Sleeping from 2 – 6


Simple, lovely, serene. Two kilometres down a strada bianca in a woodland setting not far from Perugia a slender watchtower soars over a clutch of 13th-century limestone buildings, including a deconsecrated church, now a grand and lofty living space with refectory dining where the alter stood and fine frescoes have been restored by one of the family. You may stay in either their two-storey main house – its smallest bedroom and bathroom connected by a glass walkway at ground level, or the cosy single storey Cassetta. Both have a restful, understated elegance: handsome old reclaimed wooden doors, polished terracotta floors, chestnut beamed ceilings and soft ochre walls framing carefully chosen antiques. It’s 45 minutes’ drive to Arezzo where the biggest antique market in Europe is held monthly. Add open fires, deep, comfortable sofas and beds – with garden and tower views – good bathrooms, practical, rustic kitchens; leafy walks from the door, five acres of grounds and a pool that sits in a haze of lavender to the lazy hum of bees in the lime trees… and you may never want to leave. And who wouldn’t want to marry here?

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Francesca

  • Every year Umbria Jazz bursts into the piazza's near us for 10 days in July. Since 1973 the festival has hosted legends like Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan & Chet Baker. Whilst mostly a jazz fest, there are also other genres like World Music & Cuban Salsa
  • Market Day in Umbertide every Wednesday. Don't miss the Porchetta Van! The most delicious roast pork paninis ever
  • L'Infiorata di Spello starts 18th June 2017, for a week. A breathtaking religious festival celebrated in flowers. The whole town comes together to create bold & intricate images made entirely of petals, which carpet the winding streets of Spello.
  • 30 minutes away is Lake Trasimeno. For an idyllic summer picnic, take the 10 minute ferry ride from San Feliciano to Isola Polvese. Don't forget a towel & swimming trunks. For sailing & kayaking at Monte del Lago contact AcquaDolce tel 0345 0467 983
  • There is magnificent mountain & hill walking in every direction from St Giuliana. June is best for the wild flowers & birdsong. Monte Corona behind us, Monte Tezio, Monte Acuto, Subasio & Monte Cucco to name but a few to be exploring.
  • Umbria is renowned for it's picturesque medieval towns. Gubbio, Assisi, Montone, Spello, Montefalco, Città di Castello & Perugia, all in the range of a 45 minute drive. They are all steeped in history, art and open air food festivals throughout the year.
