Property description

A beautiful family home,well furnished and equipped in a wonderful, peaceful location on a private gated estate. More than 700m altitude, but only 1.5km from a tarmac road; once through the gates, you are in another world. In total there are five privately owned houses in nearly 300 acres and each with breathtaking views across the Umbrian Hills towards the Appenines, Scopetaccio is now the only one available for rental.. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. Separate media area. Fully kitted out professional kitchen and covered portico for alfresco dining - cooks possible. Scopetaccio has an over-sized private pool and there is an exquisite Astroturf tennis court. Plentiful markets in nearby towns to replenish the larders with the most delicious local produce, which can also be enjoyed at endless trattorias nearby.

Car: Necessary

Umbria will thankfully never be the new Tuscany! It retains its traditional values and welcome for visitors, but has never pandered to hordes of tourists. What you see is genuinely what you get - some of the finest salumeria and olive oils in Italy, robust wines, locally grown fruits and vegetables. All this set in the spectacular scenery of the rolling Umbrian Hills - it is no surprise that the area is called The Green Heart of Italy. Ancient historical sites are to be found in every hill top town and the walled cities, such as Citta di Castello. The Etruscans led the good life here long before the rest of us and they left plenty of evidence of doing so! Culturally, the region hosts both internationally acclaimed festivals [Jazz, Opera, Chocolate] and local seasonal festivals often to celebrate the harvesting of olives, wine, mushrooms, asparagus, chestnuts, meats and cheeses.
