It is about a 10 minute drive to the centre of Chiusi Chianciano and within walking distance of the Il Casale restaurant, just 5 minutes from the centre of Paciano. Paciano itself is a charming village with a number of excellent restaurants as well as a village store and the most amazing family bakery which opens twice a week.

A note from Jo
This property is one of a dozen villas and apartments that we have in Paciano. We think it's a great village. There are a good selection of restaurants to try and a holiday here is very much an opportunity to enjoy an authentic stay in Umbria. The owners of the villa take such great care of all our guests. You'll receive an incredibly warm Italian welcome and they'll be on hand to help you with anything you may need during your stay.
