Perugia castle description

For those in search of an enchanting castle retreat on the borders of Tuscany, Pieve San Quirico castle is the perfect choice!

At Pieve San Quirico castle you may experience a special Villa holiday experience ! A fully equipped medieval castle set in the heart of a huge verdant estate, with a kind and caring staff & an in-house concierge that may make every day a different day for you. A life experience that speaks to all the senses and that you take away with you !

Pieve San Quirico is a magnificent historic castle encircling a courtyard, built by emperor Federico 2nd di Svevia in the 11th century, beautifully renovated to create a private house; it has been restored to the highest standard of renovation and design to create a luxury villa with 7 rooms and 9 bathrooms, with total privacy and breathtaking views.

The Castle lies on a hill overlooking the Tiber valley, on the borders of Tuscany, conveniently close to Assisi, in the centre of a superb 1500 acres estate actually including a collection of castles and woodland, complete with lakes and a natural reserve, midway between Florence and Rome. The owners of the estate are descendants from Napoleon Bonaparte and the castle has been in their family since 1901.

The Castle comfortably sleeps 15 in 7 luxury rooms, all with AC and ensuite bathroom; it is extraordinarily equipped and beautifully interior designed with everything from high speed wireless internet, to whirlpool bathtubs, antiques, panoramic dining veranda, ice maker; the kitchen is exceptionally equipped and there are a bar lounge and a laundry room also.

Four apartments set in a 11th century Tower just up the hill are available for large groups on request. The whole property is named 'Le Torri di Bagnara'.

Table tennis, billiards, mountain bikes and children playground will keep you entertained. Yoga lessons, cooking classes and massages are also available (to be pre-booked).

Outside, you’ll find panoramic terraces, dining areas, gardens rich in flowers, fruit and olive trees, an infinity salt water pool with fantastic hillside views that catches the rays from dawn to dusk, stone BBQ and children’s playground. There is even a beautiful church perfect for tying the knot should the fancy take you.

The Castle huge estate ('The Bagnara Estate'), is at Guests’ full disposal and it is criss-crossed with walking and biking trails, woods for berry-picking, a sprinkling of lakes and a farm where olives, honey and orchard-grown fruit and vegetables are harvested. “Chianina” cattle, chicken and goose are reared on the farm, while wild boar, roe deer and partridge roam in the woods.

The Castle is fully staffed: daily housekeeping , breakfast service, full gardening and pool maintenance services are included in rates. In house cooker (professional chef), baby sitter, car with a driver and many additional activities are available on request (to be pre-booked).

The surroundings are completely rural and tranquil but Guests have the convenience of the village, bar, shops, restaurants and sport centre being only five minutes drive away. An excellent and challenging Golf course (18 hole), designed by Robert Trent Jones jr., is only ten minutes drive away.

The Castle can be easily reached from the main roads. It is 4 km far from the E45 freeway (Ravenna-Viterbo, exit “Resina”), which is directly connected to the A1 motorway (Roma-Firenze) and A14 motorway (Bologna-Bari). 'San Francesco di Assisi' international airport is only 18 km far.
