Casa Peschino, Tuscany

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.

From the back of the dining room, is a set of stairs that lead up to a second sitting room with sofas, easy-chairs and a large wood-burner in the fireplace. At the front end of this room, is a door leading onto a small loggia with external steps leading down to the garden and pool area. A double, en-suite bedroom comes directly off the upper sitting room, while the hallway on the opposite side has two twin bedrooms that share a second shower room. A second passageway leads to a bathroom with bath-tub and shower, and a second double bedroom.

All the bedrooms have beautiful views over the surrounding fields and wooded hillsides.
Outside, is a stone pizza oven, BBQ and outdoor dining furniture.The pool is 10m5m and has a thermal cover, which extends the swimming season; it has a paved surround and sits upon a grassy terrace and there are sun-loungers along the perimeter. The garden is planted with shrubs and flowers, and has lovely views along the valley. The Umbrian town of Trestina is 15-minutes’ drive by car and has shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The medieval walled Tuscan town of Cortona is a 30-minute drive. There are villages and restaurants within 10-minutes’ drive. There are many day trips possible from Peschino to the surrounding historic and cultural centres of Umbria and Tuscany. As well as Cortona, within an hour you can visit Perugia, Deruta, Assisi, Arezzo, Sansepolcro, Siena, Gubbio, Orvieto, Montepulciano and other hill towns. Florence is 90-minutes by car or the fastest train.
