- SQM 250
Il Camino is an old farmhouse in Umbria, between Lake Trasimeno and Umbertide. Nowadays it is a holiday rental ideal for larger groups with excellent views over the valley and a large private pool. In spring and summer there is a special price for smaller groups.
Nicely nestled in the hills above Lisciano Niccone, the farmhouse is in a quiet spot, yet not far from shops and restaurants. Originally it had 3 apartments. Now these are connected via an internal staircase. An ideal home especially for families with children traveling together, sleeping up to 14 guests (6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and extra bathroom ground floor). There is a big pool with nice sun terrace overlooking the hills.
The pool (7 by 14 meters and between 1.20 and 1.40 m deep) is well situated, just below the farm with a long stone staircase leading to it. There is pool furniture around it on the spacious terrace. The garden furthermore has a table tennis table and a large gazebo in front of the house, making it really ideal for outside dining or relaxing with a book in the shade. The garden has a well kept lawn and one can park the cars in a covered car park.
On the grounds another little house was built (the custodians house). This always remains closed (the owners keep sheets and other items in here). The closest villages are Lisciano Niccone (1.5 km) and Mercatale di Cortona (attached to Lisciano Niccone) where you can find several shops and restaurants.
The farmhouse has been completely restored and refurbished in 1991 and it has been constantly upgraded since then. The owners have kept all restoration works as closely as possible to Umbrian architectural traditions, meaning they have used real wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The ground floor used to be the stables, as was the case in all ancient Umbrian farms. The top floor used to be the living area of the farming family.
The farm now has an apartment on the ground floor and two apartments on the first floor. The three apartments are all united internally via a staircase leading up from the dining area downstairs, but the rooms upstairs also have direct access to the garden. The farm is built against a hill, making the first floor also ''ground floor'', with nice terraces around to sit outside and enjoy the Umbrian countryside.
Each apartment has two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. The top floor also has a living area with an extra very small kitchen. The ground floor apartment as well as one of the first floor apartments has a double and a triple bedroom. The other first floor apartment has a double and a twin bedroom.
The ground floor apartment has a separate kitchen with dishwasher, big fridge / freezer, 5 pit cooking top, oven and large pots and pans so one can cook for a bigger group. There is a separate dining area and a small studio with extra service toilet. There is a big barbecue on the left side of the ground floor terrace.
Each bathroom has a hairdryer. There is Wifi internet and there is a washing machine. The house does not have a living room with sofa's, nor is there a television.
