PRETTY RIVERBANK COTTAGE + TWO EXTRA ROOMS IF NEEDED. LOVELY POOL AND GARDEN.

Umbertide Cottage Rental Photos and Description

In total 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 8 people Free Internet

The Mill and Ferryman’s Cottage are two self contained detached cottages, next door to each other on the banks of the Tiber River, with a lovely garden in which there is an attractive free-form swimming pool.

The situation is ideal, quiet, yet close to all amenities. The cottages are within walking distance of the village and train station and less than ten minutes drive to the centre of two bustling market towns, Citta di Castello and Umbertide;

We are letting the Ferryman's cottage with two bedrooms and two bathrooms with an option to rent further accommodation in two double/twin rooms + full bathroom in our house, the Mill, next door.

The Ferryman's cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the ground floor of the Mill has two lovely double/twin rooms with a full bathroom between.

The cottage is comfortably equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, cooker and fridge/freezer has access to satellite TV.

Satellite TV: Ferryman's cottages have access to Italian satellite TV

Foodies: This property makes a wonderful base from which to explore some superb restaurants in the area. One of which offers fantastic cookery courses (in English). If you are interested please enquire and we can book you in.

Fishing and golf: You can fish from the garden, there are mostly roach and chub although at certain times of the year you can catch huge carp!

The nearest golf course is 9 hole at the Fattoria Caldese in Citta di Castello. However a little further afield there is a lovely 18 hole parkland course, Santa Sabina at Ellera in Perugia.

Just 20 minutes away is the beautiful Robert Trent Jones Jr course of Antognolla.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Just felt I had to write and thank you for our lovely stay in Montecastelli. The house is charming and comfortable as well as being convenient for excursions and local shopping. Enjoyed spotting kingfishers flashing up and down the riverbank!

Very nice and peaceful location

  • 4 of 5
We spent 3 satisfied weeks in "la Barca" where we were very kindly welcome by Alex and Maurizia. We were particularly satisfied by the size and depth of the swimming pool well adapted for children but also for adults, by the good quality of beds in the main location and the general equipment available. The weather was unfortunately not always very good and we didn't take advantage enough of the terrace in the garden. Only downside was the fact that the home provided with a kitchen has no direct access to the garden. It is only the house with rooms only (bed& breakfast) who gives on the terrace and garden.

Kleines Paradies im Herzen Umbriens

  • 5 of 5
Unsere familiären Wurzeln liegen in Umbrien, weshalb wir seit Jahrzehnten regelmässig hier Urlaub machen und schon diverse Unterkünfte probiert haben.

Das kleine Bed and Breakfast direkt am Tiber in Montecastelli bei Umbertide toppt bisher alles. Ein stilecht und sehr komfortabel restauriertes kleines Cottage mit zwei weiteren Zimmern samt Bad im Haupthaus. Für die Selbstversorgung sind inkl. Spülmaschine, Mikrowelle und Waschmaschine alle Annehmlichkeiten geboten, um den Urlaub genießen zu können. Der Garten direkt über dem Tiber ist ein ruhiges Paradies, in dem es sich auch bei sommerlicher Hitze nicht nur im wunderschönen Pool sondern auch im Schatten des alten Baumbestands das Leben genießen lässt. Der Essplatz unter belaubter Pergola mit gemauertem Kamingrill lässt keine Wünsche offen und im romantischen Licht der Glühwürmchen bei einem Glas Wein möchte man fast auch noch die Nacht dort statt im bequemen Schlafzimmer verbringen.

Die Gastgeber sind mehr als zuvorkommend, Alessandro hat deutsche Wurzeln und spricht beide Sprachen perfekt, aber auch englisch. Von Insidertipps zum Einkaufen über kulturelle und historische Sehenswürdigkeiten bis hin zu einem gemütlichen gemeinsamen Grillabend, bei dem man sich gegenseitig über das Leben im jeweiligen Land austauschen kann, hilfsbereitere Gastgeber sind kaum vorstellbar.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt unglaublich genossen, waren mit zwei Familien und insgesamt vier Jungs im Alter von 4 bis 11 Jahren dort, davon ein behindertes Kind, und alle haben sich rundum wohlgefühlt.

Am Liebsten würden wir diesen Geheimtipp an Urlaubsdomizil für uns behalten.....aber Alessandro und Maurizia haben ganz sicher eine aufrichtige und herzliche Empfehlung verdient!

Wir sehen uns wieder....irgendwann.

a few things to know before you come

  • 3 of 5
Maurizia and Alex are very nice people, Maurizia even baked us a delicious cake at our last night & the house was very clean, HOWEVER there are a few things that one should know before choosing to stay here:
1) We came in April when it was chilly, the house was freezing,in-spite the fact that we turned on the heat. The house has a terra-cotta flooring and there are no rugs anywhere, we had two crawling babies with us so we put a blanket on the floor but we were scolded by the hosts who took it away. If you come with kids you should know this house is NOT child proof (2steep steps between each room, sharp corners everywhere etc')
2)The house is well equipped with everything you need to cook with, BUT it is literarily empty of supplies (including salt, sugar, garbage bags, cleaning supplies,& toilet paper) so be prepared to bring EVERYTHING with you.
The pictures are somewhat deceiving, there isn't really a living room just one small couch facing the not-working-TV… so if you are picturing a family seating together in the evening after long trips-- don't.
3) THERE IS NO INTERNET- in spite of what is advertised. The hosts have a portable "net-stick" which is supposedly self installed -however it did not work on any of our computers, which made planing our days much more difficult… plus we would have come more prepared with lot's of books if we would have known.
4) The hosts are a bit "too" involved in their guests life in the house. They made sure to let us know each time when we did something wrong, like leaving a small light on during the night so the kids can go to the bathroom if they get up (the host came the next morning asking us to shut all lights at night since electricity is expensive). The next day he came again telling us we forgot the light outside and went inside the house to shut it off/ and that we should park the car facing the other way/ or close all the shades/ or do laundry only in the day/ or not place anything on the table without a protecting cloth/ or grab a new towel from the closet without asking/ etc'… it is all ok that each house has its' rules but make a list in advance and send it to your guests before their arrival, and if they DO one wrong--suck it (or charge in the first place 10 euro more per week if you know that's the case). We always felt they were looking at what we were doing… hardly a comfy feeling for a vacation.
*also good to know-- it is kind of far from everything... (1h+ at least to any attraction).

Owner's Response: We were very surprised by this review, after having read other of a different tone,
1 ) The house is equipped with GPL gas heating plates in all the rooms and gives the ability to turn on and off according to your needs . We had guests in December and February, when the temperatures are much more rigid and we had no complaints whatsoever .
Houses to rent must necessarily also have carpets ? !
You put a blanket from the bed on the floor , which generally also use other guests , where 8 people were walking regularly , and for hygiene reasons we politely asked to use two large pool towels supplied by us.
We have always had groups with children of all ages who have never complained , edges are those of a normal house , how can it be that of the table.
There are two normal steps from the dining room to the kitchen and a step that divides the kitchen from the sleeping area .
2) We provide all our guests all the linens , sheets, towels ( we change mid-week ) , tablecloths ,towels for the pool and 1 roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.
We are not aware that similar structures gives need for cooking or detergents .
There is a living room of 24 sqm with a large three seater sofa, a table for 8 people and a working TV with satellite dish. Maybe you have not been able to make it work but you have not even asked for our help .
3 ) Unfortunately, our rural area does not have ADSL coverage . We provide a key that is the only way to connect to the internet and our guests have safely used .
4) We try to be discreet and helpful and we try to make our guests can enjoy their holidays in the best way . After casually saw that ALL the lights of the whole house have been left on ALL night , we politely asked to put attention .
In addition, being sensitive to the environment we have assembled a photovoltaic system , therefore we ask our guests IN THE LIMIT AS POSSIBLE to use washing machine and dishwasher during daylight hours .
We recommend (when there are more car ) to park in a certain way to make it easier maneuvering and recommend that you close the shutters for your further security , although the area is quiet .
Also there seems not polite to take the linen from private wardrobe without asking, when we say that we are at your complete disposal for any kind of change .
As far distances just go to the website and check , all distances are specified in Km and time. People usually book our property also for its proximity to many attractions.

Kleines Paradies am Tiber!

  • 5 of 5
Einfach zum wohlfühlen! Wir hatten das Nebengebäude ganz für uns und genossen diesen wunderbaren ruhigen Platz direkt über dem Tiber. Die Atmosphäre in den alten Mauern ist etwas Besonderes! Die Räume sind geschmackvoll eingerichtet und auch im Sommer schön kühl. In der Küche gibt es sogar eine Geschirrspülmaschine!
Die Hausherren, Alessandro und Maurizia sind sehr lieb und immer anprechbar (mehrsprachig! Alex kann hervorragend Deutsch!!).
Sie haben uns sogar spontan zum Grillen eingeladen! Alles ist sehr sauber, auch der Pool zum Abkühlen - wunderbar!
In der näheren Umgebung gibt es viele mittelalterliche Dörfer und natürlich Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, den Trasimenischen See....
Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder! Danke!! Karin aus München

Perfect!

We visited La Barca in July 2012!
Very warm welcome & interesting information received from Alex for visiting the region. Very good price/quality!
Also our dog loved it because of the river that is crossing the garden!
