House

The ‘Casa degli Orizzonti’ is situated in between olive plantations, apricot, almond, cherry, plums, wallnut trees, pines, cypresses, vineyards and fields of sunflowers. It is located about 1 km from Monte Castello di Vibio, a typical Italian Umbrian medieval village built on a hill top. The view of the river Tiber and the medieval city of Tody nearby and the all surroundings with etruscan sites, have inspired poets and painters for centuries. The environment guarantees a high level of privacy. No roads, no neighbours nearby, and cars have to be parked about 50mt from the house up hill. The village is 10 min. walk from the house (700mt.) where major facilities like shops, bakery, post office, bank, bar and restaurant are available. There are cultural events performed in the piazzas and in the “smallest theatre of the world”, and art-classes for painting and music are offered. Monte Castello is well connected by buses and train, also to large cities like Perugia, Firenze, Rome and Napoli. Therefore, car is not essential.

Irene c.

Naples, Italy - July 2019

We spent ten months at Viviana's place and had a great time! Viviana was good at communicating from the start, and we went through a thorough selection process, going through several interviews during which Viviana explained her expectations. She had clear written rules for what to do in the garden and in the house while she was away, and showed us around before leaving to give us a good idea of what there was to do be done. She was regularly in touch when away. She is a very interesting and creative woman, and it has been a pleasure to meet her through Nomador. Even if the property is relatively big, the job is manageable, especially if you follow Viviana's instructions. And, most importantly, the place is beautiful! You are in a very quiet environment but can walk to the nearby town, which is a beautiful Medieval borough. The house is very comfortable for a couple, quite cool in warm weather and warm in winter. It was a great opportunity, we are extremely grateful for it, and we would do it again without a doubt!
