Nestled high in the luxurious Umbrian hills, overlooking the valley of Assisi and the surrounding hills between the Chiascio and the Tiber rivers sits the isolated, sprawling La Montagnola Estate, surrounded in its 17th century majesty by the dark green and silver of 7000 olive trees.
This is the domain of the Borgia and Medici family--an heirdom as ancient as Italy itself.
Built over the ruins of a 12th century castle that was destroyed in 1298, the estate came back to life in the late 1600s, when the Baglioni count established La Montagnola as a hunting lodge and summer residence. The spectacularly beautiful, frescoed-ceiling palazzo that is the heart of the La Montagnola estate was the result, with architectural features that have remained in the centuries since.
To see how little La Montagnola estate has changed over the centuries, look no further than the painting of the palazzo by Alessio De Marchis, whose fiery works saw him sentenced to years as a galley slave until he was pardoned by Pope Clemente XI, for whom he then painted canvass upon canvass of landscapes. There is the architecture of a building-still expressive of the rococo style and 1700s classicism that it is now one of the most remarkable palazzos in all of the Perugia area. There is the inside courtyard, unusual among the 18th century villas, spread, as it is, over three floors. There is the palazzo's interior, characterized by a long gallery, multiple living rooms and working country kitchen, where cooking classes are held. The agritourism activity takes place instead on three farmhouses, scattered on the hill:
CAPRARECCIA, CASA DELLA CACCIA, IL POGGIO.
Apartments with pool
for rent, Caprareccia
Nestled among gardens and olive trees, both apartments have their own gazebo for outdoor dining and barbecues where you may catch a glimpse of colorful pheasants roaming through the garden as the sun begins to set. A few steps from the house, there is a swimming pool to enjoy those beautiful summer days.
Apartments for rent
and independent rooms, Casa della Caccia
In this structure, also full of history, later restructured, we find three apartments and two independent rooms with bathroom. Each apartment at Casa della Caccia has its own private outdoor area. A little further there is a large private garden with swimming pool.
with pool and garden, Il Poggio
Recently restored, and retaining its ancient masonry, it is composed of two holiday apartments that have been pleasantly covered by ivy plants climbing with relaxing colors. It also has a pool and private garden all around.
