Two-story traditional farmhouse with 2 bdr, 2 bathroom, private garden and view
Casale is situated on a 100 acres hillside farm, called Maridiana, first alpaca farm in Italy.
MARIDIANA has been running since 1983, when the Berna family decided to leave the congested city of Rome for a more rewarding life in the countryside of Umbria. In 2008 the property has been certified 4 “spighe” by the Umbria Region on a system of quality certification of agro-tourisms (farm stays and B&Bs) from 1 to 5.
The CASALE was originally built as the tobacco drying barn for the farm. The two-story building has been completely restored. The external features have been maintained, while inside has been totally modernized.
CASALE has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a separate kitchen, dining and living rooms. It can comfortably sleep 5 people.
The house is decorated with traditional antique furniture of the family and are completely furnished with all modern comforts.
During sunny days, you may also choose to eat outside, overlooking the valley.
Maridiana is situated in the Northern part of Umbria close to the border with Tuscany. The historical hill towns of Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Cortona and Lake Trasimeno are all within easy reach.
At Maridiana is possible to rent a second house adjacent to Casale. Together the two houses can sleep up to 12 people. Contact us for more information.
In addition, each house has its own private garden, independent entrance and parking space, free WI-FI.

About Federico Berna
Maridiana was established in 1984 when Gianni and Marisa Berna decided to leave Rome for a more rewarding life in the Umbrian Countryside. They carefully restored 3 traditional stone-farmhouses, one as their home and other two houses for rental. Since then they were visited by many tourists from States, Australia and Europe with whom they have established strong relationship. Marisa has been a teacher in the local schools, and now (retired) she is the promoter of a local film Film Festival (Montone Film Festival). Gianni, as development economist, has promoted local projects in new agriculture: ecotourism, renewable energies, natural fibers. Today MARIDIANA is the largest (and first) alpaca farm in Italy.
Federico Berna purchased this Cottage in 1981
Why Federico Berna chose Umbertide
Because of the beauty of the property and its surrounding which are rich in nature, art and history. The view of the Niccone Valley that can be enjoyed from Casa Archi is just breathtaking.
