The restoration of this old farm house was completed, by us, in 2017. It was the farm building to a much larger property, now known as Villa Baroque.
We are located just outside the village of Badia Petroia , up a tree lined road some 8 km west of Trestina, 45 km North of Perugia in the Upper Tiber valley.
The middle third of this property was first built as a defensive watch tower and dates from the 13th century. It formed part of a line of towers running along, what was then, the border between Umbria and Tuscany.
The two adjoining sides of this building are believed to have been added around 300 years ago. The left side was, until recently, a tobacco drying tower and the right side was mainly used for animals, staff accommodation and storage.
The property upstairs has 2 very large en-suite bedrooms which face east and, through the French windows with Juliet balconies, you can see the swimming pool and the wonderful panoramic views.
Both bedrooms have US Queen size double beds, bedside tables, chest of drawers, double wardrobe and HDTV. There is also a single bed and a full size cot available.
The en-suite marble bathrooms have walk-in showers, sink, bidet and toilet.
We can also provide a baby bath and high chair if needed.
