Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Casa della Maestra is located high above the Niccone Valley which runs between Tuscany and Umbria. Casa della Maestra is on the Umbrian side. The nearest town is Umbertide which has a colourful local market weekly and many shops and restaurants. The Umbrian towns of Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi and Orvieto with their wealth of artistic treasures, sublime architecture and long histories are all within each reach. In Tuscany, Cortona is within 45 minutes drive, the Chianti region is just over one hour's drive as is Siena and the famous wine towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino.

Spedalicchio

The Niccone Valley is one of the most sought-after locations on the Tuscany-Umbria border. It is a beautiful green valley dotted with castles and stone farmhouses and cypress lined drives. It is a very peaceful area and good for walking. Try Martin Daykin's "Circular Walks on the Tuscany and Umbria border". There are walks from the front door of Casa della Maestra. In May and June the valley abounds with wild flowers. It is very hot in July to mid-August but the high altitude of Casa della Maestra means the nights are always a pleasant temperature.
