Arcelle is a lovely stone-built farmhouse with an attached guest house, set in the enchanting Umbrian countryside. It is within easy reach of the town of Umbertide and the Tuscan border. It is the perfect location from which to explore the area, famed for its cultural and historical attractions such as the towns of Siena, Cortona and Gubbio.
Between the two buildings is a pergola, which is equipped for dining ‘al fresco’ while you enjoy the panorama.
The villa has a private swimming pool set on a raised terrace in the large garden and enjoys stunning views of the rolling Umbrian hills. There is ample comfortable garden and pool furniture available.
This villa has been recently renovated both inside and out, building onto the original medieval walls in order to expose their beauty and give the house a rustic and authentic feel. The spacious interior has been lovingly restored using 19th Century oak beams for the ceilings. It also boasts stone fireplaces and old terracotta floors.
The little village of Spedalicchio is only 3 kms away and has a food shop and coffee bar. For a wider choice of shopping facilities, Umbertide is about 11kms away.

I go to Italy every year to visit family and enjoy the beautiful country. Home in Italy is my choice for renting places to stay. Each house is wonderful. The staff at Home in Italy is great. I highly recommend their services,

Very comfortable and quite villa. Like many villas the kitchen is a bit sparse but functional. The upstairs bathroom emanates the stench of sewer gas that wafts out into the rest of the villa. While this is common in places like Guatemala I have not had this problem in other places in Italy.

The pool is very nice. The area is very quite and beautiful. The local agritourism resturant was fantastic.

Luca the owner is very nice and responsive to any problems.

During our stay we suffered a forced entry robbery, and ransacking of the villa while out for the day. A chain and padlock was quickly provided pending repair of the door.

The beds were comfortable.

The house and the service were perfect. We really enjoy our stay at Arcelle, as the house was very comfortable, well furnished and equipped, and well located for our visits to the nicest places of Toscana and Umbria. The garden too was very enjoyable. I recommend this house in particular and Home in Italy for their kindness, helpfulness and professionalism.

Thank you for everything.

We felt at home, infact we are interested in purchasing Arcelle if the owner ever decides to sell. We loved living in the home and living with local people. The local Agritourism restaurant is excellent. Thank you we will return next year.
