Standing on a hill with sweeping views of Umbrian hills and the village of Monterchi, this traditional Tuscan farmhouse is a gem. There’s room for the whole family across three floors of homely living spaces, comfortable bedrooms and cosy nooks and crannies, with an adjoining apartment available if needed (only rented with the main house).
It’s the outside space that will seduce you; leap into the infinity pool and swim amongst the hills, dry off under a pergola of sweet scented jasmine and take in the glorious framed views of Monterchi. Explore terraced gardens full of wisteria, lavender and rose arches; crisscrossing footpaths lead the way to secret shady spots.
Whip up al fresco meals in the summer kitchen (there’s a pizza oven too) and eat under the stars – having the pool house to hand is a huge boon for big outdoor dinners. Stunning medieval Monterchi and Piero della Francesca’s famous artwork is just three kilometres away.
