Vocabolo Petrogallo, 06019 Umbertide (Perugia)
Elegant ancient country house between Umbria and Tuscany, which welcomes you with its huge swimming pool immersed in the garden between the hammock and the ping pong table, with its relaxing riverside walk that takes you into the town centre of Umbertide where you can sample the tasty local cuisine. The residence has spacious living rooms with fireplaces as well as more intimate, romantic rooms.
Strategically positioned also for those who wish to visit Tuscan and Umbrian villages.
Our little hamlet is made up of three buildings, which have been converted into a number of tastefully furnished, comfortable apartments or bedrooms.
GRANO SUITE APARTMENT (2+3) (approx 100 sq.m):
On crossing the grand entrance of the ground-floor apartment, our eyes are immediately drawn to the great living room with its vaulted brick ceiling. The fireplace and large valuable antique wooden table made of precious wood give warmth to the atmosphere, which somehow appears to stop time and restore harmony.
Antique wardrobes and handmade terracotta floors from the same brick-kilns, which supplied 16th-century Rome and which still to this day work according to the same traditions, complete the elegant atmosphere.
PAPAVERO SUITE APARTMENT (3) (approx 85 sq.m):
This splendid ground-floor apartment has a vaulted brick ceiling, which thanks to the carefully studied lighting, gives the whole apartment a very romantic feel, from the bright living room to the spacious bedroom.
There is a charming little kitchen which can be closed inside a cupboard.
MELOGRANO SUITE APARTMENT (4+2) (approx 120 sq.m):
The old apartment which belonged to the original owner is located on the first floor, as indicated by the great fireplace in the spacious, airy living room, around which all the family would gather in the long winter evenings.
Still today, it is ideal for families or groups of friends who can make use of the ample spaces and gather around the large table, or use the spacious bright kitchen to cook typical succulent produce, perhaps bought at the weekly market.
Walk through the still visible ancient arch and you find the two double bedrooms.
The ceilings with their old beams and terracotta floors complete the historical ambience.
UVA SUITE APARTMENT (2+2) (approx 90 sq.m):
Of all the apartments this one perhaps has the most character, with its charming and unusual terracotta bath tub alongside the shower, and living room in which the fireplace acts as a partition from the kitchen.
The ceiling’s wooden trusses, the numerous old brick shelves inside the niches, and warm hues of the precious floor and sofa give a cosy and welcoming feel to this splendid apartment.
GIRASOLE SUITE APARTMENT (2+3) (approx 95 sq.m):
Undoubtedly the brightest of the entire complex, with its many charming arched windows, offering stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Romantic dinners in the summer evenings can be had on the spacious terrace. Relish wines, typical cheeses and cold meats, while you lose your gaze in the myriad of colours created by the sunset.
LIMONE APARTMENT (2+2) (approx 40 sq.m):
The Limone apartment is located on the ground floor alongside the Ciliego apartment, and are both surrounded by luscious greenery.
The ceiling in timber beams and bricks is just one of the elements of this recently built apartment, in keeping with the ancient residence.
CILIEGIO APARTMENT (2+2) (approx 40 sq.m):
The splendid furniture and ceiling with its timber beams and bricks give this newly restored apartment a romantic feel. Located on the ground floor, it has direct access to the garden.
ROOM (2+2) (approx 40 sq.m):
Romantic spacious bedroom with four-poster bed, ensuite bathroom and private entrance.
The residence offers its guests a number of facilities, including a lovely big garden, a spacious solarium with private salt-water swimming pool (15x6m), a ping pong table, a 6-km riverside path starting from the residence, along which you can either walk or cycle, maybe hiring one of our bikes. An international fishing competition site can be reached on foot
Our convenient position, on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, with easy access to the motorway which covers the whole of Umbria and connects the region with Emilia, Tuscany and Lazio, enables you to enjoy the surrounding nature and visit countless artistic, naturalistic and spiritual places throughout Umbria and Tuscany. Rome and Florence are just two hours away.
You can practise tennis, golf and horse riding in the vicinity. A spa is located just half an hour away.
We spent with our 3 children 2 weeks of summer holidays at Antonella. She is a very nice, child-friendly and helpful hostess, and has countless tips for excursions in the near and far surroundings ready. The Corte del Petrogallo has a history of several hundred years as a homestead and has been carefully and tastefully renovated. The apartments are nice but simply furnished. The kitchen equipment is sufficient to prepare breakfast and simple meals. For example, we did not have an oven or microwave. Each apartment is allocated a seating area in the open air as well as sun loungers and parasols at the pleasant and clean (!) Saltwater pool. The farm is located on the outskirts of Umbertide, directly adjacent to a commercial area. But since the whole property is bordered by trees and hedges, but that does not fall on. At night it can (depending on the location of the bedroom) with the window open and give noise from the commercial area, which could disturb sensitive sleepers. Along the nearby river, it takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the pretty old town, where there are a few restaurants and ice cream parlors. It is essential to follow the recommendations of the hostess or other guests, as you can go wrong when choosing the restaurant. The city itself does not give much, except for the manageable historic center, but very close starts a mountainous national park, where you can make beautiful walks. Since Umbria is not quite as touristically developed, Antonella has put together a map of her own, where everything about the sights of the area is there. There is much to discover! We had a wonderful holiday there.

We stayed for 4 days. Antonella welcomed us with warmth and courtesy. Our apartment, the Poppy, was spotless, tidy and cared for in every detail. The location is perfect for discovering the beautiful surroundings. Perfect for visiting the main places of interest: from Perugia to Assisi, Gubbio, Spello .... The ancient residence at Petrogallo, is filled with fascination and exudes history. At our departure Antonella made sweeter our return with the delicious sweet almond sweets done by her! Definitely a place to return !!!
