Santa Chiara offers a choice of three self catering apartments furnished in traditional Umbrian style – Pantano, Rancale and Pietramelina – each with its own unique character. Both Rancale and Pietramelina can be combined to create a three bedroomed apartment Maggiore. All apartments have their own private entrance and terrace for al fresco dining.

 

Pantano - sleeps four

As Santa Chiara is nestled in a valley, this unique situation means that although Pantano is on the top floor of the house, it has its own independent gated entrance at ground level leading onto a luxurious 40 square metre fenced private terrace. The views are far reaching along the valley and towards the swimming pool.

 

The apartment is entered directly from the terrace into the separate dinning room which has an extendible dining table and four chairs. A traditional archway then leads you through into the lounge, giving a spacious open plan feel. The lounge has two large comfortable sofas, a beautiful wood burning stove, exposed stone walls and terracotta floors. Leading from the lounge is a separate and fully equipped kitchen with granite worktop, fridge/freezer, microwave, oven, grill and hob.

 

There are two large dual aspect double bedrooms, one a king size bed the other with twin beds. Both rooms have high ceilings with chestnut beams and solid wood floors. The large family bathroom comes complete with a lovely free standing slipper bath, separate shower cubicle and fabulous old marble sink.

 

All the windows are fitted with Juliet bars for safety and external chestnut shutters allow guests to regulate the heat and light flow into the apartment.  Both bedrooms also have blackout blinds and ceiling fans for cooling.

• Outdoor hardwood dining table and chairs for six with large parasol
