Casa Cielo
BORDER BETWEEN TUSCANY AND UMBRIA, ITALY
 

Casa Cielo is perched on a high vantage point overlooking the Tuscan and Umbrian hills, rolling farmland and two castles. Its spectacular location suggests that the house - classic stone "casa colonica" built around a three story tower - played a strategic role in relation to the two medieval castles that it overlooks.

 

One can imagine a very colorful history for Casa Cielo, which must have been a silent observer of Medici led incursions, papal armies and the generations of peasants that worked the castle lands that supported the gentry. Today, it offers a serene country retreat and a perfect base from which to view the infinitely rich hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria, many of which are within 45 minutes. Even closer, the Etruscan era town of Cortona and the Roman playground of Lake Trasimeno lie 25 minutes to the West. All shopping and basic services are within 8 kilometers of the house.

Out of doors, there are eating and lounging terraces with spectacular views, and a separate barbecue area. Winding stone pathways lead to the private swimming pool, located just above the house.

The house has been divided into two separate floors, each with country kitchen, outdoor eating terrace and living room with open fireplace. It can sleep up to 9-10 people. On the ground floor there are two double bedrooms with one bathroom, while on the upper floor there are two double bedrooms (one of which includes a separate single bed for flexibility in sleeping arrangements), one single bedroom and two bathrooms. Wrought iron canopy beds in the master bedrooms and antique furniture throughout the house give a sense of luxury.

The romantic master bedroom on the upper floor is located one level up in the third floor tower, with windows on two sides, offering a magnificent  private retreat from which to view the shifting light effects of the countryside.
