Dalmanutha (Dalmanuta in Italian) is an old biblical city on the Sea of Galilee, mentioned in the Gospel of Mark, where Jesus went with his disciples to rest after feeding the four thousand. The owners were inspired by this episode to give the house its name (Dalmanuta), designating it as a place to regenerate the senses and where the hectic pace of every day life seems far away. It could not be otherwise. Silence and nature reign supreme in the well-kept park with infinity pool and, in the living areas set up under the two porches communicating with the kitchen and living room, you can fully appreciate and enjoy the wild, rural scenery of the Umbrian countryside that stretches as far as the eye can see. Inside the house, originally an old farmhouse that has been renovated and enlarged, local natural materials predominate: terracotta floors, travertine on the bathroom walls and solid wooden ceiling beams. Then there is the basic décor which is at the same time elegant and refined, in both the furnishings and the colours, decorating the rooms without encumbering them and creating an intimate and harmonious picture. Travel to the most beautiful art cities of central Italy is easy: Perugia, Todi, Orte and Orvieto. In Marsciano, or in the neighbouring villages, you can find all necessary services: supermarkets, shops with local products and wonderful old town centres where you can stroll through the tiny streets and alleys and sample traditional dishes in the little characteristic restaurants.
The house has two floors, connected internally by a terracotta staircase. The main entrance on the ground floor leads into the dining room and then, on the right, to the well-equipped, eat-in kitchen and, on the left, to the comfortable living room with fireplace. Both the dining room and the living room open out onto one of the two porches whilst the other one is connected to the kitchen. Completing the floor is a double bedroom with access to the garden and a bathroom with shower. The first floor consists of a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with tub, a double bedroom with divisible bed and ensuite bathroom with shower and a double bedroom and ensuite bathroom with shower. All the bedrooms are provided with air conditioning.
Air conditioning only in the bedrooms.
The park of the property covers 8000 sq m, 6000 of which planted with olive trees whilst the rest forms the luxuriant garden which, following the sloping terrain, is distributed on two terracings with the parking area and the swimming pool on the higher one and the house on the lower one. Rows of stone walls and hedges delimit the different areas enlivened by olive trees, maples, oaks, cypresses and flowering herbs, roses and broom, illuminated at night and connected by brick stairways. You can play at the poolside, read a good book in the sitting area or enjoy alfresco meals under the porch equipped with wood oven. Just inside the automatic iron gate is an open air parking area but you can also drive up to the house along a paved ramp.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
The infinity pool, overlooking the landscape, is located on terracing higher than the house in a quiet, discreet corner, ideal for long relaxing moments. It can be reached either via a short ramp of steps or, up a few steps, along a path crossing the garden. Rectangular-shaped, it measures 6 x 12 m with the depth varying from 1.30 m 2.30 m; it has chlorine purification and is lined in PVC. Access to the water is by Roman steps in an original fan shape in one of the corners. There is internal lighting and also external lighting in the 100 sq m solarium area, paved in terracotta and equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs and a large umbrella, and hot shower. The pool is open all year round.
