Val Di Marco Pianello, Umbria, Italy
Umbria is fondly referred to as being 'the green heart of Italy' and it is easy to see why at Val di Marco. Spectacular views of the Appenine Mountains that stretch between Umbria and Le Marche can be enjoyed from the villa. A sweep of verdant hills dotted with ancient towers, abbeys and fortified hill villages intermingle with the mysticism of St. Francis that permeates this region. A network of Franciscan trails pass through the area and the Val di Marco property boasts the trail that historically went from Assisi to Gubbio, two of the best preserved medieval villages in central Italy.
The estate encompasses 60 acres of woods, pastures and olive groves and offers excellent opportunities for simple walks, hiking and mountain biking. The locally produced organic olive oil is available for purchase.
Val di Marco¡¯s location near Valfabbrica in the hills behind Assisi makes it a perfect holiday home for large groups and family reunions. It provides a great sense of peace and privacy while also being in good striking distance to the sights to be seen in this part of Umbria ¨C Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Umbertide, Todi and many others. The closest town is Pianello at 6 km and there is an excellent restaurant located less than 2 km from the villa.
Val di Marco is a large ¡°casa colonica¡±, the characteristic stone Umbrian farmhouse typical to this region. Dating back to the 1700s and very recently restored, the house is very welcoming to groups of family and friends and can accommodate a maximum of 20 people. Furthermore, its creative floor plan is unique so that smaller groups of 8 ¨C 10 can also be accommodated for reduced pricing thus making Val di Marco an ideal dwelling for large and small groups.
