About the property

Farmhouse near Montone / Umbertide, Umbria, Italy - Ideally Situated For Visiting Historic Towns And Cities Or Simply Relaxing By The Pool

Bottale is a 19th century Casa Colonica which was originally built as a working farm on which the family raised their livestock of cattle and pigs. The house is built on the side of a hill with a south facing terrace providing magnificent, uninterrupted views across the beautiful and unspoilt Carpini valley towards the medieval village of Montone. The house is set in two and half acres of natural surroundings with two formal gardens laid to lawn and planted with native and exotic plants. The 12 metre infinity swimming pool is situated on a terrace above the house and provides uninterrupted views across the Carpini Valley to Montone. Internally, the house has been renovated to a very high standard an offers excellent facilities for relaxing and entertaining. Bottale provides easy access to local shops and markets as well as for sightseeing towns and cities such as Assisi, Perugia, Siena and Florence. The Adriatic coast is a 90 minute drive with Mediterranean being closer to 2.5 hours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

The nearest airport is Perugia (30 minutes) to which Ryanair have regular flights from Stansted. There are also airports at Forli (90 minutes), Ancona (2 hours), Bologna (2.5 hours), Pisa (2.5 hours) and Rome (2.5 hours).

Further Details:

Montone, awarded one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is approximately 5km from the house and offers a very good selection of highly recommended restaurants, including Del Verziere, Erba Luna and Locanda del Capitano. It also has two delightful bars situated on the piazza together with several local shops (two grocers, a bakery and a delicatessen offering a range of good local produce). There is also a bank with cashpoint, post office, chemist, doctor and dentist. Umbertide is the nearest large town which has several supermarkets as well as its own restaurants and bars. Each Wednesday morning there is a market where you will find a wide variety of local produce including, vegetables, meats, cheeses and olives.

The region is renowned for its natural beauty and, although July and August are the hottest months, we would encourage prospective clients to consider May, June and September when the local fauna and flora are at there most resplendent.
