The Umbria region
The house is at the end of a 'white' gravel road which leads originally to the chapel which forms part of the property. The closest village is Morra, the closest small town is Trestina, with medieval Citta di Castello, Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, Arezzo and Perugia within easy access. Rome and Florence are both about 2 hours driving away.
Citta Di Castello
The house is perfect for sightseeing trips to both Tuscany and Umbria's best known beauty and artistic towns, Siena, Cortona, Assisi, Gubbio, Arezzo and Perugia, as well as the medieval towns of San Sepolchro, Citta di Castello, Monte Santa Maria, and Montone. The central location of the house although in a completely rural situation, and its proximity to some of Italy's greatest towns and artistic treasures, Assisi, Gubbio, Cortona, Arezzo and Siena, makes it the perfect place for a holiday .
