The apartment, just in front of the town's ancient 15th century walls, features a large private secluded garden ideal for al fresco dining (for your use only). All previous guests have enjoyed the homely and pleasantly welcoming atmosphere. Safe parking just outside the house. A car is not necessary you can use public transport to most places.

Utility room nearby where you can use the washing machine, ironing board etc.
The apartment is in the heart of Sansepolcro, literally two minutes ON FOOT from the historic centre and all its many excellent and affordable restaurants, shops and bars. There’s parking just outside the house and if you prefer to use public transport your hosts (who live above the apartment) will be happy to help you with local transport services, or indeed anything else.
In Sansepolcro you’ll experience the joy of living in a true Italian town not yet inundated with mass tourism. During the late afternoon and evening join in the ‘passegiata’ the walk from one end of the town to the other. The local piazza and bars are abuzz with people meandering and greeting each other. Stroll around the lively Tuesday and Saturday markets when the main street is lined with stalls selling everything under the sun. Festivals, wine and food events are constant during the year both in Tuscany and nearby Umbria. In the summer you can walk (5 mins) to the large olympic swimming pool set in beautiful pine woods.
A truly perfect staring point from which to discover marvellous towns and surrounding countryside. Nearby trips within the hour Cortona, Assisi, Arezzo, Anghiari, Perugia, Gubbio and about 1 hour and a half Florence, Siena, Gubbio, Montepluciano, San Gimignano, the adriatic coast, Lake Trasimeno (Rome 2.30 hours). The list is endless.
The owner is willing to accompany guests to Florence and other cities.
