Podere Casenove agritourism farm is located in Umbria in a section of the community of Citerna in the province of Perugia in a prominent position with regard to the Valtiberina.
Our vacation apartments are set in greenery and set on a panoramic hill overlooking the entire Umbrian and Tuscan Valley.
Our hospitality facility was created based on an antique farmhouse finely renovated according to the local Umbrian traditions; it is composed of four independent apartments and a private pool available to the guests.
We are in close contact with nature and surrounded by great landscape, religious, and cultural wealth, yet close to the modern conveniences offered by the main centers of Valtiberina such as Sansepolcro and Città di Castello, just minutes away by car.
This is the ideal environment for all those who seek quiet without giving up modern conveniences.
The agritourism farm "Podere Casenove" is located among the green hills of Alta Umbria, near some of the most popular tourist destinations of Umbria, Tuscany, Marche, and Romagna. It is set on a hill with a fabulous panorama over the entire Alta Valle del Tevere at 330 meters above sea-level, in the ancient Etruscan community of Citerna, the territory of which was also densely populated in Roman era.
The beauty and the attractiveness of these places inspired the statement of Pliny the Younger: "You will find great pleasure in viewing this region from the heights of the hill; in fact, you will feel that you have discovered not just a territory, but a painting of incredible mastery."
Our hospitality facilities are surrounded by a large green space, completely fenced and independent, with a garden, 2 pools (for adults of 12x6 meters and for children from 4x3 meter), parking, and a canopy for motorcycles or bicycles.
The four apartments of the agritourism farm are carefully furnished and have a large green space and solarium for a relaxing stay.
For centuries, the Podere Casenove farm was the property of the Family Canosci; until 1984, it was a business conducted with a "Mezzadria Contract" since the land was cultivated by the family of the so-called "Mezzadro (tenant farmer)" who lived in the farmhouse.
Up to that period, the farm was composed of:
- Agricultural land of 5.20 hectares (of which 5 hectares were crop land and 0.20 hectares used as vineyards);
- Farmhouse used as a residence for the tenant farmer;
- Roofed area in front of the farmhouse with a wood stove;
- Open shed used for storing agricultural tools;
- Building used as a barn;
- Building used for drying white tobacco produced on our lands;
- Large field belonging to the buildings indicated above called "Aia."
After the 1984 termination of the Mezzadria Contract (Contract for metayage ) with direct cultivation by the owners, and followed by consistent renovations, the farmhouse became the summer vacation home of the owner's family.
Beginning in 2000, additional restoration work was begun to be consistent with the local residences, including wooden beams, tile, part of the walls with exposed masonry etc., intended to gradually launch a new Agritourism activity.
Hospitality activities began 2002, managed with loving care directly by Mrs. Luigina, wife of the owner.
