Property description

Italian cultural immersion! This listing is back on the market after many improvements! Relax in a charming and comfortable private house located in the historic center of a small Umbrian hill town, Pozzo. Enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony that overlooks the piazza, while you practice your Italian with the neighbors. Sip a glass of the famous Sagrantino wine while you enjoy the local specialties of the region - truffles, local meats and cheeses, and the wonderfully fresh vegetables. The Sagrantino road awaits you with its wealth of world-class wineries on the road that leads to medieval hill towns such as Montefalco, Spello, Assisi and Bevagna. The house has two bedrooms, one with a huge brand-new bathroom, including a large bathtub and a separate shower. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with nostalgic chenille bedspreads and vintage furniture. Windows open onto a vista of the vineyard covered hills of Umbria - life doesn't get any better. The kitchen is brand new and fully equipped; there is a dining room, complete with fireplace, and a comfortably appointed living room with another full bathroom. The house is furnished throughout with vintage pieces that were originally used in Hollywood films. Getting around Umbria is easy! You can easily travel around to all the beautiful hill towns, wineries, restaurants, and in general be wowed by the beautiful, green softly rolling hills that surround the house. A multi-lingual representative is also available to help with any of your needs, including winery tours, travel arrangements, restaurant reservations etc. A car is definitely recommended.

Other Amenities

  • This is an opportunity to truly experience living in Italy. Pozzo is not on any "tourist" maps, and therefore has a wonderful small-town feel. Even if you don't speak Italian, gestures will always make the point. Be sure to visit the local alimentare store (just 30 meters from the house), where local meats, cheeses, produce and other household items can be purchased, and even cooking tips are offered by the owner and his wife....moreless

About: Mike is in the cinema industry, and Diane is a retired ballerina. We have two Old English Sheepdogs and live in Burbank, California. We love to travel - especially Italy!

Why Gualdo Cattaneo PG, Italy:
We always loved Italy - the culture, the language, the food, and finally decided "hey, why not buy a house there?" So, that's what we did.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the friendly atmosphere of Pozzo. When we visit, we feel like a part of the family. It's a small town, and everybody knows everybody, and there are some of the nicest people you will ever meet there!
