Description from the owner
Chiesa del Carmine is the ancient church at the heart of the Carmine Estate, located in the heart of Umbria, only 20 minutes north of the cosmopolitan city of Perugia and close to the borders of Tuscany.
Carmine estate is privately owned and has been lovingly restored over the last 5 years by the present owners. What was once an abandoned valley is now a thriving farm including an ancient olive grove, 3 hectares of red and white grapes, a truffle wood and pasture, producing a variety of organic produce.
It is located at the foot of Monte Tezio in a protected valley, where the wildlife is abundant and nature is thriving. The views...Read more

Additional Location Information
The Carmine estate is located in a spectacular position in northern Umbria.
The valley itself is outstanding in natural beauty, with the mountain of Monte Tezio rising high above it. Forests and olive groves adorn the slopes down to the valley with its stream, well managed farmland and vineyards.
The valley is dotted with ancient stone properties, all carefully restored, which add to the beauty of the area. It is abundant with local wild life including deer, wild boar and our favourite Hoopoe bird.
It is very well located to use the amenities of the local area, and after only 1 km of well maintained gravel road you reach the small village of La Bruna. The village of Pierantonio is a 10 minute drive and the larger market town of Umbertide a 15 minute drive, so all the requirements of local shops, restaurants, banks etc are easy and quick to reach.
The main road of the E45 is only a 10 minute drive, which ensures that it is easy to reach after travelling. It also allows you to visit the many attractions of the nearby area, and places a little further in neighbouring Tuscany, Le Marche and southern Umbria.
The historical university city of Perugia is only 20 minutes drive, which provides all the larger services such as rail and bus connections, and newly developed Perugia airport, as well as enjoying the famous festivals such as Umbria Jazz.
Only 2 kms from the property is Antognolla Golf Estate, which boasts a challenging Robert Trent Jones Championship golf course and a wonderful restaurant.
Lake Trasimeno is a short half hour drive. There you can enjoy a large variety of watersports, take a ferry across to one of the islands, visit many of the towns that surround the lake and sample the good restaurants that serve fresh lake fish.
Visitors can enjoy the highlights of the area, including Assisi and Gubbio, and can also experience the true Umbria. It is very much a thriving local area, with a vibrant weekly market in Umbertide. Wild boar hunts take place in the valley weekly in the season and many local festas are held throughout the year where visitors to the area are very much welcomed.
A visit to Chiesa del Carmine will give our guests a genuine flavour of Italy.

What Past Guests Are Saying
11th century church restored to offer modern, boutique hotel, lu
If you are torn between staying in a historical/period property but want the comfort and luxury (not to mention contemporary design) of a boutique hotel, this is the place for you. The property is split across 2 buildings:
The 11th century church provides a breathtaking living, kitchen and dining space (including grand piano and in home cinema). The kitchen is fully equipped for the most passionate chefs (we actually arranged caterers to cook for us as well one night) including american-style fridge freezer, dishwasher, range cooker etc.
The farmhouse provides two story sleeping arrangements (the majority of the rooms have en suite luxury walk-in marble showers) and one of the rooms has a spectacular freestanding bath with views across the garden and countryside - its deep so allow 20-30 mins to draw a bath but god its worth it. There's also a living space and kitchenette in addition to the main 'entertaining space'.
The buildings are split by 2-3 meters but despite our original reservations the set up actually really worked for us, particularly as a couple of our party stay up and rise later than the others so nobody was disturbed by different sleeping habits.
We're already talking about booking again for a birthday treat and I've recommended to a friend for their wedding as it would be perfect. Chrissie looks after the place - we were the first people to stay there and she lives literally 2 minutes away and couldn't have been more helpful.
Amazing place - didn't want to leave.

Something special - Peace and comfort in a beautifully restored
I stayed here this Spring,with family, including children (9 -11 years old). We loved the mixture of history and luxurious comfort. Great for long walks in the countryside and visits to the medieval towns nearby. Ideal for groups of friends or families who want to rest, eat and spend quality time together.
