would recommend highly to go visit a hilltop town Panicale (only 15 minutes away) which has a couple of fantastic restaurants!
Thank you Anna!
The last stop on our Italian adventure was Umbria. We stayed at Il Borghetto Di Peccio Martino for 5 nights. The farmhouse (if you can call it that) is in fact a lovely and secluded apartment at the end of a long driveway on top of a hill. When we arrived Anna was there to greet us and make sure we were comfortable and that we knew everything about the accommodation and other relevant information regarding the area which was well located to reach the surrounding Umbrian countryside.
The apartment itself has everything you need to be comfortable, big kitchen, huge comfortable bed and bathroom...with a bath, not just a shower! We enjoyed a terrace where we could eat, drink and watch the beautiful sunset over the hills and lake in the distance. We spend every night after dinner with our after dinner drinks outside surrounded by twinkling fire flies and other country sounds.
Anna is a gorgeous lady who brought me a hot water bottle and some tea bags when she found out from my husband that I was feeling a bit unwell. She also offered us an umbrella when it was a bit wet on one of the days. Anna speaks English well and so it was very easy to communicate with her.
My husband & I found it to be the perfect way to end our one month holiday.
