La Limonaia, villa with Heated Spa

Bedrooms 1
Space 376 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

A few kilometers from Todi, Perugia, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno, Orvieto.

History has told us that long cold winters have proved to be the worst conditions for keeping Lemons. In ancient times, the lemon vases of Case Nucci were kept inside this building to prolong their life. Nowadays the Lemon House has been transformed into a beautiful place at 350 meters above the sea level, a place to relax and take in the majestic surroundings of Umbria and all it has to offer.

It boasts a quaint double room with a kitchenette, bathroom, and a single bed located on the mezzanine level for added capacity. Breathtaking views of the lower valleys can be seen through the windows of La Limonaia. Outside there is a large garden area with a BBQ, Dining Area, & Spa (available all year).

Free wifi

The La Limonaia household is just 5 minutes from the town centre of Marsciano where you can find all the required shops you need including restaurants, supermarkets, & petrol stations. It’s a perfect starting point to discovering a number of interesting places.

About Riccardo Nucci

Perched on top of a hill, between Perugia and Todi, in the heart of Umbria, there’s a location called “Civitella Dei Conti”. A small village where the Nucci family has been living and farming the surrounding land since the early 1600’s.

The main property is the family residence – “Palazzo Nucci” – which is situated in an elevated position from which it overlooks the Valley of the Tevere.

This complex was also known as Castle of Santa Maria dell’Oliveto or Santa Maria di Cicciano, in honour of the Mary to who is dedicated the nearby church.

The agricultural work in this area was based on the production of wheat, grapes and olive oil. These same old olive trees are still used today for the production of our high quality extra virgin olive oil.

To better support these activities around “Case Nucci”, in the 1600’s our family built a series of buildings, made in local stone, destinated to be storage for the harvest and the home for the farmer’s family. That’s what today we call “La Limonaia” (old storage for lemons), “Il Granaio” (the old storage for cropped wheat), and “Casa Boschetto” (the family house of our farmers back in the time).

These structures, recently refurbished, have became holiday houses to welcome people from all around the world and they have all the comfort of a modern house with the vintage style from that time.

To complete the fashinating stay at “Case Nucci” is the lush landscape surrounding the property and the short distance from interesting towns like Perugia, Assisi and Todi.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

La limonaia è una vera e propria isola felice immersa nella natura. Il luogo ideale per staccare dalla routine quotidiana e godere in pieno relax grazie all'idromassaggio a disposizione.

Riccardo, il proprietario, ha fatto di tutto per rendere il nostro soggiorno indimenticabile ed è stato un peccato non averlo contattato prima per fare in modo di organizzarci anche una passeggiata a cavallo in questi posti incontaminati

La limonaia and the others houses of Case Nucci are a beautiful place to spend some time far from the daily routine. The host is great and he does everything he can help you during the staying. The jacuzzi is the top! Unforgettable experience and definitely recommended.

Thank you Riccardo!
