About C D Taylor

After 20 years living in London, I moved to Tuscany to realise my dream. My aim is for all others to experience this wonderful area whilst staying in stylish yet affordable accommodation.

C D Taylor purchased this apartment in 2007

Why C D Taylor chose Umbria

I was looking for……...A traditional Tuscan style …renovated... rustic yet location but within easy reach of a …outdoor airport access! Not such an easy task given many of the properties I previously viewed didn't even have a roof! Then I came across Selve Vecchie. The property had been renovated keeping the rustic charm I was looking for yet with modern amenities. There was a large pool, ample outdoor space and topped off with panoramic views. The location was ideal. Only 5 mins away from the charming village of Citta della Pieve, which is on the border of Umbria & Tuscany. And finally, Perugia airport only 45 minutes drive away. I bought it immediately. I said yes on the spot!

What makes this apartment unique

Waking up to a cup of Italian coffee and taking in the views in sun and silence! The pool is pretty nice too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely decorated apartment in the heart of Umbria. We have stayed at this charming apartment now 5 years in row so it's obvious it stole our hearts! The apartment has been re-decorated earlier this year and is now even more lovely. There is also a private patio for outdoor dining. Inside you have all amenities and more. Outside the communal area is large with quite a big pool and great 360° view over the surrounding area. The location is superb, remote yet very close to Citta della Pieve, a nice little town with many bars, restaurants, super markets etc. Also nearby are Perugia, Montepulciano, the Trasimeno Lake, Orvieto... And from Chiusi both Roma and Firenze are easily reached by train. The local surroundings are also excellent for cycling. The apartment is ideal for a romantic getaway holiday!
