Overview

Monte Santa Maria Tiberina Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Umbria - Peaceful, Private but Readily Accessible to Local Facilities, Restaurants and Cultural Highlights

Casale Sole Set in 8 hectares of South facing hillside provides modern comfort in a rural setting private yet not remote.

There’s a double suite on the ground floor, a sitting room and the spacious family kitchen opening onto a large covered terrace area. Accessed by a central staircase, the first floor provides a superb double bedroom with dressing room and bathroom, a library and magnificent drawing room. There are 2 further bedrooms on the second floor, 1 with a large bathroom and dressing room, 1 with an en-suite shower. With its vines, olives, meadows and woodland, the property provides space and scope for active children or country-minded adults. The large pool catches the sun all day. The house is just 2 minutes from the village, with a general store, pharmacy and cashpoint, and a pizza restaurant which – of course – will do takeaways. The vibrant walled town of Citta di Castello is just 10 minutes away, with shops, restaurants, a constant calendar of events and a brilliant Italian buzz.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Mrs Meg Taylor

Hello,

We are two ageing lawyers who fell in love with Umbria many years ago. 13 years ago a small inheritance enabled us to take the plunge and buy a traditional farmhouse encased in concrete which over the years we have lovingly restored.

We believe we have created a warm, welcoming, stylish and functioning home; we hope you agree.

Monte Santa Maria, Citta di Castello and the surrounding countryside are in a truly special part of the world.

Oh yes, we are aware that online booking entails mutual trust; we are are always available to answer any queries you may have about us, the house and Umbria.

Kind regards,

Meg

Mrs Meg Taylor purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Stunning house!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely stunning! We have just returned from a blissful fortnight at Casale Sole and can honestly say there was nothing we would change. The house is very well equipped and finished to a high standard particularly the beautiful kitchen which led out on to a lovely shaded loggia where we enjoyed numerous home cooked meals and tasty take away pizza from the local pizzeria in Gioello. Nearby San Secondo has a wonderful patisserie with exceptional croissant and cakes that provided for delicious breakfasts as the sun gradually warmed us. The house is really well situated for visiting some beautiful hilltop towns and villages, Montone being one of them.

There were 8 of us at the house plus a 1 year old. Arranged over 3 floors there was plenty of space for everyone. Outside, the pool was lovely and great for the younger members of the party.

Overall, I would certainly recommend this property to anyone after a really special break!

Special interest holidays:

Our ever helpfull management can provide italian cookery courses [in or out of the kitchen] and the ever popular truffle hunting [have a go under the oaks] and wine tours and tasting. This is great walking (maps in the house) and touring countryside. If you have a special interest be it cycling, bikes can be hired, riding, walking, botany or fine arts we can arrange a customised itinery with full back up. The village has some tennis courts and you can kayak on the Tiber

Travel:

35 minutes from Perugia airport for Stansted. Other accessable airports are Pisa Rome Rimini Ancona Florence and Bologna. The regional railway is just 4 miles away. Regardless you'll need a car.

Distances:

The house is 10 minutes from the village if you are walking, [2 by car] with it's basic general store, bar and pharmacy, Above the valley sits the Etruscan hill town of MSM Tiberina.

The vibrant walled town of Citta di Castello is less than 15 minutes away, with shops, restaurants, a constant calendar of events and a brilliant Italian buzz. Plus all the cultural treasures of Umbria & Tuscany are on the (well almost) doorstep.

Further Details:

On the Tiber, Citta di Castello is a Roman/Medieval walled city, as well as a thriving modern community where, if you want a stay-at-home holiday there's everything to sustain your retreat. If you want to explore the area, etruscan, roman, medieval and boroque, fauna & flora then we are less than an hours drive from Assisi Gubbio Perugia Arezzo San Sepulcro Cortona, Monterchi is just up the road on the Piero della Francesca route. Performances in the world's smallest opera house in Umbertide. Browsing antiques and majollica in Deruta Cortona but in particular the justifiably famous Arezzo antique market. Never forget Lake Trasimeno [of Hannibal fame] with it's ferries. Each year we update our information sheet with details of things to do, where to go, where to shop etc.
