Brief description

Small hamlet in a panoramic position consisting of the main farmhouse with 4 independent apartments, an annexe, an old building with tower and two annexes, with a total commercial surface area of approx. 644 sq.m. Private land of 31 hectares with swimming pool and olive grove.



Geographic position

Situated in a panoramic and elevated position, Borgo Le Selvette sits on a green hill overlooking the Nestore Valley, nestled among woods, olive groves and picturesque medieval villages, between Perugia and Marsciano.

The property, although full of privacy, is easily accessible thanks to a well-maintained unpaved road that starts from the provincial road, climbs up the side of the hill to reach the village and, continuing, rejoins the provincial road that runs further down.


Less than a kilometre away is the Borgo di Montelagello, a charming medieval castle that stands along the ancient Via Orvietana.
The hamlet of Compignano, the nearest village, is about 5 km away, and there is a grocery shop for basic purchases.
Marsciano, 13 km away, hosts a wide variety of services, including banks, pharmacies, shopping centres, places of worship, bars, restaurants and the post office.

Perugia is about 25 km away and can be easily reached in half an hour by car. The city is a renowned university centre and is also home to a peer international school (the International Montessori Centre, with a school curriculum ranging from kindergarten to high school).
Lake Trasimeno, 30 km away, can be reached in just half an hour and Todi, 34 km away, in just 40 minutes by car.


The location is also convenient and barycentric with respect to several other important historical centres in Umbria (such as Castiglione del Lago - 44 km, Orvieto - 50 km, Assisi - 53 km and Montepulciano - 63 km) and to Tuscany.


Perugia airport is 38 km away and can be reached in about 45 minutes by car.
The hamlet's location is also strategically convenient with respect to the airports of Rome Ciampino (175 km), Rome Fiumicino (190 km) and Florence (178 km), all of which can be reached in just over two hours by car.


For golf enthusiasts, the Perugia Golf Club, with an 18-hole, par 72, 5,735-metre course, is only 24 km away. The gently undulating course dates back to the late 1950s, and its clubhouse was carved out of an old lime kiln dating back to 1921, with imperious towers towering over the course, evoking English golf courses.

State and finishing

Although the external stone walls and roofs are in good condition, all the buildings are in need of renovation, which will allow for a better internal distribution of the spaces, while maintaining their architectural characteristics.

Inside, we find several typical elements, including some stone floors and jambs, wooden steps and floors, and fireplaces, which deserve to be preserved during renovation.

External areas

The land included in the offer for sale has a total area of approximately 31 hectares, of which more than 2 hectares with olive groves.
The old building with tower, on the other hand, is completely embraced by woodland and can be reached (in addition to the farmhouse) from the road, via a typical tree-lined avenue.
Within the property there are two wells, one of which has a good flow of water.

Use and potential uses

Thanks to its location and size, this small hamlet is perfect both as a second holiday home, with the possibility of hosting family or friends while maintaining everyone's independence and privacy, and as a small tourist activity.
Its position, panoramic and central to many historic centres in Umbria and Tuscany, makes it perfect as a starting point for day trips to discover central Italy.
