Villa in San Giustino, Tuscany/Umbria Border, Italy - Settled In A Very Quiet Position, Perched On A Hill, But Only 2 Minutes Drive From The Next Village
The villa has a privileged position standing proud above the Upper Tiber Valley, Sansepolcro, San Giustino, Anghiari, Citerna, Città di Castello.
A well-planned restoration has transformed the mainhouse, the former tobacco drying house and the barn in a charming residence with antique terracotta floors and beamed ceilings. The house is ideal for large families or group of friends and offer a lot of privacy. The sleeping rooms are all spacious, cosy and comfortable. Bathrooms are nice and have all hairdryers.
In the ground floor where the whole group can gather together there is a big living room which opens onto the large stylish fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The kitchen with patio doors leads out to a spacious summer dining pergola covered with wines in the garden. There you can enjoy your barbeque watching the stunning sunset drinking some delicious Italian wine.
The romantic pool has been built inside an antique Roman "vasca" from the 19 century to keep the original structure, unique in its kind. It is surrounded by big gardens with summer beds, olive trees, lavender, roses and overlooks the Tuscan and Umbrian hills. Two beautiful summer pergolas with BBQ offer each place to eat for 10. There are many terraces at different levels, some shaded and others in the full sun. Although nestling in the hills, the property is quiet and secluded but is very conveniently located, 3 minutes drive to the village of Sansepolcro. Its position on the Tuscan/Umbrian border makes this place a perfect base for touring Tuscany, Umbria and The Marche.

Stunning property with amazing views
We had a wonderful week in Casa Spertaglia - the house and gardens were simply beautiful, and equipped with more than we needed. The view over the valley was stunning. Karin was a great host - we were greeted our 1st night with prosecco and home made antipasto and her tips for local places to visit was very useful. The trip to the olive oil mill was also a highlight. Our teenagers enjoyed the pool and visits to the local night markets. All in all it was everything we had hoped for from our 1st holiday to Italy and more. Highly recommended.
Thanks for the wonderful words. Loved your family and well educated kids...hopefully you will come back one day! Karin
