This little stone cottage is located in the unspoilt terraced village of Pontecuti. Originally a Roman encampment, its name—pons castrum a cuti—meant corner bridge, as this was the only means of crossing the Tiber outside of Rome. The house is situated about halfway up in the village, reached by a flight of stone steps with no vehicular access but with easy parking 100 metres away. It has a small private garden, which overlooks the river in one direction and towards nearby hills with vineyards and olive trees in the other.

The cottage retains its 17th century character, but has been carefully restored and updated with basic 20th century amenities. Nestled among the other village houses, the cottage is small but comfortable and is on two floors. The ground floor consists of a sitting room with a large fireplace and kitchenette with a small fridge and stove. The bedroom, reached by a small spiral staircase, has a beautiful view over the countryside. The bathroom is also upstairs with a shower and bidet. The furnishings are included in the price. The house, has fine chestnut window frames and shutters, and hand wrought iron ‘french’ doors upstairs.

Mains water, mains electricity are connected. There is no telephone at present but this would not present any problem to connect.

Pontecuti has both a cafe/bar and a small shop for essentials at the foot of the steps by the river, but the surrounding area has a wide variety of shops with local produce such as cheeses, olive oil, truffles and wine. There is a good municipal pool just outside Todi, and several lakes within easy driving distance. The ancient town of Todi is a 5-minute drive.

The property has been let successfully at a price of £235 - £335 per week for two persons.

Casina Anna is very small but adjoining is a larger property (approx 80 sq. mts), one up one down plus enormous empty barn linking the houses. The adjoining cottage also has a terraced garden with fruit trees and a small stone shed (170 sq. mts). It is dry and partly re-roofed but would benefit further restoration and combine with Casina Anna to make a very attractive and comfortable home.

PRICE: Casina Anna € 110,000. Adjoining cottage: € 70,000
