Col Di Forche is a beautiful independent Tuscan villa with spectacular view, private swimming pool, large garden, parking, immersed in a forest of holm,oak and chestnut trees. Perched on a stunning hillside location overlooking medieval villages and the Tiber Valley but close the Village of Monterchi, in Eastern Tuscany. In the surrounding unspoilt countryside owls and woodpeckers can be heard. The property benefits of 20 acres of surrounding hillside with easy walks.
The villa was formely occupied by the owners until the 1950s. Chestnuts and furits were cultivated and livestock reared. An account book kept by previous rsidents records births and sales & other noteable events in the years of the Second World War. We purchased the land and the sadly ruined house in 2001 and carefully rebuilt it, using original stone and salvageable beams, over the following 18 months.
<b>At guests' disposal:</b> Private swimming pool, 6 x 12 m, open from 01 May to 30 September. <b>Distances:</b> Col di Forche is located at 5,5 km from the village of Monterchi. Monterchi has supermarkets, restaurants, butchers, barbers, florist, bars. In the summer there are free outdoor concerts at the Madonna del Parto Museum. Nearby are the famous Tuscan towns of Anghiari, Sansepolcro and Arezzo.
Payment is usually accepted in the quoted currency (€) unless the currency and the amount is specifically agreed in advance with the manager / advertiser.
