Il Cripesso (the cypress) is a fully restored, free-standing farm house with the exterior construction in natural stone, typical  for Umbria and Tuscany. The entire house was completely renewed. It is located in the hilly landscape on the border of Umbria and Tuscany, between the medieval towns of Monteleone-di-Orvieto and Città-della-Pieve.  A very unique panorama offers views of Monteleone di Orvieto and onto the Amiata mountain

From the main entrance of the house you reach a large dining/living area with an open fire place, and an original oak-beamed ceiling. The living area has comfor- table armchairs and sofas, of which one opens into a single bed, as well as spa- cious, extendable dining table and chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and from its window you have a wonderful view of Monteleone di Orvieto.  From the living room  two window-doors open onto the terraces, one of which is covered and the other, bigger terrace is exposed but with an ample shade tree and pergola.

Off of the main living area there is a small bedroom with two single beds, a bathroom with a W.C., shower and sink, and a further lounge/TV-room with large sofas, one of which opens into a double bed, and may become another separate bedroom. A stairway from the main entrance leads you to a small hallway leading to two independent bedrooms. One has a matrimonial bed (140cm) and the other a double bed (160cm). A full bath with shower-tub-sink-bidet is located just outside of the bedrooms. The house has central heating. The system provides also the two bathrooms and the kitchen with hot water. The house is equipped with brick colour ceramic floors and wood beam ceilings in order to maintain the original character of the farmhouse. There is a garden which belongs to the house with shading trees, which, around the house is in an even position, going into a slope behind the house with an olive grove and fruit trees. The ground is approx. 3500 sqare meters. There are lawn chairs, sun umbrella etc. at your disposal and ample parking places for the car are available on the grounds.

Fabro-Scalo is the closest shopping area and only 10 minutes by car from the house. Here you will find all first need shopping possibilities as well as well as the train station. Typical restaurants are in the nearby Santa Maria, Monteleone-di-Orvieto, Città-della-Pieve and Chiusi.
