The Villa has been beautifully restored to blend terracotta floors and wooden beams with quality furnishings and equipment to create a house which has kept its traditional charm while responding to modern needs for space, comfort and style for an unforgettable holiday in Umbria and Tuscany.

Fabulous family reunion in Villa Antico Tabaccaio
Where to begin? This villa is a dream -- large enough four our family of nine to spread out -- and cozy enough for us to come together over dinners filled with wine, pasta and laughter. The surrounding wheat fields were emerald green (due to unusually heavy rainfall this spring). Panicale, the medieval mountain village, graced the horizon to one side, while Lago Tresimano graced it on the other. Katia was incredibly helpful, warm and patient with us. The rooms were well-sized and romantic. The ceilings were highlighted with enormous exposed beams. We went on day trips to villages, towns, cities and hot springs. Please note that the pool is unheated -- with the weather cool and rainy, we couldn't use it at all -- but must be a dream in the summer. Would highly recommend this villa and is professional, gracious. lovely manager.

Umbrian Idyll
The villa is 5km from the hilltop village of Panicale. It stands apart from other houses and so was the perfect venue for our family holiday and catered well for the needs of the three generations. The spacious grounds meant that the children could play - and shout - without fear of disturbing anyone. The well-maintained pool was a welcome respite from the soaring temperatures - but not from the dive-bombing raids of the children! The villa itself has generous seating areas throughout, a large kitchen/diner and seven bedrooms, some with en suite and others with adjoining bathrooms. So gatherings of the twelve family members were readily accommodated, while providing the aged and the energy-sapped with much needed privacy when required. It was a holiday which will live long in the memory for all the right reasons.Our thanks to Katia for her help, support and unfailing cheerfulness.

Perfect stay...
We use to own a home in Paciano and are well aware of the area. Last year we booked a villa in Paciano but this year it was not available. We went back to Katia who managed last years villa and she suggested Villa Antico Tabaccaio. What another great suggestion by her.First things first, Katia is amazing and the person you want to contact when you want to book a vacation in this area. The villa itself was in a perfect location. Minutes from Chiusi train station, markets,etc. Only 3 minutes from Panicale and Paciano. The villa had 6 plus bedrooms and most had their own bathrooms. The first floor had a great gathering area,dining area and wide open and functional kitchen. The kitchen had a great island to cook from. There are windows all over the house with great views. The grounds itself had fields of sunflowers surrounding it. There are herb gardens, fig trees,etc all over. The pool was clean and at a perfect temperature. Also, the outside sitting area was vast and with plenty of seating. It had a grill to cook on and a covered area to stay away from the heat and rain. Overall a great stay and will stay again.

ASSOLUTAMENTE PERFETTO!
Siamo un gruppo di circa 20 persone e da più di dieci anni passiamo il capodanno assieme nel centro italia. L'Antico Tabaccaio è una struttura assolutamente perfetta. Per questo, contravvenendo alle nostre abitudini ci siamo tornati per due anni consecutivi! Ha un salone bellissimo che lascia senza fiato, una cucina grandissima e completamente accessioriata e delle stanze da letto pulite ed accoglienti. la risorsa più preziosa è l'accoglienza di Katiuscia, generosa, simpatica e gentilissima. andateci e starete benissimo!

July at Antico Tabaccaio
Two thumbs up! Our family and a couple of friends stayed at Antico Tabaccaio for 16 nights, and we had as many as 16 people-- for which the space is roomy. The only thing short of perfection for us was that Katia had not arranged for cooler temperatures: we were here during a record setting heat wave. But it was even hotter in Texas, from whence we hail. We have to say we would definitely do a repeat: in the old building with thick stone walls we were much cooler than we would have been at home without AC, and though temps were in the high 90's during the day, it generally got down to 72 or less at night...one night 66! With fans, we slept well. Katia is the most amazing host. She had a meal ready for us on arrival...enough that we ate leftovers more than once. There was wine from Querciolana, and we had everything we needed, and more, from bedding to dishes. The beds were comfortable. There was plenty of hot water. We grilled outside in our clothes wet from the pool, and we ate on the covered porch almost nightly. By 8 or 8:30 we were all cooled off. The building and grounds are lovely, and a covered pergola has been added near the pool since the last Google Earth photo, a nice surprise. The pool was a huge hit with all of us, to say the least. Panicale is a charming town, and we had a wonderful dinner there that Katia arranged: she even made a special trip to bring us menus to order ahead. We had another wonderful dinner there that we managed to set up for ourselves. Our side trips were to Orvieto, Assisi, Montepulciano, Pienza, Gubbio, Cetona, Cortona, Todi, Siena....and more. We had one small group that went to Florence for the day, and a couple that went to Venice for a couple of days....the most adventurous couple took off for 5 days of scuba diving on Elba. You cannot manage without cars here. But we found that taking the train from Chiusi for some outings was very easy...we found Perugia confusing and pretty much avoided it. Conad's is the place; I am still dreaming about the apricots from that grocery store. Food is just a thing beyond what we have here. I must say we were totally mystified by the little washing machine, and ended up just doing light laundry by hand, which worked fine. We were on vacation time. We LOVED this place, from the sunflowers and grapevines to our views of Panicale and Paciano from the property, waking to birdsong, the lavender and the bees (and hummingbird moths!) outside the kitchen door. Heavenly.

Words cannot describe our wonderful Wedding party, in Panicale
My husband and I married in Panicale Town Hall and stayed 4 nights at Villa Tabaccaio. Our Bridal party and immediate family also stayed with us. Our guests were dotted around the countryside! We hosted a big BBQ dinner the night before the wedding at the villa. The wedding reception was celebrated in the beautiful September sun, by the pool, in the grounds and in the Villa. We partied through the night and spent the next day by the pool. What an amazing stay, enjoying the local cuisine, people and weather of Panicale. Katia the Villa Manager was an absolute gem from the moment we inquired till beyond our stay. She is warm and honest and went all out in helping us arrange our wedding whilst we live in London. There is nothing to fault about this big old and beautiful Villa. It has everything one could need for a getaway in the countryside and if you like, for a big party with those closest to you! We cannot wait to return to the villa and to see Katia again! Highly recommended whatever it is you want to do! Thank you so much Katia, Tabaccaio and Panicale!

Winter paradise! An excellent way to start a new year...
We stayed in this beautiful villa for one week during New Year's Eve and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! There's plenty of space for a group of 12 adults and 7 children - some children even had their own room. In particular the living room and kitchen with its stunning original vaulted ceilings are spectacular! There's a beautiful fireplace that is a bit smoky, unfortunately, but in summer this is not an issue of course. The rooms were comfortable and clean. There is lots to see and do around Panicale, also for children. Tip: take them to visit the Fortress of the Lion in Castiglione del Lago. The best part of the deal was the warmth and generosity of Katia and Massimo, who were always available and brought us complimentary wine and other delicacies. We'll definitely come back...

Umbrian Heaven
We spent a lovely week this past June at Antico Tabaccaio with family. The villa is extremely spacious. The first floor living room, dining room, and kitchen are enormous, as are a number of the many bedrooms. And, those that are smaller are still quite large. There is also a very spacious second living room area on the second floor. The house has been beautifully renovated, combining its centuries old Umbrian charm with modern amenities, including plentiful bathrooms. The countryside surrounding the house consists of beautiful fields of some wheat-type grain and huge swaths of sunflowers (which, unfortunately for us, were not yet open during our early-season stay there). Panicale is a lovely, classic Umbrian hill town, with several nice and delicious restaurants and piazza with a few cafes with outdoor tables from which you can take in the slow-paced scene. There are a number of food shops where you can get fresh bread, vegetables, cheese, meat, etc. It is a 5 minute drive from the house. It's possible to walk, but it is a good 40 minute, uphill climb. Katia, the villa's owner, lives nearby and enough cannot be said about her hospitality and warmth. She truly welcomes you as family. Her gracious and warm welcome goes a long way toward making you feel at home at the house -- and in Panicale in general. Her family has lived there for generations, she knows everyone, and can help you navigate any issue, arrange a reservation for you at a restaurant in town -- or a home-cooked Umbrian meal at the villa by Nonna Rosanna, who arrived at the house with all the makings for a festive dinner. Topping it off was the chance to help her roll and form the homemade ravioli that was just one part of the meal. It was finished with her amazing homemade tiramisu! The swimming pool was a lovely amenity. The outdoor table and seating area next to the tobacco house was the setting for a candle lit dinner one night that felt straight out of a movie set in the Italian countryside. There are lots of other interesting nearby towns to visit. Day-trips to Perugia, Siena, and Montelpuciano are all within reach. All in all, a beautifully maintained home, in a magical setting, with a host about whom one can't say enough. Fantastico! We hope to return one day!

Excellent villa in a beautiful location
We were three families holidaying in this wonderful villa with our children, ages 9-16. The kids loved the pool and us adults enjoyed soaking up the Umbrian sun in the well-maintained gardens. We explored the local area-Montepulciano, Isla Maggiore and Castiglione del Lago (market Wednesday am). We also did Siena on the train. Would have liked to have done more,but a week is not enough. Katia was such a welcoming host,nothing was too much trouble. Thank you very much Katia, hope to see you in a year or two!

Fantastic villa in a beautiful location
We were a group of 8 people staying in this beautiful farmhouse villa. The villa exceeded our high expectations. There is lots of space and very comfortable. Everyone from our group said that they would like to return in the future. The indoors and outdoor space is fantastic. The area and village of Panicale are absolutely gorgeous. Every direction you look is breathtaking and the locals are so friendly and welcoming. We were very thankful to Katia who manages the property. She was able to give us lots of information and was more than happy to help us with anything we needed. She made everything very easy. We would certainly recommend this villa and a holiday in this beautiful location.

About the neighborhood
Our area is agricultural yet cultural. The former means there are fabulous scenes and vignettes everywhere, with vineyards, olive groves, lake views and utterly charming medieval villages that sometimes seem to defy gravity with their perch on the top of hills. The latter is a wonderful surprise for visitors not accustomed to the amazing historical and artistic treasures to be found here at every turn. Where else, in a village of 85 permanent inhabitants, would you find frescoes attributed to a giant of the Renaissance? You will either find by design or stumble across all kinds of notable art, architecture and important history in even the tiniest village. The area is rich in archaeological wonders from the Etruscan, Medieval, Roman, and Renaissance eras. During the summer, Panicale and the surrounding villages host numerous activities including festivals, art exhibitions, antique markets, theatrical plays and free outdoor jazz, blues, pop and classical concerts. Outdoor cafes, bars, quaint shops, and friendly people make Panicale a wonderful and atmospheric place to while away an evening or late morning. Many temporary locals (our guests from abroad) adapt the seductive Italian lifestyle quickly and with alacrity: picking a local bar as their own and visiting it every morning for a cappuccino and cornetto (pastry) and every evening for an apertivo before dinner, catching up on the local news and people watching. You will be welcomed into the community swiftly and made to feel at home. And don't forget the food and wine! Several world-renowned restaurants make Panicale a dining experience not to be missed. Or, book our Italian grandmother to spoil you with a home-cooked meal that you will remember for decades or a cooking lesson so that you can take home and replicate some of her recipes. Nearby L'Antico Tabaccaio are at least a half dozen 'hidden gems' -- wineries whose limited production and high quality make them a local open secret. Most of their wine is consumed by the knowledgeable locals, so is little known outside the region and the province. Lake Trasimeno is Italy's fourth largest lake, and is only a 7 minute drive. It offers excellent watersports, excursions and lakeside towns with good fish restaurants. There are many, many famous and notable towns within a 2-hour drive--Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia, Orvieto, Todi, Siena, Assisi–just to name a few. They are way too numerous to list. Florence is an easy day trip. For those wanting to keep extra pounds at bay while enjoying our legendary cuisine, we can show you lots of places to run, hike, horseback ride, bike and trek and hook you up with bike rentals and guides who can plot a custom route for you and take you to historical sites or wineries/local cheese artisans/historical sites along the way, as you wish. And for those for whom exercise consists of laying out their credit card, there are designer outlets, handicraft markets, and, of course Deruta ceramics. Come and enjoy!
