A HILLTOP SANCTUARY WITH A SUPERLATIVE VIEW. A place to re-charge one 's batteries and seriously consider whether or not the frenetic rhythms and frustrations of everyday life are worth it. In fact, the surrounding hills are not only alive to the sound of nature in harmony with itself, but also to the contented sighs of burnt out business men, harried media moguls and born-again creative people gratefully living in discreet and blissful anonymity. It is so NOT located along the Florence, Chianti, Cortona holy grail of a trail that one might find it hard to locate this fabulous rural niche set on the Tuscany/Umbria border where the local shops are the original and genuine article — i. e. traditional, fresh produce at the right price, simple and excellent trattorias and pizzerias at E. 15 per head and a way of life that hasn 't changed in centuries, but it is exactly the RIGHT PLACE TO BE for the world-weary soul… as those satisfied rumblings from many of the nearby hillsides would indicate. And yet, if one is able to tear oneself away from this captivating location, vicinity to Umbria and Tuscany 's more famous towns, is as follows: Montone (home of the Umbria Film festival) 15 mins, Citta di Castello 15 mins, Perugia and its very convenient airport just 40 mins, Assisi 45 mins, Cortona 30 mins, Montepulciano 60 mins, Siena 70 mins kms — all well within a radius of a 60 – 90 minute drive along beautiful, olive lined roads where road rage is unknown. In the more immediate vicinity the unspoilt village of Lugnano is 2.5 kms where there is a pizzeria and an agriturismo restaurant. The local shops in the village of Calzolaro are 7.5kms away where there are also a couple of excellent trattorias. Trestina a small town with all services and access to the E45 Rome-Cesena motorway is just 9 kms away. The house, beautifully and classically restored with a wonderful use of colour, light and spaces, can be moved into immediately. There are 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large sitting room with antique fireplace, a living room, dining room, kitchen and GORGEOUS covered, partially enclosed loggia for dining outside at all times of the year. The loggia which could be completely enclosed has a fireplace/barbecue and sink and is predisposed for central heating. There is a wonderful pool 16 metres long and finished with Travetine marble stone giving it the feel of a beautiful Roman bath, views that extend for hundreds of miles — literally as far as the eye can see — and 2.4 hectares of land with a large olive grove producing a fantastic high quality Umbrian olive oil. There is a vinyard which also produces a fine Umbrian Sangiovese red wine, and a seperate park of some 600 Umbrella pine trees making the grounds a real paradise. The house was completely restored just six years ago guaranteeing that all electric, hydraulic and heating systems are new and functional. There is also a laundry room and wine cellar on the ground floor. The house has all utilities attached
