Description from manager

Owner's description:

Dominating a suggestive valley in the heart of Umbria

This is one of the most exclusive private country estates in Italy owned by the same family for generations. The estate with its castle lies in the heart of Umbria. It dominates the suggestive valley of Monte Tezio and it is located only 20 km from Perugia and 15 km from Lago Trasimeno. With its 18000 acres of immaculate woods, valleys, lakes and rivers, it is the perfect place for a relaxing and private holiday providing a degree of comfort and elegance that it is difficult to surpass. This haven of tranquility is the perfect setting for those who seek a holiday retreat from their frenetic lifestyles and an escape to something more spiritual and calm, enjoying the luxuries of time out and privacy, yet backed by a five-star service and by the facilities and commodities of the nearby luxury golf resort, complete with 18 hole golf course, club and restaurant. Four spectacular villas (Villathis property offered here, Villa San Salvo, Torrethis property and Serenata / all featured in our portfolio) have just been restored to offer guests the possibility to explore and live Umbria and fully enjoy the charm of the Umbrian countryside. The important towns in Umbria are Perugia, Spoleto, Todi, Gubbio, Norcia, Assisi and Orvieto, and they are all in daytrip distance.

Activities

Umbria has an enormous variety and number of traditional feasts throughout the year. The local communities treat these events as an opportunity to confirm their roots and identity and it is a wonderful opportunity for tourists to experience genuine expressions of Umbrian culture and folklore. 

To exemplify: Gubbio is known for its palio, the Corsa dei Ceri, a spectacular run held every year on May 15, in which three teams run through throngs of cheering supporters up much of the mountain from the main square in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli to the Basilica of S. Ubaldo, each team carrying a statue of their saint.

Gubbio is so perfect, it looks like a medieval movie set. The main monuments and sightseeings of the city include the Roman Theatre which is still in use for performances, the massive Palazzo dei Consoli, the duomo and the Palazzo Ducale.

In Orvieto, visit the fanciful Gothic Duomo, which soars seven stories high. Inside are magnificently vibrant and graphic frescoes of the Apocalypse by Luca Signorelli. Don't miss the Pozzo di S. Patrizio, a historic well built by architect-engineer Antonio da Sangallo the Younger of Florence, between 1527 and 1537.

In Assisi, you'll want to visit the famous basilica dedicated to Italy's patron saint, Francis. Frescoes by Giotto vividly tell the story of St. Francis's life. In the Piazza del Comune you'll find a church inserted into the remains of the ancient Temple of Minerva. Above town stands the Rocca Maggiore, a fortress that protected citizens during attacks. For a dose of nature and spiritual contemplation, walk to the hermitage, the Eremo dell Carceri.

In Spoleto, visit the Roman theater and the archeological museum for a view of ancient Umbria. Go see the pre-Renaissance frescoes by Fra Lippo Lippi and Pinturicchio. The church of San Salvatore is one of Italy's oldest and is set within the remains of an ancient Roman temple.

In Deruta, stroll the color-splashed streets where Italy's most famous hand-made ceramics are produced.

Visit charming Citta di Castello, which packs a lot into such a small town, with palaces, churches, towers, and -of course- a castle, all sitting pretty and begging to be expl
