About this listing
Two story stone house located at the top of a hill near the castle of Montecchio Vesponi (between Castiglion Fiorentino e Cortona) and surrounded by oak and olive trees. Ideal location for hiking, biking, and exploring nearby Tuscan & Umbrian towns.
On the ground floor: large kitchen/dining room (with dishwasher), one bedroom, and one bathroom (with washer). On the upper floor: one medium size and one large bedroom with another bathroom. The large bedroom can hold one or two extra single beds. All beds can be divided into single beds.
We'll let you choose the number of bedrooms you want to use and we will adjust the price accordingly. The bedrooms that you don't use will remain closed. There will be an extra charge if there are more than 6 guests over the age of 10. All the grounds around the house are yours to use.
Interaction with guests
We will meet you to open the house and give you the keys, and we will remain available for questions, suggestions on what to do and where to eat in the area, and any other need.
There are other country homes nearby, but you will feel rather quiet and secluded. From your windows you will see the woods and the expense of Val di Chiana (the Chiana Valley) in front of you. The area is quite renowned for its restaurants and good food and we'll be glad to give you our recommendations.
You will need a car to get to the house since the closest bus stop is on the main road, about a mile from the house. By car, you may reach the train station of Castiglion Fiorentino in less than 15 minutes, and from there you can get a train to Arezzo (12 minutes), Florence (about one hour), Rome (about 2 1/2 hours) and everywhere in between, including Cortona, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, etc... If you have a car, you can explore the many nearby Tuscan and Umbrian towns and vineyards.
Other things to note
There is a pretty uphill winding road to reach the location from the main road. There is a convenience store at the bottom of the hill and plenty of shopping opportunities in the nearby towns of Castiglion Fiorentino (3 miles), Camucia (5 miles), and Cortona (8 miles). There are other homes in the area, but you will feel totally quiet and free when you are there.
We love this house and we want to share it only with people who appreciate and respect it. No pets and no smoking in or near the house. Small events are permitted as long as the guests are respectful.
