About the Property

5bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, stunning views of hills and velleys.

On top of the world! That is exactly how it feels. This recently restored Casa Padronale sits atop a hillside with sweeping views into the valley below. From the beautiful Farmhouse style kitchen with adjoining Loggia for breakfast to the wonderful Drawing room with enormous fireplace the sense of peace and tranquillity is apparent. The grounds surrounding the house offer wonderful walks, therefore all guests have plenty of private space and yet the communal areas offer great entertaining possibilities. The pool area overlooking olive grove and vines is a panacea for the senses. The house has been restored using traditional materials of the region and has excellent green credentials with a low carbon footprint. The tasteful furniture and sense of style are apparent everywhere. The old adage of Location, location says it all when one gazes at the Vista below the house. All bedrooms have overhead ceiling fans and all rooms have insect screens. For children there are cots, high chairs and a buggy as well as an abundance of games. For the adults, think of wine tastings, cooking courses and so much more. You may never want to leave! For those who like to combine relaxation with sightseeing, there are many wonderful towns within easy driving distance such as Cortona, Citta Di Castello and Perugia.

We can even offer Italian immersion courses at the Villa so that when one does venture forth, one is prepared to mix in with the local people and practise.
The house also has an abundance of books and plenty of secluded areas to sit and read.
There are our main bedrooms, a bedroom/study which has a convertible sofa bed and the Hay loft also has futons which are perfect for young people. There are four double bedrooms and a twin room and three bathrooms.
As a personal touch for our guests we offer toiletries and a welcome pack.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: Torricella is owned by Iain and Sophie and their three children. We were lucky enough to be posted to Naples for three years and immediately fell in love with Italy. It was towards the end of our stay there, after having travelled all over Italy, that we decided Umbria was where we wanted to put down roots. Torricella, even in its dilapidated state, was all that we were looking for in an Italian house. A four year restoration project brought it back to life and has given us a family home in the most wonderful setting. Although we currently live in Paris, we intend to live permanently in Torricella one day, sharing this special place with family and friends. Torricella provides the perfect holiday location for families with young children or teenagers, and for groups of friends.

Why Ronti PG, Italy:
You will know as soon as you arrive at Torricella – the view simply takes your breath away! The house sits on the saddle of a hill at the angle of two valleys above an olive grove, affording magnificent views to both the south and the west. We have sited both the pool and the terrace to take best advantage of this panorama. Umbria remains so unspoilt and relatively undiscovered; it has a wealth of culture, tradition and cuisine that is unique to it and yet the great art cities of Italy are within easy reach. We have found the local people to be extremely open and welcoming, and we have enjoyed making new friendships every time we visit.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The setting. The early morning mist in the valley sits below the house, and the hills opposite resemble floating islands. In the evening, the bells of the churches ring out as the sun sets on the terrace. We have five acres of grounds so children are free to explore and make plenty of noise. Renovation. Our builder is a craftsman who has restored Torricella beautifully using traditional materials and techniques. The floors have hand laid terracotta and the beams are chestnut supporting traditional tiled ceilings. Green credentials. An important aspect of the renovation was low carbon footprint but without compromising on aesthetics. Most of our hot water comes from solar panels hidden on the roof, as does a significant proportion of the electricity. We also have a heat pump.
