The apartment is strategically located above the main piazza in the city and has a bird’s eye view of the weekly farmer’s market, and the Tiber river. The location of this apartment means that you will not need to find a stair master or a gym, as the apartment is located on the 3rd floor. Listen, if the 80 year old woman who lived in the apartment can make those stairs, you can too! Being on the top floor not only provides you with exercise, but also provides you with sunlight and views! Another advantage is you do not need to worry about any noise above you.
This is a perfect second home with potential as an Air B&B. It is in a secure building, across from the police department, so all you have to do when you leave is lock the security door and go. If interested, we can provide you the name of a property manager who can maintain the property between visits. The apartment was purchased 8 years ago and perfectly restored to American standards in 2011. The original purchase price was €120,000, and there have been about €50,000 in upgrades, so it is very well priced.
Home ownership in Italy is easier than buying a car. You do not need to be a resident, but you do need an Italian bank account. We have been through this process several times, and can help you through it. In Italy, a notary does the paper work, handles all of the details, and we can recommend an excellent one.
If you were to take a pin and drop it dead center on the map of Italy, you would likely land on the town of Umbertide. Located among the rolling hills in the Green Heart of Italy, as Umbria is known, Umbertide is a liveable, walkable city with a rich and proud history. Because of its strategic location along the Tiber river, which eventually wends its way down to Rome, Umbertide was an important market for the original Umbrian population of first the Etruscans and later the Romans.
Although Umbertide is not a tourist town, it offers an interesting mix of monuments, forts and other historic buildings. If you are looking to experience daily life in an authentic Italian small town, you will find that Umbertide provides a living example of the lifestyle you seek.
