Rustic house with a beautiful view set on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. Fully fenced garden and swimming pool, ideal for holidays with your 4-legged friends. About 5 km away lies the characteristic village of Mercatale.


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).

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.

 Azzurra (Italia) - dicembre 2022

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

 Flavio (Italia) - giugno 2022

Favolosa la villa e favoloso il posto! Il proprietario è super gentile e sempre pronto a dare suggerimenti ed informazioni.

 Alessandra (Italia) - aprile 2022

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!

Quest’anno abbiamo deciso, io con il mio gruppo, di passare il periodo di capodanno presso la “Casa La Primula”.

Il proprietario, Mirko, è davvero una persona disponibilissima, dal momento della prenotazione fino al check out.
Consiglio questa soluzione a tutti coloro che vogliono passare una vacanza in tranquillità, immersi nel verde toscano.

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. 

D. Barbara (Italia) - giugno 2021

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!

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 !

We had a wonderful time at Casa La Primula. A lovely house, tastefully redecorated and very comfortable. It has all the luxury you need and more, e.g. a bbq and a pizza oven. The pool is super and big enough for 6 persons. The house is situated in the mountains, which gives you a feeling of space and privacy, but is nearby all the sites one wants to see.
The owner is kind and service oriented, is easily reached and helps out whenever necessary.

 Lisa (USA) - settembre 2018 The property was lovely and the house was very charming. The owner was absolutely wonderful and very helpful. We went in September, and there happened to be a lot of insects. Nothing about the property - just the time of year. The house is very remote, and getting up the long gravel road had some challenges, but once your up there it's wonderful. Very relaxing. Make sure you tell the owner to renew the wi-fi as it went out while we were there. Also - the TV only gets Italian channels - so be prepared with games or iPads (if the wi-fi) is working. Overall a very nice retreat and gorgeous views.
 Rodney (Australia) - giugno 2018 The villa was good value and a great place to get away from it all. We loved our time there. Well located to explore the fabulous surrounding areas. Just one thing though , make sure you have a small all wheel drive for the road getting to it.

Beautiful views!

Beautiful views! Comfortable villa for 8-9 people, we were 1 week…: ) There was a lot of thing to do, it’s located in 2 - 2.5 hour drive to Rome, Florence, Pisa, San Marino, so it could be a good starting point. If you want to relax there is also what to do: swimming pool, walks in the Woods, etc. Good equipment inside, the owner very polite and not disturbing the rest : ) Total outback - 4 km there is no neighbor around : ) Madness! The road to access to the house is a bit problematic and quite steep, it’s better to do it with a regular car, we did it anyway : ). A bit far from shops, you have to plan your shopping. Some insects, but not embarrassing - in the end we are in open country.. : )

Rustic stone house with panoramic view and beautiful pool area

Benefits - comfortable old house, clean and big enough for 9 guests, - beautiful pool area, - grill and pizza oven, - really quiet location, perfect for relaxing holiday, - kindly and helpful owners, - friendly price Disadvantages - partially difficult route, - mosquito nets are not the best, - kitchen furniture is used up. We had a relaxing holiday in June on these beautiful location. Cortona is a really gorgeous city with visitor friendly peoples... and the italian coffee is sensational!
f. Maurits (HOLLAND) - agosto 2015 Nice house, with very friendly owner
Engelhardt Klaus (Deutschland) - giugno 2015 Wir haben in diesem wunderschönen Haus einen 14-tägigen Familienurlaub mit 9 Erwachsenen Ende Mai/Anfang Juni 2015 verbracht.Das Haus liegt wunderschön einsam gelegen und bietet, was die Innenausstattung angeht, alles, was das Herz begehrt. Auch die Gartenanlage mit Pool ist sehr gepflegt und lädt an sonnigen Tagen mit schönen mit ihren lauschigen von Pflanzen umrankten Pergolen zum Verweilen ein.Den Außengrill haben wir häufig genutzt und auch einmal den sagenhaften Pizzabackofen.Lediglich der an manchen Stellen steile Anfahrtsweg wäre zu bemängeln. Aber dafür entschädigt die Aussicht und die Stille am Abend.Besonders hervorzuheben ist die schnelle Hilfsbereitschaft bei allen Problemen und Fragen durch den Besitzer Mirko.
