Bottale is built on the side of a hill and consequently the land has many different levels. As well as the internal stairs there are also several sets of external steps, as well many sloping paths. We therefore would not recommend Bottale for persons with restricted mobility.
Bottale is set in 2.5 acres of terraced gardens. The infinity pool is situated on the uppermost, south facing terrace and is bathed in sunshine for approximately 12 hours a day during July and August. There are two formal areas which are lawned and planted with a mixture native and exotic plants. There are also many mature trees including cypress, olive, walnut, cherry and maple. Moving away from the house the land is allowed to grow more naturally to encourage and support as much of the varied indigenous wildlife as possible. The south facing sun terrace offers magnificent, uninterrupted views across the Carpini valley towards the medieval village of Montone. The terrace is accessed from the kitchen and is equipped with dining table and umbrella for alfresco dining. These are complimented with loungers and a barbecue.

Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Bottale. The house was excellent, having everything we could ask for and the pool is an absolute winner with the incomparable view to Montone. We will definitely recommend you to others and would like to come back ourselves at some point. BJ
Just wanted to say what a lovely time we had at the farmhouse. It is beautifully renovated & in such a stunning location.
We managed a day at the Perugia jazz festival, which was great. We also visited Assisi and Gubbio, but spent most time around the house and Montone - what a lovely town.
We will certainly recommend the house to our friends. VR
I Just wanted to say the hugest of thank yous for your generosity of spirit and wonderful taste which helped us celebrate our wedding at Bottale in an atmosphere of complete calm and beauty.
Everyone was absolutely smitten, with your home, the pool, and Montone. It was the home from home wedding we dared to wish for. Thank you. CD
