"Le Burgne" is a beautiful farmhouse from the 800's positioned on the Umbra hillside in an enviable position on the border between Umbria and Tuscany.
Overlooking the High Tiber Valley, it dominates the entire valley: from Città di Castello, Monte S. Maria Tiberina, Anghiari, Citerna and as far as Monterchi in Toscany.
The building has been recently renovated, keeping intact the fascination of the main house, the external architectural structure has remained unchanged, as has the interior, characterised by stone walls, wooden beams and original floors. The stone entrance has an antique wood burning oven, still in working order, a symbol of the long lost rural culture. On the ground floor, where previously were the stalls, is a large living room with two brick arches and a stone and terracotta fireplace.
On the ground floor there is also a kitchen, the reception, a bar and two bathrooms.
On the first floor there are five spacious double rooms and a reading corner.
The park has a pine wood, a picnic area with tables and chairs, a barbecue for the guests to use and a lake with water flowers. The exterior complex has a bowling camp, volley ball and five a side football pitch and a children's play area with swings and slides. Down a series of stone steps there is the spacious terrace with a panoramic view and the salt water swimming pool with water massage.
The farmhouse is part of 21ettari circa farmland where vineyards ,olive plants, chestnut trees, fruit trees and sheep and goats are taken care of by the owner. The red and white wine produced is of excellent quality as is the oil and honey. For those who wish to "be at one with nature" it is possible, in the autumn, to take part in the grape harvest and the harvest of chestnuts and olives. On request we organise trips to the surrounding areas and woods to search for mushrooms and truffles ( of which the area is rich) and excursions on mountain bike. Three km from the farm is a splendid 6-hole golf course and a well equipped stables, these properties, however, do not belong to us.
