About this listing
The Borghetto of Peccio Martino is an ancient stone hamlet, 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 two double rooms and one bathroom. In the living room with a full furnished kitchen and a beautiful stone fireplace, there is one double sofa bed. We offer guests bed linen and towels that are replaced weekly. Wi-fi ia 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. The apartment is on the first floor of the main farmhouse, but the guests can use, anyway, a private place in the garden.
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.
The apartment was just like it was described, very comfortable, we feel like at home very quickly.
Anna and Massimo were very kind with us and always available when needed.
The area is lovely with nice point of views, and paths in the forrest. A lot of villages are to be visited and the Trasimeno lago is not that far.
+: mooi en rustig gelegen, prachtig en proper zwembad, aanspreekbare eigenaars, handig ingedeeld appartement, redelijk koel binnen ondanks warmte buiten
-: internet werkte zeer slecht (zo goed als nooit), gebruik van gemeenschappelijke wasmachine kon enkel mits tussenkomst van de eigenaar (dat was niet zo handig)
Wonderful place. Stayed 2 weeks there. Easy to visit beautiful cities like Orvieto, Gubbio, Assisi and some smaller villages like Panicale, Citta Della Pieve, Castilione del Lago. Other day trips were Rome, Monte Cucco and Monte Argentario at the sea. The place is beautiful surrounded by Forest and flowers. swimming pool is state of the art with a great view. There is a walk around of about 5 km from where you can see Assisi, Perugia and the Pietrafitta lake and mountains/hills. Certainly at sunset nice color setting. And then of course the hospitality of Massimo and Anna. Feeling home from the first minute.
I’m a single dad with 3 kids between 21 and 16. We booked for a week and had a lovely time at the Il Borghetto. We had the middle floor apartment. 2 large bedrooms, a large living room with kitchen. All nicely furnished in the charming farmhouse style of the region. Very nice. Best part is a very large bathroom with toilet, sink, bath and shower. The apartment is more than spacious for 4 people. The pictures as included are exactly what you can expect. The kitchen has all it needs, and most of the equipment is brand new from Ikea, so you really feel at home ;-). Also a nice large fridge with freeze compartment. We took our breakfasts and late evening meals under a nice tree close to our apartment. In the late evening we played cards under the lamp post.
During our stay of a week the temperatures were between 35 and 40 during the day so we spent most of our daytime at the pool which is big and has umbrella’s and deck chairs. The wifi was not working well during the week we stayed, but Anna was going to have it fixed and by the end it was already much better. We stayed the first week of July and there were not too many families there so we enjoyed the rest and had the pool and accomodations mostly to ourselves. By the end of our stay most of the appartments were rented so it became a bit more crowded, mostly with families with smaller kids.
The accommodation is quite far away from any villages which has the advantage that the environment is calm and silent. But the nearest supermarket is 7 kms away, so every morning you need to take your car to get bread for breakfast. The neighbourhood is nice but quite plain villages. To visit nice cities you need to travel a bit further. Perugia is an old ancient Italian city and really nice to visit.
Anna and her husband are very friendly and helpful. They are not intrusive and respect your privacy during your stay but are always available for answering questions. Very nice people. This is not a B&B but a very nice Agriturismo. Maybe an idea for Anna to take care of a bread delivery service in the morning for the guests?
This place is beautiful. The pool is very nice and large. There are many outside areas to eat or relax. The apartments are well done and the bathroom is clean and enormous. Best feature - window screens so you can open up all the windows and not worry about the persistent Italian mosquitos! It is a great place to retreat to and relax after a day of sight seeing. Pro/con is that it is not near a large city or freeway. Extremely difficult to find the first time without GPS.
The farmhouse was very comfortable and situated in a beautiful part of the world. Anna was very hospitable and gave us a lot of good advice to make the most of the trip. We had a wonderful holiday.
We loved staying in this house! It was exactly like the pictures and the views are beautiful. We also enjoyed using the pool! The host was very helpful and available for any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again!
