Ca di Bracco has all the charm of an old Umbrian farmhouse; many original features, such as the barrel vaulted kitchen ceiling and chestnut beams and terracotta floors throughout. Great views of the countryside and modern comforts including a heated, fenced pool, hot tub and wifi internet. Outside: A large terrace for dining and relaxing, BBQ, table tennis, pool and hot tub. See Umbria and Tuscany and relax with family and friends. Walk to a great restaurant along country roads and paths.
Ca di Bracco is on a hillside looking over the Niccone Valley on the Tuscany-Umbria border. It is approached by 0.5km of its own road and is not over-looked. The house has 5 bedrooms and can sleep 10 in beds. There are 3 double bedrooms of which 2 have en suite bathrooms with bath tubs and separate showers. There are 2 rooms with 2 single beds in each. There are 2 additional shower rooms. The living space is open plan and includes a cosy sitting room with TV, sofas and armchairs and a wood-burning stove. A well-equipped kitchen and a dining room. From the dining room is a large terrace looking out over the garden, pool area and the valley beyond. Part of the terrace is covered with climbing plants and has a large dining table and chairs. There is a BBQ, loungers, swing seat, table football and table tennis. The pool has shade to one side and good quality loungers and a table and chairs. The 5x10m pool is heated and open from late April until the end of October, it has a deep end to 2.2m. The pool has salt water.
We, the owners live in a small apartment attached to the house but completely separate. The guests have the pool and garden exclusively to themselves and won't notice we are here unless you want to speak to us. We have a friendly German shepherd dog and an old deaf cat.
Guests have complete and exclusive access to the house, terrace, garden areas and pool.
Interaction with guests
Martin my husband is a sommelier and runs wine tastings at the local vineyard - 5 minutes from the house. You can join him at one of his tastings or he can do a private one to your taste at the house. We can give advice on where to go, eat and shop and help out in most situations.
We can also provide meals and baby-sitting at an extra cost.
Other things to note
A fantastic restaurant is within walking distance without having to walk on a tarmac road or pavement, using just country paths through fields and crossing a (hopefully) dry river bed, you'll need torches to get home in the evening though - or we can pick you up. There are another 2 really great restaurants within 5 minutes drive of the house.
Maximum number is 10 in beds and 2 cots/cribs. We cannot accommodate more than this number.
Please note a dog and a cat live at this house. We will accept a pet with prior notice. Dogs are not allowed on the furniture or in the swimming pool and any dog mess is to be cleared up.
