Geographic position

Antica Badia is just 3 km from Bettona’s historical centre. It’s located on a flat position on the edge of a small town (a reference point for daily errands), surrounded by a 1-ha private park, which ensures privacy.

Assisi (11 km), Bevagna (13 km), and Spello (19 km) can be reached in less than 15 minutes, whereas Perugia (18 km) is a 20-minute drive.

The motorway is just 6 km away and connects the area to Rome (160 km) and Florence (168 km) in less than 2 hours.


The closest international school is in Perugia. The International Montessori Centre is a private school for all ages, from nursery to high school students. It offers a complete curriculum and the teachers are native speakers who work with their students 5 hours a day.  


Golf lovers can play at three important nearby golf clubs:

Perugia Golf Club (28 km away). A gently undulated 18-hole, par 72, 5,735-metre course, the core of which dates back to the late 1950s and with a clubhouse carved out of an old lime kiln from 1921. It still has the imperious towers, guarding the course that is reminiscent of English golf courses.

Antognolla Golf Club (44 km away). Considered one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in Italy, 18 holes, par 71, 6,112 metres. The Antognolla course is known for its long, sloping fairways, beautiful water obstacles and wide, wavy greens. In 2020, Antognolla was recognised by the prestigious World Golf Awards as ‘Italy’s Best Golf Course’, and was nominated in 2021 and 2022 as well.

Lamborghini Golf Club (45 km away). This is a 9-hole, par 36 and 2957 metre golf course. It’s situated between Panicale and Lake Trasimeno on a 30 hectare plot of land, surrounded by wonderful woods and vineyards.


The nearest airport is Perugia (12 km), a 15-minute drive. Ancona (120 km) can be reached in one hour and 20 minutes by car, whereas Florence (180 km), Rome Ciampino (177 km) and Rome Fiumicino (195) can be reached in about 2 hours.

Description of buildings

Antica Badia is a historical residence built on an old Benedictine monastery whose earliest documentary evidence dates back to 1014.

The monastic church's classical structure – the single aisle, the raised presbytery, the apses, and the convent on the right-hand side of the aisle – is still visible today.

The crypt is under the apses (which seems to be one of the oldest in Umbria).

All the buildings, including those built in the subsequent centuries, develop around a courtyard featuring a well in the centre.


This residence has a net saleable area of 1,192 sq.m. over two floors besides the terraces and includes the following:

Main apartment - 442 sq.m. + a 19 sq.m terrace

14 rooms- 5 bedrooms- 4 bathrooms

Ground floor: 2 sitting rooms, a kitchen, and a large formal living room

First floor: an airy living room, a kitchen, a study, a bedroom with a sitting area and a fireplace, 2 bedrooms – one with a mezzanine, and both having access to the 19 sq.m terrace – and 2 bathrooms.


Guest house - 233 sq.m. + a 120 sq.m terrace

5 rooms- 3 bedrooms- 2 bathrooms

Ground floor: an entrance, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a laundry room and a pantry.

First floor: First floor: 3 bedrooms (one with access to the 120 sq.m terrace) and a bathroom.


Workshop and common areas - 365 sq.m. + two terraces of 26 sq.m and 30 sq.m, respectively

8 rooms- 1 bedroom- 6 bathrooms

A large area, which includes the church, the apses, and the crypt, can be used as a workshop or a venue for exhibitions, events, and receptions.

Ground floor: hall (in the crypt), storage rooms, hallway and 4 bathrooms.

First floor: 30 sq.m terrace connected to the garden, from which you can access the hall (in the aisle of the old church), a large double hallway, a hall (in the former convent’s area) with a staircase that leads to a 26 sq.m terrace and a bathroom. Small apartment including a living room, a bedroom with a mezzanine, and a bathroom.


Garage - 47 sq.m.


Storage rooms and accessory rooms - 105 sq.m

These 5 rooms of 47, 30, 12, 10 and 6 sq.m on the ground floor can be accessed from the courtyard.


The area is calculated on the basis of the net floor area including interior partitions and increased by 10% for load-bearing walls. 

The terraces areas are calculated separately and should be added to the total area.

State and finishing

The villa is well presented. Over the years, it has been renovated, maintaining its original characteristics. Typical Umbrian materials, like stone, terracotta tiles, and wooden beams, are combined with steel beams, exposed reinforced concrete structural elements, wooden flooring, and modern fireplaces for a balanced and pleasant result.

External areas

Despite being located on the edge of a small town, Antica Badia is surrounded by a 1-ha plot of land, ensuring privacy, thanks to the presence of trees and lush hedges.

Building a swimming pool is an option (you need to ask for the required authorisations, though).

Use and potential uses

Antica Badia is a charming property where the historical part coexists harmoniously with the renovated area. Moreover, its strategic position and the presence of a main apartment, a guest house, and airy multipurpose areas make it extremely flexible. It can be used as a main residence for those who need large spaces or love to organise events and receptions, or a residence where to spend long holidays. It can even be rented on a weekly basis through the international circuit of weekly rentals when not used.
