Farmhouse in Umbria - Poggio le Stalle

Poggio Le Stalle is an 18th century farmhouse that has been sensitively and tastefully restored to create a large villa flanked by a separate guesthouse and studio sitting on 40 acres of private land. Nestled on the edge of a Mediterranean oak forest, this charming property is located in a rural, authentic and relatively unknown corner of southern Umbria.

The rustic exterior of the farmhouse melds into the backdrop of the hilly, forested Umbrian surroundings.
