Esperienza a Fighille
Il soggiorno presso l’agriturismo Podere Casenove è stato bellissimo, poco distante dalle località più rinomate, l’accoglienza e la disponibilità dei proprietari sono impeccebili, la proprietà offre ogni tipo di comodità, l’appartamento grazioso, ben arredato e curato. Pulizia impeccabile, consigliamo un soggiorno nella proprietà
grazie delle bellissime parole.
Der richtige Ort für einen entspannten Urlaub . Super schöner Pool und Garten - ideal für Urlaub mit Kindern. Liebevoll eingerichtete Wohnung mit überdachter Terasse. Ausblick und Umgebung machen Umbrien alle Ehre: wirklich das grüne Herz Italiens. Vermieter sprechen nur wenig englisch, aber mit ein wenig Engagement von beiden Seiten klappt die Kommunikation trotzdem recht gut. Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit unserem Urlaub und kommen bestimmt wieder. Vielen Dank. Grazie mille.
Siamo felici per il Vostro soggiorno positivo presso di noi e Vi ringraziamo tanto per la Vostra recensione.

Itineraries and surroundings
The Podere Casenove farmhouse is located only 6 kilometers from the Renaissance town of Sansepolcro, birthplace of Piero della Francesca, Luca Pacioli and Cherubino Alberti, and 9 kilometers from Città di Castello.
Borgo Sansepolcro in Tuscany
Our holiday apartments are located on the border line between the Alta Valle del Tevere Umbra and the Valtiberina Toscana; this valley is a large basin formed to fill Lake Tiberino occurred in the Pliocene age and crossed by the Tiber river for about 50 km.
This predominantly mountainous territory is the crossroads of four regions (Tuscany, Umbria, Romagna and Marche) that give it multiform influences in architecture, in customs and traditions, in artisanal and gastronomic products, up to the same language, determining a very particular character Tuscan context.
La Vallata presents to the visitor a sweet and evocative landscape of the valley floor, characterized by rivers and streams, groves and farmhouses, while from the overlying hills overlook picturesque rural villages and ancient castles.
Farmhouse Podere Casenove in Valtiberina
The Municipality of Citerna is located in the province of Perugia in the center of the Valtiberina.
The territory of Cittern consists mainly of agricultural land (on which the local economy is based) and hills covered by woods.
Citerna is considered the "terrace" of the Tiber Valley; from here you can admire, with a simple glance, the whole valley crossed by the river Tiber that starts from Città di Castello and extends until you reach Sansepolcro.
Thanks to its beauty and to the panorama that can be admired, Citerna is one of the "most beautiful villages in Italy".
The monuments that can be admired in this medieval village are: the Fortress (a fortification of Lombard origin that has been recently restored), the Church of S. Michele Arcangelo (where a magnificent Madonna with Child is preserved), the Church of San Francesco ( probably built in memory of the passage of the Saint Francis of Assisi to Citerna) and Palazzo Prosperi with its medieval walkway (also called "of the lovers" and home to interesting small exhibitions).
The history of the Tuscan Valtiberina
The Valtiberina Toscana was in the past a meeting ground between different civilizations: Umbrian, Etruscan, Byzantine and Longobard. The Roman patricians at the time of Caesar Augustus noticed their beauty and built villas there. Subsequently the Church and the abbots erected solid monasteries while the saints discovered, often in hidden corners, places suitable to satisfy their anxiety of mysticism, so much so that even today resist majestic places of faith such as the hermitages of Cerbaiolo, Montecasale, Casella and the Sanctuaries of Petriolo, Belvedere and Canoscio.
The birthplace of many renowned artists, including Michelangelo Buonarrotti and Piero della Francesca, has maintained its artistic vocation over time.
Reduced countries such as Anghiari, Citerna, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Montone: castles and medieval towers, parishes and scattered farmhouses overlook the green hills that slope down into the valley. In the center of the valley, Città di Castello is the most important and most populated settlement, rich in medieval and Renaissance monuments that bear witness to its historic role as a crossroads between Florence, Urbino, Perugia and Rome.
The population of the Valley, respectful of the ecological balance, is mindful of its traditions and is proud of its industriousness.
Even today, in fact, the main and most developed working sectors are those related to the production of furniture in style, to ceramic processing, to textile craftsmanship, to iron processing, to jewelery, to typography and to paper converting.
