I have no close by neighbors. The property is 8 ha large and has lovely olive trees and vines. In the large garden are very big old oak trees and there are lovely views. On the grounds around the antic house you can enjoy the breathtaking views over the superb Umbrian/ Tuscan countryside. The exceptional location will give you enough opportunities to relax & dream or sightseeing.

Numerous shops, cafes and restaurants inviting you for a stroll or remain and watch the busy life in the streets.
