La Torretta, Papiano

Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Papiano, Marsciano, Province of Perugia, Umbria
Neatly perched on a south-facing hillside, La Torretta overlooks the beautiful village of Papiano and the Tiber Valley beyond. The house has been carefully designed and built in the style of a renaissance tower with adjoining wings. The two bedroom, two bathroom, kitchen/dining room and sitting room have been finished to a very high standard using local artisans to finish the grilles, handrails and fashion all the chestnut wooden doors and shutters.

The location is perfect and within 30 minutes of the villa, most of Umbria's best well known attractions can be experienced - or why not sample true Umbrian village life here? A five minute walk will take... Read more

We had a wonderful week. The house has everything you need and is very central for visiting the local towns. Best part was sitting on the terrace and taking in the fabulous views over diner or a glass of wine.

About the neighbourhood
Papiano village is about 800m walk from the Villa. There is a café bar serving light snacks only. There is a supermarket, butchers, bakers and a cake shop and a post office. The nearest shopping centre (Marsciano) is 10 minutes by car, and has a full range of shops and services and a big market on Monday mornings. Perugia, the provincial capital, is 25-30 minutes away by car. Papiano also has a train station, 5 mins drive outside the village which links you North to Perugia and South to Terni.

The village enjoys its own week of festival time, or locally called Sagra. The Sagra delle frutti di bosco is in August and you can enjoy the local ladies cooking, wine from the local cantinas dancing until the early hours in the market place.
