The ancient rural residence is in the middle of an untouched natural landscape, an ideal location for holidays for those who love absolute peace and silence, a few miles away from artistic and cultural centres of Umbria and central Italy.

The space

This ancient rural residence, now a holiday home, is in the heart of Umbria, within farmland bordering on the ancient Via Flaminia, between Narni and Foligno. It is in the middle of an untouched natural landscape, an ideal location for holidays for those who love absolute peace and silence, a few miles away from artistic and cultural centres of Umbria and central Italy.

The country house, formerly a watchtower belonging to the Middle Ages defence system, later transformed into a farm, is now a holiday home. It is surrounded by a 44 acres of farmland property, consisting of wood, fields, olive grove and a vineyard. The house was renovated in 1970.

Guest access

The interior has antique furniture and a total surface of 250 m2, on three floors.

The ground floor has two large rooms with a fireplace and a big kitchen (with a wood cooking stove), wash room, toilet and pantry. Next to the kitchen there is a rustic dining room (‘taverna’) with its wood stove, wood oven and a big fireplace for barbecuing;

The first floor has two double en suite rooms (single beds or double bed), each one with its own bathroom and wardrobe, and a study;

The second floor has two double bedrooms and one bathroom.

Outdoors there are two porticos and a tree-lined yard for a pleasant stay, whereas the surrounding woods offer the chance for relaxing walks among the green hills of Umbria.

Wir haben mehr als vier Wochen an diesem traumhaften Ort verbracht und uns vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag pudelwohl gefühlt. Wir wurden sehr herzlich von Alessio und seinen Eltern empfangen und konnten uns von ihnen und von Gianni und seiner Familie immer Hilfe in allen Bereichen holen. Das Haus ist von Innen wie von Aussen wunderschön und es war uns trotz Temperaturen über 35 Grad dank der Schattenplätze und dem Haus, nie zu warm. Zudem hat es eine vollständige Ausstattung, die auch für grosse Gruppen bequem ausreicht. Auch die Gegend hat uns sehr gut gefallen, sie lädt zu Ausflügen, zum Wandern und Laufen ein. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder und bedanken uns herzlich! Raphael und Hannah
