Our home

Our 17th-century stone house in Tuscany offers a self-catering accomodation for a maximum of 4 people. Lying on a hill-side, it has been newly restored in respect of the ancient architectural characteristics and materials. The guest apartment is on the ground level of the house, and features: a king-size bedroom, a living room with a twin sofa-bed, dining room, kitchen (with oven, fridge and washing-machine), and bathroom with shower. 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 and oriental 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! Linens and towels are provided, as well as cookingware. Smoking allowed only outside the house. Independent central heating. The access to the house is through a 900-meter driving lane among the woods. There is a parking area. 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 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 and Città di Castello are only a half-an-hour drive away; Perugia, Gubbio, Arezzo and Sansepolcro (birthplace of Piero della Francesca) about forty-five minutes away. The nearest village is at 4 Km, and offers a drugstore, a pizzeria, two restaurants, two bars, a swimming-pool and a post office; a horse-riding facility is at 6 Km, and various restaurants, shops and supermarkets at 10 Km.
