Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Sansepolcro - Dulce Domum
Lovingly restored 2 bedroom town house in historic centre, sleeps 4
This lovely 'cielo-terra' (heaven-to-earth) house is the ideal base for a holiday in the green and culturally rich heart of Italy. You can enjoy the slow pace of life in this stunning Tuscan town, explore its artistic heritage (the birthplace of the painter Piero della Francesca) or venture further afield by car, train, bike or foot to discover the natural, architectural, cultural and gastronomic delights of the area. The house is in Sansepolcro's historic centre, a stone's throw from the main square. It has recently been lovingly redecorated, retaining original wooden beams, and is tastefully and comfortably furnished, with natural fibre carpet throughout. The three-floor layout is typical of local old-town houses. The ground floor comprises a large garage/utility space. The living room (boasting a large, functioning stone fireplace), dining room and kitchen are on the open-plan first floor, while the two bedrooms (one double, one twin) and the bathroom are on the second floor.
Activities beyond Sansepolcro: Sansepolcro is 15km from Citta di Castello, the other key walled town of the Upper Tiber Valley.
There are many nearby 'borgos', villages, towns, monasteries and sanctuaries that are worth a visit, while, on a 360 degree radius, many key central Italian cities and sites are easy day trips, including Florence (1.5 hours by car), Perugia (45 mins), Arezzo (40 mins), Assisi and Spello (1 hour), Spoleto (1.5 hours), Urbino (1 hour 15 mins), Gubbio (1 hour). Rome takes a little under 3 hours by car
In addition to sightseeing in Sansepolcro and beyond, the town's verdant position in the Tiber River valley just below the Appenine mountains makes it a popular base for all kinds of outdoor activity holidays, such as walking, hiking, cycling, mountain-biking, canoeing and fishing (both activities possible in/on the Tiber or the picturesque man-made Montedoglio Lake) and horse-riding.
