With cultural, rural and edible stuff happening in all directions and layered views of distant hills, this is an area adored by many. You’ll feel private here in a green-shuttered stone farmhouse with only a handful of neighbours. Outside, stone steps lead up to two apartments: Ulivo on the first floor and Quercia on the second. With its large fireplace, chestnut beams and original features Ulivo has the most character, but both offer complete comfort, light, bright living spaces and well-equipped kitchens. Ulivo’s bedrooms are small yet thoughtfully furnished while Quercia’s have more space, but all have comfy beds, fine Busatti bedding and excellent shower rooms with modern fittings. With plenty of games, toys and books to keep everyone occupied, both apartments are perfect for families, and the whole villa can be rented for a bigger get together. Take a dip in the saltwater infinity pool before whipping up something with a Mediterranean twang – lovely to eat on the terrace with its huge views of the Tiber valley, or wander down to the nearby restaurant.
