A detached 4 bed character farmhouse situated in the east of Tuscany

Part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, the name of this wonderful stone farmhouse means "tower to heaven", and from its beautiful position atop the hill of the tiny village of Ripoli you can enjoy outstanding views of the valley.

In the Middle Ages, Luna was a sighting tower and in 1894 was extended into a large farmhouse. The property retains the charming features of the original building such as beautiful beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and stone arches.

Arranged over two floors, the entrance leads from the terrace into the main corridor. On the ground floor there is a well-equipped kitchen complete with fridge/freezer, hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. Adjacent to the kitchen is a lovely sitting and dining room, separated by an archway. There is extensive seating, satellite TV and a beautiful Tuscan fireplace.

Another smaller sitting room leads off the kitchen, from where stairs lead to the first floor and the four en-suite bedrooms (three doubles and one twin). One of the double bedrooms can be converted into a twin on request. All the bathrooms have a shower, basin, bidet, wc and hairdryer.

Outside, a door from the terrace leads in to a characterful tower. Stairs take you up to the roof terrace, a real feature of the house, with its stunning views.

Externally. The house has a lovely rear terrace, perfect for al-fresco dining, a beautiful garden, barbecue, swimming pool (10m x 5m) and a Jacuzzi available on request.

There is lots to do in the area, with golf at Club Caldese and at Umbertide, horse-riding, mountain bike tours, 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.

Footpaths in the adjoining woods are perfect for long walks and there’s also table tennis available and a pitch for volleyball or football.

A free welcome dinner is offered to all guests on the day of arrival and Tuscan dinners can be booked throughout your stay on request (at extra charge). The owner will also offer to take your party out to visit the interesting Val Tiberina, at no charge.
