Charming and completely restored 13th century castle olive mill, transformed into a luxurious country house, located just outside the ring wall of Castello di Montegiove.
Montegiove is a lovely and peaceful medieval country village, close to the main communication lines and equidistant of Rome (154 km) and Florence (151 km), it is an ideal base for exploring the historical treasures of Umbria and Tuscany, especially the countryside of the historical provinces of Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto, Perugia and Siena.
The house is equipped with satellite television, high speed Internet connection, independent heating, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, laundry facilities and drying rack. The house is furnished in the traditional style of a central Italian manor house with a tasteful combination of antique and modern furniture. Extra maid service and private cook can also be arranged.
The rental includes heating, weekly change of sheets and towels, normal final cleaning and taxes.
Moraiolo: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living/dining-room, kitchen, sleeps: 6.
The ground floor is composed of a large living-dinning room with open fireplace and library, a kitchen with access to a small patio, a master double bedroom with view over the valley and a spacious bathroom with shower. The first floor is composed of a long hall, two double bedrooms one with a beautiful view over the valley, the other with French windows pointing towards the castle. A well-designed modern bathroom with marble sink, bath tub and shower.
The garden has a dining area, comfortable deck chairs and a beautiful view over the valley.
The castle of Montegiove has existed since the early 12th century and has in the last four centuries been the property of the Marchesi Misciattelli.
Today, still family-owned, it is the centre of an estate covering nearly 3000 acres of beautiful Umbrian countryside, where oak forests, vineyards, olive fields and arable land blend in total harmony with ancient dry walls and farmhouses built of local stone.
The principal products of the estate are wine, olive oil, cereals, oil seeds, Chianina beef cattle, forage and forest products. There is abundant wildlife such as boar and deer, and the local flora including truffles and mushrooms. The beautiful surroundings and unspoiled environment make it hard to believe that Montegiove is only 17 km from Italy's main motorway A1 (Milan - Naples), which also connects Rome and Florence.
During your stay in the Montegiove olive mill you will get the opportunity to be the Misciattelli family's private guest and get a guided tour in the winecellar, at the castle and the surrounding estate.

The castle of Montegiove has existed since the early 12th century and has for the last four centuries been the property of the Marchesi Misciattelli. Today, still family-owned, it is the centre of an estate covering nearly 1200 hectares of beautiful Umbrian countryside, where oak forests, vineyards, olive fields and arable land blend in total harmony with ancient dry walls and farmhouses built of local stone. The principal products of the estate are wine, olive oil, cereals, beef cattle, oil seeds, forage and forest products. There is abundant wildlife such as wildboar and deer, and the local flora include truffles and mushrooms. At the surrounding land you will find marked trekking footpaths of various lengths. The beautiful surroundings and unspoiled environment make it hard to believe that Montegiove is only 17 km from Italy’s main motorway A1 (Milan – Naples), which also connects Rome and Florence.
Other Activities: Shopping, Wildlife Viewing, Wine production, Wine tasting
Golf: The nine holes course of the Golf Club Lamborghini, which was designd by Eng. Ferruccio Lamborghini, stretches over a beautiful, hilly landscape close to Lake Trasimeno and is placed inside the same property that includes also an agriturismo for vacationers.
The golf course was originally constructed in a meandering fashion to intentionally cover a widely spread area of land. Recent changes in its design make the course much more challeging to today’s golfers, inviting experts alike to its greens. Source: www.lamborghinionline.it

About the owner: In 2002 we moved from Copenhagen in Denmark, where we both grew up, to Montegiove to take over the daily management of the family estate “Castello di Montegiove”. We have never regretted this decision, even though the first years in Montegiove were not at all like a fairytale. The castle and the old Olive mill had to be completely restored; the roofs all had big holes so we spent all rainy days running around with pots and pans to pick up the water. Today the castle and Olive mill has been through a thorough and respectful renovation. Lorenzo: I spent almost all my childhood summers together with my grandfather in Montegiove, following daily life at the estate and in the wine cellar. I still recall adventuring round in the castle and walks in the splendid and unspoiled nature around Montegiove. I always hoped, that one day, I could take care of the estate, and that happened after years of study at the “Royal Veterinarian and Agricultural University” and the “University of Aberdeen” ending up with a Ph.D. and a short carrier as scientist and assistant professor, before moving to Italy. Rikke: I worked with pattern making and designs in the fashion industry before moving to Italy. My big passion is decorating and putting things in order so moving to a place like this where everything needed a loving hand has been a fantastic challenge for me. Today I am the practical person in the household making all ends meet for our busy modern family. We still feel so lucky waking up in the morning and looking out at the beautiful valley, and we are never getting tired of the absolute silence and peace that is so rare to find in the modern world of today. Sometimes the clouds are hanging lower than Montegiove and it feels like we are on an island in the middle of the sea.
