Ca' di Gosto (Gosto's house) the house's name (Ca' is the Venetian contraction of the word casa) indicates that a "casa collonica" has stood on this property since the twelfth century when the "peste" or plague forced the Venetians to re-locate many of their food producing farms to this part of Umbria and Tuscany. The actual house itself though probably only dates back about five hundred years.
Set among rolling hills and terraces of aged olive trees the house has been lovingly restored over the past several years. Ancient stone and old terra cotta tiles and wooden beams have been used throughout the house to keep it's original character as far as possible. The downstairs animal stalls have been converted into the kitchen, living and dining areas with flagstone floors and large fireplaces.
There are five quite different double bedrooms (double or twin beds) each with it's own bathroom with shower and/or bath, and one with a log burning fireplace.
"Il Porcile" the Old Pigsty is a self contained little house away from the main house and has a living room with a huge fireplace, a double bedroom, kithen and bathroom, and is available on a B&B or self catering basis
