A Stunning Palazzo
My fiancee and I invited 16 adults and two children for a small intimate wedding, and week of relaxation in the beautiful Italian countryside at Palazzo Prugnoli. It was the perfect place to have a wedding, it was the best week of my life.
When we arrived at the property I was very impressed by it's beauty and grace. The house has an amazing sense of space, and every detail is perfect. The entire house was spotlessly clean, and furnished with a mix of lovely antiques and classic contemporary pieces of furniture.
The kitchen is a dream for group cooking. There is every appliance or utensil you need to cook. The kitchen has a 4-foot-long antique marble basin sink (not shown on the website) that is stunning. We cooked for 18 people all week long in the kitchen, and enjoyed every moment of it. There are enough wine/champagne glasses, dishes, and cutlery for at least 25 people. The stove is amazing, a work of art.
The bedrooms are very large and lovely, with crisp white sheets, hotel towels, high-end firm mattresses, and pretty tapestry quilts. The bathtubs and showers are amazing. We never ran out of hot water or water pressure, which is very unusual in Italy.
The grounds are stunning, and the view is an ever changing mesmerizing vista. The house is within walking distance to a pristine medieval town, but it feels like it is in the middle of the Umbrian countryside (which it is). There are no other houses, cars, paved roads, or commercial buildings visible from the Palazzo, though they are nearby for convenience. The outdoor chess set was a huge hit with everyone, there is also ping pong and croquet.
M.S. Tiberina, the town, was charming and beautiful. Though, there was not a lot to do there except have a drink or meal overlooking the Umbrian countryside, which was very lovely. We visited Citta Di Castello, Gubbio, Perugia, Montepulciano, Crete Sienese, and Cortona. We also went horse back riding five minutes from the Palazzo, and flower picking. We visited nearby farms and vinyards to buy local food and wine products.
The owners were a delight, always reachable by phone. They do not live on or near the property. The caretakers of the property, who were charming, were on hand to meet us, give us the keys, and answer any questions. They do not live near the property and we had the entire place to ourselves for the week.
Our family loved the Palazzo, I highly recommend this villa.
