LUXURY 3-BEDROOM APARTMENT WITH TERRACE IN CITTÀ DI CASTELLO, UMBRIA

Citta di Castello Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully decorated 2nd-floor property in walled historic centre, sleeps 6

This lovingly restored 3-BR apartment in the historic of the Umbrian town of Città di Castello offers all the quality, comfort and facilities of a real home and is ideally located for touring central Italy. The property is on two floors. On the lower level, the entrance hall opens into a spacious living room, while French windows lead from the large independent kitchen and dining area onto a small terrace with a table for al fresco breakfasts. The master bedroom and main bathroom are on this floor. Upstairs, in converted attic space, is a small bathroom and two bedrooms - one with two single beds and one with a comfortable double sofa bed. This room, which can be used as a study, leads out through large glass windows onto a lovely large terrace with views over old-town roof tops to the town's spectacular round tower and to the hills beyond the ancient city walls. Città di Castello is a relaxed Italian town with much to see, great restaurants and surrounded by fabulous countryside.

High-quality decoration, furnishing and equipment: The apartment is beautifully and creatively decorated, and furnished with high-quality pieces collected during our travels in Asia and Italy. The space is full of character, retaining a variety of exceptional old floors, from terracotta tiles to intricately decorated stonework. The old wooden beams remain in place, along with original doors and other fixtures.

- The living room has a large comfortable sofa and two lovely old Chinese rocking chairs, as well as a 32' flat-screen TV, a DVD player, a HiFi, and a good selection of CDs, DVDs and books.

- The kitchen is equipped with an oven and four gas rings, along with a dishwasher and washing machine. Here you will find everything you need for cooking, serving and eating civilized meals at home.

Central, quiet location: The apartment is both very central and very quiet - just two minutes walk from the main square of Città di Castello old town in a little cobbled side street full of colourful geraniums. The terrace on the other side of the building overlooks some lovely leafy gardens, heightening this down town apartment's feeling of peace and tranquillity.

In any case, Città di Castello is hardly a noisy place, but rather a quiet, authentic rural Italian town where you can escape the tourist trail and enjoy the slow pace of life with lazy breakfasts and long lunches in the many restaurants serving fresh, delicious Umbrian food.

Città di Castello is a town with a deep sense of culture, from its refined architecture, its fine municipal art gallery and its beautiful, active 17th-century theatre. There is a steady stream of cultural events throughout the year, such as the Festival delle Nazione. The town is also a good base for the internationally acclaimed Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia every July.

Other FAQs: - Parking in the old town centre is restricted to residents, but you can drive you car to just underneath the apartment to unload bags, before moving the care to a free, safe car park outside the old town walls, a few minutes walk from the property.

- The apartment is 10 minutes walk from the train station and two minutes walk from the bus station. Trains go north to Sansepolcro and south as far as Perugia, where the local line connects with the national network.

- There is an Avis car rental office in town, 10 minutes walk from the apartment.

- A number of international airports are within striking distance of Città di Castello. The nearest is Umbria International Airport at Perugia, which offers free parking, twice-daily flights to Milan and five weekly Ryan Air flights to Stansted Airport in the UK. It is a short taxi ride from the airport to Ponte San Giovanni train station, which links to Città di Castello. Other useful airports include Ancona, Rimini, Pisa, Rome and Bologna.

Comfortable townhouse in historic centre

  • Submitted: Nov 20, 2011
  • Stayed: Aug 2011
It was exactly as we expected - a town house in a back street near the town centre with plenty of room and well equipped. Some points in no particular order:
Comfortable beds.
Large Sitting room
Wi fi, Hi fi ,TV all works and easy to use. Pleant of CDs and English books for all tastes
5 mins to supermarket. Loads of little shops as well
Small covered market, fishmonger,butcher
Well equipped Kitchen Gas/Electric. Everything works. Plenty of crockery,pots and pans.
Car parking very tricky outside the house but there is a free public carpark outside the city walls about 10 minute walk.
No aircon and it was 30+ outside but the stone floors and thick walls mean its quite cool inside.
Two flights of stairs - so not for those with dodgy knees
Large rooftop balcony with lovely view for the sundowners
Easy access to lots of sights - Lake Trasimeno, Hill villages for local interest, Perugia, Arezzo for art and culture all 30-60 minutes drive.
About 30 mins from Perugia airport. Ryanair flight lets you arrive mid afternoon well in time to stock up on basics although some in place already
We had a wonderful time.
Highly recommended for 55+.

Lovely apartment in a lovely town!

I stayed here with a group of friends in July and it was lovely! The apartment is really well kept and spacious with a great roof terrace. It was great to stay in an apartment as the Italian's would rather than a purpose built villa! Citta di Castello is a fantastic town and a great base - the restaurants and cafes start a stones throw from the house but you still feel out of the way of it all. Myself and my friends all want to go back at some point and I'd also like to visit again with my husband and two children. Highly recommend it!

Great Apartment in historic centre.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 18, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We had a perfect vacation in Citta di Castello. The apartment was very well equipped and kept everything that was promised on the website. The terrace has amazing views over the hills and the countryside.
Upon arrival we were met by Tiffany who provided us with everything we needed to know about the city and the surroundings, and gave an altogether excellent service.
Citta di Castello is full of nice restaurants and small shops, so one can easily use a day or two here, and when you want to explore some more of Umbria or Tuscany the city is within easy driving range of Arezzo, Perugia and Spoleto among others.
We would definately recommend this to other travelers wishing to explore this part of Italy.

Car: not necessary

Città di Castello is a beautiful walled Umbrian town on the banks of River Tiber, near this central Italian region's borders with Tuscany and Le Marche. The cobbled streets of the historic centre are bright, open and full of charm, with a strong Renaissance influence from Florence softening the austerity of the town's medieval past. There is plenty to explore within Città di Castello, as well as many wonderful bars and restaurants in which to enjoy the slow pace of life sipping a glass of prosecco or savouring some delicious Umbrian flavours.

Città di Castello is ideally located for exploring some of central Italy's key sites by car, train or bus. Perugia, Florence, Assisi, Spello, Spoleto, Gubbio and Urbino are all easy day trips. It is an hour's drive to the beach or to our local ski station and 2.5 hours drive to Rome. The green, unspoiled countryside, surrounded by the Apennine mountains, is perfect for hiking, biking, horse riding, golf, canoeing and other outdoor activities.

Golf: Fattoria Caldese is a golf club and resort five minutes drive outside Città di Castello.

Ski: It is possible to ski at Monte Nerone, an 1,500m Apennine mountain about one hour's drive from Città di Castello. The mountain has one ski lift servicing five blue and red pistes as well as a convivial and well-run chalet with a bar and restaurant with good hearty food cooked fresh in the kitchen over an open fire by a group of local ladies. There is also a glowing stove and plenty of wicked mulled wine to be had at the bar. Monte Nerone may not be quite Cortina, but it makes for a fun day trip.

Skis can be hired at Scarselli Sport in Città di Castello, or Pupita Sport in Piobbico at the base of the mountain.
