Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Castellino is high above the Niccone Valley, a beautiful green valley that runs between Tuscany and Umbria, Castellino has views over both regions. It enjoys warm summers, hot for a few weeks at the end of July and brimming with wild-flowers in May and June. It is great place for walking, relaxing and visiting interesting, historic towns and villages.
The Tuscan towns of Cortona, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Pienza and Sansepulchro are all nearby, even Florence can be visited as a day trip, Rome too if you get up early!

The Umbrian towns of Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Orvieto, Deuta, Citta di Castello are all nearby and worth visiting.

Lisciano Niccone

The Umbrian village of Lisciano Niccone below has 3 restaurants/pizzerias and some shops and 2 bars/gelaterias. It is a friendly, lively village with a festa celebrating its own pasta "bringoli" in late July. There are tennis courts and a mini glof course in the village. The neighbouring Tuscan village of Mercatle is 1km from Lisciano and has 2 small supermarkets, 2 butchers a good bakers and several bars/cafes and a great trattoria.

“Lovely house, and a wonderful stay overall!”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2015

We had a great time at Castellino...particularly appreciated the well appointed kitchen, as we are cooks. The house is comfortable and the dining places in and outdoors are great. The outside chairs are very comfortable and we had several long dinners outside watching the moonrise.

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Castellino.
