Coming from the North, you take exit Chiusi, when coming from the South, Fabro. The center of Piegaro is only 2km from the house. It offers a solution to all your basic needs & wants: 2 small grocery stores, a bakery, butcher, a bar and a restaurant. The main grocery stores can be found in Tavernelle di Panicale, less than 10 minutes by car.
Piegaro lies within 15 minutes of 2 charming villages as they can only be found in Italy; Citta Della Pieve and Panicale. These cosy villages are an attraction for tourists because of their unique location as well as their variety of bars & restaurants. More information on these villages can be found in our villa.
