Our lovingly restored 17C stone villa offers breathtaking magical views & tranquility set in beautiful mature gardens - wafting scents of roses, lavender, jasmine, rosemary and herbs. 5 acre grounds merge into panoramic countryside - fortified hilltop villages, castles, olive groves, vineyards, chestnut, oak and cypress woods, figs, sunflowers, poppies, corn, tobacco - enjoying total relaxation, peace and privacy without isolation. (village General Store 3kms). Magnificent 14mX6m infinity-edge swimming pool surrounded by lemons, Cypress and Olive groves with stunning views south from beautiful landscaped terraces across valley to the lush green Umbrian hills, THE POOL COMPLEX Opens late in APRIL and closes late in OCTOBER. Magnificent 14X6 mt pool surrounded by 350 sq. mtrs of terraces, walkways, flower beds, cypress and olive trees. THE POOLHOUSE has a shower/ WC, Summer Kitchen and large shaded terrace, table and chairs, Barbecues and Pizza Forno, from which to enjoy al-fresco meals with stunning views across the valley. Mediaeval Lippiano Castle and the lush green Umbrian Hills form a backdrop. We installed the finest pool equipment from the USA made by Culligan. The Diatomea Filter(Fullers Earth)filters out all particles over 0.50 microns. (The average Sand filter, filters out particles over 30 microns, making ours 60X more efficient) The Chlorination and Ph levels are computer controlled. Our groundsman cleans the pool and checks water quality weekly. An electrically controlled pool cover for insulation and safety is installed. The 14 mtr infinity edge allows you to feel as if you are swimming in the valley whilst listening to your favourite music from the outdoor speakers. THE CANTINA. The Cantina can be rented as an additional facility which sleeps another 4 people. The flat is fully equipped with a kitchenette and bathroom. The sleeping area has a king size double bed and there is a double sofa bed in the lounge area. (Please view video) The cantina is NEVER rented independently. THE VILLAGE. Monterchi, its name derived from 'MONS HERCULIS' (hill of Hercules) whose cult was celebrated here in ancient Etruscan and Roman periods, is home of the famous Renaissance fresco 'The Madonna del Parto' (The Madonna of Childbirth) The mother of Piero della Francesca, the painter of the fresco, was born in Monterchi and the village became famous when in 1888 the fresco, painted in 1446 and considered one of Piero's finest masterpieces, was uncovered in the chapel of the cemetery. This restored fresco is now well displayed in the old village schoolhouse. SIGHTSEEING: Podere Borgacciano is a 'Springboard' for sightseeing. Florence (130 kms); Siena (90 kms);San Gimingnano (110 kms.) Assisi (75 kms) Pisa (150 kms); Perugia (65 kms); Arezzo (30 kms) (all distances approx.) are within easy reach. Rome, Bologna, and the Chianti wine countryside are within one to two hours travel. Both the Mediterranean and Adriatic coasts are no more than 2 hrs easy travel. Local pearls such as Sansepolcro, Citta di Castello, Gubbio, Urbino, Anghiari, Caprese Michaelangelo (the artist's birthplace) and many more, abound with culture, art treasures, music and folk festivals.

I had the absolute pleasure of holidaying at this most magnificent house. Romantic and picturesque doesn't even come close to describing this place. I'm a fairly seasoned traveller and have stayed in many places around the world but the views, ambience and utter chic charm...More
