villa quercia


Relax in our beautiful house located on the outskits of a tranquil and very traditional village close to the medieval town of  Città di Castello in Umbria.  Originally a Tobacco Tower the property has been lovingly restored to a very high standard retaining many of the original features. 
 
The property is situated on a hillside, and hence parking and entrance to Villa Quercia is from the top - upper floor through the covered terrace which is surrounded by climbing roses and large terracotta pots.  The covered terrace is really an outdoor sitting room with comfy sofa and armchairs, the perfect spot for a glass or two at any point of the day in the shade and  with spectacular views of the Umbrian countryside.  


From here large doors lead into the upstairs sitting room which is in the original tobacco tower and hence has very high ceilings and is lovely and bright.  A set of doors lead to the two  master bedrooms with large double beds and both with their own bathrooms.  One of these masters has its own private terrace again with breathtaking view and a private shower room with walk in shower,  the other master is part of a suite comprising of bedroom, bathroom and dressing area.  


From the sitting room stairs lead to the lower floor where you will find a further two bedrooms each with two single beds (both can be made into doubles) and again each with own lovely bathroom with walk in shower.

There is a large open-plan kitchen, with dining area and lounging area also situated on the lower floor with doors leading out onto a fantastic terrace for dining and barbecue.


One terrace down from the dining terrace is the fantastic, very large 16m x 6m  saline, private swimming pool which is also heated and surrounded by lovely gardens with fabulous aromatic plants including a row of lavender stretching the entire lenght of the pool and  herbs such as sage, rosemary and thyme.  This area also hosts sunloungers with individual sun shades.  There is plenty of seating in the sun but also in the shade with a lot of natural shade provided by trees and shrubs and there is the ping-pong table on one of the terraces should you be bored of the pool.  Villa Quercia provides the perfect location for relaxation as well as for seeing the sights with Cortona, Citta' di Castello, Umbertide, Montone, Gubbio and many more within 25minutes to 45 minutes drive away.
