Villa Pian Di Cascina

Child friendly cottage, Italy

About Villa Pian Di Cascina

Escape to the green heart of Italy and enjoy the freedom of self-catering with the luxury of hotel services in beautiful accommodation perfect for a family escape or large group adventure. Whether your preference is for traditional rustic charm or modern eco-friendly accommodation there is something for everyone at Villa Pian di Cascina. Built on a 17th century farmstead the villa sits in over 20 acres of beautiful Umbrian countryside. The organic farm provides fresh veg and olives for pressing, and an on-site restaurant, bread and wine deliveries means you really can relax and enjoy this beautiful part of Italy. Cookery courses give you the skills to continue your holiday feeling back at home. The kids will be in their element playing in the pool, picking raspberries, collecting eggs or messing around on the play lawn. And if you need some grown-up time take advantage of the babysitting services and treat yourself to a meal out in one of the local restaurants (or have an on-site massage and head back to your villa for a snooze... Bliss!).

The Away with the Kids review

The Accommodation

Paul and Isabel have tastefully and painstakingly converted the traditional 16th century farmhouse and granary into 7 beautiful properties accommodating groups from 2 to 7 + cot. In addition to this The Olivetto (sleeps 4) and The Pinolo (sleeps 2 + child) are brand new purpose-built holiday homes offering stunning open plan living with eco credentials to boot.

Pool towels, bed linens, cloths and tea towels are all provided and a complimentary clean and linen change is included in stays of over 1 week. Maid service, extra towels and clean linen are always available should you require them (additional charges may apply).

Complimentary wifi is available throughout the accommodation and the well appointed kitchens include excellent cooking facilities, a dishwasher and coffee machine. You’ll also have your own private outdoor terrace or lawn in which to while away an evening.

Each property has a flat screen TV with a media player offering a range of TV and films for all ages – in English and is equipped with a range of toys, games and books for children.

Three apartments are equipped for people with restricted mobility. The area itself, however is not so well suited to wheelchairs as Villa Pian di Cascina is located on the top of a steep hill - and due to planning restrictions, walk ways are gravelled. However, there's an access path to the pool and a strong willingness to help out should you need any - if, (like me) you consider this place so desireable you're going anyway, you will be most welcome.

For children

You couldn’t ask for anything more when it comes to peace of mind on holiday with your little ones. A baby ordering service means you can pre-select formula, nappies, creams and food so it’s waiting for you on arrival. No mad dash to the local supermarket required here.

Also available is a huge selection of baby and child equipment to borrow including cots, cot linen, grow/sleeping bags, bed guards, high chairs, baby monitors, sterilisers, baby baths, booster seats, food warmers, Bumbo, play mats, changing mats, hand blenders for weaning, pushchairs, baby chairs, baby walkers, activity mats, back carriers, potties, loo seat reducers, child steps, non slip bath mats, night lights, microwaves, and a DVD player.

A heated and shaded splash pool for little ones is also on site near to the south-facing main pool and the whole gated pool area has been refurbished with non-slip tiles.

When (if!) they want a change from splashing around the play lawn has oodles of kit to keep the little ones happy swinging, climbing, crawling, riding, digging, sliding, bouncing, skipping…….

If your little ones are lucky they might be able to collect an egg from one of the farm chickens and in season there is raspberry picking on site.

For Grown-Ups

There really is no excuse to come back from Villa Pian di Cascina without that rarest of feelings - relaxed! The arrival shopping service means the wind down starts before you get there. Daily bread and pastry deliveries, and chilled beer and wine are available on-site. If cooking feels too much then indulge in delicious home-cooked Italian dishes made from locally sourced produce twice a week at the on-site restaurant La Tavernetta. If you want to venture out for day trips or for an evening without the children there is a babysitting service available too.

For a total chill book yourself in for one of a variety of massage treatments for body and face – relaxing, stress relieving, sports, lymphatic draining and circulatory in the dedicated treatment room.

Places to visit

There are water parks and adventure playgrounds to explore, climbing experiences to conquer and fossils to be found all within 40 minutes of the villa. A little further there are theme parks, boating lakes, castles, caves, rafting, and the Umbrian capital, Perugia all within easy reach for a day trip.

Within the Umbria region you can visit the medieval towns of Gubbio, Spello, Todi and Spoleto. Orvieto and Asissi are also close enough for day trips. If you have a little extra time then the Tuscan towns of Florence, Siena, Montalcino and Montepulciano are within driving distance as are the beaches of Sirolo in Marche.

Pets

Whilst not allowed during high season, pets may be accommodated during out of season months - please ask.

Nearest Airports

Lasting Impression

A stunning location in which to fully relax and enjoy your family holiday. With the facilities of a hotel and the freedom of self-catering you have the best of both worlds. Explore the region’s beautiful countryside and towns or take it easy with days around the pool. 1 week may not be enough.
