Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Swimming pool
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car essential
  • No pets allowed

A beautiful apartment for two persons created on the second floor of our main house Felcino Bianco which overlooks a wooded valley with a few small farms on the Tuscan-Umbrian border (we stand in Toscana and we look into Umbria). We restored Felcino Bianco over some five years starting in 2003 using an engineer and quality artisans to recreate a large "casa padronale" or manor house. The apartment consists of a large double bedroom with antique four-poster bed, clothes chest and dressing-table, its own en-suite bathroom with shower, bath, bidet and lavatory, a sitting-room also with antique furniture and an open fireplace (not in use!) and a kitchen /dining-room fully equipped with table, chairs, dresser, gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer - all quality items. The bedroom has a polished parquet floor and all windows can be opened but have fine netting to keep out flying creatures. The apartment has its own entrance from a staircase outside an a small terrace on which a table and two chairs will fit. Washing-machines are available in our part of the house upon request. The property sits on a mountainside with woodland and grassland terraces and olive groves. You are free to walk over the 70 kilometres of our land and on the various tracks and walkways between terraces. We recommend a hire car for visiting around as we are quite rural - plenty of room to park, Florence, Arezzo, Siena, Perugia and Gubbio all worth visiting and Rome accessible by fast train. Our large swimming-pool is at your disposal close by.

The Tuscany region

We are right on the border between Tuscany and Umbria in a region that is typically woodland, olive groves - we have wonderful Tuscan olive oil - and small farms. We are some 500 metres above sea level making life not excessively hot in midsummer, with the swimming-pool at hand. Both Florence and Perugia are within reasonable distance, also the cities of Siena and Arezzo. Gubbio and Deruta (ceramics manufacture) are also close as is Assisi and a small hire car will get you to all these places. Trains are also frequent from Arezzo. Anghiari with its famous battle in the 16th century and Sansepolcro (the new Jerusalem) are famous mediaeval towns just a few kilometres away. This part of Central Italy is so rich in terms of culture, art, and history as well as classical Italian "gastronomia". This is one of the reasons we have chosen to live here and hold our annual chamber music festival

You can choose between absolute tranquillity and the peace and quiet of woodland walks or go out to see it all just as you prefer.
