Property description

Podere Vigliano, a 275 year old farmhouse, is beautifully restored in the old style situated on 10 acres in the Umbrian countryside bordering Tuscany.

Enter the cypress lined entrance to the enchanting private grounds. Walk among the olive groves, vineyard, fruit trees, oak forest, and manicured gardens, or relax by the private swimming pool or in an easy chair under the pergola sipping wine, and enjoying the peaceful views.

Choose between the four alfresco dining spots on the groomed property- each with views of the surrounding hills and the ever present golden silhouette of the hill town above. Relax and refresh by the private swimming pool. Start your day with an outdoor shower by the pool, cappuccinos, figs plucked from the tree, pecorino cheese and local honey-or hike up to the town cafe. Pick what is ripe from our fruit trees and vegetable garden. Cook with herbs growing outside in our kitchen garden.

Each bedroom offers a clean, effortless style of its own with window views for fresh air and light streaming in. Several comfy spots inside to gather or find some alone time. Peace abounds.

Ideally located midway between Florence and Rome, it is easy to visit the famous hill towns of Umbria and Tuscany and return home to the countryside to relax. The A-1 autostrada and the main train station in Chiusi are close by for easy access.

We are a 30 minute walk up to the walled town with several great restaurants, bars, wine bar, and grocery stores. Monteleone hosts several well known festivals. Cooking classes or a cook at the farmhouse can be arranged, as well as customized tours or itineraries.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I was a single woman for 12 years with two wonderful grown children, until I met the man of my dreams, Greg, who dramatically proposed to me on my terrace in Italy. We live most of the year in Manhattan, and stay at Podere Vigliano when we can. I recently retired from a 34 year career as a Dental Hygienist and enjoy giving back by going to remote areas of the world on Medical/Dental Missions with Flying Doctors of America. I love travel, food, wine, good company and Italy. It gives me much pleasure to share this magical land with people and take small groups on tour around my area.

Why the Owner Chose Monteleone d Orvieto:
Fifteen years ago I took my first trip to Italy and fell in love with the land, culture and most of all the people. I made some Italian friends and decided to come back and look for property. Staying with them, I found my farmhouse nearby. I never intended to rent it out but found that a house needs to be lived in and started sharing it with others. It has been such a reward to help guests experience the joys of Italy. I am selective of who I let stay at my property. They must have an adventurous, joyful spirit.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Staying at Podere Vigliano allows you to experience the authentic life of an Umbrian. You look up to the medieval hill town of Monteleone d'Orvieto from the terrace and hear the church bells ring every 15 minutes. It is a short walk up the hill to the town who's focus remains for the locals, few tourists here. My neighbors are still farming as they have for many generations and you will hear very little English spoken here. This is the real Umbrian/Tuscan countryside experience. You can't help but live according to the pace of the Italian countryside.
