In less than one hour, you can also reach Umbria’s main towns, such as Città di Castello (42 km), Assisi (56 km), and Perugia (57 km). The latter is Umbria’s capital and is famous for its prestigious university. Furthermore, the Adriatic sea (80 km) can be reached in about one hour and 10 minutes.

Description of buildings

This property includes a renovated farmhouse (331 sq.m) and an annex (147 sq.m), which is currently being set up for residential use, for a total of 478 sq.m (net saleable area).


Main farmhouse - 331 sq.m developed over two floors

10 rooms – 3 + 1 bedrooms – 4 bathrooms

The farmhouse develops over two floors. However, since it is connected internally and through independent entrances, it can also be divided into two apartments, even thanks to the presence of two kitchens (one on each floor).

Ground floor: entrance to the airy living room with a fireplace, an eat-in kitchen, a study that can be used as a bedroom, a spacious hallway with a staircase leading to the upper floor, two bathrooms, and a cellar.

First floor: entrance to the eat-in kitchen, a living room/hallway from the lower floor, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms.


Annex/ guest house – 147 sq.m (net saleable area)

7 rooms – 1 bedroom – 2 bathrooms

The annex next to the farmhouse develops over one floor. It has been used as a garage and storage room but is now being converted into a guest house. It includes a living room, a kitchenette, a bedroom and two bathrooms.

The conversion is in progress and may require a few months to complete all the technical and bureaucratic procedures.

Next to the residential part are three rooms used as storage rooms.


The surface area is the same as the walkable surface area (which includes internal walls) plus 10% to take into account supporting walls.

State and finishing

This renovated farmhouse is in excellent condition and immediately habitable.

It features the finishes of a typical Umbrian farmhouse: terracotta floorings, ceilings with beams and tiles, and four fireplaces.

External areas

The farmhouse and the guest house are surrounded by a 2.5-hectare plot of land (including the building grounds) with a well that provides water for irrigation and domestic use.
