This stunning Umbrian is a true dream house. Totally renovated, combining all the modern needs, together with the original 17th-century details. Conveniently located at just a few minutes from some of the most beautiful Umbrian villages.
This property offers a tranquil stylish retreat and gateway opportunity to explore the Italian countryside!
The oldest part of the house dates from 1665. These big Umbrian walls keep the house cool in the summer and warm during wintertime. The property, with its large windows and terraces all around, has a splendid 180 degrees view over the valley with its distant Sibillini mountaintops.
The infinity pool overlooking the valley and the beautiful garden are serene and inviting. You can always choose to relax in the shadow during the warm long summer or enjoy the sun.
In the outside wall facing the valley, there is an original working pizza oven. You’re welcome to make your own pizzas there.
In the near surroundings, you’ll find the typical beautiful Umbrian villages and cities like Todi, Orvieto, Assisi, and Perugia.
Roman history is all around you. If you are a medieval or renaissance art lover you’re in the right spot. Every trip offers you the calming green landscape with vineyards, olive yards, and sunflowers. Wine and olive oil tasting is a lovely activity to do in the famous vineyards of Montefalco, only half an hour drive through the stunning landscape. On every hilltop is a medieval village to visit!
The churches are full of fresco’s, Spoleto’s Duomo is especially worthwhile.
The local Umbrian cuisine is simple, pure, and superb! You can try, but we gave up competing with the local nonna’s making their lovely pasta’s, meat and vegetable dishes. Always fresh from their own land, always handmade.
The great position: located two hours from Florence, two hours from Rome, one and half hours from the Adriatic coast (Ancona) one hour from the Tuscan city Cortona (Famous for the movie "Under the Tuscan sun” and Dardano’s Chianina steak!), one hour from Lake Trasimeno, one and half hour from Siena (Tuscany). It is the perfect spot to discover the heart of Italy!
