The holiday house San Pellegrino, set in the Umbrian hills, combines modern architecture with memories of a family heritage. The property on the edge of a forest once belonged to the grandparents of its current owners. The house was built in the original position of the old farmhouse. The eastern and western façades, built from the old stones, cite their predecessors and form the frame for a modern concrete structure with spacious and bright interior spaces. The double-height dining area opens up to the roof and internal windows provide transparency between rooms. The simple elegance of the furnishings emphasize the beauty of the timber ceilings and floors and the patterns of tiles. From the large kitchen you reach the inner courtyard, which is bordered by two adjoining buildings. Here there are two bedrooms, the other three are in the main house. The house is surrounded by a large property complete with a pool and green scenery.
What to do
The pool, walking, hiking, paragliding. Monte Cucco, excursions to Gubbio, Assisi and Perugia. The Frasassi caves are 35 km away. The Adriatic beaches can be reached by car in about 1 hour.
