Description from manager

Arriving at the summit of this beautiful, private 280 acre estate, gives the impression of reaching the point closest to the sky in Umbria. Six stone farmhouses can be found in this beautiful countryside setting, immersed between fields and woods. Set in different areas on the estate, each one of these houses enjoys a breathtaking view. The charming owners, an English speaking couple, live in the one set at the highest point and are always available to assist guests during their stay.

Cataccio is a very comfortable family house few hundred metres away from the neighbouring farmhouse. Restored to high standards, this house has the added attraction of having a four bedded room, perfect for families with children as this room is designed with them in mind.

Here the 12 x 6 mts swimming pool, with its separate paddling pool, is situated about 50 mts from the house up a short walk, which further enhances the dramatic and stunning scenery, and is surrounded by olive groves and trees.

The villa is in an excellent position for driving to lots of the most beautiful parts of Umbria and parts of Tuscany such as Siena and Cortona. Gubbio, Perugia and Lake Trasimeno are the closest one and also on the typical tourist route, but the small, delightful villages such as Montone, are worth to be visited as well.

Siena is just 1 hour 20 minutes drive and to reach Cortona, just 35 minutes drive, one crosses the border of Umbria and Tuscany along a road which runs through the beautiful countryside, passing village after village where it is always a pleasure to stop in one of the many typical ‘trattorias’.
