Spring 2023 marks the beginning of a new collaboration between Great Stays and Centumbrie, a company of excellence in the Umbrian business scenario, which will expand the selection of prestigious properties and nature experiences offered by the group’s tour operator.
Centumbrie, a brand that expresses a deep connection with the territory of Umbria, with its biodiversity and multifaceted richness, was born from the union of the two families of founders. From the very first contact, solid common roots in the values of humanity, sustainability and innovation emerged the partnership between Great Stays and Centumbrie a perfect match, the first step of a project that promises great results and thrills the promoters of this partnership, Stefano Petri and Hariet Nijhuis.
As the name suggests, Centumbrie offers a multitude of approaches to experiencing Umbria by immersing oneself in its traditions. The first is undoubtedly sensorial and passes through taste, in the Evo Bistrot, the Bar del Molino and the Libera Lepre restaurant, exclusive places where it is possible to taste the wide range of flavours derived from the company’s fields, vegetable gardens and olive groves. The extra virgin olive oil, wine, flours and numerous km0 products come from the factories where the raw materials are processed with respect for the local ecosystem. Great Stays also offers olive harvesting, in the beautiful olive groves dotting the Trasimeno hills, among the various food and wine experiences resulting from this collaboration.
Looking at the view, the villas and farmhouses managed by Centumbrie join Great Stays as exceptional locations for stays and events in Umbria, offering dream panoramas, postcard sunsets and authentic corners of paradise, embraced by greenery and overlooking the lake.
Villa Trasimena and Villa Polvese
Two farmhouses with stunning lake views that can be rented individually or together for large family gatherings and special occasions, located just a few metres from each other on a private road through the woods and hills of Lake Trasimeno. Each villa has its own panoramic swimming pool, and Villa Trasimena offers the pampering of a private spa with a heated indoor pool and Finnish sauna.
The outdoor patio of both properties is perfect for parties, aperitifs, dinners and fine dining experiences to be enjoyed outdoors.
High on a hill gently nestled over the lake landscape, Villa Battisole is a prestigious location in which to spend memorable moments, with views of the magnificent Trasimeno sunsets, a heated swimming pool and a park in which you can enjoy various activities such as tennis, bowling and fitness, or simply devote yourself to your own wellbeing, in the shade of the portico or in the exclusive cigar room dependance. The kitchen, with its state-of-the-art equipment, allows for culinary delights to be made by professional chefs or for cooking classes as well.
More intimate and enhanced by the careful preservation of details from the past, Villa Cotogna benefits from a private location near a small village, Montecolognola, a hidden gem in the Trasimeno area. The design of this property is the result of a major renovation, combining history and modernity in areas such as the kitchen, which is perfectly equipped, and the private spa, converted from the old barn. The swimming pool extends over a length of 10 metres to reveal a breathtaking panorama.
