Casa La Primula is a farmhouse situated on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, in an extremely panoramic position with an evocative view of Pierle Castle, an ancient fortress of feudal origin, which makes it as if suspended in time. It takes a little effort to get up here, the 2.5 km road is almost all unpaved and very steep (not recommended for sports cars), but once on spot you will be rewarded with true peace in the middle of nature and above all with an exceptional view. When you want to emerge from your refuge, about 5 km away you will find the villages of Mercatale, in Tuscany, and Lisciano Niccone, in Umbria. We recommend a day trip to the characteristic Cortona, which can be reached in about 20 minutes by car.

In the gazebo in the garden you can dine in front of the sunset; for your barbecues or pizzas in company there are also a barbecue and a wood-burning oven. The fence makes the house ideal for a holiday with your four-legged friends. For both of you there is plenty of space in the green and the possibility, for those who love trekking, of long walks along the numerous paths in the woods. The swimming pool is private and reserved for your exclusive use (size 5x10 m. - depth 1,20 - 2,30 m., completely fenced - open from 11 May to 30th September).

Besides the view, you'll love the simplicity of Casa La Primula, the rustic Tuscan style furniture and the facilities guarantee all the comforts and at the same time take you back to the rural traditions of times gone by.
You can also ask Mirko, the owner, for a little shopping, and he will make sure you get your favourite food the evening of your arrival. Mirko has a passion for cooking and has obtained the qualification of Agrichef, and will be happy to cook typical Tuscan dishes for you with the genuine products of his company or of other local companies.

    Très belle

    Très belle maison perdue dans la montagne Toscane (un chemin de terre et de cailloux permet de rejoindre La Primula - attention, les premières fois c'est effrayant : pilote averti nécessaire !). Tranquillité assurée ! Mirko nous a accueilli et fait visiter sa maison : très bien équipée, quatre grandes chambres permettant à chacun d'avoir son intimité, un lave vaisselle, un barbecue, un grand salon de jardin et surtout : une très grande piscine privative avec vue imprenable sur la vallée ! Très bonne communication avec le propriétaire, il a été hyper réactif pour répondre à nos demandes ! La maison est située à 5-10 minutes en voiture d'un village où vous trouverez tout le nécessaire pour faire vos courses. Plutôt bien localisée : elle est située entre Cortona (à visiter absolument !), du lago Trasimeno (prenez le bateau pour la isola Maggiore, à 1h15 de Siena et 1h50 de Firenze. A recommander pour des vacances à la campagne entre amis !

    Great views

    This country house in Mercatale was amazing. Located in a very wild nature from one side and beautiful and traditional indoor from other side. That was exactly what we were looking for. A lot of utilities to have dinners and little family parties, pool with a nice garden, different levels of landscape, a lot of space outside, quiet and very peaceful. Even if it is a steep slope to the house, it is definitely worth it to stay there and enjoy the views and nature in comfort.

    Il soggiorno è stato molto piacevole. La posizione della casa è davvero tranquilla e le dotazioni della casa e del giardino consentono varie attività senza muoversi da casa (zona barbecue, calcio balilla, piscina durante la stagione, sedie tavoli e panche nel giardino). Stanze comode e ben riscaldate, cucina bene dotata di stoviglie ed attrezzatura. Grazie!

    siamo stati bene

    Casa molto carina e corrispondente alle aspettative. Perfetta per una vacanza con amici con grande area comune e cucina ben attrezzata.

    Bellissimo casale con tanto spazio esterno ed interno! Una vista incredibile della valle, silenzio e tanta natura attorno! Strada sterrata in salita di circa 2,5km per raggiungerlo ma questo è ben indicato! Mirko è stato gentilissimo e disponibilissimo con noi sin dal nostro arrivo. Cuoco eccezionale, se vi capita fatevi cucinare un pranzo o una cena! Ne vale la pena!

    New year's eve

    This year, my group and I decided to spend the New Year's Eve at "Casa La Primula". The house is very cozy and really big. It is served with all the comforts to spend a pleasant holiday. The owner, Mirko, is really a very helpful person, from the moment of booking to check out. I recommend this solution to all those who want to spend a peaceful holiday, immersed in the Tuscan countryside.

    Das Haus liegt sehr idyllisch mitten in einem bewaldeten Berg. Die Zufahrt zum Haus ist etwas beschwerlich, weil es eine ziemlich steile Schotterstraße ist. Aber alles möglich. Das nächste Städtchen ist eine knappe halbe Stunde Autofahrt entfernt. Wir haben von Dachs bis Fuchs alles im Garten beobachten können. War sehr schön. Tolles Haus und vor allem ein toller Pool.

    splendida villa

    La casa La primula oltre ad essere molto bella e accogliente, è situata in una posizione meravigliosa, isolata quanto basta per avere silenzio e tranquillità. Il paesaggio è stupendo, la piscina curata, grande, davvero un bel posto per passare dei giorni tranquilli e sereni. La casa ha tantissimi spazi, camere da letto grandissime e arredate benissimo. Inoltre c'è una comoda lavanderia esterna ed è presente una ghiacciaia e un frigorifero in più oltre a quello in cucina, utilissimi per le scorte di cibo. La cucina è fornita di qualunque elettrodomestico e stoviglia. Il proprietario, Mirko, è una persona eccezionale, molto gentile e disponibile (lo abbiamo contattato più volte per alcune cose ed è stato sempre velocissimo ad intervenire). Consiglio a tutti questa splendida villa!
