Location

Car: Necessary

Cinque Querce é Mezzo is situated just a 2 minute drive (2 km) from the Tuscan border. Our nearest large town is Sansepolcro in Tuscany, the birthplace of Piero Della Francesca, the renaissance painter, and Anghiari, Monterchi and Arezzo are all within a 15 - 30 minutes drive.

In the opposite direction is Città di Castello in Umbria which is a 25 minutes drive away.

Our position gives the visitor a wonderful opportunity to compare the diverse style of architecture, food and culture of the Papal controlled Umbria and the Medici controlled Tuscany.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Gilly is a garden designer and has many published books on gardens and interiors, and Dennis is a semi retired advertising man. We have 2 small and very friendly dogs and we both speak Italian as well as having a wealth of knowledge of this beautiful and unique part of Italy. Hence we can offer advice and information easily. We can arrange for a private chef to come and cook for you at the house, and this is charged at cost. All linens are provided including pool towels and are professionally cleaned. All bathrooms include a hairdryer and robe for each guest. Central heating is charged at cost during the colder winter months, but wood for the two wood burning stoves and additional fireplace is provided free of charge.

Why the Owner Chose Citta di Castello:
We chose the house as a home rather than a rental, but after being here for 10 years, we purchased another property 10 km away which we have lived in since June 2012

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The position of the house has been the most stunning and unique benefit. The hills above us are perfect for walking and enjoying the wildlife of birds, deer and many other parts of animal life. The gardens and views from the house are magnificent yet we are only 2 minutes away from great restaurants, shops and commercial activity. In other words the best of both worlds. The privacy of the pool area is stunning and the 'al fresco' dining areas conducive to great lunches and dinners.
