A glassed in walkway leads to the second bedroom that also has an en suite bathroom.

      The second, smaller, guest cottage has a sitting/dining/kitchen and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom.

      In addition there is a fully equipped gym with sauna, massage room and bathroom with adjacent laundry; this area could be transformed into a two bedroom apartment if extra accommodation was required.

      A fourth building is currently used as a studio and also has a small workshop. The guest cottages and studio are at some distance from the main house and are therefore very private and each of them have external sitting/dining areas. Both the main house and the larger guest cottage have stone built barbeques and there is a poolside summer kitchen, also with barbeque, that has all that one requires for cooking meals for family and friends.

      The buildings all have heating of various kinds; gas fired central heating, wood burning stoves and air conditioning units that both heat and cool the various rooms. All of the windows are double- glazed and each roof is well insulted ensuring that the properties can be utilised in all four seasons. Each of the houses have intercoms and the entry gates can be opened from just about anywhere on the property which also has an alarm.

      The properties sit in one hectare of beautifully maintained gardens that are studded with a variety of mature trees and plants, stone built holding walls and numerous places to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. The view is far-reaching and stunning. The tiled infinity swimming pool measures 5.6 x 10.6 metres. The underground pool room has a bathroom and dressing room and the actual pipe work etc. is cleverly housed in a spacious access tunnel meaning that any maintenance work can be carried out with ease.

      A beautiful property that has belonged to the caring same owners since the 70's, meticulously maintained throughout with mature gardens and a stunning view of the surrounding countryside.

    Local information

    • Niccone Valley, close to Cortona and Lake Trasimeno

    Additional information

    • The ‘Niccone Valley', or the ‘Valle del Niccone' is where Tuscany meets Umbria. The northern valley is mainly in Tuscany, topped by five ancient castles or fortified villages, all standing opposite their Umbrian counterparts which lie on the southern valley hills and all built over a 1,000 years of Papal and Renaissance history. Today, the 11 miles of the Niccone valley, which includes the Val di Pierle, is dotted with restored private farmhouses, luxury villas and apartments, all popular with discerning visitors. The villages of Lisciano Niccone – Umbria – and Mercatale di Cortona – Tuscany sit at the western most extreme of this wide valley. A drive east along the valley road gives access to Preggio, once the medieval seat of power for the region and eventually to the village of Niccone, standing in the mouth of the Niccone Valley. A short few miles away to the west is the site of the Battle of Trasimeno – where Hannibal routed the Roman legions in 217BC. The area bore witness to one of histories bloodiest ever battles and even today, the stain of this incredible event can be felt amongst the hills and valleys.
