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.
Ideal as a private residence, this beautifully-restored 450 square-meter structure can be sold separately. If not intending to operate as a licensed Country Inn), the Property has the possibility of selling the vineyards and winery separately.

A working winery and agricultural storage space is also part of the property.

The top floor consists of seven spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.

This beautiful independent house can be sold separately or used for a custodian or as a rental.

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).
