About Anna Baldazzi

Italian journalist/photographer/filmmaker, lives in Rome.

Canadian painter lives in N. old friends from way back.

Some years ago, by chance, we found the opportunity of buying a a property that had just been built and that we could share. We put a lot of thought into re-designing the interior of the house to make it spacious and comfortable and that it could allow personal privacy. The ceilings are high and altogether there is the feeling of a loft in the cottage. It is a wonderful place to escape to, the local farmers have become friends and provide fresh eggs and vegetables. We also like the idea of making our own olive oil once a year.

Why Anna Baldazzi chose Montecchio

It is set in a lovely and sunny valley.It is pure landscape

untouched by any building or electricity poles.It is on the edge of a Archeological site Umbro-Etruscan.Only fields of olive trees, sunflowers,etc. Great sense of privacy

What makes this cottage unique

It is two minutes to the village Montecchio by car and 20 minutes by foot.25 minutes d rive to Orvieto and 25 notes drive to Todi.

One hour and a half to Rome by car a couple of hours to Florence and 45 minutes to Perugia. and Assisi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Real Estate Agent, London - It is not easy to find a 200sq. mt house articulated in such a way as to allow many spaces of privacy and with such a large swimming pool.

Mrs.Sara Bury- Dorset England

We stayed in this delightful house for our honeymoon.It was just as I had hoped, only better. The house is very stylish equipped

with everything you could need. A dreamspot.

Me.Ken Joss - London

The veranda was truly one of the biggest we have seen and the pictures do not do it a justice.

Mrs.Aileen Allsop- England

We spent a week in July at this cottage. The setting is delightful and cannot be beaten for peace and tranquility. We much

appreciated access to the books and videos for the evenings we stayed in.
