Overview

About the property

Montegiove is a lovely and peaceful medieval country village, close to the main communication lines and equidistant of Rome (154 km) and Florence (151 km), an ideal base for exploring the historical treasures of Umbria and Tuscany, such as Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto, Perugia and Siena.

The apartment is equipped with satellite television, high speed Internet connection, independent heating, laundry facilities and drying rack. The house is furnished in the traditional style of a central Italian manor house with a tasteful combination of antique and modern furniture.

The rental includes heating, weekly change of sheets and towels, normal final cleaning and taxes.

The castle of Montegiove has existed since the early 12th century and has in the last four centuries been the property of the Marchesi Misciattelli.

Today, still family-owned, it is the centre of an estate covering nearly 3000 acres of beautiful Umbrian countryside, where oak forests, vineyards, olive fields and arable land blend in total harmony with ancient dry walls and farmhouses built of local stone.

The principal products of the estate are wine, olive oil, cereals, oil seeds, Chianina beef cattle, forage and forest products. There is abundant wildlife such as boar and deer, and the local flora including truffles and mushrooms.

During your stay in Montegiove you will get the opportunity to be the Misciattelli family's private guest and get a guided tour in the winecellar, at the castle and the surrounding estate.

About Lorenzo Misciattelli

In 2002 we moved from Copenhagen in Denmark, were we both grew up, to Montegiove to take over the daily management of the family estate “Castello di Montegiove”. We have never regretted this decision, even though the first years in Montegiove were not at all like a fairytale. The castle had to be completely restored; the roofs all had big holes so we spent all rainy days running around with pots and pans to pick up the water. Today the castle has been through a thorough and respectful renovation. Lorenzo: I spent almost all my childhood summers together with my grandfather in Montegiove, following daily life at the estate and in the wine cellar. I still recall adventuring round in the castle and walks in the splendid and unspoiled nature around Montegiove. I always hoped, that one day, I could take care of the estate, and that happened after years of study at the “Royal Veterinarian and Agricultural University” and the “University of Aberdeen” ending up with a Ph.D. and a short carrier as scientist and assistant professor, before moving to Italy. Rikke: I worked with pattern making and designs in the fashion industry before moving to Italy. My big passion is decorating and putting things in order so moving to a place like this where everything needed a loving hand has been a fantastic challenge for me. Today I am the practical person in the household making all ends meet for our busy modern family. We still feel so lucky waking up in the morning and looking out at the beautiful valley, and we are never getting tired of the absolute silence and peace that is so rare to find in the modern world of today. Sometimes the clouds are hanging lower than Montegiove and it feels like we are on an island in the middle of the sea.

Magic setting

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable apartment is newly renovated and has everything one could hope for. Classy, understated Danish influenced decor. Good bed! The hosts are wonderful, warm, bright people and we were given a gracious tour of the castle, its fascinating history, and a superb bottle of its wine. Be sure to stop when getting off the highway to shop for any food you need in Fabro COOP.flat has good coffee, milk and juice, a nice and thoughtful gift. Good small market in Montegabbione as well. Don't miss dinner at gatto giallo restaurant/agriturismo in Montegabbione. In summary: this is a fabulous VRBO and we would return there in a heartbeat and stay longer.

The castle of Montegiove has existed since the early 12th century and has for the last four centuries been the property of the Marchesi Misciattelli. Today, still family-owned, it is the centre of an estate covering nearly 1200 hectares of beautiful Umbrian countryside, where oak forests, vineyards, olive fields and arable land blend in total harmony with ancient dry walls and farmhouses built of local stone. The principal products of the estate are wine, olive oil, cereals, beef cattle, oil seeds, forage and forest products. There is abundant wildlife such as wildboar and deer, and the local flora include truffles and mushrooms. At the surrounding land you will find marked trekking footpaths of various lengths. The beautiful surroundings and unspoiled environment make it hard to believe that Montegiove is only 17 km from Italy’s main motorway A1 (Milan – Naples), which also connects Rome and Florence.

Other Activities: Shopping, Wildlife Viewing, Wine production, Wine tasting

Golf: The nine holes course of the Golf Club Lamborghini, which was designd by Eng. Ferruccio Lamborghini, stretches over a beautiful, hilly landscape close to Lake Trasimeno and is placed inside the same property that includes also an agriturismo for vacationers.

The golf course was originally constructed in a meandering fashion to intentionally cover a widely spread area of land. Recent changes in its design make the course much more challeging to today’s golfers, inviting experts alike to its greens. Source: www.lamborghinionline.it
