It was the my grandparents ‘ home, where we spent our summer holidays, and I feel the love I put into this project.
It is located on a small promontory, Castelnuovo, 600 m above sea level andwas a small conglomeration in the Middle Ages but nowonly part of a bastion dating back to the XIII century remains. The area is surrounded by greenery, far from the traffic of roads; Pieve Santo Stefano is 8 km away and Sansepolcro 10 km.
Castelnuovo is for lovers of ecological tourism, nature, relaxing, hiking or walking, mountain biking, the sun, the beautiful orange sunsets, the starry sky. And it does not end here. The area is rich in history and beautiful places: Sansepolcro,where Piero Della Francesca,famous all over the word,was born ; Pieve Santo Stefano,with its very interesting diary archive ; Anghiari,famous for the “Battle of Anghiari” painted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1504; San Giustino,with the Bufalini Castle that should not be missed; Citerna , a medieval village; Mount della Verna, where San Francesco spent part of his life ; to mention a few,butthere are many more.
Let’s go back to the house, it’s simple but welcoming: it has a kitchen with a fireplace,wood-burning stove,microwave oven, fridge with freezer, toaster, washing machine.
The bedrooms are large and very bright, both overlooking the lake.The bathroom is small but there is a bathtub and a shower.
The living room is spacious and comfortable.
An outside staircase leads to a garden where you can enjoy a splendid view of the Tiber valley, and the Montedoglio lake.
You can have lunch under the shade of a thick horse-chestnut tree or dine al fresco under the stars!
All this is for families with children and for couples or friends who want simplicity and tranquility!!
Those who visit this place leavea part of their hearts here, because it is a unique experience!
