Description from owner
Casa Cantagallina is a large farmhouse, dating back to the 18th Century, situated in small hamlet located between Chiusi and Lake Trasimeno.
It is a beautiful Villa, built on three floors and restored by the current owners to be a spacious and comfortable family home. They have used all original materials and therefore preserved the character of the property while also introducing many modern luxuries including a large contemporary kitchen.
Each floor has been designed to be self sufficient and the owners added large living areas to each floor. This makes the villa the perfect property for large groups of friends or families, ensuring everyone has their own space.
Each floor can be closed off and so if required the property can be rented by a smaller group at a discounted rate. Please enquire.
Two additional guests can be accommodated for a modest charge for laundry
There are stunning views from all parts of the property, looking over Lake Trasimeno and down to the surrounding valleys.
Entrance is through the first terrace into a large very well equipped kitchen that leads onto the dining room and the spacious sitting room. The sitting room opens to the garden and a beautiful terrace with pergola that is used for dining, seating 12 comfortably with a gas bbq. There is also a games room with table tennis and table football and independent laundry.
On the ground floor a bedroom has been adapted for accompanied wheelchair use, with access to a bathroom with shower, which is available on request only.
This floor has been divided into 2 suites. Suite 1 has a very large sitting room (with tv and comfortable seating) that leads directly onto a beautiful terrace, with stunning views, perfect to watch the evening sunsets. There is master double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom with bath and a twin bedroom with an ensuite bathroom with shower.
The second suite also has a sitting room with a fireplace and kitchen and breakfast area. There is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom which share a bathroom with a shower.
There is another comfortable sitting room on the third floor. There is one double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a twin bedroom with shower enclosure.
The villa has a large open lawned garden, that slopes down the valley with stunning views. There are many shaded areas and lots of space for families to enjoy.
The property is fully fenced and has a gated entrance to ensure privacy and security and there is plenty of parking space within the fenced property.
A stunning swimming pool is located just below the main house, positioned to enjoy the beautiful views. It is a large 6 by 12 metre pool, 1 to 2 metres deep, with a diving board and entry steps and surrounded by a stone terrace.
There is a beautiful wooden pergola located next to the pool and numerous sunbeds and tables.

“Fabulous Umbrian Farmhouse”
I visited with a group of friends and found this a perfect place for a relaxing holiday. There is a wonderful view, with easy access to interesting hilltop villages to visit. It is peaceful and restorative. The house is very large with ensuite bathroms, well-equipped and comfortable, full of the character of an old Umbrian farmhouse. The swimming pool is very welcome in hot weather. I would recommend this highly for a large family, group of families or friends.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your kind review
“Lovely spacious restful house”
Cantagalina is a glorious house perfectly positioned for exploring the surrounding countryside and its beautiful small towns and villages. It is an enormous house full of cosy spots to sit and relax. The garden is fantastic too with idyllic swimming pool. We spent a lovely week here and hope to return.
Response from the owner Thank you very much We do hope you return one day
“Most wonderful time”
I am writing somewhat belatedly to thank you for making it possible to rent your house for 3 weeks. We all had the most wonderful time. Over the 3 weeks 22 people shared your home and without exception pronounced it the most perfect house for a house party: a table which seats 14+, the house layout which guarantees space and privacy, a kitchen that had every single thing we needed! and an ambiance which encouraged comfort and informality. The maps, city guides and maps, guidebooks etc. meant that there was a ready source of information available and finally the location itself which was perfect for both hanging out in the house and for day trips to some of the most special cities and towns in Italy. I think it is fair to say that for us all, Casa Cantagallina provided us with a special memory of both time together and as tourists in Italy. I believe that the ease we felt in your home must have mirrored your own hospitality even though you weren't there!

No doubt one of the best holidays ever. I have been back since and in an ideal world I would spend all my summers here. The villa is set in a fantastic location with views of the lake and rolling Italian countryside which make a prefect backdrop for an evening Campari on the terrace. The villa makes an ideal base for exploring the numerous beautiful near-by Tuscan and Ubrian towns such as Castiglione, Orvieto and Cortona. The house is well thought-out with added extras such as wifi and a great selection of cds and cook books. There is also a brilliant guide to the local area with personal recommendations that was put together by the owners. The villa is spacious and would be an excellent choice for larger groups as there are great communal spaces as well as ample room for those moments when you want to curl up in a corner with a good book undisturbed. All in all I cannot think of a more wonderful place.
“Fichi per la prima colazione”
A beautiful house and stunning garden, I hope to soon be returning to this farm house on the hill. Peace and quiet; the Umbrian sun and figs for breakfast, what more could you need? If not for my stay at Casa Cantagallina, it his highly doubtful that I would have finished my third book - A Complete History of Truffle Oil: No Messing with the Dressing. Highly recommended - a marvellously furnished home with everything you could possibly need for an extended stay. Very child friendly and possessing an excellent and highly agreeable array of spaces in which to drink Campari and listen to David Bowie.
“Comfort in a great location”
Three top things about Cantagallina: 1. Great pool with views over Trasimeno as far as the high appenines. 2. Walks on quiet undulating country lanes amid vineyards and fields. 3. A spacious comfortable house with big rooms for socialising and lots of small spaces for privacy.
“Brilliant house and a great base for exploring Umbria”
The tastefully decorated house is extremely spacious, with many areas to sit and relax both indoors and out - so many in fact that it is hard to decide where to have the first drink of the evening and enjoy the views. The large and welcoming dining space is great for lunches and dinners with a big group, but it is also possible to find a quiet corner to oneself. I found the shady terrace by the pool was just right for an afternoon siesta after a morning out and about. There are nice places to walk from the house as well. I'm hoping to go back this summer...
