It is located in the Umbrian hills between the bustling historic town of Umbertide and The enchanting Gubbio, enjoying easy reach of the Niccone Valley, Lake Trasimeno, Cortona and Perugia to name just a few. The area is steeped in history, sights and activities. Markets and shops are full of good quality local produce, meats, cheeses, wine and beer. The elevated setting is enchanting giving some breathtaking views which will welcome you each morning with distant views, scented air and amazing sunrise. The roads are well surfaced and easy to drive making the cottage very accessable but very private and secure due to it being set back from the quiet road and having remote controlled security gates. The cottage sleeps 4 in comfort in a large double room and a twin bed room which can be made up as a comfortable double depending on guest requirements. There is a bright and airy fully equipped kitchen, the living room is very comfortable and welcoming with ample cosy seating for everyone a log burning stove for cooler early and late season evenings. French windows open onto the secluded private terrace which enjoys the most magnificent views, the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed breakfast or wind up the day with al fresco dining and a good bottle of local wine under the stars. The living room has a tv with sky and a dvd player and large selection of dvd's. There is a collection of board games suitable for all ages. The swimming pool is 12m x 4m it is very child friendly having steps and a gentle sloping bottom from 1.2m to 2.4. The pool is private to your group and is quite secluded with some partial shade from the trees which is essential for hot afternoon relaxing under the Umbrian sun. The owners are English and have lived here for many years developing the property into what is now an idyllic holiday getaway. They have some very friendly dogs and cats which love to interact with guests but they do not enter the rental property grounds. Margot is an excellent cook and will offer a catering option, if you take her up on the offer she will lavish you with an authentic Italian 4 course menue at a minimal cost. On arrival you will find a generous welcome pack consisting of provisions to make beverages and an evening meal with milk bread and butter, making arrival easier. The apartment is available to groups of more than 4 and up to a total of 8 guests. The chestnut beams and traditional tiled floors give the apartment a rustic style which can only add to the whole holiday experience. It sleeps 4 in comfort and Umbrian cottage style, all the living areas are spacious and well furnished. The double bedroom has a large double bed, the second bedroom is a twin but can be made up as a comfortable double if requested. The living room is comfortable and relaxing with ample soft seating with a log burning stove for cooler months. the kitchen runs off the living room and is very well equipped and spacious with the door opening onto the private secluded terrace which also enjoyes the views of rolling Umbrian tree lined hills and valleys. This makes the property perfect for large familys or two familys wanting to share making this a very good value accomodation. The cost of the apartment is an extra €600.00 which will bring the total cost to €1500.00 for the whole property. Due to the nature of tripadvisors booking system to book the property please choose to book for either 4 or 8 guests and the minimum is 7 nights. If you need to query this please contact me. And now for the 2017 season, A complementary welcome meal will be left for you on arrival to get your holiday off to a good start, this will consist of 3 courses of an authentic Italian menu made with quality local produce. It will be left in your refrigerator ready to be warmed up and served when your ready to dine inside or al fresco. November Umbrian Earth Tremors. Our area and property is totally untouched by the November tremors as the Apennine mountain range which is about 40km+ away protects our part of Umbria from the active fault, our beautiful countryside is totally safe and untouched, please feel confident to holiday in Umbria as ever.

How to get there
The nearest airport is Perugia which now has flights from the uk every day Ryan Air operate from London Stanstead and now run a Saturday service which if booked well in advance can be quite cheap. This is great if your traveling with children as the flight is usually just two and a quarter hours and Perugia airport is probabily the quickest airport to get out of. Perugia is just a half hours drive by Taxi or hire car. Rome and Pisa airports are just over two hours drive which is usually quite effortless. Ancona is just over an hour away, and Florence airport two and a half hours.
