Overview

Castel Giorgio Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Pool 20x3m, sauna, gym, 10 ha. parking lot, at a ht. of 550m with panoramic view

'Santa Maria Della Concezione:' the former cloister name indicates a place steeped in history. Its partly 700 year old buildings were extensively restored and are now rented out as lavish holiday homes. SMC offers three units in respectively completely separate buildings: 1st 'villa Cypress; '2nd 'Roof Garden House'; and 3rd the ' Cottage'. Altogether, there are 6 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms which can accommodate 13 persons. With the sofas-cum-bed (in every living room) even 15 persons can holiday in SMC. The large 10 hectares park offers every house its own private atmosphere with its own garden and terrace, with an outdoor barbecue and comfortable garden furniture. The estate is characterized by its ancient trees and its special location: Cypresses, pines and oaks give protection, security and the comfortable breezy shade in the Umbrian summer. SMC lies at a height of 550 m on the edge of a (high) plateau with a 360° panorama over the valley and a free view of the wide Umbrian scenery.

Santa Maria: pool, sauna, fitness: The long, narrow pool has a changing room, shower (hot and cold) and a bathroom. It is on the slope under the cypress trees belonging to the main house. It is bordered by a wood-planked patio and deck chairs (see photos). A gnarled, old fig tree, with delicious fruits for our guests, offers shade. The Klafs sauna has 3 different sauna settings and can be used free of charge with prior arrangement (warm up time is about 1 hour). The furnishings include 3 different showers, Kneipp basin, deck chairs, fitness machines and weights.

St. Maria : Mediterranean Sea + Lago di Bolsena: The Ultima Spiaggia beach has earned its name as the most south laying or 'last' beach in Tuscany. We visit it weekly during the summer. This very well cultivated beach is open from the mid-May to mid-September: chair rentals, deck chair rentals, sunshade rentals, showers, restaurants with service or self-service (you can also be served at your own deck chair), attended and covered parking spaces etc. It can be reached in about 1 hour by car from Castel Giorgio. The Lago di Bolsena (Latium) is only 23 km away - all water sports are possible here. (Diameter 13 km, depth 150 m) Thanks to the proximity to the sea (80 km), the lake is not often visited; quiet, empty fields and olive groves border the water. Specialty: the Corregone is a type of trout that tastes delicious and is prepared delectably in many restaurants. The fish is also useful as it eats insect larvae from the water surface, so that there are hardly any insects.

St. Maria: History: The site of the former monastery of Santa Maria della Concezione (SMC) is on a historic peak: to the east, it overlooks the Valle di Lapone (in the direction of Orvieto); to the south it borders the rocky cliff. The Etruscans had settled here, witnessed by the ancient tuff grottoes facing the sun. In Roman times, the old Cassia Trail ran directly through the site. In the Middle Ages a formidable fortified tower indicated the limit of the Papal States ruling here and old church registers stand testimonial of the monastic life in the time of the Trent council. Since the secularization the buildings served mainly for agricultural purposes and are now in the possession of the Bracci Testa Secca family whose summer residence is in the immediate neighborhood even today.

CASA BELLA

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento è arredato in modo ottimale; c'è tutto quello di cui uno ha bisogno per una vacanza: frigo,lavastoviglie, stoviglie e veramente tutto il necessario per cucinare (gli affittuari sono dei buongustai ed amano cucinare). Non mancano tv ed internet (wlan).

Il luogo è un po’ appartato ma ottimo per una vacanza con la famiglia o anche per una persona che cerca la solitudine e la pace magari per scrivere qualcosa! È superfluo parlare delle meraviglie raggiungibili con una breve escursione in auto.

Il panorama è quello tipico umbro per cui incantevole. Per chi si sveglia presto l'alba a volte è indimenticabile, a noi sono capitate anche mattinate affascinanti con nella valle un po’ di nebbia o di foschia o forse erano nuvolette basse non so ed ho potuto fare bellissime fotografie.

Solo la piscina (che però noi non abbiamo usato) non è riscaldata e, a seconda delle stagioni, c'è a volte un po’ di vento che d'altra parte in piena estate è una vera grazia di Dio!

***

Eine Ferienwoche in Umbrien im Sommer 2014: Das Haus ist optimal ausgestattet. Man findet alles vor, was für den Ferienaufenthalt nötig ist: Kühlschrank, Geschirrspülmaschine, Waschmaschine und tatsächlich alles, was man fürs Kochen braucht (die Eigentümer sind Feinschmecker und kochen selbst gern). Auch Fernseher und Internet (Wlan) fehlen nicht.

Der Ort ist ein wenig abgelegen, geeignet für Ferien mit der Familie, aber auch für Personen, die Einsamkeit und Ruhe suchen, vielleicht um etwas zu schreiben. Es ist überflüssig die Sehenswürdigkeiten zu erwähnen, die man mit einer kurzen Fahrt im Auto erreichen kann.

Das Panorama ist typisch für Umbrien, wunderschön. Wer früh aufsteht kann unvergessliche Sonnenaufgänge erleben, wir haben faszinierende Morgenstunden erlebt mit ein wenig Nebel oder Dunst im Tal, ich weiß nicht, möglicherweise waren es auch niedrige Wolken. Ich konnte sehr schöne Fotos machen.

Das Schwimmbad, das wir jedoch nicht benutzt haben, wird nicht beheizt und je nach Jahreszeit ist es ab und zu recht windig, was andererseits im Hochsommer ein wahres Gottesgeschenk ist.

Wunderbar

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet und hat einen großartigen Blick ins Tal.

Es gibt zwei getrennte Schlafzimmer mit Bädern, einen schönen Wohnraum und eine gut ausgestattete Küche mit Waschmaschine, Gasherd, Spülmaschine. Alles gut durchdacht. Das ganze Anwesen ist traumhaft. Ich war zum 12.! Mal da und komme wieder. Zu jeder Jahreszeit.

"So wie Italien sein soll..."

  • 5 of 5

Es ist nun wirklich lange überfällig endlich eine Bewertung des von mir so gern besuchten Ferienhauses in Umbrien zu schreiben. Bereits seit einigen Jahren wohne ich regelmäßig im CasaCara. Der Grund? Traumlage, ursprüngliches Umbrien, ein Gelände, das Ruhe und Erholung verspricht und auch hält, eben einfach ein schönes Ambiente. Hier hat findet man noch den Teil Italiens, den mittlerweile so viele Touristen vergeblich In der benachbarten Toskana suchen, ohne auf gutes Essen und Trinken oder Kultur verzichten zu müssen.

Das Haus selbst hat eine sehr schöne Atmosphäre und ist vollständig ausgestattet. Abends grillen, auf der Terrasse in das tief gelegene Tal blicken, tagsüber mal den einen oder anderen Ausflug planen oder an den Lago di Bolsena fahren, so ist das für mich Urlaub. Ich war bisher in verschiedenen Jahren im Frühjahr, Hochsommer oder Herbst dort und jede Zeit hatte ihren Reiz. Alles in Allem - ich komme bestimmt wieder!

Landhaus mit schönstem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind regelmäßige Gäste des CasaCaras und fühlen uns hier immer sehr wohl.

Das CasaCara liegt auf einem großzügigen und sehr schönem Grundstück. Man hat einen wunderbaren und unvergesslichen Ausblick über das Tal bis hin zu den Bergen, den man beim entspannten Frühstück auf der Terrasse unter der Pergola genießen kann.

Das Haus ist sauber, gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, verfügt über eine Top-Ausstattung vor allem in der Küche.

Hier ist man ungestört und kann die Zeit vollends genießen.

Kurz und knapp: Eine echte Empfehlung!

The former monastery building of Santa Maria is located near Orvieto, on a hill-crest, 500 m above the sea level. This location provides a balanced climate all year round due to which popes and clergies had made it their summer residence. The 360° view extends up to the Apennines. Absolute tranquility between the gentle hills of Umbria and an unspoilt nature without industries are purely the best prerequisites for relaxation. Nevertheless, the highway can be reached in only 20 minutes, and the cultural cities of Siena, Florence and Rome in about 1 hour. The neighbouring towns (4km) are Castel Giorgio (founded by the pope’s nephew Giorgio) and Castle Viscardo. Here, you will find a bakery, a butcher and an Italian grocery store, as well as a bar. However, the Etruscan and cathedral city of Orvieto (15 km) is the center and cultural attraction. One of the cleanest Italian lakes, Lago di Bolsena, is located beyond the next range of hills (20 km). You can reach the sea within 1 hour.

Other Activities: Sauna and fitnessroom on the main floor of the Villa

Golf: There are a number of golf courses located in the surroundings (1 to 2 hours drive).
