Casa Peschino, Tuscany
A four bedroom house that sleeps eight. Peschino – Little Peach Tree – sits on the lower slopes of a quiet, wooded farming valley that is on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. It is approached by a kilometre of farm track through fields of sunflowers, tobacco, trees and wild flowers. Just 3 kilometres away is the border with Umbria, where the old custom house still stands. The house is completely private and not over-looked.
Entrance to the villa is from the drive, which opens onto the ground floor. Immediately to the left, you will find the kitchen; well-equipped and spacious, the kitchen has a five-ring gas hob, electric oven, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave and bread-maker, plenty of cupboard space and work tops. A doorway leads to the dining room, which extends over the width of the house and has French windows at the front and back – the large dining table can accommodate twelve people. A doorway, at the far side of the dining room, leads to a utility area with washer-dryer and a WC. At the back of the kitchen is a comfortable sitting room with sofas, armchairs and a TV. From here, there are French windows that open out to the back garden.
