Casale Fara - Umbria
A serene and breath taking retreat placed on a hillock, with a magnificent view over the valley below, Casale Fara is the ideal solution for a restful and reviving vacation.
The property includes two houses traditionally built with local stones, though complying with the modern desire for airy and luminous spaces.
Extreme attention to decorative details, the use of noble materials, bespoke furniture, combined with antique pieces, make both houses an interesting example of refinement in simplicity – so appropriate for this Franciscan land. The weaver, the cabinetmaker, the blacksmith, the potter, all skilled local artisans, have contributed to this achievement.
Surrounded by woodland, an olive grove of two hundred and fifty trees, a small vineyard, almond, fig and apricot trees among others, Casale Fara provides an enchanting setting for family reunions or friends get-togethers. It offers a 12 m. swimming pool overlooking the valley, barbeque facilities at the pool as well as outside the main house.
A high vaulted fitness area with a mirrored wall allows for the practice of yoga, dance, Pilates… A corner of it is even reserved for table football, a typically Italian entertainment.
The meals can be prepared in both the fully equipped kitchens, or can be ordered and cooked by a local “Mamma” – who can even come to the house and share her secrets. The housekeeper and the gardener will come daily at your convenience.
An English speaking local host welcomes guests upon arrival and will be at their disposal to guide them and accompany them if they wish so.
There are four bedrooms in the main house:
- The peach bedroom with a Queen size bed and its en suite bathroom
- The pale bedroom with twin beds that can be made into a Queen bed. This room shares the bathroom with shower with the pink room.
