Description from owner
Villa Quercia situated in stunning countryside near the lovely town of Citta' di Castello has some of the most breath-taking views you will have come across. One of the upstairs master bedrooms has a large private terrace from which to enjoy these and the covered terrace is truly an outdoor sitting room with comfy sofa and armchairs where to sit and enjoy a glass or two at any point of the day, the perfect spot! If you like to swim, the pool will become your favourite ever as huge 16m x 6m, Saline and heated. Villa Quercia has several areas for spending time together or apart and is the perfect location for relaxation as well as seeing all the local sights. With 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms getting ready will not be an issue.
You enter the property via the wonderful covered terrace with spectacular views. Large doors lead into a bright sitting room with internet TV, DVD library and a wood burner for the cooler months of the year. The sitting room is in the former tobacco tower therefore has very high ceilings lending this space a very airy and bright feeling.
From the upstairs sitting room doors lead into the upstairs master bedrooms and bathrooms. One of the master bedrooms has its own private terrace from which to enjoy the amazing views and its own bathroom with walk-in shower. A set of doors lead into the second master bedroom suite, comprising of dressing area, bathroom /tub and very spacious bedroom.
From the upstairs sitting room a staircase leads down to the lower floor where you will find two further bedrooms each with two single beds (which can both be made into double beds). These rooms have very large doors with lockable shutters. There are also two lovely bathrooms on this floor so that each bedroom has its own bathroom.
Also situated on the lower floor is the modern kitchen with table and chairs seating 8-10 and a second smaller sitting area with sofa and armchairs. Doors lead outside onto a large area, terrace for outside dining with sunshade, barbecue and again with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.
The property has been restored (former tobacco tower) to a high standard throughout. Originally an agricultural building, we have taken great care in restoring the villa to have all modern comforts and yet retaining the original feeling of the place. We have used local workmanship throughout using the traditional chestnut beams and tiled ceilings and the floors are all terracotta tiles which keep the floors nice and cool in the hot summer months. We have used good quality sanitary wear and tiles in all 4 bathrooms so that each bedroom has a lovely bathroom.
The property has a very large 16x6m saline, pool (almost no chlorine) situated on a terrace one level below the house. We have now also made it a heated pool and have added a thermal cover for when the nights start to get chillier so the heat does not escape. There are plenty of sunbeds for those of you who want to take in the sun, but, there is also plenty of natural shading provided by trees and shrubs for those of you who prefer to sit in the shade. On one side of the pool we have planted a row with lavender stretching the entire length of the pool and on the other sides of the pool are planted a variety of shrubs including rosemary, thyme and sage which guests are very welcome to pick and use in cooking. We have also planted a variety of roses to add some colour and there is a fig tree just outside of the kitchen area where you are welcome to pick the fruit when ripe.
The property is set in beautiful tranquil countryside and, should you wish to take a stroll into the village maybe for a glass of Prosecco or some ice cream then you can walk it in around 15mins, there is also a small shop that sells fresh bread in the mornings.
The property is ideal for friends and families sharing as the two floors are very separate and hence the lower floor will not disturb those who may be resting on the upper floor. The villa is ideal for those that wish to spend time together with its many lounging areas, however, also have some privacy at times.
Villa Quercia is ideal for those wanting to relax by the pool as well as for those of you who want to take in the sights as within 30-45 mins you can visit any number of wonderful places such as Cortona, Citta' di Castello, Montone, Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia, Arezzo and many more.
And should you wish to take a break from the pool and the views there is a ping pong table situated in the portico.
Last but not least for those of you who need to be able to check emails and perhaps do a bit of work there is good WiFi connection at the property that we do not charge for.
And for those of you who wish to go walking, cycling, canoeing (very good club in Cita' di Castello), play some tennis, golfing, sailing on lake Trasimeno, cooking lessons or take in a winery tour and more all of this can be arranged in the area.
The perfect lo place and location for your holiday in Umbria!

- Very Good
This is a great house, the layout of the villa flows very easily with outdoor sitting area leading into indoor sitting area and then more relaxing areas on the lower floor. Everything was very easy to use with no complicated frills, clean lines yet really comfortable and beautiful. The directions to the property were perfect and the caretakers of the villa were lovely with the owners also at hand if required. Getting up the first morning and sitting in the sunshine looking down the valley was just amazing, we have been to some stunning locations but the views from this place are some of the best we have ever seen. The house is close to a good but not busy road, then up a little back road, so not far but far enough for it to be quiet and peaceful. Perfect for relaxation but not so difficult to go and see the sights and easy to get to some really nice local restaurants. The pool is superb, like the house with simple clean lines but is very very large so you can really swim and the saline water was just lovely and the fact that it was heated was perfect as we came in mid September. Worked brilliantly for all of us and in fact it is one of the best houses we have been to perfect combination between seclusion yet good access to great sights. We will certainly be back!
“Perfect place and pool”
We rented this beautiful place for a week with friends, so there were 7 of us. Christina and Richard were delightful when they welcomed us on arrival. The house and gardens look like they do in the photos (we have been to places before where we were not quite sure!!). We loved the huge pool and the fact that there were enough lounge chairs for all of us and shade too. The surroundings were very tranquil and quiet. It was so lovely to sit in one of the several outdoor spaces to relax or watch the incredible night sky (who could believe there are so many stars when there is no light pollution). We would love to come back some day. Thanks
Owner's reply: Many thanks for the lovely review. Manon, we would love to welcome you back and hope this is sooner rather than later. All the best.
“Ridiculously lovely villa”
We loved this property in particular the stunning pool, in fact the best pool we have ever had. No frills, just really big, in fact big enough that we had 8 adults and 1 child in with lilos all at the same time, brilliant! The property is great too, pretty and airy, lots of space and a bathroom for each of the bedrooms which was much appreciated with lots of young adults. We also loved the fact that although the villa is immersed in beautiful countryside with stunning views, it is up a relatively short white road (not hours of bumping around) and within 30 minutes you can be in a lot of lovely places. And the little shop in the village itself was great for bread in the morning and if we had forgotten something. We can highly recommend this villa!

“Fantastic views, huge swimming pool and a very relaxing stay”
We stayed at Villa Bargi for a week in June. Lovely weather and perfect surroundings to enjoy the Umbrian countryside. The Villa is huge and has the biggest swimming pool we have ever seen for a Villa. Seriously we have stayed at hotels with smaller pools! We had a great bedroom with views down the valley, tiled floor and a wooden beamed ceiling. The bathroom wasn't ensuite but literally next door, very new and clean with a fantastic shower (also with views down the valley!). The villa has excellent space inside and out with several different eating areas and "chill zones". Our favourite spot was the covered terrace - it is simply perfect for evening drinks and to watch the sun go down. We didn't use the ping pong table, but younger people probably would. You definitely need a car. About 20 minutes to Citta di Castello (depending on the time of day), well located for the motorway network and sightseeing in Umbria and Tuscany.
