What are the good features of the property and location

The ‘Casa degli Orizzonti’ is situated in between olive plantations, apricot, almond, cherry, plums, wallnut trees, pines, cypresses, vineyards and fields of sunflowers. It is located about 1 km from Monte Castello di Vibio, a typical Italian Umbrian medieval village built on a hill top. The view of the river Tiber and the medieval city of Tody nearby and the all surroundings with etruscan sites, have inspired poets and painters for centuries.
The environment guarantees a high level of privacy. No roads, no neighbours nearby, and cars have to be parked about 50mt from the house up hill. The village is 10 min. walk from the house (700mt.) where major facilities like shops, bakery, post office, bank, bar and restaurant are available. There are cultural events performed in the piazzas and in the “smallest theatre of the world”, and art-classes for painting and music are offered.
Monte Castello is well connected by buses and train, also to large cities like Perugia, Firenze, Rome and Napoli. Therefore, car is not essential. view is special, cousy, airy and beautifull. In the garden there are many trees. Perfect for retreiving from city life and be into nature, writing book, remote work, visual art, and also near to a beautiful village where one has all facilities. The garden offers fruits like charries, lots of mirabelle, cachi ( wich are not very known outside Italy), stroubery grapes with wich it is possible to make a very special juce, olive to make 7 liters of oil, wallnuts and almonds

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

They should be able to use a fire wood stove for heating the house, parking the car would be some 70 meter from the house. Paying the utilities they consum ( water, electric and the gas for their cooking). About this I can send what the previus house sitters have paied.
