Description of the Umbertide vacation cottage rental
Borgo Bastia Creti is an hamlet which dates back to 1433, perfectly located between Umbria and Tuscany (Cortona 25km) and situated on the top of a hill with a spectacular 360 degree view of rolling countryside overlooking the historic Niccone Valley, North of Perugia (the capital of Umbria).

Guests can be accommodated in the three incredibly spacious, bright apartments which comprise the heart of Borgo Bastia Creti and in the two small detached stone houses at the bottom of this hamlet – sleeping up to a maximum of 26 guests.

The wide range of accommodation includes large living areas with open fireplaces and floors laid with handmade terracotta tiles. All the apartments are elegantly furnished with antique and there is satellite television. The extremely comfortable bedrooms all have en suite facilities and air conditioning.

The kitchens are all fully equipped (i.e. dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and convection oven) and enjoy wonderful views from every window. An easy to use alarm system has been installed in every apartment.

For a relaxed, but exclusive holiday the property of Bastia Creti is completed by a beautiful pool (16x8mt) with superb views over the valley, the old hamlet’s chapel, converted into a warm space for delicious buffet breakfasts and dinners by reservation, a tennis court, a sauna and private grounds with many shady corners to sit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

A free wi-fi internet connection is available throughout the hamlet.

The various individual accommodation options, the services and the helpful but discreet Bastia Creti staff make this an exceptional and unique place for an independent family or couple’s holiday as well as for special events such as marriages, family reunions, or business meetings in a secluded, exclusive and enthralling location.
Area Information
The Niccone Valley is named for the stream that flows through it, spilling into the Tiber River at its eastern terminus near Umbertide. Part of the valley is in Umbria and part is in Tuscany; at either end are the Umbrian towns of Lisciano Niccone and plain Niccone, and a small section from Mercatale to La Mita is in Tuscany.

The valley was a much traveled route throughout Italy's history, and evidence of its strategic position can be seen in the castles on the hilltops, facing off from both sides across the border.

It is the northernmost Umbrian territory, a border zone between Umbria and Tuscany repeatedly crossed by cultural and artistic influences that have determined its particular development in comparison to the neighbouring realities and Umbria in generally.

The entire district teems with splendid works of art and a happy balance has been achieved between ancient and modern, tradition and progress.

Citerna, Montone, Pietralunga and Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, all deeply imbued with ancient civilization, combine the panoramic beauty of their position with sober medieval town planning. In Umbertide, S.Giustino and Lisciano Niccone, the many castles, parish churches, and abbeys bear witness to a past history of intense social changes and artistic and religious lifestyles. Città di Castello is a rare Umbrian example of Renaissance art and culture which harmonises perfectly with the events of national importance organised through the year.

The area is also considered a great gastronomic point, with loads of specialities that can be tasted in the typical restaurants and trattorias of the Umbria region.

Staying in Borgo Bastia Creti will give you the possibility to visit Tuscany as well, bordering with Tuscany and its beautiful towns such as Cortona (25 km) Montepulciano (55 km), Siena (95km), Arezzo (57km) or Sansepolcro (40km).
