The property is situated in a beautiful, sparsely populated green valley, some 20 min. from Terni, the provincial capital, and about one hour north of Rome.

THE MAIN HOUSE OR "CASALE"

The main house or "casale", whilst featuring modern essentials such as double glazing and central heating, has nevertheless retained its traditional feeling thanks to the pointed stone walls, waxed terracotta tiled floors and exposed ceiling beams. The casale features a fully equipped kitchen with crockery and cutlery for 12, a gas hob, a dishwasher, a microwave oven and ample kitchenware (including an Italian coffee maker, a toaster, a blender, a juice squeezer, a pasta maker, etc.). The spacious dining and living room (with TV) offers beautiful views of the property's patio and garden. The casale sleeps 7 in four bedrooms: two in a double bed on the ground floor, and on the first floor two in two single beds, two in a double bed and one in a single bed. There are three bathrooms in the main house: two shower rooms with sink, shower, toilet and bidet, and a bathroom with bath (with hydromassage), double sink, toilet and bidet.

THE ANNEX

The annex, situated only a few meters from the main house, consists of a bedroom (sleeping two in a double bed), and a large bathroom with sink, toilet, bidet and shower. The annex has central heating, air conditioning, double glazing and external shutters. As on the rest of the property, there is free wireless internet connection.

THE SELF-CATERING OUTHOUSE

The self-catering holiday annex at "La Chioccia" consists of a living area with "kitchen corner", a bedroom with one double bed, a laundry/utility room and a bathroom with sink, shower, toilet and bidet. The sofa bed in the living area can sleep one. The unit has central heating, air conditioning, double glazing and external shutters. As on the rest of the property, there is free wireless internet connection.

GARDEN

"La Chioccia" is nestled in a magnificent, fully-fenced 1 ha. property. The house is surrounded by a beautifully kept lawn. Mature trees provide shade around the house, while guests can fully enjoy the sun in and around the private, 12x6m. swimming pool. Guests can take in views of the surrounding olive groves and oak woods from the roofed terrace (with lounge furniture) and dine all-fresco on the patio.

NOTES ABOUT LA CHIOCCIA

"La Chioccia" is exceptionally suited for children, who can play in the shaded garden (fully fenced) with tree house. Parents do need need to worry about safety - the garden is exceptionally well kept and does not feature any "danger areas". The steps leading into the pool make it perfect for children. And children will surely enjoy feeding the owner's chickens!

Pets of all kinds are especially welcome.

Gardening and swimming pool cleaning services are included in our rental rates.

Cooking courses (in Italian or English) by a professional chef can be organized at La Chioccia upon request.




Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Umbria, the "green heart" of Italy, will surprise visitors with its unique blend of nature, history, culture and cuisine. The green hills of Umbria are dotted with pittoresque medieval villages, of which many have changed very little over the centuries. Not to be missed are the charming little towns of Amelia, Narni, Todi, ... and of course the better-know cities of Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi and Spoleto, to name but a few. Nature lovers must see the lakes of Bolsena and Piediluco, the Oasis of Alviano, the fossil forest of Dunnaroba or the waterfalls of Marmore, the highest waterfalls of Europe. Those interested in Roman or Etruscan history should visit the ruins of Ocriculum, Carsulae, Tuscania, Tarquinia and Volci.

A trip to Umbria would not be complete without enjoying its cuisine. Excellent food and wine are just as much a part of the region's charm as its forests, frescoes, and castles. Wine and olive oil, the two absolute protagonists of Umbrian cuisine dating back to the Umbrians and the Etruscans, have modelled the landscape into a characteristic succession of vineyards and olive groves. Visitors can tour the region's many vineries, following for example the "Strada dei Vini Etrusco".

The following villages and towns of interest can be reached within one hour or less:

Penna in Teverina: 3 km.
Amelia: 10 km.
Narni: 25 km.
Viterbo: 25 km.
Orvieto: 45 km.
Todi: 65 km.
Spoleto: 65 km.
Rome: 90 km.
Perugia: 100 km.
Assisi: 110 km.

The proximity to Rome makes a day trip by train to the capital (35 minutes from Orte) no problem at all.

Guests may enjoy a swim in one of the many lakes in the region, including the Lago di Bolsena or the Lago di Piediluco. The nearest beach, at Montalto di Castro, is about 1.5 hours away. In addition, thermal spas (sulphur springs) are to be found in Orte, a 15 min drive. Meanwhile, the 2,000 square-meter monumental pool at Viterbo's "Terme dei Papi"is filled with thermal water from the Bullicame font. Stepping into the warm vaporous waters during winter months is not only good for your health but it is also an exceedingly evocative experience (full thermal treatments available).

Penna in Teverina

Penna in Teverina's secret is that it is not a tourist attraction. It does not boast an important church or museum and is rarely mentioned in guide books. Thus Penna has remained unspoiled; a small, traditional hill town virtually unchanged for hundreds of years. Life here is lived at a slow, leisurely pace. The streets in the old part of the village are "pedestrian only" not because of some law but because they are not wide enough to accommodate a car. In the afternoon, the men play cards at the bar while the women sit chatting on doorsteps and stairways. In the evening, old and young alike gather around the piazza in search of the latest gossip. There are festivals where you can eat home made honey and sip this year's "novello" together with the locals, concerts in the piazza that draw crowds without a single celebrity, and parades that inspire the entire town to dress up in period costumes.

The closest shops for basic needs (cash machine, groceries, butcher, newsagent, bar, pharmacy, hardware store) are about 3 kilometers from the villa, in the village of Penna. For well-stocked supermarkets, guests can go to Giove (5 km), Amelia or Orte (15 min drive).
