House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
We have just finished building and furnishing this modern 3 bed house in rural Umbria, rather a labour of love for us. Here you have space and tranquillity to relax. Enjoy sampling the locally produced food and wines. Take in the unspoilt views from every aspect of the house.
This fresh, modern, light and airy house provides ideal family accommodation. The large garden is simple for now, just laid to grass with some young hedging growing around the perimeter. There is however a really lovely covered terrace area from the kitchen with it's outdoor dining furniture for you to sit and dine, 'al fresco' whilst drinking in the views.
Our fantastic local contact Alessia will greet you and will be on hand should you need her during your stay. You can arrange with Alessia if you would like her to come and cook traditional Umbrian cuisine for you, using the most sought-after local ingredients.
Available locally: Coffee shops, bars, local supermarket, shops, bank, swimming baths.

The large garden is not yet established, just laid to grass with some young hedging growing around the perimeter, hence the low introductory rental rate to reflect this. There is however a really lovely covered terrace area from the kitchen with it's outdoor dining furniture for you to sit and dine, 'al fresco' whilst drinking in the views.
The Umbria region
An extensive guide to local activities including the Terni Waterfalls is provided for our guests both beforehand and in the guest information book in the house.
Umbria is considered "the heart of Italy" and is a land of over one hundred medieval towns. The township of Giove is one of these. Situated above the A-1 Autostrada, which serves as the main artery between Rome and Florence, this restored landmark sits waiting to host its visitors in medieval atmosphere and modern luxury.
With a train station at the bottom of the hill in the city of Attligliano, all destinations are easily accessible. The fantastic cities of Orvieto, Spoleto, Perugia, as well as the ceramic capitol, Deruta and the treasures of Rome and Florence are all close enough for day adventures. If you prefer to explore closer to home, the famous Monster Park at Bomarzo and the hidden medieval hilltop metropolis of Amelia are a stone's throw away.
We love the nature, antiques, historic centres and culture that surround our second home. This region is less touristy than Tuscany and offers an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape as well as providing a convenient base to explore. Visits to the remote medieval hill towns scattered throughout the region will take you off the beaten track.
The region has a wide range of cultural events and festivals. The local cuisine is a must for food-lovers, with a diverse array of fine local ingredients and wines to try.
The town has all that you will need including bank, supermarkets, bars, bakers, coffee shops and friendly locals.
The village, located on the surface of a hill that slopes towards the river Tiber boasts quaint medieval cobbled streets, beautiful architecture including that of the castle. An extensive guide to local activities including the Terni Waterfalls is provided for our guests both beforehand and in the guest information book in the house.
