Holiday Rental House
The house, founded by the Romans, was completely modified in the late ' 700 to become the residence of the Menicucci family, which was the landowner of this area on behalf of the Papal State. In the late ' 800 and beginning of ' 900, it was gradually abandoned and it became the home for some local farmers. The actual owners purchased it in the 70s, and they completely restored the estate, maintaining the taste and characteristics of the past: stone walls, handmade brick loggia, perfectly preserved Roman well and stucco decorations on the turret. The tiled swimming pool, built in 2007, makes the house ideal for the warm and sunny summers that characterize these areas.

The tiled swimming pool, built in 2007, makes the house ideal for the warm and sunny summers that characterize these areas. Surrounded on three sides by land, it is a place of extreme relaxation and serenity, despite being just a few kilometers far from many places to visit like Assisi, Greccio, Perugia, the Marmore falls, Narni, Todi, Gubbio and Rome, which is 1 hour and 15 minutes far by car or 55 minutes far by train from Paignton rail station. The house is divided into two apartments: the rent one, on two floors, has two bedrooms on the second floor (in the turret) and a third bedroom on the first floor where there are also the bathroom, hallway, the kitchen and the living room. The bathroom, visible in the photo, will be completely renovated this spring with the replacement of the tank for the shower. The fireplace, on the living room, is normally used in winter. Separate access and private parking within the estate are available. In the external, there is a garden with a fountain, a second yard with barbecue and table for 8 persons and, of course, the 10x4 pool, depth 1.45 to 1.70. The pool maintenance is on responsibility of the two owners who live in the second half of the house and will be available in case of need or advice on places to visit or restaurants to try. The estate also produces extra virgin olive oil and seasonal fruits. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------home, founded by the Romans, was completely changed at the end of ' 700 as family farmhouse Menicucci, that area was latifondiera on behalf of the Papal States.

The tiled pool built in 2007 has made it ideal for warm, sunny summers then that characterize these areas.

What can I say? A most amazing place! The REAL Italy! Very rural, so needed a car but so, so beautiful. The villa was steeped in history but also had all the modern facilities needed. The only downside was lack of internet facilities. The pool was amazing and the views...to die for... The owners lived adjacent to our accommodation and were amazing, ftiendly hosts. They provided all the basic foodstuffs etc on arrival. They regularly bought us homegrown fresh fruit and veg and catered for all our needs despite being unable to speak a word of English! They even invited us into their home for dinner one evening..which was wonderful. All in all a truly great experience.
