price on request - Historic centre
This typical little town-house with private outdoor space is located in the historic center of Papiano. A beautiful medieval village in the center of Umbria. With thick external walls, central heating and a log fire, well-equipped kitchen and white-tiled shower room, this townhouse is cool in summer and cosy in winter: a perfect retreat for all seasons and ideal for anyone looking for authentic, rural Italy.
A few steps lead up to the front door. Inside, a small lobby takes you into the main kitchen and living room including a double sofa bed, table and chairs and open fire. The tiny hallway leads to the blue and white-tiled shower room with W.C. and wash hand basin. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed with double aspect windows. The small second bedroom has twin beds which can convert to double. Both rooms are simply decorated with fresh white walls and wooden-beamed ceilings.
There is storage space in the living area, kitchen and bedrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped with utensils, crockery and glassware, as well as a cooker, hob, sink, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine. The very efficient electric boiler is housed in a cupboard which provides added storage space. Also included is a TV/DVD player.
Furniture and contents are included.
Downstairs, from the entrance lobby, steps lead down to a little paved courtyard garden, furnished with table and chairs for al fresco dining. There is a storage area under the stairs to store logs and garden equipment.
The property is situated within an authentic medieval borgo whose little cobbled paths wind between the houses and less than 5 minutes walk will take you to the lower village which offers an excellent butcher, a popular bar, a hairdresser, post office, café and general store. Most inhabitants are local Italians but some of the houses are holiday homes owned by Brits, Norwegians and Belgians.
Papiano is equidistant between Perugia and Todi. The village has a thriving and lively community atmosphere and welcomes newcomers. Nearby there is a sport and community centre, a horse riding centre and golf driving range. There are many restaurants close by including one which has had national awards for its desserts! The market town of Marsciano, with a wide range of shops and services, is just 10 minutes’ drive away. For keen walkers, there are many white roads around the village with views across the Tiber valley towards the Apennines.
