Arcelle is a lovely stone-built farmhouse with an attached guesthouse, set in the enchanting Umbrian countryside. It is within easy reach of the town of Umbertide and the Tuscan border. It is the perfect location from which to explore the area, famed for its cultural and historical attractions such as the towns of Siena, Cortona and Gubbio.Between the two buildings is a pergola, which is equipped for dining ‘al fresco’ while you enjoy the panorama.
The villa has a private swimming pool set on a raised terrace in the large garden and enjoys stunning views of the rolling Umbrian hills. There is ample comfortable garden and pool furniture available.This villa has been recently renovated both inside and out, building onto the original medieval walls in order to expose their beauty and give the house a rustic and authentic feel. The spacious interior has been lovingly restored using 19th Century oak beams for the ceilings. It also boasts stone fireplaces and old terracotta floors.
The little village of Spedalicchio is only 3 kms away and has a food shop and coffee bar. For a wider choice of shopping facilities, Umbertide is about 11kms away.
