The former vicarage and private chapel in one of the most beautiful private nature reserves in Italy
This is one of the most exclusive private country estates in Italy owned by the same family for generations. The estate with its castle lies in the heart of Umbria. It dominates the suggestive valley of Monte Tezio and it is located only 20 km from Perugia and 15 km from Lago Trasimeno. With its 18000 acres of immaculate woods, valleys, lakes and rivers, it is the perfect place for a relaxing and private holiday providing a degree of comfort and elegance that it is difficult to surpass. This haven of tranquility is the perfect setting for those who seek a holiday retreat from their frenetic lifestyles and an escape to something more spiritual and calm, enjoying the luxuries of time out and privacy, yet backed by a five-star service and by the facilities and commodities of the nearby luxury golf resort, complete with 18 hole golf course, club and restaurant. Four spectacular villas (Villa San Salvo offered here,
Villa nel Verde
Torre nel Verde
/ all featured in our portfolio) have just been restored to offer guests the possibility to explore and live Umbria and fully enjoy the charm of the Umbrian countryside. The important towns in Umbria are Perugia, Spoleto, Todi, Gubbio, Norcia, Assisi and Orvieto, and they are all in daytrip distance.
Villa San Salvo is set on top of a hill, affording beautiful views across the forests as well as across a beautifully championship designed 18 holes golf course. The villa is a XIV century farmhouse and chapel set in the heart of an immaculate nature reserve, affording beautiful views across endless woods, olive trees and green valleys. This used to be the church of the estate, until the 70ies the farmers living on the estate would meet here for Sunday mass, which was followed by a market.
The house was completely restored in 2004. With immaculate furnishings in warm, rich colors, comfortable furniture, and en suite bedrooms, the villa has all the comforts of a modern home with the services of a 5 star resort. The villa sleeps up to 8 people and has 2 king bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms. The ground floor has a spacious, open-plan living and dining room with working fireplace. The dining table seats up to 8. The sunny kitchen with breakfast table has French windows leading to gardens and outside dining area. A corridor leads to the converted chapel which contains a further magnificent sitting room with TV and other facilities and a king double bedroom with en suite shower room. All the bedrooms have their own individual color schemes and are of a good size with excellent facilities and magnificent views. The surrounding garden is fenced and has private pool, framing the magnificent views of the green valley.
The 18 holes championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, with golf clubhouse and restaurant facilities in the same estate is located at only 4 minutes from the villa, accessible also with golf cart through a private path across the nature reserve. Guests staying have discounts on the golf green fees and at the clubhouse restaurant.
The property is in a rural location, on the top of a hill (600 meter above sea level) within a country estate, which is a large Umbrian active agricultural farm. The access road to the property is a long and occasionally steep private white gravel road, not suitable for sports cars or any other low-height car. We would recommend the use of a 4 wheel drive car.
