Penna in Teverina villa description

Perfectly located in a hillside olive grove, apparently in splendid isolation with breathtaking views of hills, the town of Orte, and the Tiber Valley, Casale alle Morre is in fact attached to a charming and lively little village and is in easy reach of Rome, Florence, Orvieto, the Etruscan cities of Viterbo and Tarquinia, and all the Umbrian hilltowns. A gentle path leads up to the magnificent “lap” pool in natural stone and sand-colored tiles behind the house, protected by a natural forest, dotted with olive trees, with an even greater view of the valley and the tile-roofed back of the house and its lemon-house annex. The villa was constructed completely new in 2006 from the very stones of a ruined farmhouse on the property, so that it is full of light and air and modern space, but looks as though it has always been there. Its magnificent southern-facing portico dominating the valley is protected from the sun all summer and warmed by it in the cooler months.


The village of Penna: 5-10 minutes' walk up a shady lane is the flourishing village of Penna (population 1000), equipped with post office, bank, parish church, pharmacy, and shops in a thriving community of local people of all generations active in the agricultural and civic life of their village. The calendar year is studded with festivals, such as the open air banquet to celebrate the vendemmia (or grape harvest) in mid-October, outdoor music and dancing for the village holiday in early August, streets strewn with flowers for the Corpus Domini in June. Penna’s tiny historical center, in the shape of a feather (hence its name) is anchored between the very active parish church and the belvedere (panoramic overlook on the Tiber river valley and Mount Cimino beyond). The town also boasts an impressive mechanical Presepe (Nativity Scene) open to visits all year round.

An Umbrian family story: The villa is on a working farm (olives and grapes), that has been in our family for almost two centuries. The historic family home is close by, in the village.
The adjacent 'limonaia' houses potted lemon trees in the winter, ping-pong in the summer. The apartment above the limonaia is not for rent and is occasionally occupied by the owners.
This is the authentic Italy, far from its mass tourism and yet in easy range of so many of its legendary beauties.

                          Car: Recommended

                          On the border with Lazio, the villa stands at the gateway of all the Umbrian hilltowns (Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Narni, Gubbio), but also an easy distance from the volcanic Etruscan towns of Viterbo and Tarquinia and the Tuscan seaside (Capalbio, Ansedonia, the island of Giglio). It is also close to the Appenines and river rafting on the Nera near the waterfalls of Marmore, some of the highest in Europe. Because of the vicinity of the Orte train station (15 minutes' away by car) Rome and Florence are easy daytrips -- without the worry of a car.
