Set on the green and wooded slopes of Monte Lovesco and guarded by two stone dragons at the gate, this stunning medieval property has breathtaking views of the Upper Tiber Valley and the mountains surrounding the towns of Umbertide to the West and Gubbio to the East.

Two properties each with capacity for 4 people – these units may be rented separately or together for larger groups.

Above the house is a secluded outdoor swimming pool with under-water lighting and jets, surrounded by irrigated grass, offering almost total seclusion with patio area, tables and umbrellas.

The whole property has WIFI broadband internet access, including La Capanna, La Cantina, the swimming pool and the garden.

The English owners live on site in the main house and care for a large array of animals including cats, dogs, ducks, an owl and even hedgehogs. Whilst the 2 rental properties are separate from the main house, guests may get the occasional visit from one of the animals and they will be offered fresh eggs from the chickens.

This is a wonderful property for animal-loving guests and any children will love having such an array of animals to visit.

The owners are very happy to help you with any questions you have about the property and local area and can arrange discounted car hire through a local company. Each rental is provided with a welcome pack of wine, water, soft drinks, milk, tea and coffee to allow guests to relax immediately they arrive.

The nearest towns are Umbertide and Gubbio, which offer all general services and are excellent cultural and historic centres for guests' requirements. There are many good restaurants in the area, offering a wide range of delicious and authentic Italian country cuisine at reasonable prices.

La Capanna (sleeps 4)

is a cottage set across a small courtyard from the main house. It is completely self-contained and has its own entrance, giving total privacy. There is a fabulous terrace with table and chairs, where guests can sit and enjoy outdoor dining with amazing views across the valley.

The double doors entrance leads directly into the living room, which has comfortable chairs, a sofa and a dining table seating 4. This room has a lovely open fire as its focal point with TV and DVD player.

Leading from the sitting room are 2 double bedrooms, one of which can be set up with 2 single beds if required. The separate bathroom is fully tiled, with a shower, WC, bidet and washbasin.

The newly refurbished kitchen has a fridge, cooker, microwave, juicer and toaster with plenty of work and storage space.

This property is fully central heated making it suitable for use all year round.

There is a washing machine in a separate building, which is provided for the exclusive use of the guests. The walled patio with its brick barbeque is totally isolated from the main house and courtyard.

La Cantina (sleeps 4)

is a spacious apartment which occupies the ground floor of the main house. The furnishings are of a high quality and reflect the owners' English origins and also their Italian home, while the oak beams and terracotta floors reflect the history of the building.

The apartment has its own entrance beneath a wisteria-clad pergola offering plenty of shaded seating with a small patio and a brick built barbeque. The views from this patio are stunning and you will be happy to spend many hours just relaxing with a cool drink or a glass of local wine, looking out over the hills.

The entrance door leads into a large kitchen / dining area, fully equipped with fridge, cooker, toaster, juicer and plenty of cooking utensils, storage and workspace. The antique oak dining table has ample seating space for 8 people or more.

Adjacent and to the left of the kitchen is a large living room with sofa, easy chairs, antique furniture and a cosy wood-burning stove, making it suitable for use all year round. There is satellite television and dvd player.

There are 2 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, one of which can be set up with twin beds. There is room for an additional single bed if required.

The whole property is private and separate from La Capanna and the owners' accommodation, and there is shared use of the laundry facilities with La Capanna only. 1. Prices are inclusive of all local taxes. 2. An initial security deposit of €150 is required on check in, which is fully refundable on final inspection of the cottage. 3.
