Traditional on the outside, chic and modern on the inside, Casa Lazzari is a stylish getaway on the border of Tuscany and Umbria. Renovated in 2008 to include a separate playhouse for children and situated 30 minutes from the Antognolla golf course, the six-bedroom property is ideal for both families and travelers looking to lower their handicap. It’s also within day-trip distance of several towns in both Tuscany and Umbria, and close enough to local restaurants for an easy dinner.
The villa’s gated entrance is approached on an unpaved road through the woods, but the trees soon open to a vista of the region’s rolling hills that can be enjoyed from the infinity pool or pergola-covered seating area on the terrace. There’s an outdoor barbecue and pizza oven, al-fresco dining area, and even a separate children’s playhouse. For the evenings, there are libraries of books, movies and games, a ping-pong table, a flat-screen TV, a computer and Wi-Fi access.
Casa Lazzari’s interiors still have their beamed ceilings, tile floors, and fireplaces, but they’ve been given a modern twist with neutral-toned rugs and sofas and graphic metal accents. In the living room, a roll-arm sofa and bergere chairs have an air of comfortable sophistication, while the dining room’s cream-colored chairs and glass-topped table are a bit more sleek and contemporary. The state-of-the-art kitchen has blond wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances laid out around a spacious island and breakfast bar.
Each of the villa’s six bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. On the ground floor, there’s a bedroom with a double bed, Sky TV, DVD player and iPod dock. On the second floor, you’ll find four bedrooms with double beds, one of which has Sky TV, a DVD player and Wi-Fi access. Also upstairs is a bedroom with a twin bed.
If you’d like to try local specialties during your stay, head to the restaurant or grocery store 5 minutes away. It’s an 11-minute drive to the nearest supermarket and shops, and a 30-minute drive to the village of Cortona and a golf course. The village of Preggio is 3 miles away, Umbertide is 11 miles away, and Perugia and its airport are about 34 miles away. Heading further afield, it’s a 90-minute drive to Siena.

beautiful villa, tastefully decorated, gorgeous with kiddies area, gardens well maintained, state of the art big kitchen, a little isolated in terms of the nearest large supermarkets but this meant an added feeling of seclusion which we enjoyed - Vanessa V., ,
