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 1 (see below for more details).

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 bed and a half to sleep one adult as

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.
