Pociarello Vecchio is a historic farmhouse that was fully restored late 90s respecting many authentic details. The ruin was manually restored by artisan craftsmen using old building materials. Antique terracotta floors, fireplace and wooden beams are only a few examples of the present typical Italian elements.

The house is divided into a main house and a guest apartment all on two levels.

Pociarello Vecchio has spectacular views due to its perfect situation on a gentle hillside. It is a fantastic location with plenty of privacy but still very close to the towns of Citta della Pieve and Piegaro. Perugia is just 35 km away. Because of its ideal location on the border of Umbria and Tuscany, exactly halfway Rome and Florence, one can make perfect day trips to one of these cities or any other interesting destination nearby (Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and Siena or Arezzo, Perugia and Assisi).
