Property description

L'ARIETE stands for peace, space and relaxation. The property in the heart of Renaissance Italy consists of 2 residential buildings and offers 6 independent spacious suites with 1 or 2 bedrooms (45-80 m² each) and fully equipped kitchens plus a private restaurant. L´Ariete is set amongst 20 acres of private land including a vineyard, with uninterrupted views towards Montone, elected one of Italy´s most beautiful medieval hamlets.
Elegant rooms invite you to enjoy a bottle of fine 'Grechetto' and read the book you planned to read for so long. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the 100 m² pool, browse through the library, or just find yourself a quiet place among the trees, smell the scent of lavender, watch our sheep peacefully resting in the shade of the orchard, listen to the birds and have a nap in one of the hammocks or deck chairs. A vegetable garden is available for our guests, a small grocery shop offers selected regional and home-made products, the restaurant is exclusively open to our guests for a typical Umbrian dinner. Belle vacanze!

Car: Recommended

L'ARIETE is set amidst the Umbrian hills, in between the quiet and picturesque medieval hamlet of Montone and the vibrant Umbrian capital Perugia, just across the border to Tuscany and the Marche. Montone, voted one of Italy´s most beautiful medieval villages, is just a 5 min drive up the hill and offers good infrastructure for daily needs - grocery, bakery & pharmacy, post office & bank, a couple of restaurants & bars. Perugia, full of history, art, food markets, shops and typical Restaurants, can be reached via a toll-free highway in just 25 min. Lago Trasimeno is 45 min away from L'ARIETE and offers the chance for a refreshing swim and a relaxing boat-trip. Day excursions will get you to most of Central Italy´s famous places: The world heritage site of Assisi and Arezzo (45 min), the impressive architecture of Orvieto and Spoleto (1 h), the breathtaking beauty of Florence (1.5 h); for the nature lovers trips to discover the mountain scenery of the Appenin (45 min).

Other Activities: Truffle hunt

Golf: The 18 hole Championship Golf Course of Antognolla, designed by the famous course architect Robert Trent Jones jr. is just a 20min drive away.

The course is dominated by the medieval castle of Antognolla and is an unrivaled experience for both the professional and amateur golfer alike. Beautiful area, far reaching views, natural flora and the spectacular medieval and typical Umbrian architecture both inside and around the golf course.

Besides the course at the Antognolla Club you will also find a well equipped Pro shop, a practice driving range and putting green, as well as the charming Club House & Bar

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Two Austrians - plus a Hungarian shepherd dog - with a love for Italy - Martina, an artist and arts historian who studied and worked in Perugia at the Academy of Arts; Andreas - ecologist and ambitious organic farmer. We aim to provide our guests with a perfect environment for a relaxed and truly unforgettable vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Montone:
Our countryhouse offers exactly what we were looking for - in the middle of nature, undisturbed, but not secluded, and close enough to vibrant cities and all the amenities of modern life which you sometimes need - even if you love to live in the countryside.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We have our special style - we value the old and love the modern, we believe in purity and simplicity, but make no concessions to quality - and that´s how we run our restaurant, furnish our apartments, create our gardens and design our pieces of inspirations - works of art you will find all over the property.
