La Rondinaia, Umbria

Why stay at La Rondinaia?

‘The Swallow’s Nest’ – has a commanding position with 270-degree views of the cultivated fields, valleys and Appennine foothills beyond. The villa is a three-hundred year old, newly and exquisitely restored stone farmhouse near the Umbrian town of Pietralunga.

Pietralunga, the lively and walled medieval hilltown, serves as the local commercial centre and is only 8km’s away. It has two bakeries, two supermarkets, a butcher shop, a bank and several charming restaurants. One restaurant, La Locanda del Borgo, is featured in the Gambero Rosso guide, and it is here that the owners of La Rondinaia have arranged wi-fi use for guests.

Medieval Gubbio and Citta di Castello are a scenic twenty-five minute drive away. La Rondinaia is built in the classic Umbrian style with exposed chestnut beam ceilings, thick stucco walls and handmade terracotta floor tiles. With the style, the villa consists of three en-suite bedrooms – each bathroom has an enclosed shower – a large, modern, fully-equipped farm kitchen with separate dining area, and a large sitting room surrounding a massive stone fireplace.


Two bedrooms each contain a wrought iron queen size bed and traditional furnishings, while the other bedroom has a pair of twin beds to comfortably accommodate a party of 6 persons. Every window commands stunning views of the valley and gentle hills below. The kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator, dishwasher, five-burner gas cooktop, convection oven and state of the art cookware.

There are CD and DVD players for guests’ entertainment. The laundry room contains a front-loading washing machine.  La Rondinaia is situated on three serene and panoramic acres landscaped with lavender, herbs, olives and cypresses adjoined by oak forests, affording complete privacy for its 10 x 5 metre swimming pool. A traditional vine covered pergola and expansive brick patio equipped with wood and wrought iron table and chairs provide guests the opportunity to dine alfresco.

Perugia, Assisi, Deruta, Cortona and Sansepolcro are all less than an hour to the south and north. Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano and Pienza may be reached within a ninety minutes drive. Drivers to any of these cities can use scenic country roads or super highways. Even Rome can be explored as a daytrip, reachable within two and a half hours. The owners provide a welcome basket and in addition, the housekeeper will do some extra shopping for your arrival.
