Le Stalle is a beautifully converted 18c stone farmhouse offering 250 sq.m of comfortable living space. It's an ideal location for families and groups of friends wanting to spend a relaxing holiday together in the peaceful, achingly beautiful Umbrian hills.
The villa is on two levels. Downstairs the large open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room are separated by two original stone arches. The kitchen is fully equipped for large groups. The dining table seats 10 people as does the sitting room. There's an additional spacious sitting room/library and guest bathroom with shower.
Upstairs there is another well stocked library and a corridor runs the length of the house connecting the 5 ensuite bedrooms. Three French windows open up to a wide outdoor terrace which faces the forest behind giving the sensation of immediate connection with nature. The farmhouse has two open fireplaces and a further cast iron wood- burning stove in the library and central heating for winter.
Outdoors: there are spacious terraces for sitting and dining al fresco while enjoying the view of the terraced garden and valley beyond. The large swimming pool (14x7m) is a good-sized exercise pool that guests really enjoy in summer. The surrounding area is paved and gives ample space for sun beds and lounging areas. Shade is provided by a pergola as well as two mature walnut trees and there's also lots of space for sunbathing. At Poggio Le Stalle the delights of nature are always present. In front of the house there is a lovely wild-style terraced garden set out on four terraces with a treasure of herbs, mediterranean xeriscape plants, fragrant climbing roses and jasmine, plus lots of other bee and butterfly -friendly plants. The property itself backs onto a forested nature reserve. The immediate vicinity is a great place for walking, discovering wild flowers and foraging for the seasonal culinary delights on offer: mushrooms, wild asparagus, 'cicoria', blackberries, borage and wild garlic. We are off the beaten track, nestled in a valley that backs onto protected forestland yet we are also close to the medieval town of Amelia and many other famous hillside towns, with the unique artistic features and culinary specialties they offer. The surrounding countryside makes for great walking, touring and exploring. And Rome is only a 90min drive away.
