The farmhouse is located near the top of Parco Monte Castelluccio at a height of 700m above sea level. There are breathtaking views over Lake Trasimeno and Tuscany from all around the property. The house is situated less than ½ mile from the border between Umbria and Tuscany and is perfectly positioned for visiting the major tourist sites in both regions. The house benefits from air conditioning in the bedrooms and a high speed WiFi internet that enables streaming.
Our relationship with our next door neighbour Paolo, the owner of the Hotel Villa Sensi, is paramount for both the wellbeing of both our guests and his. We ask therefore that our guests respect the norms of good public behaviour and keep the outside noise to respectable levels during the hours between 10 pm and 7 am.
Francesca and I met while I was on a two year secondment in Rome. We fell in love and the two years quickly became ten until I was transferred back to the United Kingdom. However we never lost contact with Italy and became very enthusiastic about buying a house in Umbria after a holiday with friends there in 2013. We were taken aback by the beauty of the area and the amazing views to be had everywhere.
We found this wonderful farmhouse, Podere Nuovo, in November of that year and then moved heaven and earth to buy it in May 2014. As both Francesca and my kids have Italian nationality it seems fitting that we have a home in Italy where we can all take family and friends.
