Poggio alle Vigne, Lungarotti’s agritourism
A 17th century farmhouse, not far from Perugia, hosts 10 apartments from two to seven people, an ideal base for a vacation in Umbria.
“Poggio alle Vigne” is located on the hillsides between Torgiano and Brufa. A glance at the surroundings quickly explains its name: vineyards and olive groves alternate in stately and orderly rows. A short white gravel road descends towards the left with olive trees on one side and a vine pergola on the other, arriving at a 17th century farmhouse bordered by a thick hedge of scented rosemary. A beautiful field with large maritime pines, olive trees and mulberry trees surrounds the cottage.
From the fruits and flowers of the surrounding countryside are named 10 apartments immersed in tranquility and made unique by the pristine environment, the refinement of the furnishings and the quality of the discreet, essential, not intrusive welcome.
Le More: The large arched window at the entrance illuminates the living room, where the ceiling shows its sturdy beams. Open plan kitchen. The beautiful countryside that colors the valley is at the center of the view that can be admired from the bedroom.
L’Olivo: The fireplace is the heart of this apartment, an ideal place to better manage your time by planning easy excursions. Wonderful furniture throughout. Under the evocative beamed ceiling on the ground floor, there is the large living room, with a functional kitchenette next to it, while on the first floor there are two bedrooms, with wrought iron beds.
La Rosa di Macchia: The apartment is on two levels in the old barn of the farmhouse, in the Poggio area nearby the swimming pool. The living area is large and comfortable: fireplace, marble table and living room with floral-toned fabrics. The spiral staircase leads to the sleeping area where the bedrooms open out onto a wide balcony.
La Ginestra: An external stone-paved terrace invites one to enter into this apartment where the attention to detail is evident by the design of wrought iron chosen for the furnishings, in the living room as well as in the bedrooms. Well organized, comfortable spaces include a beamed ceiling in the master bedroom and the studio, where brick-work arches frame the desk.
Il Rosmarino: The living room with its beamed ceiling is large and welcoming. Wide arches divide the space: on one side are the fireplace and living room, on the other is the dining room. The fabrics, draperies and furnishings in a red-based colour scheme warm up the bedroom.
Il Corbezzolo: The external staircase is a traditional element of the local old farmhouses. Now it is covered with climbing plants and it leads to the welcoming apartment. The ample living room revolves around the fireplace and a loft expands the possibilities of use.
Il Fico: The traditional external staircase leads to this apartment. Ceilings with white beams, a shelf-partition between living room and kitchen. In the living room is a lovely trompe l’oeil depicting a fig-tree. Blue and white is the color scheme of the two bedrooms.
Il Ginepro: A particular double-wide version of the traditional external staircase leads to this apartment that is enchanting both outdoors and inside. The living room revolves around the fireplace featuring a pensive Satyr. The blue and white color scheme unites the living room and kitchen décor, creating a serene ambiance.
L’Uva Spina: The outdoor patio is set between the dominating green of the lawn, the ivy-covered walls, and the pink flowers of the oleanders. Inside, the apartment is on two levels, with ceilings featuring the original large beams. The wrought-iron spiral staircase leads to the welcoming and tranquil bedrooms on the upper floor.
