Umbertide Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Just Renovated 5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Massive Private Pool, Gorgeous Views
Casale Napoletano is a 5 bedroom farmhouse located in a natural reserve area in the Umbrian foothills of the Italian countryside. Situated in the province of Perugia, the villa is very close to Tuscany and you can reach cities such as Florence, Cortona, San Gimignano, Chianti, Montepulciano as well as all of the splendid hill towns of Umbria including Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Deruta, Gubbio, Montefalco, Orvieto, local wineries, monasteries, etc...
The property has an exceptionally large private pool and 15m long (50 feet) pergola which overlooks the rolling countryside. Perfect for long sunny days or a dip with cocktails after a day of touring the surroundings.
A small country road winds its way up from the valley to San Benedetto where an even smaller, private, ½ km (about ¼ mile) lane leads to this wonderful retreat where life is slow and uncomplicated. Surrounded by olive trees, Casale Napoletano has been transformed in 2013 into an immaculate and beautiful property. The house offers complete privacy, nestled in the surrounding beauty of Umbria with no other residences in sight. It is likely that the closest you will get to stress is choosing which terrace on which to sip a glass of local wine while sampling locally made cheeses, meat, olive oils and tartuffi (truffles) with fresh, crusty bread. While Casale Napoletano’s situation is exceptionally private, it is only a 5 minute drive to the town of Umbertide which has several supermarkets, restaurants, trattorias, cafes, a small Old Town and a market every Wednesday.
The home has been completely and beautifully renovated from top to bottom in 2013 using only local materials and traditional Umbrian craftsmanship. It has all new appliances, including dishwasher an American style refrigerator, italian-made oven with 5 gas burners, new bathrooms including a deep free-standing Philippe Starck bathtub, custom made glass showers, large hot water heater, new plumbing, windows and screens, brand new mattresses, pillows and linens. You are assured of a comfortable stay. Perfect for families and friends! The outdoor brick oven is great for making pizzas and meats.
If interested, the owner can help arrange cooks, cooking lessons in English or Italian, wine tasting at the house, delicious prepared local meals delivered to you upon arrival or during your stay, or just about anything else you may want.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi, we want to thank you again for a wonderful stay in Umbertide. We really enjoyed your home and it was perfect for the group we were with. We really appreciate all the tips and coordination you gave us to help make our week very special and we really felt like we had a vacation.
As you know we dined twice with Franco and Anna, we would like to ask you to send them a note or when you speak to them next to let them know that we loved the experience they gave us. They are very special people that warmed our hearts and made our vacation memorable. You have really been lucky to meet such special people that take your guests in with such open arms and warmth.
The pizza experience was great, we really appreciated them showing us how to make the pizzas.
On behalf of my friends, thank you and I hope the review I put on is visible now to you.
Best wishes to you and your family and kisses to Franco and Anna from all of us!
