The villa is in Casa Colonica style, built on several levels, with a tiled roof and features dating back to the 14th century, exposed wood beams give the interior a warm and friendly atmosphere. 6 comfortable bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 living rooms can accommodate up to 12 people. The renovated kitchen (including dishwasher and microwave) is on the ground floor, leading to a wonderful terrace offering superb views.

The charming walled cities of Sansepolcro, Anghiari and Città Di Castello, with full facilities and numerous restaurants, are only 10 - 15 mins away.
