Why Kids Love it

All kids love this house - getting them to leave without tears is going to be the main issue! The house is surrounded by woods and gardens where kids can run and play, and there is a heated toddler pool and heated large pool for swimming and fun in the water. Both are closed off. The indoor play room is truly unique: it is a small version of a soft play area and includes a ball pool. Games including puzzles and Lego are provided and there is also a trampoline and table tennis table outside. The kids bedroom is set up with a large bed that sleeps up to 4 children for sleepover-style fun, and 2 beds can be added for a fee to make it work for larger groups.

Style Notes

Country house. This beautiful house dates back to the 16th century, when it was an important farm. During the restoration, the owners have tried to keep the structure as much as possible original and they re-used all old doors and shutters for coffee tables and kitchen doors. They added color and some light modern design to create this incredible villa. Brickwork original walls juxtapose with clean modern lines and bright color, creating rural country living with a high luxury finish, and kids are not forgotten. This home epitomizes everything Kid & Coe seeks in a property: an outstanding destination for family travelers combined with design-led interior features bursting with authenticity and spaces that parents and children will both love, without compromises.

This place is absolutely unreal--ESPECIALLY if travelling with small children who were in heaven over the completely enclosed/safe/sprawling built in jungle gym. The views are a dream, the amenities are a dream, the design is stunning. The House Manager checked in daily and addressed any and every question we had about things to do locally or other recommendations. What a wonderful experience! Can't recommend this place enough; we've already begun the search to stay at one of their other properties in another part of Italy.

Pictures usually look much better than what you get in real life, but that's not true of the Piegaro Residence. A true gem, and we enjoyed it thoroughly! The drive up the windy gravel round felt a little intimidating, but once you crest the hill, you're treated to a gorgeous view of the valley and well-manicured and well-kept grounds. The kids had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed the indoor and outdoor spaces. The hosts were well-organized and kept in touch throughout the week.

Piegaro is a magical home. We rented it because it was perfect for kids, but I think the parents had just as much fun as the kids. Coffee overlooking an incredible view ever morning, a perfectly heated pool that made swimming in February possible, cooking by ‘mama’’ that fed us for days and recommendations based on experience. The question isn’t ‘if we would go back’, but rather ‘when can we go back?!’

The Piegaro Residence is stunning in every way. The view, decor, layout, amenities inside and out, the chef options, and so on. It's in a remote spot in beautiful region of Umbria where we (6 adults, 7 kids) could gather and not feel as if we were bothering any neighbors with our noisy children :o) We took day trips easily to Citta della Pieve, Chiusi for horseback riding, Lake Trasimeno, Lake Bolsena, Montepulciano, and Perugia during our weeklong stay. There's cleaning twice a week which was nice and we took advantage of the cooking class, welcome dinner, Mama's cooking, and Chef Angelo's truffle menu! If you want some peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, The Piegaro Residence is your place!
