NEWLY RESTORED VILLA, OWNED BY ONE OF THE MOST ILLUSTRIOUS FAMILES IN THE AREA – THEY BUILT THE LOCAL CHURCH, 600 YEARS AGO ! HERE YOU EXPERIENCE THE PURE HISTORY OF UMBRIA !
With WiFi, 2 fully fitted kitchens + a large public pool in the country, 5 kms away, with a restaurant. A beautiful walk !
My place is close to art and culture, great views, restaurants and dining, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the light, the comfy bed, and the kitchen. My place is good for families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
Unique rock pool 5 mts by 4 mts, fed from natural fountain in the nearby woods. It is not a clear water pool because the fresh water oxidises as soon as the sun shines on it. This is a totally natural and harmless process. Indeed, the Romans frequently bathed in green water because it is very good for the skin. The rock pool is continuously replenished with fresh water. So, enjoy living like a Romans did !
Public swimming pool with restaurant 5 kms from Rock Pool Cottage, in country – a beautiful walk or car drive. Daily rate for pool is 5 euros or 25 euros/week. The rate includes everything….sun-lounger, brolly etc.

A SMALL CORNER OF THE VILLA IS NOT PART OF THIS HOLIDAY RENTAL…….
PLEASE NOTE THAT ONE SMALL CORNER OF THE VILLA, NOT INCLUDED IN THIS HOLIDAY RENTAL, BELONGS TO ANOTHER FAMILY, WHO USE IT SOMETIMES AT WEEK/ENDS. THEY DO NOT LIVE HERE. THEY ARE VERY QUIET AND HAVE NO ACCESS TO THE LAND SURROUNDING THE VILLA. THEY HAVE ONLY A SMALL PATIO IN FRONT OF THEIR INDEPENDENT ENTRANCE ON ONE SIDE OF THE FRONT OF THE VILLA. HENCE, ONLY DOGS THAT ARE HUMAN FRIENDLY CAN BE ALLOWED TO WANDER UNATTENDED AROUND THE UNFENCED GROUNDS. HOWEVER, THERE MAY BE SHEEP OR COWS IN SURROUNDING FIELDS. SO, IF YOUR DOG IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED WITH FARM ANIMALS, HE SHOULD BE ACCOMPANIED OR TETHERED. THERE IS A LARGE ANIMAL ENCLOSURE WITH SHADE THAT IS SECURE. THEREFORE, YOUR DOGS CAN BE KEPT SAFELY EITHER OUTSIDE OR INSIDE THE HOUSE.
NOTE THE ROCK POOL IS TOTALLY ORGANIC…
I should draw your attention to the fact that the rock pool is divided into 2 sections:the 1st section is where the totally fresh water is but it is the smallest ie 1/3 of the size of the 5X4 structure. Just 1 person could sit here.the 2nd section is “more organic” looking ie not clear water.The fresh water constantly runs so the overall water is constantly replenished, albeit slowly.In the old days, this pool would have been used for keeping containers of food in to keep cool. And for animals to drink from. However, coming from London, I used to swim in the famous Hampstead Heath Ladies Pond, which was also “organic” looking. So, when you finished your swim, you would get out with a film of organic matter on you, which is excellent for your skin.This is what made me decide to present the “rock pool”. A totally natural experience!There is a wet room opposite the rock pool, so you can instantly shower, if you do like organic matter on your skin!
PUBLIC POOL + RESTAURANT NEARBY…

La casa è accogliente e fornita di tutto il necessario, compreso un locale lavanderia/stireria. I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili e ci hanno fatto trovare un cestino con prodotti locali. Il terreno che circonda la casa è un uliveto molto grande. Il giardino a ridosso della casa è ben tenuto e fiorito. Magari sarebbe bene organizzare una doccia esterna vicino alle sedie a sdraio. La proprietà è isolata e questo è da considerare nella scelta. Per noi andava bene. Unico neo: non eravamo stati avvertiti dall’Agenzia che ci sono dei vicini (persone peraltro molto gentili che vivono nello stesso fabbricato), poichè abbiamo cani che avremmo voluto lasciare liberi. Infatti nelle mail di richiesta avevamo specificao che cercavamo una casa solo per noi.
