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 room, a single room, two bathrooms. In the living room, with a beautiful stone fireplace, there is a full furnished kitchen. We offer guests bed linen and towels that are replaced weekly. 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 second floor in the main farmhouse, but guests can use a private place in the garden however.
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.
Anna made us very welcome as we arrived at this little group of apartments and showed us around where we stayed. The apartment that we stayed in was just as described, and although on the second floor, it didn’t feel like that, somehow, as the entrance to it was on the first floor. The apartment was set in lovely peaceful grounds with plenty of trees for shade. We shared a lovely clean pool with around 4 other apartments, and yet it never felt crowded or too full. The surrounding area, too, was peaceful. A lovely place to relax!
Grazie mille Anna!
Thank you so much, Nigel, for your nice appreciation about our place. I know the unusual hot weather has made your staying a little difficult, but we really couldn't help it. Thank you again for coming and hope to meet you and your beautiful family again in the future.
Nice farmhouse with a very lovely and big pool! The farmhouse is conveniently located near place like Perugia and Assisi. We stayed in the Stone Farmhouse with Pool 5, which is on the second floor. Because it was very warm during our stay, our sleeping rooms were very warm too because the rooms are just under the ceiling. The WiFi in our appartment was virtually non-existent, and also outside the WiFi was very very slow.
Il Borghetto (unit 5) was exactly what we needed after a week and a half playing tourist with the throngs in crowded Rome and Florence during some of the hottest summer days in recent memory. The old stone farmhouse was lovely, providing calm serenity and a sense of connection to history in the quiet Umbrian hills. We enjoyed cooking and eating meals in the well appointed kitchen and dining area with large round wooden table and comfortable chairs. It was fun to imagine how wonderful it would be to enjoy Il Borghetto in a cooler season with a roaring fire in the stone fireplace. During our stay we made sure to make good us of the beautiful, spotlessly clean pool with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside, including a memorable family swim one evening in a light rain after a hot day exploring Bettona and Assisi. Anna was a very helpful and gracious host, providing an extra fan to help cool the apartment during the hot evenings. I only wish we could have stayed longer, and I highly recommend this property to families looking for a quiet, strategically located base from which to explore nearby destinations in Umbria and Tuscany - or just to relax in an idyllic Umbrian setting.
Very nice and relaxing place to stay between our Rome and Venice stops. Our kids loved the place and especially the pool. The appartement looked brand new and we had plenty of space. Very pleasant stay.
Die Unterkunft entsprach unseren Erwartungen bzw. hat sie übertroffen. Ein sehr schönes Anwesen, ruhige Lage, schöner und sehr gepflegter Pool. Freundliche Gastgeber mit gute Tipps!
We chose IlBorghetto Peccio as it was a stone house and it certainly delivered on the goods, it was spacious and well laid out. Anna was helpful with the check in plus there was an abundance of plates, glasses and pots and pans.
All in all we had a great stay the girls loved the pool.
Anna and Massimo were terrific hosts. They we're very kind and helpful. We loved our place. Great location that was close to the cities we wanted to see and then we could rest at the quiet country villa. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place in Umbria or Tuscany!
