In the hills above Lake Trasimeno in Umbria /Tuscany lies the Villa La Rogaia. We offer a wheelchair friendly holiday apartment "Il Peperino" for 4 to 6 persons, amidst a large garden with pool. Children and pets welcome.
The two-bedroom apartment is centered around the traditional Umbrian kitchen. Here everybody meets in front of the open fireplace for cooking, taking meals, playing and relaxing. There is space for a family or group of four, with the possibility of additional sleeping accomodation for two more persons. All rooms are furnished with paintings, reliefs and sculptures by the artist Wolfgang Sandt. The kitchen workplace is made of Peperino sandstone and black slate in combination with sun coloured yellow tiles. On summer days you can enjoy your meals on the shaded terrace in front of the kitchen. The windows of this apartment open towards the flower garden, meadows, olive groves and rolling hills to the South, East and North.
Master craftsmen known for their artistic flair within an ancient tradition have restored all buildings at Villa La Rogaia. Outstanding art works in marble and other stoneworks by the sculptor Wolfgang Sandt give this holiday home a very special touch.
The surrounding landscape is a tapestry of olive groves, sheep pastures, woods, sunflower fields, punctuated with cypress and ancient stone oaks. Here, far away from your hectic everyday life you can relax amidst a natural setting. In the early spring, almond and peach blossoms paint the valley. The summer brings honey scented ginestra (broom). Warm august nights are filled with cicada concerts. The hills are laced with golden hues in the mild autumn, warmed by the scent of chestnut fires throughout the valleys. La Rogaia is the perfect spot for those who seek absolute silence: the next public road is 2.5 km away.

“Fantastic autumn holiday in the Italian countryside”
Left on 03/14/2014 for a stay in November 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 14, 2014Stayed Nov 2013
We stayed at La Rogaia end of November 2013. La Rogaia is an "agriturismo" i.e. a farm offering holidays appartments.
It was a fantastic holiday with lots of culture (Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Arezzo are nearby and can be reached easily by car. There are much more old towns around but you simply cannot visit all of them in one week).
Our apartment "Nostalgia" was fantastic, spacious with many nice details (superb craftsmanship. We really like it when holiday apartments are not only mere standard but have this touch of artistry)
The landscape around La Rogaia is breathtaking, lots of stunning panoramic views and spectacular sunsets we could admire from the balcony of our apartment.
I liked very much the wood stove in our big kitchen. Cosy place, specially in the evening when it gets a little fresh outside (During the daytime it was still agreably warm.)
By the way, the owners of La Rogaia are very friendly helpful people, speaking English fluently.
Annette gave us a lot of insider tips which places to visit
(Tons of them! One of my favourites was the hidden Etruscan tomb in the middle of the woods. Its door made from a heavy stone slab. Still working after more than 2000 years! And freely accessible. But you have to know how to find it) and about restaurants. Honestly I forgot most of the names, but delicious food everywhere.
We will certainly be back. Maybe for the olive harvest or maybe for an argentine Tango beginners class.
Hello, I am happy to hear that you liked your stay at La Rogaia ! And when you are back - maybe next time in summer - we have another hidden surprise to show you: the coolest spot for a hot summer day - a secret waterhole for swimming in the middle of an ancient oak forest. We look forward to seeing you again! Annette, Agriturismo La Rogaia
