THE VILLA

An 18th century villa recently restored to a high standard yet keeping all the original features – mixing faded red brick with original stone externally; beautiful beamed ceilings, terra cotta floors & travertine marble bathrooms internally. Sunny, bright, airy & spacious, the interiors are finished perfectly with an eye to comfort & designed with Italian influence.

A large sitting room with doors to the garden leads through to equally large kitchen which is fully fitted – dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, cooker and larder together with a large pine table (seating 8/10) & chairs with pine dresser and side board – 3 doors open onto the brick covered terrace, perfect for al fresco dining with a large garden table & chairs, together with a barbeque.

One double bedroom en suite on the ground floor & 3 bedrooms & marble bathrooms upstairs, one with its own private balcony. All the bedrooms are distinct and individually beautifully decorated. Outside a there is a 12 x 6 metre pool with a D end and steps to the shallow end. The gardens and pool are lit at night. The farmhouse is surrounded by its own fenced garden and gates, ideal grounds for family games (which are supplied). A perfect spot to relax with the local wines & olives as the sun sets over the mountains.

Situated down a quiet track, close to the village and its amenities, the property lies only 10 minutes from the beautiful, ancient, walled town of Castiglione. Close to the Tuscan border, easy driving distance to many beautiful towns such as Assisi, Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena, Perugia, Spoleto, Gubbio and an easy train journey to Florence & Rome.

This is a beautifully quiet family home. Outside the gates you can go for a run, walk down the quiet country tracks through vineyards & olive groves or simply sit by the pool and relax. Get away from it all. No one will disturb you.

Wonderfully situated on the borders of Umbria & Tuscany, the views from the house are stunning, looking out over Castiglione del Lago & beyond to Cortona. On leaving the property you may visit many well known cities such as Siena (70kms), Assisi (60kms) and, closer to home, beautiful towns such as Cortona, Montepulciano & Pienza (home of Percorino cheeses). Situated in the heart of vineyards and olive groves both famous for the quality of their produce and local farms producing excellent cheeses. End the day on the terrace watching the sun slip behind the mountains while enjoying the local wines, olives and wonderfully fresh products while you decide whether to dine in or sample the vast choice of good restaurants nearby.
