This antique rural estate covers an area of 2,5ha, dedicated to organic farming, with 60 olive trees, several varieties of trees and fruit trees and oaks. The buildings cover an area of about 450sqm, and consist of:
a) 2 private apartments: the first one includes an external loggia with typical oven with half-moon shaped wall, a terraced loggia perfect to enjoy meals, a large living room with fireplace, spacious kitchen with island and dining area, pantry/laundry room, 2/3 bedrooms/study, complete bathroom and half bathroom; the second apartment is composed of living room with kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom; at ground floor we find storage and technical rooms with laundry and a bathroom with shower;
b) 3 apartments for touristic use at ground floor: the first one, of 50sqm, boasts views of the garden and the valley towards west and south; the second apartment, of 45sqm, is set in the oldest part of the building and boasts views of the garden towards east and the marvellous sunsets towards west; the third unit is a guesthouse of 60sqm (40sqm net), with views of the valley towards south and beautiful glimpses of the swimming pool.
The three apartments have a spacious double bedroom with private bathroom, living room with double sofa-bed, kitchenette and dining area. All the apartments have private access with outdoor dining area.
Green meadows, well maintained gardens, century-old trees, small walls and flowerbeds. There is also a swimming pool of 6x14m (1,25m high) with Roman staircase.
The property is set in a secluded position, accessible through 4km of dirt road, close to the “Riserva Mondiale della Biosfera del Monte Peglia”, the archaeological naturalistic site of the “Tane del Diavolo” with its thermal springs (where some Palaeolithic find have been discovered), and the site of the “Scarzuola”, well-known antique Monastir founded by San Francesco and then turned into “Theatre-town” by the architect Tomaso Buzzi during the '50s.

The owners currently use the property as both private residence and touristic facility, all immersed in nature. The three apartments are rented out with very good income, but they could also be united with the other two and turned into a large single private home.
Thanks to the strategical and well-connected position, it would be a perfect point of start to visit the most important centres in Umbria and Tuscany. Possibility to start a small organic farm with production of olive oil and jams and breeding farm, including the historical red rooster.

Great Estate Group, through the owner’s specialist, draws up a due diligence on each property, which allows to perfectly know the urbanistic and cadastral situation of every property. The due diligence can be required in case of real interest in the property.

The property is owned by private individuals and the purchase will be taxed according to the current laws.


The property is provided with the necessary utilities: Enel cabin for electricity and telephone; water supply granted by two wells with abundant spring water (a private 120m-deep one and an external residents one), with 2 tanks (1.000l each), an 800-liter autoclave, a depuration system, softener with salt and ultraviolet treatment; heating system with LPG fuelled underground tank and autonomous boiler, closed fireplace connected to the boiler and solar/thermal plant to be completed in order to improve the energy saving and to have an almost total energy autonomy; 8,1kw photovoltaic panels with on-site unloading and surplus energy sale to the provider; traditional wood burning fireplaces.


The buildings are ready to move in, thanks to interventions that have characterised a typical rural renovation, partly vintage style and partly contemporary, with the preservation of the local materials and the addition of convenient modern features. Eventual improvement works and adjustments could enhance the beauty of the property. There was a study project (to be verified) for a panoramic terrace with portico below and the possibility to restore an annex and some gazeboes currently used as woodshed.


This property is set in Umbria, in the municipality of Parrano, at the border with Tuscany, in a hilly position among woods and green meadows. It is located in a spot easy to reach from the A1 motorway exit of Fabro, with a last stretch of dirt road (about 4km) that goes among the hills and is currently under maintenance. From Parrano, it is possible to easily reach all the major characteristic hamlets in Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio. The A1 motorway exit and the railway station of Fabro are 15km away. Two international airports are reachable in 50minutes and about 2hours.
