We're going to make this place your home

Each structure has been lovingly but rigorously restored honouring the local building techniques and materials: antique terracotta tiles and “pietra serena” stone slabs, river stones and walnut timber. In the interiors these materials were combined with African woods, steel, iron, glass.
The aim was to bring out the existing structure, ant to handle new construction, furnishings and details with a light, non-invasive hand.   Antique family furniture, comfortable sofas, lamps and lighting fixtures by renowned designers, all contribute to imbue the house with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.  Each space is made special by the unique views that are framed in the windows.

The house and the property are exceptional. The design of the home combines old world charm with modern industrial and it is perfectly blended. The views from every room are gorgeous and all look on to the lake Trasimeno-stunning. The pool is also beautifully designed and situated. Every amenity is in the house and it is perfect for groups or families.

Thank you for staing your beautiful home with our families – a place where every sunset seems impossibly more beautiful then the last. We expecially enjoyed the pool and being able to create delicious italian dishes in the wonderful kitchen! Hope tu return!

Grazie Andrea, your house is as magical as we imagined: The views of the lake from the front porch, to the BBQ, to the swimming pool, I will always remember. Also the storm from the north and the changing sky over the lake. The house is an engineer's delight with its mix of traditional construction and glass and steel.

Even though I cannot speak italian I have had LA DOLCE VITA in your villa. The house and the gardens are beautifully designed and are a visual feast. Best whishes for Roncone's future.

We dreamt of temporarily living in an Umbrian farm house....and we did! This house is in the perfect location for exploring Italy. With visits to Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Assisi and San Gimignano we couldn't have asked for a better location. We had a chef who blessed us with the best pasta and Umbrian cuisine.

Every room, every turn reveals a love of color, light and form. This is a place to think, to revive, to gather.

I don’t like to tell others about this villa, because being to enthusiastic increases the number of new visitors and reduces my possibility to rent the villa next time.

The Family

The owner, Andrea Palombaro, is an architect with a passion for historical buildings’ and old farm houses’ renovation where he creates harmonious links between “old” and “new” through the combination of original materials and masterly building knowhow.
He lives between Rome and Umbria with his wife Francesca and their daughter Eugenia.
Palombaro’s family, of Umbrian origins, are estate owners and have an important past as lumber industrialists and builders. Monte del Lago estate, that originally covered around 750 acres, was purchased in 1927 by the architect’s great grandfather and initially included an Art Nouveau villa, an oil mill, a castle and 20 farmhouses: “Roncone” is the biggest and most important of them.
