Property 1557152208 – Spedalicchio - Umbria
13 Bedrooms – Pool – Tennis Court
Location and Surrounding Area. Immersed in the peaceful Umbrian countryside characterized by rolling hills and green plains, this magnificent thirteen-bedroom hamlet is ideally located to offer complete privacy to its guests and to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. Boasting a truly privileged position on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, at an altitude of 400 meters above the sea level, Property 1557152208 represents the ultimate location for day trips to the most beautiful towns in Umbria and provides a unique opportunity to admire its iconic landscape while soaking up the region’s incredibly rich historical and cultural heritage.
Property 1557152208 is a few kilometres from Gubbio, a charming town built into the steep slopes of Mount Ingino, known for its rich history and culture. Approaching the town, the ruins of a Roman theatre built during the 1st century greet visitors while a walk through its steep, winding streets leads to the breathtaking Piazza Grande, the town’s starkly beautiful central square that also houses the imposing 14th-century Palazzo dei Consoli. Get a taste of Gubbio’s cultural heritage at La Festa dei Ceri, one of the oldest folklore festivals in Italy.
The property is just a stone’s throw away from Perugia, Umbria’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Its historic centre rises in a helter-skelter of cobbled alleys, arched stairways and piazzas framed by solemn churches and magnificent palazzi. Reminders of its lively past are everywhere, from ancient arches and medieval basilicas to Renaissance frescoes by the likes of Perugino and Raphael. But while history reverberates all around, Perugia knows how to party: university students pep up the nightlife and fill café terraces, while music-lovers swarm to the city in July for Umbria Jazz, one of Europe’s top jazz festivals.
In less than one hour by car, you can easily reach Assisi, best known as the birthplace of Saint Francis of Assisi. With the plains spreading picturesquely below and Monte Subasio rearing steep and wooded above, the mere sight of Assisi in the rosy glow of dusk is enough to send pilgrims’ souls spiraling to heaven. It is at this hour, when the town is shrouded in saintly silence, that the true spirit of Saint Francis can be felt most keenly. However, you don’t have to be religious to be struck by Assisi’s beauty and enjoy its pristine historic centre and Unesco-listed Basilica, home to one of Italy’s most celebrated artistic masterpieces.
In less than one hour by car, you can also reach the picturesque walled town of Spello, where winding medieval streets and age-old churches charm history buffs and architecture fans alike. Founded by the ancient Umbri, Spello was later colonized by Romans, whose legacy can still be seen in sights like Porta Venere, a splendidly preserved Augustan-era town gate. The property is also a one-hour drive from Todi: perched on a hilltop high above the winding River Tiber, the pretty town of Todi is like something straight out a fairytale. Largely untouched by tourism, Todi offers a real slice of peaceful Umbrian life: while you are there, make sure to try local culinary delicacies like slow-cooked pigeon flavored with herbs, and Grechetto di Todi, a dry white wine made in the area.
