With total living space of 130 sqm and a large private garden, Il Fornaio (the original bakery) is a generously-proportioned home with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Entry is into the high ceiling living area with its large, ancient chestnut beams. The front portion provides the sitting area and the rear part with the highest ceiling has a large, fully fitted l-shaped kitchen and a dining area. From here two short flights of stairs lead successively to two upper levels, each with one bedroom and one bathroom. Both bedrooms, which are large doubles, have French doors leading onto the garden at the side of Il Fornaio. Both bathrooms have a bath, one with a separate shower.
The private outside space consists of a paved terrace which makes an ideal place for al fresco dining, and a large area of lawn with flowerbeds and mature fig trees to two sides of the property. This provides a choice at all times of day of sitting in the sun or in shade.
Il Fornaio has satellite internet with wi-fi, connection for satellite TV, central heating and a fireplace for the winter months. The communal swimming pool and all-weather tennis court are shared with seven other properties at Rancale.
Rancale is a tiny peaceful borgo in the unspoiled Umbrian countryside 10 minutes away from the busy market town of Umbertide. It sits in a protected area of densely wooded hillsides running along the Tiber Valley. The area has long been popular as a holiday destination for discerning British and Americans, with the Dutch and other northern Europeans now also having discovered the area. Rancale sits in the Upper Tiber valley and is a collection of nine beautifully restored homes which were awarded the coveted title of Best Renovation Europe.
The properties are a collection of farm buildings ranging from the farm managers villa through to a series of buildings which were originally working farm properties; the tobacco drying tower, the stables and the bakery. The original buildings were between 200 and 400 years old. All have been wonderfully restored to an exceptionally high standard and the 3.5 acre site includes a communal swimming pool and all-weather tennis court serving eight properties. Each property offers a combination of private outside space and communal grounds.
