· a 6,200 square meter park area.
Energy class: E.
State and finishing
The property’s exterior aspect maintains all of the original features of the era in which it was built.
The main building is impressive and the park, with its high surrounding wall, makes going for a stroll feel like a voyage through time back to the late eighteenth century, when the prestigious noble Florentine family of count Morelli de 'Pazzi decided to take up residence here.
The first and second floors of the Villa, which house the bedrooms for guest accommodations, have been recently restored and are in absolutely perfect conditions. The ground floor, upon which the dining rooms and kitchen can be found, is in good general condition, but could use some routine maintenance work.
Even the chapel has been entirely restored, while the outbuildings, currently used as stores, can be recovered in order to increase the available spaces for accommodations.
Within the high surrounding walls, the Morelli de' Pazzi family created a park and a garden landscape which is reminiscent of the ancient villas of Florence and Lucca.
It contains splendid cedars of Lebanon, as well as pines, firs and oaks. The eyes are constantly stimulated by the primrose pathways leading from the entrance gate towards the residence, through the beautiful park decorated with vases, hidden sculptures, terraced gardens and a magnificent sundial. The park houses an impressive "sacred grove", in which a nymphaeum with antique decorative stones and capitals from ancient columns can be admired.
Use and potential uses
Considering the constant development of tourism in the area, as well as the Villa’s proximity to Spoleto (one of Umbria’s foremost historical centres) and its central position with respect to other famous historical Umbrian towns (Assisi, Todi, Perugia, etc.), Villa Morelli can certainly continue to operate in its current manner as an accommodation structure.
The position in which it is located is extremely convenient and easy to reach, making it a perfect venue for events, festivals or ceremonies (the presence of the private chapel even allows for the celebration of marriages or other religious ceremonies).
Another possibility is that of using the Villa as a private residence.
It is also important to highlight that the Villa offers enticing fiscal advantages, both in relation to taxation at the time of purchase as well as in relation to taxation on any income deriving from leases/rentals, if used for tourist accommodations.
