About the property

Il Palazzetto

The sweet peace of unspoiled woods and meadows.

Leaving the main road SS219 you proceed in a bucolic landscape in the green oak and ash and yellow broom and reach an ancient farmhouse of the eighteenth century, ’’Il Palazzetto’’.

Along the white road it's not unusual to find, especially at night, deers, pheasants, porcupines , badgers, hares, and squirrels hopping.

The farm ,an oasis of peace and tranquility which stretches for 36 hectares of lush lawns and winding wooded areas, welcomes its guests in a country house in which, after a complete renovation that has left its original features, five comfortable apartments were made, ideal for people who want to unwind in the countryside, far away from noise. The largest is a four-room apartment of 107 square meters, which includes, in addition to 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen, a spacious living room decorated with a period fireplace. The trilocal, suitable for 4 people, also has a living area with fireplace and a cosy dining room with adjoining kitchen, and it offers a panoramic view overlooking the entrance to the ground floor. Two apartments and a studio, all with private balcony and kitchenette, complete the accommodation offer of ’’ The palace’’. All system combines the rustic style of the house, especially nice in the rock face to view, with the convenience of a comfortable and functional furniture. Outside the house, on the north side, beautiful landscapes are wide open, with the Chiascio river valley overlooking the Park of Monte Cucco, which calls for excursions through one of the most prestigious and spectacular mountains of the Umbria-Marche Apennines, for people who want to experience the rhythms of human nature that surrounds it.

Who prefer to stay at home can relax in the outdoor swimming pool, while children have access to a playground.

About Alfredo Brofferio

After working 35 years with IBM and having wandered around Italy and Europe with my family (8 moves) I decided to retire and to live in Gubbio where my mother’s family had been since 1200. Umbria and Gubbio have always been a point of reference in my life as an emigrant. So as soon as I could I returned here permanently.

Before I retired I had already begun to work on a farm house, so as to convert it in an Agriturismo. This project was supposed to help me to overcome the classic syndrome of the pensioned person.

Now this activity absorbs a good deal of my time and energy, though for me it is mainly a hobby and not a duty, and therefore it is my pleasure to treat my guests as visitors who wish to understand and discover my land, rather than as tourists running around just limiting themselves to enjoy superficially the beauties of Umbria.

Alfredo Brofferio purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Alfredo Brofferio chose Gubbio

Owning already 50% of 'IL PALAZZETTO' I decided to buy the other 50% from my sister to maintain such valuable palace in the family and because Gubbio is one of the best place to live for a tourist and a retired person.

What makes this apartment unique

Gubbio is considered one of the most fascinating places in the world due to its enviromental beauty, historical and artistic medieval attractions and gastronomic specialities.
