Casa Giano is a countryhouse spread out over two floors, in the Umbrian hills between famous Sangrantino wine town Montefalco and the medieval city of Spoleto. It has been restored in 2003-2004 with great care and proper attention to a wonderful combination of traditional materials and modern appliances like a sauna, satellite system and in-built stereo system. In the house itself the restoration architect from Rome used wooden beams, very nice local stonework both inside as well as outside, hand made terracotta floor tiles, as common practice in this part of Umbria. The property enjoys spectacular panoramic views, a private swimming pool, is fully fenced and at walking distance from the tiny and pretty village of Giano dell'Umbria.
