Poggitello is a traditional stone farmhouse nestled into a lovely hollow in the hills near Fabro. Terracotta floors and beamed ceilings set the tone for an interior decorated in a comfortable country style with a mixture of antiques and modern pieces. The bedrooms are all located on the ground floor, each with a modern ensuite bathroom. At the heart of the house is a stunning open plan living area with large windows overlooking the garden and swimming pool with a wonderful view of the wooded hills beyond. A dining loggia off this room offers a splendid spot for al fresco meals. A broad sweep of lawn is encircled by trees and leads to the large swimming pool. Fabro is an ideal base for sightseeing in three provinces - Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio.
