I Mori Gelsi - Fattoria Spinola
Located in the very heart to Umbria, I Mori Gelsi/Fattoria Spinola is a classic example of an Italian farmhouse estate, refined, welcoming and very friendly.
Fattoria Spinola was a convent of nuns in the late thirteenth century.
In fact, there is still a private consecrated chapel with frescoes dating back approximately to the beginning of the fourteenth century.
Around 1700, Fattoria Spinola became the country house of the noble family Goga (now extinct). You can still see the emblem on the altar of the Chapel and stone at the entrance to the house.
In 1818, the last Cardinal Spinola family (SPINOLA, Hugh Peter * 1791-1858) was sent to Perugia by the Pope and bought about 3,000 acres of homes, land, villas. He was the Owner’s grandfather's uncle, who after his death left him and his brothers all his possessions. The Owner’s grandfather inherited Fattoria Spinola with 70 acres of land.
I MORI GELSI consists of a main house dated 1900 and lovingly restored, and its annex, which once housed the tractor shed, chicken coop and pigsty, refitted as a delightful detached house.
The main house is divided into two spacious and comfortable apartments of 140 sqm each, ideal for families or friends, which can be rented both together or individually.
I MORI GELSI is set in a large private garden with swimming pool, fruit orchard, flowering plants.
An organic vegetable garden is available for free to guests as well as are fresh organic eggs from the owner's farm.
Each apartment has its own private outdoor space consisting of a large pergola, lighted and furnished with a beautiful hand painted Deruta table and chairs. Guests also can enjoy their own private barbecue.
The area is set in a Conservation Area where hunting is forbidden. In fact very often our guests can encounter colorful pheasants and fast hares that roam freely and undisturbed.
