About the property

Casa degli Ulivi Villa, peaceful hillside location large private grounds, 5 mins from village

Casa degli Ulivi is a large stone farmhouse, converted 12 years ago to modern standards. The house is situated on the Tuscany-Umbria border and looks over the much sought after Niccone Valley over which it has unrivaled views. It is at the end of a quiet gravel road which is lined with the classic Italian cypress trees and passes the ancient castle of Lisciano Niccone. The house and its large grounds are completely private and not overlooked but within a few minutes of 2 lively villages with shops, restaurants, pizzerias,gelaterias and summer festas. The lawn at the front of the house is surrounded by large trees, pear, horse chestnut and olive so there is always some shade. There is ample parking space. Free wifi.

The house has 5 bedrooms; 3 double and 2 bedrooms with 2 and 3 single beds between them. The house sleeps 11 comfortably, cots can be provided for 2 babies with prior arrangement. Downstairs is a dining room opening onto the front lawn and connected to the well-equipped kitchen. The kitchen also opens onto the lawned area in front of the house where there are shady areas provided by the large chestnut, pear and olive trees and furniture for outside dining. Also on the ground floor are 2 bedrooms - one twin and one double and a bathroom with bath, shower, WC and basin. Wheelchair access is possible with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and the kitchen on a level with access onto the parking area and garden. Stairs from the dining room lead up to the sitting room with 3 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms leading off it. The sitting room opens onto a small loggia with steps down to the lawn.

The pool is on an upper terrace among the ancient olive trees which stretch up to Lisciano Niccone castle. The pool measures 12x6m and has a deep end to 2.2m. It has a shady pergola to one end and quality sun-loungers with head shades. The views are all on sides; beautiful and extensive.

Casa degli Ulivi is rented exclusively by Gorgacce Rentals, renting houses since 1993.

About Emma Cordingley

I am the booking agent for Casa degli Ulivi, my name is Emma and I live in the Niccone Valley, near Casa degli Ulivi, with my husband, two daughters and our cat and dog. We run a small rentals agency called Gorgacce Rentals, named after the first house my parents owned here which they bought in the 1980's. In those days before the internet they were very successful at renting their house to holiday-makers and their neighbours asked if they could rent their houses too and from this grew our rentals agency. Seeking a better life Martin and I moved here in 1999 and have taken over most of the running of the rental business although my mum still keeps the accounts! Friends of ours from England who visited us in our early years here, fell in love with the area and bought and restored Casa degli Ulivi, unfortunately due to work and family commitments they are not able to visit as often as they would like but have rented through us successfully for many years. We love being at Casa degli Ulivi, the wonderful views and feeling of space are inspiring and restful.

Emma Cordingley purchased this villa in 2002
