EXCEPTIONAL HOUSES ON PRIVATE GATED ESTATE

Umbertide Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

4 Double bedrooms - ensuite, sleeps 10

Discovered and acquired in 2000, the five ruins on the Castello delle Racchiusole Estate have been meticulously restored using only traditional materials, but definitely with 21st century facilities. More then 700m altitude, but only 1.5km from a tarmac road; once through the gates, you are in another world. Five houses in nearly 300 acres and each with breathtaking views across the Umbrian Hills towards the Appenines. All bedroom have ensuite bathrooms. Separate media areas. Fully kitted out professional kitchens and covered porticos for alfresco dining - cooks possible. Both the available houses have over-sized private pools and there is an exquisite Astroturf tennis court. Plentiful markets in nearby towns to replenish the larders with the most delicious local produce, which can also be enjoyed at endless trattorias nearby.

Details for Scopetaccio 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10, 4 Bathrooms

There are four large bedrooms, all ensuite, one of which is huge and easily accommodates the two sets of full sized bunks in a colourful children/teens' room. Large sitting room with American wood burner. Dining room with doors to terraces on both sides of house. Barbecue area. Professional kitchen fully fitted to chef's standards. Separate laundry.

Umbria will thankfully never be the new Tuscany! It retains its traditional values and welcome for visitors, but has never pandered to hordes of tourists. What you see is genuinely what you get - some of the finest salumeria and olive oils in Italy, robust wines, locally grown fruits and vegetables. All this set in the spectacular scenery of the rolling Umbrian Hills - it is no surprise that the area is called The Green Heart of Italy. Ancient historical sites are to be found in every hill top town and the walled cities, such as Citta di Castello. The Etruscans led the good life here long before the rest of us and they left plenty of evidence of doing so! Culturally, the region hosts both internationally acclaimed festivals [Jazz, Opera, Chocolate] and local seasonal festivals often to celebrate the harvesting of olives, wine, mushrooms, asparagus, chestnuts, meats and cheeses.
