About this listing
Secluded villa with stunning views on the Tiber Valley, only an hour from Rome. Ideal base for day trips to many places of historic and artistic interest in Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany. Private pool, only 10 mins walk to village, shops and restaurants
Verdealloggio is a beautiful, early nineteenth-century farmhouse overlooking the stunning Tevere valley.
Set in six hectares of grounds with views over the surrounding hills, Verdealloggio is, above all, a place to relax and unwind. Yet, it's only an eight-minute walk to Giove, with its ducal castle and charming medieval village.
The farmhouse has been converted into two double-bedroom apartments, each retaining the original architectural style and taste in furnishing. The apartments also have their own large outdoor area, with a portico and panoramic patio from which to enjoy the stunning scenery.
A swimming pool for the exclusive use of guests is metres away from the farmhouse (open June to September). Children can enjoy the pool or play in a large and safe private garden. There are also two mountain bikes, children’s swing and table tennis table for you to use. Nearby, are riding stables, if you wish to go horse-riding (10-15 minutes driving).
A short walk away is the village of Giove, with its historic centre and ducal castle. Here you’ll find plenty of shops, including a supermarket offering a wide variety of local produce. There’s also a pharmacy, bank, butchers, bakery, bars and a restaurant where we have a special arrangement for our guests.
The farmhouse sits in a strategic position between Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. From here you can explore historic cities, such as Rome and Florence, lakes (Bracciano and Trasimeno are both easily accessible) and national parks. The Rome-Florence highway and Giove train station are only 10 minutes away by car, while the sea coast is an hour and a half’s drive away.
