Torgiano Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Nestled high in the luxurious Umbrian hills, overlooking the valley of Assisi and the surrounding hills between the Chiasco and the Tiber rivers sits the isolated, sprawling La Montagnola estate, surrounded in its 17th century majesty by the dark green and silver of 6,000 olive trees.

the family tends to three completely restored farmhouses which guests can rent. There is the hilltop Caprareccia, with its six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, private swimming pool and 360-degree view of Assisi. Halfway down the mountain, there is La Casa della Caccia, with its studio, one and two-bedroomed apartments, swimming pool, and hill views. And next to La Casa della Caccia, sharing its swimming pool, there is Il Poggio, with its one and three-bedroomed apartments and quiet hill country

This is the domain of the Borgia and Medici family—an heirdom as ancient as Italy itself. Built over the ruins of a 12-century castle that was destroyed in 1298, the estate came back to life in the late 1600s, when the Baglioni counts established La Montagnola as a hunting lodge and summer residence.

here is the architecture of a building—still the home of the Borgia and Medici family—so 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.

Why Vittoria Iraci Borgia chose Perugia area

The New York Times calls La Montagnola a “staggeringly beautiful hilltop jewel.” The Washington Post was even more effusive, in a travel piece about the estate: “If this is country living,” the Post reported, “then sign this city boy up.”

Il posto del cuore

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato presso il casale Caprareccia, nella tenuta La Montagnola, lo scorso weekend. Era l'occasione per riunire tutta la famiglia e per trascorrere qualche giorno insieme in relax. E' stato tutto meraviglioso! Il casale è bellissimo, entrambi gli appartamenti sono arredati con stile e sono estremamente accoglienti; gli spazi esterni sono semplicemente fantastici! I bambini (6!) hanno vissuto all'aria aperta tra giardino e piscina in totale libertà e sicurezza. Abbiamo trascorso la nostra vacanza nel migliore dei modi. Vittoria è una padrona di casa squisita e premurosa. Decisamente abbiamo eletto la tenuta come il nostro posto del cuore e vi torneremo non appena possibile, magari per più di un weekend.

Perfetto -- La Montagnola

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at La Montagnola four times now--and we will be back again I am sure! The property is just amazing--beautiful and peaceful, and the perfect place to relax after a day of traveling around the area. So much to see and do, so many wonderful villages nearby.

Vittoria is the most wonderful hostess--she makes you feel like you've come home to paradise. The house is well equipped and has a beautiful setting. We cooked at home most evenings, and had wonderful lunches in Montefalco, Bevagna, Torgiano, Spello. Day trips to Florence, Orvieto, Todi and Siena were great. We enjoyed the cooking class with Vittoria and Carmela, and visiting Antonelli Vineyards and Caprai.

We are so happy we found this little retreat, a perfect setting that we will return to again and again!
