Located in the Upper Valley of the Tiber on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, the distinctive historic town center of Umbertide is still enclosed by old medieval walls in the stretches that run alongside the waterways. The uncontaminated valley features green hills covered in vineyards and olive-groves as well as woods of oak and chestnut trees.
Dimora il Riccio is situated at the top of a stretch of high ground in a truly enchanting position thanks to the beautiful countryside and panoramic views of the neighboring hills and the valley. It is reached by driving along around 2 Km of dirt road which is suitable for any type of car.
The property consists of two farmhouses which are in close proximity despite being independent of each other where a group of people, friends or relatives, can spend an intelligent vacation in privacy whilst enjoying the pleasure of being together.
A pleasant private swimming pool with design furnishings is located in the spacious and convenient out door area along with several places where guests can relax.
The two units also have covered porches furnished with tables and chairs, as well as lounges.
The indoor areas are furnished with rustic and elegant pieces that fit in well with the original architecture. The properties offer numerous amenities: private parking for 5 cars, satellite TV with SKY package, WI FI coverage of the outdoor areas and spaces, portable Bluetooth Speaker, CD player, barbecue, wood-burning oven, hairdryer in each bathroom, three refrigerators, American coffee machine, mocha coffee pot and capsule/pod coffee maker, toaster, microwave, washing machine and two dishwashers.
It is possible to book a chef, cleaning service and additional linen changes.
