It stands in a silent secluded position on a hill 500 m above sea level with an amazing view over the immense green tableland that stretches to the horizon. The property lies within a recently renovated agricultural construction, composed of a main building and three annexes, all finely furnished and air conditioned, permitting large groups and families to have their own private space while, at the same time, sharing a common area consisting of a cosy, rustic living room with fully-equipped kitchen.

Its position guarantees authentic moments in the beautiful countryside surrounding it and is, at the same time, perfect as a departure point for adventuring out as it is just 8 km from the A1 motorway exit of Fabro and so within easy reach of the most beautiful localities of Tuscany and neighbouring Umbria.
