Wooden Swiss style chalet in idyllic, secluded, hillside location on Umbrian hill farm with south facing views over Tuscany. With two bedrooms, kitchen/living room heated by wood-burning stove, shower room/toilet and outdoor barbecue the chalet contains all that you will need for your stay including towels and bedding. It stands on a grassy meadow in 64 acres (24 ha.) of mainly oak forest shared with one other house. The estate includes vineyard, overgrown olive groves, chestnut forest, pastures with wild herbs and flowers and a small lake (30m x 25m).

Located in the Upper Tiber Valley, 22km from Città di Castello and Umbertide, less than an hour from Arrezo and Perugia, Carpina is perfect for relaxing, get away from it all breaks, for walking or mountain biking and as a base from which to visit the many beautiful hilltowns of the area. With patience and a little luck wild animals including boar, deer, owl, hare, porcupine or owls may be heard or glimpsed at dawn or dusk close to the chalet itself. Cherries, plums, figs, grapes, mushrooms, walnuts, hazelnuts, and chestnuts are all to hand, in season.

Carpina has wifi ineternet and mobile phone coverage but no television reception. A small TV and a selection of DVDs for rare rainy days are available.Lifts to and from Trestina (10km), local transport links, or further afield can be arranged. The nearest restaurant is 4 km away, open all week in summer, Thursday through Sunday in winter.

Spring and summer evenings can be pretty special, with fireflies, owls, and the frog chorus from the lake. April and May are glorious with the chalet surrounded by yellow meadow flowers and juniper bushes amongst trees in a million shades of green while Autumn mornings often find Carpina bathed in sunshine while the valley below remains shrouded in mist.

PLEASE NOTE: As parts of the 900m track are difficult for some vehicles I will meet you on arrival and can transport luggage, shopping and young children to and from the chalet if you wish to park your car at the top of the track. Alternatively I can show you how to drive to the chalet. In case of snow or heavy rain, non 4x4s should park at the top of the track.

The Umbria region

Umbria and Toscana are famed for their natural beauty, hilltowns, walled cities, renaissance and mediaeval art and architecture, Etruscan heritage, wine, olives and food.

Citta di Castello

The Upper Tiber valley runs from above Arrezzo in Toscana to Umbertide in Umbria and includes the walled cities of San Sepulcro and Città di Castello as well as many hilltowns including Montone, Cisterna and Monte Santa Maria Tiberina. It is close to Lake Trasimeno and Castiglione di Lago, as wel as to Cortona and Castiglon Fiorentino.

Carpina itself is located at 500m. altitude above the Nestor valley, close to Morra (on the old road connecting Città di Castello to Castiglion Fiorentino), 10 km from Trestina, 22km from Città di Castello and Umbertide, 1 hour from Arezzo and Perugia and 2 hrs from Florence. Wild animals such as wild boar, deer, porcupine, hares and owls may be seen and/or heard, with luck and a little patience, at dawn or dusk on the road and track to the chalet or, occasionally, around the chalet itself at night.

The are is great for walking, relaxing and getting away from it all. Plums, cherries,walnuts, hazelnuts, chestnuts and mushrooms are all at hand, according to the season. There are many tracks suitable for mountain biking, but fitness is required if cycling back up to the chalet from the valleys below.
