About the neighbourhood
The Niccone valley is one of the most beautiful spots in Umbria, presided over by the distinctive conical shape of the local landmark mountain, Monte Acuto. The Casa Nova estate, high up on the south-facing slopes, has been organically farmed since the 1980s and is a riot of wildflowers amongst olive groves and orchards. Refer to our website to get full details of the artistic sights nearby (one of us is an Art Historian specialising in the Italian Renaissance and the house was chosen because it is ideally positioned for exploring the artistic heritage of Southern Tuscany and the Upper Tiber Valley). The views can't be adequately described - you'll just have to leaf through the many photographs on our website - but it is enough to know that they inspired Raphael, Piero della Fran... more
Getting around
A car is really pretty essential to enjoying a stay at Casa Nova. There is a good range of shops and restaurants within a ten minute drive but any of these would be a fairly hearty walk away. If, however, there is at least one driver in your party, it is possible for some of your guests to go off on adventures of their own, being dropped at the railway stations at Terontola (mainline, Milan-Florence-Rome services) or Niccone (local line between Arezzo, Perugia and Southern Umbria) or heading off on bikes and being picked up at the end of the day.
