Today we take you to discover three exclusive properties, which over time have preserved the typical features of country farms, located in particularly pleasant locations: Lake Trasimeno, Montepulciano and Cortona.


The dream of a sunset on the lake to be admired every day becomes reality in this exclusive Umbrian residence, nestled in a magnificent location overlooking Trasimeno. The green of the surrounding countryside and the blue of the sky on clear days constitute the ideal setting for experiencing infinite emotions: we welcome you to Podere Fiji, near Passignano Sul Trasimeno (PG).

Warmth and tradition define the interiors of this property where wood is the protagonist and gives character and authenticity. The large living area allows you to fully enjoy conviviality, in every season. The atmosphere is relaxed and enveloping, totally transmitting the country character of the surrounding context.

Colors, scents and truly evocative scenery distinguish the garden of Podere Fiji: over 10 hectares of greenery, with tall trees, an olive grove and delightful shaded corners where you can eat outdoors, where it is also possible to create a fantastic panoramic swimming pool for where you can admire the incomparable sunsets over Lake Trasimeno.


In the countryside of Montepulciano (SI), authenticity, warmth and respect for tradition come together magnificently in Podere San Pietro, an ancient farmhouse carefully restored, which proudly displays traces of its past.

Once a peasant home, Podere San Pietro has kept all the original features intact. The large living area with fireplace has a vaulted terracotta ceiling and large central arch, a reminder that this was once a shelter for animals. The reddish handmade terracotta gives a unique light to this environment.

The location that frames Podere San Pietro is open and sunny. In the center of a lush garden of approximately 0.5 hectares with olive grove, barbecue and dining area, there is a fantastic swimming pool that emerges in contrast in color with the green of the garden and the red of the exposed bricks of the farmhouse. The solarium area is in travertine and there is also an external shower.


Podere Montanare is a small gem with typical Tuscan features located in the countryside of Cortona: a stone and brick farmhouse with ancient charm which sees the beautiful external access staircase preserved. The worked stone frames that emphasize the doors and windows are particularly pleasant.

In all the interior spaces of Podere Montanare, we breathe a delicate touch of romanticism, thanks to the choice of pastel nuances. The pickled wooden beams, as well as the colors chosen for the walls, the wooden window frames and the furnishing accessories, give the rooms a deep brightness and a pleasant feeling of airiness.

A few steps from the farmhouse, there is a beautiful swimming pool immersed in a lush flat garden. All around, the fascinating atmosphere and the unmistakable colors of the landscapes surrounding the historic Tuscan city of Cortona.
