In the second half of the 20th century, what is now the main building of Vacanze Ideali was used as the house from the Balestro family At the beginning there was no farmhouse here, but a house and brothers, who had chosen this land to build their future.
Se riavvolgiamo infatti il nastro fino alla seconda metà del ‘900, le immagini ci mostrano un edificio in pietra e i suoi annessi agricoli. this area today includes the accommodations of “Il Padrone” and “Il contadino“ (Anselmo, Umberto and Pietro‘s house). To preserve the memory of our place, the apartments that were built up then, on the ground floor, were namely “La Cantina”, “Il Fienile” and “La Stalla”, to keep the name of the original purpose.
Therenovation, which led to the opening of our structure in 1992, was conceived to maintain the characteristics of the historical buildings, with thick walls and facades of stone, roofs in ancient cups and tiles. Internally some accommodations have high ceilings, while others have wooden beam edits and flats, others have been made with steel faces and bricks. The floors are all made all in terracotta.
After 3 years, in 1995, the first swimming pool (m 6.00 x 12.00) was built in with a solarium and then some common services underground.
In 1999 Tenuta Badia ’99 srl was founded, a farm dedicated to the cultivation of cereals, the production of wine, oil and other garden products. The new company also carries out the recovery of the old annexed structures of the farm, which today complete the accommodation offer.
Il primo progetto è “La Capanna”, tipica struttura contadina presente nell’aia per lo stoccaggio della “pula”, della paglia e del fieno. Grazie all’uso di materiali originari, come vecchi mattoni, pietre del basamento o ancora travi di legno, mantiene viva “la memoria” ed il disegno originario.
Nello stesso periodo prende forma la seconda piscina, a forma di fagiolo (m. 5,50 x 11,00).
In 2002 the “stalletti” were born with the reconstruction from scratch of the pigsty and the stables. ace/view bricks and classic roof tiles, with wooden beam ceilings and flats, typify then the building. The accommodations are “ L’Etrusco”, “Il Perugino” and “Ex Pacciano“.
Consequently, in 2005 the project ended with the recovery of company’s outbuildings. From the remittance of agricultural machinery and warehouses, we create three accommodations, one double room and a spare room close to the swimming pools.
he names of the accommodations enhance the view of Lake Trasimeno in the background with its islands and recall the names of mythology (Agilla and Trasimeno).
Today the structure is in full swing with the complete recovery of all the buildings and the entire external courtyard.
It has 12 apartments and a double room, all with private gardens / spaces, in addition to common play areas, 2 swimming pools, a grass soccer field, a common room and a tavern for convivial meetings and indoor tastings.
