PROPERTY Description

The house was originally a mill house with adjoining tobacco drying tower and features exposed beams and barrel vaulted ceilings. The kitchen is designed for modern convenience rather than purely rustic charm, the dining area has a lovely open fireplace and the whole has a comfortable home from home appeal. The shaded wisteria covered terrace and thick stone walls keep the interior cool in summer. The nearest village, about 3kms away, has a restaurant, a couple of bars & some small shops. There are plenty of good restaurants in the surrounding area and a big supermarket can be found 20 mins away by car. Cortona is the nearest hilltop gem, 18 kms over the hills, while Citta di Castello & Perugia are easy drives. Gubbio, Assissi, Arrezzo and Lake Trasimeno are all within easy reach. Tour as you wish and then relax by the pool in the quiet Tuscan countryside! Perfect... Fly to Perugia, Bologna, Florence, Pisa or Rome. Directions supplied. Changeovers are on Saturdays. Beach towels are not provided but linen and towels for the house are changed every week. The pool man/caretaker and cleaning lady come every Saturday to prepare the house. A booklet is left in the house with general points about the house, area & restaurants. There is no mobile phone reception at the house due to the surrounding hills and lack of good booster masts in the area but reception is fine in San Leo Bastia where calls can also be made from a phone booth at one village bar & free wifi at the other bar/pizzeria. The large principal bedroom at top of the house has a double bed & view across valley, access via spiral staircase. Bedroom two on the middle floor has a single bed with dual views. A lovely large room with 2 double sofa beds can provide more accommodation. The kitchen electric oven is built in at a convenient height, plenty of cupboard space, light coloured marble worktop with sink & 4 ring gas hob, a stand alone fridge with freezer compartment, extendable wooden table with chairs & wonderful fireplace. The rooms have terra cotta tiled floors, white washed walls with some exposed stone detail. Lovely old roof beams support the tiled roofs. The private pool measures 8 x 5 metres and 3 metres deep and is situated on a slightly higher level than the house giving a panoramic view across & along the wooded valley. There is a gentle current coming on from time to time in the pool to aid filtration and so you can swim against it and effectively go for as long as you like without having to do lengths!
