Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I have bought a farm ruin in 2000 and now I am renting the house to everyone who likes to spend their holidays in a beautiful house in Umbria. The locating is fantastic, 90 km from Rome and Florence on the Autostrada di SOLE. I love living here and to have interesting, fun guests.

Why the Owner Chose Città della Pieve, Perugia, Italy:
The house is very privately set, but close to the A1 Autostrada di Sole. You can reach the property easily from Rom and Florence. The trainstation is 10 min. away from the grounds. I have nice neighbours, but not to close. The property is 8 ha large and has lovely olivetrees and vines. In the large garden are very big old oak trees and there are lovely views.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The house has an air ventilated roof that is like a natural air-condition. By restoring an old farm house the character of the buildings in the 18th century has been maintained and we left many typical Umbrian details. The garden has wonderful big old trees and special plants..
