Bosco delle Monache stands on a hill in the middle of unspoiled nature surrounded by woods that alternate with typical vegetation of the area. In this suggestive naturalistic context on the green Umbrian hills, where peace and silence reign supreme, you can easily feel at one with nature and enjoy this little corner of paradise. In the enclosures, inside the property, there are animals left free to graze and you will soon learn to love goats and sheep up close. In addition, under one of the many shaded areas created in the garden there is a small fenced pond with goldfish, water lilies and papyrus. We are located in Torri, a small hamlet of Gualdo Cattaneo, a few steps from Todi, which can boast of having a castle of great charm and rare beauty, founded in 1250 but with origins dating back to the Stone Age. Bosco delle Monache, completed in 2010, has kept intact the rustic and natural flavor of the place, evident in the exposed stone and travertine of the exteriors and inside the chestnut wood beams and terracotta tiles for the ceilings. The rooms are modern, comfortable and tastefully decorated. From the living area with living room, dining area and kitchen there is direct access to the well-kept outdoor area. The garden offers delightful scents and colors and the American vine gently climbs the walls. The portico is equipped for outdoor dining while enjoying a breathtaking view towards the towns of Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo and Trevi. The pool is located on a slightly lower level than the villa, a few meters away, simply going down a staircase from the portico. From here it is easy to move around to visit the numerous places of natural, artistic and religious interest in the area. Todi is less than 20 minutes from the property, in a short time you can reach and visit the beautiful towns of central Italy, such as Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto. Furthermore, the excellent motorway connections guarantee easy travel to the nearby regions of Tuscany and Lazio.
It is spread over two floors, the ground floor and the basement which is on the same level as the swimming pool. The front door opens into an air-conditioned lounge, dining room and open kitchen. From here you can comfortably access the porch equipped with brick barbecue, chairs and table for outdoor dining. The floor is completed by two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom, a study with a 1.40 m sofa bed and two bathrooms with shower. In the basement, with entrance only from the outside, a few meters from the swimming pool, we find a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower, a bathroom for swimming pool use, a laundry room and a covered area with table tennis. Air conditioning in all bedrooms. Above the roof of the villa, with access only from an external staircase, there is a terrace that is not equipped but simply created to enjoy the view.
The peace, the silence, the intact nature that this place offers is the same as it was centuries ago when this area was owned by the nuns, hence the origin of the name Bosco delle Monache. The property measures approximately 6 hectares and a fence runs along the entire perimeter of the garden which extends for 8000 square meters. In the enclosures, just outside the garden, there are animals, goats and sheep, left free to graze, be admired and to keep the wood clean. Many shady areas have been created with benches and tables and we also find a small fenced pond with goldfish, water lilies and papyrus. Tall trees such as oaks, holm oaks and fruit trees such as cherry trees, figs, pomegranates, plums prevail and all around the villa there are jasmine, wisteria and American vines. At the exit of the kitchen there is the porch, very panoramic, positioned above the swimming pool, equipped with a canopy with wooden beams and an area for outdoor dining. It is furnished with a sofa, armchair, chairs, benches, table and brick barbecue. After a few tens of meters from the automatic gate, in front of the house there is a parking area with four parking spaces.NB: It should be noted that the photo shoots are usually made in spring, therefore the colors and blooms of the gardens, lawns and parks may be different at the time of your entry into the villa.
The panoramic swimming pool of Bosco delle Monache, overlooking green hills and the towns of Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo and Trevi, is located in a lower position than the ground floor. It can be reached by going down 12 steps and is located on the same level as the basement which is only 5 meters away.
