Me and my family are living in Germany and In 2016 we decided to buy a property in Umbria. We immediately fell in love with this place, the nature around and the quietness and magical mood the property provides . The house was restored few years ago, but when I bought it I decided to make some renovation works to improve the internal areas and make it even more comfortable and cozy. We have two kids, 5 and 9 years old and we always have great fun, using the pool and experience the greenwood. The house is managed by a company who assists the guests with any kind of problems or needs, in a way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We purchased this cottage in 2016.
Martin purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Martin chose Umbertide
The property is located in the Niccone Valley, above 30 min away by car from Perugia as center of commerce and cultural objects. Also, the very famous town of Assisi is just 40 min away. The famous cities of Tuscany like Siena, Arezzo and Florence are within easy driving distance between one and two hours. Even Lake Trasimeno (with some sandy beaches) is only 35 minutes drive from the property. Umbria is a bit quieter than Tuscany and a bit rougher. If you are looking for a place where you can relax, enjoy the quietness and nature on the one hand but want to have the opportunity to reach cultural destinations very easily on the other hand, the Perugia Area is great for this.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is a family and friendly home, in a safe and paradise-like seclusion area in the middle of the nature where you are all by yourself in complete privacy. The house has sourranded by woodland but also provide in the same time a nice view towards the Niccone Valley. The pool is near the house and it has a big pergola providing shade. The are a plenty of room in the garden to play all sorts of games like soccer or Croquet. The architecture of the house is typical for the area and provides coziness.

Great to be back
We have been on holiday in this region for many years and always chosen a new place to stay. This year was the first time we went back to the same place having had a truly wonderful holiday here last year ... we were not disappointed and don’t think it will be our last time! Quarata di sotto is a magical location for those looking to escape everything and spend time is a truly peaceful location surrounded by nature. The property and pool are of a very high standard and the property manageress is responsive and helpful in case you need anything.
Amazing house, beautiful location, wonderful stay!
We were 5 friends spending a week at the house. The house is very well renovated, clean and has all the equipment you need. The outdoor area is amazing with a wonderful pool. The tranquility is amazing. It's a bit long drive on gravel road, however, for us to have it all to our selves was one of the best tings about the house. Tecla, The house keeper was extremely helpful and very kind. The communication was perfekt. She helped us find the house where she had put a basket of wine, bred eggs to us. By far the best service we have ever experienced. She also helped us arrange a local wine-tasting. All in all we simply loved the house and had an amazing holiday. We might very well come back soon.
Super hideaway in the Umbrian Woods
Beautifully restored house in the most peaceful of locations. An absolutely wonderful hideaway to relax and unwind. The quality of the house, pool and gardens were simply superb. We lived in Italy for 5 years (Florence) and have vacationed in and around this area for 10+ years. This is the best property we’ve stayed in over the years. It is remote (just what we wanted) with a long winding, dusty ‘strada bianca’ so may not be ideal for everyone but we loved it and are definitely considering returning.
Thank you so much for the great rewiew! Creating the best conditions for a pleasant and relaxing stay is what we like to do!you have been excellent guests that we can recommend and we will be very glad to have you like guests again at Quarata!
Holidays in a lovely Umbrian Country House
We spent a fantastic week in „Quarata di Sotto“, an absolutely beautiful domicile nestled in the idyllic countryside of Umbria.
The house has been restored and furnished with taste and combines historic authenticity with modern comfort.
Four bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms and a spacious living room make the house an ideal holiday place even for bin families. The kitchen is fully equipped .
There are two terraces, so you can choose whether to stay in the sun or the shade .
The path through the lavender beds leads to the refreshing pool with enough deck chairs for the family. And you will always find a place in the shade.
What we enjoyed most ,was the peace and quiet of the place, which soon made us feel relaxed and carefree. We listened to the sounds of nature and were aware of the various plants and animals around us.
If you like, you can visit the charming little towns and villages around and enjoy the Italian way of life, buy fresh regional products and explore the culture of Umbria.
„Quarata di sotto“is a perfect place for spending an unforgettable holiday.
See you again soon, „Quarata di Sotto“.
We stayed for one week and we loved it.
The weather beginning of Oktober was great, so we could use the pool and enjoyed the small villages arround and the country side.
The house was perfect. The owner has well renovated the place with lots of small little details. Everything you need for a great stay was there. Well equipt kitchen, even with two fridges and a new barbeque. The sleeping rooms with attached bathrooms were very clean and also well equipt. In the middle of our stay the house got cleaned and we all got new towles etc.
You can see that the owner and Tecla (the woman who is in charge) are more then interested that everything is perfect. They even look atfer the fire wood so that you always have enough wood for a nice fire in the evening. Also they provide you with lots of books and information about the area you are staying. In the house and around you have lots of space to hang out. As it is a little bit off the track, around 7 min. on grevel road, you enjoy nature.
Come and find out.
We will come back.
The property has new owners. They have put a lot of energy and passion into renovating and re-furbishing the house completey. We loved the style and the cosy atmosphere. Everything is clean and very well kept. Each sleeping room has a nice bathroom.
Especially we liked the place in front of the house next to the kitchen where we spent many hours listening to the impressive nature and relaxing.
The pool is a bit cool, but it we took it as refreshment as it was already quite warm in June.
We loved our stay there and will definitely come back.
The property is very close to the most famoust and beautiful place of Umbriaand Tuscany, like Perugia, Assisi Lago Trasimeno, Siena, Florence and Rome
