PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

5 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps nine, grand piano, books, paintings, toys

This ancient farmhouse with beamed ceilings, fire-places and terracotta floors has grown room by room over many generations of farming folk. It once housed some fifty people and their animals. The tower dates from as far back as Dante, when Guelf stalked Ghibelline in territorial wars along the nearby Tiber. Easily reached but secluded from asphalt roads, its rural character is intact in spite of microwave, central heating and Free Wi-Fi, There are nooks and books for quiet and solitude even during large family gatherings; a grand piano and a guitar for the musical. It is a little paradise for children who can cavort in three garden areas at different levels, these furnished with benches, outside tables, hammocks and a croquet set.

About Elizabeth Linley Widmann

We are a couple of worldly veterans: an art historian, myself, and a war reporter and political columnist, my husband.. Having lived in some nine countries of Latin America, Asia and Europe, as well as in the U.S., this house with all its garden and pool has been the most permanent feature in our nomadic lives. We bought the Umbria Tower House when my husband was transferred as a correspondent from New Delhi to Rome. It has been a joyful work-in-progress and holiday home when our three children were small, and a family residence for almost two decades, since they are now scattered all over the world. It is a perfect meeting place for all of us and our friends, and now even for our grandchildren's friends. Our youngest grandson recently celebrated the end of his high-school days at the Umbria Tower House - with nine friends and fellow graduates from Amsterdam...

Elizabeth Linley Widmann purchased this farmhouse in 1980

Why Elizabeth Linley Widmann chose Baschi

We fell in love with the area, the beautiful countryside replete with history, art, exquisite towns and medieval villages. Weeks, even months, are not enough to get to know the treasures, the beauties of the region. Unlike Tuscany, beautiful as it is, Umbria is not packed with tourists in the summer months.

What makes this farmhouse unique

It is an ideal place for family holidays, couple retreats, group gatherings or get togethers. Should you be interested you can get to know the locals and expats of the whole area in the little bar in Acqualoreto when they come together for a drink every Wednesday evening.
