It's a 50 sq. apt in a house with other two. There is double bedroom and a hide-a-bed in the living room . Private access to a very large garden with stone barbecue and a Foosball table. Perfect base for visiting Umbria. Have a vehicle!
It's an old house recently restored, super quiet, perfect for barbecues and dining in the garden.
If you have a car you can use this place as a base for visiting Umbria.
The place is located in a tiny valley within the Appennino Centrale.
You can walk up on the neighbor hills or along the river Nestore, which flows a hundred meters away from the house.
Staying at home.
Righ at the front door you have an excellent barbecue (see the photos to believe it) and right bejond that a simple fenced kindergarten (with a swing and a slide) where your kids can play under your watch.
For more grown ups, there is a real foosball table (also in the small patio at the front door), alternatively you can play with bowls in the garden.
Righ under the patio you will find The Fresh Spot. It is a small corner with a table and two chairs squeezed between the house exterior wall and the mountain. In all day, that place is reach by the sun only for half an hour and therefore it is always fresh, perfect for having a coffee or a glass of wine and reading.
Where to buy food.
There is a well furnished market at 2 km down the road. They have common consumer products but also local delicacies. (check on the guidebook)
Animals. Since you are in a countryside in a low populated place, in a tiny valley with a river, the presence of animals should not surprise you. For example, my neighbor has a German Shepherd. But that's not what I meant, I was referring to:
Wildboars: you will not see them, because they are the shy type, but if you stay quite and silent, after 10pm or so you may hear them grunting and chewing.
Deers. Even more difficult to see in general, but a couple of them come down the hill every evening to drink at the river.
Foxes. If you don't have chickens or other farm animals to be stolen, you won't see neither foxes nor other similar predators.
Lizards. Lots of lizards, completely harmless.
Temperature. Of course you can check any website for the weather but here it is a true fact about the place:
there is no night where you can't use a sweater, no matter how hot was during the day.
The house has very large stone walls and, even if there is no air conditioning, it never becomes too hot inside.
For warming the place during the winter there is a wood stove. Just so you know: from December to April it is not a place where you can leave in the morning and go back in the evening because the stove needs to stay loaded.
Hot water is provided by a boiler system, after 6 minutes of running steamy water it need 20 minutes to warm it up again.
