  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed

Battistacci has been very cleverly restored to preserve every bit of its rustic atmosphere, but with the addition of all those little “luxuries” like plumbing and electricity, which the original owners, the contadini, somehow managed without!

The house sits snugly on the top of a little hillock so you go straight in on the first floor. The hall leads into a comfy sitting room which, like the rest of the house, has fine old oak beams in the ceiling and beautifully waxed terracotta floor tiles. The rooms exude character from every pore. The country kitchen has a fridge-freezer, dishwasher and gas cooker, as well as thoughtful additions made by a caring owner like an electric toaster, microwave oven and lots of pans and utensils. The rest of the first floor is taken up by a large, handsomely furnished double bedroom and a really huge bathroom.

The laundry room is on the ground floor with a separate outside entrance. A path winds from the front door to the various terraces, where the owners have spent many an evening admiring the glorious views over the valley below with a glass of chilled wine – and doubtless you will too!

Battistacci is just 5 km from the centre of Umbertide, with its Wednesday morning market, shops, banks and bustle. The superstrada running north-south between Tuscan Sansepolcro and Umbrian Perugia lies at a similar distance to whisk you away when tourism beckons. There are two neighbours, so you will be able to practice your Italian if they are in residence. However the pool and its terrace, being on the other side of the house, are completely private.

This is a genuine Umbrian farmhouse with no touristy glitz; just lots of space and comfort for lovers of togetherness. For honeymoons, anniversaries or just plain billing and cooing in the Umbrian sunshine, Battistacci offers all you could need - and if you like cats, there’s even one of them!

The Umbria region

The many Umbrian mountains and hills cast long dark shadows over river valleys, darkened by beautiful chestnut groves and elm forests. In so many ways, Umbria has lain in the shadows for centuries. The vast hills are scattered with watchtowers, fortresses, castles and we preserved towns well known for producing wonderful ceramics, hand-made linens and antique bric-a-brac.

Umbertide

Umbria offers two excellent 18 hole golf courses, ideal for a day (or several!) on the green during your holiday.

Antognolla Golf

Located half way between Perugia and Umbertide in the heart of Umbria, the Antognolla golf course offers an especially picturesque setting for this superb course set in 600 hectares of nature reserve that is the Antognolla Estate. This is an 18 hole par 71 course designed by Robert Trent Jones II - he designed the Celtic Manor course which hosted the 2010 Ryder Cup, so you know you’ll be in for a satisfying challenge. You’ll find smooth greens and pristine fairways, a fine driving range, golf carts aplenty and an excellent clubhouse and restaurant. The pro shop offers all you’d expect, plus delights like locally sourced cashmere jumpers and amusing candles in the shape of gold balls. Summer’s Leases guests renting one of the luxurious villas on the estate are automatically entitled to a 20% discount of green fees and a 10% discount in the club’s restaurant. The views and scenery at Antognolla are simply stunning. Non playing partners might enjoy a trip to the Wednesday morning market at Umbertide or a trip into Perugia as mentioned above. The mini-metro stop at Madonna Alta is 20 minutes drive from Antognolla, so it would be easy to organise a day to please both players and non-players.
