Casale Civitella is a large, carefully restored countryhouse at 420 meter above sea level, overlooking the importante central Italian Lake of Corbara as well as a couple of (fortified) borgos and villages. With clear weather the world famous facade of the Cathedral of Orvieto can be seen from the property. The place was bought in a ruin state by its current owners back in 1999. They transformed it completely into a comfortable place respecting all the authentic features that characterize Umbrian country and farmhouses: old cotto tiled floors and throughout the entire house wooden beams and chestnut windows and doors. The house consist of a main part that has a large kitchen/living and mezzanine bedroom plus a studio with separate bathroom and master bedroom/bathroom area with wardrobe. Accessible via an external staircase is a separate guest apartment at first floor level with large open kitchen/living and two bedrooms and one bathroom. A natural swimming pool, separate covered car parking and nicely preserved gardens and terraces complete the entire property.

Casale Citivitella is easy to reach within 20 car minutes from the Orvieto exit of the Motorway A1, more or less halfway Rome-Florence.
