(x 4 people)

Sleeps 4 | Bedrooms 3 | Bathrooms 2 | Near Cortona, Umbria

Independent villa | Private pool |

Overview

ll Fico is a charming stone farmhouse set in the lush Carpini Valley of northern Umbria, between the two medieval cities of Citta di Castello and Umbertide. Delightfully restored, the house has retained its original beamed ceilings and terracotta floors, its old fireplace and a beautiful archway leading into the refurbished kitchen. Just outside the kitchen a pretty dining loggia offers the perfect setting for al fresco meals. The swimming pool faces the house, surrounded by a nicely maintained garden with lovely old trees, including the ancient fig for which the property is named. This is an ideal property for those who like to stay off the beaten track, but not too far: the area offers wonderful opportunities for exploring on foot, as well as an endless array of interesting sights within a short drive.

Clients reviews

Firstly we were very grateful of your recognition for the last minute change of villa we had booked. Having pretty much used one Villa company for the last 10 years or more we began doubting our decision to change. However, as it turned out we could not have been more pleased with the service we received from your company, the villa itself, its location and especially ‘Peggy’ who greeted us on arrival. The attention to detail from start to finish, including instructions documents, the welcome pack of provisions (much appreciated after arriving in sports cars with no room for even a loaf of bread!) and the reception we got from Peggy was exceptional. She went through everything that we needed to know, showed us that everything worked oven, lights etc (I am sure seeing the way she works, that was all checked before we arrived). She explained the times the local shops opened and so on, and so on. This level of service is regrettably rare and as we run companies ourselves, really do appreciate this level of client attention. Peggy also visited a number of times during the fortnight, pre-arranged, to check everything was ok. Whoever found her and engaged her in the role found a gem. Given the overall experience of dealing with your company and of the villa itself, we have no hesitation recommending you to friends and will undoubtedly look to come back to you again in the future.

We have so enjoyed our week here. This house is a delight , so imaginatively renovated and furnished. It is homely, cosy and above all peaceful and serene. A week has not been long enough to explore all the beauty of this area.
