Welcome to authentic Umbrian country living. My home suits travelers who prefer authentic to glitzy. Rustic beauty, inside and out, antiques, tastefully decorated reflecting my Italian culture and extensive travel. This is a place to live, breath, relax, step back. Enjoy rural central Italy. 20 years my home, a place for seekers of character & charm, old world ancient Italy in a quiet natural setting; uncomplicated and welcoming. Excellent for walkers and mountain biking.

The space
Stay in Italy -like a local; this is a very unique home - homey and comfortable, welcoming. Tuscan/Umbrian country living, the old way; quiet surroundings, rolling hills, country walks, old stone houses, villages, good trattorias and wineries nearby, yes Umbria too has good wines and tasting rooms! The structure is an ancient stone colonica which was in part was a Roman tower and then a granary. Plain old fashioned healthy living the way it used to be - but comfortable!
WINTER STAYS: a minimum amount is included, beyond that, we must charge for HEATING, price varies for shorter or for longer stays. ENQUIRE. I generally spend 50 euro a week for heating, electricity and gas are not cheap in Italy or anywhere in Europe.
WHAT this home IS- and IS NOT: A very comfortable and welcoming place with great walks and mountain biking right from your front door.
My home is available while I am abroad working. Next months available : September, October, part of November, January, February, April ,May,June,July, August,September
Internet IS available.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For winter stays, arrangements must be agreed upon before you book; I heat with both wood and gas, you must know how to use a wood burning stove, or be prepared to pay for the gas heating which is higher in cost. Average, 8 €/day.The gas is metered, wood consumption will be calculated upon your departure.
DAMAGE/HEATING DEPOSIT REQUIRED
Please contact me to discuss all the possibilities.

Guest access
A Private apartment in a Colonica. My home has one bedroom, kitchen and living room, bath with 3/4 tub, washing machine, outdoor clothes line drying. I have one locked storage room that is not accessible to guests, The immediate area in front of the house is my garden; I have a stone wall enclosed patio with table. On the other side of the house is another apartment, this is quite a large building and the entrances are far from each other providing plenty of private space.
My neighbor is a chef and private dinners can be arranged, or a dinner with their family.

Other things to note
The woods and fields are full of life, chirping frogs and singing birds, the abundance of nature is all around you. I live as much outside as inside, if not more...all year long! I will occasionally accept a rental for a long weekend, write and ask. You can take long walks directly from the house - or mountain bike, trails going off in more than one direction; town is about an hour and a half walk.

During your stay
I am not present during your stay but you will be in touch with me at all times. A good friend is available for assistance and emergencies. You must be travelers who are self reliant and not fussy! I can arrange a lift from the airport in Perugia or train station in Umbertide and lifts to go shopping so that a rental car is not absolutely necessary. Our are is not well served by public transportation in the summer, spotty bus service - if any.

My neighbor is a chef and private dinners can be arranged, or a dinner with their family. Both husband and wife are excellent chefs!
