Cottage Montecchio


Honeymoon paradise immersed in the countryside, nice-feeling of privacy and exclusiveness although the medieval village of Montecchio, between Orvieto and Todi, is a five minute drive.

New cottage with swimming pool, surrounded by olive trees and oaks, set into the hillsides of the Amerini mountains, 400 metres above sea level, wonderful view of the Tiber valley. Wheatfields, sunflower cultures, canyons, farmland; the landscape still retains the authenticity of traditional Umbria without encroachment of building developments. One mile from the National Park of San Lorenzo, a major Etruscan necropolis of 7th century B.C. of which the artifacts can be seen in the Orvieto Archeological Museum.

The interior of the cottage has been conceived as open space to allow the beauty of the surrounding countryside to be thoroughly enjoyed.

The cottage consists of two living sections each with a bedroom, bathroom and studio.

The two sections flank the central core of the cottage which consists of: a main kitchen, dining and living room with fireplace.

Wallsize sliding doors to each section provide privacy. Each unit opens independently into the portico.

Contemporary designer objects and furniture define the elegant and essential style of cottage complimented by old beams, terracotta ceilings and floors in the tradition of Umbrian architecture.
