Description from manager

Private structure (lease only) Bosco delle Monache stands on a hill in the midst of a pristine nature surrounded by woods which alternate with the typical vegetation of the area. In this enchanting naturalistic context on the green Umbrian hills, where peace and silence reign undisturbed, you will feel yourself at one with nature and enjoy this little corner of paradise. In paddocks inside the property are animals free to graze and you will get to know goats and sheep from up close; furthermore, under one of the many shaded areas set up in the garden is a small fenced-in pond with goldfish, water lilies and papyrus. We are in Torri, a little district of Gualdo Cattaneo, close to Todi, which can boast of a castle of great charm and rare beauty, founded in 1250 but with its origins dating back to the stone age. Bosco delle Monache, finished in 2010, has maintained intact the natural rustic feel of the area, evident in the exposed stone and travertine of the exterior and in the ceiling with chestnut-wood beams and terracotta tiles. The bedrooms are modern and comfortable and tastefully furnished. From the living area, consisting of sitting room, dining area and kitchen, you go directly out to the garden filled with wonderful scents and colours and with Virginia creeper climbing gently along the walls. The portico is set up for dining outdoors whilst admiring the breathtaking view over the little towns of Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo and Trevi. The pool is at a slightly lower level than the house, which is a few metres away, and is reached down a flight of steps from the portico. Within easy reach are the numerous places of natural, artistic and religious interest in the district. Todi is less than 20 minutes from the property and short trips will take you to some of the beautiful towns of central Italy, like Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto. The excellent motorway connections will take you to the nearby regions of Tuscany and Lazio.

Interior

The house has two floors, the ground floor and the basement, which is on the same level as the pool. The main entrance goes into an open-plan area with sitting room with air conditioning, dining room and kitchen which leads out to the portico arranged with brick-built barbecue, chairs and table for outdoor dining. This floor is completed by two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom, a study with queensize sofabed and two bathrooms with shower. In the basement, with entrance only from the outside, a few metres from the pool, is a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, a bathroom for use of the pool, a laundry room and a covered area with ping-pong table. Air conditioning in all the bedrooms. On the roof of the house, accessed only by an external staircase, is an unfurnished terrace from where you can enjoy the panorama.

Park

The peace, silence and pristine nature of this place are the same as they were centuries ago when this area belonged to the nuns, hence the name Bosco delle Monache (Wood of the Nuns).The property covers about 6 hectares and the entire perimeter of the 8000 sq m garden is enclosed. In the paddocks next to the garden are the animals, goats and sheep left free to graze and be admired as well as to keep the woods clean. Many shaded areas have been created in the garden with benches and tables and also a small fenced-in pond with goldfish, water lilies and papyrus. There are tall trees like oaks and holm oaks, fruit trees like cherries, figs, pomegranates and plums and all around the house are jasmine, wisteria and Virginia creeper. Outside the kitchen is the panoramic portico, above the pool, with wood-beamed roof and an area for outdoor dining which is furnished with a small sofa, an armchair, chairs, benches, table and a brick-built barbecue. A few metres past the automatic entrance gate in front of the house is a parking area with space for 4 cars.

Swimming Pool

The panoramic pool of Bosco delle Monache, facing out over the green hills and little towns of Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo and Trevi, is situated lower than the ground floor. It is reached down 12 steps and is on the same level as the basement which is only 5 metres away. The rectangular pool, lined in PVC, measures 8 x 4 m with the depth varying from 90 to 140 cm. There are two ladders for access to the water and it has chlorine purification and internal lighting. The sunbathing area is paved in terracotta along the perimeter of the pool and is provided with sunbeds, small table, little sofa, umbrella and a gazebo providing shade during the hottest hours. There is also a bathroom with shower. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday in October.
