Il Rospo holiday home in the North of Umbria is one of these houses that has this good feeling of love at first sight. An old farmhouse lovingly restored in a beautiful setting overlooking the rolling green hills all around. The place to be for a relaxing holiday in Umbria.
Arriving at Il Rospo holiday home, one is overwhelmed by the views and the space around. The pool with behind it the old farmhouse is very inviting. The house is about 1.5 kms from the small hamlet of Badia di Petroia which is along the provincial road connecting Città di Castello in Umbria with Castiglion Fiorentino in Tuscany, respectively 15 and 18 kms away.
Il Rospo has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room with open fire place and an open plan kitchen. All restored leaving the old wooden beams and stone walls in tact.
The pool is 12 by 6 mtrs and from 1.40 to 2.40 mtrs deep. There are roman steps to one side leading into the water. From here one enjoys full privacy and excellent views around.
One enters the house via the external stone staircase leading into the living room on the first floor, with an open fire place, a sofa, two chairs and a television that has only Italian channels. An open plan kitchen is to the right of this area. Here is a long dining table and plenty of space to prepare lunch or dinner. The kitchen has a gas stove, an electrical oven, a dishwasher, a small fridge.
From the living room an antique wooden staircase is leading up to the top floor. These stairs are the original stairs and are very steep and uneven. Upstairs there is a bathroom with shower, a bedroom with two single beds (or one double) and the master bedroom with a double bed and a single bed.
There is an extra studio downstairs with its own separate entrance from the garden, not connected with the rest of the house. Here is a double bedroom and a few steps go down in a small living room. The bathroom with shower is in this living room built underneath the mezzanine where two (young) guests can sleep. The bathroom is small with a sink, a toilet and a bidet. The shower has no door.
There is a small space underneath the outside staircase with washing machine and extra refrigerator with freezer.
The pool opens mid May and closes by the end of September.
