Tenuta Sospesa is a traditional stone-built country house, dating back to the Eighteenth Century that has been attractively restored. The beautiful architecture of the main house is adorned with a turret and external staircase, typical of the region. Upstairs are the original terracotta floor tiles, wood-beamed ceilings and walls stripped back to reveal the original stone.The Villa Tenuta Sospesa can be rented entirely and exclusively (max 12 -15 guests, with young children) but can also be divided into smaller apartments to accommodate groups of 2/4/6/8/10/12 people. All the apartments are independent and self- contained. They all enjoy complete privacy with their private garden, dining area, barbecue and parking. Tenuta Sospesa is located in the gentle Umbrian hills of central Italy, overlooking the beautiful historic village of Montepetriolo. It is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, fields of sunflowers and red poppies. It is situated at a stone's throw from Lake Trasimeno, is only 15 minutes' from Perugia (with its small but international airport) and only 30 minutes' drive from Tuscany. Its fantastic location makes it the perfect starting point for visiting the whole of Central Italy.

At Tenuta Sospesa, distil the summer sunlight
of all summers of all time
A small wooden bench,
so comfortably worn by years napping in the shade
The thought of a holiday
alighting where it will...
class, taste & fascination
Majestic cypresses and mulberry trees, together with the surrounding peaceful farmland, give complete privacy to the property. Guests can enjoy outdoor tables and pergolas shaded by trees, to soak up the beautiful panorama, the summer warmth or eat al fresco. There are also winding pathways to explore and an exquisite gazebo covered with climbing plants, as well as a swimming pool hidden by cypresses and rambling roses. It is also possible to use the old bread oven for barbecues or to bake pizza under the stars.
Held aloft, suspended, let go
... and lift off
I can feel it, it is here, as I lie upon my hammock
in the absent hour
What we mean by holiday:
a bubble of eternity, then maybe a nap...
between tuscany, umbria
& lake trasimeno
