Tartagi Alti is a very quiet, child-friendly with a fine private pool and only a 5-minute walk to shops and restaurants in a classic medieval village, Tartagli Alti is a classic Umbria villa with private pool which has everything you would ask for in a holiday villa
The views from Tartagli Alti are, without exaggeration, stunning; layer upon layer of thickly wooded hills roll into the distance. The picturesque old village of Paciano is a walk away, just next to the border with Tuscany, with restaurants, bars and one of the prettiest roofscapes in all Umbria. The many charms of Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in Tuscany, edged with historic little towns, tiny beaches and old fashioned ferry boats for popping over to the lake s islands - is just 13 kms away. Tartagli is handy for so may tempting tourist attractions, but... the villa's swimming pool is so blissfully private, surrounded by turkey oaks, pines and inky cypresses, you may find it difficult to tear yourself away to drive off see the sights! Should you tire of moonlit dinners and beautiful views, your Summer’s Leases House Book will guide you to the best restaurants, trattorie and pizzerie for authentic local food.
Tartagli Alti’s sitting room is huge and homely, with comfortable sofas, a good selection of much consulted maps, well-thumbed books and traditional board games, as well as a music system and TV. It opens onto a long, cool dining terrace with magnificent views across the Tresa Valley - perfect for a quiet read or meals all’aperto. There’s also a twin bedded room on the ground floor and a bathroom with shower. Through an arch is the modern well-equipped kitchen, with stylish granite work surfaces and dishwasher. The kitchen door opens to the pretty back terrace with a huge fig tree, dozens of bright geraniums and plenty of tables and chairs - the ideal spot to breakfast after a dip in the pool.
On the upper floor there are the two newly redecorated main bedrooms, each with doors onto a panoramic balcony. There’s also a small single bedroom and a brand new bathroom with bath tub/shower.
But the trump card is Tartagli Alti s walking distance of the lively village of Paciano - though it’s uphill all the way home! You ve finally found the "holy grail" of villa rentals: a real family villa within a walk of a village. What’s more, the area abounds with history - the locals maintain that the fabulous lost tomb of the Etruscan king Porsena is somewhere nearby, though of course the exact spot has never been located.
Tartagli Alti is only 15 km from the Autostrada del Sole, which means that it’s also brilliantly located for every variety of sightseeing trip: wineries, museums, fashion outlets, great art and great food. But if you want to just tootle around the local area, there s the excellent Etruscan Museum at Chiusi, the lovely circular village of Cetona (with lunch Da Nilo), Panicale, Città della Pieve ...
All in all, Tartagli Alti offers you the very best kind of villa holiday - it s an easy going, jolly kind of house, with a wonderfully Italianate feel, in a very fine location. No wonder it s so popular with Summer s leases guests. Why not see for yourself?
