Perks for the Parents

This 1-bedroom apartment in a restored stone farmhouse looks out over fragrant gardens and olive groves, and has a treehouse and play equipment for the kids plus a lovely shared and fenced pool. For those needing a little more space this apartment can be combined with the 2 -bedroom Rancale to provide a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom apartment, all on 1 level, sleeping up to 6 + 1 baby. The hosts have thought of everything for a relaxing stay with kids. There's a fenced pool with plenty of loungers, toys galore, and a private terrace with views for leisurely family meals al fresco. The hosts offer an in-house menu with a wide range of freshly prepared homemade Italian dishes you can heat, and even arrange a babysitter for a child-free evening or two.

Why Kids Love it

Younger visitors will love the play area around the swimming pool with its shaded pergola, play house and table football. Leading from the shaded terrace is a children’s play area. There’s also a wonderful tree house tucked away in the olive grove and maybe an excursion to the nearby river that has pools where you can swim or catch crabs. The swimming pool is fully fenced and has a shallow end with Roman steps, making it easy to enter for all ages and there is also a covered paddling pool for little ones. There are heaps of toys and books for young kids as well as high chairs, cribs, kids’ cutlery and more. Whenever possible, the hosts organize a weekly pizza-making session by the pool where kids can roll their own dough and select toppings before their creation is cooked in the woodburning pizza oven.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights in high season (May to Sept). Minimum of 3 nights Oct through April and heating costs in this period are charged according to use. Standard changeover day of Sunday in high season. The pool is unheated but has a summer cover that insulates the water overnight to keep it warm. The owners live onsite and have 2 friendly cats on the premises. There is free parking. The lounge and bedroom windows have built-in mosquito nets. The bedroom has a blackout blind as well as external shutters. Car hire is recommended to explore Umbria and the pretty surrounding towns. The Umbria Jazz festival in Perugia is in early July and well worth catching. The apartment comes with a selection of local wines and the hosts’ own estate-produced extra virgin olive oil to sample and purchase.

About the Location

The Santa Chiara Residence is in rural Umbria, situated in a quiet river valley surrounded by olive groves and landscaped gardens. It’s a peaceful oasis and a great base to explore the surrounding area – the main sights of Umbria including Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio and Lake Trasimeno are all within a 30-minute drive. Take a stroll from the bridleway at the front of the house – you’re surrounded by stunning hiking routes over the rolling countryside. The local village of Pierantonio is a 5-minute drive (or 30-minute walk) where there are pizzerias, bars and festivals in the summer. Fly into Perugia Airport (20 mins), Florence airport (2 hrs), Rome (2 hrs, 30 mins), or Pisa (2hrs 45 mins).

Accommodation Details

This apartment has 1 bedroom, which can be made up as a kingsize or a twin room, and it has an ensuite bathroom with a shower. It can easily accommodate a travel crib, and a further crib and sleeping arrangements for 2 additional adults or children can be requested for an extra fee. There’s a fully equipped kitchen with marble worktop, fridge/freezer, microwave, oven, grill and 4-ring gas hob. French doors lead to a private terrace with outdoor dining for up to 4, lounge seating and a sun parasol. The living room has a TV, DVD player and a full / double sofa bed. There is a shared garden with a play area and a pool.​

Style Notes

Rustic, family-friendly, magnificent views. This small but perfectly formed apartment has bags of character with traditional handmade terracotta floors throughout and a traditional stone-built kitchen with marble counter tops. The private flag-stone terrace overlooks the gardens and provides a wonderful shady spot to enjoy a morning coffee or late night glass of wine. The lounge/dining area is light and spacious with dual aspect windows. We love the exposed stone feature walls, the outdoor dining spot and the toys and activities for the kids.

In a moment of madness we decided to up sticks and move from Surrey to rural Umbria. With a baby on the way, little in the way of Italian and a derelict farmhouse to renovate, life for the first year was certainly very hectic! A few years down the line we have two children who attend the local italian schools, two cats, Charlotte and Blu and six free range chickens!! Now after 15 years we really think of this little slice of Italy as home.
