RUSTIC FARMHOUSE WITH POOL OVERLOOKING THE SPOLETO VALLEY -

Campello sul Clitunno Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Rustico (pronounced ‘roostico if you want to sound Italian) is a house of unique charm and comfort. The old section dates from the early 1600’s and consists of the kitchen, dining room and 2 bedrooms with en-suite baths. The new section has the living room/entrance foyer, a small office and 2 larger bedrooms with en-suite baths. It sits on about an acre of mostly flat land about 400 meters above sea level; it’s surrounded by olive groves, including 125 olive trees of our own. The house has easy access and ample parking, both of which are rare and valuable in this area. The house has original floors, beams, ceilings and walls but is equipped with all the modern conveniences. The dining room has a piano, a large, original fireplace. There’s no air conditioning because the stone walls are very thick and keep the house cool in the summer. We have a lovely pool, a pergola for dining, a 400 year old wood-burning oven for making pizza and other goodies, 2 grills, and a bocce court.

We've been married for 38 years. We have two grown children. We're both actors. We live in New York City as well as Umbria. Mike loves to cook and Jill loves to draw. Recently Mike has published two books about our life in Italy: "Living in a Foreign Language" and "Family Meals." MIke also has a blog _ Notes From The Culinary Wasteland -- where you can read about many of our adventures in Italy and in New York.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2003

We were traveling in Umbria and fell in love with the area. Then we saw the house and it felt like home.

There are a number of beautiful Medieval hill towns within 30 minutes of our house: including Spoleto, Montefalco, Trevi, Spello, Assisi and Perugia. We love to explore the and discover new restaurants. The area is a famous food region - noted for black truffles, olive oil, wine, pork and lamb. If you love to cook you'll have a great time shopping in the area and cooking in our kitchen. If you just love to eat, there are many wonderful inexpensive restaurants that we can recommend.

A PERFECT PLACE IN UMBRIA

  • 5 of 5
This villa was every bit as amazing as we had hoped it would be. The owners have done a remarkable job adding on to an old farmhouse, seamlessly melding the old and the new. It accommodated our two families (a group of eight) more than comfortably. We felt very well cared for by the local people who look after the place. Bianca, the property manager, was extraordinarily helpful, showing us where to buy groceries and other things in town when we arrived. And Vittoria, the housekeeper, cooked us a fabulous meal that included a delicious farro salad and braised wild boar. We made good use of the swimming pool after touring the nearby hill towns on warm days, and played countless rounds of bocce on the lavender-lined court. We even fired up the outdoor pizza oven, with surprisingly successful results. The only thing we didn't like about this place was leaving it at the end of our week there.

A DELIGHTFUL UMBRIAN SPRING!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Il Rustico for two weeks in May, a lovely time to visit Umbria. Only two or three hours by car from Rome, the location is ideal: the Vale of Umbria can be easily explored, from Spoleto to Perugia; other areas, including picturesque Norcia and Castellucio, are nearly as accessible. Wineries abound in this area as well. The glories of the house itself have been detailed by other reviewers. It is indeed tasteful and comfortable, set between hills behind and the valley below. The light is ever-changing, and one of the glories of this place is having breakfasts and dinners beneath the pergola. There is nothing like drinking your morning cappuccino while listening to cuckoos call across the hills unless it is sipping wine in the evening while the lights twinkle on in the valley.

Our best memories from our stay are of the people and the food of the area; they seem inextricable. Bianca, the villa's "concierge," is a wonder--efficient and charming. She made it easy to settle into Il Rustico, and as an added bonus, she brought us some of her family's olive oil and made us a cake called crescionda, a specialty of the region. We especially enjoyed frequenting the shops in the village, often buying groceries for dinner after a long day of exploring. Laura's pasta shop, La Buongustaia, provided us with excellent fresh pasta. (Laura's husband, Domenico, was planting the orto at Il Rustico while we were there; if you visit a bit later, you will be able to reap the fruits--or vegetables--of his labor.) The macelleria, with Ugo the butcher, was a wonder; he explained how he cured his proscuitto and pancetta--hundreds of them hand from the ceiling of his shop. The meats he sold us were locally produced and tasted the way meat should. The nearby alimentari's proprietors showed us how to eat fresh raw fava beans with local young pecorino, a taste of Umbrian spring.

One of the final days we spent at Il Rustico, we met an elderly gentelman walking along the lane to the villa. We managed to communicate enough to discover that he was collecting wild asparagus, one of the delicacies of spring in Umbria. He showed us how to find it, and later, we were able to gather more than enough from Il Rustico's grounds to have for dinner. Such delicious serendipity, which truly typified out stay at this lovely Umbrian getaway. We hope to return soon!

ONE MEMORABLE WEEK

  • 5 of 5
What an exquisite villa! From the moment we drove through the gate we five ladies knew we had made a great choice. The house and location were absolutely beautiful. Each day we would tour the hill towns and return in the late afternoon to sit by the pool and drink wine under the delightful grape arbor while enjoying the fabulous view. Lovely and efficient Bianca, our local contact, was always available to offer guidance and furnish provisions. A fine time was had by all - much more than we had hoped for.

TRULY PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Jill and Mike,

Thank you so much for sharing your extraordinary home with us. It was every bit as glorious as the photographs! We had a heavenly week which we won’t soon forget.

Some days were spent taking wonderful day trips - Assisi, Spoleto, Spello, Montefalco – all such stunningly preserved medieval towns. Other days we simply relaxed in the swimming pool and enjoyed cooking in your fantastically equipped kitchen, using fresh produce from the garden and divine meats from Ugo’s butcher shop (THANK YOU for that recommendation). Honestly, it was a dream living among all those olive trees and dining each evening al fresco under the pergola.

Bianca, by the way, took wonderful care of us, checking in on us every couple of days to make sure all was going smoothly.

We’re already looking forward to the next time!
Grazie!
