- SQM 80
Casa Porcospino is a holiday apartment with private garden, part of an old restored farmhouse in a tranquil position in nature.
The holiday rental apartment has terra cotta floors and thick wooden beams. The old farmhouse in the Upper Tiber Valley area, sits on 650 meters altitude, a guarantee for the best views over nature. This is the area where Umbria meets Tuscany and the Marche. This is the ideal rental for nature lovers and anybody looking for a quiet time, away from the fast pace, constant pressure and unnatural environment. The apartment is, with one bedroom, ideal for a couple, but there is a very good sofa bed so the apartment sleeps 4 people in total.
The old farmhouse is surrounded by 30.000 m2 of land with a small vineyard, olives and many fruit trees (that long to be picked!). No need to say that you can see far from here and what you see can keep you dreaming the whole of your holiday (and beyond). This apartment rental offers total privacy, being at the back of the house (looking over the house). There are 4 apartments in the old farmhouse, owned by two different owners, all non Italian. Two of the four apartments are rented for holidays (the other being ll Riccio). Each apartment has its own entrance and none of the owners live permanently on site (except when they are on holiday themselves).
The old farmhouse has a swimming pool (shared with all 4 apartments). The pool is 12 by 7 meters and is open from mid May to mid September. The farmhouse offers ample outside sitting areas and the apartment has a terrace with outdoor table where you can dine, plus the private garden.
The holiday rental apartment is around 80 m2 and has a big living room with good quality sofa bed (for 2), a spacious kitchen corner with a separate oven, 4 pit gas cooker, fridge with small built in freezer and everything you need to prepare a good meal. The living room has a CD player with some CDs. The furniture has been made by the local furniture producers, known worldwide for their excellent quality and craftsmanship.
The satellite TV has a Dutch decoder (but one can view international channels as well). Wifi internet is possible. The apartment can be heated when needed and there is a working fireplace in the living room. The bathroom has a washbasin, shower, toilet and bidet. The spacious bedroom has a double bed and a chest of drawers for your clothes and a normal cupboard to hang clothes. Furthermore there is an iron and ironing board, plus a hairdryer in the bathroom. There is a washing machine for common use.
Near the pool is a horse-fly trap.
Parking is below the farmhouse, but when needed you can drive up to the farm without any problems. There is a steep and narrow hill to drive up to the house. Since the autumn of 2012 this has been laid with concrete all the way, making the drive up much easier.
The centre of Citta di Castello is an easy 20 minutes drive from the farmhouse. On the road to the centre, on 15 minutes drive, you will find a big supermarket where you can do all your shopping. You can also go to Lama for shops, this is just over 10 minutes drive. Citta di Castello is an old city, offering a pleasant atmosphere. There are several museums both for old art as well as for modern art. In September the city organizes every year the International Festival of Chamber music. The holiday rental offers, apart from nature and quiet, good opportunities to visit the beautiful antique towns and cities scattered around Tuscany and Umbria. To mention a few: Monterchi, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Citerna, Sansepolcro, Perugia, Arezzo, Urbino and many more. You can play golf close to Lerchi (9 hole golf course) and here you can also ride a horse. The Dutch owners will have a folder with information about what to see and do, where to eat, market days and more in the apartment.
