Farmhouse in Preggio, Umbria. Casa Castalda
A beautiful farmhouse overlooking two castles, with a spectacular infinity pool. Sleeps 10 (5 bedrooms).

Welcome to Casa Castalda, our villa in Italy. Perched in the hills on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, we have spent the last few years turning it into our dream house. On the outside it is a beautiful old farmhouse with unmatched views of Castle Reschio and the Niccone Valley. Inside, the house has an enormous open plan ground floor with a vast living room, hall, and snooker room. There are four bedrooms, each with a bathroom, a beautiful kitchen with a terrace, and a double height upstairs living room. Slightly down the hill from the main house is a converted tobacco tower with a large double-aspect bedroom, lounge with kitchen, and its own terrace with a boules court. The house sits in 5 hectares of gardens, criss-crossed with paths and dotted with pergolas, hammocks and places to relax. The infinity pool is above the house, and has an extraordinary view of two castles across the valley. We love the house, and we want others to enjoy it as much as we do.

Location Information: Casa Castalda is just inside Umbria, on the border with Tuscany. The house is situated half way down the Niccone Valley, which was described by the Sunday Telegraph as having 'more beauty per square mile than almost any other part of Europe'. Exploring from Castalda is easy. You can drive in any direction and you are guaranteed to discover a stunning village or town. The medieval hilltop village of Preggio is only five minutes away by car, while the nearest town, Umbertide, is a fifteen minute drive. Citta di Castello is half an hour's drive from the house, and Perugia, Cortona and Siena can all be reached inside an hour. We can drive to the shore of Lake Trasimeno in forty minutes, Florence in two hours, and Rome in three. There are some fabulous restaurants within fifteen minutes' drive of Castalda and if you don't fancy driving to dinner we use a friendly, English-speaking taxi company based in Preggio.
