In the green hills in the North of Umbria (Italy) we created 3 very luxurious apartments named Tofanello Luxury homes. A perfect starting point for travels in Tuscany, Umbria and Marche with Florence, Siena, Perugia, San Marino or Rome close by.
When we moved to Italy in 2008, we bought a couple of old country houses, and renovated them into spacious (90 m2, 900 sqft) luxurious gems.
As we enjoy a nice house with a good atmosphere we ensured that the house is built with materials that represent Italy as it was, with: travertine floors, large beams from chestnut wood, exposed stone work, sinks crafted from local quarried stone ('pietra serena') etc..
During our travels through Italy we could not find modern, fresh, all comfort included houses and a good atmosphere for rent.
Therefore, we decided to build it ourselves and we are ready to share our place with our guests.
Our property has 3 similar sized houses that can of course be rented for a group of people. In total we can accommodate 6 persons. When you want to share meals there is ample room to seat everyone around the big table in one of the apartments or of course in the garden.
You will find us in a small hamlet called Prato in the comune of Monte S.Maria Tiberina, 2 km from the border with Tuscany in the North of Umbria, in an area very close to the Marche.
We value easy access. Our house is in a little village and as there is an asphalt road to the village, there is no need to drive for kilometers on a white (gravel) road to reach us. The next town, Città di Castello, is an easy, 15 minute drive. Here you can find everything you need from shops to food to restaurants and museums.
Every apartment is built to be a separate unit, you have complete privacy with a private terrace and private entrance. The house is equipped with everything you may want on a holiday; Netflix, (free) wireless Internet throughout the whole house, a washer/dryer, air-conditioning in the bedrooms and mosquito nets on all windows and doors to give you a good night rest.
For guests that are coming in autumn, winter or early spring we have a nice fireplace in the living room that also heats the radiators throughout the whole house.
A whirlpool and plunge pool (3x7 m) is available for the guests from half May till half September. Your private terrace gives you all the privacy you'd want.
There are no hidden costs. All costs are included in the price: end cleaning, electricity, heating (gas and/or firewood), bed linen (towels for every day should you want that) etc.

A vacation should be relaxing and we can help you make your stay as relaxed as possible. We know the area, speak Italian and can show you the places to go to that you would not normally see and book for you if needed.

When you want to dine out we offer a taxi service (for a small fee) where we bring you to the restaurant and pick you up again (in the villages surrounding our place). This way you can enjoy the food, wine (maybe a little grappa) etc. without having to worry about drinking and driving.
In case you don't want to go out at all, we can prepare a gourmet dinner served in your own apartment for you as well. Naturally, breakfast or lunch won't be a problem either.
On the day of your arrival, the first necessities will be waiting for you and if you want, we will get you the groceries you may need up front (just let us know what).
It's not that we don't like children but from a safety point of view we consider our apartments only suitable for babies that can't crawl or walk yet.
We would like that travellers treat the house with respect. We don't hide anything or put it away. We like our guests to feel at home and expect them to treat the house as we do.
