2012 shares of Casa Leone LLC-  deeded ownership (4 weeks) of this 2 bedroom, 2 bath hilltop home - $63900


Umbria, Italy

Will this be the year for us  to stretch our wings and nourish our souls?  I'm ready for that & hope you are too as many of my readers are nearing retirement and could begin actually living abroad for one or more months each year.  French Property Shares has become International Property Shares with our first ever Italian beauty- Casa Leone LLC. Why Umbria?


  Lonely Planet says it far better than me: "Leave Rome its Colosseum and Venice its canals. Let Tuscany have its masterpieces, along with its long lines. Umbria is the slow food, slow travel capital of Italy."  



Italian Cafe
Lingering over dinner with family & friends
This lovely agricultural region has an impressive share of art and history, but its isolation as a Papal state during the Renaissance means its medieval history has been well preserved. Tourism marketing? No way. Umbrians are too busy lingering over dinner with friends and family, growing organic lentils or strolling through the piazza during the evening's passeggiata.

Monteleone d'Orvieto


Monteleone d'Orvieto has great views over the countryside


 * Location- situated on a hilltop, Monteleone D'Orvieto is easy to reach from either Florence or Rome and is close to several lively Umbrian towns, notably Orvieto whose wine is so renowned.
* This village has charm and character but is not over-ridden with tourists so our owners will get the real flavor of Italy. Click here for website- 

* Monteleone D'Orvieto has a well-known summer festival and in December is transformed into a replica of Bethlehem drawing tourists from around Italy.  This makes Casa Leone an ideal home base year round.
* The village has all the amenities you might seek on a day to day basis including good restaurants, two supermarkets, shops, post office, bank, catholic church, a pharmacy, herbalist's shop, hair stylist and tennis court -  The fish vendor comes every Wednesday in the village, and every Thursday there is the open market.
