Casale San Paolo is a beautiful old farmhouse with tobacco tower, outbuilding and pool, with unmatched views of Reschio Castle and the Niccone Valley. It sits in approx. 4.5 hectares of land, and has been restored to the highest standards, by local craftsmen using local materials.
Casale San Paolo is just inside Umbria, on the border with Tuscany. The house is situated half way down the Niccone Valley, which was described by the Sunday Telegraph as having ‘more beauty per square mile than almost any other part of Europe’.
The house sits in ca. 4.5 hectares of land, with gardens criss-crossed with paths and dotted with hammocks and places to relax. There are fruit trees, cypresses, age old oak trees and some 30 olive trees. The infinity pool is above the house, and has an extraordinary view of two castles across the valley.
Exploring from Casale San Paolo is easy. You can drive in any direction and discover a stunning village or town. The medieval hilltop village of Preggio is only five minutes away by car, while the nearest market town, Umbertide, is a fifteen-minute drive. There are fabulous restaurants within fifteen minutes’ drive.
The main house has an enormous open plan ground floor with a vast living room, hall, and snooker room. There are four bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms. There is a beautiful fully fitted kitchen with its own terrace, and a double height living room upstairs with a gallery and fireplace.
Down the hill from the main house is an annexe building used for storage. The owners have also created a guest apartment there with its own bedroom, bathroom and terrace.
Further accommodation can be found in the converted tobacco tower with a large bedroom, bathroom with tub, lounge with kitchen corner, and a terrace with a boules court. Both enjoy beautiful views over the valley.
Both the main house and the tobacco tower can be enlarged.
