This is one of the most exclusive private country estates in Italy owned by the same family for generations. The estate with its castle lies in the heart of Umbria. It dominates the suggestive valley of Monte Tezio and it is located only 20 km from Perugia and 15 km from Lago Trasimeno. With its 18000 acres of immaculate woods, valleys, lakes and rivers, it is the perfect place for a relaxing and private holiday providing a degree of comfort and elegance that it is difficult to surpass. This haven of tranquility is the perfect setting for those who seek a holiday retreat from their frenetic lifestyles and an escape to something more spiritual and calm, enjoying the luxuries of time out and privacy, yet backed by a five-star service and by the facilities and commodities of the nearby luxury golf resort, complete with 18 hole golf course, club and restaurant. Four spectacular villas (Torre nel Verde offered here,Villa nel Verde, Villa San Salvo andSerenata/ all featured in our portfolio) have just been restored to offer guests the possibility to explore and live Umbria and fully enjoy the charm of the Umbrian countryside. The important towns in Umbria are Perugia, Spoleto, Todi, Gubbio, Norcia, Assisi and Orvieto, and they are all in daytrip distance.
Torre nel Verde is an exclusive and luxury villa which has just been rebuilt on the ruins of a medieval tower of this ancient estate. The tower was originally built in a strategic position on the top of a hill overlooking the valley of Monte Tezio and an ancient castle. The tower enjoys a superb position with amazing and stunning views across the immaculate countryside with its secular olive trees and green valleys. This idyllic and rustic scene has changed little since the XII century when it was originally built. This luxury tower is set on the top of a rolling Umbrian hill offering a peaceful atmosphere, breathtaking views and surely one of the most enjoyable retreats in Umbria yet backed by a discreet five-star service and by the facilities and commodities of a five-star luxury resort.
Torre nel Verde can accommodate 6 guests (plus eventually one child) in 3 immaculately decorated rooms with en suite bathrooms all furnished in soft colors with stunning views across the nature reserve. All bedrooms and sitting rooms are blessed with uplifting Umbrian sunlight flooding in trough the windows. The ground floor is divided as following: there is a charming and comfortable living room which leads onto the open space dining room with French windows on the terrace and the garden of the villa. Right behind the dining room there is a well equipped kitchen. The living room can comfortably seat 8 people on the most relaxing and soft sofas.
The extensive private grounds surrounding Torre nel Verde provide privacy, as well as making it ideal for walkers and nature lovers, wishing to explore the surrounding woodland and nature reserve. Guests can swim in the superb infinity pool, drink a glass of wine on the stunning roof terrace, enjoy a romantic candle lighted dinner prepared by our chef on the terraces of the villa and then sleep deeply in over-sized beds among the finest soft cottons.
The 18 holes championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, with golf clubhouse and restaurant facilities in the same estate is located at only 4 minutes from the villa, accessible also with golf cart through a private path across the nature reserve. Guests have discounts on the golf green fees and at the clubhouse restaurant.
The property is in a rural location, on the top of a hill (600 meter above sea level) within a country estate, which is a large Umbrian active agricultural farm. The access road to the property is a long and occasionally steep private white gravel road, not suitable for sports cars or any other low-height car. We would recommend the use of a 4 wheel drive car.
