About This Listing
Panoramic apartment on the first floor of a typical early nineteenth century farmhouse overlooking the stunning Tevere valley.
The apartment consist of one double bedroom, one tween beedroom, bathroom and a large living/dining room with an open plan kitchen. Although the apartment is on the first floor it has a direct access to the panoramic private patio with an outdoor eating area.
The farmhouse has been converted into two double bedrooms apartments for four people each, and they retain the original architectural style and taste in furnishing. Each apartment has its own large outdoor area with a portico and a panoramic patio.
Set in six hectares of grounds with views over surrounding hills, the farmhouse is, above all, a place to relax and unwind. Yet, it's only 8 minutes walk to the small town Giove with its Castle and charming Medieval village.
The private and panoramic swimming pool is only meters from the property and it's for the exclusive use of our guests. Children can enjoy the pool and play in the large private garden surrounding the farmhouse.
The swimming poos is 4 meters wide, 11 meters long and 1.30 deep.
Two mountain-bikes, a children swing and a table tennis table are are also available for our guests.
Nearby, there are two riding-stables if guests wish to go horse riding.
Located 800 metres from the village of Giove with its historic centre and imposing ducal castle, Verdealloggio is an ideal base to visit the many places of historic and artistic interest in Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany.
In Giove there are food shops including a supermarket that offer a wide variety of local products. There is also a Pharmacy, Bank, butchers, bakery, bars as well as a restaurant with which Verdealloggio has a special arrangement for serving meals to its holiday guests.
The holiday house is located in a strategic position between Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany giving a wide choice of different itineraries, from history cities (Rome, Florence etc), lakes (Bracciano, Trasimeno etc), natural protected areas, and the sea coast which is only an hour and half away. Rome-Florence highway and train station are only 10 minutes away by car.
posto tranquillo in campagna come descritto, piacevole l'incontro con i proprietari che sono sul posto per qualsiasi necessità. Buona la posizione non distante dall'autostrada
We had the most incredible time in Giove! Michele was so helpful before our stay, answering all of our many questions, and his parents Ornella and Marco were such wonderful hosts. Marco showed us around his art studio (he is an incredible painter) and Ornella baked us the most delicious cake! They were both friendly and helpful, but also they left us privacy and space to relax. We have to also mention the cats, who we were very sad to say goodbye to! We were 4 girls looking for a relaxing escape from London and we were so pleased we chose to stay here. We decided on the upper apartment which had the most incredible views of the area and was just a stones throw from the swimming pool. The views were incredible, the local town was beautiful and we can't recommend the place enough for a relaxing, Italian stay in the country.
We were delighted to stay with Ornella and Marco during the summer. They were the kindest an most helpful of hosts, also giving us advice un places to go in the area - and we had a great time there. The house is very well situated with a nice view of the surrounding area - and with an easy drive to some of the many sights in the area, eg. Orvieto, Assisi, Marmore falls and Amelia.
We arrived during the annual "Il Sole e La Luna" festival and had a great experience of the city Giove during those days.
The villa is a classical old house that has been nicely modernized with a fine kitchen and bath room. And the kids of course loved the pool...
We can only recommend Ornella and Marco's place and would love to come back.
