Overall Property Description: In the heart of Italy, Umbria is undoubtedly a strategic position for tourism, situated between Rome and Florence, surrounded by regions with great attractions. The Umbria region is coveted by those seeking to live an experience, whether seasonal or permanent. An Umbrian adventure can span from nightlife in the region’s student-filled capital Perugia to a peaceful stroll through 2700-year-old rural villages. Assisi is one of Umbria’s most magnificent hill towns, with buildings that glow pink in the sunset. Gubbio, a stately medieval stronghold, and Todi, once called ‘the most liveable city in the world’. In the southeast, Spoleto attracts art patrons to an international festival, Orvieto’s cathedral wows millions of visitors. Pork from the Norcia area is so well respected, quality pork butchers throughout Italy are known as Norcineria. The tartufo (truffle) finds its way onto every menu, gracing the local strangozzi or umbricelli pastas. Orvieto’s high quality wines and the Sagrantino of Montefalco have made their way onto tables around the world. Ground and exteriors On a hilltop in the Niccone Valley is located enchanting and marvelously restored hamlet called Borgo di Bastia Creti. With 360 views of the valley the Borgo is surrounded by forests, fig, and pomegranate and olive trees. The Borgo Bastia Creti is divided into 4 buildings: one for Olivi and Club House; one for Cipressi and Ginestre; one for Cottage and one for Limonaia. Several of the original dwellings, now individual cottages in the gardens or large apartments adjacent to the courtyard of the hamlet offer very spacious accommodation decorated in elegant, classic country style. Decorative tiles, some of them antiques, have been used in the large kitchens and open fireplaces provide a focal point in the sitting rooms. Each bedroom has beautifully appointed, spacious en suite facilities and each property has wonderful views. At guests' disposal: Wi-Fi internet connection available. The original chapel has been converted into a magnificent dining and drawing room - Club Bastia - for guests, with outside grassy terrace with tables and chairs for dining al fresco. A gentle stroll leads to the pool tucked into a panoramic grassy terrace and there is plenty of space and shady and peaceful corners in the extensive gardens for all guests. All guests have an access to a large pool 16x8 mts depth 1-1.4 mts open from May to October, a tennis court (free of charge), a sauna located near the pool ( to pay on the spot) and the Club House, where guests can reserve a delicious home cooked breakfast, lunch or dinner.
