Five Holiday Apartments On The Tuscany Umbrian Border

San Martino is a hamlet on a hillside near the village of Lisciano Niccone in Umbria. It is easily reached by a tarmac country road. The holiday rental apartments look over the lovely Niccone Valley towards the ruined castle of Pierle in Tuscany.

The views of the valley and the Tuscan hills in the direction of Cortona are quite splendid, the setting is quiet and undisturbed.

San Martino Holiday Apartments, Tuscany Umbria Border, Italy

The five holiday rental apartments are in two buildings, a house (3 apartments) and former barn (2 apartments) with the swimming pool area between them. The former farmhouse has been lovingly converted into three comfortable self contained  holiday apartments. Because of the sloping hillside site, each has ground level access. The restored barn is a short distance away and is now two spacious holiday apartments with a large shared loggia or terrace at the entrance. There is also a small guest restaurant on the end of this building (the barn).

All these self catering holiday apartments are all tastefully furnished and well provided with equipment. The apartments have satellite TV (Italian service with some English channels); dishwashers and working fireplaces. There is a separate laundry room.
