Ca d Bracco is a charming stone farmhouse with many original features and modern comforts. It is situated on a hillside in the sought-after area of the Niccone Valley which passes through Tuscany and Umbria. Two nearby villages are a few minutes by car; with restaurants, a shop and a vineyard. An excellent local restaurant can be walked to on quiet country lanes and paths through fields.
The house has chestnut ceiling beams and terracotta floors throughout, the kitchen has the original barrel vaulted ceiling.
There are five bedrooms; 3 doubles and 2 with twin single beds. 2 ensuite bathrooms and 2 family shower rooms. Free wifi throughout. From spring 2018 the upstairs rooms will have air-conditioning, as will the open plan living area; some air-conditioning is free an excess is metered and will be paid for in addition to rental.
The pool is fenced, gated and heated by solar panels, it has a thermal cover and is one of the warmest pools in central Italy with the longest usable season! It is salt-chlorinated. There are shady pergolas by the pool, a table and chairs and sunbeds. Looking over the garden is a large shady terrace with table for 14. Barbecue and pizza oven. Maid service, cook and baby-sitters extra.
We the owners live in an adjacent but completely separate apartment with its own entrance and gardens, the pool and garden are exclusively for guests, we won't bother you at all, but we are here if needed. We are Martin and Emma with our 2 daughters who are largely grown up and may or may not be in residence. We also have a friendly dog who can be kept away from you if preferred and we have an old deaf cat who makes her own rules.
Ca di Bracco is rented exclusively by Gorgacce Rentals, renting houses since 1993.
