Local Information

Citta della Pieve is boasts an 11th century tower and an impressive medieval castle. There are some great restaurants: both basic and ’posh’; a little of everything but all very delicious. The weekly Saturday market offers some great local fare. The village also has a claim to fame: it is home to what is thought to be Italy’s narrowest street, the Via Baciadonne (or “Kiss Women Street”), probably built following a quarrel between neighbours.

There are many other wonderful hilltop towns within easy reach..  A trip to Orvieto is a must, with its elegant shops and wonderful cafes. The site of the city as you approach is incredibly dramatic as it rises above the vertical faces of cliffs (it is built on an old volcano) that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone.

It is also under an hour to drive to Montepulciano, world-famous for its vino noble (do try the Pici pasta which it is also very well known for) where a happy day can be spent in the cool wine caves sampling the delicious local wine.

Nearer to the house is cycling, golf and water sports at Lake Trasimeno. There is a small (but fun) water park 20 minutes away which serves great coffee for adults!

Our View

A truly lovely house with no immediate neighbours, yet within easy reach of a medieval hilltop town. The large open-plan living space is hugely comfortable and a winding path leads through the olive trees to a centuries-old, original wine cellar that has been transformed into an outdoor kitchen with seating area. Overlooking the property’s small vineyard, it’s perfect for pizzas, long lunches or supper ‘al fresco’.
