About the property

Apartment Citta della Pieve Umbria Peaceful Getaway Enchanting Medieval Village with Welcome Basket

A charming apartment with private entrance, private patio and large mosaic pool in traditional 16th Century Tuscan style farmhouse. Perfect for singles, couples or a small family. The farmhouse sits in acres of meadows with panoramic views of the Tuscan and Umbrian hill towns. Although secluded, the property is 5 mins drive from Citta della Pieve (bestsmalltownsitaly.com), a lesser known but delightful village in Umbria as well as home to a famous Oscar winning actor. The property is perfectly positioned to explore both Umbria and Southern Tuscany. The farmhouse has traditional features of chestnut beams and terracotta tiles, rustic and stylish but with modern amenities. Set in landscaped gardens with communal BBQ and viewing terraces. An extensive pantry is provided with pasta, pasta sauce, tea, coffee, extra virgin olive oil and breakfast staples. All linen, pool towels and toiletries such as shower gel and handmade soap supplied. The villages of Umbria and Southern Tuscany are a drive away and Rome and Florence an easy day trip. An ideal getaway in all seasons.

About C D Taylor

After 20 years living in London, I decided to realise a dream and move to Tuscany. My aim is for people to experience the beauty and simplicity of this region staying in stylish yet affordable accommodation.

C D Taylor purchased this apartment in 2007

Why C D Taylor chose Perugia area

I was looking for……...A traditional Tuscan style farmhouse...views…renovated... rustic yet modern...rural location but within easy reach of a village...pool…outdoor space...easy airport access! Not such an easy task given many of the properties I previously viewed didn't even have a roof! Then I came across Selve Vecchie. The property had been renovated keeping the rustic charm I was looking for yet with modern amenities. There was a large pool, ample outdoor space and topped off with panoramic views. The location was ideal. Only 5 mins away from the charming village of Citta della Pieve, which is on the border of Umbria & Tuscany. And finally, Perugia airport only 45 minutes drive away. I bought it immediately.

I said yes on the spot!

What makes this apartment unique

Waking up to a cup of Italian coffee, blue skies, sun, views and silence. And the pool is pretty good too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a very relaxing stay in your lovely apartment after four days of hectic activity at a friends wedding in Amelia. It was so quiet by the pool. We also visited new areas of Italy - Gubbio, Assissi and returned to an old favourite, Montepulciano.

Lovely apartment in great location in Umbria

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at Selve Vecchie for 5 years in a row so that should tell you enough! The apartment and region have really stolen our hearts! The house is truly lovely and even more so this year as it was entirely renovated. All amenities are available and the suble, local details make the apartment a true gem. Outside there is a large communal area with great pool and excellent views. Exploring Umbria and Tuscany is very easy from this location. Citta della Pieve is only a few minutes away by car. Other places to see include Lake Trasimeno, Perugia, Montepulciano, Orvieto.. Also Rome and Firenze are easy to reach, either via car or train from Chiusi. To sum it up: the ideal romantic gettaway for couples!

Bijou apartment, rustically furnished with a beautiful view from the low level bedroom window

Perfect accommodation and location not far from the stunning medieval town of Citta Del Pieve. A great setting with views in all directions of the Umbrian hills and countryside. Lovely sparkling pool also with great views and very clean. We met Carmelle at the end of our stay. She was lovely and it gave us the opportunity to thank her for the stocked larder, especially the wine! We would not hesitate to recommend the property or the location.

The perfect base for exploring the delightful local area with lots of attention to detail given

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

This was a delightful little property. The owner has fitted it out beautifully and it's extremely comfortable. There were several interesting folders left with plenty of information on local places to visit, including maps and recommendations of where to eat. This is the perfect base to explore the region and then return to relax by the pool, which has wonderful views towards the mountains.
