Immerged in the beautiful and peaceful Umbrian countryside stay magnificently Le Macee, a beautiful farmhouse dated back from the late 17th century.
The house went through two restorations, the first done during the 70s and the second a few years ago by the current owners. The restorations were undertaken taking into account the uniqueness of the building and therefore a conservative architectural approach allowed the preservation of the original atmosphere of ancient terracotta floors and beamed ceilings typical of the traditional Umbrian countryside houses.
A sense of warmth and comfort was added by the modern facilities that the house got after those projects of restoration and refurbishment.
It lays on two floors. The ground floor is the “living” space. The first floor is the sleeping area as well as a TV area and family room (and an additional sitting room in front of a huge ancient fireplace).

From the lounge there is access to a big terrace boasting a breathtaking panorama overlooking the valley. A fully equipped laundry and a powder room are also on the ground floor.
