3-Bed farmhouse, pool, easy access to Arrezzo, Gubbio, Cortona, Assis
We visited Italy in 2014 and, like so many before us, fell in love with its charms. The culture, the history, the nature, the care that is taken over food and wine and the generosity of spirit of the people that we've met, particularly in the region where the house is. We started looking for a house to provide a base nearer to family in England and be a contrast to the busy lives we lead working half way around the world in Asia. On our first day of house hunting we fell in love with Casa Battistacci and by the end of the year, we had the keys! There is something unique and special that beguiles us into a sense of calm whenever we stay at the house. There is simply not enough time to enjoy the pleasures of this area and we hope that you too have a memorable and heartfelt stay.

Really stylishly furnished farmhouse
A home-from-home, Battistacci is a beautiful farmhouse, furnished with great taste, and very well equipped. The house has all the special touches of being someone's home. All requests / issues were dealt with very promptly, and the owners were lovely to deal with. House is in a lovely spot, nestled amids fields and woods. Lovely pool in quite a private space. Take note there is no internal staircase.
Stunningly beautiful setting, matched only by the amazing home. The villa is incredible -- it combines rustic and modern elements perfectly. It's situated on acres of rolling hills, meadows, forests and farm fields. The vista from the back porch is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. And we loved the pool -- it saved us from the hot Umbrian summer.
