Ca’ di Bracco, Umbria & Tuscany

Why stay at Ca di Bracco?

A beautiful farmhouse with swimming pool on the Tuscany-Umbria border, this holiday villa sleeps ten. There is an adjoining tobacco drying tower, where the owners live with its own separate garden and entrance. The villa is completely private, and is not overlooked by any other properties.

There are lovely views across the stunning landscape of the Niccone Valley and the countryside of Tuscany and Umbria. The swimming pool and main garden areas are for the sole use of guests.

Ca’ di Bracco is on two floors with three double bedrooms (two of which are en-suite) and two twin bedrooms. The villa is laid out so that all the bedrooms are near a bathroom.


The fully-equipped kitchen leads through an archway to the dining room, and out to a large patio shaded with wisteria. The shaded patio has a big wooden table and barbecue, making it perfect for al fresco dining and sitting out on warm summer evenings.

You will find an en-suite double bedroom and twin bedroom with access to a bathroom on this floor.


Stairs lead from the kitchen up to the living room with wood burner, sofas, easy chairs, books, satellite TV, DVD player and DVD collection. The living room can also be accessed from a small loggia with outside steps and a wicker sofa. There are two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and another twin room on this level; the last two bedrooms share a bathroom off the same corridor. The property has four acres of land, mostly wild. Between the villa and the swimming pool is a large lawned area with a small wooded area to one side. The swimming pool is surrounded by a dense bay hedge and is gated to for the safety of children.

There is plenty of pool furniture for the use of guests, including a barbecue and table tennis. In the appropriate seasons you can soak in the wood-fired hot-tub and gaze at the thousands of stars visible in the countryside darkness. There is about a kilometre of gravel road to the main valley road. The last third of a kilometre to the villa is used only by residents and guests of Ca’ di Bracco, and the very occasional farm vehicle. In 5 minutes you can be at the small village of Spedalicchio which has a small – but well supplied – grocery shop and a bar. A ten minute drive takes you to the market town of Umbertide, on the river Tiber, with a lively weekly market, and supermarkets and other shops. There are many day trips possible from Ca’ di Bracco to the surrounding historic and cultural centres of Umbria and Tuscany.

Cortona is a thirty-five minute drive, and within an hour you can visit Lake Trasimeno, Perugia, Deruta, Assisi, Todi, Arezzo, Sansepolcro, Gubbio, Montepulciano and other hill towns. Orvieto and Siena are under two hours drive. Florence is around two hours by car or just over an hour on the fastest train (station 35 minutes away).
