Description from owner

Relaxing time and close to motepulciano for the wine road, and chianciano thermal area is 20 minutes drive away.

This three bedroom property has a traditional look but the modern commodities you need to have a comfortable and enjoyable holiday. It is perfect for a small family, or group of friends. In the hearth of the historic center, Casa Canestrelli has his original '300 face. Hight sealings and antiques decor will take you back in time.

Check the perfect time when there will be festivals in citta della pieve, not to be missed is the Palio dei terzieri, held in August, or the infiorata which is the 21st of June, where the Main Street, will be offered on designs made of flowers. The view from the house is one of the best!

The Umbria region

A poet once called Umbria the green heart of Italy. One of the smallest of all the Italian provinces (only 8,500 square kilometers) what Umbria lacks in size it more than makes up for in spectacularly dramatic landscapes, art and architecture. Has a distinctly different feeling from its close neighbor Tuscany. How? It is wilder, more rugged, less manicured, covered with lush green forests, rolling hills, sleepy little hill towns and peaceful valleys.

Citta della Pieve

The small town of Città della Pieve, characterized by the red color of bricks with which it was built, is situated on the border of Umbria and Tuscany not far from Lazio, in the heart of Central Italy. It is located on a hill overlooking the Val di Chiana (Chiana Valley) and Lake Trasimeno.

In the valley below are Italy's more important communication systems: the regular railroad and the high-speed Florence-Rome railway (the Chiusi- Chianciano Terme station is 8 km away); the A1 highway (Autostrada del Sole) with the Fabro exit 17 km south, and the ChiusiChianciano Terme exit 15 km north of town. Thanks to its favorable position, halfway between Rome and Florence, has known a tourist growth and nowadays is one of the most visited towns of Umbria.

Città della Pieve, a typical border town, is an original blend of the cultures of Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio. It belonged to the city-state of Chiusi during the Etruscan-Roman period, as is proven by the numerous archaeological objects, now scattered in various European museums, found along the Val di Chiana at the base of the hill. There remains in Città della Pieve a singular Etruscan obelisk from the 6th century B.C., now on the ground floor of the Palazzo della Corgna.

The town developed between the 7th and 8th centuries A.D. around the baptismal church ("Pieve") of Saints Gervasio and Protasio, patrons of the fortified look-out Its urban plan, as we see it today, dates to al least 1250, year of the Emperor's death. It is for these political reasons, and not only for its geographical position, that Castel della Pieve modelled its urban structure and building materials (i.e. bricks) after Siena, the great Central Italian, pro-imperial power in constant conflict with Perugia.

Between the 13th and the 14th centuries, numerous buildings rose within the city walls: the new Pieve with early signs of the Gothic style; the Lombard-Romanesque city tower; the Priors' Palace; the Bishop's Tower and the solid Perugia Fortress, built in 1326 by the Sienese architects Lorenzo and Ambrogio Maitani. This is one of the most important examples of military architecture in the region.

From the middle of the 14th century, the monastic orders settled outside the city walls and built Sant'Agostino, San Francesco, Santa Maria dei Servi and Santa Lucia.

There are numerous paintings by artists of the Sienese School, including the Gothic fresco "Sorrow of the Angels" in the Oratory of San Bartolomeo, painted by Pellicciaio a follower of Pietro Lorenzetti, Ambrogio Lorenzetti and of Simone Martini.

Città della Pieve is the birthplace of the greatest painter Pietro Vannucci nicknamed Perugino who was born there in the middle of the 15th century. Several masterpieces of Perugino are preserved in Città della Pieve: the renowned "Adoration of the Magi" (1504) in the Oratory of Santa Maria dei Bianchi; " Madonna in Glory and Saints" and "Baptism of Christ" in the Cathedral; "Deposition from the Cross" in the church of Santa Maria dei Servi; "Sant'Antonio Abate between Saints Marcello and Paolo Eremita" in the church of San Pietro.

Valuable paintings in the Cathedral and in the church of San Francesco are attributed to Perugino's school. Other notable works of art by Salvini and Pomarancio are preserved in the Cathedral and in the church of Sant'Agostino
