Casale Sant’Elena, is a gorgeous stone farmhouse offering spacious accommodation, with its own private (heated) swimming pool, terrace and landscaped gardens.
The house has been fully restored but retains many original features including handmade terracotta floors, a characteristic Umbrian arched kitchen, wooden beamed ceilings, large rooms with high ceilings and long views, terraces to catch the sun all day long, and seating both inside and outside.
Outside the house, the ca. 5000 m² garden with cypress trees and young olive trees extends from both the back and front of the house giving you room for walking and a place for outdoor games, offering 360 degree views of the Umbrian hills and the capital city of Perugia beyond.
Quietly situated Casale Sant’Elena is ideal for family holidays yet conveniently close to the many cultural, artistic and culinary delights of central Italy. The two small villages of Cerqueto (3km) and Spina (2.5km) offer some basic amenities (bank, small supermarket, bar, pharmacist)
Downstairs you will find a large fully fitted eat-in kitchen. It is designed with an island workstation unit in the middle with gas hob and granite working surfaces. The kitchen looks out onto the spacious stone patio ideal for outdoor dining. The lounge, next to the dining area, is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine before dinner, a good book or good company.
The lounge has two large shuttered French windows facing south and opens to the poolside patio making it feel open and airy.
Completing the downstairs are two twin bedrooms, travertine tiled bathroom and entrance hall with a chest of drawers.
There are 4 spacious bedrooms on the upper floor. The master bedroom has two large windows, each with a beautiful view. A marble bathroom with travertine tiles and shower adjoins the room. One of the other bedrooms comes with an ensuite travertine tiled bathroom with shower and bathtub. The remaining bedrooms are located in the tower section which share a bathroom with shower. There is also a covered terrace (Loggia) on the first floor which can be reached by the internal or outside staircase.
