Tuscany/Umbria - luxury apartment.
Set on a hill with views over the lush Tuscan/Umbrian countryside, TORRE DE MONALDESCHI is a new re-creation of a medieval 'borgo' (hamlet). This private country estate and holiday resort has won the prestigious 'Best Development In Italy' award. This is a luxury ground-floor apartment with three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms, an open plan dining (for six), living/lounge area and fully fitted, modern kitchen, complete with dish washer.
The interior design is typically rustic with terracotta flooring and a log burning fireplace, but with contemporary furnishings. Two new, comfy leather sofas and tasteful occasional furniture make the lounge area both attractive and welcoming and the comfortable beds (king sized in the master bedroom, a double in the second bedroom and bunk beds in the smaller third bedroom - super for children) ensure that you sleep like a log at night. There are two contemporary, fully-fitted bathrooms, one with a spa bath; the other with a large shower cubicle. Quality fresh linen, towels etc are supplied for your arrival and the apartment will have been prepared and cleaned, ready to go. The apartment has air conditioning and central heating as well as a flat-panel TV and DVD and CD players.
The apartment boasts a large, south-facing patio across the whole width of the apartment with sun loungers and ample space for a relaxed breakfast and al fresco dining - idyllic! The rear terrace offers some shade and incorporates a utility area with a washing machine. A car is essential to get the best out of your holiday and there is ample parking space. There are two swimming pools on site, including a fabulous infinity pool with views over Umbria, and an excellent Lido at nearby Fabro

The Umbria region
Ficulle is an enchanting medieval village with several shops/restaurants/pizzerias etc.
Orvieto is a beautiful hilltop cathedral town with designer Italian shops and restaurants and plenty to explore. The city even carries on underground and has a rail station with easy routes to Rome, Florence and Siena - enjoy a full days sightseeing and be back in time for an al fresco dinner on the terrace overlooking the stunning Orvieto Valley. Take a trip to the lakes - Trasimeno and Bolsena are not far away. Here you can enjoy water sports/fishing etc. Treat yourself to a freshly caught fish lunch on the lake shores. Or how about a trip to Assisi to marvel at the fantastic Basilica of St Francis - an experience never to be forgotten. Or if it's peace and quiet you are after, what better than doing some shopping for delicious traditional organic foods and wine and just chill out with a romantic candle lit meal on the terrace.
TORRE DE MONALDESCHI is the ideal location for a holiday, either away from the crowds in the beautiful 'green heart of Italy' - the fabulous countryside and forested hills being a wonderful place to relax - or as the perfect central location from which to explore the world famous culture and architecture of Tuscany and Umbria. Wander the timeless streets in ancient hill top towns, seek out some of the local festivals that take place all year round or visit one of the local spa towns and spoil yourself with a relaxing spa in the lovely warm waters (just like Caesar used to do) or a soothing 'feel good' treatment. Sample the area's fantastic cuisine and taste the renowned Orvieto Classico wine. Or spread your wings a little further - Florence to the north and Rome to the south are both just an hour and a half away and other great cities and towns - Orvieto, Montepulciano, Assisi, Siena, Pisa and Civita, "the Dying City" - are all within reach from your centrally-located apartment.
