Spacious 3 bedroom traditional farmhouse in stunning countryside, close to amenities.

Casa Tersalle is a 300-year-old 'casa colonica' - a traditional Italian farmhouse - offering spacious and comfortable accommodation in a still unspoilt part of Italy. It forms part of a small, quiet hamlet and is situated in the beautiful countryside of northern Umbria, close to the border with Tuscany and within easy reach of all amenities. There are numerous small mediaeval hilltop towns to explore in the vicinity as well as large towns and cities such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Siena, Florence and Rome, all within easy driving distance. The nearest towns are Citta' di Castello (Umbria) and Sansepolcro (Tuscany), both a 15-20 minute drive. The nearest mainline station is Arezzo, 30 mins by car, which has direct connections to Florence, Rome and Bologna.
The house is available for short or long-term rental and we are happy to discuss a reduction on our prices for longer periods.

We, Rob and Jane, the New Zealand/English owners, bought the property in 1988 and then had it carefully restored, with an eye to retaining the original Umbrian farmhouse character: ceilings with exposed wooden beams, tiled floors, wooden shutters, open fireplace and woodburning stoves are among the features. At the same time we incorporated modern facilities and comforts in the kitchen and bathrooms. All the rooms of the accommodation are light, spacious and fully furnished in a simple but comfortable manner.

The accommodation is on 2 floors and offers flexibility for different sized groups (up to 8 people). The entrance to the house is up a short flight of steps with handrails and welcomes you into the large traditional Umbrian kitchen where there is an open fireplace and a woodburning stove. As well as the traditional features, a modern extensively equipped fitted kitchen area has been incorporated with worktop, fridge/freezer and gas cooker. The kitchen leads through into the separate dining room and then through to the living room, which has superb views of the surrounding countryside. In this room there are two comfortable sofas and a cosy woodburning stove. The main bedroom, with the same magnificent views, is next to the living room and the bathroom, with WC, handbasin, bidet and bath with shower over.
On the upper floor are two further bedrooms, one with en-suite WC and handbasin.
All rooms have central heating which, along with wood, is charged according to usage.
