In western Umbria hidden away in a green and hilly landscape is the Castle of Montegiove. It sits on top of a hill overlooking its large grounds. On these grounds, underneath the castle the Podere Montegiove welcomes its guests in a tranquil and comfortable atmosphere.
"It felt amazing to just kick up our feet and relax with a cup of coffee or glass of local wine. Hearing the birds and the village bells made you truly feel that you were somewhere else."
The peace and quietness of this rural environment in combination with the modern comfort of the Podere Montegiove guarantees a relaxing holiday that will be remembered for long.
The host is a Dutch lady who recently restored this old farm which now is a bed and breakfast. She also speaks english. On the ground floor is a spacious and modern holiday apartment overlooking the garden and the very particular swimming pond. The water in this pond is cleaned naturally and is a wonderful experience to swim in. It is oval and 12 by 8 meters large. The deepest point is in the centre and is 2.5 meters. Via stone steps one can enter into the water.
The Podere Montegiove is at 20 minutes from Fabro and the entrance to the A1 which takes you within 2 hours to either Florence or Rome.
