Casa degli Ulivi is high above the Niccone Valley, a beautiful green valley that runs between Tuscany and Umbria, Casta degli Ulivi has views over both regions. It enjoys warm summers, hot for a few weeks at the end of July and brimming with wild-flowers in May and June. It is great place for walking, relaxing and visiting interesting, historic towns and villages. The Umbrian towns of Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Orvieto, Deuta, Citta di Castello are all nearby and worth visiting. The Tuscan towns of Cortona, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Pienza and Sansepulchro are all nearby, even Florence can be visited as a day trip, Rome too if you get up early!

"A really lovely place to be"

This lovely traditional house sits in it's own large garden which overlooks the village below and mountains in the distance. It is a private spot without feeling too isolated. The house is clean and well-maintained and the pool the perfect size. There are plenty of places to sit or lounge either inside the house, or in the garden or by the pool. I suspect it would be a great place to stay at any time of year.
