Far 2 km from Orvieto, in an elevated position and surrounded by the beautiful Umbrian hills, stands a historic estate of spectacular beauty.
Reaching the property you have the feeling of walking through history, along the ancient streets of Etruscan and medieval importance.
Once we arrive at the residence we are faced with a postcard view.
From here, in addition to the beautiful and lush wooded areas, you can clearly see the city of Orvieto, climbing on the tuff cliff and its famous Duomo.
The structure, like the town where it is located, is called Settecamini, a name deriving from the Middle Ages when the estate appears to have been used as a military post, and then became a seminary in the late 1960s.
The property boasts a large size divided into: main body of about 1,250 square meters, a farmhouse of about 400 square meters, and two warehouses.
The manor house is imposing and majestic, and is arranged on three levels.
All the interiors are extremely large and spacious, characterized by very high vaulted ceilings or exposed beams and floors that alternate terracotta tiles and tiles embellished with elegant carpets.
The rooms are bright and elegant: the numerous living areas host refined living areas and large dining tables, while the sleeping area boasts large rooms with antechambers, living rooms or study areas.
The details that are striking are certainly: the library with reading area, the numerous stone or brick fireplaces that can be found in almost all the living areas and in some of the rooms and the unique and fascinating cave.
Crossing the large private park you reach the second building, a farmhouse with exposed stone walls. Composed of two real estate units, also here with all the typical elements of tradition such as terracotta floors and ceilings with exposed beams.
The exterior is certainly a strong point of the property.
The main villa is surrounded by a large stone and terracotta cloister where you can spend pleasant afternoons immersed in the green of the garden, and overlooking the hills.
Around the farmhouse, a huge panoramic garden with lawn, partly in English, hosts pergolas, dining areas and barbecues, in addition to the large swimming pool that overlooks the breathtaking landscape up to the Cathedral of Orvieto.
The property is surrounded by an extremely well-kept and refined private park that offers natural shaded areas thanks to the tall trees, olive trees, fruit trees such as apple or pear trees, and several flower plants.
The villa is certainly unique; the feeling is that of arriving in a historical place, characterized by the tranquility of the hilly landscape, where "feeling good", away from chaos and routine. A pristine oasis not far from the services.
