Il Casale di Mele
Italy » Umbria » Piedicolle
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms

Secluded yet easily accessible, Il Casale di Mele is the perfect setting, providing the tranquility of the countryside but within easy reach of E45 which leads to many famous hill towns as well as parts of Tuscany. Just 5 years old, the farmhouse was built with authentic regional materials including antique doors, heavy chestnut beams, hand forged ironwork and antique stone fireplaces. This home was used as an occasional vacation home until we bought it recently so it has never before been used as a rental until this year. It is being completely redecorated and newly furnished before Il Casale welcomes it’s first guests. The farmhouse sleeps 6 plus 1.

Typical of country villas, there is no central air conditioning, however the thick stone walls and screened windows allow the villa to remain cool even during the hottest months of the year. The screened windows allow you to enjoy the fresh country air with scents of lavender, jasmine, and wild flowers wafting from room to room.

Complimentary for every booking:
We will have a welcome gift basket upon arrival.
