Casa Tersalle - Traditional Farmhouse in stunning Umbrian countryside, close to amenities


Details of the Farmhouse

Casa Tersalle is a 300-year old 'casa colonica' (traditional farmhouse), part of a quiet hamlet situated in stunning countryside in the northern part of Umbria, 2 kms from the border with Tuscany. The other house in the hamlet is occupied by a friendly local Italian family who farm the surrounding land. The house is easily reached from several airports: Perugia, Bologna, Florence, Pisa, Ancona, Rome. The nearest mainline station is Arezzo. Public transport is limited so a car is essential.

Casa Tersalle is suitable for 2-8 people and offers flexibility for different sized groups. It's a single unit and offers exclusive use however many people are staying. The accommodation is on two floors, with one bedroom on the ground floor and two on the upper floor. For 2-4 people, the upper floor is closed off but an extra room can be made available on request for a small extra charge.

Outside there is a large, sunny terrace where you can relax and admire the magnificent views. There is also a small garden, plunge pool, garden furniture & barbecue.

Rob and Jane, the resident New Zealand/English owners, live in separate accommodation (the former animal stalls under the house!) and, while not intruding on guests' privacy, are available to provide friendly help and advice if required.
