About this listing
Tuscan country living, the old way! Quiet surrondings. Rolling hills, country walks, old houses, villages, good trattorias.. An AUTHENTIC old stone structure, which was originally a Grainery. Plain old fashioned healthy living the way it was.
This is a large and spacious AUTHENTIC Tuscan country house, it is part of a very big "colonica" in a lovely quiet spot on the hillside - woods behind fields below. Garden and lawn space, private entrance. This has not been modified for tourists. There is no dishwasher, it is like living in the 50s.. There IS hot water! Actually this is really a lovely place for people who like simplicity and country living, really. Use this as your base for touring or just hang out and write books, read, paint, be in nature, walk. relax, and you don't have to spend a bundle to do it.
2 double bedroom, 1 single, a great place for touring Tuscany and Umbria, good for singles couples or families. Live simple, save and really BE in Italy. Village 7k, shopping in Meracatale di Cortona or Umbertide. Towns of Assizi, Gubbio, Deruta, Cortona, Perugia, within an hour's drive. Florence, 1.5 hours. Come and live "la dolce vita!" Eat well, breath clean air, take in beautiful summer days and lovely sunsets, quiet nights. Great area for mountain biking and hiking right from your front door following the well mapped CAI trails.
The large and spacious apartment and adjacent outdoor area.
Interaction with Guests
The farmhouse belongs to the ancient Sorbello Estate, the Marchesa lives at the castle across the valley. Occasionally she stops by to chat with guests, on request, you can visit the Sorbello Estate castle.
Great rural setting, the other houses are a half chilometer away
Unfortunately the area is not served well by bus. Trains link to the Trenitalia on the Umbria line, station in Umbertide. Rides can be arranged to and from Umbertide.
