Secluded yet easily accessible, Il Casale di Mele is the perfect setting, providing the tranquility of the countryside but within easy reach of E45 which leads to many famous hill towns as well as parts of Tuscany. Just 5 years old, the farmhouse was built with authentic regional materials including antique doors, heavy chestnut beams, hand forged ironwork and antique stone fireplaces. The farmhouse sleeps 6 plus 2 children or 1 adult.

Typical of country villas, there is no central air conditioning, however the thick stone walls and screened windows allow the villa to remain cool even during the hottest months of the year. The screened windows allow you to enjoy the fresh country air with scents of lavender, jasmine, and wild flowers wafting from room to room.

Il Casale di Mele is completely fenced and upon entering it’s iron gates you come up the circular driveway surrounded by wild lavender, rosemary, and olive trees. Upon entering the farmhouse itself, you walk into a large open living room complete with new comfortable furniture chosen to enhance the country atmosphere that is settled invitingly around the large antique wood burning fireplace. Along one wall hangs a large flat screen television with a DVD player and stereo. Two large windows sit at each side of the fireplace allowing you to enjoy views of the rolling hills behind the property even while you are indoors.

The living room is open to the large country kitchen which boasts a large center island that contains a high end gas cooktop. There is also a convection wall oven, a microwave oven, as well as a large commercial sized refrigerator freezer. The kitchen is bright and sunny with a large window over the sink that allows you to see for miles. The French style kitchen doors open to a large stone covered terrace with climbing sweet smelling jasmine surrounded by an olive trees. The terrace also holds a new table that seats 8 for dining al fresco as well as a barbeque for those evenings when you prefer to dine at home. There is another antique fireplace in the kitchen that is open to the dining room. The dining room is furnished with a large dining hutch as well as an antique table that seats 8 people comfortably.

From the other side of the living room you can access the study which holds a couch that can open as a double bed to sleep two as needed. Down the hall, you come to a bedroom with a private en-suite bathroom. The bed is matrimonial size, which is slightly larger than a US Queen size bed. The en-suite bath has both a large tub as well as an enclosed shower.

Along the hall is another bathroom with an enclosed shower and tub. Followed by this bathroom, is a second bedroom with twin beds. Both bedrooms contain large clothing closets and are newly painted and decorated with typical country style bed linens. The last room on the main floor is a large laundry room with a washing machine, drying hanger, ironing board, and iron.

The second story holds the third bedroom which has it’s own walk-in closet, and bathroom containing a large tub as well as a stand alone enclosed shower. This room also has it’s own private balcony which looks out over the green rolling Umbrian countryside, and is a perfect spot to sit each evening and watch the stunning sunsets while enjoying a delicious glass of Umbrian wine.

Next to the house contained by a gated fence is the large three level pool and huge stone sunbathing terrace. The pool is equipped with a warm water shower, lounge chairs and umbrellas. The pool terrace allows views of the scenic rolling Umbrian hills behind and looks up at Collazzone, the small town above.

Why Rent A Farmhouse?

Renting your own vacation property in Italy provides you with several advantages over a hotel stay including luxury, space and privacy. When doing a cost comparison, booking a weekly vacation house is almost always less expensive than booking the same number of bedrooms in a hotel for an entire week. Most private vacation homes such as Il Casale di Mele offer considerably more living space than you will ever find in the typical hotel room often at a reduced cost. A farmhouse rental is ideal if you are looking for a quiet getaway for family and friends vacationing together who still want space to find a quiet place of their own.

Another advantage to a farmhouse rental is that you will have both a complete kitchen as well as laundry facilities available during your entire stay which you do not find in most Italian hotels. You don’t have to eat out for every meal, although you certainly can if you want to! A farmhouse rental is a perfect “home base” to travel to and from on day trips, and having rented Italian vacation homes for many years before owning our own, we found it is very relaxing to get up each morning and have breakfast at home before heading out for the day. We often ate our large meal out while touring, and then enjoyed coming home to our rental property, or “home away from home” to relax by the pool and enjoy a light dinner.

Il Casale has a private outside area where you can spend a few hours just enjoying the sun by the pool, reading a book, admiring the gorgeous rolling hills in the distance with a glass of Umbrian wine, or planning what you want to see the following day from our extensive collection of tour books and useful information on Umbria. We traveled throughout Umbria extensively before buying our homes here and have put together a great deal of useful material from our favorite day trips, wineries to check out, markets you shouldn’t miss, places to shop, our best restaurant picks, as well as many other useful tips to help you plan the best vacation possible while staying at Il Casale di Mele.

A farmhouse rental allows you to create your own perfect vacation and set your own schedule. If you tire of traveling, take the day off and simply relax by the pool! If you want to visit hill towns in the morning when it is cooler, take off early and return to the farmhouse for the afternoon where you can relax under the welcome shade provided by the poolside umbrellas. Or, if cooking interests you, spend the morning at a local street market and come home to your “own” Italian kitchen, pour a glass of delicious Umbrian wine and create your own culinary experience.

By reserving Il Casale di Mele as your vacation base camp, you will be taking one step closer to arriving at the unparalleled vacation destination that you have been seeking. You will be delving deep into the rural countryside of authentic central Italy, while exploring the multitude of adjacent hillside towns and villages and still have the opportunity to embark on unforgettable day trips to the nearby major cities and tourist hot spots.
