Beautiful country house in stone which has recently been restored, in a very peaceful and quiet location with scenic views, ca. 20 minutes from Cortona and Lake Trasimeno.
The property offers a wonderful pool (10x4 meters) and a big garden. Maximum privacy.
The house itself has been transformed into a welcoming and comfortable country residence, maintaining the typical features of an Italian farm house such as stone and brick walls, terracotta floors and beamed ceilings.
From both the house and the garden you can enjoy wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and the valley below. The house is set up on different levels, but both from the living area as well as from the bedrooms you can directly access the garden. The bathrooms have recently been renovated.
The access to the house is through a partly unpaved, in sections steep, gravel road (ca. 1 km) not suitable for very low-slung vehicles or sports cars. Normal cars can reach the house without any problems.
From our Guestbook:
"We encountered our 'room with a view': what a place, what a view, a feast for your eyes! We got a unique window on Tuscany and Umbria, and although we visited this part of Italy several times, we never stayed in such a house embedded in nature. Breakfast and dinner on the terrace provided a startling vision on the woods and neighbourhood. One day we woke up at six in the morning: sun peering over the hills, squirrels nibbling on nuts, an owl howling: what a start of the day! This week was quite hot: the spotless blue pool, trees and umbrellas were 'safe places' which we and our kids enjoyed. Tuscany and Umbria are fascinating: we followed some of the footsteps of Franciscus. Little and unknown places tasted the best, as well as our self-baked pizza's."
"Thanks for having us in your great home! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the garden, the pool and the house. The views over the valley, hills and woods are spectacular! We didn't even go out to dinner, but stayed and cooked ourselves. Nice dinner in the kitchen or on the terrace... We hope to visit your wonderful house once more in the future! I can recommend it to anyone! Grazie mille!"
"A piece of paradise in Tuscany! When arriving at the house, we knew it would be difficult to leave it... and it is! We had a wonderful week with the perfect weather. The beautiful view, the well-decorated home, the swimming pool! We were happy to visit again Siena and to discover the beautiful towns of Pienza and Montepulciano. Our 5-year old son will certainly remember his hundreds of jumps into the pool and that he lost his first two teeth here! He will also miss the reading corner upstairs where he loved to go and stay a while every day. Many thanks for the beautiful holidays you enabled us to spend here & we also hope to come back one day!"
"Thanks for a delightful stay in a most wonderful setting. The air was clean and the vistas incredible to see. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and hope to come back again some day. Your home is beautiful."
"Thanks a lot for a wonderful week! So full of silence and the rest we needed. Especially the evenings, looking over the valley, the lights of the houses, a dog barking, we will miss these!"
