Photos and Description of this 8 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Monterchi - Casa Rughino
2 spacious connectable apartments 1 studio apt, sleep 15/18, panoramic garden
In the charming hamlet of Montemiliano Casa Rughino is a stone country house surrounded by scented lavenders, roses, brooms and rosemary. From its terraces overlooking Monterchi, home of Piero della Francesca fresco “Madonna del Parto”, you can enjoy incomparable landscapes on the quiet Tuscan countryside where wheat and sunflower fields alternate vineyards and olive groves. The recent restoration has added comfort and neatness to the original Tuscan flavour, completely meeting with ecological building criteria. We can offer accommodation for up to 15/18 people in 2 spacious apartments and 1 double room, all with their own terrace and independent access but connectible inside (in the Manor), while on the other side of the garden the old haybarn has been transformed in a charming studio apartment. For a perfect stay at Casa Rughino we have realized a swimming pool with a stunning view on surrounding hills, large solarium and shaded terrace. And for dinner BBQ under the pergola.
