IL CASALE

The Farmhouse

“Le Burgne” is a marvellous farmhouse from the 800’s positioned on the Umbra hillside in an enviable position on the border between Umbria and Tuscany. Overlooking the High Tiber Valley at 500m asl, it dominates the entire valley: from Città di Castello, Monte S. Maria Tiberina, Anghiari, Citerna and as far as Monterchi in Toscany. The building has been recently renovated, keeping intact the fascination of the main house, the external architectural structure has remained unchanged, as has the interior, characterised by stone walls, wooden beams and original floors. The stone entrance has an antique wood burning oven, still in working order, a symbol of the long lost rural culture. On the ground floor, where previously were the stalls, is a large living room with two brick arches and a stone and terracotta fireplace. On the ground floor there is also a kitchen, the reception, a bar and two bathrooms (one of which has access for disabled .) On the first floor there are five spacious double rooms (all with bathroom and the possibility of spare bed or bunk beds) and a reading corner.

The Park

The park (8000 sm. circa) has a pine wood, a picnic area with tables and chairs, a barbecue for the guests to use and a lake with water flowers. The exterior complex has a bowling camp, volley ball and five a side football pitch and a children’s play area with swings and slides. Down a series of stone steps there is the spacious terrace with a panoramic view (overlooking the splendid Umbro Tuscany countryside), and the salt water swimming pool with water massage. The farmhouse is part of 21ettari circa farmland where vineyards ,olive plants, chestnut trees, fruit trees and sheep and goats are taken care of by the owner. The red and white wine produced is of excellent quality as is the oil and honey. For those who wish to “be at one with nature” it is possible, in the autumn, to take part in the grape harvest and the harvest of chestnuts and olives. On request we organise trips to the surrounding areas and woods to search for mushrooms and truffles ( of which the area is rich) and excursions on mountain bike. Three km from the farm is a splendid 6-hole golf course and a well equipped stables, these properties, however, do not belong to us. The Upper Tiber Valley is rich in artistic and architectural beauties: Città di Castello, San Sepolcro, (birth place of Piero della Francesco), Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, and Gubbio are all easily reached from the farm, as are the surrounding characteristic medieval villages: Monterchi (home to the famous “Madonna del Parto”) Citerna,Montone, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Anghiari and Pietralunga.
