Description

Nestled on the hills near Assisi, 30 km from Perugia, this castle, restored by a worldly Dutch couple with a contemporary twist, boasts a sprawling 10-hectare garden with a contemporary twist on traditional architecture: from the ancient stone walls that whisper tales of centuries past to the sleek lines of its innovative additions, every corner is a captivating juxtaposition.

The castle is located in the rolling hills around Assisi, a historic town of great history and artistic significance since the Middle Ages. It is associated with St. Francis’s patron of animals and the environment, and the town centre has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its well-preserved medieval architecture and religious significance. Assisi boasts charming narrow streets and medieval buildings in locally sourced stones. It offers a taste of traditional Umbrian cuisine with typical restaurants and bars and is home to various art galleries and museums.
Conveniently located in a well-connected portion of Umbria, the villa is a 15-minute drive from Assisi train station, which offers a connection to Florence or Rome in roughly 3.5 hours. The small Assisi airport is only 15 minutes drive away and is connected with London Heathrow and Stansted.

The primary building, spanning three floors in an L-shape, includes a studio and a bedroom on the ground floor. The upper floor boasts a spacious room with an elegant dining area and chandeliers, along with an African-themed TV room and another bedroom. Additional bedrooms can be found on the top floor.

The structure has been renovated over the years, starting in 2020. What was once an abandoned castle is now a villa housed within ancient, thick walls of original rock from the medieval period. Cotto floors and original stone walls are the primary materials, with some additions of marble, modern ceramics and wood floors in the bedrooms
