GARDEN AND POOL
Casale Lavanda is surrounded by 1 hectar of well-kept garden hemmed with herb borders and partially covered with white gravel. The garden has multiple sitting/lounging areas, shaded areas and a large pergola to enjoy eating outside or just to take in the view and spectacular sunsets admiring rolling hills and the lovely village of Pesciano. In front of the house there is an area with lawn and a beautiful hammock under the shade of trees.
The pergola, outdoor dining table and the pool area are equipped with rustic-chic outdoor furniture, a gas barbecue and a freestanding patio gas heater (for dinners outside in Spring or Fall), ideal meeting place for our guests. After sunset, for alfresco dinners, the garden is lit by several solar lamps that create a charming atmosphere.

The villa is in a secure area of the Umbrian countryside, there is a house that borders the garden in the pool area but the privacy is guaranteed by a hedge of shrubs and trees. The front and panoramic area of the garden, overlooking the valley, has total privacy from that side. The villa is not fenced, except for low hedge, a small white road runs behind the house, not visible from the garden and pool. This road ends a few hundred meters further reaching another home. Very few cars pass every day, sometimes none or only the one of the postman.
The neighbors are pleasant people and very discrete, they permanently live in another region and only occasionally are in their Umbrian house. So far no guests have ever complained or had privacy concerns staying at Casale Lavanda.

TODI, 13 kms away
Reached by an exciting drive through winding roads and hairpin turns, this ancient city is an unexpected delight. Todi has retained much of the original features and charming character of the town's diverse historical periods in the face of passing time. With a rich history that dates back to around 1300 BC, Todi was settled by the Umbri, an ancient pre-Etruscan people who gave it the name Tudere.
