Central Italy - Umbria . Rural, but convenient!

The Apartment is on the ground floor of a restored 16 century farmhouse, which also includes owner's residence and a small cottage. It is situated on the edge of a quiet Umbrian village (40 minutes from Perugia) and faces a large garden looking south. The view is across olive groves, grape vines and farmland of the Umbrian countryside, to the 1000 m high Monte Martana. The altitude of Collesecco, at some 490m (1,500 feet), tempers the extremes of the Italian summer, whilst in the winter the house is sheltered from the north winds.

Phyllis Thompson, who owns the house, is permanently resident and the house and grounds are well cared for and welcoming.

The apartment sleeps up to 4. It has a large open-plan kitchen, dining/sitting room with double sofa bed and double glazed doors onto its own covered terrace running the length of the property. There is a twin bedroom with en-suite bath and shower room.

Both the the apartment and the cottage are well furnished, with all the necessities. Central heating and glass fronted woodburning stoves ensure comfort during the winter.

The village of Collesecco, although small, has a good selection of shops for day-to-day needs. These include a small, very well-stocked, supermarket, a first class butcher, a baker who bakes on the premises, several small clothes shops, post office, service station (all fuels), electrical supplies and repair shop, and a car repair garage. There are also two bars and two restaurants. About 4km (2.5miles) down hill is the small town of Bastardo which has a more comprehensive range of shops and services and a weekly market. Other good restaurants and pizzerias are nearby.

Collesecco is ideally suited for the exploration of central Italy. We are half way between Rome and Florence and at the centre of a ring of medieval towns (Assisi, Spello, Spoleto, Todi and Perugia). Perugia airport is currently serviced directly from London by Ryanair.
