Owner's comment: We really love having an Agriturismo 150 metres from us. It is not only a lovely B&B where our friends can stay but also a restaurant we can walk to which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner! We also buy our fresh eggs, vegetables and fruit from them which is so convenient and delicious. We have enjoyed this wonderful house for 10 years, Umbertide is located in Umbria bordering Tuscany which means a lot of history, wineries and amazing restaurants where we have come to know many new friends. When we started looking abroad, we searched for a place that was not overcrowded in the summer or too quiet in the winter, in Umbria we found our dream place!
The apartment is well maintained with gas central heating and double-glazing, it has a nicely equipped kitchen, a shower room and although there is just one double bedroom the living room is large enough for a sofa bed.
The 200 square metre garden is well planted and there is shared use of the 18x6 metre swimming pool. Given the size this is a perfect little property to use or to let throughout the year and it is only a short drive to local amenities in Umbertide.
The Niccone Valley is where Tuscany meets Umbria. The northern valley is mainly in Tuscany, topped by five ancient castles or fortified villages; all standing opposite their Umbrian counterparts that lie on the hills of the southern valley and all built over a 1,000 year period of Papal and Renaissance history.
Today, the 11 miles of the Niccone valley, which includes the Val di Pierle, is dotted with restored private farmhouses, luxury villas and apartments, all popular with discerning visitors. The villages of Lisciano Niccone (Umbria) and Mercatale di Cortona (Tuscany) sit at the western most extreme of this wide valley.
