Overview

Marsciano Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms apartment to sleep 4 to 5 in Sant'Apollinare, Perugia, Umbria

“It is difficult to explain what makes Monticchio different from the many other apartments that are available to rent in Umbria. What we are trying to create is a place where you feel relaxed and at home”.

This 17th century farm is being carefully restored, including the landscaping of its spacious grounds, in order to provide a unique holiday destination. There are two apartments to rent in one of the buildings; both are large units with private terraces. There is also a 20m x 5m pool shared between our guest and friends.

Details for Apartment 1 - 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 2 Bathrooms

The first apartment that we are presenting here is 135 square meter with a private terrace and can sleep 4/5 people. It is comfortably furnished and has a selection of books, games and a CD player with MP3 socket. There are two main bedrooms, the first one with an en-suite shower room and a second bedroom on the mezzanine

level beside the second bathroom. There is a dressing room that can be used as a third bedroom if necessary.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

About Andrew Fielder & Hugues Beranger

I originally trained as a furniture designer/maker and then studied art/architecture. Hugues is the linguist whose interests include cooking and history.

We should state that Monticchio is our permanent home and feel extremely lucky to live in such a wounderful place and enjoy sharing it with our guests.

Having bought the property and become involved in the local community we realise the responsibility we have taken on in restoring Monticchio. It will take many years to complete all the works but the friends we have made on this journey so far, prove that it is a worthwhile road to follow.

Also at Monticchio is: 3 cats Jasper, Sybille and Dora, plus Timo and Picco the two donkeys.

Peace and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and three children, ages 12, 10 and 7 spent the first week of November at this impeccably restored apartment, which really feels like a private house. Such attention to detail is shown throughout the entire property, both inside and out, absolutely beautiful. We were happy to find the pool still open even in November. Though the water was chilly at this time of year, the view and the gorgeous setting were perfect for lounging, reading and enjoying lunch outside in the sunshine. We ventured off to Assisi, Perugia and Spello for day trips, all easily reachable by car. Lovely wine tasting opportunities within minutes of the property. Hugues and Andrew are so genuinely kind and helpful. We really felt like we were staying with friends and so hope to return.

Ein kleines Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung liegt sehr idyllisch im Tal des Flusses Nestore und ist dadurch etwas schwieriger zu finden. Unser Navi kannte die Adresse nicht und so mussten wir beim ersten Mal etwas suchen. Dafür wurden wir bei unserer Ankunft gleich herzlich von den beiden Gastgebern Hugues und Andrew empfangen. Wir fanden die Wohnung sauber und gepflegt vor, sie ist bestens ausgestattet, es fehlte an nichts, selbst einen großen Korb mit Feuerholz für den Kamin gab es. Hugues und Andrew haben die Wohnung sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sie ist mindestens genauso schön wie auf den Bildern. Das Anwesen selbst und die direkte Umgebung bieten viele Möglichkeiten zum Abschalten, Wandern, Radfahren, Reiten, Schwimmen (der große Pool hat eine sagenhafte Aussicht, leider war es Anfang April noch etwas zu kalt zum Schwimmen). Dank der immer freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Gastgeber hat es nie an etwas gefehlt und wir haben die Zeit im Casale Monticchio sehr genossen. Auch unsere kleine Tochter fühlte sich auf dem Anwesen pudelwohl, besonders die beiden Esel und die drei Katzen hatten es ihr angetan.

Da wir das erste Mal in Umbrien waren, wollten wir aber auch unbedingt wenigstens einige der vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten ansehen, die in weniger als einer Autostunde Entfernung zu finden sind: Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Gubbio, Orvieto um nur die wichtigsten zu nennen. Und so war unser Aufenthalt viel zu schnell zu Ende. Wir werden noch lange an die wunderschöne Zeit in Monticchio zurückdenken.

Old farmhouse with new charme

  • 5 of 5

This old farmhause has two completely renovated appartments that are tastefully equipped with all you need. The area is very quiet and allows recreation in a harmonic landscape. The business belongs to Hugues and Andrew, who give a very warm and friendly welcome to their guests. It ist like having holiday with friends. You can reach a lot of interesting places in the surrounding area. But you can also do a short walk rund the house. It is great to sit on the terrass with a wonderful view to the valley. Surely one of the best places we ever had.

Gorgeous apartment and hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a fabulous 5 night stay in this gem of an apartment in Umbria. We rented the smaller of the 2 apartments on the site and it was our favorite of all of the places we stayed in during our 17 day trip to Italy. The apartment design is huge, open and dramatic in the coolest possible sense and there are multiple paintings/sculptures that I would have taken home to put in our house in a second! I like to cook and did so on several of the nights because the kitchen had been so thoughtfully appointed with everything I could have needed. When was the last time you stayed in a place with a salad spinner? Rolling pin? Espresso maker (with coffee left for us ...as well as a nice bottle of Prosecco chilling in the fridge)? Hugues and Andrew are hosts that truly care about providing a place that they would like to rent themselves and they have succeeded. The surrounding grounds, the pool, the area where they are located...all are just so lovely and the place is perfect for day trips to nearby towns in Tuscany and Umbria. We still miss Fanny, their very well-behaved and friendly boxer. Rent this place (except for when we want it next...)! You won't be sorry!

Außergewöhnlich

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Oktober 2015 mit Freunden 10 Tage hier verbracht und uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Das Ferienhaus ist sehr geräumig und individuell eingerichtet. Die etwas kühleren Abende haben wir vorm offenen Kamin genossen, die sonnigen Tage auf der Terrasse oder am schönen Pool. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und wir haben uns bestens betreut gefühlt. Das Feriendomizil ist etwas abgelegen, deshalb benötigt man ein Auto. Trotzdem sind alles bekannten Ausflugsziele sehr gut in Tagesausflügen zu erreichen. Perugia ist nur 20 Minuten entfern. Wir waren bereits zum zweiten Mal hier und können die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

Casale Monticchio is located in the middle of a valley surrounded by woods, fields and hills. We are on a Nature walk that follows the river Nestore and the woods around us. Sant’Apollinare, the hamlet got a 13 century Castle and a Monastery. Spina the nearby village is 3 km away where you will find a mini supermarket, a butcher, a bar, a bank and a pharmacist.

The farmhouse is a perfect gateway for Umbria and southern Tuscany as we are less than an hour away from some of Italy’s major sites such as Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Trasimeno Lake, Todi and Gubbio.
