In the tradition of Umbrian farm architecture, Roncone comprises several structures, which were built and expanded over time as needs evolved.
The main house
The main house is built on two floors in an L shape with windows looking out to Lake Trasimeno, and inwards on a quiet garden courtyard. It can accomodate 10 people, there are 5 bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms, 2 vast living areas, 2 fireplaces,1 full kitchen and housekeeper’s quarters. The house is beautifully appointed, with an elegant and relaxed mix of modern design and antique furniture.
The upper level of the house is accessible from the wooden staircase or from the exterior entrance.
The living room: sunset light, beauty and relax
The large and elegant living room is divided into different sitting areas and a dining area. It opens onto the terrace on the side overlooking the lake and on the other onto a covered pergola for al fresco breakfasts and lunches.
The kitchen: very spacious and fully equipped
Very spacious and cleverly designed it has all the professional equipment you can expect to find to practice your cooking skills while chatting with friends. You can also just sit back and enjoy the services of a local cook who will prepare all manner of delicious Umbrian delicacies.
The outside kitchen and BBQ for unforgettable dinners
The outside kitchen (the old henhouse) is situated between the two main buildings and has a unique view over the lake, is fully equipped and gives you the opportunity to cook al fresco and to barbecue under the pergola covered in wisteria.
The pool is exceptional
Set in an ancient olive grove and surrounded by a neatly tended lawn, the pool reflects the sky and gently blends into its surroundings, without the blaring contrast that is typical of swimming pools. From the pool you have unparalleled views of the Castel di Zocco, of Lake Trasimeno and its Polvese Island.
Size: 16 x 6 meters (53 ft x 20 ft); covered in large local stones both inside and out to mirror the materials on the house; wide set of stairs for easy access and relaxation; shallow wading pool along the entire length; two shaded areas under pergolas; changing room; full bathroom with shower; outdoor shower.
The garden is elegantly integrated in the secular olive grove
Conceived in collaboration with a British landscape architect who is a friend of the owner, it utilizes native fragrant plants, with few well-founded exceptions.
The compound is approximately 20,000 square meters (5 acres) and is completely fenced in, with an electric gate.
All around there is a 900 meters path where you can walk, run or even bike.
The tennis table area
You can play table tennis just down the house in a shaded area viewing the lake.
