Overview

About the property

Farmhouse Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Umbria - Peaceful, Private but Readily Accessible to Local Facilities, Restaurants and Cultural Highlights

Casale Sole Set in 8 hectares of South facing hillside provides modern comfort in a rural setting private yet not remote.

There’s a double suite on the ground floor, a sitting room and the spacious family kitchen opening onto a large covered terrace area. Accessed by a central staircase, the first floor provides a superb double bedroom with dressing room and bathroom, a library and magnificent drawing room. There are 2 further bedrooms on the second floor, 1 with a large bathroom and dressing room, 1 with an en-suite shower. With its vines, olives, meadows and woodland, the property provides space and scope for active children or country-minded adults. The large pool catches the sun all day. The house is just 2 minutes from the village, with a general store, pharmacy and cashpoint, and a pizza restaurant which – of course – will do takeaways. The vibrant walled town of Citta di Castello is just 10 minutes away, with shops, restaurants, a constant calendar of events and a brilliant Italian buzz.

About Mrs Meg Taylor

Hello,

We are two ageing lawyers who fell in love with Umbria many years ago. 13 years ago a small inheritance enabled us to take the plunge and buy a traditional farmhouse encased in concrete which over the years we have lovingly restored.

We believe we have created a warm, welcoming, stylish and functioning home; we hope you agree.

Monte Santa Maria, Citta di Castello and the surrounding countryside are in a truly special part of the world.

Oh yes, we are aware that online booking entails mutual trust; we are are always available to answer any queries you may have about us, the house and Umbria.

Kind regards,

Meg

Mrs Meg Taylor purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Stunning house!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely stunning! We have just returned from a blissful fortnight at Casale Sole and can honestly say there was nothing we would change. The house is very well equipped and finished to a high standard particularly the beautiful kitchen which led out on to a lovely shaded loggia where we enjoyed numerous home cooked meals and tasty take away pizza from the local pizzeria in Gioello. Nearby San Secondo has a wonderful patisserie with exceptional croissant and cakes that provided for delicious breakfasts as the sun gradually warmed us. The house is really well situated for visiting some beautiful hilltop towns and villages, Montone being one of them.

There were 8 of us at the house plus a 1 year old. Arranged over 3 floors there was plenty of space for everyone. Outside, the pool was lovely and great for the younger members of the party.

Overall, I would certainly recommend this property to anyone after a really special break!
