Memories of our Umbria Palace


This time last year, our family holiday to Europe was coming to an end.  One of the highlights was staying at what I called our Umbrian Palace, Laguscello. This beautiful farm house was tucked away from the traffic, offered endless views of rolling hills, modern, clean, pretty pool, and it was luxurious and spacious. It even had a couple of hammocks and a wood-fired oven.

Just a couple of minutes drive to Castel Giorgio for necessary supplies, and a short drive to pretty medieval Orvietto, it was perfectly located. I want to live there.

I’m dreaming of Umbria and Italy now.  Don’t you wish you were there too?





The Little House

The “Little House” that adjoins the main farm house has been renovated since our stay last July (2012) – it wasn’t open / available when we were there. Together, the main house and little house sleeps 14 people. It’s so gorgeous, don’t you think? I’d love to sit on the balcony every sunset with a nice glass of something and contemplate the world. Sigh.

Lagoscello is located in Umbria, just over the Lazio border (1.5 hours drive from Rome).

Update June 2022: I was notified that Lagoscello is under new ownership and no longer available as a holiday home.

  1. Gina Bortoletto was just lovely there!! Maybe we should go back to check how the rest of the restoration to the attached “little house” turned out?
