An imposing, stone built farmhouse, the villa is situated in a peaceful location near the medieval village of Montone in Umbria, the "Green Heart of Italy". It has recently been renovated. Throughout the property the work has been carried out with great taste and attention to detail. The house retains all its original features which, combined with modern amenities, creates an extremely comfortable home.
Caicresce is superb. We were a group of three families with young children spending a week there in early July. The house is beautifully appointed inside and the grounds are spacious. It's a beautiful area to go out and explore, so many wonderful hilltop villages, or just admire the view from the pool lounge chair! We visited the best ice-cream parlour in Italy too (several times!)

We had a great family holiday here and thought that the house was so well equipped. The views were fabulous, the beds comfortable and the sun shone! Couldn't have asked for anything more! Local restaurants were all excellent - thanks for all of your recommendations. We will definitely be back.

Montone, which in Italian means Aries or the Ram is a small medieval village unchanged throughout the centuries and beautifully preserved. It is surrounded by sturdy walls and has a network of narrow streets, alleys and stairways. Its origins date back to the 10th century and in recent years the traditions of the medieval period have been brought back to life during re-enactments of historical events. There is a selection of small local shops in Montone. A weekly market is held in Umbertide every Wednesday morning. Produce includes fresh fruits, vegetables, hams, fish, cheeses and other local specialities. In addition there are several large supermarkets, COOP being the best and nearby is a fabulous fresh pasta shop and Rosticceria. There are many fine local restaurants to enjoy. Montone
