A beautiful 6 bed manor house situated in a picturesque hilltop village

Almost on the border between Tuscany and Umbria and part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, Il Maniero is a stunning manor house dating back to the 18th century. It lies approximately two miles from the picturesque hilltop village of Monterchi and the medieval hamlet of Ripoli.

The house is set over three floors. On the ground floor you enter into a large sitting/dining room with decorative Tuscan fireplace, terracotta floors and beamed ceiling, TV, DVD player and stereo. An archway divides the sitting and dining areas, and another arch leads through to a large breakfast kitchen with vaulted ceiling. The kitchen is well equipped with a five ring gas hob, electric oven, microwave, American coffee maker, Italian coffee maker, kettle, two fridge/freezers and a dishwasher. From the kitchen, a doorway leads to the vine-covered pergola with barbecue and pizza oven.

The first floor has a comfortable sitting room and a separate TV room with fireplace, satellite TV and DVD player. Down the corridor, there are four bedrooms and a balcony that overlooks the swimming pool and gardens. Two of the four bedrooms on this floor are double en-suite with shower, basin and wc, one further double has a separate bathroom with shower (with hydro-massage), basin and WC and the fourth is a twin en-suite with shower, basin, bidet and WC.

Stairs from the first floor sitting room lead to the top floor where there are two further bedrooms, two twins that can be converted into doubles. One of the twin rooms is en-suite and the other a family bathroom. Both feature shower, basin, WC and hairdryer.

The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden with mature shrubs, flowerbeds and lawns extending into a park of several acres. Along one side of the house there is a stunning vine covered pergola, and below the house, there’s a swimming pool (12m x 6m) with poolside furniture and outstanding views. There is also a small area set aside for guests to play volleyball or five-a-side football, as well as table tennis and a playground for children.

The nearby medieval village of Monterchi has a small supermarket, an excellent greengrocer, butcher and pharmacy, as well as several other small shops, bars and two great restaurants. There’s also an interesting museum that holds classical music concerts on Wednesdays.

There is lots to do in the area, with golf at Club Caldese and at Umbertide, horse-riding, mountain bike tours, roller blading, clay pigeon shooting, water sports on Lake Trasimeno and tennis at Monterchi. Other places of interest include Citta del Castello (12 miles), Perugia (35 miles), Todi (45 miles) and even a day at the Adriatic beaches is possible, just a 90 minute drive away.

A welcome dinner is offered to all guests on the day of arrival and Tuscan meals can be arranged throughout your stay.
