In the beauty of Umbrian countryside tucked in the hills two miles outside the walls of medieval Assisi, a totally renovated centuries-old farmhouse stands amid the stunning Umbrian landscape. Fields of wildflowers, olive trees and vineyards sweep in every direction across nearly thirty acres. Four acres of truffle forest surround the home. Only birdsong breaks the tranquil silence.
In 2009, this enchanting place was painstakingly restored as a retreat center, with new flooring; new electrical, plumbing, heating, alarm and broadband systems; radiant heating; and full sprinklers amid the flower-filled garden. It was voted one of the top ten meditation retreats in the world by CNN and Travel and Leisure Magazine. Wall Street Journal lists this property as a go to spot for digital detox and rejuvenation.
Now a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has appeared to own this unparalleled estate … just a twenty-minute, twelve-mile drive from Perugia Airport, yet worlds away. As you walk through the compound, history speaks at every turn — from the 800-year-old olive tree to the garden fountain, an ancient boulder from the quarry that supplied stones for Assisi’s first structure, the 2,500-year-old Minerva Temple. Will you make the entire compound your home to share with family and friends? Use it as a full house and two apartments? Or create your own serene retreat destination or bed and breakfast inn? These visions and more are well within reach.
The 3,825 (approx.) square foot farmhouse can sleep up to sixteen people, with a separate private master quarters including bedroom, office, bathroom, terrace, hot tub, kitchen and laundry. The barn could be converted into a large floored studio. Another outbuilding could be remodeled to add almost 2,700 square feet of housing, including an ideal pool site.
When you want to explore the charms of Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, simply walk or bike two miles to dine, browse the quaint shops, or just enjoy people-watching and a caffè macchiato on the Piazza del Comune. A day trip to Florence or Rome is an easy train ride away, and flights from Perugia Airport can whisk you to Spain, France, England and Germany.
Can you let a dream this magical slip away?
