About the property


La Lunetta, converted from an old barn into two apartments: ARCO sleeps 4/6 and STUDIO, sleeps 2, with possibility of interconnecting the two apartments . The conversion has retained the original character with arched openings, huge beams and revealed stonework, and is elegantly furnished with all the latest equipment. Overlooking a timeless Umbrian landscape of rolling wooded hills, gentle valleys, sheep pastures, distant prospects, with just the occasional tinkle of a sheep bell or the glimpse of a strolling monk to disturb your siesta. Only 15 minutes from lively town of Umbertide, with all daily needs and weekly market (with 2nd-hand English bookstall!). The 2 properties share the pool, also with the English owners (who never go in the water, just snooze pool-side) living in the large farmhouse close by, and can be rented individually (4 and 2 respectively) or as a complex (6/8), ideal for an extended family or friends party.
