This red brick farmhouse dating from 1777 is set in peaceful countryside, surrounded by sunflower fields. Its four apartments can be combined to accommodate up to twenty people and has been ideal for family reunions and large groups of friends who want the privacy of their own apartment, yet be close to their travel partners. The Macchione farmhouse's renaissance features include a loggia and portico, wooden beams, and cotto floors. The view over the village of Montepulciano and its lake is best enjoyed at sunset. The four rustic apartments each have two bedrooms and comfortably sleeps four people, leaving plenty of space for a fifth person in the living room. Furniture varies from antique to rustic, with the odd modern piece fitted in. During the winter months, heating is provided through radiators, with independent thermostats placed in all apartments. For longer stays, a shared washing machine has been placed in a shed outside.
The grounds of the Macchione farmhouse are ideal for children. Not only are swings and a sandpit available, but as its only neighbour is another farmhouse over one hundred meters away, and the asphalt road an additional 500 meters down the road, there is no traffic to be worried about. You are surrounded by the views of the Montepulciano lake and the sunflower fields. The large garden has made this the choice of groups of six or more friends travelling together, but still interested in their privacy by renting their own apartment. It is worth noting that the Scaletta and Loggiato apartments are connected through a door usually kept locked. Many family reunions have also been held here, and there are discounts for renting more than one apartment for more than a week, which rise with the length of the stay and the number of apartments that you rent. So what are you waiting for? Get all your friends and family together, and come on by for an unforgettable vacation.
The villages of Porto and Gioella are at a ten-minute walk or a three-minute drive, and the sandy beaches of the lake Trasimeno can be reached after a 10-minute drive.
