Why Kids Love it

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.

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!

Umbria, Italy

Green valleys and chocolate kisses

Bordering Tuscany in the middle of Italy, Umbria is a region of sweet green hills and sweet chocolate - Baci chocolates, (baci means kisses in Italian) are made here in Perugia. There are lots of attractions for families, from vineyards to Italy’s highest waterfall, shrouded in mist and shining with rainbows. For kids that love natural history, there’s a cave with dinosaur remains and a fossilised forest to visit; not forgetting the more obvious delights of Perugina chocolate factory and Tavenelle waterpark in Perugia. And this is Italy: “no thanks, I don’t like gelato, pizza or pasta” said no kid, ever - the food is delicious.
