Friend reunions and family gatherings…..
This large, spacious, comfortable house is perfect for reunions of family and/or old friends.
A property with vast amounts of space, where everyone can be private when they want, but, with an enormous sitting/dining room, where everyone can congregate together. Indeed, it can seat up to 20 persons easily, INSIDE AND OUTSIDE !
This Villa has a separate kitchen/breakfast room with a dish washer, just off the enormous dining area and next to the outside patio, overlooking the pool. The Lodge also has a separate fully equipped kitchen. just off the very large dining area, overlooking the pool.
Besides the large lap pool, there is a pergola with seating for 4 – 6 persons and……a fantastic sound system. And, for those of you who like discos, you can have the sound system turned up to full volume since all the land, as far as the eye can see and further, belongs to you, during your stay at Vallocchia Villa.
A central location with easy access to all the Umbrian “hot spots” !
We also provide a whole variety of activities at very low cost because all our activities are “in house” and totally authentic :
olive oil tasting, wine tasting, truffle hunts, chef at home, cookery lessons….all followed by sumptuous feasts with unlimited fine local wines eg you can go to the famous Ciarletti house and taste their excellent oil. This oil was blessed by the Pope a few years ago and the Ciarletti family supply the Vatican exclusively with their award winning olive oil. Part of our small partnership group, they offer these “tastings” (wonderful lunch, in fact!) at 30 euros/per person. And, if a few of you book together, you may receive a discounted rate, depending on the circumstances at the time. We, as your hosts, make no profit from these activities. They are provided at “cost” price as add-ons to make your holiday extra special !
