Property Description

Perched on a hill in the heart of Umbria, this exquisitely restored 1880s farmhouse boasts an extraordinary setting with sweeping views of the stunning, unspoiled landscape of gently rolling hills, picturesque hill towns, lush vineyards, sunflowers, and olive groves. With its “rooms with a view,” large covered portico and sun-drenched panoramic pool, this property offers breathtaking vistas and an oasis of comfort and peace.

The original charm of this 13-room, 450 square-meter farmhouse is evident in its exquisite details: exposed oak beams, terracotta floors, Italian Carrara marble bathroom vanities, handmade bricks, stone work, numerous wood-burning fireplaces, exceptional furnishings and remarkable appointments give the space a sense of refinement and relaxed elegance.  

The gated property spans 13 acres which include 3.5 acres of D.O.C. vineyards, 400 olive trees, a panoramic swimming pool with solarium, and well- maintained gardens and lawns. A unique feature is a restored antique cistern incorporated into an atmospheric passageway that leads to a wine cellar and an attached rustic area with a large wood- burning fireplace. A working winery, a large agricultural storage space and a garage are also part of the property.  

The ground floor consists of a welcoming reception/entrance area, a cozy sitting room with a wood- burning fireplace, a functional kitchen and large dining area, an espresso coffee and wine bar area, a beautiful bathroom, and a bedroom/bathroom with direct access to the vast panoramic portico.

The top floor consists of seven spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Next to the main house, but separate, is a 100 square-meter fully equipped guesthouse with sweeping views, stunning cathedral ceiling, floor heating, AC, a wood-burning fireplace, a large panoramic terrace, and an ample detached garage/storage area.   This beautiful independent house may be excluded from the sale.


This 1880s farmhouse was meticulously and lovingly restored by its current family owners. After a comprehensive, several-year restoration, it opened in 2007 as an award-winning Country Inn (B&B) that has earned an impressive reputation (5-star Tripadvisor rating), welcoming international guests.

Property Use

The use of the property is extremely versatile. It can easily continue to operate as an active and well-known Inn with its affiliated agricultural activities (vineyard/wine making, olive grove/extra virgin olive oil producing). Thanks to its beauty, comforts and strategic position in the heart of Umbria (and near Tuscany and Lazio), it would also be ideal as a main residence, a holiday home and a place to invite extended family, friends, colleagues.  It would also lend itself as a place for company/corporate bonus trips.


The property has fully functional services and utilities, including cell service, wifi coverage, heating, and air conditioning, solar panels, lawn sprinklers and a pool house and outdoor pool shower.


The property was painstakingly restored in 2007 and is in excellent/perfect condition and immediately habitable. Possibility of negotiating the purchase of furnishings, including antiques. 


The property is situated on a hill in the heart of Umbria. It is within an easy drive of many of the region’s gems, including Bevagna, Montefalco, Spoleto, Spello, Assisi, Todi, Orvieto, Deruta, and Trasimeno Lake. Perugia – the capital of Umbria, with its international airport – is 30 minutes away.

Nearby rail stations offer direct train service to Rome (80 minutes) and Florence (2 hours) and beyond. The Tuscan towns of Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, and Siena are 70-90 minutes away.
