Perched on a bluff with commanding 270 degree views of the cultivated fields, valleys and Appennine foothills beyond, La Rondinaia (the Swallow’s Nest) is a three hundred year old, newly and exquisitely restored stone farmhouse in the province of Perugia.
Built in the classic Umbrian style with exposed chestnut beam ceilings, thick stucco walls and hand made terracotta floor tiles, La Rondinaia consists of three bedrooms, three ensuite bathrooms with enclosed showers, a large modern farm kitchen with separate dining area, and a large sitting room surrounding a massive stone fireplace. Two bedrooms each contain a wrought iron queen bed and traditional furnishings, while the other bedroom has a pair of twin beds to comfortably accommodate a party of 6 persons. Every window commands stunning views of the valley and cultivated hills below.
The kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator, dishwasher, five-burner gas cooktop, convection oven and state of the art cookware. There is a television with CD and DVD players for guests’ entertainment. The laundry room contains a front-loading washing machine.
La Rondinaia is situated on three serene and panoramic acres landscaped with lavender, herbs, olives and cypresses adjoined by oak forests, affording complete privacy for its 10 x 5 meter swimming pool. A traditional vine covered pergola and expansive brick patio equipped with wood and wrought iron table and chairs provide guests the opportunity to dine alfresco.
Pietralunga, the lively walled medieval hilltown, which serves as the local commercial center, is only 10 minutes (7kms) away. Here guests can find everything they need including two bakeries, two supermarkets, a butcher shop, a bank and several superb and charming restaurants. In fact, the restaurant of La Locanda del Borgo is featured in the Gambero Rosso guide.
