What we think

"Isabel and Paul have created a gorgeous retreat hidden away in the Umbrian Hills. It's a small child's paradise with shaded play areas, tons of toys, a splash pool, mini football, bikes and ride-on toys. For older kids the table tennis, badminton, mini golf and croquet will keep boredom at bay. The stunning larger pool overlooks the Abruzzo mountains - this is a good spot for all ages! Twice weekly Isabel prepares delicious home cooked meals - partake and have a night off. Cascina really is an escape from the rat race - you will be glad you found it…"

About the owners

Isabel & Paul

A few years ago we gave up our jobs in the city to pursue a dream of living and working in Italy. We spent several years painstakingly restoring our abandoned 17th-century farmstead and replanting the 20 acres of surrounding olive groves and abandoned countryside. We are passionate about three things here at Pian di Cascina; food, responsible tourism and quality family time. We are lucky enough to be living the Italian dream and enjoy helping families do the same.

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • Enjoy outdoor activities ranging from rafting to safaris, canopy tours to go carts, bike rides to archery at Activo Park Scheggino, a huge nature park only one hour drive from the villa.

  • Umbria is full of hilltop castles, and there’s no better way to get your children interested in history than through a game of damsels and dragons at a real-life castle. Carsulae is a must-see.

  • Explore Rocca Maggiore in Assisi - another partly restored castle with tunnels, towers, and turrets galore.

  • Visit Perugina Chocolate Factory for a fun family day out for all ages. Enjoy free guided tours or workshops at this chocolate lovers paradise.

  • Citta Della Domenica Park in Perugia has a miniature train, a fairytale village, zoo, playgrounds, a reptile house, botanical gardens and several other amazing attractions

  • Enjoy a spot of shopping at Rosso Pomodoro - perfect for rainy days. A bouncy castle and face painting is available at the weekends too.

  • Flex Village Water Park is only 40 minutes from the villa – take a picnic, relax on the sun loungers and let the kids explore the pools, slides and sports facilities.
