In the beautiful hills of the green heart of Italy, on the border between Umbria and
Le Marche lies this fully restored sixteenth-century estate. The surrounding sixteen hectares of forest and meadow are calling for you every morning and are ideal for relaxing walks in complete peace and quiet.
For hundreds of years, the property was the home of a large family of farmers. After a full interior restoration, it was used the last six years as a small hotel with restaurant for the guests. Because of the various communal areas, it is also often rented out for weddings, workshops and family events. The possibilities are diverse: use the villa for commercial purposes or as private property made available for families and thereby have the opportunity to invite several guests. Given the space, guests have a luxurious private residence, but they also have the option to dine together with a large party of thirty people in the cozy dining room or outside on the terrace with a breathtaking view.
VILLA AND STUDIO
The estate consists of a 'Casa Padronale' (the villa) with six luxury rooms with bathroom, three cozy apartments and a studio. Two of the three apartments are located in an authentic residence next to the villa and the comfortable studio is completely detached on the property. The living space of the latter three buildings is approximately 750 sqm. The villa is equipped with a beautiful office/reception. In the original kitchen you can find a library/lounge with a large authentic fireplace. On the ground floor, there is a spacious professional kitchen and a very attractive restaurant converted from the former authentic stables. There is also a playground for children, a spacious parking area and a beautiful large pool with several terraces spread over the entire area. For golf lovers there is a phenomenal 18-hole golf course within forty minutes drive from the villa. Mountain and sports enthusiasts are well catered to with the mountains in the immediate vicinity. Here, various sporting challenges await them. Horse riding is possible in Pietralunga, but also in Città di Castello. And hidden in the hills you would not expect the distance to the sea - the Adriatic - to be only forty minutes.
Unique to the villa, situated on a hilltop with impressive views, is that it has been very well maintained over the years. The original structure, built of stone and thick oak beams, is still complete. Very little of the authenticity has disappeared. The oldest part of the building dates back to the year 1000. The Maltese cross, which you can find above one of the old entrances, indicates that the Crusaders previously visited this property as a resting place during their various trips. There are also ancient niches, stairways, arches, family chapel and many other original and historical details provided. It breathes a centuries long history. The other part of the uniqueness of this property lies in the fact that, recently, it was completely renovated and is equipped with every modern comfort and luxury, without damage to the value of the historical features.
Umbria, also known as the green heart of Italy, is overflowing with breathtaking views. The region is bordered to the east by the Apennine Mountains and the area is rough and erratic. The green region is wedged between Tuscany and Le Marche. Here, the third university town of Italy is located: Perugia, a city famous for its chocolate. Also world famous is Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis, after whom the present pope has lent his name. Umbria is more modest than Tuscany, but on all fronts just as worthy visiting. Examples include Orvieto because of its great location on a plateau and the beautiful Orvieto Classico wines, but also Città di Castello, Gubbio and the easily accessible Marche towns of Urbino, Senegallia and Fano are beautiful and well worth a visit.
