Perugia, Province of Perugia, Umbria
By far the largest and most spacious, very well equipped house at Castle Gaiche, it has been newly restored stylishly furnished with two double bedrooms, this stone built house sits within 6 acres of grounds at Castle Gaiche. It is the only property with its own private garden and real fire. A large pool is the perfect back drop to 20 sq miles of hilly wooded countryside a walkers paradise.

A veranda overlooks extensive castle gardens filled with rosemary, lavender, and olive tress, allowing you to enjoy a taste of Italy in the finest surroundings.

From the A1 motorway between Florence and Rome, we take the Chiusi exit on our way to Castello di Gaiche. This road takes us through the beautiful Umbrian landscape with it's sunflowers, vineyards and scenic village of Citta della Pieve (worth visiting!).

Had a lovely week with friends in this beautiful quiet place. Car essential, didn't do much in the evenings due to long winding road to Gaiche, but had special lunches out and relaxed when we returned. Lots to do and see in surrouding area and lovely people.

About the neighbourhood
The area is excellent for walking or cycling. A number of circular walks start from the castle, taking you through the rolling, wooded Umbrian countryside, filled with wild flowers, birds and butterflies. A pair of hoopoes can often be seen in the castle grounds, and wild boar on the road in the evening dusk.

Heading further out, Castiglion Fosco (10 minutes by car) offers a small grocers (alimentari), bar, pharmacy, post office and restaurant. Tavernelle (15 minutes) is larger, with supermarkets, banks, petrol station, bars, shops etc. Castiglion del Lago, with its old town and 16th Century castle overlooking Lake Trasimeno is about 45 minutes away.
