                          Looking for a place near to the most beautiful art cities of Umbria we had a vision .... and it was love at first sight: a hill, an old stone house, a 360 degree view of hills , small villages, medieval castles, fields, woods and a small lake ... and it was easy to reach through a small stretch of a white road in good condition.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                          Our corner of Heaven gave us privacy and tranquility, but at the same time yet within five minutes by car from Marsciano, full of supermarkets, banks, shops, bars, restaurants, people.A short distance from Perugia, Todi, Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto and other cities of Umbria. In a few days the vision has become our reality and after some months our loved home.
