Essiccatoio is a fantastic Tuscan villa in the hills on the Umbrian-Tuscan border between Città del Castello and Perugia. It is a property composed of three individual houses, in one lives the owners. Essiccatoio is the largest of the two rental villas on the property. When renting this villa the other is not rented out.
On the lavender producing Pereto estate where the villa is located, is a pretty pool, found in a secluded area surrounded by plenty of local plants with a view to the nearby fields. At the pool is a covered furnished terrace to relax out of the warm Tuscan sun.
Sitting on a higher part of the property, the larger, three floor cottage is surrounded by a lovely lawn. To the front is a wonderful, covered terrace with hammocks and furnished with a table and chairs. Many of the original Tuscan villa features of the cottage have been maintain, such as the terracotta floors throughout, the original wooden internal door and a ceiling of terracotta tiles and wooden beams.
Inside is a lovely entrance hall with exposed stone walls and terracotta stairs to the first floor. To the left is the lounge. It is a bright room with a huge window looking out at the garden. It is tastefully furnished with a modern double sofa, two matching armchairs and a third leather armchair, all around a majestic, antique stone fireplace which can be used for the cooler evenings.
To the other side of the entrance hall is the open plan kitchen and diner which has access to the covered terrace outside. The brightly coloured room has a traditional built-in kitchen which has modern conveniences such as gas hobs, an small oven, dishwasher and a large fridge with separate freezer compartment. In the centre of the room is a wooden table with chairs while to one side is a huge cupboard for storage.
The stairs lead to the first floor. Off the landing is a large bathroom with tub with a handheld shower. To the right of the stairs is a bedroom with a sloped roof, care needs to be taken along the two sides of the room. The double bed is located in the centre of the room, while wardrobe space is provided on either side.
The other bedroom on this floor has an en-suite bathroom with shower. The room is a double with a pretty wooden bed and a matching chest of drawers. This also has a sloped roof, although it is higher than the first bedroom.
The final double bedroom is on the top floor of the tower. It is a brightly coloured room with an antique chest of drawers for storing clothes. The roof slopes to a floor high window which together with a skylight provides the room with light.
The owners live on the property but do not share the pool. There is also a small shop selling lavender products on the property.
Note that there are 7 cats and 2 dogs roaming freely on the property.

Stay: July 2014
Pros The owners were so warm and welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. They provided an excellent grocery pack and a lovely selection of home produced wine, olives, honey and lavender products on arrival. The house was in a wonderfully quiet location with stunning views all around and excellent opportunities for star watching! There were lots of lovely places to eat and relax outside and the lovely private pool was refreshing on hot days. Our teenage children loved the pool, the use of the owners' bikes and making friends with the many cats. We didn't miss having a TV because there was a good Wi-fi system in the house and a fantastic hi-fi.
Local attractions Montone lovely hilltop town with small convenience shops and lots of restaurants. We loved having coffee in the square and exploring the tiny streets. Our favorite restaurant was in the square called L'Antica Osteria. Great service and reasonable prices. Lots of local food including truffles.
