About the Property
Typical stone construction, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
The Perfect spot for a family with kids, a couple wanting a romantic and secluded place, or an artist needing quiet in an inspirational setting.
The position of the property is perfect because it is not far from the comforts of civilization, yet you are alone on your wooded hillside without the noise of farm equipment, traffic, or neighbors. Also, the property sits up high enough so there is no need for Air Conditioning.
Visit at a short distance: Gubbio, Assisi, Cortona, San Sepolcro, Citta di Castello and other villages and cities. Follow the Wine Route through Umbria and taste the incomparable Sagrantino di Montefalco and other great wines. This is also a great Olive Oil region and you can visit local groves. You can also buy direct Umbrian fabrics in Umbertide or the famous ceramics of Deruta.

Year Purchased: 1993
About: My wife is from Rome, I am from Connecticut, and we met in Honduras! For the past twenty+ years we have worked as expatriates, but this is our base and where we want to spend our free time.
Why Montone, Perugia, Italy:
My wife would escape the heat and chaos of Rome each summer and stay in this area, so as soon as we had enough saved up we bought this old farm house; a real fix-er-upper, and now look at it! We did not buy it as a vacation rental property, but there is so much extra room that we decided to share it (and help offset some of our expenses).
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We are so close to being far away. With the amazing local food, great views, and peaceful surroundings we just feel so good the moment we arrive. One local Capuchin monk commented, 'This place feels so Franciscan!' We agree, there is something so soothing about this place; no exaggeration. Want the place all to yourself? Don't feel like sharing the pool? We can arrange complete privacy for you (in peak season for 20% premium for exclusive use of property)
