The apartment 'Città della Pieve is suitable for 1-5 people. It has two large bedrooms, a living room with fully equiped kitchen corner and a cosy fire place, a bathroom with toilet, wash basin and shower. The first bedroom has a double bed and a single bed and room enough to place a baby cot. It has double doors that open into the garden, to the terrace with an outdoor table and chairs. The second bedroom has a double bed and also has doors that open into the garden at the other side of the house, where guests can also sit at their own private outdoor table. The living space of the apartment is approximately 60 square meters. From the ground floor apartment Città della Pieve, it is just a short stroll through the garden down to the large swimming pool of Casa San Carlo, where all guests can enjoy the lovely weather and fantastic views all around. There are sunbeds & sun umbrellas for communal use. In the communal area of the villa the guests are welcome to sit and watch television, listen to music, read books on their surroundings, or enjoy a home cooked meal that Dutch owners Torben and Klaartje Heerze will serve during the week. There is also a minibar from which guests can taste Umbrian wines and soft drinks. In apartment Città della Pieve you will enjoy a carefree holiday; Dutch owners Torben and Klaartje Heerze and their little girls Giulia and Elena, will be at your service. They can give you cultural tips on the medieval cities nearby, serve a lovely breakfast on the terrace outside or cook you a daily 'menù del giorno' if you don't feel like cooking yourself. You can easily reach apartment Città della Pieve from the A1 motorway from Florence to Rome. The exit is at Fabro, only a ten-minute drive from the house. The international airports of Florence and Rome each lie within 140 kilometres, Perugia can be reached within 45 minutes, Pisa is 210 kilometres. As a region, Umbria - also known as the Green Heart of Italy - offers not only astonishing nature but also a lot of culture: the unique art and architecture, castles, churches and medieval monasteries in cities such as Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Orvieto and Spoleto attract admirers from near and far. Throughout the region you can find works by famous artists such as Giotto and Piero della Francesca and by the Umbrian painter Perugino - his native town Città della Pieve is located seven kilometers from Casa San Carlo. Because of its position on the border with Tuscany, guests can easily reach famous Tuscan cities as Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena and Florence by car or train. Torben and Klaartje (or Claire, in English) also export Umbrian and Tuscan wines and freshly harvested olive oil to The Netherlands, so they have a lot of knowlegde about the vineyards in their area. A nice wine tasting plus tour of any Vineyard is thus easily arranged! Also, for those who really want to experience Italian life, they can arrange for a Vespa scooter for their guests, so that you can sightsee all around Umbria on your own. We hope to welcome you to lovely Umbria! Torben & Klaartje Heerze

Zwemmen, pizza’s eten en genieten
Fantastisch! Toppe gastheer en gastvrouw. Als je net als ik een alleenstaande vader met een paar kinderen bent is er niks beters te bedenken. Lekker met een glas wijn in de zon liggen terwijl je een pizza eet die je zelf hebt gemaakt terwijl je je kinderen hun vrije gang kan laten gaan. In het dorp beneden is er zowel voor kinderen als voor single mannen genoeg te beleven. Absolute aanrader!

Idyllisch gelegen villa midden in de natuur met een prachtig uitzicht
Casa San Carlo is een paradijsje en de gastvrouw en gastheer zijn de engelen die deze uitgelezen vakantie bestemming beheren. Uitstekende appartementen in een mooie villa die heel authentiek is gerestaureerd. Het zwembad ligt wat lager waardoor er rondom het zwembad een intieme sfeer heerst. Naast logies bieden Klaartje en Torben tal van streekproducten aan, Alles van uitstekende kwaliteit en schappelijk geprijsd De omgeving biedt tal van excusiemogelijkheden,zoals Orvieto, lago di Corbara en niet te vergeten het prachtige Middeleeuwse stadje Monteleone : een verstild pareltje.

Echt ge-wel-dig!
Geweldige plek met een geweldige sfeer, uitzicht en gezelligheid. Ideaal voor een gezin. Eigenaren Klaartje & Torben complimenteren je verblijf met behulpzame tips en organiseren meerdere culinaire avonden waaronder een wekelijkse pizza-avond. Torben-de-sommelier serveert fantastische wijnen, waarvan sommige eigen Casa San Carlo wijnen zijn. De self-service bar is volledig uitgerust met voor-ieder-wat-wils. Het onlangs gerenoveerde zwembad is een traktatie om rond te hangen. De locaties zijn ook geweldig. Niet twijfelen, doen! Gereisd in aug, 2017

Geweldig plekje verscholen in de bergen bij Monteleone
Oud omgebouwd landhuis met 8 appartementen in de heuvels bij Monteleone. Heerlijke plek om tot rust te komen met het gezin. De appartementen zijn erg fijn en ruim. Het leuke is dat het kleinschalig is. De kinderen maken snel vriendjes en spelen de hele dag in of rond het zwembad of in het speeltuintje. De eigenaren Klaartje en Torben maken er echt een feestje van. 3 keer per week kan je aanschuiven om mee te eten, waaronder ook een keer zelf pizza's maken. Dit is voor de kids een belevenis. Pizza klaar? Dan roep je Pizza Pronta! En Torben komt aangesneld met zijn pizza schep om je pizza in 3 minuutjes af te bakken. Echt smullen! Biertjes en wijntjes streep je gewoon zelf af en gaat op basis van vertrouwen. Waar vind je dit nog? In de omgeving zijn tal van leuke dorpjes te bezichtigen, maar ook bijvoorbeeld watervallen, warm water bronnen, klimparken etc. Torben organiseert ook wijnproeverijen met lekkere hapjes erbij waar je gerust je kinderen mee kunt nemen. Bij casa San Carlo kom je echt tot rust en heb je echt vakantie, absolute aanrader!!

Super gastvriendelijk
Met 16 vriendinnen hebben we Casa San Carlo afgehuurd en het was geweldig! Van ontvangst tot en met vertrek zijn we door Klaartje en Torben in de watten gelegd!! Ik kan hier in superlatieven het huis, het ontbijt, de wijnen, het avondeten, de pizza's, het uitzicht en het gastheer/vrouw-schap beschrijven. Maar de beste tip die ik kan geven: dit moet je zelf ervaren, dus boeken en gaan!

Ultiem genieten met vrienden of familie
Of je je nu helemaal in de watten wilt laten leggen of alles zelf wilt uitzoeken. Alles kan hier. Wij gingen met vrienden voor een all inclusive pakket met heerlijke ontbijtjes, wijnen, top adressen om te eten en de omgeving te verkennen en dus het ultieme vakantiegevoel. Kom zeker terug met kids voor een heerlijke familievakantie in 1 van de appartementjes

Perfect place for families - large pool, nice appartment, lots of services
Casa san Carlo is owned by a dutch couple and therefore attracts dominantly people from holland. In the dutch holiday season , expect CSC to be fully booked by dutch families. Citta Pieve is the only appartment on the ground floor. It is at the entrance of the casa, at the back there is a communal area. A few times a week, dinner is served (optionally), furthermore there is an honesty bar, espressomachine and stocked wine cellar. In the morning, CSC can provide fresh bread from the bakery. Citta Pieve has the advantage you can be outside without being in the communal area (therefore possible to withdraw from the typical dutch "gezelligheid" . As it is at the entrance of the house, other guests walk by. The pool is large an boosts a 2m+ depth part and a shallow part with roman stairs. Very good, There is a garden with children toys and around the house there is a large collection of toys, lego. You can leave all of that at home!

About the neighborhood
What to see and do around us: Casa San Carlo is centrally located to visit both Tuscany and Umbria! Visit cities such as Montepulciano, Siena, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto and see all of their treasures. Wander around through the mideaval cobbled streets, have the best coffe in town and eat a delicious 'gelato'. Enjoy a day at the nearby Spa and bathe like the old Romands did in natural thermal water! Go winetasting in the vicinity of the villa and then enjoy the large swimming pool to relax. Rent a Vespa scooter and take a tour of Lake Trasimeno, or take a direct train to Florence or Rome and be amazed by these beautiful cities. Torben and Claire are happy to give you all the tips you need! About the villa: On the exact same spot where Casa San Carlo now stands, there used to be a ruin with a great tree growing out of it. The old stones of the ruin were used for the outer walls of the new house and for the 'portico' (the terrace). Other materials, such as the beams for the ceiling, the stones for the inner walls, the wood for the kitchen drawers and the huge dining room table, were all produced in Umbria. Most of the furniture is handmade, such as the beds and cupboards in the bedrooms. During the restoration a lot of though went into the environment as well. Solar panels were installed to use as a natural heating system, which also reduces the use of costly gas. Each apartment has central heating, which means that we don;t have to heat up the whole house for individual guests in winter time. The restoration took a year and a half to complete, and its result is a stunning luxury villa of 500 square meters with a small annex next to it, an impressive pool and a lovely garden. Casa San Carlo is the ideal place for young and old, for individual guests as well as for groups, for couples or for families with young children. We'd love to welcome you in our home!
