Set on a hilltop on a 280-acre estate, villa Cataccio offers the privacy of a home with the convenience of a family-run estate near Perugia. Though the four-bedroom stone farmhouse is secluded, the estate’s owners are always available to recommend a nearby restaurant, and larger groups can rent both Cataccio and the neighboring villa, Calesa, for more room. Spend your vacation relaxing by the pool, or follow the local roads and see which Umbrian villages you discover.
With plenty of outdoor space, Cataccio is perfect for families with children. There are two pools—an adult-sized swimming pool and a paddling pool for kids—a shared... tennis court and a field for playing games. Parents, however, will appreciate the outdoor furniture and Wi-Fi access, and the available cook, babysitter and tennis coach services and massages, upon request.
The inside of the villa reflects its past as a farmhouse, with beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls, tile floors and an unpretentious feel—as shown by the vintage tools hung on the walls. The bright, comfortable living room has ample seating in shades of red and gold, and the welcoming dining room has a long, traditional-style wooden table and cheerful floral cushions and drapes. Stainless steel counters, a butcher block island, a commercial refrigerator and an espresso machine make cooking—and eating—in the fully equipped kitchen a pleasure.
Each of the four bedrooms at Cataccio has an en-suite bathroom. There are two bedrooms with double beds, one of which has its own staircase leading to the garden, and one bedroom with two twin beds, which can be converted to a double on request. The fourth bedroom has four twin beds, making it ideal for children or teenagers who crave their own space.
The villa within driving distance of several must-see towns and cities, from Perugia, 12 miles away, and Cortona, 29 miles away, to Siena, 65 miles away, and Florence, 91 miles away. But the area around the property is home to hidden gems like the medieval village of Montone, restaurants serving local specialties and shops selling olive oil and truffles. The closest restaurant is about 2 miles away, a grocery store in Preggio is about 4 miles away, the supermarket, shopping and bank in Umbertide are 9 miles away and there’s a golf course 7 miles away.
