About the property

Sleeps 12. 5 Bedrooms. 5 Bathroom, Villa On 2 Levels, In the middle of Umbria

Located in the middle of Umbria, halfway between Todi and Perugia, Casale San Bartolomeo is only 1,40 hr from Rome and Florence.

Casale San Bartolomeo is the perfect place for a family or group holiday but also for a small group that wants to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside.

The villa is at the edge of a forest: front of us only hillst. Our neighbors are almost 1 km away but it can happen to run into squirrels, deer, foxes, owls.

Marsciano, a pretty village with restaurants and amenities, is only 3 km away. We welcome children.

The house is laid out on two floors: the ground floor hosts a cosy dining area with an ancient log fireplace and a big glass table; a living room with another fireplace, a big library, sofa and Sat TV; a modern, well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, marble table, electric oven and gas hob/stove, fridge-freezer, toaster, coffee maker and all dining and cooking equipment.

The five bedrooms, each with private en-suite bathroom with shower, are on the first floor. There are 3 double rooms (Room with a view, Mansfield Park and Wuthering Heights) and 2 triple rooms (Jane Eyre and Barry Lyndon).

The garden with a court and 5 wood table and chairs, a barbecue and, of course, the swimming pool (10x7).

My family and I live in Tuscany and Umbria. When we come to Umbria, in our private portion of the house on the ground floor, we are happy to help you, discreetly, with everything you wish and sometimes we can cook for you and make you taste the delicious Umbrian cuisine. If what you're looking for is a holiday in total privacy then I will only receive you at your arrival and will be present when you leave… the rest of your stay you will be in total privacy.

About Gabriele Ungaro

We like to travel and not have a fixed home. Currently we live in Tuscany and Umbria. As soon as we have a free weekend, we go to find some new places in Italy and around the world.We do not like half-measures: in Umbria we live in an 18th century farmhouse built inside a forest; in Tuscany we live Inside the medieval walls of the beautiful Lucca, in the most famous street in the historic center. I am from Rome, my wife is from Florence; we have two girls who have learned from us the desire to travel and follow us in every new adventure. We speak 4 languages well enough and we appreciate the cuisine and culture of other countries. For this reason, guests who come here are always welcome

We are waiting for you!!

What makes this villa unique

If you are looking for an oasis of peace and quiet, a refuge from the noise and the frenetic pace of the city, if look around and see nothing but trees and hills that does not feel alone; if the sudden encounter with a fox or a deer, and the appearance of a hawk or an eagle above your heads still excites you, if this is your idea of a vacation, then you are in the right place. We are waiting for you!!

San Bartolomeo is also family friendly place:

We offer a number of facilities to meet the needs of very young children!

Our child-friendly facilities available at the farmhouse include: cot, potty, highchair, kettle, pushchair, dining options, television, DVD and books for children.

In the garden there is an area dedicated to children, including a small wooden house that have painted our girls.

Specify if you require a special diet (vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose-free; etc.) and what you don’t like, for example, garlic, onion, pepper, red pepper, wild boar, rabbit, etc.

Peace in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

Staying at San Bartolomeo is more than a holiday for it offers a truly authentic yet highly personal experience of Italy.

Yes, there is the beautiful, shady

Umbrian farmhouse with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside, the lure of the swimming pool. The peace of the shrub filled garden with well equipped play area. But it is the hospitality offered by Gabriele and Anna Ungaro that makes it really special. They are a discreet presence in the background, happy to give advice or help where needed. For for Gabriele to cook one of his delicious meals meals or provide cookery/Italian lessons. Their children equally helpful. Despite the lack of a downstairs cloakroom, we cannot recommend it too highly.

Although in a rural location, the casale of San Bartolomeo is only 3km from Marsciano, a pretty village with many shops and excellent local restaurants. Marsciano is in the middle of Umbria and an ideal base for day trips to all of Umbria’s most beautiful and famous ancient ‘cities of art’. Todi, Perugia, Assisi and Bevagna are a thirty-minute drive away, while Spoleto and Orvieto are about forty-five minutes away. Rome and Florence can be each reached in less than two hours.
