Le Stalle (The old cowshed of l'Osteriaccia)
N. 4 bedrooms
10 km from Perugia (10/12 minutes)
This listing is for those who love the real country life. quiet, good food, drink and travel in the name of better and not typical of mass tourism. Perfect during Umbria Jazz!
The Old cowshed today is a beautiful open space on the ground floor of The Osteriaccia, farmhouse in 1200 at the foot of the Natural Park of Monte Tezio (trekking!). The rooms, which have been kept in a real restoration are large and spacious, bright and comfortable. In summer the location and the presence of old trees around the possibility of using a natural air-conditioning. The large kitchen is characterized by beautiful objects that evoke the country life has the ability to accommodate up to 10 people. The lounge is ideal for relaxing and reading. The mangers here for more than a century, are the framework for the walls in stone and a beautiful arch supporting virtually dividing the large room. The bedroom is the perfect combination of comfort and antique furnishings: a beautiful cabinet that housed the 800 robes also fascinated by the size of the drawers. A glass wall separates it from the living room. In the morning waking up to a period of 1400, was the old entrance to the stables.
We can not say a few words about the bathroom. Design that features the home and in particular the perfect harmony that is created between the modern and the uniqueness of the house with its eight hundred years of history are conducted more than ever right here. The farmhouse, around 1200 was originally an old coaching inn, also designed to accommodate travelers who stopped here to refresh. The oven (sight) of the bread is now home to the hall bath with cast iron. One is the experience of relaxation surrounded by ivy and ancient walls.
From 250mt there is a very very practise bus arrive in Perugia in 15 minutes.
Since 1200 the stables had an important place in the house. Initially housed cows and bulls also became a stopping place for travelers (Osteriaccia remember is the name that was given to him because here he paused for a certain period of time a robber who created many problems in the nearby countryside). The terracotta tiled floor, original is on a slight slope to allow the animals to pee off and move towards the sewers. One part is flat, slightly raised to help the bull mounts the cow. The troughs where the animals were watered, these original, still water damage. Later becoming Osteriaccia, there was no need for a large bread oven. And what was once a small steep Stalletta with bow for the rest of the animals became space for the oven, which is still active. The work that has been done here is "only" to make a unique and perfectly livable as true as what you'll see. No change that could bring a revolution in the spaces or disfigurement of the old.
quiet, shubby chic and comfortable, at 250 m there is the bus station, for Perugia.
This place is out of a dream- it's a very livable country den and every nook full of character and charm. Grazia has made a very livable space, with loads of guides and reading material to immerse yourself in Umbria. The K bus line makes this place very accessible: it goes from the center of Perugia and stops a few blocks away from the house. It's hard to think of drawbacks: the rooms are dark in the day, and If you have allergies the place can get damp after a rain- but if you're up for the country life, this place is perfect.
Grazia has a beautiful home on a bit of land in the Italian countryside of Umbria. She was a wonderful, helpful, kind and honest host even giving a bottle of wine from her work on arrival. The place was very homely with home-made olive oil, assorted teas and coffee and many books and magazines and some beautiful cats walking around. The house is about 3km from a beautiful forest, good for walks. Overall the experience was very beautiful and Grazia was extremely helpful and a lovely, genuine person.
Our only disappointment was that we could only spend 2 nights at Grazia's fantastic house. The apartment is huge, located in a renovated 800 year old stable. The space itself was evocative of a distant past, and enhanced by the manner in which is was decorated, The quiet of the countryside was perfect after the hustle and bustle of Rome, Venice, Florence and Bologna. Grazia is obviously passionate about maintaining her house as a remembrance of the past, while at the same time making it a comfortable space to relax or use as a base to explore Perugia. The bottle of wine Grazia had waiting for us was a thoughtful gift. I hope to be back.
If like us, you are a fan of food and wine, which is a good thing in Unbria, Grazia is THE person you must see!
More than being very warm to welcome you in her wonderful place, she will gives you some incredible tips to spend some wonderful time in the area.
It was a wonderful experience for us that we will never forget.
Thanks again Grazia for all!
A Paradise Corner! A styled and wonderful house in the nature, tremedously cosy, surrounded by great green spaces to discover. Near to the beautiful Perugia and in the middle of trekking paths to surrounding "Borghi", valleys and hills, we could really appreciate all the beauty of Umbria. Near to the main amenities, we really enjoyed our stay. Grazia has been unique, Master in the art of welcoming. We felt warmed, at home, and her reccomandations for visiting the region were essentials. If you are looking for a relaxing location in Umbria and you enjoy nature, culinary tradition and wine, you must go at Grazia's Paradise Corner! We will definitively return!!
Abbiamo trascorso una splendida settimana nel cuore dell’Umbria. L’appartamento è fantastico, ristrutturato con estrema attenzione in modo tale da mantenerne inalterato il fascino rurale. Grazia è una persona splendida: ci ha accolto con un dolce fatto in casa ed è sempre stata estremamente disponibile nei nostri confronti. Avendo diversi punti in comune abbiamo avuto modo di conoscerla meglio e trascorrere con lei e Cristiano una serata magnifica. Una perfetta esperienza in stile AirBnB. Grazie di tutto!
We spent a wonderful week in the heart of Umbria. The apartment is fantastic, renovated with great care, maintaining an unchanged rural charm. Grazia is a wonderful person: she welcomed us with a homemade cake and has always been extremely polite with us. We had a great dinner with Grazia and Cristiano which made that week the perfect AirBnB experience. Thank you for everything!
Excellent experience and lovely and amazing place full of surprises. Grazia is very friendly and welcoming :)
Nous avons adoré le Stalle, une maison avec une âme et une histoire où l on se sent bien immédiatement. ( et au frais !)
Grazia est une hôte chaleureuse et généreuse.
It's difficult to know where to start. From the moment we booked I knew this was going to be the perfect place for our weekend away. Grazia greeted us with a freshly made cake and wine cooling in the fridge. The house was incredible and we immediately felt at home. Grazia gave us lots of brilliant suggestions for things to do and the area is wonderful! It is peaceful and tranquil but so close to Perugia that you can easily go there and visit it. It really is the perfect place to stay if you want to relax, go walking, eat lovely food, drink fantastic wine or even enjoy The Umbria Jazz Festival (it's easy to get to Perugia by car!). I hope we will go back soon...
