Lovely house located in the pristine hilltop village of Piegaro just three minutes’ walk from restaurants, bars and shops. Casa del Sole is a spacious, private home with large, secluded garden and wonderful panoramic views from every single room.
Casa del Sole (sonamed for its luminous views from every room). has 2 large bedrooms both with double bed (one with ensuite bathroom). There is a second bathroom and laundry area, a large fully equipped kitchen connected by an arch to a spacious dining room and adjacent living room with double sofabed. The property comfortably sleeps 4 people, or up to 6 if sofabed is used. You reach it from street level by half a flight of stairs.
When I was looking to buy, this property stood out immediately because of its spaciousness, the wonderful views and the light which comes into the house even in winter. It is also virtually unique in Piegaro or most medieval villages in having its own enclosed garden – and with a graceful mature olive tree in it to boot! The ideal spot for sipping your prosecco as you watch the changing evening light at sunset.
When you sit at the kitchen table preparing your dinner, the light pours through the dining room window and washes the entire space. I also love the wooden beams in both dining and living room and the fact my house is built into the substantial medieval walls, which are so thick that despite all the sunlight, it is never too hot in the house in summer and never really cold during the winter.
In my experience, some rental properties only have basic equipment but because I live in it part of the year myself, Casa del Sole is full of the creature comforts you'd expect of a home from home and is also graced with attractive antique furniture, unusual wall hangings and elegant pictures.

I am British-born from London and studied languages at the University of Bristol. I have had the fortune to spend most of my professional life indulging my two passions - travel and the arts. As a tour manager, I escort groups throughout Europe and especially Italy, my favourite country of all. It doesn’t matter how many times I take people to Venice, Florence or Rome, I never get tired of these cities and were I to do so, I frequently lead groups to some of the lesser known but equally remarkable destinations in this stunningly diverse country. I also offer tailor made itineraries for individuals and families, including booking accommodation, local guides and so on. My complementary, parallel career in the arts has seen me directing or managing theatre, dance and classical music festivals and working with various companies on fundraising and marketing. And finally, in the spring of 2013, I achieved my dream of having my very own house Under the Umbrian Sun!
