Welcome to a charming country home nestled in the heart of Italy's scenic landscapes — Umbria, Perugion, in the town of Castiglione del Lago. This appealing country house dates back to the 1600s and have been meticulously renovated as recently as 2014.

This beautiful home, known as 'The Miracles House', forms part of an historic monastic village dating back to the 17th century. Nearby you'll discover an old church adding character and distinction to this locale. This single bedroom property boasts breathtaking panoramic views over rolling hills and is located just a few steps away from the border between Umbria and Tuscany.

The jewel in the crown of the area is the two serene lakes — Lake Chiusi, 2 miles away and Lake Trasimeno, a mere 5 miles away. Living here means you're encased in nature's mural, painted with vibrant colours and undulating forms of the countryside.

The house is split across two floors, maintaining its original rustic charm with the stone and terracotta brick facade. Traditional materials were used to renovate this property, ensuring that the rustic appeal of local country houses was retained.

The location also offers both the solitude of the countryside for private dwellers and the potential for short-term tourist rentals — a great source of secondary income.
