Castello di Gaiche

Very nice cottage at the Castello de Gaiche in Umbria, loacted on a hill top with fabulous views of the countryside


Very nice original cottage that belongs to the 13th century Castello de Gaiche complex, located in the Umbrian countryside near Perugia and the Lago di Trasimeno. The castle is completely renovated and restored to its original style and offers stunning views from its hill top location. The cottage is surrounded by a large garden with various seating areas, olive trees and lavender bushes. The swimming pool, only available for guests, measures approximately 7,5 x 15 metres is a mere 300 m walk from the castle which guarantees the much appreciated silence at the castle and garden. 

The house is part of the separate Mill House and offers a typical Italian living-dining area with open plan kitchen and upstairs 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside a nice terrace with direct access to the garden.

The surrounding area with Lago di Trasimeno counts many picturesque villages like Panicale, Citta della Pieve and Piegaro with fine restaurants. The famous cities of Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto and Montefalco are all less than 1 hour drive. Montepulciano, Siena, Florence and Rome are within driving distance (approx 1.5 - 2h).

Just returned from our fab holiday. Lovely little cottage set in the most beautiful surroundings. At the top of a very winding road, with great views. We met a few of the other residents in the privately owned apartments in both the main building and the cottage next to this one and they were all lovely and full of useful tips about the area! A great pool not too far from the cottage, we pretty much had it to ourselves! There are some local walks up into the hillside which my Husband enjoyed, whilst I sat and enjoyed the peace and quiet in the garden! The site is very well maintained with Francesco not too far away if you need anything. The cottage itself was equipped with just about everything you need and the washing machine is located down by the pool if needed. You will definitely need a car, we did a lot of travelling around. The region and it's towns are just beautiful. Communication with Rolf both when making the initial booking and in the run up to the holiday was excellent. Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful what more can I say. Loved it and would highly recommend

If you're looking for a quiet secluded getaway then look no further. The property is situated on the grounds of a rustic complex with amazing views and areas to unwind and relax. It's easily accessible by car and has all you need for the perfect Italian escape.

The cottage is very pretty and very well equipped. The gardens and pool are brilliant for relaxation and the views are breathtaking. We had a fantastic week with two children (10 and 6) on their first holiday abroad, and they had a brilliant time. Couldn't get a reception on the TV, but preferred to be out in the garden or on the terrace playing games anyway. Thanks for a brilliant place to stay!

Beautiful little cottage up in the hills with stunning views. It has all the basics needed to explore the umbrian region. We had a fabulous holiday and we're very sad to leave. Would definitely return.

The property was clean and tidy on arrival and the local contact was very friendly and helpful. directions weren't easy to follow but Google maps saved us. A welcome pack of information in the cottage would be helpful. The pool was a very nice addition and mostly we had it to ourselves.

Umbria is beautiful and has to be experienced, as does the fabulous monte vibianno winery with their amazing hospitality.

Located at the top of a large hill means that it is well secluded. Perfect for the two of us needing some relaxation. The shared pool we had to ourselves most of the time. Definitely need a car to get here and out and about.

This place is highly recommended! Get some local wine and sit on the hilltop surveying your Kingdom.
