Villa Pian del Rocchio - Come and find yourself

In Umbria, the green heart of Italy, there is a place that speaks to you with tranquillity and peace.
A place where you are embraced by nature and history. Where you realize that above all else, being on vacation means getting closer to yourself.

THE PLACE
In the municipality of San Venanzo, in the province of Terni, within the Orvieto tourism district, rises Pian del Rocchio, the plain that is home to the Villa that bears its name.
- Villa Pian del Rocchio, a "Vacation House" surrounded by a large garden with pool, is situated in a beautiful, typically Umbrian green upland plain amid gentle hills sloping towards the Tiber Valley below.
- In a triangle right between Orvieto, Perugia and Todi - all just minutes away - Villa Pian del Rocchio is 2 kilometres from the medieval village of Collelungo, and 4 and 5 kilometres from Marsciano downhill and San Venanzo uphill respectively.
- Visitors to Pian del Rocchio discover Umbria, with its unbelievable quiet,clean air, colours and aromas. Plus a house as comfortable and welcoming as your own. This is the place for the simple things in life, but it is also a place surrounded by history and beauty, from which you can visit the marvels of artistic Medieval cities.

THE VILLA
Villa Pian del Rocchio is a place designed to accomodate the interests of the people staying there, to respect their inclinations and their wish to stay where they feel truly at ease.
- Ideal for groups of friends and family, Villa Pian del Rocchio is perfect for anyone looking for a unique experience, excellence, and attention to detail combined with the simple, natural hospitality of a place designed to be comfortable and to adapt to its Guests.
- The entire "day-time area" is on the ground floor, and the upper floors, with 10 beds, house the "night-time area."

THE GROUND FLOOR ( 200 sq.m. )
The ground levels have floors in "cotto fiorentino" - Florentine-style fired brick. The doors and windows are in solid chestnut, with roll-up screens.
- The Villa is furnished with pieces that combined with the charming colours of the upholstery and wallpaper, they create a warm, family atmosphere.
- The Sitting room is furnished with comfortable sofas and armchairs, plus a spacious built-in bookshelf that also contains a stereo system and satellite television. The large fireplace, with its massive frame of white travertine, gives the ambience character and warmth.
- The Dining room has two large windows, one looking out on the garden and the other on the flowerbed with its specimens of "antiques roses". The walnut table seats 10-12 guests. The furnishing is complete with a comfortable, colourful "Dormeuse" for a relaxing afternoon siesta in the cool shade of the house.
- The Game room has two game tables (backgammon, chess board, bridge cards, board games, and bidding box are available) as well as a harmoniously old-fashioned regular billiards table.
- The spacious yet cosy hi-tech Kitchen is completely furnished with cherry wood shelving and fixtures, and equipped with a large oven and range, a refrigerator / freezer with ice dispenser, a built-in microwave, and dishwasher. Beside the oval breakfast table is a small, built-in fireplace lined in lava stone and decorated with the fruit and flower motifs typical of the ceramics of the nearby town of Deruta.
- The parlour area has a "guest" bath and the ground-floor Laundry room is equipped with a washer and ironing supplies.
- The large, cool and sheltered Veranda adjacent to the house has a large, rectangular wrought-iron table easily capable of accommodating 12/14 guests for all outdoor occasions.

THE FIRST FLOOR ( 100 sq.m. ) and THE MANSARD ( 50 sq.m. )
The Bedrooms all have warm, light oaken parquet floors and beds may quickly rearranged to suit yhe Guest's needs.

Other Property Features & Appliances:

Slightly lower than the house, the pool is surrounded by flowerbeds colourfully resplendent in the summertime, and a pleasant rock garden.
* The Pool is a 6 by 12 metre rectangle. On its short side, an additional semicircular area of 5 m. in diameter facilitates getting in and out of the water with large, easy stairs, nice and shallow for the smallest guests.
* The bottom slopes down to varying depths (from 0.50 to 2.30 m.), thereby permitting both children and adults to swim in safety.
* The pool lining is sand-coloured, giving the water a natural sky-blue hue.
* By the pool is a handy hot- and cold-water shower.
* The sunbathing area, paved in terracotta bricks, allows guests to take the sun at all hours of the day, as they relax on comfortable beach chairs and lounges.
* Large olive trees shade the adjacent lawn.
* A scenic corner near the well by the pool includes a round wrought-iron table and umbrella.
* By the well, there is also a barbecue, for tasty grilling in the cooler evening hours.

Wonderful villa, everything you could ask for. Beautiful setting, great base location to travel to Orvietio, Assisi, Todi, Deruta, Bevagna, Montefalco,, Rotocastello, Collelunga, Monte Castello, Perugia and Marsciano. We were four couples and had plenty of private space and together space. Fun time by the pool, nice to sit by the pool in the mornings.Gaetano and Clara were wonderful host, lovely people, they were very helpful and understanding.Conti Faina is a wonderful vineyard and olive grove most visit.. Could not have asked for a more pleasant place to stay on the amazing trip. Thank you Gaetano and Clara. I apologize that this posting is so late, please forgive us

We have stayed or visited with others at Pian del Rocchio on 3 separate occasions with the first being in 2005, then in 2006 and again last year with plans to return as often as we can. This is a beautiful setting with all the amenities that you could hope for including a large kitchen with full-size refrigerator as well as top of the line appliances including a meat slicer which allowed us to purchase a large piece of proscuitto that we could slice as needed. If you like to cook like we do, then the kitchen is an important feature. There is enough room at the villa for family and friends to spread out both inside and outside. The location is excellent as well being close to Marsciano which has all your shopping and banking needs covered. It is also within easy driving distance of Deruta (beautiful hand-made pottery); Orvieto; Assisi; Spoleto; Perugia; Lake Trasmino and numerous other hill towns. There is so much to see and do in the area. Or, you can relax by the pool and enjoy the tranquility of the view. There are numerous restaurants in the area if you choose to eat out. There are also several restaurants that will prepare you a full dinner which we requested on the day that all our guests were arriving at different times. Our host answered all our questions before we arrived and was available at all times by phone. We highly recommend staying at Pian del Rocchio.
