Welcome to our house in Umbria.
It is a truly comfortable family home, well equipped with nice china and glass and linen. The layout works well with plenty of space for living in.
We built our house in the middle of our olive trees we have the most amazing and lovely views, the view changes all the time depending on the light and the time of day, it is a view which is never the same. While the house fits into the landscape the interior is modern with an open style and plenty of space. The house is built on the side of a hill and has 4 levels with the living area being in the center there is a modern, spacious and well fitted kitchen at one end, the dinning room is in the middle of the room and the sitting room at the other end. on the top floor of the house is the main bedroom this has a large bathroom, dressing room and a private terrace, a great place to have early morning coffee or drinks at sunset, it looks over the olive trees and the pool, the view of the landscape from here is wonderful and always changing depending on the time of the day. All bedrooms are well equipped with comfortable beds and have there own shower rooms. The pool is very smart surrounded by grey tiles with a dark grey liner with the sun shining it is the most wonderful colour and matches the style of the house, it is by the house but in a secluded spot with a large sun terrace to one side. There is a large roller blind that can be used when it is very hot to give shade. The mature garden has lots of sitting places so you can enjoy sun or shade throughout the day. It is a really special private place. The pool is closed at the end of August. If a request is made to keep it open in September this can be arranged but there would be a cost for it. Please note: Whilst children are welcome we feel the house is not suitable for children under 5 years old.

Wine: there is a good selection in the supermarkets but there are many vineyards near Monte Castello, (details are in the house), it is fun to go and taste! Montefalco is the centre of the famous Umbiran wine area a lovely hill top town about one hour’s drive from the house.
Festivals: many festivals happen throughout the year from Cantina Aperto in the spring (when you can go and taste wine which is usually served with finger food or a main dish - a good way to see the different vineyards) to local village festivals. These run in turn with each village hosting the festival - you can eat, the food is delicious and all cooked by local people, you can dance to the excellent bands or just have a drink and watch. Whatever you decide it is fun. In August Monte Castello has a medieval dinner.
Perugia, Orvieto and Spoletto all have jazz festivals through the summer.
