This is a 2 bedroom apartment set over two floors within a beautiful restored farmhouse, dating back to the eighteenth century, with private outside terrace with eating area and shared eco infinity pool. Enjoys wonderful views of the countryside.
Inside, the property is a clever fusion of both contemporary and traditional design. Guests enter the property into a lovely living area with adjacent dining and well equipped kitchen area. There is also a downstairs WC with washing machine. Moving upstairs up a contemporary metal and glass staircase, there is a bedroom with comfortable double bed along as well an additional bed cleverly arranged on a wide ledge area. There is also an adjacent twin bedroom and bathroom, decorated with beige and cream tiles and bright pictures of birds. The property has tiled floors throughout. The property is surrounded by 2 hectares of land and guests enjoy use of a lovely eco infinity swimming pool (12 x 5 metres). The apartment is one of 5 apartments within the building but it has it's own private terrace with table and chairs, ideal for al fresco dining. The apartment has lovely views over the swimming pool to the rolling hills and countryside of Umbria and Tuscany. Please note that there is a 110 euro rental charge per week for heating during the Winter months when applicable.
The setting is incredibly peaceful but is less than a kilometre to the beautiful village of Paciano where there are a selection of excellent restaurants, village shop and post office. There is also an excellent bakery which opens twice a week. It is also just 30 minutes drive from Cortona, 15 minutes from Lake Trasimeno, just under an hour from Montalcino and Pienza and just over an hour from Florence and 2 hours from Rome. It's an ideal location from which to explore both Tuscany and Umbria. A car is not essential as you can walk across the fields to the village centre however we would recommend that you rent one in order to make the most of your stay and to be able to enjoy some sightseeing.
A note from Jo
This really is a very special place to stay. You can't help but immediately feel relaxed and at home here. We can highly recommend taking one of the cookery classes on site which are run by the owner and which always receive rave reviews from our guests. You will be shown how to prepare a typical Umbrian meal using the plentiful organic produce, fresh from the garden.
