Priello Farmhouse was been built in the 1600's and has been tastefully restored keeping all the original features.
From Priello Farmhouse you have spectacular views of the Tiber Valley; the property is divided into the main farmhouse (sleeping 7 people, with 3 bathrooms) and two separate apartments (sleeping 3 people with 1 bathroom each), the layout is an excellent way of sharing your holiday with friends and family - but also allowing you to have a little privacy. The farmhouse and apartments can also be rented independently should you which to head for a romantic holiday at Priello.
In the main house, three of the four bedrooms are situated on the upper floor, the forth bedroom is a small bedroom with two single beds, off the living room: the perfect spot for somebody who is not comfortable in climbing stairs; this bedroom is also ideal for children.
The living room at Priello Farmhouse has plenty of seating around the large fireplace, uncork some wine and - trust us - that is a good story telling space. The dining room table seats 14 people and the kitchen makes you want to try your hands at making bread or rolling out some fresh pasta. The kitchen includes a dishwasher.
There are terracotta floors throughout the house, an open stone staircase, tiled bathrooms, a waterfall tub, exposed beams on every ceiling and dreamy views from every window. As soon as you step inside you will appreciate the care and heart that went into renovating this great property. Care has been taken to add comfort, while keeping that wonderful Tuscan feel. The two apartments contain their own kitchen area, a bathroom, a large bedroom and a private or common terrace (depending on which of the two apartments is chosen).
Located just outside the house, a few stone steps to a dining terrace overlooking the 6 x 12 metre swimming pool and the beautiful valley below. The stone decking around the pool allows for plenty of space to relax in the sun; as well as some shady areas, so you can still be part of the pool atmosphere while getting out of the sun. A holiday at Priello Farmhouse in Tuscany is a paradise which makes you just want to spend all day around the pool, stare across the valley and do absolutely nothing.
The rustic-style house features a terrace, a pizza oven, an outdoor barbeque and a covered terrace with darts board, where you can have your morning coffee, enjoying the view down the lake.
The rustic kitchen at Priello Farmhouse in Tuscany
The driveway at Priello Farmhouse is approximately 1.3 kilometres in length from the main road to Priello; with the driveway being a mixture of paved and gravel - it's a fun road you will learn to love!
The road winds up to two farms, woods, over a little waterfall, past the neighbours around a corner; past hayfields and right when you think "Is this the right road?" you will see the classic cypress lined drive and you have arrived. It is less than a mile to the main road, but it seems a world away with peace and quiet you can only dream of.
This part of the Tiber Valley is right in the middle of the Italian peninsula; in Tuscany, but borders on the counties of Umbria, Marche and Romagna, regions with varied characters which at different times have influenced its history, culture and landscape leaving marks which can still be felt today. It is an area, which is between the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic seas. It has a complex story, as it is not only the valley where the river Tiber has its source, a river which has shaped the fertile plain for thousands of years; but it is also mountainous. Actually it is more mountainous than flat, but even in this case, it is impossible to give a unanimous definition to the hills and mountains of this area.
