This lovely villa consists of 4 BEDROOMS, all with PRIVATE BATHROOMS of which there are 4.
The bedrooms are all very spacious with the two upstairs bedrooms being master bedrooms with double beds. One of the master bedrooms on the upper floor has it's own private terrace overlooking the splendid Umbrian countryside with mountain views in the background. The second upstairs master is really a suite with doors that lead into a separate dressing area, bathroom with tub and bedroom.
You enter the property via a wonderful covered terrace which is very large and acts as an outdoor lounge area with sofa and comfortable seating providing the perfect spot to sit and relax during the day as it is covered and hence shaded or to take in the stunning views with a glass of wine or two in the evening.
From the terrace large doors lead into the lovely bright sitting room with TV, DVD player and DVD library and a wood burner for the cooler months of the year. The sitting room is in what used to be a tobacco tower and therefore has very high ceilings lending this space a very airy and bright feeling.
From the upstairs sitting room doors lead into the upstairs master bedrooms and bathrooms. One of the master bedrooms has its own private terrace from which to enjoy the amazing views and its own bathroom with shower. Another set of doors lead into the second master bedroom suite, comprising of dressing area, bathroom and very spacious bedroom.
From the upstairs sitting room steps lead down to the lower floor where you will find two further bedrooms each with two single beds (in one of the rooms the beds can be made into a double bed). These rooms have very large doors with lockable shutters. There are also two lovely bathrooms on this floor so that each bedroom has its own bathroom.
Also situated on the lower floor is the modern kitchen with table and chairs seating 8 and a second smaller sitting area with sofa and armchairs. Doors lead outside onto a large area, terrace for outside dining with sunshade, barbecue and again with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.
The property has been restored (former tobacco tower) to a high standard throughout. Originally an agricultural building, we have taken great care in restoring the villa to have all modern comforts and yet retaining the original feeling of the place. We have used local workmanship throughout using the traditional chestnut beams and tiled ceilings and the floors are all terracotta tiles which keep the floors nice and cool in the hot summer months. We have used good quality sanitary wear and tiles in all 4 bathrooms so that each bedroom has a lovely bathroom.
The property has a very large 16x6m saline pool (almost no chlorine) situated on a terrace one level below the house. We have now also added pool heating and thereby extending the season and taking the edge off once the nights start to be cooler in the shoulder months.
There are plenty of sunbeds for those of you who want to take in the sun, however, there is also plenty of natural shading provided by trees and shrubs for those of you who prefer to sit in the shade. On one side of the pool we have planted a row with lavender stretching the entire length of the pool and on the other sides of the pool are planted a variety of shrubs including rosemary, thyme and sage which guests are very welcome to pick and use in cooking. We have also planted a variety of roses to add some colour and there is a fig tree just outside of the kitchen area where you are welcome to pick the fruit when ripe.
The property is set in beautiful tranquil countryside however, should you wish to take a stroll into the village maybe for a glass of Prosecco or some ice cream then you can walk it in around 15mins.
The property is ideal for friends and families sharing also because of the layout as the two floors are very separate and hence should part of the family have young children, perhaps on the lower floor, they will not disturb those that may be resting on the upper floor. The villa is ideal for those that wish to spend time together, however, also have some privacy at times.
Villa Quercia is ideal for those wanting to relax by the pool as well as for those of you who want to take in the sights as within 30mins to 1 hr you can visit any number of wonderful places such as Cortona, Citta' di Castello, Montone, Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia, Arezzo and many more.
And should you wish to take a break from the pool and the views there is a ping pong table situated in the portico where you can play as often as you wish.
Last but not least for those of you who need to be able to check emails and perhaps do a bit of work there is WiFi connection at the property that we do not charge for separately.
And for those of you who wish to go walking, cycling, canoeing (very good club in Cita' di Castello), play some tennis, golfing, sailing on lake Trasimeno, cooking lessons or take in a winery tour and more all of this can be arranged in the area.
Villa Quercia provides the perfect location for a wonderful and very special holiday.
