We are in the beautiful little town of Bevagna, included in “I Borghi più Belli d'Italia” (the most beautiful borghi in Italy), in the centre of the Umbrian Valley, with Assisi in front and Spoleto behind, a place where time slows down, full of charm and magical atmospheres. The magnificent Tenuta Bellafonte, newly built and unique in its kind, is located in this wonderful setting, near the tiny delightful borgo of Torre del Colle. From here you have a breathtaking view over vineyards and olive groves alternating with the woods and green hills so typical of the area. A home of great class which preserves the authenticity and charm typical of rural houses. Parquet in oak, porcelain tiles and chestnut wood, expertly adapted to cover floors and ceilings, are the materials that give voice to the architecture of this prestigious building, clad in sandstone, air-conditioned with an underfloor cooling system and characterized by a huge, elegant living room with large windows facing the garden, an open-plan kitchen and dining room and comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms. The rooms have been designed in a style blending antique and modern, combining fine furnishing with accessories of contemporary design. The pride of the property is the annex, connected internally to the main house, with a prestigious indoor pool and, on the floor below, a Turkish bath and gym, a welcoming and relaxing environment where you can recover your psychophysical balance. This dream pool can be used during both the summer months and the less warm periods, in autumn and winter, to ensure relaxation and fun in the water regardless of the weather and season. A lush and well-kept garden with an endless carpet of green grass surrounding the house, an outdoor dining area under the portico, various cosy outdoor living areas and a super panoramic terrace - this and more is offered by the magnificent outdoor area of Tenuta Bellafonte. A splendid home for those in search of a relaxing holiday in full contact with nature. We are just a few kilometres from Bevagna, a delightful borgo, unique and full of charm from where you can go off to explore the fascinating places of Umbria and Tuscany: typical little villages with their walls and picturesque panoramas and beautiful art towns like Spoleto, Assisi, Perugia, Rome and Florence. A delicious wine, which can be tasted directly in the cellars (visit and tasting on request), is produced next to the house in the extensive farm estate. Moreover, those who are lucky enough to be staying at Tenuta Bellafonte between the last two Sundays in June will be able to attend the Mercato delle Gaite in Bevagna, an historical reenactment that aims to reconstruct the daily life of medieval man. As a historical reference, this event encompasses the years from 1250 to 1350 and is a reenactment contest between the 4 gaite (districts) in which Bevagna was once divided. Services and shops for basic needs can be found in Cantalupo, just 4 km away. NB in the property, in the same building, but at a lower level than the house itself, is the Cantina Bellafonte and its offices but the house is completely independent with private entrance. In addition, on request, the villa has an adjacent room of 100 sqm, ideal for organizing ceremonies and parties. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.
