This luxurious and lovely farmhouse overlooking the Alviano nature reserve, in southern Umbria, is the highly original result of the renovation of an old house which was formerly part of a small country church.
All the windows look out from the panoramic side of the house onto a view of wide open spaces sweeping into the distance to the hills beyond.
The sitting room gives on to a verandah, which has been stylishly furnished with garden chairs and a sofa. From the garden, with its abundance of flowers and herbs, several steps lead down to a lower level with a superb swimming pool, whose waters lap onto the surrounding deck, and a fully-equipped pool house.
The farmhouse is elegantly furnished in excellent taste throughout.
A traditional sitting room on the ground floor contains a magnificent double-facing fireplace, next door is a spacious living room with a large fireplace.
All the rooms have wooden floors and a wealth of decorative features which make for an extremely refined living environment.
There are numerous places of interest in the vicinity for culture enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, including Orvieto, Bagnoregio, the Alviano nature reserve and Todi.
