Our home

Our 17th century stone house, lying on a hill-side, has been newly restored in respect of the ancient architectural characteristics and materials. The apartment is on the ground level of the house, and consists of a double bedroom, a living room with double sofa-bed, dining room, kitchen (with oven, fridge and washing-machine), and bathroom with shower. Sleeps a maximum of 4 people. The rooms, which in ancient times were animal stables, have been beautifully restaured preserving many original details, such as the old manger in the bedroom. The furniture is comfortable with old peasant pieces and some antique pieces. A wide stone terrace (furnished with tables, chairs, deck-chairs and sun-umbrella) offers a wide view, facing directly the surrounding hills, and represents the ideal setting for sun-bathing, eating, or just relaxing! Recently a 4x6 meter pool has been added, in a beautiful corner overlooking the green surroundings. The access to the house is through a 900-meter driving lane among the woods. There is a parking area. Self-catering, linens and towels provided. English-speaking owners.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The countryhouse is located strategically near the border between Tuscany and Umbria, in the heart of the Italian countryside between Cortona (19 Km), Città di Castello (25 Km), and the Trasimeno lake (33 Km). The house is amidst peaceful hills in a 15-hectares private property, consisting of oak woods, olive trees and meadows, run through by walking trails. Peace and quiet are guaranteed; but at the same time beautiful art cities, such as Cortona or Città di Castello are only a half-an-hour drive away; Perugia, Gubbio, Arezzo and Sansepolcro (the birthplace of Piero della Francesca) about forty-five minutes away. The nearest village is at 4 Km, and offers two drugstores, a pizzeria, a public swimming-pool and a post office; a horse-riding facility is at 6 Km, and various fine restaurants, shops and supermarkets at 10 Km.
