Camporsevoli is unique in providing guests with the opportunity to live in a private medieval hamlet in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. It's strategic location, on the border of Umbria and Lazio, and just an hour and a half from both Florence and Rome provides for limitless travel possibilities. At the same time, it's peaceful and relaxing atmosphere makes Camporsevoli always a joy to return to after a long day of sightseeing.
Casa del Neri (250 m2, 2700 sq. ft) has an exclusive outdoor area, furnished with deckchairs and tables in the shade of a large linden tree, perfect for relaxing, & a BBQ and large wooden table for outdoor cooking and dining.
There are four comfortable bedrooms, two on each floor each with its own bathroom, which can sleep up to eight people. The kitchen and dining room are located on the first floor, while the living room is located downstairs, open to the outdoor space. Both the dining room and the living room have a fireplace. The kitchen is complete with all the essentials such as a four burner stovetop, electric oven, microwave & dishwasher. The house is fully equipped with wifi and the shared washing machine is located in the far rear of the house, away from sight and sound. Upon request, we can also provide all the essentials for hosting small children or babies and provide ramps for wheelchair accessibility.
The pool is just a few minutes’ walk, at the end of a splendid cypress lined path, which makes it extremely quiet and if you have children, far from any danger. Just below the pool, there is a pool house completed with a bathroom & spacious changing room – where you can leave bathing suits and towels – & an honesty bar with refrigerator.
Just up the way, ‘The Corner’ honesty bar is open all day, offering made-to-order espresso, snacks, refreshments, local wine and our own olive oil. Enjoy its amenities, including a book exchange library, games and local guides while lounging on the bar’s outdoor shaded couch.
At Camporsevoli, we are pleased – upon request – to set up cooking lessons to learn the local cuisine. If you are more interested in drinking rather than eating, we can also organize comparative wine tastings to hone your palate and the knowledge of enology. Are you interested in another type of art such as painting, photography, writing, or cinema? Here at Camporsevoli, through Il Magazzino, you will find all the contacts and suggestions to make your dreams come true.
While you are busy with your activities – whether it be relaxing in the pool or taking a tour or a photography course – we can also organize babysitting for your children.
Outdoor sports offer perspective that are otherwise difficult to find and help to rediscover a reality of life and movement that we now tend to forget. A horse ride amid the crete of Val d'Orcia, a bike ride along the reclaimed land path between Chiusi & Arezzo, a walk to the Cross of Mount Cetona with a picnic, wild boar hunting in a private reserve, a boat ride on Lake Trasimeno or Lake Bolsena, far from the chaos of the city, whether it be large or small. But also immersing yourself in the underground aqueducts of Città della Pieve, rafting in the Marmore Falls, driving a Vespa between Montepulciano & Pienza, or riding up a mule path on a mountain bike. In San Casciano dei Bagni you can swim in the ancient pools, or reach the Fonteverde Centre for an outstanding five star spa. The Bagni di San Filippo with its hot stream and its spectacular white encrusted cascades are an ideal destination on a cloudy afternoon. Bagno Vignoni, is on the road to Montalcino with its central pool dating back to the 1500s & the loggia of Saint Catherine will take your breath away.
Camporsevoli can accommodate up to more than 40 guests. It has a consecrated church for marriages celebrated by our parish priest (who speaks English), & endless corners to celebrate non-Catholic marriages. The reception room in the main villa can accommodate up to 60 people seated, with the garden in front where – if necessary with a canopy – can seat up to 250.
Camporsevoli is the ideal base location to travel from, located halfway between Rome and Florence and within a short drive of countless important and idyllic towns and small cities worth visiting. You need go no further than Cetona, San Casciano dei Bagni & Citta della Pieve, a mere 20 minutes drive from Camporsevoli, to enjoy some of the best views of Valdichiana & the Val d'Orcia while lingering over a cappuccino or stopping for a pre-dinner aperitif. For day trips, consider Orvieto, Perugia, Cortona, Assisi, Montepulciano, Montalcino, all of which are just one hour away. For those who wish to meander through the Tuscan countryside, enjoy a slightly longer trip just over an hour to Siena or Arezzo.
