Citta di Castello villa description

The villa consists of four bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, it has two separate indoor lounges and a covered patio with wonderful views over the umbrian countryside adjacent to upstairs lounge. The Villa is laid out in the following way, situated on the upper floor are two master bedrooms with private bathrooms, one of these master bedrooms also has a large private roof terrace. On this floor is the main upstairs lounge and a fantastic outdoor roofed terrace with wonderful views over the large pool and surrounding countryside. Downstairs you will find two twin bedrooms again with their own bathrooms and large doors leading outside. Furthermore situated on this floor is the kitchen and another smaller sitting area leading outside onto another terrace for outside dining again with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. The property has a very large 16x6m saline pool situated on a terrace one level below the house. The property is set in beautiful tranquil countryside.

The property is surrounded by private gardens landscaped with mediterranean herbs such as Rosemary, Thyme, Sage and Camomile. There are several terraces landscaped into the hillside. Directly outside the property and outside the kitchen is a large terrace for dining and relaxing with the barbecue and a large table seating up to 10 with a huge umbrella to give shade on this suntrap. One level down surrounded by terracotta tiles, lavender, hibiscus and a lawned area is the wonderful above average sized saline pool (no chlorine) which is 16x6m and is great for swimming and playing alike. And another level down is a grassed area where we have set up a badminton net and then beyond is the oak wood which is private to the villa. Most of the villa and patios overlook the pool which means that it is also safe for children. Although the property is right in the middle of the countryside it is close to a good road with easy access to many lovely places to visit.

Wi fi internet access available. The entire property has been restored to a very high standard using local craftsmanship and materials. All the ceilings have been restored in the traditional umbrian style with terracotta tiles and chestnut beams and all floors are terracotta keeping it cool in the summer months. The entire property has central heating and therefore may also be used in the winter months. The property has several sitting rooms, one downstairs and two upstairs (one of which is a covered terrace outside) and is very adaptable to groups who may not wish to spend every moment together. Although the property is situated in wonderful tranquil countryside within a radius of 1/2 hour you can reach a number of lovely small towns and villages. The pool area is very visible from most of the house as it is situated one terrace below the property, hence you can keep an eye on children also from the property itself. Naturally very young children need to be supervised at all times.

Villa Quercia is situated on a white road which is very good, hence a normal car is fine and the white road is not too long and not too far from a tarmack road so that getting around is easy. The white road only services a couple of properties (3) and is not a through road and therefore is extreemely quiet and private.The property is situated right on the border to Tuscany (300 metres) you can literally walk to Tuscany which makes it the perfect location for visiting both of these areas.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We bought and redeveloped Villa Quercia trying to bring in all the lessons we learned renting Italian holiday villa ourselves. We live closeby and are available to assist with trips and restaurant bookings. Our children Claudia 13 and Lucas 9 love their life in Italy having moved from Bath in England seven years ago.

                  Why the Owner Chose Citta di Castello:
                  It is close to good airports (Perugia 35km and Rome 180mk), is quiet and private, has the best location and views possible and we just fell in love with it (as you will as well!)

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Local supermarkets are only 10 km away with good restaurants within 7 minutes drive but when at the villa you are in peaceful and private silence and nobody can distrub you.
