Casa San Carlo - apartment Città della Pieve

The apartment 'Città della Pieve' is situated on the ground floor of a large villa called Casa San Carlo, in the lovely hills of Umbria, right on the Tuscan border.

Looking up, you'll see the belltower of Monteleone d'Orvieto, a charming little village just a mile up the country road.

Rent a Vespa scooter and take a tour of Lake Trasimeno, or take a direct train to Florence or Rome and be amazed by these beautiful cities. Torben and Claire are happy to give you all the tips you need!

About the villa:
On the exact same spot where Casa San Carlo now stands, there used to be a ruin with a great tree growing out of it. The old stones of the ruin were used for the outer walls of the new house and for the 'portico' (the terrace). Other materials, such as the beams for the ceiling, the stones for the inner walls, the wood for the kitchen drawers and the huge dining room table, were all produced in Umbria. Most of the furniture is handmade, such as the beds and cupboards in the bedrooms.
During the restoration a lot of though went into the environment as well. Solar panels were installed to use as a natural heating system, which also reduces the use of costly gas. Each apartment has central heating, which means that we don;t have to heat up the whole house for individual guests in winter time.
The restoration took a year and a half to complete, and its result is a stunning luxury villa of 500 square meters with a small annex next to it, an impressive pool and a lovely garden.
Casa San Carlo is the ideal place for young and old, for individual guests as well as for groups, for couples or for families with young children. We'd love to welcome you in our home!
