About the property

Country house in the Valnerina, near Spoleto, Umbria

2 bedroom house (sleeps 4/5) with its own swimming pool.

Recently restored to a high standard, the detached stone-built house features chestnut beams and traditional cotta floors. The many windows and glass doors - the majority of which face south and west - afford lots of natural light.

Situated in the hilltop hamlet of Borgiano, the house is surrounded by beautiful wooded slopes, olive groves, sweet chestnut woods and farmland.

The area offers fantastic walking routes, particularly via the disused railway line from Spoleto to Norcia, from where you have glorious views over the hills of the Valnerina National Park.

This is an ideal home for those who wish to immerse themselves in the green of the Umbrian countryside but prefer not to be too remote.

Rural retreat in beautifully restored house with pool

  • 5 of 5

I have no hesitation in recommending this property. It won't be for everyone - it's a far cry from the Italian coastal fervour but if you are after somewhere to relax and still be within reach of some wonderful cultural sights this is for you.

The house itself is in really good condition having been restored to a very high standard - it felt more like staying in a friends house than a rental. Beautiful beams and terracotta tile floors throughout and comfortable bedrooms and well equipped kitchen.

The pool is great - plenty large enough and lovely and fresh - so you can really cool down after taking in some sun or after a good long walk.

The house is in a tiny hamlet surrounded by forests - but within 15 mins you can be in Spoleto which had so much to see - it's actually extraordinary just how much there is to see being such a small hill town. There are many other towns within an easy drive if you want to explore further.

The surrounding hills are wonderful - really wild and very thinly populated - get a hiking map from the tourist office. You can get very high, with wonderful panoramas and see some truly awesome sunsets!

For our family this was an idea location - relaxing - nice to just read by the pool but also easy to access some culture - local festa's, great restaurants, art galleries etc.

We were there in the summer - but I think this would be a great place to stay any time of year.

Lovely peaceful property

  • 4 of 5

Perched up in the hills above Spoleto this property is very peaceful and you can really get away from everything. The house has been restored to a lovely standard and the 2 bedrooms with seperate bathrooms are great if you a away with friends. Pool was nice although very cold! Takes about 15 minutes to get to the nearest town you definitely need a car, but great spot for visiting the surrounding hill towns.

Mary was a pleasure to deal with, with a speedy response to all of my emails and questions.

Lovely pool and bedrooms - ideal sightseeing base

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Casa Borgiano, much of it lazing by or in the pool. Bedrooms were also excellent - the house has been very tastefully restored. The location is also excellent for exploring so many of Umbria's most breathtakingly beautiful towns, including Spoleto, Assisi, Montefalco, Bevagna, Trevi and Todi. Mary the owner was also a delight to deal with.

Séjour en pleine nature

  • 3 of 5

Belle maison ancienne, au calme, équipé correctement. Piscine privative en contre bas de la maison sur un terrain indépendant. Cette propriété comme les autres maisons de ce hameau, ne possède pas de terrain ni de jardin ! Le hameau est constitué d'une dizaine de maisons, sur un pic qui sont très proches des unes des autres…Ambiance Italienne garantie!!

Région très sympathique de la Toscane très différentes de Pise, Sienne et Florence!
