There is an instant wow factor on opening the front door of Laguscello's 18th century farmhouse and stepping into a towering floor-to-roof hall with a ceiling of sweet chestnut beams soaring high above. An original arch on one side opens directly into a lounge, with comfortable leather sofas, satellite TV and DVD player. To the right is a games room with table tennis and table football. Ahead is a massive kitchen which stretches the length of the house and opens directly onto the garden through two huge doorways. At one end is the kitchen with contemporary quality fittings, topped with local stone and an island unit with stools on one side. There is a small fridge here, cooker and dishwasher. In the middle of the room, a huge dining table made especially for Laguscello by a local carpenter, seats 12 comfortably. It stretches towards a cosy seating area in front of an open fire. There is a separate, fully equipped utility room with large fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and dryer, plus a shower room/wc on the ground floor. Upstairs are four big, airy bedrooms, to sleep 8-10 people + baby (free cot available), each with an en-suite bathroom. One has its own balcony with a table and chairs. There are two single beds which can be used for children/teenagers sharing a room. All the rooms are exceptionally spacious with traditional beamed ceilings and handmade cotto floors. Decoration is simple with clean white walls and pale grey paintwork on doors and shuttered windows. All windows have fly screens and there are room fans - although Laguscello's walls are so thick, that the rooms stay cool, even during the height of summer. White bed linen and towels are provided and there are plenty of books, toys and board games, plus unlimited wi-fi inside and out. The original outdoor pizza oven is a great favourite with guests and can also be used for roasting meat as well as for experimenting with pizzas! Many guests find they love Laguscello's pool, garden and amenities so much, that they can barely tear themselves away to explore the many wonderful sights close by or a little further afield - including Rome and Florence, which can be enjoyed for a day out by train from nearby Orvieto station. The Little House, built in 1924 and attached to one end of the main farmhouse, offers additional accommodation for up to four people for parties renting the main farmhouse only - please ask Jane and Peter for details if you might be interested in adding this to your booking. It works especially well if your party has several generations - as a bolthole for grandparents maybe - or several families. The Little House has its own entrance through a covered terrace with table and chairs and with the front door opening directly into the pretty kitchen. Although simple it is fully equipped, including a hob and oven, washing machine and dishwasher, with a dining table in front of a wood burning stove. An archway leads through to the lounge with windows on two sides capturing the evening sunshine. Upstairs is a spacious main bedroom with king size bed and French doors leading onto the large first floor terrace with breathtaking views on three sides. There is also a smaller room with a double bed, which also has its own door to the terrace. There is a shared bathroom with a large walk-in shower. All bedrooms at rooms at Laguscello have free-standing fans and every window has a flyscreen. The Little House can be rented in winter and has a wood burning stove, which also heats the water and radiators - logs are provided.
