The Casale della Giara is on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, at just 5 km from Fabro (a main centre for shopping and commodities) and just few minutes away from some of these regions’ most important historical centres: Città della Pieve (9 km), Cetona and Chiusi (respectively 17 and 19 km), Orvieto and Perugia (respectively 37 and 42 km).
The nearest airport is Perugia S. Egidio (at 53 km), while Rome’s international airports of Ciampino and Fiumicino are at the respective distances of 157 km and 186 km.
At Fabro, just 5 km from the residence, is the entrance to the main highway, which represents a rapid link to both Rome and Florence, both of which can be reached in less than an hour and a half.
Description of buildings
The house is spread over an area of about 370 square metres on three levels, which are staggered to follow the natural course of the hilly terrain.
The first floor contains a large living room with a fireplace as well as a comfortable porch with an oven and grill, ideal for outdoor dining; the structure also contains a lounge, a study, a dining room, a kitchen and a bathroom.
The sleeping area, which is comprised of four bedrooms (one with a wardrobe) and three bathrooms, is located on the ground floor.
The basement houses a rustic kitchen and service rooms: a store, a wine cellar with a cave, a tool shed, a closet and a bathroom.
Dating back to the year 1700, the country house has been carefully restored to perfect condition.
The exterior stone and brick work, which adorns the corners of the house and is used to create decorative arches and cornices around the windows, is a constant reminder of the dwelling’s proximity to the region of Tuscany.
Inside, the ceiling’s typical framework, in wooden beams and handmade 50x50 cm terracotta tiles, renders the atmosphere warm and inviting.
The house is surrounded by a well-kept park area containing beautiful olive trees, cypresses and fruit trees (cherries, peaches, pears, apples, apricots...), beyond which the rest of the private property extends for a total about one hectare.
All around the house, staircases and beautiful pathways wind through the garden and lead to the 13x13 meter swimming pool, with a large adjacent porch and barbecue area.
The property is completely fenced and has an electric entry gate and paved driveway.

Usage and potential
Thanks to its strategic geographic location, the Casale della Giara is ideal as a main residence, as a holiday home or even as an investment with the possibility of offering the property for weekly rentals.
In particular, its proximity to Rome and Florence renders it perfect for anyone who, occasionally growing tired of the hectic life of the big city, wants to get away on weekends to relax and enjoy the tranquillity, the privacy and the natural rhythms of the Umbrian countryside.
