Description from manager

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Originally an old farmhouse with adjoining pigsty, I Piantoni is now a lovely country house which has preserved, in its simplicity, a welcoming, homely atmosphere. The exterior is clad in exposed stone while the hospitable interior has terracotta floors, exposed-beam ceilings, rustic functional fireplaces and furnishings. Part of a farm estate that produces extra virgin olive oil, the house stands in a discreet and tranquil setting of unspoiled nature and is surrounded by a beautiful garden, the pride of the property, with its green areas and rich vegetation made up of strawberry trees, broom, wisteria and herbs. Its fortunate hillside setting offers a wonderful view, especially from the pool, stretching along the lush Tiber Valley, dotted with olive trees and covered with dense woodland. I Piantoni, which in Umbria represent the olive trees, is about two kilometres from the centre of Penna in Teverina, a tiny village set in the southern Umbrian countryside, in an area rich in artistic and natural attractions: just a few kilometres away are the beautiful little towns of Lugnano in Teverina, Amelia, Narni, Orvieto and Viterbo, the wonderful Marmore Waterfalls and the famous archaeological site of Carsulae. About 14 km from the motorway exit of Orte, Rome in less than an hour away.

Additional amenities: 2 mountain bikes, American coffee machine, baby cot, fans in the bedrooms, hair-dryer, iron and ironing board, moka coffee machine, mosquito screens in the bedrooms, table football, wood oven

About the area

The house is located in the comune of Penna in Teverina, an early medieval settlement located atop a hill overlooking the valley of the Tiber in southern Umbria and just a few kilometres from the border with Lazio. A visit to the village (reference point for the bank, food and other shops), before moving on to the many attractions in the area, will be definitely worthwhile. In its medieval-plan town centre are preserved intact valuable 15th century, Renaissance-style inserts. The main square in the centre of the borgo is bounded by the 16th century Palazzo del Governatore and by the Church of Santa Maria della Neve, originally a small country church around which the residential area later developed. Noteworthy is the Palazzo Orsini, an impressive historic building which belonged to the old Orsini family, dating back to the 14th century, and which maintains a 16th century garden, characterized by its particular entry gate with the so-called "Four Seasons", allegorical columns in 17th century travertine. Not to be missed is a visit to the permanent Nativity scene, a unique artistic/tenchnological installation developed by local artisans with moving statues in which scenes of everyday life are represented in animated contexts. A few kilometres from Penna you can visit some important urban showpieces, amongst which should be mentioned: the splendid borgo of Lugnano with its enchanting square and the collegiate church of Santa Maria, the little town of Amelia with its historic centre guarded by imposing polygonal walls and its many churches and historical monuments, Narni with its splendid buildings and the secrets of its underground where Etruscan remains and labyrinthine paths are preserved, and then Orte, Orvieto, Spoleto, the papal city of Viterbo and many other natural and archaeological gems of which the region is rich (such as the Marmore Waterfalls, the highest in Europe, located in the protected area of the Nera River Park, and the important archaeological site of the Roman city of Carsulae, near San Gemini). The property is easily reached from the Autostrada del Sole, the nearest exits being those of Attigliano (12 km) and Orte (14 km). From Orte (where the nearest railway station is located) Rome can be reached very quickly.
