Please follow the last part of our directions to get to the villa.
Take the E45 from Cesena – Roma.
Exit at Promano (from the North this is just South of Citta di Castello; coming from the South this is just north of Umbertide and Montone).
Follow in direction of Trestina.
At the roundabout just after the bridge over the Tiber river, follow direction Morra (to the right).
After about 4 km you get to 'Bivio Lugnano'. From here it is 0,7 km to the small countrylane on the left leading up to the house.From the provincial road to the house is 1.6 kms.
The small lane is just before Badia di Petroia. If you get to Badia di Petroia (very small with on your left a bar and small supermarket) you'll have to turn around and drive back and take the first road to the right.
Going into the lane you will almost immediately pass a small bridge and the small road is lined with trees here. At the end of the lane, the road curves to the left (do NOT go to the right here). Keep driving up, along an old restored house until a T-crossing. Go to the right. Here the asphalt will stop and you will get onto a gravel road in good condition. Follow this for about 500 mtrs. On your left you will see the entrance to another estate which is called "Casucci". A bit higher up on the right you will see a small wooden sign "A' Ca di Rospi". If you miss this sign you'll drive around a couple of houses and will get to the gate of your holiday rental anyway. There is no other road here.
