Description

Casa Tersalle is a traditional Umbrian farmhouse which forms part of a small, quiet hamlet. It is situated in tranquil, unspoilt countryside on the border with Tuscany and so is ideal for visiting the many wonderful artistic, architectural and historic sights of central Italy. While in a rural setting - ideal for walking - Casa Tersalle is close to shops, bars and restaurants as well as numerous charming mediaeval hilltop towns waiting to be explored nearby, in Umbria and in Tuscany.

Relax in a beautiful rural setting. A pleasant 15 minute walk through the fields takes you to the local village of Lippiano with its lively, friendly bar. There are various weekly markets in the area where you can get a feel of local life and for families with small children there is a park 5 minutes away with a playground area. If you enjoy walking, there are many possibilities nearby and after a day out you can look forward to returning to Casa Tersalle to take a dip in the plunge pool, relax

If you enjoy walking, there are many possibilities nearby and after a day out you can look forward to returning to Casa Tersalle to take a dip in the plunge pool, relax in the garden or on the terrace with a glass of wine, dine al fresco and enjoy the fabulous views!

The farmhouse provides flexibility for different sized groups and offers exclusive use however many people are staying. The accommodation is on two floors. You enter into the large traditional Umbrian kitchen with its open fireplace and a wood-burning stove as well as a modern extensively equipped fitted kitchen area. The kitchen leads through into the separate dining room and from here there is a staircase to the upstairs bedrooms. The light and spacious living room (access through the dining room) has superb views of the surrounding countryside. In this room there is a cosy wood-burning stove, two large comfortable sofas plus a divan bed, providing seating for up to 8 people. The 1st bedroom is next to the living room and has the same stunning views. The main bathroom is adjacent and has a bath with shower over, a handbasin, WC and bidet.

Note...bedroom provision:

With one bedroom on the ground floor and two on the upper floor, the property is suitable for up to 8 people.

* For 2 people the booking is for the ground floor only (one bedroom with 1 double or 2 single beds and the main bathroom).

* For 3-4 people the booking is for the ground floor, as above, plus 1 bedroom on the upper floor (with 1 double and 1 single bed or 3 single beds).

* For 5-8 people, the booking is for the whole house (3 bedrooms). The 3rd bedroom, which is accessed through the 2nd bedroom, has 1 double or 2 single beds and includes the ensuite WC and handbasin.

In addition, in all cases, there is the possibility of 2 single beds in the living room.

Outside there is a large sunny south-facing terrace where you can sit and relax and eat al fresco, while taking in the wonderful views of the surrounding fields and small lake, all with a backdrop of green wooded hills. There is also a small garden where you can relax on sun loungers and perhaps do some holiday reading. There is a large library of maps, books and films in the house for guests' use.

In the garden there is an above-ground plunge pool (3.5 m diam, 75 cm deep), which is great for cooling off on hotter days during the summer months. This has proved to be an extremely popular addition, both with children and adults!

The owners, Rob and Jane, who work as English language teachers in the area, live in separate accommodation (in the former animal stalls!) and are available for any help or advice that may be required. Whilst respecting guests' privacy, we are also happy to share a bottle of wine and a chat on the terrace.

In the immediate area of Umbria and Tuscany there are numerous mediaeval hilltop villages and towns waiting to be explored, many excellent restaurants and pizzerias and of course plenty of opportunity to stop for a cappuccino and/or a gelato! Experience the Italian culture, art, handicrafts and tradition of towns and cities of Umbria and Tuscany, such as Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Orvieto, Spello, Arezzo, Siena, Cortona and Florence, all within a 1.30 hour drive of Casa Tersalle. There are various local music festivals and events throughout the year, many revolving around a food theme - an opportunity to get a feel of local culture!

Why not have a wine-tasting experience in Montefalco, Montepulciano or Montalcino? We can also help if you would like to have an Italian cooking day. You could visit the Frasassi Caves - a great outing for families. Also within easy reach is Lake Trasimeno, with its beaches and shallow water - ideal for small children - where you can enjoy a fish meal and maybe take the short boat trip out to the island. For something different, there is Norcia, famous for its salami and wild boar sausages or, beautiful in early summer, is the Pian Grande di Castelluccio covered with a carpet of wild flowers. All this and plenty more to discover within a two hour drive of Casa Tersalle!

We look forward to welcoming you!

Further details indoors

Casa Tersalle has been carefully restored with an eye to retaining the original Umbrian farmhouse character: ceilings with exposed wooden beams, tiled floors, wooden shutters, open fireplace and wood-burning stoves and other feature, while incorporating modern facilities and comforts throughout. There are handrails conveniently positioned where they might be required.

All rooms are light, spacious and simply but comfortably furnished. There is a bookcase with plenty of reading matter including general reading, guide books and information leaflets about things to see in the area, as well as a comprehensive information folder which we have put together for visitors.

The New Zealand/English owners, Rob & Jane, who speak fluent Italian and work in Citta' di Castello, live in separate accommodation (the former animal stalls!) and are available for help or advice if required. Without wishing to impose on guests' privacy, we are happy to have a chat about our life and experiences in Italy over a glass or two of wine, if invited!

Further details outdoors

There is a large sunny south-facing terrace, shaded in summer, where you can sit and relax, eat, chat and while away the time whilst taking in the wonderful views of the surrounding fields and small lake, with a backdrop of green wooded hills.

There is also a small garden below the terrace - garden furniture, sun umbrellas and barbecue are provided.

There is a plunge pool (3.5 m diam, 75 cm deep) for cooling off on hot summer days - great for children and adults alike!

Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Umbria is an enclave of tranquillity, a rural region in central Italy, dubbed the 'Green Heart of Italy'. Life here is laid-back and peaceful. The well-known towns of Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Orvieto and Spoleto are all in Umbria, as well as many smaller mediaeval hilltop towns and villages, and Lake Trasimeno with its safe bathing beaches (and the place where Hannibal gave the Romans a lesson in military strategy!).

Casa Tersalle is an ideal choice if you are looking for comfortable accommodation in the Italian countryside, somewhere to relax and enjoy a taste of the natural beauty and the many sights that this still unspoilt part of Italy has to offer.

Citta di Castello

If you enjoy nature and walking, there are plenty of possibilities in the area, superb views and an abundance of wildlife to enjoy. Within easy reach, in addition to the many attractive mediaeval hilltop villages, there is Italian culture, art and tradition to be found in towns and cities such as Assisi, Perugia, Arezzo, Siena and Florence.

In the nearby village of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina you can take in the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and enjoy a cappuccino or cold drink at the friendly bar, where you can also buy superb local 'pecorino' cheese. In Citta' di Castello you can wander around the town soaking up the atmosphere of the old centre and perhaps stop awhile at a café in the 'piazza' to watch local life over a 'gelato' (ice-cream) or espresso.

There are numerous festivals and events in the local area throughout the year - often revolving around a food theme!
