The property sits near the top of the valley with much of it South or West facing. Being quite high up means the air is fresh, flies are never a problem and the weather in the middle of summer is a lot less oppressive than down in the valley. Another advantage is that even in the middle of winter, we are often above the freezing fog and can benefit from sunny days at any time of year. That said, the temperature can range from 36C to -12C - hence the reason why we took out the old double glazing and installed higher-spec windows and doors.

Location-wise, the property is situated 5 minutes from a main East-West superstrada. From there times are as follows:

  • Valtopina, our local town, which has all amenities - under 2 minutes

  • Foligno, Umbria's 'third city' - 15 minutes

  • Perugia, Umbria's principal city - 45 minutes

  • Assisi - 35 minutes

  • Perugia airport (flights from London Stansted) - 35 minutes

  • Nocera Umbra (the nearest frequently-serviced railway station) - 10 minutes

  • Ancona and the Adriatic Coast - 90 minutes

  • Rome and Florence - 150 minutes (go by train)

In order to comply with Italian property law, we will refer the prospective buyer to a registered estate agent. The sale will be handled by them and a recognised notary.

You may not be aware but the standard estate agent fee here in Italy is a hefty 6% with half being paid by the vendor and the other half by the buyer. If a sale originates through this website, we should both be able to negotiate reduced rates of commission.
