Luxury Property in Umbria Italy

25 photos
Castle for sale in Italy located in the heart of Umbria, on a hill covered by meadows and forests of chestnut trees and oaks. The ancient fortress built from the XII century and, even today, it is surrounded by the charm of the stories of feudal knights. Although the construction of the castle began in medieval times, the structure has three distinct original architectural parts representing the three different historical perdiods in which it was made: the Middle Ages, dated back to the XII century, the Renaissance in the XV and XVI century and the Gothic period dated back to the XIX century. In recent years, the charming historical residence has been skillfully restored without modifying the authenticity, but retaining the original architectural and historic-artistic value enriched by the high value landscape of the local environment which together create one of the nicest luxury properties for sale in the country.
 
A land of 8500 m2 adjacent to the Tiber valley surrounds the walls of the castle with a park planted with tall trees (oaks and holm oaks) and a garden with statues, walkways, seating and garden benches. The terrace garden reaches the feet of the walls, where a beautiful swimming pool is surrounded by ancient Venetian marble statues depicting the Four Seasons. Near the pool area there is a wide thermal jacuzzi with colour-therapy and aromatherapy. To complete the relax area it is a gazebo lighted by an elegant chandelier from Murano up, antique Seven-Nineteenth-century pitchers, sun-umbrellas and hammocks.
 
The castle represents a truly exclusive real estate opportunity and has a structure in stone and old bricks with a surface of 2000 m2. The interiors recall the magical atmosphere of the Middle Ages: old armors, exclusive furniture and sophisticated furnishings have been carefully chosen to recreate the scenes of the feudal tradition. Large living rooms and historic rooms with painted ceilings or vaults, with Venetian chandeliers of different ages or majolica of the ancient pottery art of Deruta, alternate with precious bedrooms equipped with all modern comfort, in order to create suggestive emotions that lead the imagination to a fantastic world where knights and ladies come to life.

Umbria Perugia

Perugia dominates the Tiber Valley from a high, irregular and rough hill: the particular feature of the land has generated a wide variety of urbanistic situations, giving the town a very special aspect. The rich artistic and cultural patrimony and the natural environment make Perugia an unique city of major importance, and this from the beginning of its history. Perugia lies on a hill inhabited ever since the prehistoric times; it was first a settlement of the Umbrians, then it passed under the rule of the Etruscans, becoming one of the most important cities in the High Tiber Valley.

Conquered by the Romans, Perugia was deeply involved in the civil war between Antonio and Ottaviano; this latter took possession of the town in 40 B.C. and this, after being heavily destroyed, was given the name of "Augusta". After the fall of the Roman Empire Perugia was destroyed again by Totila in 547; then it belonged to the Byzantine dominions, and finally it became a powerful independent city-state allied to the Papal State. The 14th century was characterised by violent struggles between Nobles (Beccherini) and Populars (Raspanti) and by the war against the Pope who wanted the Umbrian cities to be under his rule; the war finished with the Peace of Bologna in 1370, when Perugia was forced to recognise the Papal authority. Also in the following centuries the town continued to be divided into various rival factions fighting to come to power: the Popular government leaded by Biordo Michelotti was replaced by the sway of the soldier of fortune Braccio Fortebraccio; the leading families were always making conspiracies and massacres, causing a grave moral and political decline. In 1540 Perugia was placed under the direct control of the Papal State and pope Paolo III ordered to Antonio da Sangallo the erection of the Rocca Paolina, symbol of the papal power over the city. The papal rule continued – brief breaks excepted during the French occupation and the Roman Republic – until the formation of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. Perugia today is a modern and cosmopolitan city known all over the world because of its cultural events and the University for Foreigners. Proud of its historical traditions and the beautiful buildings of the past, Perugia let itself be admired in its thousand picturesque corners where present and past integrate one another and create an unforgettable atmosphere.
