The Nese and adjacent Nicone Valleys are arguably the most prestigious in Umbria, with the latter bordering both regions of Umbria and Tuscany. 

The area is home to  many important fortresses and castles that in medieval times were built and positioned strategically in order to communicate with  each other for defensive purposes.

This private property of 5 hectares sits within  a much larger private estate, on a promontory with commanding views.  The buildings were sympathetically and authentically  reconstructed using original materials from a pre-existing 13th century sanctuary associated with the then local church of San Bartolomeo Die Fossi.

There are three main buildings comprising: a main house with three large bedrooms, a pool house with two bedrooms and a luxury “hut” which has a fully appointed kitchen, living room and alfresco dining overlooking  the whole estate, our own pond and a substantial 20m x 5m infinity pool designed  for serious training or for leisure.  All five bedrooms are ensuite.  The entire complex  is built in a “U” shape around the attractive  pool. 

There are a large number of loungers, chairs and private spaces for relaxation, often used also for morning Yoga or exercise.

The overall construction is typically Umbrian on the outside and is complimented by a contemporary and fully modernised internal layout using only the highest quality materials and furnishings.

The views across the valley are one thing, but the views upwards are equally inspiring as the lowest levels of light, noise and air pollution allow guests to study and appreciate the night sky in total tranquility.  The “hut” is a special place to relax, within 5 metres of the pool, as are the pool house bedrooms.

There is good road to access the property and once there, more than  adequate parking space.
