Where the rivers Nestore and Tiber meet in the upper regions of Umbria, you find the small charming town of Verna di Umbertide. This monastery, which now forms part of Agriturismo Nestore, once belonged to the Abbot of Petroia. Later it was passed on to the Rossi family, who today owns both the monastery and the farm.
The old 18th century farmhouse has been converted to eight spacious and well designed apartments with stone floors and antique furniture, that can each accommodate between two and six people. The apartments all have TV, kitchen facilities, telephone and bathroom. You can use the good sized pool (18 x 6m), mountain bikes, free Wi-Fi and various games. There is a comprehensive path system in the woods around the farm where you can go for walks or bike rides of between 4 and 40 km. Within a relatively short distance from the farm, it is also possible to go fishing, horse riding and hire canoes.

There is a bar in the small village of Verna di Umbertide, but not much else. Fortunately you can enjoy a good and rustic meal at the farm itself several times a week. The nearest station is called Ranchi and from there you can catch the local train, operated by Ferrovia Centrale Umbra, to Umbertide and Perugia. These cities are connected to the state railways.
All the apartments are beautifully furnished and restored, and are fitted with telephone and TV. However the kitchen facilities are simple but practical and all have four burners.
Please note: During mid August half board is possible (see supplement below).
